    Well, its not a huge mod or anything but I was just messing around with the files to see whats possible and came up with this. Hopefully in the future more mods will come on a larger scale :)

    Basically its Julius Caesar with brown hair and less wrinkles. Took about a grand total of 5 minutes (I've had some modding experiance with Pirates! so that sped up the process)

    Mabey someone will find use for it :D enjoy.

    To use, (assuming you've already unpacked your Art0.FPK- if not, go here and scroll to the bottom for instructions) just place the two files in your 'Julius Caesar' leaderhead folder. My path is: D:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Assets\Art\leaderheads\julius_caesar

    Very smooth, Corn Shucker. I haven't decided yet whether I'll switch them, but it looks nice.

    But are you sure that there is no problem of copyright with firaxis ?
    I remember that it was the question with the modification of units in CIV III...

    Nice. :cool: Could you darken his skin a little? He still looks like he came out a nursing home.

    Mabey I'm just cant read-but I dont think what you wrote makes any sence? lol Mabey you could elaborate- I think you're saying that it needed to be done, but could have been done better. What would you suggest to be changed? How could it be "done better"?

    Caesar was blonde, so you might consider doing that. Also, is there any way to make him less skinny, or give him a tunic in addition to the toga? He looks like Cato as he originally is...

    I doubt it, so long as he's not trying to sell it. After all, the game is designed to be moddable-going so far as to give modders the code for the game. If they're going to let us mod that much, I doubt they'd quibble over leader heads.

    Regardless of whether you intend to sell it or not there is a copyright issue with finished unit graphics... however, I emphasize the word FINISHED. The skin is useless without the .nif file, and the nif file is largely useless without Civ4...

    The real problem with Civ3 was including PTW or C3C graphics. People with just vanilla could still use them without having the XPs.

    What about giving Caesar full armour and a nice Roman helmet. He was a great general after all.

    Caesar isn't an aggressive leader in this game. So he doesn't reflect such... (I know, it's weird)

    I have not played Civ IV yet and it may be awhile because the graphics do not impress me as much as what I've read about some of the other changes. The leaderheads definitely have room for improvement, as you have demonstrated, Corn Shucker. It's just a shame they chose to make the head so out of proportion to the body.

    Hrafnkell, believe me in the game the LHs have a completely different feel from the screenshots.

    Nice work! I think Alexander needs one of these too, as he died at the age of 33!

    I agree about Alexander. Also could you update this to work with rufus's leader changes, he made to Caesar(new senator toga), and make it like the screenshot you posted in the thread.
