    That's correct. It's a bit problematic and there are a lot of mounted UU's as it is. In the last version we did add some Central Asian civs, like the Uyghur.

    Scythia is already in and we have discussed adding Parthia, but I forgot why we left it out.

    We also added the Oxus, Buryat, Seleukid and Kushan civs - all central Asian. And we'll be adding the Xiong Nu to 5.0, along with Palmyra.

    That's nice.

    I also have, er, well, more random civilization suggestions, rather than requests outright. Food for thought, I guess.


    1. The Cholas were a powerful Indian maritime empire in Southeast Asia.

    Leader: Rajendra Chola I (Fin, Imp/Agg)

    UB: Maritime Port (Harbor)


    2. The Bosporan Kingdom, one of the first and more distant Hellenic Kingdoms, located in nowadays Ukraine.

    Leader: Polemon I (Org, Ex)
    UU: Bosporan Hoplite (Replaces Spearman)
    UB: Kurgan Mound (Replaces Walls? Moument?)


    3. The Mitanni were one of the Near Eastern Empires that competed with Ancient Egypt.

    Leader: Shaushtatar (Agg, Imp)
    UU: Hurrian Chariot (?) (Replaces Chariot)

    All good suggestions! I'd probably pass on Dahomey, only because we've made a real effort to represent West Africa in Benin (5.0), Nigeria, Mande, and Kanem-Bornu.

    I'll take a look at the rest.

    PS - I responded to your PM. Sorry for the delay!

    Yes and yes.

    The only holdup with the Huns is that there seems to be a couple of different versions in progress. But when release time comes around, we'll choose one and go with it.

    Are you interested in making any LHs? I have a couple that still need doing.

    UU: Shaturnal (Replaces Cavalry? Cuirassier?)

    2. Colchis ruled was one of the earliest kingdoms in Georgia, and also was featured in the Greek legend of Jason and the Argaunauts.

    Leader: Aeëtes (Fin, Pro)
    UU: Bronze Warrior (Replaces Axeman)
    UB: Trading Port (Replaces Harbor)


    3. The Crimean Tartars were the last political descendants of the Mongol Empire, ruling over a large portion of Eastern Europe between the 1400s and 1700s.

    Leader: Devlet I Giray (Ind, Cha)

    You know, I'd like to have another Balkan civ for scenario purposes and Serbia would be ideal. I hate to keep adding civs, though, only because project "scope creep" is a definite killer.

    Let see how much I can get done this week.

    Are the sounds for the Irish going to be fixed? They annoyed me so much that I swapped them with the Celtic ones.

    * Latvia, Latvians, Latvian

    * nope

    * Jānis Čakste Charismatic and Philosophical, favourite civic Nationhood

    I think the Julius Caesar leaderhead can be used. Just need to remove the upper hair, make him beard and put up in black suit.

    Sevopedia text: Jānis Čakste born September 14, 1859 in Lielsesava, Latvia, died March 14, 1927 in Riga, Latvia was a Latvian politician and the first president of Latvia.
    He studied law in Moscow University, graduating in 1886 and became a lawyer and political activist in Latvia. In 1906, he was elected to Duma, the parliament of the Russian Empire where he promoted the idea of autonomy for Latvia.
    In 1918, he became the president of Latvia's People's Council (Tautas Padome), a temporary government that proclaimed the independence of Latvia. Čakste was elected as a president for Latvia in 1922, reelected for a second term in 1925 and died while still president in 1927. He was a member of Latvian academic union "Austrums".

    * Latvian Rifleman (Replacement of Rifleman) Picture

    Sevopedia text: Latvian riflemen were military formations assembled starting 1915 in Latvia in order to defend Baltic territories against Germans in World War I. Initially the battalions were formed by volunteers, and from 1916 by conscription among the Latvian population. A total of about 40,000 troops were drafted into the Latvian Riflemen Division. From 1915 to 1917, Latvian Riflemen fought in the Russian army against the Germans in positions along Daugava river. In December 1916 and January 1917, Latvian riflemen suffered heavy casualties in month-long Christmas Battles which began with a surprise attack on German positions during Christmas. Suffering heavy casualties, Latvian riflemen managed to break the German line of defense but the effort was wasted as the attack was not continued. The Russian Army lost over 26,000 soldiers in the failed attack. The casualties included 9,000 Latvian riflemen, about a third of the total number at that time. The heavy casualties resulted in a strong resentment for the Russian generals and tsar among the riflemen. This resentment led to an increased support for the Bolsheviks, who were advocating an end to the war.

    * Boulevard circle (Wall)

    Sevopedia text: Boulevard Circle and its key element, channel, embrace the Old Riga from three sides, enclosed by the Daugava River from the remaining side. Ensemble of parks, created after 1856, became the first stage of fortification system reconstruction commenced in the 17th century by Swedish military engineers. Extensive parks with few loosely scattered buildings and residential blocks have become a wonderful counterpoint to the Old Riga. Boulevard Circle separates the Old Riga from Art Noveau blocks in the centre.
