    Thanks. :worship:

    I don't know when I finish this version. (I expect next weekend, but it depends on my free time and suggestions/help from others)

    I have to options for the Incan Sun Temple which you can choose from:

    1. Observatory with +1:food: and 15% foodstorage.

    2. Observatory which provides fresh water. (I know it's possible, but I don't know if I can merge it in)

    Do you mean the one on post 52? Currently, I use the other one. But if most people vote for this one, I'll change it.

    The latter building spews water, so based on that it might be more appropriate for a well.

    I wish more people WOULD vote on it, though. Then again, maybe you should complete the modmod using your own judgment and start correcting things once it receives more attention.

    Oh, and Leoreth? Could you send me the DLL file too when you're ready with it?

    Sure. But as it looks it'll take some time until I can start.

    I'm in no hurry. I've been working on a project like this from ages ago and I'm still missing the graphics for half of them.

    I prefer the second effect and the second image is more appropriate to the effect.

    I'm sorry, but I will go for the 1st option. I wanted to copy the code from the ExtremeMod, but when I tested it, I found out it didn't work as I expected. It only allows you to build farms around the city, not the +2 :health: for fresh water. This makes the building useless for RFC. It would only add +1:food: in Cuzco (if it's found on the spawning spot). I don't think that is a good UB. And I think the first art (of post 52) suits better for that power.

    Very well. How soon do you think you can finish the rest of the UBs?

    I'm almost done. I only need the art and powers of the Persian Ab Anbar and a new power for the Portugese Explorers House. (Or a totally different building.) The one I have know is good enough for the mod, but it certainly can be improved.

    EDIT: I can launch the new version if I get the DLL files from Leoreth.

    @ Leoreth

    Is it possible that I can change the features of the buildings (only XML things) after you translated them in DLL? If so, here is the consts.py .

    Another question:
    I want to create a patch that allows both modcomps in one game. Do you need to make an extra translation into DLL?

    Of course you can. The only thing the DLL needs to know is how many buildings you are (so adding another one would mess things up again). It's only one variable really.

    Does this mean that if I change a 2nd UB, but I keep the same number of buildings, the code still works?

    That's very nice! (Because I might change some 2nd UB's)

    A question to all

    I saw in the History rewritten mod a nice idea that could be a modmod (like those in the thread).
    When I suggested the idea for these modcomp, I also suggested the UNW (Unique National Wonder) modcomp. But I didn't include them, because they are too unbalanced. No I've downloaded HS, I saw a good alternative for this UNW modcomp. In HS, all UNW doesn't add anything extra, but when you build them, you'll get a golden age.

    So my question is:
    Should I make another modcomp with this idea, or do you think it isn't worth it?

    What I would really like to see are not necessarily unique national wonders, but civilization specific national wonders.

    So that instead of a generic national wonder like "National Gallery" we would have the Louvre for France, the Hermitage for Russia, the Museum of Modern Arts for America, the Pergamon Museum for Germany etc.

    I would really love to see something like this! :)

    That would be nice too, but (IMO) much harder to do, because their are hardly any art files etc. aviable.

    For me it'd suffice to see the names and (maybe) buttons to be dynamic.
