    The tech system sounds like Victoria. Or did I miss something?
    Very few of us realise with conviction the intensely unusual, unstable, complicated, unreliable, temporary nature of the economic organisation by which Western Europe has lived for the last half century. We assume some of the most peculiar and temporary of our late advantages as natural, permanent, and to be depended on, and we lay our plans accordingly. On this sandy and false foundation we scheme for social improvement and dress our political platforms, pursue our animosities and particular ambitions, and feel ourselves with enough margin in hand to foster, not assuage, civil conflict in the European family. Moved by insane delusion and reckless self-regard, the German people overturned the foundations on which we all lived and built.

    This game looks so cool. What I like in a game that you start out small and work you way to greatness so the rags to riches kind of thing(a trait most likely inherited from R:TW), but who owns the land to the north?. The units look awesome!!! give the artist my compliment. Greeks have their own units and it looks like the turks too!!

    On guessing the alert icons:
    1st: new building is available
    2nd: ???
    3rd: military access to other countries
    4th: landlocked nation, 1 province nation???
    5th: You may now appoint a new member of the court

    Research definitely sounds interesting. But if the rate of research is dependent on the ministers you appoint, what ensures that more prosperous factions research technology more quickly than poor factions? Are you able to hire better characters, or have a larger pool of them to work from, or what?

    Possibly. At different levels of zoom present so far, the angle changes.

    It could still follow a pre-defined curve. When you zoom in EU3, the camera changes both distance and angle. Rotating a world map is a pretty pointless feature IMHO as 99.999% of people expect the world map to have north on top.

    It looks nice, thanks everyone.
    Could we please have some consistency in the alphabet used? ie Ianvari(us) with AVC or January with AUC.

    Have to agree. We all know Europe and rest of the World with the Arctic as North and Antarctica as south. And please keep it that way, no matter what the Romans believed...

    Having a rotating map would be popular in Conan the B's eyes.

    As he once said 'I would like to see a rotating map because when you "... crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women" you should look down on them.'

    Imo, Greece seems lacking some more provinces, being one of the most divided and important parts of the early ages of the game.

    Yeah, comagoosie... We Turks were in Asia at this point. Pretty deep in Asia.

    But still, I see what you mean. The Thracians appear to have their own unit--they would be Thracians, right?--and that is awesome. Oh, I can't wait to see the Carthaginians...
