    My friend made these for the mod that we're working on, what do you guys think?

    Spoiler :


    Spoilers until I figure out how to shrink it :/

    They're nice, but the ring around the outside should be the solid colour of the interior.

    I don't think it matters as much if you're going for a scenario thing, which it looks like those might be

    We plan to try to do one eventually, but for now we're trying to get the Civs into BNW first.

    The two on the far left (Light Blue and Blue, Yellow and Black) are both functioning without any kind of art. The remaining six are in varying stages of development. Anywhere from code in modbuddy to a Google Doc.

    All but one of them are One City ala Venice (although some have different restrictions on annexing). Hopefully as soon as I can figure out inserting art assets I can create a thread here :D

    Kazakhstan.
    Made with the help of the template above, which provided the border.

    Suppose I might as well share mine as well.

    Since I normally use GIMP I lost you around the final few images when you were adding the ring. I improvised a bit though and managed to get something I liked. What do you think?

    I think it's a little too complex. I'd have to see it smaller, though.

    Fall From Heaven 2 Amurite and Bannor, actually I want to do Balseraphs as it's second civ alphabetically. But Balseraph's icon is a detailed engrave complex icon of Smile/laughing Perpentach, so I rather not show it as it's not yet about an hour of work after I got Amurite. Unlike Bannor which take me less than 10 minutes. :)

    Why not use Suk's icon template instead? The icons made with it are pretty much the best ones out there.

    Because when I post here, I want to use the method that is posted in here. If I make the icon with the instruction from another thread. It is really okay that I post here?

    I might redo it using Suk' template, BTW.

    Why are the tails sticking out in the last one? I don't think any base game icons do that.

    Is there a plan for a FFH-type mod in the works? Just curious....

    Not yet as far as I know. I (and I believe some here) mostly draft how to "port" FFH2 to Civ5. I for one waiting for someone who will lead the project and maybe communicate with Kael and other original modders if they have any problem with the project.
    Meanwhile, I'll do art for other Civ project that's less abstract than FFH2 revival. But I would gladly join if there will have one.

    FFH-type? I don't sure if Faerun is. But you can check it out in Civ5>Mod>Modpack forum

    This is the icon I made in GIMP, I found it hard to get the ellipse to look the one in the guide.
