    1. The civilopedia might be too long if more is added.. be careful

    2. I think the city list might be a little off. I can't imagine that Montreal, Winniped, and Edmonton would be below some of the cities listed. It looks like a foreigner looked at a map and picked all the big dots on the map in random order (no offense).. maybe a Canadian native could look it over to make a better list. And it really should be no longer than 24 cities or so.

    3. The backgrounds look kind of shiny.. maybe you could do that one effect in photoshop for the modern backgroudn that makes it wavy like a flying flag. And the books look really shiny too. Maybe you could us an actual photograph?


    my 2 cents.

    Trust me, the more city names the better. Otherwise the Computer will start making citys like New Toronto etc...I think Civarmys doing one hell of a job.

    If you said the citys could be in a better order....thats a possibility.

    thanx SOG for adding the french in, trust me it makes a difference... it wouldn't be right to treat canadian history just from an english speaking perspective

    all the cities in the list are important regionally, if you want to go by population then they would start differently, ie. toronto, montreal, vancouver etc... i can take a look at them.. being a canadian i'm quite satisfied with the cities mentioned... perhaps the order could be adjusted as suggested.. i can take a look at them soon if no one else orders them

    Lets see...Ancient: Maybe make him look like a Viking....They were the first Europeans to discover Canada after all.

    oh i was your list was good... perhaps you can look at the one i just posted from statistics canada and add any large cities you missed... like i said population isn't the only factor.. you have to take into consideration regional importance for a country the size of canada... the canada statistics list is just there for your reference... if you want ill take a look at your list and adjust it..

    hold on a sec and ill do it...

    Its not that I thoguht the city list wasn't good, I just thought the city order could be rearranged. The latest city list is very good. Just make Ottowa the capital and capitalize the names and you're set.

    Yes, the civilopedia and city list are really good :goodjob: , I love them. For the middle age I had the same idea, maybe a castle in background, they could be a aristocratical room, using clothes of a poet, maybe.
    For the ancient one I desagree, in all the eras tha leader is cult, if he dreesed Roman/Greek clothes I think it is a better idea ;) a good classical run could be a good scenario, maybe a temple.

    Thanks again guys, you ameasing!

    too cool... thanx much for this LH dude :)

    anyways... this is what i,ve been using for my civ text and city list...

    Civpedia
    Code:
    #RACE_CANADA
    ^
    ^The Canadians are $LINK<industrious and scientific=GCON_Strengths>. They start the game with $LINK<Alphbet=TECH_Alphabet> and $LINK<Masonry=TECH_Masonry>.
    ^
    ^The first settlers on Canadian soil are believed to be peoples of Asiatic decent who migrated via the Aleutian land bridge to the continent between 12 and 30 thousand years ago. By 10,000 B.C., several tribes were spread across almost 4,000,000 square miles. An elaborate social system, with economic and military networks would arise by 500 B.C.
    ^The first European visitors were the Norsemen at the turn of the first millennium, setting camp in modern-day Newfoundland and trading with local native tribes. Canada was not permanently settled until the arrival of the French in the early 16th century. Jacques Cartier's misunderstanding of the native word [kanata], meaning [village] or [settlement], gave rise to the name 'Canada' for the land as a whole. A series of treaties shifted control of the region from the English to the French in 1679, back to England in 1713, to France again in 1748, and finally under British control once more in 1763.
    ^England's Constitutional Act of 1791 saw the province of Quebec divided into Upper and Lower Canada. After the American Revolution many United Empire Loyalists left the United States and emigrated to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec. The division into Upper and Lower Canada gave the Loyalists who settled west of the Ottawa River the chance to organize and develop along their own lines.
    ^ Lord Durham published a report in 1840 that called for the union of the two territories into one. In 1841, the Act of Union created the territory which was given Cartier's term 'Canada'. The treaty of 1842 settled the boundary between the United States and the British territories in the east; and by the treaty of 1846 the 49th parallel was agreed upon as the boundary from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific. In the east, in 1840, Upper and Lower Canada were reunited as the province of Canada.
    
    #DESC_RACE_CANADA
    ^
    ^In 1867 the British North America Act brought together the provinces of Canada, divided into Ontario and Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, to form the Dominion of Canada. In 1869, having acquired the rights from the Hudson's Bay Company, the Dominion transformed the former Rupert's Land and the area beyond the Rocky Mountains into the North West Territories. In 1870, the old Red River settlement joined the Dominion as the province of Manitoba. In 1871 British Columbia joined the union. In 1873 Prince Edward Island joined Confederation.
    ^World War I saw the coming of age of Canada as a nation and the disillusionment of a generation concerning Empire and causes. WWI was the most costly conflict that Canada was ever involved with and was mainly fought to support the political aims and ambitions of the British Empire, although Canada's role earned it a seat in the League of Nations. Later, the country's military role in global affairs would be developed through peacekeeping.
    ^The role of the United Nations supplying forces to keep the peace was first suggested by Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, when he was serving at the UN as Canada's representative. This idea has become one of the central fixtures in UN activities throughout the world. Pearson was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for the inspiration and Canada has become the most important and respected player in peacekeeping duties throughout the world.
    ^As an affluent, high-tech industrial society, Canada today closely resembles the US in its market-oriented economicsystem, pattern of production, and high living standards. Since World War II, the impressive growth of the manufacturing, mining, and service sectors has transformed the nation from a largely rural economy into one primarily industrial and urban. With its great natural resources, skilled labour force, and modern capital plant Canada enjoys solid economic standing as a member of the global "Group of 7", along with the United States, Japan, Germany, Italy,Great Britain and France.

    I think Stainz is better than mine. Only thing I'd add is what special units the Canadians get(Mountie, Afro Arrow etc.)
