    What if you could make City-States fight all your wars for you?
    What if spies could open the gates of enemy cities to let you in?

    Sounds like a good UA for an Odysseus-led Civ ;)

    PS: Having all the Civs that try to denounce him say "Nobody is a threat!" would be pretty funny, too.

    Wuf!wuf! I mean....
    Zimbabwe should be focused on various yields from trade routes(production and food from international trade routes and gold from domestic ones). It also should have references to the great Zimbabwe(effects: east India company, only it also gives food and production in addition to the gold, and massively increases city strength).
    Also, something that gives culture. Perhaps the UA.

    The only reason that I don't want culture is because it'd be culture/trade like Afghanistan. Though I won't actually complain until we actualy make a design.

    I think we have 4 options for Great Zimbabwe:
    Unique national wonder like Natan said, which would be new among CL, MC, PG and JFD civs
    Integrated into the UA
    A generic UB, so it'd be builder everywhere but weaker.
    Or we could leave it out entirely because it should be a Wonder.

    What about a UA that made spies not have to flee cities you're at war with... and then you get a bonus when fighting cities with your spy in them...

    This is what i've made for Monomotapa.
    Spoiler :


    All my first civs had a Unique Wonder, but several civfanatics told me it was a bad choice. now i'm reworking them one by one to remove this unique wonders.

    Zimbabwe has to be focus on Gold too. They are known for their exchanges of gold against Glas Pearls through the coastal city of Sofala. You could also use the famous golden Rhino as a great work :)

    What are the odds of Afghanistan receiving YNAEMP compatibility any time soon?

    Good, good. Can't imagine playing a 60-civ YNAEMP game without any of the fantastic CL civs. Pretty much all of them are mainstays in my games (with the exception of Mexico, as they overlap with the Aztecs and it's not pretty).

    For the record, this is my preferred option.

    I think the inclusion of a "Zimbabwe" as a Unique Building shouldn't really impact the inclusion of Great Zimbabwe as a Wonder elsewhere. However, I do maintain that the Zimbabwean UU should be non-Rhodesian, but I like the idea of a Selous Scout-based Decision.

    The same could be said for Egypt and the Pyramids. Great Zimbabwe is deserving of Wonder status on a World stage. But as Rawsasquatch said, having a generic zimbabwe as a UB, with the Great Zimbabwe as World Wonder, would be acceptable to me.

    Great Zimbabwe could be a CulDiv wonder for the Bantu. Totalitarian has The Motherland Calls, after all.

    There's a 60 civ DLL somewhere or other in the YNAEMP thread.
