    Leaders of Varietas Delectat
    current version: v3.2 (for VD 9.1 or stand-alone)
    date added: 2010.06.19​

    This modcomp adds several more leaders for the stock civilizations, and is intended as an add-on for Varietas Delectat mod (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=237192') (although it's made in a modular fashion, so it's quite easy to change/remove/add other LHs, or use these LHs for other purposes)
    All leaders are hand-picked, and optimized to hell (or at least 'till purgatory - believe me, it was some work...)
    All this is done in hope that it's playable without MAFs.


    Includes options to install:
    - Actual Quotes by Willowmound: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=234288
    - Improved Graphics by Chuggi (only the LH changes): http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=293656
    - Install as a stand-alone mod! (no need for VD, but the mod will still be named Varietas Delectat)

    So without further ado, please take a look at the picture below for the added LHs:

    Enjoy!



    Thanks:

    All the leaderhead makers on CFC!
    Most notably: Ekmek, Amra, bernie, Refar, C. Roland, NikNaks, The Capo and really everyone else who contibuted to this amazing set of LHs! Thank you!

    Thanks! I'm more than open to ideas, comments, criticism!

    BTW, do you also have problems with filefront? I'm tempted to move my mods to AtomicGamer...

    Could I use this without VD? Is this playable on its own?

    It would need some minor modifications.

    edit: but I've decided that I'll do it for you. Keep an eye on this thread, I'll upload a new version with a stand-alone install option.

    I have a question: who made the Mobutu LH? It is the first time I see it here.

    The Mobutu LH has some problems, though, particularly with the glasses.

    So anyway, which civs do Mobutu, Ho Chi Minh, and Idi Amin lead in this module? Did you add their respective civs or do they lead regular civs?

    This is only for stock civs, so they are not accurate, but anyway...
    Mobutu and Idi Amin are leading the Zulu and Ho Chi Minh is Khmer.

    updated to v2.0

    Should be a bit better with MAFs, but I still might have to remove some LHs
    Please check it out and report back, thanks
