    Hmmmm...sort of. We have an initial expansion planned - much smaller than 3 or 4, and with a definite theme.

    Am I the only one that's missing the Pirate Civ with Henry Morgan as the leader or what? I could've sworn it was in previous versions.

    That must have been Amra's modpack (a BTS version is in production). We never had a Pirate civ in CIV Gold.

    That's right and I'll have Anne Bonny as another Pirate leader in BtS. Things have slowed down just a bit on my modpack this week, though, as I am taking a break to help Wyz out here & do some preview images for CIV Gold. It's taking longer than I thought it would as (no surprise) there are a LOT of leaders in CIV Gold!!! :crazyeye:

    A good civilization to add might be Switzerland, you could have Adrian von Bubenberg as a leader, Swiss Mercenaries (pikemen) as a unique unit and the Swiss Banking System (bank) could be the unique building.

    Austria- Hungary and especially Venetia would be very nice. The same for Switzerland.. one of my favourite countries :)

    Since i´m atm downloading the new 4.0 version and saw Franco in it - why not also include Hitler ? Would be nice for some modern settings.. or is there an absoulte no go reason for him in Civ Gold ?

    Speaking of Leaders for existing mods - how about Nero for Rome ? I think he´s one of the most interesting and well known rulers of the Empire.

    well that´s just some thoughts from me, thanks anyways for this very great mod and all your work!

    I'm considering Switzerland, as there are some good scenario options possible. Austria and Hungary are already included in 4.0 as separate civs.

    Hitler will be available in an upcoming add-on.

    We are considering Nero or Caligula as an additional Roman leader.

    Thank you!

    No, the Kingdom of Benin is different from the Republic of Benin. The Bight of Benin is named after the kingdom and the republic is named after the Bight. The actual Kingdom of Benin originally started as a village called Ile Ibinu, and then expanded to include southwestern nigeria and even stretched into modern day Benin, Togo, and Ghana. IMO a great option to fill the medieval sub-saharan Africa void;)

    ewu.7waker,

    Can you send me a PM with the following information:

    1 - leader

    2 - UU

    3 - UB

    4 - city list

    If you can help me with some of the dirty work (pedia entries, strategy text, etc.), I'll add Benin for you.

    I've been playing around with the gold mod for about a week now. Giant kudos to you guys. That being said, I kinda want to modify it. Specifically I think Isreal could be split into a modern state, using the Merkava tank as its unique unit (currently the worlds most advanced tank). I think Canaan would be a perfect representation for the ancient cultures that lived in the area. Not sure what UB they would, could have though.

    Something I wouldn't mind seeing in the next expansion is more female leaders. They're always underrepresented.

    Well, we have made a concerted effort to get more female LHs in the pack - Makeda added to Yemen, Joan of Arc added to France, Theodora added to the Byzantines, Margarete added to Denmark, Cleopatra added to Egypt, Amanishabheto added to Nubia, and Trung added to Vietnam. Not to mention adding New Zealand with Clark as the sole leader.

    That's not too shabby.

    We have some coming ideas that will add more female leaders.

    I think Ukrainian civ is totally missing a Zaporozhian Sich leader. I hope some of them shall be included.
    P.S. PSYX has just requested Ivan Sirko LH, so if someone will make it, it'll go very well because he was a very good general, he winned more than 50 battles, so foreign power became interested in him.
