Just trying the mod out for the first time and liking it. However it runs really slow on my computer. On a huge map with 25 civs and at like 20 turns its taking 2 min. Didn't notice this so early with mods like RFC and C2C, just wondering if its a known thing.
If it's possible, sure. I don't know anything about the code, just that techs aren't available as tribute demands. It's still a "gamey" strategy as it's pretty easy to outmaneuver even a more advanced AI (in warfare), as long as they don't have an absolutely overwhelming numerical advantage.
