Great, awesome mod. Thanks for updating it. Still love to play Civ5. This Mod is an fantastic addition to the game. Hope you continue working and updating it. A job well done!
Very nice mod which I've been using for a while now. Only thing that bugs me is the amount of turns it takes for most buildings/features to finish. A Totem takes 120 turns, i.e. 6000 years?
The above and Barbarians giving a low amount of 'culture' points, bar lions who give 9 points.
Extremely positive about the mod, overall.
