ActualQuotes for Warlords Version 3.5 This mod replaces the original leader-specific diplomacy text with text based on attributed quotes. Some of the quotes are famous, some not so famous, and all have been implemented as seamlessly as possible, so as to become a natural part of the text. Many quotes have been paraphrased or tweaked to make this possible. Essentially, AI leaders will talk a bit more like they did in real life, or (in the cases of the more ancient ones) the way they wished to be remembered. For example, Ramesses II’s words are from the stone tablets he himself commissioned, while Churchill’s many famous quotes have proved a gold mine for a mod like this. Some leaders have in fact so many good quotes, I have given them two, or even three, first-contact greetings. The game will choose one of the greetings randomly. When you meet one of these leaders for the first time in your next game, he may greet you differently than last time. If you decide to try this new diplomacy text, bear in mind that under most circumstances there is only a small-ish chance the leader with whom you're speaking will use text that is specific to him or her. There is a pool of generic responses that is used more often than those specific to a leader. Since the previous versions, however, I have increased the chance of getting leader-specific text slightly. For more details on the quotes and sources, please see the readme-file. I have used approximately 225 individual, actual quotes, so there is quite a lot of new text. **UPDATE Feb 2007** (Note: patch 3.51 uploaded 13/2/07 did not work properly.
