    Do I get points for "Balding European Male"?

    Anyway, this looks like a West African colony to me.

    Oh well, French Algeria seems like an interesting civilization. I wish I could help, but I will be drowning under work in about a week's time.

    So if anybody here in the modding community can pitch in, can anyone tell me where in the base game folders are the code for the Scramble for Africa scenario civs in BNW? are there any available mods that have SoA scenario civs in a pack? I remember there used to be really old pack someone made, anyhow could anybody lend a hand?

    So I might as well give a quick update because I havent posted here in a long time (this sentence it usless you know this) anyways I am somewhat close to release right now as the art is in process of finishing for both French Algeria and the Belgian Congo (especially FA) and I have a planned collab with somebody else from another famous modding group. Anyways as you have noted in my signature I have had a new civ coming to replace all the other ones that have been recently on hold so I have decided to do the Duchy of Courland:

    It combines the design Hoop made (which I strangely liked) and different version of mines and overall its satisfactory. Hopefully I should get something released by December which is my deadline currently due to issues of procrastination

    Hum, it's a nice compromise between both of our versions. Personally my design was based around on just how persistent Jakob was, founding colonies again, and again, and again despite having them taken from him, and somehow making it work.

    I agree, however, that it's a pretty niche civ focus and requires a particularly odd way to play the game.

    Nonetheless, this one feels nice, the Golden Age focus is something I didn't see coming, but I guess it makes sense.
