    It's nothing really urgent, but maybe you should check Suppi and Sunni Ali if you find some time (links in the previous page)
    I uploaded 3 of Amra's LHs a while ago, and I wanted to update all 3 of them to an optimized version, not just Topiltzin

    Actually we have new quotes for all leaders included in Capo's Diplomacy II
    MadmanofaLeader and AlmightyDF wrote most of them, I think most of them are really good
    At least 60-70 % of the LHs you optimized are in Diplomacy II, I can easily check them out
    For what LHs do you need quotes?

    Btw, I edited my last post later (about Sargon), not sure you saw that

    I'm in the process of deciding which LHs to add to QC, but if you'd like to help I could use help;)

    Sargon - thanks, I will check the anims!

    edit: ummmm, how does one change the anims...?

    Of course, I would definitely like to help at the quotes and in the LHs :D
    But just after the Denmark-Kamerun World Cup match ;)
    Maybe we will also check a few museums. There are quite a few nice programs in the Night of the Museums here in Szeged...
    So I guess I won't be here that much tonight, tomorrow I will have more time

    Cool, Tamerlane is already in
    For which leaders do you need proper quotes?

    My primary concern is QC, thus I need quotes in WoC format.

    Hitler
    Hussein
    Jingu
    Kim Jong Il
    Lenin
    Logan
    Mandela
    Meiji
    Nebuchadnezzar
    Nefertiti
    Putin
    Reagan

    If you need diplotext, you can find it in my mod. If you don't feel like downloading it, I uploaded the necessary file here. I inserted real quotes for people who had them, so enjoy.

    I use WoC format for them in my mod, check Assets/Modules/Leaderheads. I don't have diplo text for all leaders (nor do I use all the same leaders you do), but there is certainly some overlap.

    The more modularized xml from World of Civilization. It allows for modular diplomacy (i.e. a diplo-xml file per leader instead of one large one).

    Oh, well, I don't know how to do that, but you can copy the text from my file to make your own files- it should be a problem. Especially that you don't need that many LHs as I have in the game. The text, by the way, was written mostly by myself, but of course Madman's text is there too, and some greetings from CivGold as well as some from CivCol.

    Hey avain!
    Check these 3 DiploTexts. I tried to make them similar to the ones you already use in VD
    If you like them (and the format is ok), I will check the other leaders from your list too

    EDIT: next post

    Alright, here is the next version, I used the same structure you use in VD
    15 new leaders are in the rar, and I made some changes to the previous ones...

    I'm still not totally sure on WoC though, you have to edit only the DiplomacyInfos.xml besides the files I already posted?


    EDIT: updated xml files later in this thread

    Thanks!

    WoC: yes, it's DiplomacyInfos.xml, you can check one from QC how it's done (I believe Henry and some other's already have a full DiplomacyInfos.xml, you can start from those)

    I'm further reworking most of the diplotexts
    Fixing small mistakes, adding more lines, changing the not suitable ones
    Also added a few more leaders, right now I'm at about 30

    Will you add the leaders I suggested previously (Constantine, Chandragupta, Afonso and Ogedei)?
    I also have good diplolines for them

    Hey avain!
    I was wondering, what personality you use for these leaders? Are they custom or vanilla ones?
    Because I also have some good unique personalities by cybrxkhan...
