No sign or any trace of Sukhothai or Ayutthaya, come on.
It’s like WWI without France

Well, well, well…
the people and their history…

Did you know, Gadjah Mada unique unit from Civ V : Brave New World using 19th Buleleng’s kris soldier photograph? And they still use outdated Muhammad Yani’s interpretation of Gadjah Mada’s face? and even still using N. J. Krom classic book for Majapahit Empire map of influence?

Actually, I don’t quite care about historical accuracy, because in this era, it’s hard to do that. Even Civ Games still use western-costumed unit for non-western culture civilization.

And for the guys who hate about the wrong history, actually i think the history is almost 100% accurate; “Malay” is not what are you thinking. Malay ( we call it Melayu ), was a seperated island that locate between India and Chineese that which has been broken to 3 countries;(Malaysians, Indonesian, and Brunei).

There are some problems with history and architecture. Anyway, Good expansion.


so many people here arguing about the most pointless things. Chill out.

Can I just say that campaign has been quite different and difficult, which is pretty amazing to say the least?

Also has anyone beaten the campaign yet, its pretty hard stuff.
