Suez Canal

Adds navigable Suez canal to the game. It looks like standard river-river portage, but you don't need to be Norse to sail it (only Norse can navigate major rivers, but no such restrictions on portages).

In spite of common skepticism, canals connecting Red Sea and Nile (which then goes into Mediterranean Sea) existed in antiquity, only closed in 767, and Venice considered rebuilding it in 1400s, so it's not outside realm of possibility that one might exist in CK2 timeframe. At least it's much more likely than a bridge connecting Ireland with Wales.

Check Wikipedia for historical context:

More importantly - adding Suez Canal makes India part of the actual game, not just some separate minigame with no effect on the rest of the world, other than making harming performance.

Mod changes checksum, obviously. Should be compatible with most mods that don't change the map.

ross.samuel.melton: I think so, but haven't tried it on a recent patch.

Disabling it mid-campaign could mess up merchant republics (giving them disconnected trade posts) but I don't know how serious this would be. Enabling it mid-campaign should work fine.

is it compatible with save games that did't have it before

Perfect! I just came back from a hiatus and wanted to try raiding india for the first time only to realize there was no way to get there on a Norse ship. Thanks!

Great mod. Do you mind if I combine your mods with others so I and others have access to popular mods that are compatible with the community patch mod?
