City States Leaders mod support contribution thread


Mar 9, 2011
Orange County, California, U.S.A.
Now that City States Leaders II is due to be released, the daunting task of adding icons for modded city states presents itself.

The CS Mods art pack v1 beta 6 for CSL2 is now available.
But there's a lot of work still left to do, and I need your help!

Because it was so difficult collecting the art for the latest incarnation of CSL given that we were trying to be more Firaxis-like (see the previous contribution thread), I think I will relax the standards for mod support. For the moment, I'm using the simple portraits from the earlier CSL mod for many modded city states. However, ideally an icon should integrate a sunburst pattern in the background, where the background tint matches the city state's trait from the following key:
Red for militaristic :c5war:
Yellow for mercantile :c5gold:
Cyan for maritime :c5food:
Magenta for cultural :c5culture:
White for religious :c5faith:

One-off replacements from various New Civ mods (see post #10 [whatever my last post is] below)...

Fictional City States (Comedy Movies)
[Just released! v1 beta]

knightmare13 created an icon of Sacha Baron Cohen as Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen of Wadiya from the movie "The Dictator" (2012). I didn't want to add any new city states with CSL, but I am happy to provide support for mods that do.

Because it was such a trivial mod, I decided I would make it for knightmare13. I thought it needed a few more leaders of fictional places from comedy movies. So I came up with these [see links for pics]:

Spoiler Comedy Movies :
place leader source
Wadiya Sacha Baron Cohen as Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen "The Dictator" (2012)
Zamunda Eddie Murphy as Prince Akeem Joffer "Coming to America" (1988)
Florin City Chris Sarandon as Prince Humperdinck "The Princess Bride" (1987)
San Marcos Woody Allen as President Fielding Mellish "Bananas" (1971)
Parador Richard Dreyfuss (as Jack Noah) as President Alphonse Simms "Moon Over Parador" (1988)
Genovia Julie Andrews as Queen Dowager Clarisse Renaldi or Anne Hathaway as Princess Mia Thermopolis "The Princess Diaries" (2001)
Camelot ('Tis a silly place) Graham Chapman as King Arthur "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975)
The Lost Planet of Magrathea Bill Nighy as Slartibartfast "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (2005)

Proposed Additions:
place leader source
The Duchy of Grand Fenwick Peter Sellers as Prime Minister Tully Bascome "The Mouse That Roared" (1959)
Freedonia Groucho Marx as Rufus T. Firefly "Duck Soup" (1933)
Planet Spaceball Mel Brooks as President Skroob "Spaceballs" (1987)
Tomainia Charlie Chaplin as Dictator Adenoid Hynkel "The Great Dictator" (1940)
Waponi Woo Abe Vigoda as Chief Tobi "Joe Versus the Volcano" (1987)

Fictional City States (Fantasy)
[proposed mod]

Then fantasy places started appearing in my head, and I started coming up with a list of more potential city states...

So I propose a new mod of fictional city states.

I'm happy to take more ideas to add to the list, but my aim is primarily to recruit artists to submit their City State Leaders icons using this and their own ideas as inspiration.

See the end of post #5 for proposed scenario support.

and a better Sacha Baron Cohen as President Prime Minister General Admiral Haffaz Aladeen
Spoiler :
...knightmare13 created an icon of Sacha Baron Cohen as Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen of Wadiya from the movie "The Dictator" (2012). I didn't want to add any new city states with CSL, but I am happy to provide support for mods that do.

Because it was such a trivial mod, I decided I would make it for knightmare13. I thought it needed a few more leaders of fictional places from comedy movies. So I came up with these...
are you still interested in this mod? :)

This post is mostly intended as a bump to see if I can entice/remind any artists to help with CSL mod support for currently existing CS mods and new CS mods [e.g., Fantasy City States detailed in the first post], but I'm also going to describe the new framework going forward, for those that are interested.

I'll be posting some new betas in the other threads shortly.

FYI, using bc1's EUI mod as a base, I've been able to combine the different versions of City States Leaders/for G+K/for BNW, and am rebranding the new release City States Leaders II. This should make things easier for me as well as users of the mod.

* * *

The mod support will now be provided by an addon artpack (the modern flags version will similarly be a replacement artpack).

Right now 11 mods are supported (though there's some overlap, and 9 of them only need 1 or 2 city states).

"More City States" by jc and "YnAEMP City States" by Gedemon are the larger packs currently supported (though most of the leaders haven't been updated, and are simple portraits). I'd like to also add "City States Expansion" by Hiram, but that'll take quite some effort. Hopefully others can help.

