I've mentioned several times that I plan to change most European civs, especially their UHVs. I mainly delayed this to turn Italy into a normal civ before, but that's almost done now. I'm uncertain about certain aspects so I thought I put them up to discussion first (sometimes I'll mention more than three goals, of course it will be only three in the end). VIKINGS UP changes: additional gold from pillaging, conquering cities and sinking ships UHV: Control the core of another European civ in 1050 AD Found a city in America by 1100 AD Accumulate 3000 gold by pillaging, conquering cities and sinking ships by 1500 AD Have 5000 gold in 1500 AD SPAIN Be first to found a city in America Acquire a total of 10 gold or silver resources by 1650 AD Have the largest empire in the world in 1760 AD FRANCE Make Paris a city of legendary culture by 1700 AD Have 25000 culture in Paris by 1700 AD Control or vassalize 50% of Europe and North America in 1800 AD Build Notre Dame, Versailles, Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower by 1900 AD ENGLAND Colonize North America (5), Asia (5), Africa (4), South America (3) and Australia (3) by 1730 AD [required cities in brackets] Have a fleet of 25 ships frigates and ships of the line and sink 50 enemy ships by 1800 AD Be first to enter the Industrial and Modern eras RUSSIA Settle 10 7 Siberian cities by 1700 AD Be first to finish the Apollo Program and Manhattan project and build the Trans-Siberian Railway by 1920 AD Have friendly relations with 5 communist civilizations by 1950 AD Control 50 ICBMs by 1970 AD ITALY UP change: +10% GPP per city culture level OR +1 free specialist if City States is changed (see below) UB change: +25% culture instead of extra happiness UHV: Build San Marco Basilica, Leaning Tower and Sistine Chapel by 1500 AD Have three cities with influential culture in by 1600 AD Control 75% of the Mediterranean in 1930 AD Control Ethiopia, North Africa and the Balkans in 1930 AD Be first to discover Banking, Education, Patronage, Electricity, Fascism Be first to discover all Medieval, Renaissance and Industrial techs[that is, not the first to all of them individually, but the first who has all of them together] NETHERLANDS Be first to have complete map of the world Settle three great merchants in Amsterdam by 1745 AD Acquire 7 spice resources by 1775 AD Conquer 7 European colonies by 1800 AD On the City States change I've mentioned: I've realized that giving benefits for closely founded cities that are also beneficial for widely spaced cities doesn't make much sense. So I thought what closely placed cities lack, and that's tiles to work (obviously), and therefore, food. So I thought a better effect would be to give a city +1 food for every specialist that exceeds the number of worked land tiles. I'm also a little torn on Italy's UHV. It should encourage the use of all types of great people, and represent the areas in which Italy was advanced, like Banking, Patronage and Education (hence the tech goal idea, which also represents Industrial Italy). The wonder goal is nice because it requires exactly those techs and would also use some great engineers to get them built in time. The drawback is that it doesn't cover later Italy. Comments welcome.
