Dont get me wrong but i dont think adding religion is a good idea just yet. Most of the religions that will be added will open up a whole new front to tackle. Hellenism/Egyptian religion: would require balancing with Islam and Christianity, will have to look for tech. Confucianism: founding and tech and balance. Shia Islam: No point in adding Shia Islam without adding more Muslim faction (Persia, Egypt, Almoravids and maybe a Central asian civ) especially without adding Persia. Orthodoxy: Will require balance and u will have to figure out how to make it spread to Byzantine and Russia. Adding Ture Prophet is a huge change and will require alot of attention. I think u should tackle the resource problem first because it is already half done and bad resource placement equals unbalanced gameplay. Religion will require tweaking techs, spread rates, founding probability, adding civs and whole lot of other stuff. If anything u should tackle religion after your done with adding civs, this will save u alot of time becuz then u wont have tweak religion everytime u add a civ or implement a new component to gameplay. P.s: are u fixing the starting locations (China and India) in v2 or will it have to wait?
