Ya you keep laughing as my army of Dikes and Indiamen crush you!
I like Williams early and middle era diplomacy music. I especially like the middle-era music because it reminds me of windmills and fields of Tulips.....
But I don't like Williams late era music. Yes, it does sound like circus music- I think a better way of putting it is "clown music"- and it gives me a mental image of silly clowns in big shoes walking down a street in a mardi gras. It is not very dignified....
Empire of furniture?
Surely you've heard of the great Ottoman Empire.
Known for furniture and... slaughtering innocents. Mainly known for the former. Very nice, 90% Armenian footrests.
I thought he was talking about the Ikea empire.
Tried that, suddenly got nuked to "Where Is My Mind?"
...Oh god that was a lame reference.
I don't really like the music either.
And another thing: why couldn't they give him a cool hat, like that Portugese guy?
Portugese hat = pimp.
You people are all insane. Never once did I think of clowns or circuses when talking to Willem. After reading this, on the other hand... Now you've ruined the man!
You're right, street organs are still common over here.
The music of Willem the Oranje Clown reminds me of shopping on a sunny saturday afternoon. I'm amused by this choice, very typical, though I agree it's not very "threatening " but then again, that's also typically dutch
This is funny music.
I think he's the spitting image of the evil clown king (the insane one) from the fall from heaven mod, fall from heaven II. I was playing FFH prior to BtS coming out, and when I saw Willem's image, the insane clown imediately came to mind, lol!
All kidding aside, the Dutch are not to be trifled with!
I thought I was the only one
You did NOT just make a Golden Saucer reference!!!
I put that song on my MP3 player and go to the gym, and while im working out looking at all the pissed off roid dudes, I think to myself "these guys would just not be able to understand me listening to this music right now!"
STUCK IN MY HEAD NOW
Haha.. I couldn't agree more about Willem van Oranje's diplomatic music, but; I do have to admit that, the first time I heard it, it sounded awfully familiar.. It really is a typical Dutch tune..
I'm currently working on a small mod that'll give you either the 'Piet Heyn' march (very famous over here) and / or 'Het Wilhelmus' (the national anthem).. Still working on it, but I'll let you guys know when I'm finished with it.. (if you really want to replace it that is)
Are there so many clowns in the Nerthelands ?
(I always thought most of our world leaders were clowns anyway)
lionheart.... what no Van der Valk mod ?
Your dikes crush people? That sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen...
Well, I just finished the mod and I think it sounds pretty good.. I'm not too sure about the early music, but it definitely does sound somewhat threatening and also pretty barbaric (and it still sounds like 'Het Wilhelmus')..
Here's the description at the download:

Thank you! Even though I have no Dutch heritage in me whatsoever, unless you count William the Conqueror in that lineage...I love playing the Dutch, and this will help me stare down those Evil Scandinavian pigdogs with a straight face, lol!
I love it. Makes me happy. Now on my Ipod.
