Hi =)

do you guys know this site : http://orbis.stanford.edu/ ?

it basically reconstructs the ancient Roman road network, with more than 500 cities, nodes, trade and goods prices... It's a huge database, and maybe could it come to some help to you ?

That's really cool! It won't be much use to use for development (we're letting the player build their own roads, and Rome didn't really have any of the established roads in Gaul during Caesar's time) but it sure it neat to play with.

That is pretty interesting, can't say I've seen its equal. Great find.
