New Civ ideas

It seems to be part of Tamil martial arts, to practice almost naked.

Though in reality they would probably wear at least padded gambeson, or would be shredded by arrow barrages.

LoL all three pictures you posted are from Malayalam Martial Arts (Kalaripayattu), not Tamil.
A simple google search of those images will give you.

AoE3 Indians were themed after rebels and revolt against the British Raj.
Nothing says “righteous revolt” more than a scrawny looking guy with a sword and a shield, that looks like he should have never stepped foot into an actual battle.

You can find examples of such “de-clothed” figures in every revolution, like Lady Liberty in the French Revolution or the Hardenned Proletarian is Soviet posters.
It is supposed to instill empathy for them, and make them look like the downtrodden fighting a monstruous oppressor.

The one thing I hope if there’s going to be official civ modding support in the future that it won’t work with specific data sets but more like how other strategy games like Civilization do it aka you can have different additional civs from different creators in the same game and don’t have to choose between them.

It would still be way better if at least some of them would come officially in the game, because modding all those graphics, especially new architecture sets and the destruction graphics will get extremely time consuming for the graphic modding community if they bother create them which isn’t guaranteed.

Also getting unique voice lines isn’t easy either. Some of them are already in other Age games which might ease the task though.

Ok ill change after i get some infos about these

i have already added a tech like this to kannadigas called “Naymankara”

I actually wanted to add the units in you dp… it looked bad ■■■ but it was way out of aoe 2 era… i think the name of the weapon is “kandithukwa”

Duty system is the english term sinhaleese word is rajakari kramaya.

You mean in my avatar pic? Its called a kodituwakkuwa(flag gun,grasshopper cannon) locally made gun in the 16th century.

something to keep in mind if you are thinking of the original bonuses

Looks like you covered most of the bases, however I would suggest more Finno-Ugric civs which controlled a lot of area in the middle ages. Suomi?

Maybe also the Ainu.

Finnish would make good civi choice they are not vikings or slaves.

Only one of the Ugric cultures is in the game: Magyars, Finns will be a good idea to cover the rest of the groups from the culture. But the problem is they are far less influencial than a lot of civs that remain to be covered.
