    By replacing the dynamic LH art with static images, you can reduce the memory usage a lot.

    Download here
    Unzip it in the DoC folder.
    Works with all versions.

    NOTE: I don't have images yet for Dharmasetu, Muhammad ibn Tughluq and Suryavarman yet. They have placeholder images. Please suggest replacement images.

    I would suggest using historical portraits etc. I could imagine people playing with that mod instead of the usual LHs even without performance considerations.

    Is there a specific size the images need to be?

    Maybe it doesn't always have to be contemporary. I would prefer baroque era or later paintings of historical figures from previous eras actually.

    At least 512x512. Bigger images can be scaled down. And it doesn't need to be a square. I can cut edges of if needed.

    I got permission to use the static LH from Realism Invictus. They have a lot of nice static images.

    who told you it would significantly increase performance? I asked edead about it and he told me it would not make much difference. (not knocking the idea, actually if it does increase performance I will make one for my mod as well)

    I don't think it will improve performance in terms of game speed, but it can help people who experience crashes because of insufficient memory.

    I got a lot of LH art from Realism Invictus. I don't have a static image yet for:

    Dharmasetu
    Muhammad ibn Tugluq
    Suryavarman II

    Could you check which of the leaders in the list above have a LH in C2C?

    Could you post some example pictures? I'd like to see what they look like.

    I think it's easier if you download it. It's completely modular. And you can see them all.

    (To revert, simply delete Static LH folder in the the module folder and the Static LH folder in the art folder.)

    Is this for 1.12 or SVN?

    Both.

    It should even work with older versions.

    Just install it and watch them in the civilopedia. This way, you have access to all images and I don't need to make a printscreen of every LH.
