I LOVE this world map I DLed... when you start, you start in the historically accurate era of its time (i.e. Spanish spawn in the Spanish Peninsula, Japan in the Japanese Island etc.) Well, I have been playing as Zulu(Spawned in South Africa, I own all of South Africa and I am moving into the Jungles of Africa) and I noticed, there is only 3 Iron in ALL of Africa, Carthage owns 1, Egypt owns the other, and there is one more which I already built a city JUST for it (Its WAY far away from my country, its in North East part of Africa) so, I decided I don't eally want to play as Zulu any more.... In your opinion, who would be the most interesting to play as? Im not saying the HARDEST to play as, I mean like... with Japan it would be easy to start out, since you have the island to yourself, but then, its going to be hard to migrate your people especially with Korea and China occupying Asia. (Note: I'm playing a kind of "realistic" game here, whereas if I am Zulu, I wont be settling cities in Indonesia, or if I am Russia, I won't be settling in South America etc.) Right now I am thinking of playing as England or Spain. Because, I would first settle my island/peninsula then, I could "realistically" settle almost.. everywhere. As England, well by god, I could settle almost anywhere I like, or as Spain I could settle quite a bit aswell. What is your opinion? Also, when helping me pick a Civ, also think of the UU... because, if its a VERY early UU, I.E. Zulu's Impi, then it is really quite useless because I don't go to war so early.
