    Actually,the French have green in their stability maps in some regions of Australia and NZ.

    EDIT :
    :D
    interesting, they never lost their Paris, Germany collapsed some time ago, then they started expanding East, and well, i saw this yesterday.

    playing DoC, to those wondering the catholic cathedral...
    another interesting thing is that the ottomans are catholic from the start! even when they started invading arabia...
    and as you guys can see, the Franco-Italian army conquered collapsed Germany nicely, Italy owns Wien...
    another thing, there is a world war between Catholic Spain x Catholic France + Portugal + Cisalpine Republic (italy) + Russia + OE. the spanish took Oporto from Portugal and Marseilles...i wonder if the portuguese can continue to hold Lisboa against the spanish war machine. recently i sided with France.

    EDIT2: the spanish lost Madrid to... Italy... these monsters now own another great capital... France recovered Marseilles some time before

    EDIT3 : aww, i lost a super omg now. Spain Capitulated to Russia and at the same turn gave me 330 for peace they already had because of the capitulation o_o forgot to take SS

    Worst. Dutch. Colony. Ever. :p

    Civ4ScreenShot0029.JPG

    ... but it would be cool if the area was Dutch IRL. It was first discovered by "us". :king:

    ...and it should be called Kaap Hoorn, not Kaap Horn. :confused:

    It's called Cape Hoorn and it was first discovered by a Dutchman. He named it Kaap (Cape) Hoorn after the city of Hoorn in the Netherlands.

    I know that Kaap Hoorn is called Kaap Hoorn, I was talking about the strait that goes around it.

    3rd pic - ...but I failed! :( 0% Christianity worldwide.

    after this i wouldn't continue the game. just don't like to see christianity holy city burned whiout chance to spread in europe. (and i also hate complete non-christian europe)
    i wish there was a unit that spawned in jerusalem that could found christianity (maybe a unit that can do only one thing : build some special church, and when it is built christianity is founded in the city), i think that way there wouldn't be problems with christianity never being founded in it.

    The Carthaginians conquered their ancestors home:

    Much like United States conquering England, which also happens frequently on RFC... :p

    They'll flip to you on turn 2, so it is more like a bonus. Happened to me once with England.

    what i think it's annoying it's how razing the holy city almost always happens. if only it was somenoe else founding it before Jerusalem or spreading like hell to Europe and etc it would be better.

    Very strange religion spread for a 600 AD start.

    Almost an Islamic Japanese Shogunate:

    I was playing Spain one day, and I decided to be ahistorical and not touch the New World (though I eventually built Rosario and Rio Grande in South America), and made a continental empire. After I won the game, I decided to play on.

    Currently, I own -
    Southern South America
    Iberian Peninsula
    Central Europe
    Scandinavia
    British Isles
    European Russia and a fourth of Siberia
    Turkey
    Greece
    Mesopatamia
    Saudia Arabia
    Western Sahara (Mali)
    North Africa (Except for Egypt, who are my only allies)
    Persia
    India
    Indonesia
    Southern China

    ... And my stability rating is Very Solid. :lol:

    Ironically, I won a cultural victory and not a domination victory.

    congratulations, you relied in a strong economy to remain stable?

    i once had a RAND germany game where i owned ALL of eurasia, including islands like japan, also had some possessions under vassals outside the continent. stability +56~ was my peak (around that, i'm not sure, but it was really very high). and won UHV, Space Race, and Domination, in the SAME turn :mischief:

    I hope this doesn't annoy RFC puritarians, but here's one SoI OMG:


    Never seen such powerful Zengids. They even conquered Antakya and thus collapsed Cilicia later on.
