    Looks great, but the Unique Ability looks overpowered. And the leader name should be shortened as well. XD Otherwise, great job!

    Thanks, the UA is overpowered you are right but that was the original from Hukkak Civpack, maybe i'll just keep the first part (All cities gain 10% science) or the second part with something else (don't know yet). Need some comments and proposals.

    I change the UA for +15%:c5science: in the :c5capital:Capital. Maybe it'll be better, tell me.

    +15% :c5science: in the :c5capital: Capital and + 1 :c5science: in jungle


    This way you can retain the UA name or change fervor to sthg more fitting like 'mysteries' or 'secrets' !

    The access to the forest is too fast, too powerful in early game, while access to strategic resources takes more time and making the bonus more interesting.

    Thanks! The next civilizations to add for a scenario "ancient civilizations of South America" could be: Hohokam, Chibcha and Inca. But creates all this takes a long time so I'll take a break!

    Maybe do the Zapotec instead of Inca, because of the DLC?

    I was not thinking to do the Zapotec (small territory, more like a city-state for civ5), but there are some informations that makes them interesting in their relationship with the Aztec. I have some ideas for the unique attitude for the Leader (unfortunately not the most glorious, but if you find a leaders list for them somewhere I'm interested), for the UB, but nothing for the UU.

    The Huari empire would make a cool one, but I don't know if they'd overlap with the Mapuch too much (can't remember if they were north or south of the Inca)

    Would it be OK if I borrowed your leaderhead and maps for my Mayan Civ mod? I'd credit you, of course.

    I can do better for your leaderhead. I can give you one I made but didn't keep for Maya.

    Age of Empires III has them with a 'Zapotec Lightning Warrior' - maybe replaces Swordsman, ignores terrain cost with +1 movement and move after attacking?

    To the image- that's awesome! I'd really appreciate that (the colors go really well with the red/yellow I've chosen, too).
    Just one question (which I kind of hate to ask):
    Could you convert it to .dds, and post it here? For some reason, the program I'm using won't convert at certain sizes (ones that aren't a factor of 2).
    Even if you can't, thanks, and I will credit you for it, of course!

    Wow, amazing work, Optik! Your new civs are by far my favourites; I think the leaderheads give them a lot of personality.

    Are you planning on doing any more African civs? I think the game could do with a few more of those.

    I agree, would you be willing to take new civ requests, if the background research (what we wanted for a leader, ability, UU, city list, etc.) was done beforehand?

    Thanks, I appreciate :). I have no plans for an African civilization for the moment. I'm also waiting to know which other civilizations will be added, perhaps with the next patch.


    I have one or two civilizations hold (Zapotec and Chibcha), but for now I stop. It takes time to collect informations, pictures and write all this, so if the project is actually nice why not, but not immediatly.

    Ok, not sure where else to post it, so here's my civ request:

    Civ: Costa Rica

    Leader: Jose Figueres Ferrer

    UA: Constitutionally Unarmed. Jungle Tiles provide a base of 3 food, 2 science, 1 production (& 1 gold?), and cities have +50% defense (+100% defense?), but all military units have only 1/2 combat strength

    UU: Fuerza Publica- replaces paratrooper, cannot paradrop, but is not affected by terrain, and has double movement points (4 instead of 2). Also, instead of the 1/2 combat caused by the UA, recieves double combat in Costa Rican territory (still affected by UA outside of that).

    UB: Bioparque- doubles yields (of all types) from jungle tiles and tiles with bonus resources.

    City list:
    San Jose (capital)
    Alajuela
    Cartago
    Heredia
    Pococi
    Puntarenas
    Liberia
    La Fortuna
    Desampardos
    San Carlos
    Perez Zeledon
    Goicoechea
    Limon
    La Union
    Tibas
    Alajuelita
    Turrialba
    San Ramon
    Grecia
    Curridabat
    Vazquez de Coronado
    Siquirres
    Paraiso
    Escazu
    Montes de Oca
    Moravia
    Aserri
    Sarapiqui
    Nicoya
    Santa Cruz- Possible removal
    Buenos Aires- Possible removal (since these two are prominent cities in other countries)
    Coto Brus
    Oreamuno
    Upala
    Naranjo
    San Rafael
    Corredores
    Guacimo
    Santo Domingo- (Possible removal, same as above)
    Santa Ana
    Golfito
    Talamanca

    AI Flavors- Go for tall empires, not deceptive, and completely non-aggresive (make Gandhi look like the neighborhood bully)
    Set to prefer diplo, the sci or cultural victories.

    Anything else required, or thoughts on the above?

    And yes, I know its a bizarre choice, but it seems cool for strategy and actual use.

    Ok, made second post for organizational reasons

    UA Reasoning- I'm trying to play off of Costa Rica's biodiversity and lack of a military, but the city strength is improved mainly so they don't get wiped out.

    UU Reasoning- It's supposed to be able to cope with the presumably prevalent jungle tiles, and serve mainly as a late-game defensive force.

    UB Reasoning- Again, playing off of biodiversity and ecotourism.

    AI Reasoning- Make Gandhi look like a warmonger. Make everyone else look like traitors. Make it small, and make sure the AI doesn't touch jungle tiles.

    Start Preferences: Forgot this above, but prefer jungle and hills (and river?), and avoid tundra, snow, and maybe forest. Basically, force them to the tropics of a map.

    What's missing?
