EDIT: I meant for it to be, like, topic discussion, almost.

Now, in all seriousness:

Besides being my home nation, the Americans look (haven't yet played the mod) the best.
They have a whole slew of interesting, and unique, economic units. They seem to really convey a "frontier" type feeling.

Wait a sec you don't have NE? You can't choose your favorite until you play the mod. However America isn't a very powerful civ. Not saying its not, but it's not the greatest civ. One good strategy is the great revolution. It keeps your old cards so you can get a settler or frontiers men from shipments. America looks powerful but isn't really that great. If you want infantry use Prussia or Britain, cav Poland (powerful bonuses and cards, but in real life Poland had much stronger cav and the Winged Hussars (which need to be stronger!) had a saber that was said to be the most powerful in Europe), Prussia, or Russia. Artillery I so don't really know. (Poland needs to get stronger Husaria, I mean The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was a great power for god's sake!) But however this is one of my favorite mods.

I can choose the civ that looks best, though. Sad By the time I download it, there will be another topic and I can argue for my new favorite there.

AMERICANS
Pros
- Several resource gatherers
- Military villagers
- Marines and Mounted Riflemen
Cons
- Marines are somewhat weak

SWISS
Pros
- Few buildings
- Military villagers
- Strong melee
Cons
- Little ranged
- Little cavalry
- No Forts (to my knowledge)

SWEDES
Pros
- They're awesome.
- Torps
Cons
- Can't think of many.


That's just a few of them.

Laziness. I have a mother who frets a ridiculous amount about downloading and other computer stuff. I'm still looking for an answer to one of my questions.

And our computer's file compressor is acting weird. We can't locate it to use it.

Do you have vista, because then you can search the name of your file compressor in the start menu. Or you can go to your program files and look for its folder and the application should be in there. If you have a MAC I can't help you.

Russia has the strongest cavalry:
cossacks > Uhlans > Hussars
Ops > buildings/settlers
Dragoons = Horse Archers

Also the Prussian cav is very strong (although they should be famous for their infantry):
DHH > All heavy cavalry units+artillery; loose completly against mounted riflemen!
Uhlans > Hussars
[they have also cards for dragoons and polish hussars, so i'm looking forward to stronger hussars Devil )

looking forward to this but i've already some arguments and i fear i wont remember them! So here we go:
Switzerland has just access to one fort but because they can move their buildings they do not need them (no civ needs forts., except maybe Austria and France but in the end forts are very weak)! Swiss have also long-ranged crossbowmen and that's the only ranged-infantry you need! Their problem is (fast) ranged cavalry!
The best argument for the americans are their gatlings! Gatlings+Dragoons+Mounted riflemen > nearly everything!
Sweden has a weak eco and although they have strong units they will loose most games againt rushing-civs! And also most others! Just good at late-game-battles!
btw: only Prussia has really strong military villagers!

My mom is that way, but when she sees me post in NE, she thinks that's all I do in the whole day.

On a rush, but in a full fledged war it's quite hard to beat them, which is what I like, I have never liked rushing.

That's true as well, this mod has a quite good feature, almost all civs are balanced, none is way too OP and if it is OP then it has a drawback in it's use.
