    I am me. You are not me. You are you. If I was you, I wouldn't be me.
    If you were me, I'd be sad.But I wouldn't then be me because you'd be me so you wouldn't be me because I wasn't me because you were me but you couldn't be because I'd be a different me. I'd rather be any kind of bird (apart from a goose) than be you because to be you I'd have to not be me which I couldn't do unless someone else was me but then they would be you aswell so there would still be no me. They would be you because I was you so to restore balance you would have to be me and them meaning all three of us would become one continously the same. That would be very bad.

    I thought it was going to be quite obvious, seeing as Venice was purple. I quickly secured map and trade with the Turks to build friendly relations, and allied Armenia to support me in any future conflict. Then I slowly went east with my Emperor taking over the cities in the north of Anatolia, ignoring those south. Then pushed west and secured Greece, before Venice declared war on me, where I beat them back after a few large battles, before taking Venice itself in a massive battle, causing them for sue for peace in a few turns. Having no interest in expanding further into Europe, I will accept. As for not taking Beograd, every time I scouted it it was being besieged by Hungary, but they haven't managed to capture it yet. Mongols vassalised Cumans and Khwarizmi, so they pretty much barred themselves in and stopped expanding as they don't like to venture through allied land. I think. Anyways, explains why Kievan Rus did their thingy. France did pretty good too.



    Here is the map 20 turns later

    Venice remained peaceful. Sicily declared war, I took out a few armies, they sued for peace and gave me Cagliari and their north African cities. Then they declared war again, and I marched into souther Italy. Sicilia itself is besieged by Milan. Armenia attacked a turkish navy I stood next to, dragging me into the conflict there. As for Antioch, due to the Emirate of Damascus being a vassal of Turkey they declared war, so I sent in a stack and took Antioch while their 4 stacks weren't in range. Next turn I peace'd em, meaning I got Antioch for minimal losses.

    What a mega oOf. I believe all of us just got administered the yeet on that one. Great map though! He's releasing the 3.0 version of the Total Vanilla Beyond mod quite soon, and I can't wait for it.

    Well it's been a long while since I've played Med2 so here we go folks, just like King Athelstan's previous map I tried out the Total Vanilla mod. I'll quote him for the start pos as it is more or less the same.

    Turn: 46
    VH/VH
    Treasury: 47297
    Jihad: Jerusalem (Taken by Egypt)
    Crusades: None

    Best of luck! Although it shouldn't be too hard

    Byzzies seem the most likely indeed, nice expansion. For the sake of diversity I'll go with Denmark.

    As it's been a long while since this has been going again, I will be posting the answer 36 - 48 hours from the original post.

    I think the original rule was 24 hours? I will need confirmation if this is ok, and if it isn't I will post the answer earlier.

    Byzantines definitely look tempting, but I'm in a cork mood. You are Portugal!

    As the majority of you guess, I was the Byzzies. The AI seemed super passive in this mod, I was the only one who started any meaningful wars that lasted longer than 1 turn. Also no one wanted an alliance with me besides Novgorod cause I was untrustworthy, must be all the executions going on or something

    Thanks for participating folks, and rep will be handed out

    p.s if someone could rep King Athelstan for me I would really appreciate it! If not I'll get to it eventually

    Nice map, it the difference in faction aggresiveness might be because of the different versions of the mod? Or you just rolled the dice for some very passive AI

    Two Byzantines in a row is fun, did you play especially aggressive or just expanded where you saw a good opportunity?

    I was playing on the latest version of the mod which is 3.0? In any case, I played super aggressive as the money situation wasn't the greatest and expansion is probably the fastest ways to bolster the economy on M2 from what I remember.

    Might try another campaign to see if the AI is still the same, or go back to SS6.4 if I still want to play in this time period

    Aye, quickest way of making large amounts of money is going from city to city and sacking. I played mine on 2. something, 3.0 hadn't realeased yet at that point

    Alright, an easy one to revive the thread:

    It's Americas vanilla, completely unmodified.

    Spoiler for Starting positions




    Spoiler for Map

    Spoiler for Map zoomed on Mexico


    Turn: 51
    Treasury: 1866
    Warpaths declared: zero

    For obvious reasons, there's no option for crusades or jihads.

    Factions:
    Beige: Apache
    Black: Chichimecs
    Yellow-black: Tarascans
    Light blue: Aztecs
    Orange: Tlaxcala
    Yellow-red: Spain
    Green: Mayas
    Blue in Florida: France
    Golden star in Honduras: English

    The last two are unplayable, so that leaves only seven candidates.
