    Few More Buildings for VP

    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    New content:

    - The latest version 1.1 of Ski Resort Building for VP by gwennog
    Now, bonus are +3 :c5culture: Culture and + 3 :tourism: Tourism per Mountain worked.
    - The new version 1.1 of Clock Tower Building (Vox Populi only) by jarcast2
    A late Medieval-era building which enhances productivity helping your City grow more quickly.​
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________

    :w00t: Btw, I advise you to visit Jarcast's civilizations thread with many very good new civs for VP. :w00t:


    The new Building pack is called few More Buildings (200508).7z
    With in it:

    • Casino Building 4VP (v 1.0)
    • Clock Tower Building (v 1.1)
    • GMO Laboratory Building 4VP (v 1)
    • Polar Station 4VP (v 1.0)
    • Recruitment Office Building 4VP (v 3)
    • Ski Resort Building 4VP (v 1.1)

    And now, who will make a new Building ?

    I played your Building recently.
    My thought:
    I think it gives too much Tourism too easely. Moutain becomes very valuable. Also, at a point of the game every Civs produce Mulle Wine (in some map). What the point?
    You may find a way to make the access of this Building more restrictive... IMO
    ----------------------

    If you enjoy Building modding, I suggest you a collaboration Code/Art with me to make a Big Wheel building. Something like a happiness maker, restricted by number of Populations...

    I adjusted the bonuses for the ski resort compared to the zoo which generates a lot more tourism. But actually it makes an additional tourist building in the game which can be seen as an imbalance for VP. I played a lot of games without a city near a mountain, never without forest or jungle.
    For the mulled Wine, do not find out what the point? :) Initially, I wanted to add a bonus of happiness but I found that more funny. It's not a monoplole luxury resource, it does not hurt anyone if the wine flows afloat (but as for placement near a mountain, is rarely the case)

    I played a lot of games without any civ being able to build a ski resort but no problem to nerfed them if you consider it too powerful. Why not +2 :tourism: and +2 :c5culture: ?
    To make the building more restrictive without lua, I do not see? Do you have any ideas ?

    Yes with pleasure.

    I like the visual of the London Eye :

    I was just giving my thought. After all, you are free (like I am) to design this Building what ever you want and I'm sure other players love as it is.

    Fine. I PM you.

    My first mod, so I'd love some feedback on how balanced it is. Probably isn't currently...

    Also I was wondering if there was some sort of API/reference for what VP adds for modders? I did a little modding for base civ 5 (didn't finish the mod) but there are a lot of things that VP adds to make it easier for modders, and I was wondering how I could find out what was added. So far I've just been looking through other mods hoping they use it or looking through the Github.

    If no feedback, let's say all is fine.
    My opinion is that happiness+gold+culture for a simple building is maybe a bit too much

    Yeah, I thought it might be a bit to strong but wasn't sure, thanks for the feedback. I removed the Gold boost to the other buildings and the poverty reduction.

    Looks fine. Thx
    I suggest to all of you to install Parks for Vox Populi (v 2) and tell us if all is good with it.

    It will be integrated in Few More Buildings pack for VP in few days weeks anyways.

    There's no need to break open doors if the code is ready to use :)

    By the way, awesome design, awesome picture and the most original building so far in this topic deserving 1st place.
    My 2nd place is Polar Station and 3rd - Casino.

    It would be good to have it in one big pack instead of separate modmods. Maybe you should create github repository with all those buildings merged together in one mod? Easy to edit, easy to build new version if some small changes are made. And it does not create a mess in mods folder with bunch of small separate mods.

    Now it's time for some early era building.

    UPDATE
    Few More Buildings for VP

    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    New content:

    -Park for Vox Populi (version 2)
    This is the first Mod from InkAxis (Art and code) :clap:
    More Buildings, More Unique Components, More Wonders and Icon Templates (here)- used as templates/ to learn.

    -Cemetry Building 4VP (version 1) by gwennog
    I proudly made the icon for this very distinctive and well coded building.
    __________________________________________________________________________________________


    The new Buildings pack is called Few More Buildings (200622).7z
    With in it:
    • Casino Building 4VP (v 1.0)
    • Clock Tower Building (v 1.1)
    • GMO Laboratory Building 4VP (v 1)
    • Polar Station 4VP (v 1.0)
    • Recruitment Office Building 4VP (v 3)
    • Ski Resort Building 4VP (v 1.1)
    • Parks for Vox Populi (v 2)
    • Cemetery Building 4VP (v 1)
    (Details and link)


    I well aware about the (little) mess when a lot of small separate mods are in our Mod folder. But the goal of this Few More building pack is not to add as much buildings as possible to VP.
    I suggest instead to pick only the buildings that meet your needs (Playstyle, Challenge, Scenario...)
    This Few More Buildings for VP thread is open to all modders and to all new Buildings. Even if several of them have a similar effect. This is why you have to understand what and why you load a building or an other.

    I agree.

    Even "mine"
    The trick is to look for a ("subject" art/cartoon/png) and transform the result into a civ5 style visual.
