Hi.
I was wondering if there was a mod out there, or anyone thought about a mod for deserts. I just hate myself desert being almost useless tiles.
I was thinking about the possibility of adding windmills to deserts ( kinda like in California) and maybe terraforming it to grassland or plains (should take something like 25 turns or more).
Ive tried adding windmills myself but keep getting errors and I must humbly realize Im not much of a modder :lol: so was hoping anyonre out there could help me or would think this was a good idea.

Just open CIV4ImprovementsInfos.xml and go to the "IMPROVEMENT_WINDMILL" section.
There should be somewhere "<TerrainMakesValids/>".
Exchange that with:
<TerrainMakesValids>
<TerrainMakesValid>
<TerrainType>TERRAIN_DESERT</TerrainType>
<bMakesValid>1</bMakesValid>
</TerrainMakesValid>
</TerrainMakesValids>

As for changing the time, i think you can't change missions right now.
Of course i might be wrong :-)
