    I played it, and I think you did a good job. :)

    If you ever update this mod, you should add more civs, like nearby countries and the ones that aided Kuwait during the war. While not perfect, it's still a good mod.

    Thanks. You'd Like to expand the map? I didn't want to do that to focus on the invasion since I was thinking of making a gulf war mod down the road that would basically do what you are talking about.

    Maybe add the US and Russia as unplayable Civs, who will intervene with the promise of resources?

    Good suggestions. I'm not sure if that is possible if they are not on the map. In the meantime, take a look at the embassy buildings if you haven't already. They provide happiness in all cities in the same manner resources would.

    In addition, there is a Kuwaiti event on August 3 I believe where they offer assistance in the form of gold and an air unit promotion. You can also trade with Iran for resources. I definetly wanted to incorporate international diplomatic and logistic assistance that you suggested and tried my best two with those two features.

    Or maybe expand it into a Gulf War scenario with American troops on the Saudi border and Soviet ones...somewhere.

    An expanded version of this scenario would be fun to play. :)

    If you're not going to add more civilizations to the scenario at the moment, I don't think it would be a good idea to expand the map. The map already has a bunch of empty space, so maybe you could make a smaller map that focuses on the areas around Iraq, Iran, and Kuwait. You could remove a lot of the eastern part of the map that isn't being used. A smaller map would be nice for people who want to play shorter games.

    Also, do you plan on adding more techs, civics, buildings and wonders in the future? I can give you some ideas if you want me to.

    You made a pretty good scenario, and I would like to see other scenarios made by you in the future. :)

    Thanks for the positive feedback and I'll do my best to put out more mods time permitting.

    Yeah, the only way I could have enough Iraqi cities and the western flank of their army was to have that open space, which is basically desert to the west. It does look odd, but I actually cropped it down from what it was.

    Suggestions on additions are always welcomed. :)

    BTW I didn't get a chance to put the event in as a quest, but the core event still exists where Kuwait gets "assistance" whenever Kuwait City is held at the end of the day.

    hmm, should maybe add Israel and have Iraq gain gold with every scud they manage to drop in (sort of arab donations for prestige) ,and also with a possibility of retaliation in case of aggravation.

    also , some US/UK ships in the Gulf , just as target practice for Iraqi Exocets?

    Stolenrays I took a look at some of the units in the mod and opened them in the Nif software. Some of them just show as blank white models with no texture while others load fine with the textures. Provided though I didn't have them in the game directory but a separate folder outside of the Game.

    One example is the Su-25 Iraqi.

    Sometimes that messing up things when you open it up outside of the directory. The SU25 did have a bad texture link for its payload though. I will go through them all and double check them to be sure again.
