    Hello there,

    In this update I've added Governor Schwarzenegger as one of the leaders for California. Since he's so popular with state employees at this moment :) ;) :lol:, I thank Ekmek for making him. I've also added some Style units & some Unique Units. Also I've added "half" support for French / German / Italian / Spanish versions of the game. Now when you load this mod on said language, you will see names & civilopedias in english instead of just being blank. On a funny addition, I gave Arnold the "Terminator 2" theme song for his diplomacy.

    Nice work here.

    I think the Watts rioters would make a good UU.

    Thanks, I added a new unit and a unique building. I'm not familiar with the Watts rioters...

    Can you post a link to see what they were all about?

    i think migrant farmers as a fast worker type would be much more appropriate. nothing has shaped the california economy more, except maybe some kind of silicon valley worker....


    the watts riots were a riot in the late 60's in the watts section of LA. similar to the rodney king riots. and to quote the underrated movie "menace 2 society" when the riots ended, the drugs began....

    How is your dds editing skills? I'm starting to learn my way around and was thinking that editing washington to have brown hair and a beard my make a good fremont leader head. I have no idea how to make Muir's wild beard but if you could stick one on roosevelt it might work. maybe reskinning ghandi would work for Brown :)

    Barracks was a cool idea consider how much defense industry is in Cali.

    When it comes to editing leader heads, all I know how to do so far is re-coloring...:blush:

    But yeah I would like to make the 3 leaders from California into 3D.

    I made my earl Warren head but used FDR but made it use Washington's background (for the US I replaced FDR with the Teddy roosevelt out there)

    I also changed the MCRD to a Presidio. Here's the game text if people want. I can upload my changed xml if anyone is interested...

    thanks Dwolf. I love this mod

    I found the red syndicate leader amazing similar to HIram Johnson, the progressive governor of California and Teddy Roosevelt's VP candidate. (minus the glasses)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiram_Johnson

    So I made a 3D leaderheader and made the files match like your patton one. Just put the hiram folder in the same spot where you put patton. I hope it works!

    http://forums.civfanatics.com/uploads/20358/HiramJohnson.zip


    now maybe reskinning Bernie's Marti (ghandi in a suit) could do a decent Jerry Brown....
