    My Tomainia mod will have Field Marshal C.G.E.Mannerism as a leader of Infidelia. How about that? There's a pic and a newsclip of him in Tomainia daily.

    Hey, I am making a new winter uniformed Sissi Finnish flavour unit, based on the shadow infantry unit by Piernik. Just wanted to announce in case if someone here is already making something of a kind so I can save the trouble - I just started to work with it.

    Any thoughts? Will have attack, run, death, default and victory animations - perhaps fidget where he smokes a cigarette or something. No skiing, that I can tell you. I will not send the whole flic yet, since only one attack direction is ready but I'll enclose a single pic of it.

    It will have civ specific color arm band and cockade (kokardi). Problem is that arm band is perhaps too small for lighter colors and you may not be able to tell difference with every civ. Stronger colors like German blue and Roman red will look ok.

    Hmmm... Finnish haven't really been religious for a long time, I'd say that the Finnish culture in general has changed incredibly much over the last 100 years. I'd say that if you want to make it look like a Finnish civilization in the 19th century (or before that), then it should be religious and militaristic (Finnish way of thinking was extremely pro-war until the 1918 civil war... if you don't believe me, just read the books and poems of our "national poets" like Runeberg).

    And if you want to make it look like a current-day Finnish culture, then one trait would prolly be commercial and the other would be either industrious or scientific.

    Hi, you can now download my mod from my homepages (see http://koti.mbnet.fi/kahoset/civ.htm). It is about 600 kb, but there are no leaderhead-flics in zip, because they take 8 Mb. If you want to test the mod, please copy and rename some other leaderhead files (eg CA_*.flc -> VA_*.flc).


    ---
    Why I choose those sciences? I wanted some from older times and some new.
    Religious: Finns have always respected rulers and God (not so much nowadays, in general, but in pre-50's). Example: Finland in 1932, mutiny of far right-wing Lapua movement (Lapuan liike) activated. The troops came together in Mäntsälä. This is known as Mutiny of Mäntsälä (Mäntsälän kapina). What did government and president Pehr Evind Svinhufvud, Ukko-Pekka? He spoke on radio and said: "Rebels in Mäntsälä! Please go home and calm down." And they obeyed.
    Scientific: Nokia :)

    it crashes if you play it with 1.29. Play it with older version and it won't.

    Ok, not just 'cos Nokia, let's recall eg Linus Torvarlds (linux), Jarkko Oikarinen (irc) and ... also big parts of spaceships (of ESA) are made in Finland.

    FinMaster, have you copied some leaderhead flics to Väinämöinen flics (eg art/flics/CA_*.flc -> art/flics/VA_*.flc).

    I have 1.29f. Happily, it works fine on my Civ. :D

    Well .. he did say to represent modern Finland, and that would certainly fit ... thats a long list of accomplishments for a tiny country to make in 15 years!!! I'd say they'd have to be fairly scientific to do so!
