Start a "Custom Game" and enable the "Choose Religions" checkbox to see the new religions founded. Important!!! If you have added any custom leaderheads to the game, delete the file \JARM\Assets\XML\Civilizations\CIV4LeaderHeadInfos.xml (or merge it with your file) It has only the vanilla Leaders. The only changes are, that the new religions are added to the favourite religions of some leaders. If you want, you can edit your CIV4LeaderHeadInfos.XML to add the new religions as well. The relevant tag is: <FavoriteReligion> Have fun with it. Edit: What we wanted was a very neutral term for each religion, which won't restrict us to specific aspects of these. (Which wasn't an easy job for the greek, norse, egyptian and mesoamerican religion.) Both of us aren't experts or theologicans, all we know about these religions, we found out by internet research. But as far we have investigated, for none of this four religions there isn't anything like an official name for them. But of course we are open to suggestions. In the light of (recent) events we want to say, that we don't want to offend anybody with whatever he does believe in. Like said, we are no experts in theology. We created this mod because we thought the vanilla religions in Civ4 aren't the only important ones in history. And of course we wanted to spice up Civ4. But we can't implement every single religion, we can only do it as laymen, and there are also limitations by want can be coded and what not.
