    No, but they represent Austronesian peoples already in the game by colonizing Jayakarta and Padang.

    Jakarta was an Austronesian settlement? I always thought it was founded by settlers hailing from Asia.

    Their language is definitely Austronesian, at least, related to other languages like Hawaiian, Tahitian and Maori.

    That's interesting. Didn't know that.

    Prague. It was the capital of holy roman empire for awhile; more than 100 years

    While I agree with you, I can't help but think that your name indicates a slight bias.

    Prague is already a fantastic city site. Multiple foods and minerals within its fat cross.

    True, but a. I've never seen Germany build it, and b. even if it is built, it's a bit weakened by Berlin and Budapest, and if in 3000 BC starts, may be weakened by any city Greece builds more northern than normal.

    I've seen Prague built by Germany once. Nothing special. I mean, rather useless.

    Can tell the same about Vienna, if this is the argument, or Aachen.

    Or any secondary capital of any empire. Why not ask the Spanish to start with either Toledo or Cordoba or the Russians to start with St. Petersburg? 100 years is quite a short while historically.

    Are there any mods that only contain map changes?

    The WASP Corporation overhaul looks interesting but I don't want to mix up my map changes and my Corporation changes.

    For most purposes, you could simply download the WASP mod and copy its PublicMaps folder into your regular RFC folder. This doesn't affect things like changed spawn locations etc., of course.

    I've never seen them build Hiroshima because they always build Kyoto on the spot but I've seen a lots of Nagasakis.

    I think we should put some sea foods (maybe fish or clam) in the Philippines they have a lots of Marine Life there. And IMO Korea has too much food.

    I think California's fine, but the placement of Sacramento on the naming map is horrible. Sacramento is definitely not on a hill! At least it doesn't seem like it.

    You're right. The city has an elevation of 25 ft/8 m above sea level.

    Caralis, for the love of god, is just an air in space. I think it should be at least an independent city around 1000BC, it's so sad that Carthage and Rome made it a land of culture dump.
    Ürumqi is just impossible to settle, no oasis, no river, crappy bonuses, nothing at all, I think it should have at least an oasis for it to be settle able.

    Caralis was not all that important.

    I never heard about Ürümqi before, but seeing that it is a Silk Road city, I agree that all of those can't rise to their historical importance in RFC, because of how the trade system works. There are other cities which were far more important, though.
