This scenario is quite good as cities actually fall at the beginning, it also outlaws trade routes so you can't trade with powers you are at war with or become excessively rich; it doesn't have spies meaning secrets can't be stolen giving each power their historic weapons and consequent tactical advantages, this also means cities must be taken by force and can not be bribed. Engineers cost three times as much which means less stupid cities are built by the computer AI, jungle in the Amazon and Central Africa further supports this trend. Research is effectively impossible with research rates 2000 times normal, technology is given to appropriate powers at the historical time by the computer. Government switching and negotiation between enemies isn't allowed either. Also has custom sound files and graphics.
