    Well I will certainly have to take notes, I am quite fond of your design. Extremely adaptable, cohesive, and efficient for any situation

    I do a lot of this stuff on... not exactly a commission basis, per se? But people ask me for a lot of disparate Civs, Eli Khaliif in particular, and I love to find out new things so it's not exactly a burden. Most of the time. It also allows me to find out about amazing people like Chang Yuchun, an ethnic Hui general of such talent that his mere presence was likened to a force of ten thousand men, and amazing things, like the Huolongjing, an early artilleryman's text detailing such wonderful things as a double-ended rocket launcher called "Mister Facing-Both-Ways Rocket Arrow Firing Basket". Learning is fun! =]

    Hum, is the Unhappiness reduction permanent? Because that sounds terribly abusable.

    Rumor says modding unhappiness is tricky too...

    The unhappiness reduction isn't permanent, it is to be revoked when war is declared on another civilization but I was to lazy and in a hurry I will edit that sometime now.

    Hello, welcome back to another on of my hair brained Civ ideas so without further ado
    Nyasaland
    Spoiler :
    Leader: Alfred Sharpe
    Capital:Zomba
    Start Bias: Desert
    UA: Heart of Africa
    Food, Production, and Gold Output doubled in Desert tiles, Strategic Resources acquired from Peace Treaties in War produce points toward Golden Ages
    UU: Askari
    Replacement for the Rifleman, Slightly weaker than the unit it replaces it gains +1 movement and 10%Combat Bonus against Units in Desert or Hill tiles
    UB: Colonial Office
    Produces +1 culture per every Declaration of Friendship made with allied Civs. May expend allied City-State influence for additional Military Units

    This is a small civ I made for fun, isnt my finest work but take it for what you will

    Hello, welcome back to the next civ mod idea I had in mind, France faced severe political and military power in both the 1st and 2nd World Wars, The decline of Empires and the belicous conflicts against Fascist governments changed its stance in Central Europe, and its venture in the colonilization of the Asain continent has always fascinated me.
    French Indochina
    Spoiler :
    Leader: Jean Decoux
    Capital: Hanoi
    UA: Grand Federal Council
    Earn +2 Cuture per trade routes with Civs you have never traded with previously, all Naval Units may travel within Cities of neutral Civs if they have established trade routes
    UU:Aviso (Battleship)
    Much weaker than the Unit it replaces, the Aviso has an addtional +1 Movement and costs much less Production, it also has the Unique promotion "Bougain" that gains 10% Combat Bonus against Land Units.
    UB: Haiphong Port (Harbor)
    Gain an additional +1 Production and +1 Gold from worked Sea Resources, Cost to purchase Coastal and Sea tiles are reduced by 15%

    Please, Reception and Feedback is appreciated as I actually had fun making this Civ, maybe Scapegrace had a point about learning this Civs past and making the Uniques fit in with its history

    Update: I will soon be bundling some of these Civ Ideas under categories, upon the completion of East Griquasland organize and develop all African civs as-The Complex Contested Conquest of Africa. Once I finish developing most of these Civ Mod Ideas I'm going to try to approach some modders to see if they make these mods into a reality but I still need some much needed reform and development before I cant get to that point.

    British Guyana
    Spoiler :
    Leader: Walter Egerton
    Capital::c5capital: Georgetown
    UA: Thriving Soil
    Upon founding a City gain a free Worker, Farms provide an additional +1:c5food: Food and a 5%:c5strength: Combat Bonus to Units stationed within them. Cost to purchase Tiles that contain Sugar Cocoa, or Cotton are reduced by 10%
    UB: Booker Line (East India Company)
    Requires Plantation within all Cities, It produces an additional +1:c5gold: per tiles that contain Sugar and +1:c5production: per Market
    UU:Keizer (Great General)
    Unlike the Unit it replaces they provide no Combat Bonus, however they generate :c5culture: Culture on kill and may be expended for :c5influence: City-State annexation or puppeting

    Well its certainly a real powerhouse, I plan on buffing most of my Civs in the future, a very agricultural and expansionist civ, feedback, suggestions, alternatives, etc.

    Wait: does the GG has combat strength? Can it earn experience? Does the sugar bonus is for every time in the empire? I think you should buff the UA slightly...
    But I like the general idea! :D

    Buff the UA? Natan, did you read that part where farms yield +1 food? And that they start with a free worker too? :eek:

    To answer you oddly inquisitive nature Natan
    A) Keizers were essentially retired military serviceman or civil servants that served in a representational assembly during the rule of British Guiana, they don't provide a combat bonus but in every other way their the same as regular GG
    B) What Sugar bonus :p there is a lot of them after all they were initially a plantation-agrarian colony known for its sugar
    C) The UA is already powerful enough as it is as Tarcioscm said

    EDIT: by the way tarcio I enjoyed your HRE, Song, and Etruscan civs

    I like the Laager. I like how it makes you choose between the defensive bonus of the hill and the healing bonus of the Laager.

    Wow its Doc :crazyeye:, thanks I thought it was good fit considering that these Nomadic Griqua people had to establish thier own provicional services considering they had to fight off the crazy Bushmen and Boers coming after them. By the way real big fan of your icons and art.
