I have the feeling that this'll have limited interest, but I made it and in case anyone else might want it, I'm giving it to the world.
Wales is one of the constituent members of the United Kingdom, one of the six Celtic Nations, and former province of England and later, Great Britain.
They had no representation in Rise of Nation. Admittedly, they are of relatively minor historical significance, but the British used only English and Scottish cities (no Welsh).
I wanted to be able to play as them for their campaigns against the Roman occupation, which were supposedly quite fierce.
Also, I felt like playing as them.
They will be replacing the Dutch.
They have the Power of Resistance, which is the exact same as the Dutch's Power of Commerce
Their Unique Units are the Dutch "Armed _____" line and the British Longbow line.
Their cities are all Welsh cities, and after the first few, is in random order.
Their leaders are all Welsh rebellion leaders from the age of Roman Occupation.
Copy the Wales folder into your Rise of Nations mod folder.

You can use it as long as you provide credit to me, Ijtzoi.
Can you add some more unique units the welsh are known for?

The British Longbow's proper name is actually the Welsh Longbow, so that very certainly should be there. The Armed Civ line is just built on the idea of resistance to the Romans.
Honestly, I don't know much about Welsh history (not Welsh, never even been to Wales), so I can't really think of anything they might be known for... they aren't really known for arming their merchants, but I felt that the British had something with their longbows so the Welsh should too.
If you could provide suggestions, feel free. I don't have 3dsmax, so I can't create models, but I'll do what I can with reskinning existing ones.

From the end of the readme:
"To use in your mod

So go ahead, as long as in its readme or somewhere you acknowledge I made this mod.
