    I have a lot of comments regarding Wallachia here but if I post them I'd look like someone who doesn't know or care about anything else, like a nationalistic idiot, which I'm really not. :D (though some people might be fooled by my New Year avatar)

    Not wrong. :) But things can be corrected about it, nothing is actually wrong. :)

    I have to play the scen again to remember my objections, I'll do it later today or tomorrow. :)

    Nice, now I can make that bet I could have held Constantinople past 1453.

    The byzantines and the episode about them on "Engineering an Empire" is what got me into the civilization 3 game. I'm a big Byzantine fan.

    This mod looks great.

    But what I'd like to know is, where can I find a mod with Constantine in it?

    As much as I love the Byzantines, Theodora just doesn't cut it for me. She was one of the most devious of all the byzantine rulers, and her husband Justinian seems kind of inept to me. I really want Constantine, the original and greatest of all Byzantine Emperors!

    Just out of curiosity, why do you think Justinian inept? He's usually considered a great ruler - a conqueror, lawgiver*, and initiator of great building projects.


    * His codification of the Roman law is arguably the most influential legal text ever.

    The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire has Constantine, though it is one of the hardest and most time consuming mods out there. There is a 100 BC start version that would stop you from needing to play through most of the Republican times.

    Yeah, what he said. :) But he was very paranoid, if I'd been in his shoes I probably would have been too. His lack of trust for Belisarius ended forever the possibility of the Byzantines winning back the Western Roman Empire.

    Well Justinian apparently achived a great many things, the geographical expansion being one of the most apparent. But he bascially ruined the EMpire for a few decades afterwards which then led to the demise of what he had spent so much to build.

    Of course that does not have anything to do about the inner work of his ruling such as laws and all.

    Thanks for the scenerio pack! :goodjob:

    I may not have worded it the best way, but what I was basically thinking about when I wrote that is exactly what you as well as LouLong said right there. As ambitious as he was, he was also his own worst enemy. I can't not think about him or Theodora with out think about he was a puppet to Theodora.... I basically just feel like he was a little woose who did every thing his wife asked (she wore the pants in the family) and couldn't keep his citizens happy.

    To sum it up the biggest reason why I don't like Justinian is because of the incident at the Amplitheatre where his citizens were upset and protesting at his policies so he ran, but then was convinced by his wife (Theodora) to stay and slaughter everyone in the Amplitheatre. They basically had a self/emporer emposed September 11th kind of day.

    I can't get around thinking about Justinian with out thinking about that incident. It's the reason why I don't like him.

    I just didn't know how to put all that into a short sentence so I took a cheap broadened word and hoped it would make the point. ;)

    Well, I just got a new computer capable of running Civ3 again. I downloaded a few scenarios, and this was the first I played. I began a game as Florentine to get my feet wet. Once I felt acclimated to the scenario, I began anew as Genoa. I'm still playing, and things are going okay. I managed to take Florence and Pisa, and I've been transporting treasures back to Genoa.

    It's quite a good scenario you put together, Yoda Power. I'm enjoying playing it quite a bit. I'm looking forward to the Medieval European Mod II with much anticipation.

    Thanks for the nice comment Utah. :)

    And the new MEM will be even much better than this scenario!

    Thanks for the good scenario; I really enjoyed playing. I just finished my first game. Below is a link to a screenshot from the turn just before I went over 50,000 victory points.

    And I'm definitely looking forward to MEM!
