    So it's not obvious that everyone hates it
    IOSI, Royal Tenenbaum: if you want it down, make a poll about it ;)
    Let's see what the majority of the players want

    I very welcome any LH suggestions in the leaders thread
    While the LH is not perfect, IMO the new William is still much better than the previous one

    Saw you commited this recently
    I plan to make some updates to the fpk as well
    Will include your forests reskin and the Westminster Abbey when I do it, ok?

    I would rather avoid redownloading and reuploading the fpk files too many times
    Makes switching between revisions so much slower if they are changed too often
    So we should only do it when necessary, preferably when we have more changes

    Go ahead. I knew you were going to make some updates. So I intentionally didn't include them, so you can include them and we don't have to upload/download the whole file over and over again. ;)

    NOTE: The button of the new dense forest is a seperate file. You still have to merge it into the atlas.

    Another reason why I didn't include it is that I might make some minor changes to the new dense forest art.

    About the robinhood.mp3. I hardly ever have the sounds on, so I don't have an opinion about that. (Likely I never even heard that music:blush:)

    He was much like that actually, you can look him here: William the Conqueror

    But he could look a little less "I've been using strong drugs for the past 3 years". He needs a brighter expression IMO. But that's something only the creator of the LH (Novator?) should work on (or agree on someone doing it for him).

    Yeah, he just looks messed up for some reason.

    This is why democracy sucks. If we're to waste everybody's time, it should be on more important things.

    I got rid of that song permanently for myself. So I don't care anymore.

    Re: William, I think he looks fine. Invading England's got to make a man loose some sleep.

    Why is a quick vote on a poll counts as wasting time? :mischief:
    And for me, it's only one minute to remove that song if it's unwelcomed
    I really don't mind either way

    Nice buttons Merijn!
    The one for Beatrice got the wrong name though, and now her BG looks hilarious :D
    She is a little self-centered, you say? :mischief:
    Will fix it in a couple minutes

    Btw, what do you think about backgrounds?
    The ones I'm unstatisfied with:
    George III, Simeon, Basil II, Margaret, Yaqub al_Mansur, Abd-ar-Rahman, Robert the Bruce, Otto I, Ferdinand III
    Do you guys have any good idea for them?

    Basil II in SoI uses the background of Justinian.

    Abd ar Rahman and Yakub al Mansour could swap BG.

    Otto I could use the BG of vanilla Charlemagne.

    Robert the Bruce: Edinburgh Castle perhaps?

    Updated the list:
    George III - doesn't look good IMO, buildings are blurry, lights are strange
    Simeon - currently a serbian temple
    Basil II - currently a bulgarian temple, this BG should go the Simeon
    Margaret - would prefer something a little bit more urban, connected to the Kalmar Union
    Yaqub al_Mansur - have a cordoban bg currently, can possibly get Rahman's, although an interior BG would probably be better
    Abd-ar-Rahman - should probably get Mansur's BG
    Mohammed ibn Nasr - looks a little too insignificant to me. can possibly get Rahman's
    Robert the Bruce - something more scottish
    Otto I - currently an orthodox cathedral in the BG
    Ferdinand III - something a little brighter
    Alexander Nevsky - something more urban, tied to Novgorod
    Harun al-Rashid - he should also get something more impressive
    Ismail ibn Sharif - currently has Mali/Songhai mud mosques
    Michael VIII Palaiologos and Justinian currently have the same background
    Hermann von Salza and Isabella also shares a background
    Philip Augustus - drawing as a BG

    Any others you guys would like to change?

    EDIT: Already done:
    Simeon
    Isabella
    Yaqub al-Mansur
    Mohammed ibn Nasr
    George III
    Robert the Bruce
    Gustav Vasa
    Otto I
    Margaret
    Alexander Nevsky
    Basil II
    Michael VIII Palaiologos
    Philip Augustus
    Ismail ibn Sharif
    minor updates to Rurik and Abd-ar-Rahman, those are probably also fine now

    maybe:
    Ferdinand III
    Harun al-Rashid
    Bela III
    Ivan Asen
    Saladin

    Basil II's background could be the Boukoleon Palace. Would fit with him founding the Varangian Guard who were reportedly garrisoned there.

    Probably fitting
    Also the Blachernae Palace for Michael, now that I read about it:
    "After the recapture of the city by Michael VIII Palaiologos, however, the palace, along with the entire Great Palace complex, was gradually abandoned in favour of the Blachernae Palace."

    Need some good quality pics though

    Also, Merijn, the Edingurgh castle looks good
    But I'm not entirely statisfied with the the BG swap, especially because the LH for Yaqub have so much light
    Will play around with those BGs a little more

    Played around in gimp and nifskope a couple hours tonight
    Mostly concentrated on buildings as you can see :)




    Spoiler :

    Aachen Cathedral - Otto I
    Edinburgh Castle - Robert the Bruce
    Tower of London - George III
    Kalmar Castle - Margaret
    Roggeborgen in Strangnas - Gustav Vasa
    Walls of Novgorod / Novgorod Kremlin - Alexander Nevsky
    cfc_Aachen_Cathedral.jpg cfc_Edinburgh_Castle.jpg cfc_Tower_London.jpg cfc_Kalmar_Castle.jpg cfc_Roggeborgen_Strangnas.jpg cfc_Novgorod_Kremlin.jpg

    I know backgrounds are a very minor thing, especially since most of them are barely seen most of the time
    Still fairly pleased with the result, so go and check the new leaderscreens :)

    Merijn, if you have some time, can you add a new button for Otto I and Mstislav I?

    No problem. I'm about to upload my current changes. I will do this after that and then it's about time to release 1.3.

    EDIT: I already changed the button of Mtislav a while ago. I think it doesn't show in the pedia because the game loads from the FPK instead of the dds file.
    EDIT2: I see I named the folder wrong back than. Will be fixed.

    Merijn, if you have time, can you add a button for James IV?
    And maybe some civilopedia entries to both him and Johan de Witt?

    Once again, some more buttons are needed:
    (don't worry, no more LH updates for a while :))
    New button: Bohdan Khmelnytsky (while the current button looks awesome, it's a totally different style, and I would rather keep things consistent)
    Button for James I and John II

    Some more civilopedia entries would be great too, if you have some time for it:
    Civilopedia entry for John II
    Civilopedia entry for most new units

    I dislike our icon for Protestantism.
    Too different in style compared to the other 2 christian ones.
    Does anyone have a better suggestion for it?

    Protestantism - purple cross
