    Yes, corovan, the USA was known for utilizing War Elephants for powerful weapons, so this is not strange at all :D
    Besides fun, Charlestown and Fort Detroit (and Nieuw Amsterdam, most likely) mean that Washington will not flourish at all...

    Yeah I thing the OMG is the fact that America is employing War Elephants.

    Looks like you should be getting lots of wonderful Euro neighbors. At least the french might be convinced to help since your not breaking ties with them.

    And the fact that there are so many vassals. Charles Town is just English Charleston, which I see all the time.

    And Russia is on top of the list in 1775. :eek:

    I guess Russia wasn't AI before America spawned... :rolleyes:

    Christianity was founded in Moscow as well

    What? That's not possible. If Christianity is not founded until the Arabs spawn, it is founded by the Arabs, because they are the first to start with theology.

    And in that case you often get the quite interesting situation whereby Arabia adopts Christianity and spreads it throughout the middle east.

    Maybe an ancient civ founded Moscow before the Russians spawned.

    Greece could potentially have founded Moscow. If it's having a strong game it often expands into Ukraine.

    Japanese conquistadors. In the following game which was an American 3000bc spawn I had Greek coquistadors which was pretty amusing.

    Also look at Arabia in the minimap. I've never seen anything quite like it :eek:.

    I've seen them at that before, though not quite so far into North Africa (they reached Libya), however Turkey had collapsed so Mesopotamia was theirs.

    Nope, Russia was AI ;)

    That happens in 90% of my games (if not Russia - then Arabia, England or Spain). Spawning Novgorod and Kiev before Russia overboosts Russia a bit (but I like it anyway, since Russia always far behind in tech). With my changes in one start I had Vikings as tech leader :D

    On this like wonders being built extremely late, I think the game just "forgets" to tell you when they were built and tells you when you spawn, but this is rare and doesn't happen often.
