Something I hadn't seen before aquiring a world map by the egyptians- a whole continent very similar to North+south america, settled and developed totally by barbarians?? I mean with large cities, farms, roads.. How extremely cool by the devs! :)

Barbarians managed to capture one of my cities but I didn't see them conquering a whole continent yet :)

I think in earlier Civ-games (Civ 1 and perhaps 2) it was possible that a nation becomes a Barbarian nation once the capital has been lost.

A whole continent populated by barbarians? Not possible. Why not? Well, once they have farms, an infrastructure, cities, and so on... They aren't barabarians anymore! Heh, I'm such a smart-ass:naughty:.

But yes, that's a very good move by the developers, letting barbarians capture cities instead of only pillaging and razing them.

Barbarian just means "somebody who talks in a weird way" or "somebody who doesn't speak Greek". So it is possible :)

Yea you must be referring to a time when you played an earth game or a game with alot of islands because if barbarians have enough free land mass with no civilizations cities on their continent they will start building cities and then farms and roads although I have never seen them build railroads they aren't allowed to use civics and get negated many bonuses you get by being a civ like religion so they usually stay far behind in tech ladder but can become very difficult to fight if you do not get footholds in their continents before you reach industrial and modern ages
