    I'd like to see a Belgian civ based on the colonial efforts of Leopold II:

    Leader: Leopold II - Overseas Colonisation: Units are at +2 strength when on a continent different from their capital (I don't know if this is a valid ability).

    UU: Force Publique - replaces Musketman - functions as a Musketman, but without terrain penalties to movement.

    UB: Territorial Service - replaces Courthouse - half the building cost and maintenance of a Courthouse.

    I would love to see the SIOUX in the game.

    Spoiler :
    Leader: Gall - Prarie Riders - Mounted units suffer no movement costs on any tile with plains.
    UU: Wakina Musketman (replaces Musketman, gets 33% bonus when fighting in an area without borders)
    UU: Dog Soldier (replaces Knight, recieves 33% bonus when defending)

    Also I would like the SCOTS:
    Spoiler :
    Leader: William Wallace - Highland Life - Mine and Quarry building time halved, farm building time +33%
    UU: Scottish Fusilier (replaces riflemen, ignores hill movement costs)
    UB: Palisade (replaces Walls, +2 to city strength)

    Or even the (tired yet?) FRANKS:
    Spoiler :
    Leader: Charlemange - Holy Rome - Temple and monastery production cost -33%
    UU: Axe thrower (replaces Archer, moves through forest and jungle as if it were open terrain)
    UU: Battering Ram (replaces Catapult, +100% versus cities with walls, but needs another unit next to it)

    If anyone could make these I'd be grateful

    Gotta give my voice here too.

    Harappan (also known as Indus Valley Civilization). Existed during the bronze age. Very little is known of this ancient yet powerful civilization. For example their language is unknown and forgotten in history.

    Mesopotamia. One of the oldest civilizations. Date as early as the 7000 BC and lasted till around 7th century BC.

    Hittite. And absolute must.

    Sumer. Need I say more?

    Armenia. Surprisingly interesting considering how old the civilization is, yet still so tiny. Been here as Armenia since 2492 BC to this very day.

    Sweden. It has been here for quite a long time. Mainly untouched as well.

    Modern civilizations rarely feel like they've earned their place. It's a shame historians know so little about American civilizations and cultures other than the mandatory Incan, Aztec, Mayan, Zapotec, Olmec, and so on. Nearly every civilization in South America has been replaced by Spanish and Portuguese invaders.

    Of course there are some other civilizations which didn't develop enough to stand against the invaders. Take Australia and the aboriginals (or are they called Native Australians now?).

    Germany would be awesome if some1 could change the UU Landsknecht to something different i.e "Deutschritter"

    Reason: Although effective, "Landsknechte" were mostly only mercenary soldiers and often marauders :rolleyes:

    Another argument for me is that this would mean a possible upcoming uu with a pike for switzerland woud be still available :D (landsknecht also was build based on a swiss role model )
    Sry for my bad English!

    Keep up the good work! :goodjob:

    Mwahahaha I came up with something new :p

    New Zealand
    Civiliopedia Entry
    Spoiler :
    New Zealand is an island country in the south-western Pacific Ocean comprising two main landmasses (the North Island and the South Island), and numerous smaller islands, most notably Stewart Island/Rakiura and the Chatham Islands. The indigenous Māori language name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, commonly translated as land of the long white cloud. The Realm of New Zealand also includes the Cook Islands and Niue (self-governing but in free association); Tokelau; and the Ross Dependency (New Zealand's territorial claim in Antarctica).

    New Zealand is notable for its geographic isolation: it is situated about 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) southeast of Australia across the Tasman Sea, and its closest neighbours to the north are New Caledonia, Fiji and Tonga. During its long isolation New Zealand developed a distinctive fauna dominated by birds, a number of which became extinct after the arrival of humans and the mammals they introduced.

    The majority of New Zealand's population is of European descent; the indigenous Māori are the largest minority. Asians and non-Māori Polynesians are also significant minority groups, especially in urban areas. The most commonly spoken language is English.

    New Zealand is a developed country that ranks highly in international comparisons on many topics, including education, economic freedom, and lack of corruption. Its cities also consistently rank among the world's most liveable.

    Elizabeth II, as the Queen of New Zealand, is the country's head of state and is represented by a Governor-General, and executive political power is exercised by the Cabinet of New Zealand.

    Polynesian settlers

    New Zealand is one of the most recently settled major landmasses. The first known settlers were Eastern Polynesians who, according to most researchers, arrived by canoe in about AD 1250–1300. Some researchers have suggested an earlier wave of arrivals dating to as early as AD 50–150; these people then either died out or left the islands. Over the following centuries these settlers developed into a distinct culture now known as Māori. The population was divided into iwi (tribes) and hapū (subtribes) which would cooperate, compete and sometimes fight with each other. At some point a group of Māori migrated to the Chatham Islands where they developed their distinct Moriori culture.

