    I thought I might contribute to the community after having downloaded roughly eight hundred thousand mods or so (y'all are awesome). I read Irkalla's awesome tutorial for making icons, so I thought I'd give it a go on civs I've had ideas for. So here goes!

    First up, the Squamish:



    Next, the Shirvan:



    Here's California, as requested by Ekmek:



    And now we have the Powhatan, with advice from Reedstilt:



    Next up is the Tehuelche, for an upcoming mod:



    The Crusader States icon for bane_:



    And here's an icon for Generic's Vandals:



    And an icon for West Kyushu/Higo:

    Thank you! Hopefully I'll have some other civs up in this thread soon.

    I can definitely give it a shot! Do you want me to go with the same colors?

    Same colors would be great. I mainly took the bear from the flag then just did an outline of it so it wouldn't look like a blob. Thanks in advance I can do a tile improvement or unit in exchange.

    Done and done! I added the icon to the first post, I hope you enjoy!

    I don't plan for it to be an improvement, but rather a Natural Wonder; would you be willing to do the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka?

    I like it!

    I've been wanting to try a natural wonder. What would the model look like? A mountain peak?

    There is a mountain in the Central Highlands (Adam's Peak), but I don't think it should dominate the wonder itself; the draw of the place is the hilly, bio-diverse jungles. Google has a bunch of photos on its image search (here) that might be a useful reference.

    @Ekmek: From what you're saying here, do you mean that natural wonders can be properly added now? I think Pazyryk said that features like that couldn't be dynamically added, which seriously bummed me out.
    Please tell me he was wrong...

    I don't know how to get it in game. I can do the graphics but I think it is possible to replace NWs. I for one would like to replace el dorado.

    And I don't know if it's possible, but my conceptual Sri Lanka civ involved creating unique Natural Wonders inside their territory.

    ah, thats easier. it could just be a tile improvement that looks like a natural wonder but gives the yield of one

    Probably, yeah. I'm code-ignorant so I don't know how those systems work.

    What Paz said was that feature and natural wonder graphics were hardcoded in the graphics engine so even replacing them wouldn't work. However making a natural wonder that is technically an improvement but works the same way ingame should work assuming you can get it to appear at the beginning of the game and outside somebody's territory.

    Hm. That might be problematic for my Sri Lanka idea. But we'll see.
