    No, actually the most recent version. I have no idea how he managed to do it.

    Weird, yeah that was the old trick before cape. Just keep a bunch of boats exploring the Caribbean in case the Spanish cross first and in the Arctic hoping the Vikings found Reykjavik. Usually worked out, but it's almost cheating.

    I recently finished the Maya (both with the Greenland trick, and without) and can confidently state that the Nova Scotia Cape is placed at some point around 300 to 500 AD, but is not there from the start. When you load a Militia into a Galley as soon as you researched Seafaring, you can ship the militia to Greenland and return with the galley before the Capes appear.

    In fact, I find it more surprising that AI Maya was still around in your game, than them having a Galley stuck helplessly in the Canadian waters.

    That is a bit late for them to still be hanging on, but I'd say they tend to stick around till roughly the 11th century in about half of my games. But I don't think he was collapsed when I won my Viking game either, despite me giving him my North American city (who knows how much maintenance that was for him...).

    Dujiangyan was somehow built in Samarkand?? Not sure how the AI pulled this off. Not a bad place for it at all though!

    Orthodoxy is always founded before Catholicism. Catholicism is only founded after the Great Schism.

    The Carthaginians are still kicking into the 20th century, controlling much of the northern portion of Africa.

    So this was just a meme at first, having played so many Arabia games. But now, I'm seriously considering whether or not it's a legitimate strategy...

    I'm guessing they're using low graphics settings.

    Late-game science multipliers can get pretty mind-boggling

    If I'd been more disciplined I could have got:
    Space Elevator (loads more commerce)
    Atomium (+2 science per nuclear weapon, and with all the ICBMs I'd made...)
    Oriental Pearl Tower (+2 science per city population)

    But I'd already won the UHV and wasn't really thinking, just building.
    Ended the game by just ICBMing everyone and then collapsing lol

    the big point that generates this imbalance is the wonder ITER (it is generating 792 trade), and so the multipliers just exaggerate that. if there was a limit like the shrines (which is only 20 gold, wonder could be 40 or X trade) there would be no problem, if you look at other cities it's normal. And belém did not have a national university in this case, if not, it would be bigger.
