    Sumer (returning veteran)
    Hittites (returning veteran)
    Khazaria or the Timurids (Silk Road civ)
    Kongo (central Africa representative)
    Khmer (returning veteran)
    Vietnam (SE Asia representative)
    Gran Colombia (South America representative)
    Mapuche (South American Native representative)
    Yugoslavia (Eastern European representative)

    Basically a nice geographical spread while bringing back most of the veteran civs. HRE should sit out until other all-encompassing civs get similar splits (Chinese dynasties, etc). Mali shared too many cities with Songhai. And I feel another South American native group is more important for a good geographical spread than the return of the Sioux.

    But he might be talking aibout modern Vietnam, which makes sense. Namely, you could also say that Venice was covered by the Roman Empire, and Shoshone/Iroqouis by the Americans.

    That's not even close to true? Pretty sure the Sukhothai Kingdom never controlled Vietnam. The Chinese controlled the area for most of history, though that ended in the 10th century AD. I'm sure the members here who know more about East Asian history would be able to go into more detail.

    So... many... choices...:mad:

    If I had to pick, it would probably involve a ton of dark horses, such as Haiti, Scotland and Croatia. Put Canada in there as well, and possibly the Pueblo, if the reason was just the language, as I'm sure there has to be another one they could use. Hungary as well, to give Eastern Europe a bit more flavour, and probably the Aborigines as well. Chuck in the Hebrews and the Hittites as well, and that would be a fairly good combination.

    Other civs that I'd be willing to have in my game: A lot.

    Why Haiti, or Aborigines?

    I knew someone would ask about Haiti. It was mainly because they were the second American nation (apparently) to declare independence, and furthermore, the first ruled by people who were previously slaves. That alone makes it a good enough civ. I picked the Aboriginals because they are quite a good candidate, who could have a strong emphasis on religion. Besides, it would be nice getting another Oceanic civ anyway.

    I'd want the Inuits first, just to have a civ that can make use of lamd that would otherwise be quite suboptimal. The ability to cross ice and get extra food from snow, ice, and snow/ice-adjacent fish or whale tiles would be fantastic.

    It's actually surprising they haven't done Switzerland. Probably everyone in Europe could name the Swiss Guard without knowing their own countries "special unit". UI: Bunkers in mountain tiles increasing nearby tiles and cities defense. UA: Something about diplomacy and/or better relationships with other civs/cs. May also get the 2nd partly negative UA in the game (after India)... something about war weariness like unhappiness if they declared war on someone else.

    Perfectly fine (not polished) CiV thought up in 30 seconds. There's potential for Switzerland.

    Vlad the Impaler's civ. Just because I bet he'd make for a cool leaderhead/character.

    HRE, but with Austria already in.. Dunno how it would work. Maybe Switzerland instead.


    The rest I don't care much about (especially since I really don't believe in another expansion), but I don't want some nonsense like Aborigens. Vietnam, Kongo would be okay.

    Sure are a lot of no-names getting thrown around here. Would like to see some of these picks defended.

    Also Brennan listed Germany's road to France Belgium twice. :lol:

    Definitely the Haida. Also, the Chachapoyas or the Chan Chan are a much better south american civ choice than the Mapuche in my opinion.

    I would like to see Israel too, but highly doubt it would ever make it in due to political sensitivities.

    to anyone who said Aborigine,, +1. You know australia, on TSL maps we only got a couple of CS, but maybe adding Aborigines might fill out the Pacific Region. The problem would be the leader. who would you suggest???
    Israel would be nice option too, but Middle East is already overcrowded with assyrians, babylonians, ottomans, persians, arabs. etc.
    Another i want to see is another SEA civ, maybe Vietnam. But adding them might will make the Malay Peninsula overcrowded, Second choice for SEA civ?,Philippines would be cool :D, Katipuneros and Moro-Warriors.And maybe another American Civ, Argentina maybe?? on my TSL games, the southern part of South america is always empty just a bunch of Marauding barbarians. IMO adding another European Civ might not be good, I ain't saying that they don't deserve the spot but its just that. Europe is already overcrowded. Give chance to Asians and Americans or Africans. Its not cool to see Napoleon/Isabela/Maria Theresa/Cassimir/Bismark/William to pop Orleans/Barcelona/2nd Austrian City:D/Lods?/Hamburg?/2nd Dutch city. In some parts of Asia or Africa, then in the end just to be a prey to civ who got close city. Just sayin..
