Your mod is becoming more and more impressive over time :)

1)Do the Jews speak Yiddish or Hebrew?

2)As much as I like the Amazons (I'm really amazed that they speak Fon BTW), don't you think their Decapitation ability is a bit OP? Imagine having a massive army of Grenadiers or Janissaries mauled by a group of Amazons in no time..

3)Also, while the Hussite units are really good (also amazed by the fact hey speak Czech), aren't they a little anachronistic (the Hussite Wars ended in the 15th cent.)? Personally, I think the french Hugeunots would be a more up-to-date choise.

Either way, your mod has great potential, keep up!

Thanks my friend :)
1. Jews speak Hebrew.

2. You are right about Decapitation being OP. I am already putting some few things to reduce the OPness of Decapitation ability : a) this is an ability with high ROF so that a player can only use it 1 or 2 times per game, b) the active time of the ability is only 20 seconds, c) once the ability is used the Dahomey Amazon won't be able to attack anything except infantry , d) moreover once the ability is activated the Dahomey Amazon can only kill a single unit with Decapitation attack & since they have a build limit of 15 (like other minor natives) this reduces the maximum number of decapitated enemies to 15 units.

3. The Bohemian Kingdom existed either independently before & during the Hussite Movement or as a vassal under other Empires afterwards (That is why I am making them under Minor Natives). So that makes your point valid only for the Hussite Units being out-of-date. However, it is only a little bit out-of-date :). The German War Wagon in the game is actually based on the historical Hussite War Wagon which existed in the same timeframe. I was thinking about your idea for French Hugeunots but France is already available as a major Civilization! Nevertheless, I am planning to do some European Maps & the Idea of having oppressed groups (like French Hugeunots ) as minor natives makes a lot of sense!
