Better Unique Improvements 1.2

Now you might actually want to build them

  1. Gilgasmash
    I've found myself basically never building unique improvements. Besides Stepwells, they feel weak compared to basic improvements. This mod aims to fix that, making them a civilization defining bonus.

    Gilgamesh can now fall back on strong culture and science with rivers full of Ziggurats, and Catherine can enjoy a strong Nobility with judicious placements of Châteaux.

    Suggestions welcome.
    Known issue: Civilopedia not updated correctly. Updating descriptions is glitchy, but the changes work perfectly otherwise.

    Installation: As usual, extract to Document/My Games/Civ6/Mods.
