    Ivan burnt a great deal of the city and massacred a lot of the population.

    Different Ivan, different invasion.

    Ivan III annexed the city in 1478, burnt a large chunk of the city and killed or deported a lot of the population. Look it up.

    @ FRENCH UHV

    If I understand the first UHV goal correctly, the goal is the recreation of Frankish Empire at it's biggest extend in 840AD ... but from the gameplay view it's almost impossible, I tried several times even including WB, yet cities seceding because of instability issues :sad:

    - how about make Bordeaux, Lyon and Marseille flip to the player in the beginning?
    - maybe one city in Lorraine flipping to the player too, with 2-3 siege units inside?
    - so the player needs to settle Bretagne, Picardia and Saxony.
    - so the player needs to conquer Barcelone, Toulouse, Milan, Florence, Ausgburg.

    - maybe give player 1 Mounted Sergant and 2 Swordsmen?

    I think it would be better to instead give the French player a larger army (so that you don't have to savescum everything with your small starting army) and some sort of special stability boost so it's actually possible to conquer it all - the Arabs could also have a stability boost in the beginning.

    Also, doesn't Calais spawn in Picardy, so you only have to conquer it, not settle (which takes longer)?

    Maybe rename the Moroccan's second UHV from - UHV2: The Marinids: Have 5000 culture in each of three cities in 1465 (it sounds odd)
    To: Have 5000 culture in three cities by 1465
    Or
    To: Ensure three cities have 5000 culture in 1465

    I think removing Tripolitania from the Moroccan 1st UHV is a good idea. Although I'm indifferent on the Venetian suggestion.

    Also, Genoa's 2nd UHV will have to be adjusted: found two corporations and build eight banks.
    The eight banks is fine, but since corporations are going to be changed to an SOI model the first half of the goal can't work. An alternative could be for Genoa to have more corporations in their cities than any other civ (raw total count). I think it would be competitive against larger civilizations.

    On second thought, 850 is more appropriate for goal 1

    I hate to dig up an older post, but looking at my suggested change for UHV 1 makes the 2nd UHV redundant, and the Arab civ deserves a better UHV to fit the "Islamic Golden Age." I think it's better than two conquest goals and a spread religion goal.

    Possibly:
    Settle two great scientists, two great engineers, and two great prophets by X date.
    Build four wonders by X date.
    Have two golden ages by 1250.
    Be the most advanced civ in 1250 (most technologies researched).

    I like the idea of the UHV fitting the Islamic Golden Age.

    Do you want gameplay to incorporate the golden age (gameplay-golden age-gameplay-victory) ?
    Do you want gameplay to end with the start of the golden age (gameplay-victory) ?
    Do you want gameplay to end at the height of the golden age (gameplay-gold...-victory!) ?
    Or do you want gameplay to end at the end of the golden age (gameplay-golden age-victory) ?

    The third UHV will give victory (and the second a golden age) and islamizing Europe can be achieved really early so the new UHV you propose has a lot of influence on when the game will end.
    (And it raises some additional questions like: When would you like the Islamic Golden Age to occur?)

    How do you get the 35% islam so early?

    Conquer the cities and give them away. Also gifting civs you have open borders with arab missionaries is more cost effective in the way of hammers per percentage islam than declaring war and conquering the civ.
