    Do you by any chance have a larger copy of that Congo Free State map? I kind of want one for my wall. :blush:

    (serious)

    Me too. I'm really interested in the DRC and its predecessor states.

    After Franch Algeria probably even though I have been considering bundling the both of them in one pack since they already have been to a somewhat playable state. So if I had to guess probably early next year

    RawSasquatch also offered to do some art for the LS but he hasn't reported back to me in a while, probably due to his Fallout Civ development and Fallout 4. Although I wouldn't blame him because I've actually dedicated a good time to Fallout 4 myself

    Well your going to have to ask Regalman because he put me at the disadvantage of not giving me the DOM sized map...

    I noticed the new icon. Is that Portugal under [colonialist ruler] or Portuguese Africa?

    The good news for you is that Morton's leader scene is almost finished, though I may make a few more adjustments between now and the time Regalman gets the full-sized map to one of us so I can make the DOM. So with that in mind, here's the current final version:
    Spoiler :


    It's been a wild ride trying to get this done between all my other civs and Fallout 4, and every time I got something done I wasn't happy with it. I started with a different model for the body and hated it when it was almost done, so I switched out to the rifle-toting one, which took a long time, then I decided I didn't like the background, but halfway through putting a new one together I realized it didn't work well and switched back to the current one, and I'm STILL not 100% happy with how his face turned out after all that, but I decided it's acceptable enough to present. I'm looking forward to seeing the civ in action!

    Heres something I came up with after some research:

    Spoiler :
    *Promotions:
    Desert and Desert Hills: Survivalism I

    Grassland and Grassland Hills: Scouting I

    Plains and Plains Hill: Mobility


    Some of its not codeable but I would like to see if there is a viable alternative and of course something additional part for the UA.

    What happens if an Askari is trained in a city on a desert hill, grassland hill, or plains hill? Or in tundra or snow?

    How can a pillaged tile not have an improvement?

    I specified a bit more. Tundra or Snow would be ignored because I don't think there has been a prominent part of the climate and environment in South Africa.

    It would sound really short and not very technical if I didn't.

    EDIT: So some feedback would be nice...

    Way, Way too simple. Single effect UAs gotta be strong, and this UA isn't enough. I do like the UU's concept, as I found scouting promotions quite useful on regular units. I do not like the naming though, askari should probably be reserved for other colonial civs IMO. About the blockhouse: I didn't quite like it...

    Depends on how much damage is dealt.
