    Anyone know a mod that can improve the minimap to show color for desert/plains/tundra/ice? Could care less about the jungle/forest etc... over it, but having a quick mini map color code would be wonderful for planning future expansion at a glance while exploring.

    I use a ton of little mods tha improve little things here and there:
    - Norway UA buff (free seaports in coastal cities)
    - Atlatl indirect fire
    - improved lighthouses
    - American Ranch UB to replace the B17 (mod modded to replace stables, grants +1 food, in addition to production, to horses/sheep/cows)
    - copper buff (can build Mint in copper cities)
    - 30% slower research
    - ... I really can't remember the others, but I have about 15 mods like this.

    For SP tree balancing, I combine the (generic-sounding) "Game Balance" mod with the "Liberty BNW + Venice" mod. Some small buffs to Liberty and bigger buffs to Piety.

    Also some bigger stuff: I like Beyond the Future because it gets you to spend more time in the Information Age before a SV (but I nerfed some of its late units). I also use my own combat and resource rebalance mod: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=525334

    Any good religion mods that you guys have tried? I have really been enjoying piety games and it would be fun to mix up with different choices

    EUI, Smarter AI, Game Balance (it's a small tweak from the guy who did Smarter AI,) Antiquity Sites Filter, and Ethiopia Color Fix.

    I use only:
    -Really Advanced Setup (to remove some civ I hate)
    -Communitas Map Script
    -Pontoon Bridges, which goes very well with the Com. map, but the AI doesn't use them :(
