Description
V1.2 UPDATE:
Due to a glitch with civ 5 or the world builder you would always start at Riften or the southern most start point (if Ritften was removed you would start as Falkreath and so on). I have fixed this by making a scenario that allows you to start where you wish, I also took the opportunity to name the leaders as the Jarls and the Civs as the Holds.

USE THE SIMPLE SET-UP SCREEN!
1. Select the map [ZX Skyrim].
2. Tick the scenario check-box.
3. Choose your leader form the list.
4. Click Start

Leaders translate as follows:
English - Solitude
Russia - Morthal
Arab - Dawnstar
India - Winterhold
Siam - Markarth
Egypt - Falkreath
Ottoman - Whiterun
Persia - Windhelm
Japan - The Rift

If you use advanced settings you will start randomly.

My [Zardoz Xerxes] Skyrim map is visually similar to Skyrim but also features tactical civilisation 5 game-play.

I used an elevation map of skyrim to place the mountains,they have hollow centres filled with hills, this is to present more usable areas for civilisations, but also to create enclosed, defensible areas. I also acquired another map, detailing all of the visible terrain, I used this to place the rivers, using sea instead for easy trade routes and unit traversal.

I have simulated paths and roads as plains on grassland and tundra on snow, this also helps to break up the grassland and creates some more useful terrain in the snowy areas. There are also a few areas in the north that are only assessable via deep water and some small rivers on mountains.

The resources are random but I am working on them now.

Here is a link to the map without a scenario.

If you find the file in the mods folder you can open it with 7zip and pull the map out to your mydocuments/my games/civ v/maps folder this will let you load the map like any normal map.
