    Hi.
    I was wondering if there was a mod out there, or anyone thought about a mod for deserts. I just hate myself desert being almost useless tiles.
    I was thinking about the possibility of adding windmills to deserts ( kinda like in California) and maybe terraforming it to grassland or plains (should take something like 25 turns or more).
    Ive tried adding windmills myself but keep getting errors and I must humbly realize Im not much of a modder :lol: so was hoping anyonre out there could help me or would think this was a good idea.

    Just open CIV4ImprovementsInfos.xml and go to the "IMPROVEMENT_WINDMILL" section.
    There should be somewhere "<TerrainMakesValids/>".
    Exchange that with:
    Code:
    <TerrainMakesValids>
    	<TerrainMakesValid>
    		<TerrainType>TERRAIN_DESERT</TerrainType>
    		<bMakesValid>1</bMakesValid>
    	</TerrainMakesValid>
    </TerrainMakesValids>
    As for changing the time, i think you can't change missions right now.
    Of course i might be wrong :)
