  • There were some changes to the Indians in a later patch during the relase of African Kingdoms. I made a short followup video to this one here:

    As always, I go over the civilization's bonuses, but I go into a bit more detail on their unique units this time (Elephant Archer and Imperial Camel). Then I kind of ramble about the camel. I then grade their tech tree based on my own impressions playing the civ.

    There's some other miscellaneous topics, like gold collection rates compared to Aztecs, Spanish, and Turks after the Sultans tech, as well as some stuff about camels vs knights.

    You should have given ships an A+ rating for finally having land representation.

    Or you could've just said that camels are the ships of the desert. xD

    African Kingdoms: Camels are no longer classified as ships.

    It seems you overlooked another thing about Camels being ShipsColumbus went to the New World trying to find an alternate route to, you guessed it, India

    @Duarte the map in question was created in 1510 and USED the map of Columbus as a source. Barbary Corsairs from North Africa were known to raid as far north as Iceland BUT if they had gotten to the new world there would be people in Africa with Native American heritage, which there are not. The Turks never really ventured out of the Mediterranean, Black, Red and Persian Seas with a few exceptions. There are a few conspiracy theories that maybe the Romans found South America as they did colonise the Can...

    stupid expansion, elephant archers should have much higher damage coz they are attacking from a higher position... ugh

    Camels are called the "ships of the desert." That's why they're ships.

    To be honest his explanations are more convincing.

    Can you do a hall of fame video? For example, which civ is best at gaining gold, which has the best archers, etc.
