"Behind every great man is a great woman" http://www.filefront.com/15435619/WomenOfTheSword.zip This is a pet mod project of mine that I think is ready for an Alpha release. It started out that I wanted to added Joan of Arc and it quickly grew into adding female leaders to all the civs. To keep the mod from having too many leaders, I then removed all the male leaders. This still left over 40 leaders in the game. This release is more like a reskin of BtS and focused on the leaders and their traits. There is place holder art for a number of leaders. There are also a number of reskinned units, but by no means complete. While I plan to make some of my own leaderheads for the next release, I certainly won't turn down any contributions I'm also open to feedback, specifically around leaders I should have included as well as leaders that should be cut. Also leader traits and flavor (I spent a great deal of time making sure there wasn't overlap with traitis; see the file WotS_LeaderTraitsFlavor.xls) Speaking of which, I'd like to thank SaibotLieh, esvath, strategyonly, kathy and the other talented people for sharing female military units as well as the fantastic LeaderHead artists (I am still working on a file with credits) Here are some details: what's in - 38 new female leaders (44 female leaders total) - leaderhead xml (traits, flavor, diplomacy) - some unit reskins - Monkeys! (technically the gorilla animal unit) what's not - placeholder leaderhead art such as Sarah Plain - new events - some leaders are a stretch, such as Teuta for the Romans, Ishtar, Wu Quinghua - some leaderhead head art doesn't match, such as Ice Queen as a placeholder for Viking leader Freydís - some units aren't animated right, such as the Budhist missionaries thanks in advance for checking it out and I you enjoy the direction it's headed.
