    JFD, minoa was well balanced before. There was no need to remove the settler.

    I've just played the scenario and it's amazing. You didn't only update the scenario to fit with the expansions features but you also improved it. Very good work !

    Seeing this level of skill, I dream of seeing you making a deluxe version of one of the best scenario of Civ V whose only default is that it needs an update : Into the Renaissance.

    I don't know what's happening, but I seem to have the religion icons in the scenario all messed up - for example Chaldeanism has an icon of a Native American religion, an Ashurism uses the Akatt-u symbol. It seems as if the scenario picked wrong icons from Tomatekh's Historical Religion atlas. I'm running the scenario with Community Patch, Info Addict, Cultural Diversity, Events and Decisions and a handful of gameplay tweaks, but I don't suspect those would interefere so much with the scenario itself.

    Dunno how that happened; all the indexes were off by one. Uploading a fix now (also fixed the only incompatibility between the scenario and Piety, so the two seem to work ok).

    Are you planning on updating anymore scenarios? Because I believe that some scenarios like Paradise Found, Scramble for Africa, & Into the Renaissance could use some work.

    I would just add/replace some of the civilizations; replace Belgium with your Belgium, the Boers with CL Boers, England with your Victorian Britain, Egypt/Rome with modern counterparts (you wouldn't know how much I hate seeing Octavian & Ramesses in the 19th century), as well as adding in some civs like Kongo & SPAIN (I know they didn't do much in the SoA, but I can't stand Firaxis wasting all of the Iberian Peninsula like that!).

    Also, for some reason I don't trust that face…

    Yeah, it could work; I can see adding Kongo and Spain (I didn't even realize Spain was absent, but come to think of it...) as valid, and VE I could work for Italy. Not sure who I could use for Egypt, but I'm sure there's sometime. I'll give it some thought.

    Omani leaderscreen could work as Muhammad Ali of Egypt. Spain had a protectorate in Morocco and had Western Sahara, so their inclusion is justified too - not to mention a possible nice naval base on the Canary Islands.

    But other than swapping civs and leaderheads and including a couple new ones, I think the scenario doesn't need much work - it is very nice by itself. It has unique policy trees, units and rules; it was one of the more enjoyable ones "out of the box".

    I highly agree; I really do enjoy Scramble for Africa. However, I still believe it could use some improvement; again, some new civs, some new leader heads *cough*no more Augustus Caesar*cough*, & potentially the addition of religion (I know it didn't have as much of a role that late in history, but it would still be interesting IMO). I'd be more than willing to give ideas. :)

    Why not? What does that emoji mean? Sarcasm? Is anyone else going to do it? Somewhere in CivFanatics there is a post with ideas for it, and personally I think it would do justice to that Scenario.

    Perhaps you could add an imperative for the African civs to maintain their own religion, whilst the Europeans earn points for spreading their religion throughout the continent. it might be overcomplicating the scenario somewhat but it would be interesting if the non-Europeans had a defensive bonus whilst following their own religion - to symbolise how the idea of religion inspired resistance and rebellion against the colonisers. The flip side of this being, reduced effectiveness when fighting the empires if following their religion.

    Of course, it's possible that this would make Ethiopia even stronger in the scenario, given their tendency to turtle, and their UA. The thought of these updated scenarios is interesting though.

    I was trying to update the art for SFA the other day, but I can't get it to work. I made a thread about it here.

    Sorry for the newb question but how do I install this?

    Edit: Nevermind, I just realized I had to unpack the download first.

    YESPLEASEYESPLEASEYESPLEASE! It's the best scenario in the game by far, so pleeeaaassee! :D

    Welp, Age of Imperialism is going to release a huge number of Scramble for Africa-related civs in the future... lessee: The Dervish State, Menelik II's Ethiopia, Colonial France, Colonial Italy, African Colonial Spain, Colonial Germany/German Africa, Cecil Rhodes, Liberia, African Colonial Portugal, Madagascar and (possibly) modern Egypt, Cetshwayo's Zululand and late Ottoman Empire. Maybe even a modern Morocco. I'd say that's a fair amount of things to add! :p

    Also there are the Boers, and you said you were interested in king Leopold II, so... that's also something.

    I did not know you were doing Cethswayo. How are handling Impi?

    The Impi name is given to Cetshwayo, and Shaka's UU is renamed to Ibutho. This is because the regiment that is normally called Impi is actually called Ibutho, while Impi is a more general term that refers to a group of armed Zulu warriors.

    EDIT: But, ah, if you want to discuss this further, you should post in my thread instead. [offtopic]

    WotAWD updated to v4:

    • New Civilization: LiTE's Akkad.
    • Assyrian Heavy Spearman replaced with Royal Library. It's XP-giving effects shifted to the building directly.
    • Can no longer access regular Single-Player mode with this mod active

    There most likely won't be a Steam upload for this update - 90mb is just too difficult to upload, apparently.
