    A great game and some great storytelling. When I look back at the minimap on page 16 I can't believe you turned it round. Congrats. :)

    highly enjoyable to follow. a great, great read, highlights the Glib capture and the start of the war against France.

    In case it had to be shown again, the AI is plain dumb in modern war. hope Civ4 will fix that. but that is not to say, you didn't do extraordinary well. a true classic.

    :goodjob:

    Just watched the replay...some random observations:

    * We played with SGLs enabled. Mongols (Oracle), 2x Ottomans, France - Pasteur appeared the turn before we captured Paris, whonder what he rushed :lol:.
    * Rome and Persia beat the pulp out of each other very early - both got a MGL, and Rome initally had more cities as Persia. Persepolis also built the Pyramids, but still Xerxes won that war.
    * It's really scary how fast a powerful Civ like Babylon folds agaisnt several Sid AIs.
    * Hardly seen so many cities changing hands several times as in the initial phase of our war with France.
    * The F10 poulation scoring seems buggy - it tells us we'd be only 2nd here :hmm:. Oh, and all top cities are Persian :lol:.
