    Voted for Turkey, though in all honesty I'm pretty excited for all of the announced LITE civs - in addition it's good to see that the Indo-Greeks aren't gone for good.

    Regalman and I are big fans of them.

    BTW, should I post the design of the Civs? Because that would obviously help people to decide

    That's great to hear - and seeing the designs would also be a good way to drum up interest in the remaining civs.

    Congratulations by the way, to the LITE team for reaching 100 pages!

    I think that is a good idea because it will build a lot of hype, and it would really change what people want.

    Spoiler :
    Tunisia

    Abu Zakariya Yahya

    Tunis

    UA: The Caliphs of Carthage -
    Alt UA: Merchant specialists yield +1 faith and +1 food in cities with a naval garrison, rising to +2 faith and +2 food in desert cities. Whenever a Great Merchant is born, level up all your naval units.

    UU: The Corsair earns additional experience the further it is from the Capital, unlike the Privateer it replaces, and inherits some of the experience from units it kills, allowing it to level up extremely fast to offset its inherently weak strength when compared with the regular privateer. When garrisoned, the Corsair yields +2 gold and +1 great merchant point for every level it has accrued.

    UI: Ribat: The Ribat yields +1 gold and +1 faith, and yields an additional +1 science and +1 faith after researching education, however it may only be constructed on desert tiles. Crucially, whenever you send a trade route from a city, receive science for every worked Ribat in that city.


    Spoiler :
    Bosnia - Herzegovina

    Husein-kapetan Gradaščević

    Sarajevo

    UA: Jerusalem of Europe: Every religion in a city contributes to Great Writer, Musician and Artist generation in that city with +5% . Foreign Great Works lower the needed Culture for the adoption of a New Social Policy.

    UU: Akindzija: Lancer replacement. Much cheaper but also weaker, gains culture from kills and getting killed. No horses required.

    UB: Carsija: Market Replacement, +1 Gold +25% Gold +1 Culture, instead of a Merchant specialist slot it contains a Craftsman specialist slot that provides +1 Tourism and +1 Culture as well as one point towards Great Writer generation in that city.



    Spoiler :
    Troy

    Priam

    Troy

    UA: The Abduction of Helen - When a foreign City to which you are sending a Trade Route produces a Great Person, you have a chance to steal that Great Person (they count as having produced a Great Person, but do not lose their Great Person points). All Defensive buildings extend Trade Routes by 10%.

    UU: Hero(Great General) Fights as strong as the strongest unit you can make. Has the “Battlefield Bravery” promotion, enabling it to convert a random enemy unit adjacent to it when it defeats another enemy unit. Increases great person generation by 25% of whomever civ’s territory it is in, if the civilization is at peace with you.

    UB: Pergamos (Walls) Gives Great Person points whilst the city is damaged.



    Spoiler :
    Turkey

    Ataturk

    Ankara

    UA: Memleketçilik - Experienced units garrisoned in cities generate Tourism. Great Generals may be expended for Social Policies.

    UU: Kuva-yi Milliye - Replaces Gatling Gun. Generates Great Generals faster, and has a greater combat bonus while stacked with one. Levels up (Gains experience?) at double rate.

    UB: Hamam - A replacement for the Garden, the Hamam provides +2 Happiness and Tourism. Unlike the Garden, it costs no maintenance.



    Spoiler :
    Japan

    Shigeru Yoshida

    UA: Technological Wonders: Starting in the industrial era, all buildings and wonders yield tourism equal to their base yield for 5 turns after being built, yields are doubled if no other civs have built this building. Receive a tourism bonus in the capital whenever a science building is built in the empire.

    UU: Mangaka (Great Writer): The Mangaka creates Manga, Great works of writing unique to Japan. These Manga generate double tourism yields for 3 turns when Japan discovers a new technology, this time is increased by one turn for every other civ which has not discovered that technology.

    UB: Kaden Kojo (Research Lab): The Kaden Kojo comes slightly earlier than the Research Lab, at replaceable parts instead of plastics, but does not generate the additional 4 science which a research lab does. Instead, the Kaden Kojo generates +2 science on specialists in this city.


    Spoiler :

    Indo-Greek Kingdom

    Leader: Menander I

    Capital: Taxila

    Leader: Menander I

    Unique Ability: Malinda Panha - While at peace, Unit Production is increased. Gain Culture whenever your citizens convert to any Religion.

    Unique Unit: Yavana Infantry (Spearman) - When conquering a City, causes a Missionary for that City’s religion to appear.

    Unique Building: Agoranomos Office (Mint) - Can be built in Conquered Cities without sources of Gold or Silver. Provides a free Merchant Specialist and generates +10% Culture for each previous owner of the City.


    Best Korea does not seem to be finalized

    The newest Addition to LITE, The Ainu, have been added to the OP and the map(which has also been slightly changed in terms of style)

    The train goes onward to Tunisia at the moment.

    New map looks great! I love the overall feel of the whole collection of civs.


    Quick question, has Madagascar been scraped?

    Though Tunisia is a close second for me, my top choice is Bosnia. My main reason for that is that Carthage in the main game somewhat has that region of the world covered, and many modern Tunisians would see Carthage as being a part of the history of their nation, whereas Bosnia is currently only represented by mods that are years old.

    Pretty sure that Imerina, as the Madagascar civ was named, is confirmed as a collab with Danmacsch at this point.

    That's not the final design for Tunisia! I sure hope Regalman has it saved somewhere because I deleted it after writing the lua.

    Voted for Turkey. Considering I'd be coding it, this seems to be the equivalent of turkeys voting for, um, Turkey.

    That's the plan, yes :). The UA we have is pretty darn cool (or annoying depending on whether you're playing as or against them).
