Rise of Asia Scenario for Watkabaoi
Hello everyone. I had not posted like... in 5 years? But I've playing in SP or private MP games this classic .
The reason to post this thread is some months ago I began looking after Asia inside this mod (btw, THANKS Cool Toxic and ALL the others who made it, I always play using it now). Asia had been improved in it, but I though it still had some little matters where it could be even more complete. So I began reading country by country the history of the main Asian powers of this age 1337-Early 1800s (mainly wikipedia, don't hate me! ) And so, I began changing starting techs in a few cases according to the levels I read about (only China has a noticeable up in this), then added the historical events with all the backup after reading and re-reading, including dozens of flavour, then some options B (all of B were in the same style as in the whole game, nothing crazy), and of course began adding the leaders for the countries. Finally, some cities, known areas in Asia were changed, a couple graphics added, then checked for bugs, balances etc, then kept reading about Asian Minors and added events, then made sure in a few countries that they became 'playable' being not unfair by "plausible events", correctly separated in a different eventfile so that "purists" can play without them (like you can start as Chagatays and pick Tamerlan rebellion releasing Chagatay instead of the other way around, so you can have continuity in the game in the construction of the line. Also made possible being on the Ming side with an enormous set of Chinese civil war events, playing as Shere Khan himself of Delhi against Moghal invasion and much more...).
In the end... hundreds of historical leaders (none plausible here), of options and hundreds of enormous historical omitted events were added. Graphics improved, populations and sights historicalized, some other changes implemented and... And by then, I realized I had done a whole expansion for this wonderful Mod I am so thankfull for.

So today, after feeling real shy about it, I understood it would be somewhat egoistic keeping it to myself and the version 2.01 is ready so here I uploaded. I did a big README which tells the main stuff about this scenario [Second Post]. By the way, it still has a fairly important to-do list for a few nations.
Thank you for reading this and for any comment/feedback/suggestion/idea/contribution/complaints (all of them are welcomed) regarding the scenario.
