Hey i'm curious to know what do you have in mind for Mexico's Unique Infrastructure
For those who are curious about my choice for Mexico's Unique Infrastructure, as well as @Birch617, here's my explanation.
A Capilla Abierta is basically an open chapel. It is considered one of Mexico's most distinct types of architecture. It was built to allow more native Mexicans to attend services, as the confines of European cathedral designs were too small to accommodate the number of church-goers. It also resembled the pre-Hispanic temples and teocallis. Besides Mass, Capilla Abiertas were also used for plays, dances, music, and other events that explained and defined the Catholic faith.
I like it , Usually a lot of people here tend to think that Latino civs can only have Haciendas as their infrastructure, so i appreciated that you did amazing research and found something that could fit very well in the game.
When I was in Mexico I found every city their have a thing called Zocallo, it is in city center kind of main square, full of trees and places to rest.
Maybe an extra option to be Mexico unique building, the Zocallo.
Zocalo is a way to refer the main plaza of city
Interesting. Although, I feel as if the Capilla Abierta would synergize with Mexico's current abilities much better than the Zocalo.
Charles Martel also leads the Carolingian Empire in Sid Meier's Civilization 6: Tales Untold.
Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla is indded the official "Padre de la Patria" but historically his movement was disastrous. He took terrible militar decisions and was unable to prevent massacres of unarmed spanish civilians, he and most of his own initial movement leaders were either imprisoned of executed on few time. Most of the independence war was in reality realized by local insurgents mainly on the regions of Michoacán and Guerrero, and even most of them ended suppressed. Was until the Iberian goverment passed the new more liberal laws that the conservative criolle elites of the New Spain decided to turn independent, that is the reason the first Mexican goverment was the Empire of Agustín de Iturbide. Then most of the 19th century Mexico was divided on Conservative vs Liberal, Secessionist and Foreign Intervention wars.
As a Mexican I would said that Benito Juárez is by far a better option that Miguel Hidalgo, historically even Porfirio Díaz would be better leader despite being considered a villain by the official history.
> 19th century MÉXICO: Benito Juárez or Porfirio Díaz for the Liberal focus.
- UU: Lancero de Jalisco.
- UI: Lienzo Charro.
> 20t century MÉXICO: Lázaro Cárdenas for the post Revolutionary focus.
- UU: Soldadera.
- UI: Ejido.
Good ideas! Although, I have already planned out the next 2 "packs" if you will, so a long wait is needed. However, I will put Cardenas on a potential Leader list.
Mexican pre columbian history is so rich, I guess this game need to do more civs from their. Toltecs, Zapotecs, Mixtecs and Olmecs. Mexico Civ isn't that appealing.
Roger II leads Sicily in Sid Meier's Civilization 6: Tales Untold.
Gediminas leads Lithuania in Sid Meier's Civilization 6: Tales Untold.
Al-Hasan ibn Sulaiman leads the Swahili in Sid Meier's Civilization 6: Tales Untold.
We have no actual images of Al-Hasan, so this is the best I have for his image.
Also, all credit to @Mr. Salt for this Civ idea. He came up with everything, and all I'm doing is publicizing his idea.
Also, if you see any similarities with Sukritact's idea, this isn't @Mr. Salt's fault. It's not easy to find any other unique things for the Swahili.

Skanderbeg leads Albania in Sid Meier's Civilization 6: Tales Untold.
Coincidentally this was the same day when Boris Gudenuf gave me an example Civ list for a project I asked for help creating
Various Albanian civs appeared
Specifically, I'm trying to put together a Master List of cultures/States/polities from which to extract Civs, City States, named Barbarians, whatever, for either Civ VII or the "Perfect Historical 4X" game. This is going to take a while, because, for instance, here is the 'Albania' list:
Illyrian Tribes (2000* - 800 BCE*)
Kingdom of the Enchelai (800* - 500 BCE*)
Kingdom of the Dassaretii (500* - 270 BCE)
Bardylid Dynasty (448 - 270 BCE)
Principality of Arber (1190 - 1256* CE)
Kingdom of Albania (1272 - 1355 CE)
Princedom of Albania (1368 - 1444 CE)
League of Lezhe (1444 - 1479 CE)
Principality of Albania (1914 - 1924 CE)
First Republic of Albania (1924 - 1928 CE)
Kingdom of Albania (1928 - 1939 CE)
People’s Republic of Albania (1945 - 1991 CE)
Fourth Republic of Albania (1991 - 2021 CE)
I leave it to your imagination as to how many Barbarian Tribes, City States or Civs could be extracted just from this list alone - and yes, there are named Leaders available for at least the Illyrian Kingdom of the Dassaretii and (mostly pretty mediocre) Leaders for the 'Albanian' States since the 12th Century CE.
Probably extremely big, not everyone can possibly make it
