    I've now corrrected this. 3 little lines missing and the Empire's financial might was descimated!

    I've left the Unique Builing unchaged as this was yet another "English" trait that was taken from British history.

    I've also very unproffessionally not updated the version number.

    OK, since the Scots seem to be here in abundance, I contemplated having Glasgow higher in the City List than Edinburgh. It's a bigger city and in many ways more important to the British economy. That said, Edinburgh is the capital and I felt it maybe wrong to ignore that fact. Any thoughts?


    Hmm.. new World-Wonder - Old Firm Derby... maybe not.

    my opinion. leave Edinburgh top of the "Scottish list", it may be smaller but it's the Capital.

    Old Firm heh, a commerce boost to the city it's in but +1 disgruntled citizen? :p Despite what people say, it's not as bad as the media makes out, especially when you think of places like Turkey and Argentina (no offence to either country)

    Just spotted the Mod in the database and downloaded right away, and as a weegie (Glaswegian to everyone else) I agree that Edinburgh should come before Glasgow as it is our capital afterall (even if its not as important :mischief: ) but seriously, cheers for making this Mod, always thought that it should be Great Britain instead of England also but kinda understand Firaxis point of view too. Will play tomorrow and let you know my thoughts.

    P.S. just realized my sig might need explaining, im pro-Scottish not anti-English. :)

    Is Churchill the leader of this faction? I dislike the static LHs, and I thought I saw Lloyd George in one of those screenshots. If Churchill isnt an option, how do I put him in?

    Churchill and Victoria are both in, unchanged from the England Civ. Lloyd George, Richard The Lionheart, James Stuart, and Malcom III are all in as static leaderheads. I know what you mean about them not being as good, but I prefer them to a leaderhead that doesn't look like the person.

    I think now really should be the time to mention this. A poll was done recently to find the 'best Prime Minister' and guess who came top?

    Churchill? nope
    Lloyd George? nope

    .
    ..
    ...
    ....
    ...
    ..
    .

    Baroness Margaret Thatcher.
    Favourite PM's

    Yes, Maggie was voted joint top along with Clement Attlee as the Best Prime Ministers.

    So come on, lets have a stop to this Chruchill/Lloyd George debate, lets scrap that and get a Maggie leaderhead going. Come on, who wouldn't want to play as the 'Iron Lady'

    Yeah no worries. I wanted the mod to emphasise unity and her blatent anti-Scottish bias is reason enough not to include her. Who did they survey? The young conservatives convention????
