    Nice :) Am I too fast or are you, perhaps, not aware of the links directing to Wonders of the Ancient World Deluxe? I actually might play a scenario for once, lol

    Into the Renaissance Deluxe Scenario Map

    Starting positions and initial territories of all the 21 playable civilizations and 41 minor civilizations. Not portrayed are the Mongols, scheduled to invade from the east.

    Spoiler :

    Full-size: http://i.imgur.com/jh1zu2u.jpg

    Each civilization's initial borders are kept small, and close to the starting cities. Large gaps between each civilization are there to ensure dynamic cultural expansion , to encourage the settling of new cities, and to introduce an element of unpredactibility and randomness into an otherwise rigid setting. Each civilization will have ample room to colonise, and when this runs out - warfare will become the natural method of expansion.

    Some changes were made to the original scenario's map. Most notably, the British Isles were remodelled to resemble their real counterparts more than in vanilla ItR. Some other landscape changes were introduced, such as the prettification of the Mediterranean islands and the Italian peninsula, addition and modification of a few rivers, mostly in Central Europe, and the introduction of various Natural Wonders, which should further encourage exploration, colonisation and conquest.​

    Your comment looks somewhat... Empty? :p

    Spain is plenty full.

    That's how it was in the original scenario anyway.

    Looks great! :) Though it looks like Sweden and Denmark have little room to expand (like in the original scenario), would it be possible to expand the map a bit north, maybe 3-5 tiles?

    Oh, and shouldn't the Rhône flow past Avignon? :D

    They can go smash each other's skulls a bit earlier then. :p

    It should, but the mouth of the Rhône is a good settling spot for a playable faction, and the three tile minimum distance between cities is hard to overcome. :p

    Since there's no New World, how will Castille and Portugal be changed? I'm assuming Castille will have some kind of religious war focus.

    Don't get me wrong. I appreciate the hard(and probably very challenging work) work you did to update the scenario.
    But... There's waaayyyyyy too much free space in that map. I'm mainly talking about Spain's eastern coast and Africa(on that note, why does the map covers Timbuktu but not Norway?).... I expected that to be a no-settler scenario.
    Also, do you still get points from holy cities? Because the Ayyubids are terribly close to both Jerusalem and Mecca...

    1. As I said, I was hoping for a no-settler scenario.
    2. There's a difference between starting with a small territory and having (probably) unused space. I believe
    the ayyubids* nor the Hafsids won't go and settle in the middle of Africa, and correct if I'm wrong, they never actually controlled these areas.
    3. I suppose what I wanted to say is that the space could have been divided in a different way. Aragon and Norway should be there, simply because they had more influence on Europe at the time of the scenario.
    4. How come so many English cities disappear in 30 years? :p

    *last when I played with Saladin (and the time before that, and before that, and before that), I had no need in settling. I was surrounded by cities I could conquer. And especially with the UA he had.
