Better Civilization Icons

This mod replaces a number of civilization and city-state icons with more historically accurate or more aesthetically pleasing variations. While some of base game, vanilla icons are culturally relevant, they did not satisfy my desire for historical accuracy or unique look. No more bulls for Spain, way more bulls for Sumer, basmala in place of a generic palm for Arabia. Improved versions of vanilla icons for Poland, Japan and Russia and much more.

This mod will be updated when new DLC and expansion pack civilizations arrive, and when their symbols prove to be lacking.

Changed civilization icons:

- Arabia
- Australia (DLC, new colours)
- Brazil
- Germany
- Greece
- Japan
- Khmer (DLC)
- Macedon (DLC)
- Norway
- Nubia (DLC)
- Persia (DLC)
- Poland (DLC)
- Rome
- Russia
- Spain
- Sumer

Changed city-state icons:

- Armagh (DLC)
- Auckland (DLC)
- Bandar Brunei (DLC, Jakarta replacement)
- Brussels
- Jerusalem
- Kabul
- Lisbon

Additional features:
- civ icons for China and France with colours that better match their in-game colour scheme.
- improved colours for Indonesia
- support for a number of modded leaders of parent civilizations (eg. Japan, Russia, Rome, Spain etc.)

Can you please remake the chinese icon? In my opinion, this dragon would be look better if it is more like the Great Qing one.

Indonesian symbol has a lot of small parts that might look bad with certain colour combinations, but it doesn't look bad to me out of the box. I'll see how well it looks like after changing the colours first.

Not sure if you think Indonesia's icon needs a scale-up like Macedon's?
janboruta  [author] Oct 22 @ 9:07am 
Yeah, Indonesia's vanilla colour scheme is pretty horrible, that's the most needed change at the moment. I'll also include new symbols for the Khmer and Brunei city state (since it's just a renamed Jakarta with no art changes)

Sounds good to me. It's really difficult to read the dark blue text against the red currently. Thank you.
