Once it is released, do you think Ottomans should be included here?

Probably not. Too much of a work for a civ who fits the Euro culture, as well.

Happy New Year Christos. I love your guys work,  I been playing this mod longer than I been alive.  :)    I understand the too much of a work factor.  However WOL has always been about change compared to the original game.  The Ottomans ethnically and geographically fit the Middle Eastern Culture like a perfect suit. I think they should be part of that culture in a future patch. But like you said its a lot of work and its easy for me to suggest without doing any of the work.

Note that even in its worst days Ottomans were known as "sick man of EUROPE" not Asia or middle east. They were always seen as Europe. From its birth to its death

             Yet Turkey is located in the middle east, not europe

According to some definitions. It's often classified as part of Europe, though. Not to mention thematically it fits much better in Europe.

Seems most of Turkey is in Asia and a small part of it is considered Europe but they aren't part of the EU. There are many European civs and only a few Middle Eastern Civs in the making so I thought it be cool to include them in there but its all good either way
