I once got invaded by Argentina as Japan.
I once got invaded by Japan as Greece (my empire was in Australia though). My cities were still defended by archers, so I was quite scared... until I saw that they only brought a bunch of bombards. No other units whatsoever.
Yeah that's a common problem with AI naval invasions, they very often just fill their boats with exclusively Siege Weapons.
@Leoreth is there a quick and easy fix for this? Imo for naval invasions it makes more sense to completely forgo any siege whatsoever than what the AI usually does since you can use ships to bombard defenses away.
Babylonian revolt in turkish sur leaves the city in revolt for over 500 turns
When zooming in, instead of the turkish diplo music, you can hear Twisted Sister.
That should be a bug report, with a save from before this is triggered if you have it.
Didn't think to save, and I'm pretty sure I've lost the autosave from then, but I'll keep it in mind in the future
Two free promotion events in a row!
I haven't researched Companies yet though, so I can't produce Pikemen.
So yeah, this... I was watching the replay of a Korea game when I suddenly saw a whole bunch of yellow over in Europe. At first I thought the area was split between Spain and Holy Rome, but couldn't discern a border. Then I opened world builder and it turned out that it all belonged to Spain! This was around 1525. This corresponds exactly to the time at which Charles V was emperor of the Holy Roman Empire and king of Spain (as Charles I). And in 1580 there will be a Netherlands declaring independence from Spain, just like in real history. The historical accuracy of this mod is insane at times.
Edit: added a real screenshot
Yeah, I always find it very irksome when I'm playing as Germany, France or England aiming at the Scramble for Africa but Argentina, Colombia and Brazil have decided to suddenly become colonial powers outside of their own continent. That said, it's kind of neat. But then, why does America never behave that way. Always going after Canadian territory instead of initiating a colonial empire abroad?
You should be able to find the screenshots you took in ...Documents/My Games/Beyond the Sword/ScreenShots.
Funnier is when Brazil goes for places like Congo and Mozambique. Gotta keep the slave trade and slavery going i guess.
I just rolled this very interesting Phoenicia spawn.
Explains why on Eurovision Greeks always vote for Cyprus, and Cypriots always vote for Greeks!
Well, for once the Greeks behaved correctly in the game.
On the island of Alashiya, the kingdoms were long under the influence of the Hittites, but after the Bronze Age Collapse around 1200 BCE, the same island came under heavy influence from Achaia, Mykenians and later Greeks. It was later disputed with Assyrians and Persians claiming to rule Cyprus; and the Phoenicians also had trading colonies there... but Cyprus had a dominant Greek culture until Rome came along.
(On the other hand, the Greek influence on the Ionian coast was pretty disputed for the same time, and when players settle Byzantion as the second city in 1600 BCE, this is a very unhistorical behaviour because it is a thousand years too early.)
Interesting turn of events.
Santa Anna, leader of the Aztec Triple Alliance. In 1225 AD.
Same game, more weird stuff: the Ottomans didn't conquer any cities in Anatolia. They started as usual but instead of attacking Constantinople or Ankara (shouldn't it flip by the way?), Mehmed decided to go for Jerusalem.
(Actually, I'm not sure if these belong in the bug reports thread or here so sorry if this isn't the right place)
This is probably the reason why 3000BC has a huge replay value. There's so much random things that happens that it becomes great to watch
I have a feeling that my religious leaders have made a mistake while solving that puzzle...
