I hope this isn't terribly taboo; this thread is not meant to be offensive, but rather to support more representation.

That said, is it just me, or could we use some more genetic diversity in Western Sub-Saharan Africa? The characters' genetics make them all look East African or even like Europeans with darker skin. We should be seeing some really dark skin around Sudan and defintely more diversity in facial features.

I agree with you. I don’t think this is taboo to talk about, it’s not racist, it’s the opposite if anything. More skin tones and facial features would be amazing. Can’t wait for the inevitable sub-saharan flavour pack, hopefully it will be that and much more

I am sure they want to make "portrait" mods(what do we call them now? model mods?) so I am not dissappointed

Just finished a run there. (Hey everyone, check out how progressive I am! Pls upvote) I didn't notice lack of variety in the characters there any more than any european game I've played. All my rulers looked quite distinct. It seems more universal problem, rather than african one, which I'm sure Paradox will aim to monetize soon.
