    Eh, those are already represented amply. Believe the point of this was to give representation to other societies.

    The in-game mod browser is broken for me (never finds any mods), could you please upload a file here ? Thanks ;)

    Try the following:
    1) Clear your My Games/Civ5/Cache and /MODS folder
    2) Remove your config.ini in My Games/Civ5 folder

    Tell me if that works.

    No, it doesn't. I still see no mods in the browser.

    EDIT: Steam did download something (not sure what, was on 1.0.0.20 before and still am), maybe that fixed it. Maybe me not going with DX9 directly but with the launcher and selecting DX9 there fixed it, in any case this time around I did see mods, finally ;)

    Hey Opera, thank you immensely for permitting use of your (awesome) City States in my mod! Due credit will be given ;)
    Two quickies:
    - Could Antananarivo be associated with any of the major Civs?
    - Do they all have Civilopedia entries?

    Just looked at them myself for some inspiration (as I have some new city states in my mod and look for others to add), so here are the answers :)

    No, it is the capital of Madagascar

    None do, unfortunately

    I'll download this to have Quebec in the game. I love that city (or at least the old, tourist filled areas that I saw. =p)

    Tamatave might be more appropriate then (like replacing Ulundi for Capetown - imagine the Dutch discovering Capetown... which was founded by them. Similar for the French discovering Quebec...)

    Antananarivo is ok, it was not founded by any of the civilizations, it already existed before Africa got colonized (and was captured by the French about 270 years after it was founded).

    Even if the civilopedia entry is three sentances long, it still makes it look more professional. You just have to type into the XML file, right?

    I'm in the process of making pedia entries, planned for v3.

    I'm also gonna remove Samarkand to let it be added by zappara's mod since he uploaded his first. I'll be adding some more, like Kiev. Any CS you feel should be in?

    Well, since you've asked ;)
    ShiroKobbure has offered these suggestions for City States for the Civs I'm missing. This denotes in some ways that some regions of the world (North America, Japan) have almost no City State. And then there's Egypt, Babylon & India, who just deserve some closely related ones :)

    His list, just for reference (many are actual full nations, when I'd prefer to keep in the spirit of cities)

    I had carthage in my game, and they were training settlers, but leaving them in Carthage, so they had 2 or 3 stacked settlers.

    A few ones you could include, in case you really need more :) :
    • Sevastopol
    • Manila
    • Wellington
    • Sydney
    • Ur
    • Malta
    • Aruba
    • Prague
    • Minsk

    Loving the mod by the way, it's nice not to see the same old city states pop up every time, gets a bit old after a few games :)

    I wouldn't add Angkor Wat, as it's a wonder. Maybe add Wellington though...
