Be sure to fix the castrum hopilitarium to actually require greek goods in the city radius. In 1.24easy they are available in almost every city, even Roma! Yeah, civIV is different. Many things are better, but some extremely annoying stuff still happens.. like pikeman kills tank! For a really good show of what civIV can do check out the Fall From Heavan mod(s). Really amazing stuff! I would like to start the civIV RFRE thread some time soon, but I want to check out Warlords first to see what the Roman scenario is like. The American Revolution scenario has timeline and trigger events in it, which will serve as nice examples. Spartacus would be an example of a simple timeline event, whereas the Trimvirate collapsing into Dictator would occur a number of turns after it was the govt. In RFRE I believe most players stick with Trimvirate for far too long, but such things can be fixed.
