edit: all finished with leaders.
maybe abit late, but could we have Gordon Brown as the leaderhead for NATO, he is the political head of NATO's leading European member, never know, might already be one out there too.
NP if it cant be done mind
I'll let you euro-types work that one out.
It doesn't matter to me, I haven't done NATO yet.
Maybe look around for a Brown LH. If there is one already made that would be sweet.
I think it is fine to have real photos of the leaders for button placeholders. Although I suggest that these are only for civiliopedia entries. In the foreign advisor screen we should use buttons with the civ's flags. This screen will be so overcrowded that you won't be able to read the button's markings. I guess it will be problematic to find the right leader out of 45 pictures. Flags are easier to recognize.
I'd also suggest to use the civ names instead of leader names for the score ranking on the right side of the game screen.
Both good ideas, I will look into how we display country names in the scoreboard. I can't imagine it will be too hard, I have seen it before. Does everyone like that? Speak up if you don't.
As far as buttons, I don't think we can have one set of buttons for the pedia and one for the adviser screen. We'd have to use flags for everything. We'll see how it looks when the map is made and then we can make changes. Flag buttons are already used for every civ, so we have them handy.
Honestly, I suspect that screen is going to be pretty well worthless no matter what. I don't use it when I play a 34 civ game, to crowded. We have 46(47?) playable civs.
Yes. Rhye's does display civ names instead of leader names. It does also use the civ buttons in the foreign advisor screen.
1) BUG Mod can do that!
2) The Revolution Mod automatically makes it so if there are too many civs on the scoreboard (i.e. is going off the screen) it only displays the top 10 (or something around that) civs on the scoreboard and puts a button at the bottom saying how many civs aren't displayed (i.e. +10 Civs). If you click the button it expands the scoreboard to what it would look like normally, with the bottom showing and the very top shooting off the screen. Of course, you can always shrink it again.
Stop making me look stupid! lol

and the rest (plus average example of placeholder LH):
looking good guys
The leader traits are not yet adjusted, are they? Since I was puzzled about Chavez' traits in the screenshot.
Leader traits are adjusted, not perfected yet. Many will have to be tweaked.
Favorite civics/religions have to wait until we have those aspects finished.
Keep in mind, religions have become ideologies, so making Chavez "spiritual", make sense. ;-)
Why not switch José Manuel Barroso with some leader from an EU civ, like Sarkozy, Merkel or Zapatero?
Likewise, why not make Gordon Brown the head of NATO.
They're certainly more well-known than Barroso and Scheffer.
Could you guys supply what default leaders you based yours on, as well as what their traits and flavor tags are at the moment?
I doubt it, but if someone wants to do that, great. Some of the leaderheads and placeholders we are using can be found in the art thread, but it's not totally accurate or up to date. The best way to find that info would be to download the latest update.
we have the president of Pakistan wrong!
it should be Asif Ali Zardari
apart from that, its all looking grand
yes, the two outdated leaders are:
We've decided to use these two anyway unless someone can come up with better art for Medvedev or Zardari.
Separate names with a comma.
