Tired of seeing Benjamin Franklin born in the Mongol kingdom, and Shakespeare born in the Incan kingdom? I am, too! What this mod should attempt to do is make Great People "civ specific", or "ethnic specific" so that certain names of Great People will only be born to certain civs. Let's use the Great Engineer as an example... Currently in the XML file ther is one Great Engineer, with all the different names for the GE's in a list. The computer selects the name of the great person at the top of the list and works it's way down. All civs share this list. With this mod, there would need to be a Great Engineer for each civ, sort of like a UU, *or* for each ethnic division (Asian, European, Arab, etc). They would be generated the same way, so everybody still has the exact same chances of generating a Great Person as with the vanilla version... the only difference is, when a GP is actually generated, the computer will generate the GP for that specific civ, which will have it's own unique name listing for the Great People. Following me so far? I'm not looking at the XML right now, but I would guess that this could be accomplished by simply copy and pasting the GP tags in the XML file to create duplicates, then just changing the names listed in the GP tags, and coding them to be civ specific, like a UU. Repeat the process until every civ or ethnicity has their own GP's. Now... While I'm not that proficient with XML, Python, or SDK... I do have plenty of great ideas. I'm willing to give this a shot and see what happens. If I can't get the job done, if any of you good modders that read this would like to take over the idea, I'm game. Just give me credit for the original concept. For me to do this.... What I'd need help with are names. Names of real-life Great People from each of the civs represented in the game for all categories. So I would need names for Great Engineers, Great Artists, Great Generals, etc for each civ. Coming up with names for civs like the Americans, Germans, English are easy... the hard part is compiling GP names for civs like the Zulu, Mongolians, etc. A great Zulu Artist doesn't come to mind! This is where I think "ethnic" GP would be more feasable than "UU" style GP. It would allow for more generalizing, making the job much easier. If you think this is a worthwhile project, shoot me some ideas.
