    I was going to make some advisors for my mod, but I needed to test my skills first. So I made this. The advisor does not have different moods (he's always smiling...), but this is just a test version. I'm going to make something better soon.
    So now all I need to do is ask you a few questions. But first I would like to thank the people who helped me with getting the palette right - particularly Risbinroch who introduced me to the wonderful Paint Shop Pro 3. Here's the questions:
    1) Is this any good? What could have been done better?
    2) Can you see where I got these graphics? Does it matter (if you can't see it, I'm not sure I'm going to tell you)
    3) Why do we have thousands (or at least hundreds) of different Leaderheads - but almost no advisors? They're simpler to make than animated LHs but I've only seen a few different ones made.

    (and if you were in doubt: the ancient advisor IS wearing pants)

    Here's the file

    I see where you got it. I don't think it matters that much, though.

    Thanks for the comments. I'm not sure if a toga would be good for a military advisor (who is supposed to look northern European). Also, I haven't got the University expansion. I've already wasted too much money on that game :rolleyes:

    Hmm, reminds me of The Sims 2. ;)

    I must admit that I am surprised that so many people can see it. I didn't know that there is such a big overlap between Civ fans and Sims fans (though I'm only a Civ fan... I should never have spent so much money on Sims and Sims2). But since people don't think it matters, I will make some more Sims advisors. Besides, Sims 2 is perfect for making advisors (if only I could find an easy way to make different moods... I'll have to think about that).

    study up on sims 2 console commands... im sure you are able to change the mood of the sims there by giving you the ability to make different moods for the advisor head

    these are quite good, I espically like the modern and acient ones, the acient one for its barbarian hair and the modern one for its nicely military-esque hat. But I think the medieval one needs some work, he looks too modern because his shirt is to flat- it looks like a hawaiian shirt to me. I bet you could find some of those shirts with white poofy colors online pretty easily, on a fansite, because that thing would look great for the medieval time, do you get my drift?

    Yes, I do get your drift (though I think that is a strange thing to call it). I have been thinking of finding some useful clothing (or even hair, beards, glasses etc.) on the fansites.

    Exactly, evirus, that's right. I just said that I wasn't sure if i would tell you where I got the graphics. I didn't say I made them.
