Every time I start Civ V with Germany and with earth as the terrain, it doesn't start me in central Europe where modern day Germany is. Can I correct this somehow? Civ 4 would automatically start the chosen civilization where it is (or would be) located on earth.

  • What it's doing is putting Germany where it first started BEFORE modern day map changes. – sayu Oct 15 '12 at 5:47
  • @Retrosaur Really! Where does it put "Germany"? I mean, it didn't even exist as a state until recently, and its best-fit predecessor state didn't exist until after the fall of Rome. – SevenSidedDie Nov 17 '12 at 5:14

Currently there is no way in the base game to place your civ in it's actual geographical location. However, if you are willing to use them, there is a mod in the steam workshop called "Yet (not) Another Earth Maps Pack" by Gedemon that has true starting location as well as a few other features.
