    it's here, on Post # 10 of this thread.

    IIRC, it has all of his buildings, blank spaces on the pcx sheet and the basic grass/coast/monument backgrounds.

    Just a minor correction, building...pcx's has only empty slots after last c3c building and blank icons are in separate file, there's a link to them though. But good idea, it could be a doable thing to make a building-pcx collection with all my buildings. People wouldn't have to play with all of them tiny files.

    Anyway, thanks Oz and El Justo, you're too kind... :blush: I guess I would feel a little embarrassed if this thread would be stickied...

    Someone ought to take control of the Drifts improvements & wonders library though.

    don't be silly my friend :p

    the first place i look when i add improvements to my scenarios is your threads (& RTF also). so i s'pose that my desire for this as a sticky is a bit selfish but the truth is is that your creations are awesome!

    STICKY! STICKY! STICKY!

    Not really in a hurry, the scen will reach beta stage at the earliest in a month.
    Also another wonder that i could use, although in reality it apperas immediately after the end of the Peloponnesian war, is the reform of the theban phalanx by Epaminondas, which lead to the sacred league, and theTheban hegemony. Flashes are not needed.

    I gotta little WWI request for you... an era-specific small/large wonder:

    A Great Zeppelin Hangar/Plant!

    Early...
    von Zeppelin's second Hangar (the first one was Water based and too small) - visible on the right: "Zeppelin Z-III":

    ----
    Later...
    Lakehurst (Main Hangar):


    "Toska" Military Warf (Two Halls):


    Graf Zeppelin (Frankfurt):

    (Tempelhof Main Hangar):


    Hindenburg (Frankfurt a. Main) and my favourite:



    Rio de Janeiro:

    ----
    Modern...

    You know, I rather like W.i.n.t.e.r.'s idea. It'd be a nice way to incorporate airships into a game and "regulate" the AI's production of them.

    LoL- yes, we have time (remind me to write to Firaxis bout keeping flics and pcx formats in civ4 ;)) and we will enjoy it more if we wait for it a bit- almost like unwrapping presents at X-mas. I'm sure that it will look better when you put time to it too :D

    Also write to firaxis not to release 3 identical versions of civ4, as it did with civ3, when civ3 vanilla could just as easily have 31 civs...

    I keep reading about CIV3 vanilla; is that an expansion that came after Conquest?

    I hope Firaxis keeps the same way of modding for CIV4.

    civ3 vanilla is the original Civilization 3 game w/out any of the add-ons like ptw or conquests.
