    Hi BlouBlou and thx for all the gread mods. I wrote a comment at to your Barbarian XP mod and then i realized there are so many more good mods of yours. So i deleted that comment :D
    to say it here, because it concerns all of your mods.
    MY QUESTION:
    I cant find a direct download link for these mods. Would you be so kind and add one please ?
    I use Linux and Workshop doesnt work on Linux yet, but i can add mods by downloading and copy them into MODS folder.
    Thank you.

    Are any of your mods multiplayer? If yes, then how would I set it up for multiplayer.

    @千九百九十五侍

    Hi, thx for your comment :)

    In fact, read all mod description about these mod for chateau , moai etc, they already also give some thing unique to the civ that used to have this unique ability.

    All those mod has 2 effect.

    1) making the unique improvment available for all
    2) giving the civ that previously owned it, some thing unique.

    For exemple, for the Moai mod, Polynesia gets the unique building : Marae.

    Regards.

    I use most of your mods and they are yet simple yet so great that they make game experience so much better! I have question/request: your mods that give any civs ability to build improvements such as moai, chateau. Shouldn't those civs who lost this their unique improvement have something new unique?

    Is there any way to directly download any of these utilities? I got the motte and bailey one to download to my mac and I really enjoy using that in any situation, but that is the only one that I have gotten even though I have subscribed to multiple ones on multiple occassions. I really think that these would enhance the gameplay and would love if there was a way to do that! Keep up the good work!

    @Silverfishv9 There's an enhanced Japan mod out there. I don't remember exactly what it does because I've used it for some time, but I do know it replaces the Zero and I think it buffs other things as well.
