    Ya beat me to it;) I've had Siam done for sometime but have been having trouble getting the flag to work right!! Anyway, I'll check it out. I cant believe it took this long for someone else to do Siam/Thailand. I am guessing you used Mongkut as Leader? I went with Chalulangkorn and Narasuen. I'll put mine up here sometime.

    60 Cities

    Leaders
    -------
    Ramkhamhaeng (Spiritual/Aggressive)
    Mongkut (Creative/Philosophical)
    Chulalongkorn (Organized/Financial)
    Adulyadej (Creative/Spiritual)

    Civs
    ----
    Meditation
    Agriculture

    Unit
    ----
    Battle Elephant (11/2)

    Changes I already know I need to make:
    1. I now think elephant is WAY too strong
    2. Meditation needs to be changed. As fitting as it is to have Thailand found Buddhism, it's probably a balance issue, and I don't think it even works upon closer inspection.
    3. Adulyadej isn't really a political leader. I should probably replace him with the prime minister or remove him altogether.
    4. The pedia entries, well, suck.

    The battle elephant should probably be skinned, but I don't think that's something I'll want to tackle.

    And screen shots will come once I figure out how to make them. :)

    I was surprised I didn't see this civ as well. I was afraid all the 'good' civilizations were going to be taken already.

    EDIT: Pics!

    There are some "great" civilizations yet to be released ;)

    You are right about the elephant UU and the starting techs being unbalanced and overpowered. And woah, 60 cities is a lot!

    I love the inclusion of Adulyadej I was going to use him but (silly) thought I was limeted to two :blush: He may not be the political leader, but have no doubt- he IS the leader. My wife is Thai and coudnt care less about Thaksin but she would give her life for the King as would most Thai. Personally, I would leave him in.

    As I probably wont release mine you could use the Pedia entry I 'composed' it is from a few reputable sources and gives a pretty good history of Siam/Thailand. Let me know if you want it and I will send it to you to check out. I know Making pedia entries kinda suck so i can relate with waiting until last to do it. I still have yet to write something about Chalulongkorn and Narasuen...

    Yeah, I already changed the elephant to 9/2 and replaced Meditation with Mysticism, but I want to play with it a bit before I bother re-uploading it.

    Ok, I'll leave Adulyadej. :) And if you'd like me to use your pedia entries, that would be great. If your wife is Thai, I'd be willing to bet you know a lot more about Thailand than I do.

    Cool, I garuantee you that Thai people View Adulyadej as their leader not any politician. I just sent you the info; if you have any questions let me know.
