    My usersetting looks like this
    Code:
    --==========================================================================================================================
    -- USER SETTINGS (Thanks to JFD <3)
    --==========================================================================================================================
    -- JFD_GlobalUserSettings
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS
    JFD_GlobalUserSettings (
       Type    text        default null,
       Value    integer    default 1);
     
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -- If you think that it is too OP that sanctuaries give also 1 Great Person point, then put zero to the following:
    
    INSERT INTO JFD_GlobalUserSettings
           (Type,                               Value)
    VALUES   ('GREAT_PEOPLE_POINTS',               1);
    
    
    --==========================================================================================================================
    --==========================================================================================================================   
    Also I don't know if this is a place to discuss it, but due to VP specifics, you get couple of extra border tiles at the start of the game, but you still have to discover animal husbandry or trapping.

    - some totems are ridculous. Bull give you 2:c5citizen:,5:c5food::c5production:,1:c5culture: and at least 1:c5faith: AND +50% xp and double heal. That's more than some civs UAs :| plus fountain of youth.
    - buying settlers with faith doesnt work. unless it starts after you found religion;
    - unique spearmen miniature doesnt work
    - my starting pathfinder was getting all blessings from all sancuaries, after I had 4 cities, I had superman :)

    @infidel88 I answer this here as it should be, and also in case someone has feedbacks and suggestions on how to impove the balance and enjoyability of my mod. :)

    You are right. I downloaded my mod from the civfanatics link and oddly it contains still the old version without the additions. I have reuploaded the correct version now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    This one is normal, the resources are already there on the claimed tiles but not yet visible to the player. To fix this I should give a civ-specific dummy technology that reveals the UA-relevant resources at the start of the game but it is not much convenient because in few turns you will research the tech to discover them anyway (either Trapping or Animal husbandry).

    For this one I already thought it was somewhat OP but because it is quite situational (you get it only if there's cattle around and if the random 1-1000 draw is higher than for the other eligible resources) I also thought that it could pass. :undecide:

    Yes, you need to have a religion in order to do any faith purchase. Unfortunately, I don't know how to code lua so that you can purchase it also just without a religion. For this reason I also made the UA so that it will be relatively easy to be able to found a religion.

    I solved this issue with the supposed update that didn't upload correctly.

    This one is strange and should not happen. Usually in my games the starting pathfinder gets the bonus only from the capital. It was so in my last game (played yesterday on the 10-10 VP version) so I don't know what kind of bug caused it :think:.

    It is not the place to discuss it. You should probably delete your post and move it here, or else someone will probably get a mod to delete/move it. That thread is specifically set aside as a showcase; it is not a place to carry on a discussion

    This is hardcoded. You'll need a majority religion in any city to faith-purchase (not pantheons).

    Also infidel88 should have discussed your mod in this thread: https://forums.civfanatics.com/thre...jarcasts-civilization-s.628454/#post-15245855 which should be made evident in the showcase post to avoid another confusion like this again.

    So none of these civs got seal 4 and 5 .
    So I understand that Gazebo is just not interested in custom civs. Understandable, he has a lot to do without it.
    But why any of these civs cannot be put in photojournal or Youtube? What is "exploding"? A crash? I haven't experience that with civs that are compatible with 3&4UC mod (I don't try other civs).
    Some civs don't have 3 seal, but should have. Those are: Canada, Papal States, Tibet, Timurids, Tojo's Japan and Victoria's Great Britain.

    This is pretty incomplete list :/

    I am thinking of just getting rid of it because posts have a 30 image limit which won't let me put seals everywhere :(

    Also done. Added a seal to Sumeria.

    Then don't post an image for every seal. Those digits you used are fine.

    ugly trick: take a screenshot of your screen and link that!
    impossible trick: put your seal into new unicode codes and make them validated by the Unicode Consortium.
    ugly diagram: group the mods by seals.

    Is arf arf a term from 60's music scene? This is what pulled up through searches.

    Haha. No. It's the sound a seal makes! As in the animal. Arf arf.

    I blame my 2yo daughter for this terrible joke. No...no...actually, I blame myself.

    Could be fun, when we go gold someday, to include one or two custom civs as a bit of a 'final polish' to the game. I'd let you all decide which ones get in, of course.
