    So I've been messing around with the missionaries and I'm trying to add new religion effects. I haven't been able to do it successfully, so if someone's willing to give it a shot, I'll send the files I have.

    It seems that it's not as simple as just adding the effect to the XML; you also have to make new .nif and .kf files with references to the new effects.

    can I offer myself to write some civilopedia info? Come on, I am peruvian and I have studied lotsa incan and pre-incan history ( not aztec nor maya), of course I will not write things such as "spanish were evil and they didn't take a bath" or "the incas are the best, better than the greece, the romans yaddayadda" or something nationalistic like that :D.

    Sure, I added a new religion (Pachamama) and I need pedia text keys. Have a look at CIV4GameText_MEM_Religions.xml. Try to give a brief overview of the beliefs and then focus on archeological and social aspects. I also need pedia entries for Chasqui runners and Kallawaya herbalists, which with be put in the corporation text file.

    Also, could you come up with a list of Huari and Tiwanaku archeological sites? It would be helpful for working it into a settler map

    The religion will be called pachamama? Pachama was the godess of earth according to the Incas, so maybe the religion could be called just as simple as "Incan beliefs (or religion)" or "Andeanism", because nobody knows how they called their religion.

    About the Chasquis Runners, as corporations? Weird, but cool! It is more suitable than putting them as UUs, because they were people who delivered messages across the Tahuantinsuyo.

    And, have you uploaded the mod files? Where they are?

    Well, I'm using three different andean belief systems (Viracocha, Pachamama, and Inti) because they have different origins and were given different precedence in different cultures. The holy cities will be Tiwanaku, Pachakamaq, and Qusqu respectively.

    The files in SVN can be found here. If you want, I could add you as a developer, but you need an account first.

    Yeah! I was just about to say that those were not religions but I read my history book. As you may know the Incas worshiped( is it with double "p"?) mainly the Inti, but also the Pachamama and Viracocha (or wiracocha, same thing). But there were more religions in the Andes. My idea is that you could make a religion like "paganism" (similar to RFC europe), so that it could represent it.

    Perhaps it could be possible adding as another Unique Power to the Incas something like religious tolerance, because when they conquered cities they accepted their god but with the condition they also adored the Inti.

    I am not trying to overpower the Incas, but they were like that. Also, about the spanish conquerors, they only conquered the Incas not by having gunpowder or horses (huh, they were only 50 men) but convincing the subjugated peoples o join their cause against the tahaunatinsuyo. So, to represent it you could make that in the year were Pizarro arrived there will be a huge stability decrease. Remember in that time there was an Incan civil war to claim the throne, and because unstabilty makes possible civil wars, it will be great.

    And yes, add me as a dev, I just recently registered (with lower than 50 employees lol).

    Been reading a lot of Charles Mann recently and would be willing to do a bit of Civilopedia writing on the side. I don't have a lot of time, but I can handle a little bit of art or music as well.
