    Also digging the religious ideas. But maybe the bonus between Sunni and Shi'ite should be quartered instead of halved? They don't like each other very much. It's an east-side, west-side thing. :p

    No, I have between them right now a halved penalty.

    One of the Argentinean UHVs should have to do with the Falklands. And maybe something else relating to the Europeans that immigrated there in the 20th Century.

    A very underpowered UP. A tundra would still only have what 1 :food: 1 :hammers: and 1 :gold:? Specialists would kill these tiles.

    I suggest either plus 1 :food: and ability to build on tundra without water or ability to farm tundra (With bio is +2 :food: would be very helpful and other civs that cap the cities wouldn't go into starvation)

    Also Canada should spawn around 1850 is my guess.

    One of the Argentinian UHVs should have to do with their powerful economy, as they were the second largest economy in the world at one point. So:
    -Be the richest nation in the world in 1910/1920
    OR
    -Have the highest GDP (or whatever that thing is) in 1910/1920

    Also, the Mayans are also super hard, perhaps even harder than the Khmer, if you can believe it. So, two things: a) don't expect it to be done for a little while AND b) any suggestions for how to find more/encompass more?

    The UB of the Swedish isn't very Unique. (It's the same as the English Stock Exchange, but stronger.) I suggest giving it 1 free merchant.
    The last UHV of the Swedish is too hard. You won't be able to get the amount of culture that France (or every other civ) will get by the time you will spawn.

    The UHV of Argentina comes too quick. You have just 20 turns to get it, which can be impossible. You have to be lucky to get this UHV.
    The UB only add 1 culture, which isn't very strong IMO.

    And much more important, the unit is called Karolin.

    How about 1950? Other than that, sounds good.

    I can add +1 Merchant. The Culture is there merely because I wasn't sure how easy it would or wouldn't be to become the Richest Nation in europe alone with an Economically Minded UB like that.

    Can change this, how about 1900 AD? And +5 Culture for the Building?

    Whoops!

    Looks good, especially stuff like the dynamic rebirths.
    Do you have plans to add any more civs? From Jarkovs mod, I think the Celts, Koreans, Native Americans and Zulu were good additions. Also think it would be good to have another South American civ, either Brazil or Argentina (or both).
    Also wondering, do minor civs cause much time or resource usage? If not, would it be possible to create a good number, that only spawn depending on certain conditions. E.g. say if a civ collapsed completely like the Ottomans, any cities in the area around Armenia would go to a minor Armenian civ instead of just independents? Might be useful for some of the Chinese factions aswell.

    With the Shi'a Muslim spawn, what would happen if someone other than Arabia gets Sunni Islam? Admittedly it only really happens with human players but it seems weird to have Islam in china suddenly split into two sects half the world apart.

    Then you'll probably have to kill all European civs.

    Spoiler :
    Which isn't a problem either. :evil:

    I'd not say it's impossible to culturally overtake everyone from 1523 to the 20th century. It's a lot of time to hire artists, build culture and use the slider.

    For Argentina, you could do something to do with the education system, which is renowned as one of the world's best, and easily the best in Latin America. They also are quite well-known for their scientific achievements, so I was thinking a UHV somewhere along the lines of:
    -Build 5 Universities, 5 Observatories, 5 Laboratories and an Academy by 2000 AD

    Also, I was thinking that Argentina could be the Maya rebirth since they have no one else to be reborn as. Plus the colour works really well. Then, the Incas could remain as the more sensible Peru rebirth.
