    First of all, i'm not the one that discovered this. It was TacDev. When i played his Vietnam mod, i did notice something; Instead of the menu music going on and on, The regular soundtrack played. And when i opened the folder it had this new row;
    Spoiler :
    <Row>
    <Type>CIVILIZATION_VIETNAM</Type>
    <Description>TXT_KEY_CIV_VIETNAM_DESC</Description>
    <ShortDescription>TXT_KEY_CIV_VIETNAM_SHORT_DESC</ShortDescription>
    <Adjective>TXT_KEY_CIV_VIETNAM_ADJECTIVE</Adjective>
    <Civilopedia>TXT_KEY_CIV_VIETNAM_PEDIA</Civilopedia>
    <CivilopediaTag>TXT_KEY_CIV5_VIETNAM</CivilopediaTag>

    <DawnOfManImage>ThucPhanDOM.dds</DawnOfManImage>
    <SoundtrackTag>China</SoundtrackTag>
    </Row>

    That's about it,
    Happy modding

    I defined the tracks in the the customized audiodefines xml for the mod and the 2dsoundscripts. This also includes the DawnofMan sound for the civilization defined it its respective xml.

    So I am stumped. How do I create my own soundtags? :confused:

    I've made a discovery... If you set your civ to replace an existing civ, it will use it custom war/peace theme. That may be a clue towards adding new sounds.

    So how can you set your civ to replace an existing one?
    :confused:

    Overall, that's a good idea.

    I suggest looking at the Mongol scenario, it replaces Siam with Jin.
