Saibotlieh's Leaderhead Collection

After having made a certain number of leaderheads, I guess it's time to collect them all into one post, to be exactly this post. So far I managed to avoid too much work with these leaderheads by converting models from other games to Civ4, namely Atlantica Online, Mass Effect and Requiem: Memento Mori. Also some leaderheads are converted Poser models. Of course some minor to major adjustments were made by me to fit these models into Civ4, but I can make practically no claims upon the beauty of the artwork and the models.

List of Leaderheads (mostly in alphabetic order):

Thanks, I thought that I should design the first a bit different, too. Your image looks quite nice, but I was planning something different. Hopefully I'll have some time soon to test if it works like I want it to.

Thanks for the thought, but I guess I take responsibility for the design of the post myself. Also it doesn't took me that long and this layout should be easy to update.

On other news, I'm working on some units again at the moment, so most likely there will be no new leaders from me in the near future. But I'm pretty sure that those won't be my last leaderheads. ;)

It's not very complicated because the files are already in nif format. I've wrote some more about that in the old Female Ranger thread. But not all nifs can be opened with NifSkope, so test a few before starting troubleshooting. For example, the ...Atlantica\NChar3D\Char\WEAVER\WEAVER.nif should be openable.

I've uploaded my latest Leaderhead, Rani Mangammal of the Madurai Nayak kingdom.

Again I modified the AO model quite a bit here. The cloth are all made by me, using the shape of the original model with the addition of the saree.
The jewelry was also created by me, although I've gone a bit overboard with the polycount on these. They make up over a third of the complete polycount of the model. :mischief:

Enjoy! :)

I'll say one thing they are the cutest leaderheads ever posted on the Civ4 forums; keep up the good work!

Thanks guys. I don't know if cuteness is really a good attribute for a leader, but it definitely helps my motivation to make them. :)

Yes it is.

The cuteness of the leader is directly proportionate to the diplomatic attitude of the average player of the opposite gender (and at times the same gender) toward them.


Hence, the cute AI leaders that you make tend to have an above average chance of receiving gifts and tributes and being on the wining side in the average game. :)

At least in my observations.

Yep, cuteness is definitely an advatage :)
But your LHs are not just cute, they really suit in Civ IV very well
Maria is my favourite one, and now Mangammal is the second ;)

:think: Never looked at it in that way. I guess thats indeed a diplomatic factor one'll have to reckon with. And I think the AI can use all the help it can get. :D

Aye, Maria is my favourite, too. Movement, artwork, lightening, background, all fits quite well.

Maria has a great hairdo too. It looks nothing like a mullet but it would be accurate to say it has the same overall properties, "business in the front, and party in the back".

Great stuff as usual Saibot, as you know I was thinking of turning your Mangammal into Benazir Bhutto, so I went into the folder I have for your stuff and noticed that there was a "Dido" folder in there. So I looked at it, and it was my Dido, but it looks like you shadered it. Did you make a shadered version of my Dido? If you did I totally forgot, and haven't even looked at it in game or uploaded it.

Or am I just crazy.
