    This is a cool idea, but it probably devalues Brandenburg if every city can pump out units with huge amounts of exp. I personally won't use it, but I commend the efforts and ideas that the modmod community continues to bring to VP's table. Keep up the great work @Asterix Rage !

    About Recruitment Office:
    You are right !
    Brandenburg Wonder +15XP is a joke. Even Military Academy Building gives +25XP and Armory Building +20XP

    Feel free to adjust things at your taste:

    \MODS\Recruitment Office Building 4VP (v 1.0)\core\RO_building.sql
    Code:
    -- Building_DomainFreeExperiences
    INSERT INTO Building_DomainFreeExperiences(BuildingType, DomainType, Experience)
    SELECT 'BUILDING_RO', 'DOMAIN_LAND', 25 UNION ALL
    SELECT 'BUILDING_RO', 'DOMAIN_SEA', 25 UNION ALL
    SELECT 'BUILDING_RO', 'DOMAIN_AIR', 25;
    
    Here, you can replace 25 with whatever you want.

    Or even better:
    Code:
    UPDATE Building_DomainFreeExperiences
    SET Experience = '30'
    WHERE BuildingType = 'BUILDING_BRANDENBURG_GATE' AND EXISTS (SELECT * FROM COMMUNITY WHERE Type='COMMUNITY_CORE_BALANCE_BUILDINGS' AND Value= 1 );
    
    Copy those lines at the end of RO_building.sql to have Brandenburg giving +30XP !

    Now, what makes the Recruitment Office exciting is the random Skillful Promotion. Few of your endgame Units will be like Elite Troops...
    "One more turn" syndrome Guarantee

    Thx for the report

    The mistake affect Japan only (+1:c5culture: and +1:c5faith: with Shogunate trait)
    So no need to worry if Japan is not on the map. Otherwise Japan will miss its +1:c5culture: and +1:c5faith: coming with Recruitment Office. No big deal

    Thank you for the instructions, but I already use PDan's Building Tweaks modmod (which includes a Brandenburg "fix"). I love the Polar Station idea though, and will definitely be trying it out. :thumbsup:

    This thread is not a "by Asterix Rage" thread only.
    @ any of you who have made a new building for your own use, do not hesitate to upload it here.

    For those who wish to learn how to mod, know that the observation of these small Building Mods is perfect for understanding the basics of structure and SQL code.

    Thank you. I have tested it only a pair of times, not sure that the balance is good.

    It will be never finished !

    Now, the goal is not to add as much buildings as possible in VP.

    - Vox Populi tends to be a perfect ModPack that is self-sufficient. Balanced and pleasant.
    - Those Buildings are to fit your playstyle, or to fill some gaps in certain circumstances.
    - Many modmods bring amazing features and are able to enhance the experience. Enjoy them but first play VP only. Then you'll know where you want to go.

    NEW:
    GMO Laboratory Building 4VP (v 1)

    UPDATE:
    Recruitment Office Building 4VP (v 3)
    Fix: A Skillful Promotion can't be given to a Civilian Units anymore (Thanks to pineappledan for his help on it)

    Because the number of upload is limited (10 max), "Few More Buildings (070220).7z" is a pack with all individual MODs shown above.

    EDIT:
    The question now is: Who will make the next Extra VP Building Mod ?

    I have a question regarding Ski Resort - if you don't work mountains (not Inca), then you get mulled wine and some little gold from tourism and that's all? Building and it's maintenance expensive

    Bonus of Ski Resort work like Machu Picchu Wonder, there isn't need to "work" the mountains, it's enough that they are 3 tiles or less from the city.

    But I agree with you, for a building of this era and this cost, the bonus is low (compared to the zoo for example). In the last version the bonus are +3 :c5culture: Culture and + 3 :tourism: Tourism per Mountain worked.