    European explorers

    The first Europeans known to have reached New Zealand were Dutch explorer Abel Janszoon Tasman and his crew in 1642. Māori killed four of the crew and no Europeans returned to New Zealand until British explorer James Cook's voyage of 1768–71. Cook reached New Zealand in 1769 and mapped almost the entire coastline. Following Cook, New Zealand was visited by numerous European and North American whaling, sealing and trading ships. They traded European food and goods, especially metal tools and weapons, for Māori timber, food, artefacts and water. The potato and the musket transformed Māori agriculture and warfare, although the resulting Musket Wars died out once the tribal imbalance of arms had been rectified. From the early nineteenth century, Christian missionaries began to settle New Zealand, eventually converting most of the Māori population, although their initial inroads were mainly among the more disaffected elements of society.

    Becoming aware of the lawless nature of European settlement and of increasing French interest in the territory, the British government appointed James Busby as British Resident to New Zealand in 1832. Busby failed to bring law and order to European settlement, but did oversee the introduction of the first national flag on 20 March 1834, after an unregistered New Zealand ship was seized in Australia. In October 1835, the nebulous United Tribes of New Zealand sent the Declaration of the Independence of New Zealand to King William IV of the United Kingdom, asking him for protection. Ongoing unrest and the legal standing of the Declaration of Independence prompted the Colonial Office to send Captain William Hobson RN to New Zealand to claim sovereignty for the British Crown and negotiate a treaty with the Māori. The Treaty of Waitangi was first signed in the Bay of Islands on 6 February 1840. The drafting was done hastily and confusion and disagreement continue to surround the translation. The Treaty however remains regarded as New Zealand's foundation as a nation and is revered by Māori as a guarantee of their rights.

    In response to New Zealand Company attempts to establish a separate colony in Wellington, and French claims in Akaroa, Hobson, now Lieutenant-Governor, declared British sovereignty over all of New Zealand on 21 May 1840. The two proclamations published in the New Zealand Advertiser and Bay Of Islands Gazette issue of 19 June 1840 "assert on the grounds of Discovery, the Sovereign Rights of Her Majesty over the Southern Islands of New Zealand, commonly called 'The Middle Island' (South Island) and 'Stewart's Island' (Stewart Island/Rakiura); and the Island, commonly called 'The Northern Island', having been ceded Sovereignty to Her Majesty." The second proclamation expanded on how sovereignty over the "Northern Island" had been ceded under the treaty signed that February.

    Under British rule, New Zealand had initially been part of the colony of New South Wales, but became a separate Crown colony in 1841. Hobson initially selected Okiato as the capital in 1840, before moving the seat of government to Auckland in 1841. Increasing numbers of European settlers came to New Zealand particularly from the British Isles. The Māori were initially eager to trade with the 'Pakeha', as they called them, and many iwi became wealthy. As settler numbers increased, conflicts over land led to the New Zealand Land Wars of the 1860s and 1870s, resulting in the loss and confiscation of much Māori land. The details of European settlement and the acquisition of land from Māori remain controversial.

    Representative government for the colony was provided for in 1852 when the United Kingdom passed the New Zealand Constitution Act 1852. The 1st New Zealand Parliament met in 1854. In 1856 the colony became effectively self-governing with the grant of responsible government over all domestic matters other than native policy. Power in this respect would be transferred to the colonial administration in the 1860s.

    In 1863 Premier Alfred Domett moved a resolution that the capital transfer to a locality in Cook Strait, apparently due to concern that the South Island might form a separate colony. Commissioners from Australia (chosen for their neutral status) advised that Wellington was suitable because of its harbour and central location, and parliament officially sat there for the first time in 1865.

    20th and 21st centuries

    In 1907 New Zealand declared itself a Dominion within the British Empire. In 1947 the country adopted the Statute of Westminster, making New Zealand a Commonwealth realm, although in practice Britain had long since ceased to play a significant role in governing New Zealand. As the country became more politically independent, however, it became more dependent economically; in the 1890s, refrigerated shipping allowed the export of meat and dairy products to Britain, a trade which provided the basis for strong economic growth in New Zealand.

    New Zealand was an enthusiastic member of the British Empire, fighting in the Boer War, World War I and World War II, especially in the Battle of Britain, and supporting Britain in the Suez Crisis. The country was very much a part of the world economy and suffered as others did in the Great Depression of the 1930s. The depression led to the election of the first Labour government, which established a comprehensive welfare state and a protectionist economy.

    New Zealand experienced increasing prosperity following World War II. However, some social problems were developing; Māori had begun to leave traditional rural life and move to the cities in search of work. A Māori protest movement eventually developed, which criticised Eurocentrism and worked for more recognition of Māori culture and the Treaty of Waitangi, which they felt had not been fully honoured.

    In 1975, a Waitangi Tribunal was set up to investigate alleged breaches of the Treaty, and it was enabled to investigate historic grievances in 1985. In common with other developed countries, social developments accelerated in the 1970s and social and political mores changed.

