    Sneek a peeks for the next version:

    Spoiler :

    The King and Colony flags, the Kings got Regulars, the Colonies have the Veteran Soliders


    Some Help for you to see where the different colonies are, this shows their location.


    The flag of the Danish King, have you noticed the small, yellow lion holding an axe at the upper right part? That's the lion from the Norwegian Coat of Arms. This is the flag i am most happy with.

    I know, but i guess i can add my civs into his MOD only by copying some XML from my work to his, as i then do not need to disturb his work. Will ask him for permission first thought :)

    Happy new year:)

    Nice mod!
    Will you change the diplomatic music for the leaderheads? Cause If you will and need music feel free to ask, I have a lot of music from different countries.

    Oh, and when is the next release :D ?

    The next realease will be as soon as charle88 has finished his new LH's and i've added them to the new civs, so i cant say for sure. But if you want i could make some easy add on, prewiue civilizations you can download :)(those won't have any animated LH's or pedia-text)
