Chechen Republic - Chechnya v0.68 by Shqype
Description:Chechnya as a playable civilization (with Agriculture and Mining starting technologies) -Featuring (2) late 20th century leaders of the Chechen Republic: --Djovkhar Dudaev (Aggressive, Expansive, favors Police State) --Aslan Maskhadov (Aggressive, Philosophical, favors Nationhood) -Names of cities within Chechnya (unfortunately a majority of these follow the Russian names and spelling as the real Chechen names are harder to find) -Unique Flag: Wolf which embodies Chechen pride and nationalism, along with 9 stars to symbolize teips (clans) Chechens are said to have descended from -Unique Unit: Rocket Propelled Grenadier (Chechen replacement for the SAM Infantry) --19 Strength, +100% vs. helicopter units -Civilopedia entries for: --Chechnya; http://www.chechnyawar.com/history/ --Djovkhar Dudaev; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dzhokhar_Dudaev --Aslan Maskhadov; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aslan_Maskhadov -With slight editing and additions by Shqype Known Issues: -The current flag decal for Chechnya was not made correctly, and thus will always have a black background (where transparency should be) --I altered the design to keep the wolf black (as it should be) in order to sidestep this issue -Currently there are no custom sounds for the Chechen civilization --They use the default Arabic sounds, because my own ignorance concluded Arabic sounded closest to their language, and I had no candidates for voice acting --Even the diplomatic music for the leaders is taken from Saladin -Unique Unit is not visually different than a SAM Infantry, the skin has not been altered in any way (any help is appreciated) Also, whenever Chechen names were available, I tried to use them as opposed to the Russian. For this reason the 1st leader, Djovkhar Dudaev, appears instead of the more popular Dzhokhar Dudayev. The first 2 cities are also Chechen, with the famous Chechen capital of Grozny renamed to "Djovkhar Ghaala" (in honor of Dudaev) and Urus Martan replaced with the Chechen "Halha-Marta." This was done to represent the Chechen people as best as possible, with errors being my own. Hopefully I will gain a better, more complete knowledge of Chechnya, preferably by coming across a Chechen, which will better aid me in tweaking this civ.
