What's up with the map uncovering Mali?
I traded maps with them.
ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer
The Han Dynasty 206 B.C. - 220 A.D.
If this is the territory to conquer, I think that it can be feasable by the 220AD... it's a while I don't play China so I don't remember the "timeline" in the game.
The Roman empire to full extent in historical time it's almost impossible (I'd love to see somebody doing it) but it's not the only one.
What about Alexander the Great in historical time (by 323 BC)?
You have to eliminate Babylon (if still alive), Persia and Egypt... and arrass India as well.
Can be tough in any case but impossible with historical timeline!
It's not impossible. You just have to be very very lucky. All my melee units got cover after a few turns (I love that event) and Egypt was conquered by barbarians who left the capital without any defense. Babylon was only defended by warriors, easy target. In 750 BC the only target left was Persia. When I defeated them it was 30 BC, but I could have done it some turns earlier because I couldn't declare war on them. I'll post a screenshot when it's done.
That's pretty far off 323 BCE...
It is possible to do the Ottoman empire, and I have managed the russian empire (not sure if it was the exact time as in real life, but it was close) I had wars against mongolia, china, japan, arabia and persia to get it
Persia is now defeated in 270 BC, only 3 (the three I couldn't declare war on Persia) turns after 330 BC.
Still, I haven't conquered India like Alexander did.
If you do not start to expand too early, Japan must be easy.
Impressive both the empires!
complimnts to both of you (and thank you for sharing)
As Rome I reconquered France, all British islands, Netherlands, Germany, Greece and the Balkans and keep the northwest of Africa. I conquered also some cities in central and south America with Conquistadores but I prefer to leave them free because they caused a lot of trouble to my stability and economy.
Now I am at 1550 and I am preparing to invade Spain and Portugal...
Here are my Empires: The Roman Empire (A bit late, but all historical territories are occupied) and the Byzantine Empire: A Roman game that I founded Constantinopolis as my capital.
Recall though that Alexander never conquered the whole of India, merely nibbled at parts of its border. Though you have a very good empire for such an early time period I think it would be better to try to include Northern Egypt (Alexandria very important ancient city) and Macedonia (Northern Greece), where Alexander was from.
That's the thing though, no one REALLY gets the whole Roman Empire, certainly not within the time period that IS impossible I'm willing to say. Most people just think of Rome as being the Mediterreanean and England, they don't realize it includes Asia Minor, the Balkans, Judea and Mesopotomia.
I remember trying to make the Portuguese empire several times, but failing miserably... There is just no way to colonize/conquer the east coast of Africa by 1510, while also colonizing Goa, Malacca/Singapura and Macau/Guangzhou.

Can anyone conquer the Mongolian Empire? Not by the the historical time line, but by the end of the game?
Didn't really aim for it, but got pretty close when doing the uhv some time ago.
Oh come on, if you don't add a time limit I regularly see the AI win that one.
