This mod gives the Egyptians dark-skinned African units instead of white units as in the original, and also re-colors the Egyptian unique units to have darker skin. I did this because I felt that Egypt, as a Nilotic African civilization, should not have pale-complexioned units.
I have included a readme file; thou shalt follow its instructions, or Osiris shall show you no mercy (and you wouldn't have your mod, either).
UPDATE: I forgot to include a replacement file for the Egyptian UU "Elite Camel Warrior"; corrected it!
I enjoyed your mod as I agree with you. The old Eygptian assult infantry looked pasty and for an African civ this should not happen. Though there were some whites the nation was mostly black and I aprecieate you for fixing the mistake. The only reason I gave a four and not a 5 is that you just did a plain swapout changing the skin color.

Good idea if it hasn't been done. I was just thinking yesterday how bad the egyptians came across in the art work.

Thank you for the positive feedback.
"the turks should have it too,I think.

Hmm...I should do them too. They probably should receive Middle Eastern units like the Persians and Indians do.
Also, I don't understand why northern Amerindian tribes like the Lakota and Iroquois have darker-skinned units than the Mesoamerican nations, since Mesoamericans live in areas with higher UV and have darker skin.