    Britain's membership of the European Economic Community in 1973 drastically reduced access for New Zealand exporters to their previous largest market. In 1953 two-thirds of New Zealand's exports went to Britain, by 2003 this figure had reduced to 4.65%. This and the oil shocks of the 1970s led to significant economic and social changes during the 1980s under the 4th Labour government largely led by Finance Minister Roger Douglas, whose policies are commonly referred to as Rogernomics.

    Leader: James Cook (yes I KNOW he wasn't the boss who cares he was THERE)

    Trait: Woodcraft: +1 production from lumbermill, woods and jungle produce +2 production when worked by a city.

    UU: ANZAC (replaces infantry, Can defend while embarked and starts with Amphibious, slightly more expensive)

    strategy and ingame info
    Spoiler :
    In-game info
    the ANZAC can defend while embarked and starts with amphibious, unlike the infantry which it replaces.

    ANZACs are true naval infantries. With the exception of the songhai, these guys are the only people possible to defend while embarked! This can be used as an invasion troops, but don't overdo it - they could be really tough on your economy.

    UB: Woodcrafting Workshop (replaces workshop, +3 culture added to workshop bonus but city must be built next to forest or jungle)

    (mainly to stop all the woods being chopped down, the UB might also encourage universities if close to jungle)

    All these Wales/Scotland/Ireland civs should just be consolidated into the Celts. They were all over Europe back in the day, and are only individual states now because of conquest. This same consolidation could apply to the Scandinavian countries.

    The Celts should get a unique building which is a library modification, with added defense in addition to normal library increases. Maybe an ability that allows for easier cultural victory, imitating the Celts' role in Europe during the Dark Ages. UU: Bataireacht, stick fighters with shillelaghs, knights without the need for iron.

    This is technically not a single leader but a request for a gameplay system including many.
    My idea is that anarchy, a short occurance will happen for longer periods of time. Instead of all your production being gone, it will go to the city automatically creating enemy soldiers and about 50% of the time a settler. If this happens you are screwed, as they will start a new city and essentially a new nation known as a rebel state which is almost always hostile to you. The rebel will be unique to each civilization as follows.

    America: Jefferson Davis and the Confederacy
    Arabia: Zayd Ibn Ali
    Aztecs: Malinche and the Tlaxcalans
    China: Mao (or liu bang)
    Egypt: (Also technically not a rebel) Akhenaton
    England: Cromwell
    France: Robespierre
    Germany: Hitler and the Nazis
    Greece: Alcibiades and the Peloponesian League (Rebbellion against the Delian League)
    India: Rani Lakshmibai (Technically not a rebbbellion against india but one against those who practically owned it, the british.)
    Iroquois: Tadodaho
    Japan: Amakusa Shiro (Japanese history is my weakpoint, please tell me if there is one more qualified.)
    Ottoman: T.E. Lawrence
    Persia: Mazdak (or Aristogoras)
    Rome: Spartacus (or Boudicca, Vercingetorix, Julius Ceaser and many many others)
    Russia: Lenin (Although I think Rasputin is more suited for the time period.)
    Siam: Phetracha
    Songhai: Judar Pasha
    Babylon: Urukagina of Lagash (Technically against sumeria but they are almost the same.)
    Mongolia: Batu Khan and the Golden Horde (Technically not a rebellion but a breakaway state)

    I want to create a map of Britain and Ireland. I would have the start date as 410AD (when Roman government in Britain ended). The factions would be:

    1. Venedotia (north Wales), cities would include Din Gonwy, Segontium, Aberffraw, Dol Badarn
    2. Powys (west midlands), cities would include Viroconium, Deva, Mathrafal, Bassa
    3. Corieltauvi (east midlands), cities would include Ratae and Calchwynedd..
    4. Dumnonia (south west England), cities would include Caer Uisc, Din Tagel, Sarum
    5. Dyfed (south Wales), cities would include Caer Fyrddin, Dinefwr, Dryslwyn, Caerlleon
    6. Rheged (north west England), cities would include Caer Luisig, Lyrpwl, Caermeinion, Alt Cluidh
    7. Northumbria (north east England), cities would include Eoferic, Bamburgh, Lindinis
    8. Anglia (eastern England), cities to include Caister, Ely, Sutton Hoo
    9. West Saxons (southern England), cities to include Winchester, Chichester, Canterbury, London
    10. Pictavia (eastern Scotland), cities to include Scone, Aberdeen, Inverness
    11. Dalriada (western Scotland), cities to include Dunadd, Iona, Stornoway
    12. Ulaidh (northern Ireland), cities to include Armagh, Fermanagh, Omagh
    13. Connacht (western Ireland), cities to include Cruachain, Roscommon, Curcaigh

    This mod would be self contained within the British Isles. The Anglo-Saxon factions (Anglia, West Saxons, Northumbria) would have resource bonuses to give an advantage. The British factions would have terrain advantages such as mountains, forests and marshland.
