im interested in how to upload a saved game file to share with people so that they can play real world based civilizations that do not contain modified files so that everyone can play them without having to moddify anything.
my questions right now
1.. is there anyone working on any non-modified historical scenario's?
2.. how do you upload a saved game file for play as a scenario?
these are the maps that i seen on here that i found to be the most interesting and theres 9 of them all are 210x210 tiles in size but mediteranean sea i was not sure on how big it was but i did download it and got it to work so mediteranean sea is not a giga map obviusly and i can use it on a basic scenario.
1.Africa...this is the best map for a all africa scenario but surprisingly seems to be completly balanced all thoughout civilizised history the country to rule to most of these was either france or england.
2.Japan and korea...this was the largest version i could find with korea and to have japan at this vastly large scale was a hugh bonus most built in city names for korea were placable except for Puch'on found between seoul and inchon but a larger 400x400 map of this same region would give korean all city names that come wth the game there map be other korean city names that are too close to others.
3.Middle east .(the one with a very large isreal and phonecia )
4.North America..this depicts a very realistic north america and thus shows a balanced game where canada ,USA or mexico could be quite formidable Nicaraugua and cuba would be minor powers. after canada gets self rule dominion status in 1867 english is not very powerful only controling small islands in caribean but new foundland is direct control also until ceded to canada in 1947.
5.Ontario-NY........this is a cool map but when would it be most balanced to play obviusly a american civilwar would be a good consideration becasue the americans could face off against a barbarian confedercy in virgina and canada could be english or canadian but a early scenario with the dutch as new netherlands is not very interesting becasue in real life they get conquered by english very early on in the mid 1600's however the east india company could give the dutch a nice bonus) native americans would be interesting because some tribe names like mohawk are located on this map as part of iroqouis confederacy.
6.south east asia...(indonesia is the focus here shows most except for western papua guinea called Irian jaya). thailand is very large small part of china and japan makes a entrance with taiwan after 1895 and ends with world war 2 depending on the time frame dutch ,japan or indonesia could be powerful)
7.Mediteranean sea...this map is kinda complicated becasue many civilizations have been here but if i was to use it id probably go with Turkey as a country becasue the ottoman empire at there hieght could be quite powerful holy roman empire would be germany austrian empire is barbarians and poland could be the poland-lithuania country. russia would be a big threat to the turks and id like it that way. persia would be a minor power.
8.north Atlantic......(this map showed the majority of the civilized world thoughout history and im wondering what time period would be the most fun for north atlantic)
9.United kingdom. if you have ever wondered what playing as the welsh or ireland on there native map this would be the one at some point in history the entire map is dominated by the english united kingdom till irish independence dont forget about france because there partly on the map
austrailia map was considered but i decided against it becasue newzealand is not a playable country and france's new caladonia was so small it would be no threat to a gigantic united australia but new zealand could be ruled by polynesia but like i said australia map is not considered. this map is just not very balanced at any point in civilized history except maybe right after sydney is founded in 1788 and up until the first english town in newzealand is founded but modern australian town names would be barbarian aboriginies which is kinda strange but still kinda playable.
