Nitrojay's Late Start Saved Games

Notice

Please be informed that a new version (195/145) of Rhye's and Fall of Civilization has been released as of March 29/30, 2007, and that these saved games were made for version 193/143. You may still play these saved games on 193/143, but it is recommended that you wait for newer versions of these saved games as every update made by Rhye has relevant bugfixes and balance tweaks involved.

Introduction

So, I figure that since Rhye isn't planning on releasing any new versions for a while, I would post manipulated saves for those of you who would rather not wait for the auto-turns AND want a world historically accurate to the one your chosen civ was born into…

(I can't find my vanilla civ4 CD for the life of me, so I'm only going to be able to play around with Warlords…)

It was discussed some time ago on another thread (for the life of me, I can't find it) that it would be nice to have historical starting situations for each civ… So, I spent the afternoon yesterday in the world builder, building a somewhat-accurate start for Greece. It wasn't as time consuming as I thought it would be, so I plan on doing all the later civ starts as historically accurate as possible… But I do have a job and a girlfriend that take up alot of my free time, so we'll see how it goes…

The information I am using to build the historically accurate worlds for the civs to be born into are taken from a variety of sources. I have a few Atlases from the library for the "extent of empires" in different time periods, as well as the estimated populations of major cities. I'm also using a spreadsheet version of Rhye's citynamemanager when placing new cities to make sure that there will be no conflict when an opposing civ captures a city. (I'd like the name changes to still occur.) Of course, wikipedia is my source for exact wonder founding dates/places, etc. I also have a variety of books laying around here that I've used to determine: buildings in each city, tech levels of the different civs, and military composition and strength. I'm trying to be as accurate as possible, but, if anyone decides to give these a shot and notice a major balance problem, please let me know.

As for the saves, I try not to add too much, I just tweak the regular start a little to make the other civs in the world represent themseleves as accurate as possible considering the time period. I didn't add any barbarian/independant cities or make things more complicated than they should be, I just move a few things around some. It should feel like a regular RFC start… -Just with the world the way it should be…

Here are the links to the starts I have modified so far as well as some others…: (Please feel free to post your own random starts or your alternate versions of history if you'd like in this thread, the more the better! ALSO, if you decide to start a game tomorrow as Mali or Aztec or Americans or whatever, please save the game when the autoturns finish and post it…! No one likes to wait to play Rhye's mod…)
