Description
The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway is the most famous of the railways featured in the 'Mountain Railways of India' UNESCO World Hertiage site. It was built during the British Raj period of Indian colonisation in order to provide access to the mountain city of Darjeeling and the rich tea plantations which surround it. It is widely known as the 'Toy Train', as it is a very small train with only a two-foot gauge of railroad track. Ingame, the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway provides 3 sources of the Tea resource and an additional +3 Happiness, while it requires Railroad and must be built in a city on a hill tile.

Requires the Gods & Kings expansion pack, credit to co-authors Janboruta for the wonder icon and Sukritact for the Tea resource (And fixing the off centering of the main icon, which was my fault), with special thanks to sirrliv for pointing out the train featured in the splash was not actually the Darjeeling Himalayan.

V2 released 8 March 2013, see notes for more details

can the tea be changed to a more specific kind of tea? There are a lot of mods that add tea as a resource.

Hey, I really like this mod, but I do have one quibble. It'd be nice if the description was updated to show it needs to be near a mountain tile. I mean I suppose it makes sense but since it only says it needs to be on a hill, I found myself confused when I tried to build it in one of my cities but it didn't work. So perhaps add that or maybe get rid of the mountain req?

I tried editing the XML but it gave me some graphical errors.

Absolutely love this one, one of your most creative and balanced sets of bonuses, and an extremely cool and somewhat less well known wonder at that- this is one of my favorite real world wonders, too- brilliant engineering making a tiny engine do the work of a full size one. ^_^

Thanks

Haven't got any idea, sorry - try asking at CivFanatics for some help?

Honestly, I'm trying to make building-based bonus resources for buildings that require X amount of cities to build for one. Any advice?
Pouakai  [author] Apr 26, 2013 @ 9:47pm 
Yeah, this has it only as a one-off. There's another mod by Sukritact (who usually does my icons) which adds Tea as a resource for Mercantile city states to provide, and I'm toying with the idea of adding new terrain-based resources at some point, which would include Tea without a question (Having said that, it might show up with the expansion)

Does this create just 3 tea resources as a 3-will-only-happen-with-this-wonder?

Honestly, I love tea and all, but can you have an addon that creates buildings (possibly 1 per 5 cities you own) that create a tea resource?

But they're all either too small or not fitting for a splash screen, which is where I face the issue
