Let's not start a holy war for/against Python in a thread about people liking the mod in 2019/2020 . Every coding language has its ups and downs.
I am happy to see that people are active. I also don't lose hope to see a similar mod in the new versions of CIv. However it's either me getting old, or the modding now looks like too much work with the changes to modding they introduced. I got burned out when I tried to make a building graphic and it looked 3 times harder than in Civ4.
