**ActualQuotes diplomacy text** for Civ4, ver. 1.1 By Willowmound
Extract to: …CustomAssets\XML\Text -or- To add to a specific mod: …Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Mods\[YourMod]\Assets\XML\Text This mod replaces the original leader-specific diplomacy text with text based around things these leaders' real-life counterparts actually said –- some famous quotes, and some not so famous. *Note that the one quote used for Huayna Capac was in fact uttered by his son, Inca Atahuallpa, to Fray Wincente Valverde. *Most quotes for Asoka are taken from "The Edicts of King Ashoka", a collection of proclamations concerned mainly with social reform, and that apparently were written in Asoka's own words. *Most quotes for Qin Shi Huang are taken from a stone inscription on Mount Langya set up to praise Qin and make his will clear. As few direct quotes exist, this was the second best thing. *The few quotes used for Cyrus are Biblical, as no other source claiming to have his exact words exist. The Bible quotes are probably mostly fictiton too, but in this context better than nothing. *All other leaders' quotes are from various sources around the net, and all are well known, even if some may be apocryphal. *Leaders for whom no quotes have been found, and whose specific text has subsequently NOT been altered include: - Montezuma - Mansa Musa - Hatshepsut
