    Well, I know you all couldn't wait for this one, so here it is :)lol: )

    Name: Antarctica
    Techs: Hunting, Fishing
    Leaders: Roald Amundsen (expansive, creative) and Richard Byrd (expansive, aggressive)
    Unique Unit: Polar Explorer (replaces the scout, ignores terrain movement cost, +1 power to represent the fortitude it took to explore such regions)
    Flag: Graham Bertram (NAVA) 1996 conceptual flag


    1.61 version
    http://www.filegone.com/dq54

    You can install it by unzipping the file into your mods directory (will create a directory called "Antarctica"), then you can load the mod through the advanced menu in Civilization 4.

    For the UU I simply merged some scouts with some wolves to represent a dog sled, and did not reskin yet.. I know its ridiculous to have a bare-chested polar explorer, but what can I say? I am still undecided on which unit to actually skin to resemble a man in polar protective clothing

    I had a fear the early scout bonus might be too strong, so I'm open to feedback for sure

    Also, the color used for the player does not match the flag, but I know blue is coming up short for the used colors, and the standard bright orange was very appealing as it is in extreme use down there.. maybe I will change the flags background, and violate the conceptual flag

    edit: it will create the directory named Antarctica, I should not have cut and paste my own old post

    I think that McMurdo is a research station, so I think that is what he did.

    If you are still looking for some one to reskin to represent your Polar Explorer you might concider Riflemen or musketmen.

    Shame you can't make it so the civilization would be able to eke a living out of snow and ice. Somehow make them able to build and use the snow-covered nasty polar areas the AI so loves to colonize.

    They would be able to expand and thrive where no one else would even want to.

    Russia, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Finland and the State of Alaska would be able to as well. (I only say Alaska and not teh US because Alaskan's aren't like your commun Americans) Funny that it is really only from among those countries that there are Antartic Research stations or the means to get to them any time of year.

    I must say that is an idea not everyone would come up with...
    Still, I think there are much more usefull mods than this
    Even though this one looks pretty good
