    Greece captures (presumably barbarian) Beijing and founds Taoism there.

    BUT WHY? I feel like the units present are an Alexander event gone wrong, Could the Persians have captured it first? Did Alexander fire off and the AI make peace with Persia? causing these units to wonder off? WHY????

    This was before the Alexandrian conquests. My guess is Greece sent a stack of hoplites wandering and they captured Beijing. Not sure why the AI does this, really.

    I don't get it, first I thought they were Romans and got excited, but they look like Italians.
    edit: didn't realize it was 1826

    Interesting. My current Korea game has Byzantium living uninterrupted into the 1800s as well, but they're called Despotate of Morea, not Eyalet of Rum. Guess that one is the dynamic name when they capitulate to the Ottomans.

    I'm more surprised by the huge number of living civs you got there. How does it even happen to have both Kingdom of Sweden and Norwegian Althings at the same time?

    That's because it's my Civilizations Reborn modcomp. It has Merijn's Civs, Steb's Civs, and three civs I made.

    I had a China game where the Ottomans ruled in Central Europe.

    The Carthaginians have carved themselves a slice of North Africa and kept it at least until 1708, at the end of my China game. And they're still stable, too!

    Hm, it looks like we need to implement an "Eyalet of Carthage/Kartaca" dynamic name! :lol:

    It should become either the Eyalet of Carthage or even something more specific (Eyalet of Ifriqiya?), it is only still on its normal name because it's a peace vassal.

    Very nice. I saw Carthage going till about 900 AD and then collapse. Some day I'll take them to the modern age myself.

    I once saw the AI Ottomans become the Pan-Turkic Empire or something. No clue what caused them to grow to cover their maximum extent, Persia, and West Central Asia but they were thicc.

    3000 BC Mughals start, finding that India has built Dujiangyan in Delhi!

    I wonder why Dujiangyan isn't built as much by India? In one of my China games I deliberately didn't build it to see if I didn't need it, and it still took India until like 600AD to get it. They have the tech for it...

    India has pretty poor production compared to China.

    Why 3000BC will always be fun. Where are Christianity and Islam?

    Monarch-Epic 3000 BC China:

    Game has been going nicely, and I've had plenty of time to prepare for the Mongols' appearance. Poor Temujin didn't stand a chance.



    Final tally:

    Losses:
    4x Bombard @ 257h = 1028h

    Kills:
    15x Keshik @ 214h = 3210h
    2x Mangudai @ 149h = 398h
    8x Bombard @ 257h = 2056h
    Total kills: 5664h

    I was expecting some of the early Firelancers to lose their ~60%s against 9.0hp Keshiks, but they overperformed, and I had plenty of 5xp Lancers to keep my odds above 85%. Eventually swapped back to Firelancers when they had decent win rates as well to leave enough healthy Lancers to cover the stack in case there were any unexpected Mongol reinforcements. Even one of my Chariots got to get in on the action, killing the last 2.85hp Bombard at the end and withdrawing into Baotou. Worth staying up until 2AM? Sure, why not. Merry Christmas!
