Cultural Influences v0.3 2016-10-05

The cultural influences mod provides several modifications to the workings of
culture in the game. This is achieved by combining Bhruic's Culture Decay mod
with RogerBacon's Border Over Ocean mod, Chalid's Slower Expanding Culture
Borders mod and TheLopez's culture over trade route (idea by Aussie_Lurker).

4) Load the game.
5) Then play as normal.


-----Game Play-----
Spoiler :

- Trade routes between cities of two different civilizations have the chance of
transmitting their cultures to each other.

- When a city is lost (conquered, destroyed, etc.) it will send a "culture
shock" through the region, resulting in the loss of 50-75% of the culture
generated by the city. The culture shock makes it much easier for an Empire
to exert control over squares surrounding a city when it is conquered.

- Squares outside of an empire's borders will slowly lose culture over time.
The amount lost is dependant on the configuration of the mod but by default
they will lose 5% of the square's culture every turn, resulting in a
half-life of roughly 14 turns) makes it harder for an empire to regain lands
that they lost in the past.

- Depending on the configuration of the mod cities cultural borders will:
[TAB]- Extend out into ocean plots
[TAB]- Grow slower


-----Notes to Modmakers-----

If you want to use the Cultural Influences Mod in your mod I have tried to
make things as easy as possible for you. In the XML files modified sections
are enclosed by start and end tags.

In the Python files I have added # < Cultural Influences Start > and
# < Cultural Influences End > in all of the places that I have made
changes to the original files.
