    I would like to improve the diplo music in RFCE, with also collecting info about the used ones in the mod.
    So the 2 goals of this thread:
    Identify the already used diplo music (where it is notable, e.g. Prussia, Novgorod, Aragon).
    Suggest new diplo music for the mod (replacing currently used ones is also on the table).

    Info about the used music will be added to the mod's files.

    Diplo music can be easily added for leaders separetely, so it can be suggested for leader(s) or for entire civ(s).
    There are 4 eras in the mod, each leader can have different tunes for those as well.
    In vanilla there are typically 3 variations of the same music for each leader, but I don't think it's important for most civs in RFCE (not being around during the whole game; changing leaders).

    In fact, for some civs even 1 might be enough.
    For most civs I would prefer at least 1 per leader (same music for a given leader in all eras), or at least 2-3 for the 4 eras (same music for all leaders in a given era).
    It can be combined as well.

    Ohh and I would like to collect diplomusic for the 6 upcoming civs as well.
    The leader list for them is not finalized, but I guess for these civs we do not need leader-specific music anyway.

    Also, the suggestions should be made with the extended timeline in mind, so the first 2 eras will be extended (in number of turns), while the last one shortened.

    These latter sound entries have their similarly named (or easily identifable) mp3 audio files in the following directory:
    RFCEurope\Assets\Sounds\Diplomacy\

    Where there is only one audio entry, it's the same music for all 4 eras.
    As it's pretty obvious from a collected list like this, there is room (or even need) for lots of improvements.

    Unless these are already used elsewhere in the mod, you can use the following from SOI if you wanted to "recycle" those soundtracks. Not sure if this is what you were going for or not; but Sicily can go in many directions due to southern Italy and Sicily's history (Greek, Lombard, Norse, Arab).

    Egypt: Baibars_Early, Baibars_Middle, Baibars_Late
    Crimea: Qaibay_Early, Qaitbay_Late, and/or Abbas_Late
    Rum: Alp_Early?
    Sicily: Knight_Middle and Knight_Late, or possibly David_Late.
    Tunisia:

    I tried to change Venice and Genoa Leader diplo music with the ones that was used for Lorenzo leader for History Rewritten mod. It didn't work, because all i got was just silence.
