    Alright let's do a test. Try these two steps and test it after each step.

    1. Go to Documents\My Games\Beyond the Sword\CivilizationIV.ini and change:
    Code:
    ; Disable caching of file system (may slow initialization)
    DisableFileCaching = 0
    
    ; Disable caching of xml and file system (may slow initialization)
    DisableCaching = 0
    to:
    Code:
    ; Disable caching of file system (may slow initialization)
    DisableFileCaching = 1
    
    ; Disable caching of xml and file system (may slow initialization)
    DisableCaching = 1
    Then save.
    We're gonna see if the game is caching something.

    Test Shaka.

    If that doesn't work:
    2. Go to Documents\My Games\Beyond the Sword and make sure the CustomAssets folder is there and named CustomAssets.

    Then:
    (A) Put the Shaka Fix folder in CustomAssets\art\leaderheads so that you click CustomAssets -> Art -> Leaderheads -> ShakaFix and see lots of files after you extract it.
    (B) Put the Civ4ArtDefines_Leaderhead.xml under CustomAssets\xml\art

    And test Shaka now.

    Explaining what I did:

    Nothing is changed in ShakaFix. The idea is to get the game to reroute Shaka's art to a new folder in case something wacky is happening, so I changed it to point at a new folder. :D

    @topsecret

    Thank you so much for taking the time! Much appreciated.

    That is correct. No MODS installed. Completely fresh, first thing I did was to enter the game and look at Civilopedia.

    Then for Step 1

    '
    Disable caching of file system (may slow initialization)
    DisableFileCaching = 0
    '
    This was already at 1, the other one was at 0. But I changed the other one to 1 and tested Shaka. Still no wreath.
    Then I switched both to 0... Still nothing.

    Step 2

    I had to create the 'leaderheads' folder in the CustomAssets - art folder because it was not there.
    In any case, followed all the steps aaaaaand...

    Shaka is still bald as an eagle.
