    @DJ_Tanner, I just happened to read your OP posts and they are great. Thanks for doing this. Very illuminating, not to mention interesting. Learned something today with some of them.

    Also, I believe you meant to say sacred lotus twice in the India one.

    Rise and Fall is in! Got everything caught up and up to date with all the civs and CS up to the expansion and all R&F civs as well (CS will wait until after release). Hope you enjoy, I learned some fun new facts, my favorite was Scotland.

    Nubia is still bugging me (you can see my note for more details).

    Nice job, but I don't see the Mapuche.

    Yeah was in another file for some reason, fixed.

    edit: actually it was a little light, I beefed it up some as well.

    I think it's time to revive this thread. Also Babylon and Antioch need to be added to the list.

    I thougt initially it was some strange Mexican day-of-the-dead-like design.

    After some more checking, I’m afraid it is only a cactus.

    Considering the generic choice, I’d bet Mexico City is Toronto’s replacement.

    Bologna has a three towers symbol?
    Fez's symbol is unknown
    Ngazargamu's is a crescent moon.
    Rapa Nui's is a Moai.
    Nazca's is unknown. I'm hoping for a Nazca line bird symbol.

    Bologna's icon seems to be derived from the Two Towers in the city.

    Fez has the typical star, we've seen it. (not the one from the Moroccan flag)

    It’s strange, but just look for Brunei coat of arms and you’ll identifi it is a stilyzed version of the upper middle part.

    Fez has a 8-point star made out of two squares (middle lines deleted). Seems to be linked with wisdom and scholarship in islamic simbology, so I’d say its appropiate for a Scientific CS

    Worth repeating.

    I like to know about Antioch and Babylon's symbols.

    Antioch probably represents Byzantine Christian art, where the dots represent the halo? Can't find anything that clearly resembles the icon.
    Babylon has the head of Lion of Babylon

    There is a new icon for Bandar Brunei.
    You should rename your current one back to Jakarta.

    Also where is Seoul and Toronto?
    You should keep all replaced city-states too.
    Don't remove any interesting information IMO.
    Maybe take a note for those, that they were replaced, and no longer in the game as city-states, but full civs.
