    What's the difference between Hisaar and Qasr?
    Wish I knew myself. AFAIK, there is no difference. But I could be wrong...

    Sometimes I see an apostrophe between double vowels (e.g. Ma'an, Dera'a, Ha'il). Is this necessary? Should I be consistent and have it either between all instances or none?
    DO NOT USE APOSTROPHES!
    Yes, the spelling is correct if you use an apostrophe. But Civ does not like apostrophes, and everytime i've used them in a scenario it causes bugs.

    Is a Koh less rocky and steep than a Jhebel?
    The other way around.

    Arab Regular Infantry (Urmoo?)
    If you call it Urmoo instead of Urdoo I will have to beat you with a trout.

    Ageyl
    Camelry
    Bedouins
    Feisal/Faysal (two different versions of the same emir)
    Ali
    Abdullah
    Auda
    There are other terms, but I forget most of them. If I run across them I will post em.

    If you want an excellently detailed analysis of the Arab Revolt (with pics and stuff), check out www.emulateme.com's entry for Saudi Arabia.

    Are there different terms for year-round watercourses and flood runoffs?
    Yes, but I forgot what the bloody hell they were.... *mumbles*

    Nice terrain specials. Might want to add in grape vines (used in Arabic food), pignolia nuts (in forest terrains) and maybe frankisensce(sp?) and myrrh. Just some ideas. I love my Arabic food.

      'Shokran' for the terms and link (I hope I didn't just call you a hagfish ).

      I'm hoping I'll have enough event space to put in a few that unleash Sa'ud's Ikhawan after the fall of Ha'il (soon to be renamed Saud & Hail).

      Still wondering who invented Baklava. (starting a Greco-Lebanese flamefest)

        Is Auda Abu-Tai a servant?!

          Is that the translation of Auda? If you're cynical and anti-British, then perhaps you could call him a servant of the British. He was a sheik of the 'Eastern Howeitat', described as a Robin Hood warrior who absolutely hated the Turks. It was he whom Lawrence convinced to lead Bedouins to capture Akaba.

          Anthony Quinn played him in the movie.

            I don't think it means servant. I think you're referring to slang.

            For more slang, visit this page:

            LITTLE CHILDREN DO NOT CLICK THAT LINK!!!! That includes you, Hodad.
            (Note, it has no porn, just dirty words.)

            Oh, and the Lebanese OBVIOUSLY invented Baklava.

                Testing, testing, and more testing. Fixed some playbalance problems around Gaza and in the Hejaz. Futzing around with GUE in Turk hands.

                Mercator and Fairline have posted a lot lately that's going to improve the gfx. May have to bug them some more. The Brits wore pith helmets, shorts, and puttees in Palestine.

                It's kinda fun trying to hold the Turks in Medina with a bunch of 0df Bedouins (handicapped spies). Can't stand up to full strength Turk units, but they can ambush them incessantly. Here's an example.

                    That screenshot's got me salivating too Boco. The terrain looks fantastic. Any chance I could steal some of it after this is released?

                      Try Red October while you're waiting. I stole half my tricks from him.

                      Fairline have I got a deal for you! . I'll email you with details.

                          Unfortunately there are only a few scenarios...
                          But check the Civfanatics Scenario Archive and the Cradle of Civilization.
