    It seems like they'd make a Portuguese one, given the population of Brazil...

    There is a mod which creates a Chinese language version of Civ, maybe you could do a Portuguese one?

    Alright. Sorry for my inactivity, I've been busy with RL stuff (that I won't have to deal with after this month). In light of the announcement of the expansion, we'll be waiting until then, to see what changes are made to the game and to modding.

    With Civ's permission, I present two civs

    Civ: Finland
    Leader: Mannerheim
    UA: Tundra Warriors: Tundra and Snow provide two food, snow does give attack penalty, and +50% defence when on snow or tundra in own territory
    UU1: Hakkapeliitta (Replaces Lancer) -2 attack, but may attack twice per turn (Does not get to move after second attack)
    UU2: Motti (Replaces Infantry) -25% cost, +33% flanking bonus

    Civ: CSA
    Leader: Jefferson Davis
    UA: Agrarian Economy: Farms and plantations provide 1 gold each
    UU1: Stonewall Brigade (Replaces Rifleman) +50% attack and defence when in own territory
    UU2: Casemate (Replaces Ironclad) Doesn't require coal, +2 movement

    As stated before, the CSA will not be added.

    Great ideas, though!

    Could it be called just "Colombia"? I say this because never has an entity called "Gran Colombia" existed, what happened is that parts of Colombia eventually became independent.

    Other civilizations in the game have gained and lost territory, and a different name isn't used on them just due to those territorial changes (for instance, a Rome that encompasses just Italy is just as much a "Rome" as the whole later empire).

    This would also allow use of unique units or buildings of a greater portion of Colombian history.

    Yes, probably. IIRC most of the graphical engine was inaccessible with Civ4's DLL.

    While that is true (as I have pointed out), and the civ may include later units and buildings, the emphasis is placed on the Colombia the Bolivar led.
    On the civ list, it will likely be called Colombia, despite what the map says.

    Here's a finn's (me) own version of the Unique Ability.

    +1 :c5culture: Culture from each worked Forest and Lake. Receive a free :c5science: Technology and a :c5culture: Social Policy when Education is discovered.

    (By the way, only Lapland has tundra ;))

    Interesting idea. A free tech AND social policy might be overpowered, though.

    I wouldn't say so. Education comes a bit late, and the main bonus is weak and long-term, so it needs a powerful short-term filler.

    May I suggest a better UA/UB for Brazil? it can be something like that:

    UA: Ordem e Progresso : "We love the King day" events are +50% longer and no loss of Golden age Points and less penalties on the strenght of units with Unhapiness .

    About their UU,it can be the "Independence Dragoons",which would replace Lancers,but it wouldn't have their defense penalty . For UB,it can be something like this:


    Unique Building: Sambodrome. Replaces Opera house . Along with the 4 :c5culture: it also gives +1 :c5culture: and +1 :c5happy: for each luxury resource worked by the city during "WLTKD" events

    The idea here is to create a synergy between the UB and the UA in this case and Sambodrome would work much better than "Soccer stadium" for Brazil's UB . What do you think?

    I think it sounds rather OP myself. And the UA (No points lost) is impossible AFAIK
