    Hi, folks!
    This is my second leaderhead and my first attempt to make a female native american leader. Usually i'm a Civ4:Col modder but the Leaderhead works with Civ4 as well.
    The leader is unhistorical and fictional. Use and name her as you like.

    Hope you like her.

    This looks very nice. If this is your second leaderhead, where is your first?

    Thanks guys, i' m glad you like her.

    Sure. My first Leaderhead was Orkeke, leader of the Tehuelche (South American Indians who inhabited the Patagonian plains). I have made him for the TAC-Modification (sadly only german).

    Okay, you've got me there. I realize sneaking away isn't a option. :D
    I like to upload my stuff here. But first i must figure out a good way to do this. Most of that i have made on demand for TAC. Random stuff like single units, citysets or LHs. Maybe i will release that in the Colonization-Download section and then make one thread here as well, linking to all these things. Only problem is, i haven't 30 posts yet and so all my uploads will end up in the moderation queue. No fun at all if you try to get structure in a thread.
    Any suggestions?

    Make 30 semi-random posts ASAP
    We can even make a new thread for that :)

    Awiakta is now in the Download Database. Download link


    Note: I totally messed up my first upload. I want to remove the pictures from the description and add the first one to the image showcase. Also i tried to edit the description but i have only a button to "submit file"?:confused: Nothing to save my changes.
    Help?:D

    Edit: I figured out how to add an image.

    Submit file is totally fine for editing
    Edit the way you want, remove the pics, and then submit "file"

    Yes, it seems like editing leads straight into the moderation queue again. :rolleyes: I'm sorry about that. It's kind of frustrating.

    One solution left: make those 30 posts ASAP ;)

    This may sound stupid but you are totally right. Unfortunately it's the only thing that makes sense. I already have contacted the moderation, they can't help.

    Great work. I'll add those to the LH DB. Yes, I'm not playing Civ IV anymore, but I still follow these threads and update the DB from time to time.
    Just a question, how long does it take to make one such LH? These works looks very time-consuming.

    Thanks.:)
    To answer your question, for this Lh i guess i needed about 50 hours. Nothing you will finish within a week. The gerneral shape is quite easy to make and don't need to many time. But the other things like shadering, texturing, adjust lightning and fixing animation issues need alot of time. It's a long way until all these things fits.
    There are still some minor issues with this Lh i'm not so happy about.

    So yes, it's very time-consuming.

    The quality is amazing, you can tell by the first look it had to be a long time to reach it.
    50 hours... hats off!
    I guess only Ekmek and maybe Capo worked that much on their LHs previously
    Still, I hope you will surprise us with some more awesome leaders like this ;)
