    Improvements
    ------------

    Bonus classes
    -------------
    New classes should help AI players and make them value more resources as they want resources from all bonus classes, General class had many resources so AI did not value them much if they already had access to 1 or more of those resources. Adding more classes also affects Mapgenerator because it decides to place resources based on what bonus class they belong to and same type resources usually aren't close to each other. This should help to problem where maps were generated without some important resources.

    - Added: Luxury, Unique 8 (=minimum range between this type resources)
    - Added: Fuel, unique 6
    - Added: Manufactured, unique 0 (these don't appear on maps, produced by industry)

    Config

If modular civ is added without merging its first contact info to main mod, the mod picks each time random first contact text for that civ.
