i won`t mention anything about the cultural relations between the western civilisation and the roman-greeco civ.
philosophy, arts, architecture ... its obvious to all of us.
but - i want to point your attention to the fact, that there are 1000s of roman constructuctions existing to the present day and some of them even working.
aquaducts supplying fresh water, streets, nearly as good as german autobahnen, bridges, that work perfectly (until blown away like in mostar) etc.
all these building were constructed by legionaries
this fact should have been considered - either by making the romans industrious or by giving the romans legions the capability to build roads ( at industrious worker speed), to chopp wood, to build bridges (if that wasn`t civ3), to build forts and outposts.
a legion, that is stationed in a city should provide one shield per turn, when an aquaduct or colloseum is beeing constructed. (for game balance, the maximum help is one shield, no matter how manny legions you have stationed there).
