    What civilizations have you done so far, or what ones would you be looking to add? I'd be willing to add a couple leaders, depending on the civilization.

    We've collected art for about 10-15 leaders so far, but none have been fully coded yet.

    You don't need coders for XML. Just look at a tutorial or two and you'll be able to do it yourself in no time.

    XML doesn't count as code because its not instructions which a computer executes, its more of just a database which the computer is already programmed to read, making it much easier to do.

    We understand that, but if there's only one person doing it, it's gonna be slow progress.

    We know how to do it, we just only have one person willing to do it. :lol: Giganerd used the wrong word with "coder". So what?

    I'll say maybe. I want to have a look at what the process is for adding a leader/leaderhead into the game, and then figure out what your schedule is...as you can read in my sig, I'm out for a while :D

    He's in. Lets not get over there...in that place... :cringe:
    And I see no reason why if we didn't include him we'd be "wussed out".

    No, no, just saying that I can't think of five German Leaders that surpass him, so not including him would be in fear of offending, and yes I don't want to go to that place either.

    Though tell me, how good is the quality of the new leaders compared with the already made ones?

    Well, we have 4 of the best Leader making artists on the job, (including myself :p), so it will be relatively above average modding. :D

    :bump: I'm going to re-start this project, but I'll still need help doing the XML. I can only do so much! ;) If you're interested in helping out, post here, or sign up at Civ Junction where it's hosted.
