    This mod adds a color outline to the population heads displayed in the city screen. Thought this might be useful, because it is hard to tell the different pictures apart with a glance, unlike CivII

    green = happy
    blue = content
    yellow = unhappy
    red = rebelling


    enjoy,
    Tenaku

    Update!!:

    I just found that the happy colorization doesn't work for captured citizens... the way that CivIII denotes a foreign pop is by doing a palette shift on the base green that every character is colored... so, if you capture units from blue civ, those units show up with a blue outline, even if they are happy, because all the green was shifted to blue. :(
    so i need to find a different color besides green for happy citizens... any suggestions?

    [mod removed due to problem]

    Update 2:
    Fixed the issue by changing the happy color to white. but... it seems i can't post the updated file to this message, so i'll put it further down in this thread... scroll down for the file.

    I see from left to right
    green = happy
    blue = content
    yellow = unhappy
    red = rebelling (none of this horrible color) ;)

    hmmm, i'm not color blind but with your popHeads.pcx file in place my content guy was blue but my happy guy was red. i had a population of 2 blue/content. i linked dye by road and one guy turned red, not green. was it the dye!! :D

    did you have the older version of the popheads mod? if so, a red country's citizen will show up with a red border if he/she is happy.. Sid & Co. do a palette shift of all the green (which each citizen's clothes are by default) to whatever country color you may have captured the city from... so, i changed the happy color from green to white, so that the palette shift effect wouldn't happen...

    if you have the newer version, i'm a little confused :)

    could you send me a screenshot?

    hi Tenaku, i had whatever version was downloadable yesterday (11/3). i didn't play the previous civs and i'm trying to figure this one out so i decided to stay away from mods until i know what i'm doing. i went back to the installed .pcx file.

    Another excellant little tweak of a mod that really makes the game better.

    Don't you just love finishing a game and not getting paid for it? :D :D :D

    This is a fantastic mod, especially on the domestic advisor screen!

    One quick thing, I think you missed the content english/french woman. She seems to have no outline. But thanks for the outstanding and practicial work!

    Tenaku you rock!

    Sorry to mention one more small error in a piecemeal fashion, but there is also one resistor, I think it's the English, French female, who has a red line over her head.

    Let me say again that this mod, along with the improved wonders picks, really makes the game easier to play!

    actually, i am glad that you are pointing these things out to me. whatever helps me improve my mod. :)

    my unhealthy fascination with the persian empire usually prevents me from seeing other population types :)

    tenaku's popheads are back! the most artful of the pophead mods (imvho) are now redone for Civ3 Conquests. check the readme for installation advice.
