    As I have promised, here comes the backgrounds used in my leaderheads. Most of them were used in my last supermod http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=433098 .

    In these 6 files, you’ll gonna find 286 :D ready to be used backgrounds + extra files to create new ones. There are 2d files, photos, 3d files and files edited by myself that mix 2d and 3d elements (example: a 2d building with a 3d sky).

    The files size are 400x480 pixels.

    The themes are generic mountains, beach, forests, snow, urban scenarios, medieval castles, mosques, East Asian buildings, harbors, etc. There are also specific elements to countries such as Albania, Austria, Brazil, Cambodia, Germany, Israel and Lebanon.

    Remember: To create my leaderheads scenarios, I combine a 2d image as the background with 3d Poser elements. I can give some tips to how to do that late. Beside the better effect, this process helps to hide the 2d background fails.

    The files are:
    - Backgrounds 06: http://www.atomicgamer.com/file.php?id=94459
    - Backgrounds 07, from the Feb 07th 2014 TGHM Expansion Pack: http://www.atomicgamer.com/file.php?id=106639

    If you look at the Persian palace, and scroll up and down, it moves.

    I`ve upgraded the post #1 with new 314 backgrounds used in the expansion pack of The Golden Hordes Mod. The file is available to download right now. You are gonna find forests, beachs, mountains, colonial sites, castles, palaces, religious buildings, big cities views, local constructions for many countries, etc. Check some of these files here.

    The colonial city of Potosi in Bolivia.


    A generic castle in Europe.


    View of Panama City. Fits for a generic big city as well.


    The Andes in Patagonia.
