    But why would anyone want to use ICV in the first place if he/she doesn't want to turn the small-UI on? The whole idea of small-UI is that it allows to choose how some windows would look (mainly icons, _small.xmls uses smaller icons). If someone prefers to use non-small-UI then why would he/she use ICV?

    For the improved functionality, for example the Great People display and the Specialists box. Certainly people are using it as I've seen multiple posts where they didn't realize they needed to also use the small interface. Anyway, it's not a big deal if you see no value in making the change.

    Modpacks. If this mod is included in a modpack for multiplayer games, not everyone might have the resolution for small UI. (And that's a mess to give different modpacks to different peoples)

    But appart from that, I don't really see.

    Yeah having the option of keeping normal UI for the rest of the interfaces would be nice! I'm still using an older version of this mod but if you implemented that change I would switch immediately!
    And thank you for your work btw :)

    Could someone that uses normal-size UI post screenshot for comparison?

    @Infixo, help required!!

    Current beta has a new interface for unhappiness, that is not compatible with ICV. I can't play proficiently without it.

    You’ll do better with a merge tool. I can’t list out the lines very easily. WinMerge is free.

    Notepad++ also has a diff plugin (I think it's called something like 'Compare'...should be easy to find) in case you're using that text editor anyway. KDiff3 is also a good tool (standalone).

    Before I start messing with the files, does anyone happen to know if there is any way to turn on the building icons in the list of building a built in the city? I think this was the main reason why I went back to the very original version of this mod (I find the icons much easier to navigate).

    Can this mod's OP please be updated with the new, working version of the city view mod? It's really hard to find the latest version in these posts.

    @civplayer33 Can you get Infixo to update each OP to state links to your mods/updates for the ones you're working on?

    Doesn't seem like it; I've told him about me updating some of his mods but he just said to put the updates into his threads and that he doesn't currently plan to return to civ5...
