    I think Greco-Roman would fit them better, the Illiad really changed a lot about how I (and many other people, most likely) viewed literature as an interesting and artistic form. Besides many greek historians such as Herodutus, Eratostathenes, and others were first to historically track Troy.

    Would it be possible to, through CulDiv - have them be in the Mediterranean group but get the starting bonus of the Totalitarians, namely the Great General or Hero from start - this may not be worth the effort though.

    Tested Akkad earlier today. Not 100% bug free, but it is easily fixed. Just a pedia error in the Chariot UU and a wrong icon in an atlas.
    Spoiler :


    Also, the damn Food yield icons are there because of Community Patch, never bothered to figure out how to fix it.

    @COF: delete the LUA folder. I'm feeling useful now. :D
    Yeah, I agree with Kvalroos.

    Definitely Greco-Roman architecture. Troy may be in Anatolia, but these were ancient times. The architecture found at the site believed to be Troy is far closer to Greco-Roman than the much, much later architecture of the Islamic world.

    COF, if you go into the community patch mod folder you should find in the Core Files a folder labeled PNM Mods DB. In there find the UI folder, and delete it. That should resolve the food icon problem.

    Playtested Akkad today; all okay, barring one minor icon glitch (see attachment). Played on a duel world with five civilizations (one of my preferred set-ups bizarrely enough, though probably no-one else would be playtesting under those conditions!) The uniques felt balanced. Loved the artwork.

    Thanks! This glitch should be an easy fix.

    Also, here is the current planned icon for Troy:


    Also, Akkad is being tested now in its final build. Here is the banner:


    Would anyone be familiar with how to create the layers to make the letters more civ like?

    Are we talking of the CiV title style? If so - I haven't tried it but - I think you may be able to pull it off with some layer styles in photoshop, specifically satin, gradient overlay, inner shadows, and/or inner glow - then mucking around with the mode/blend settings of each layer style.

    Yeah, about that, I probably won't be able to test Akkad, sorry. Not until tomorrow, that is. I forgot my laptop charger in school.

    After Akkad is out the Sri Lanka update should follow. Just needs bugfixing now. Also added support for Wish for the World and ExCE.

    This looks pretty cool - is it correctly understood that the Laputtu speeds up the construction of an improvement if it is stacked with a worker building one? If so, great synergy with the UA.
    Congrats on the release.

    Brilliant release; well done guys. I like the laputtu unique, i.e. increasing improvement speed on tiles, quite original.
