The Turks are very often tech leaders in the 600AD start.
I've seen that before, if that was a 600 AD start what probably happened is that the Byzantines had physics and then some airships in Athens. When the Turks conquer Byzantium, the Byzantines collapse and Athens flips and they get the airships. I've seen it in a Russian game of mine in which I know they didn't have physics because I got the great scientist when I researched so...
Wait, how the hell did Byzantium get Physics?
Because they're FAAAAAAAST!
Or maybe it's all those great scientists from Alexandria.
Unless they're removed quickly they'll circumnavigate the globe first, get to Liberalism first, etc. and the only time you can really take them is with cannons and cuirassiers, they'll have them as well, but you have to do it before they get riflemen and cavalry, and it doesn't take much to take them out
I wish I could take a screenshot now.
The Khmer control Boston.
Seems that the Turks abandoned its usual Indian campaigns and conquer Hangzhou, just like what AI Inca did before.
Don't they get pretty much auto-removed when Turkey spawns?
not always, if they don't take Byzantine, or if the Germans don't take Venetia, or if the French don't take Rome before the Byzantines do they last a long while. After the Turks spawn it only takes a single city loss to collapse them, but they are often so high tech that it is up to the player to defeat them, the Turkish AI seems to be actually quite passive.
true, i remember old times the turks would kill arabia and recreate the ottoman empire . but now for some reason they seem to let arabia live, and never expand that much, just around the 1700s when they start going to persia. but oh well.
Russia's doing their seven cities east of the Urals wrong.
strong? whiout siberia? you're sure you aren't russia?
but if you aren't Russia then it's the URSS invading Europe! run to anywhere you can! call bad company!
and LOL to VIKINGS in ROME!! now that's strange. never saw that, and surrounded by french culture lol
That's not Greece. It's the Vikings!
Vikings DoWed on me for some reason, then AP vote comes at the same turn.
I love the unlocked 3000 BC start.
A Taoist Russia. They were pretty much best buds with the Chinese (also Taoist) for the rest of the game, and took turns smacking Mongolia around.
A huge world war started when the American spawn more or less coincided with the first international congress. Although it started explicitly because America took New York from the English, I think they and the Germans were just butthurt that I (the Incans) was doing so much better than they were. So what you get is the Americans sending their first boatload of units over to take Mbanza from the Spanish.
You should update to the latest RFC
I thought I did have the latest version. What makes you say that?
Any way, I loaded this up on a 3000 BC start as America. Weird city placement, but I almost cried for joy when I found that Greece controlled Karkhedon, and was at the top of the score list in the 1700s. Not-quite seen here is the Roman war elephant about to capture Persepolis and the Greek Black Sea colony of Phangoria.
It's your graphics I bet, they're not the same ones as the rest of us have.
Or American conquering Mbanza Kongo in 1757?
American In the current version spawns in 1775
