    That actually sounds... pretty astounding. I would definitely be up to making this unit purely invisible because Gillie Suits are just something special...

    The British South Africa design sounds good, it'd be nice to see a reference to mining or the mineral wealth of the region, but otherwise it looks fine. How come you didn't use Rhodes as the leader?

    Out of interest how is the Belgian Congo going as well? The maps and art in the OP are looking really sweet, so I'm pretty hyped for more Colonial civs.

    Well know that you do mention it:
    Spoiler :
    *: Gold, Silver, Copper, or Diamonds.


    Progress of the Congo has been okay at the very least. They're missing Unit Icons, Pedias, UU code, and UB code but the UA has been working with most of test runs I ran with it.

    I do like the revision to the UA, but I feel like the 'Mineral resource' should be extended to any Mine resource, or at the very least to include Diamonds (Coal and Iron were also important but they're strategic so I've no idea if you'd want to include them) to help distinguish it a wee bit from part of Sukritact's Gallic UA.

    I also feel that the chance aspect of it could be removed, seeing as the Railroads come pretty late, but I've no idea if it'd make the civ too powerful or not. Never mind, I failed to consider the second part of the UA - you'll be swimming in luxuries by the late game.

    In other news, that's nice to hear about the Congo mod - I presume their new UB does not require Coal - due to being unlocked prior to it?

    And also don't forget of adding support to More Luxuries (and ExCE if there's anything there that would require it).

    I forgot that ExCE added Rubber for a while - those tiles will be amazing with the Congo. Rather fittingly, I guess.

    Since I just realized that you're making a France civ, I thought I would post my Third French Republic design here and offer help and/or a collab since I kind of want to make them too:

    Man I should really check my feeds. Anyways yeah I'd be somewhat interested in a collaboration but I do need to release some mods already in the works.

    By the way is there anybody here who can do Unit Icons by any chance?

    I might try do something one day. Emphasis on "might", "try" and "one day".

    I've decided to show off some of the great art made by Firebug:

    Thanks! I'm also quite fond of the leader icon as well



    All I need now is just some code, pedias, and models for the UUs and I should be done. Is there any chance someone can provide any one of these three resources?

    The infantry UU is easy to do. How many Golden Age points though? Should it scale with the unit's level or XP? The Spahi's first half can be done with XML. The second half requires UI which I have no idea how to do.

    Um

    I assume we're talking about this effect?
    Or did I miss some other UU effect that deals with GA points?

    I was talking about how the Spahi can be recruited instantly in conquered cities by expending a citizen.

    I would prefer by level if possible.

    Like Caesar was talking about the Spahi would need to have Citizen to be expended. That requires UI which from what I've heard is a nightmare to code.

    Also I have been able to find some fitting models we can convert here and here but reskins are also acceptable in any way, shape, or form.
