There is a bug I want to discuss. Even when I play on a random map and I don't choose this scenario (but I have it on in mods tab) the cities still can't be founded on the tiles you excluded. The AI never moves the first settler so half of the AI controlled civilizations never get to found their first city

@Cream You have to enable the scenario tick boxes in order to have accurate city names on map.

Cities arent named based on their location in a normal game for me, which is a shame because I really dislike the options the scenarios offer.

@btfuruta i had a similar issue with the author's Europe map. it went away after I reloaded the save and doesn't do anything, so I don't think you need to worry about it

Each unit I get always has the option to upgrade or whatever. Usually 50% bonus against cities? But whenever I click on the upgrade button, it just gives me the city manager view, so I can't upgrade them. Am I missing something? It's not game breaking, just annoying.

in the alternate scenario, France, Germany, Holland, Greece, and Arabia all start in the wrong place

Okay so this does not come up as an option to load. I have checked everything. I have the DLC content, no other mods, tried the mod section, tried the normal map, tried scenarios, but just does not come up in the map options anywhere.