The others are some one-offs that I have found for new civ mods that replace city states from the base game because it overlaps with their new civ. If you know of others, let me know. [See post #3 of the main thread]

Note that the "Saints Row -- Steelport City-State" mod by Vice Virtuoso included optional CSL art for the old BNW Flags version. Things have since changed on the backend, but I've made sure that it now works with both the mod support addon and the modern flags addon, whether or not the CSL support is activated.

The first pack of Fictional City States discussed above ("Fictional City States - Comedy Movies") will be [has been] released separately [v1 beta 5], and includes support for CSL2, if it is activated. Any city state modders are welcome to use that mod as a template to include their own art rather than waiting for me to release an updated mod support artpack.

EDIT: ...and, since I ran out of space in the first post, here's...

The following of my mods replaces City-States (other than the ones mentioned):

Lithuania - replaces Vilnius with Dorpat.

I thought there were more, but I think that's it for the moment. Let me know what you need - mod id, tag for the City-State, etc. - and I can get it for you.

I can contribute the icon I have for Seddon, for NZ. It's obviously not as good as work from JanBortua, Leugi or Sukritact, but it might do the job in the mean time.

Spoiler :

That's funny, I had just edited the post to mention Dorpat, and my difficulty finding an appropriate pic.

TPangolin contributed Henry Sewell for Wellington...
Spoiler :

I think I'm going to add yours as default and make his the alternate, only because your Seddon includes the torso, which better matches most of the other leaders.

EDIT: JFD, can you confirm the tags and the traits for your added CS's? I won't need mod id's.
Yup, they're just updated versions of the vanilla.


MINOR_CIV_VILNIUS - Dorpat - Mercantile
MINOR_CIV_YEREVAN - Tbilisi - Cultural
MINOR_CIV_ZURICH - Lubeck - Mercantile
MINOR_CIV_GENEVA - Thimphu - Religious
MINOR_CIV_BUDAPEST - Tripoli (I had forgotten about this one) - Militaristic
Yup, they're just updated versions of the vanilla.

...though that makes my job quite a bit harder...

EDIT: And I'm going to need those Mod ID's after all...
EDIT #2: Never mind, got 'em.
EDIT #3: I've got a working solution!
FWIW, I was retouching the new icon for the Saints Row Steelport city state, and I thought it seemed lonely, being the only one from videogame land, so I started to throw together some for Video Game City States:
Spoiler :

Princess Peach of the Mushroom Kingdom
("Mario" series)

Warchief Garrosh Hellscream of Orgrimmar
("World of Warcraft")

King Varian Wrynn of Stormwind
("World of Warcraft")

Princess Zelda of Hyrule
("Legend of Zelda" series)

Mr. Carpainter of Happy Happy Village
("Earthbound"/"Mother 2")​
Aaand here we go for Taipei:

Wow, trying to find all the replacement CS's for New Civs has taken me down quite a rabbit hole... there's a lot more than I thought.

In the meantime, I've been pumping out icons; I've got the process down, and I'm slowly getting better at it; I'm not always adhering to the standards, but I think it's better to get something in place for the moment.

For those interested, here's the latest batch:
Spoiler :

San Juan


They're beautiful; thanks!

While you're here... are you still going to provide your own version of CSL with Anno Domini for BNW (assuming you're still working on it)?
They're beautiful; thanks!

While you're here... are you still going to provide your own version of CSL with Anno Domini for BNW (assuming you're still working on it)?

I've already done the city states for Anno Domini (though am occasionally adding to the list). I've used a lot of the leaderheads/city states heads donated by others, so there's no new art there, though there's a civilopedia entry for each of the new city-states.

Incidentally, I "stole" a few of Ekmek's Civ 4 leader images (as well as a few Firaxian ones) for some of the city state leaders - they actually work quite well in my opinion!
Oh by the way, Montevideo no longer replaces Sydney, but Honiara.
I've already done the city states for Anno Domini (though am occasionally adding to the list).

No, I was wondering what I should do to ensure compatibility; whether you're going to roll your own version of CSL as you've done in the G+K version or not.

I have two methods of mod support, one is the separate CS Mods art pack I'm putting together for all the mods that I've gathered art for. The other method is something I imagined scenario modders might use, if they wanted to include their own art and automatically integrate with CSL2 (this is how the "Fictional CS - Comedy Movies" mod works). Then CSL2 could be a separate recommended add-on.

Or I can just not worry about it and you can throw a bunch of References in your mod to ensure CSL2's CS popups don't win out if both mods are active.

OK, thanks for the heads-up! Your users won't get 2 Montevideos now if they also have Leugi's Argentina [...or LastSword's Nepal].
Hi guys

Your mod is awesome but I have noticed one pretty hilarious bug with leader name and title

Spoiler :

President Prime Minister Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen of ancient (landlocked) Switzerland :lol:
