    Comment:
    Just an FYI, if you have a civilization mod and would like me to include it instead of sticking the third unique in your mod(thus possibly ending up with your civ being the only one in a game with a third unique) just let me know(you can either give me the entire XML file for the Unique or just give me a concept or leave it entirely to me I'm good with any of them.), this also goes for anyone who finds a civilization mod they really like just give me the CIVILIZATION_NAME or at least point me to the exact name of the mod and I'll try to include it.
