    This bug is in regular BtS, Warlords, and vanilla Civ too. It is also in a bunch of mods, official and not.

    In CIV4ArtDefines_Misc.xml the definition of ART_UNITGROUP_COIN has a typo in the NIF entry. The file "Art/Units/Flag/Medallions.nif" does exist (it is in Assets0.fpk), but it is looking for the file "Art/Units/Flag/Mediallion.nif" which does not.

    My guess is that this is not actually used for anything since if it was it would have been fixed by now. But anyway...

    Existing definition:
    Code:
    		<MiscArtInfo>
    			<Type>ART_UNITGROUP_COIN</Type>
    			<Path>None</Path>
    			<fScale>1.0</fScale>
    			<NIF>Art/Units/Flag/Mediallion.nif</NIF>
    			<KFM>Art/Units/Flag/Medallions.kfm</KFM>
    		</MiscArtInfo>
    Corrected definition:
    Code:
    		<MiscArtInfo>
    			<Type>ART_UNITGROUP_COIN</Type>
    			<Path>None</Path>
    			<fScale>1.0</fScale>
    			<NIF>Art/Units/Flag/Medallions.nif</NIF>
    			<KFM>Art/Units/Flag/Medallions.kfm</KFM>
    		</MiscArtInfo>
    Since it doesn't appear to have any effect in the game, as far as I have noticed, the main reason to fix it is probably that if you fix it it will stop showing up when running CivCheck.
