Le Sage, I followed your last couple of rounds of advice and finally got it installed. I've played four games of it so far and really enjoyed it. I keep playing the English because English Longbowman is the bomb - cheap to build and, unlike nearly every other archer in Civ, strong on offense because of his bonuses against mounted. English Cav with the right promotions goes head to head even with the 20 percent stronger French Nobles. Genoese Crossbowman is a fearsome adversary as it resists collateral damage; you can sacrifice three or four trebuchets in the city assault and still wonder if you'll lose the man who first attacks Genoese Crossbowman.
