    I haven't tried, but I imagine if you add pics with the same dimensions with the same filenames (VFS=true), it'd work without any revisions necessary.

    (Go Niners!)

    Thanks for the response and I figured that would most likely be the case. Now to find out the filenames....;)

    Oh, and go 49ers!! Went to see them play Tampa Bay Buccaneers when on holiday in Florida.

    Hey Nutty!
    Thanks of course for the mod. :)
    I installed the "normal" G+K version and also have the problem of seeing a leaderhead at the first meet with a city state, but subsequently only see the defaults, while using CivUp and GEM, plus some other minor mods.
    Would it be safe to install the compatible version over the current one and then continue my current game? Or do you suggest to wait until I finished this one?

    Thanks for the suggestions (and keep 'em coming)!
    [see post #45 or post #1 for the list]

    EDIT: Note I've removed some that don't appear to have made it into the game.
    EDIT #2: The "extras" were 5 out of the 6 city states that are added for the new Scramble for Africa scenario (which I've added to the proposed scenario support section of post #3). I also removed them from the Wiki.

    Could possibly the Flags edition of the mod for BNW be finished first? As it might be easier for you to compile relevant flags instead of the leader portraits :)

    Just asking since that's the edition i prefer!

    I had come to the same conclusion. In fact, it's nearly done, though I'm a bit unhappy with the choices I had to make.

    For example, so that I don't conflict with Toft Flags using Iraq for Babylon and Iran for Perisa, I've moved Ur to Kuwait (to where it would have been had water levels been the same) and moved Ormus across the straight of Hormuz to U.A.E. Normally I would have used the flag of a smaller political subdivision, but I can't find any local flags for Iraq or Iran.

    And... Byblos? Not to discount the historical significance of Lebanon, do we need a third city state from a modern country of only 4000 square miles?


    Anyway... Keep the leader suggestions coming (especially if you want CSE compatibility)!

    The original request was to mesh with Toft Flags, so that's what I did, but I could try to find more appropriate matches as an alternative mod (e.g., the Standard of Ur, war side or peace side).

    As for Smaller Landmarks, I haven't tested it, but it should work fine with the new resources and improvements. Note that Leugi just posted a new farm, so I'll update Smaller Landmarks at some point to include that instead of Horem's art resources (while we wait for the fall patch for Firaxis to finally squash the farm crash bug).

    Ah that's nice :)
    If i just want to use the smaller landmarks and not the new farms, i presume it's safe to remove the "Art" folder, and edit the SmallerLandmarks.sql to only contain the below:

    Spoiler :
    -- R.E.D. - Smaller Landmarks
    -----------------------------

    -- SMALLER LANDMARKS:

    UPDATE 'ArtDefine_Landmarks' SET Scale = Scale * 0.75 WHERE
    (ResourceType LIKE 'ART_DEF_RESOURCE_%' OR ResourceType = 'ART_DEF_FEATURE_FALLOUT')
    AND NOT ImprovementType = 'ART_DEF_IMPROVEMENT_BARBARIAN_CAMP';


    Right? :)
    Enough offtopic, thanks!

    Oh really... So is there a way to keep the vanilla farms?

    In case you missed it, the flags version for BNW has been released!
    DOWNLOAD [or Subscribe on Steam]

    Not if you want smaller landmarks (until the fall patch comes out, that is).

    Hmm... Well, remember this was a continuation of mihaifx's project, and I was originally just updating it for Gods + Kings. I agree with you that using paintings doesn't quite mesh with the game's art design.

    If you're talking about adding in sunburst/starburst backgrounds, I could certainly do that, but it's a fair amount of work. Note that there's 55 city-states in BNW, and 11 more for backwards compatibility with vanilla and G+K. I could certainly try to run them through some filters to make them appear drawn, but if you're talking about tracing the leaders and recoloring them by hand like Firaxis did, that's quite an undertaking.

    The community hasn't thus far shown a whole lot of interest in helping me out with this project, but if an artist wanted to take that on, I'd welcome it.
