Adds the Turian Hierarchy as a Civilization, led by Garrus Vakarian.

Garrus Vakarian is a Turian, formerly with C-Sec's Investigation Division. Like most Turians, Garrus had military training at fifteen, but later followed in his father's footsteps to become a C-Sec officer. After being frustrated by politics and the inability to deal justice without red tape, he quit C-Sec and became a legendary vigilante, known only as Archangel, in the galaxies most dangerous crime infested place; Omega. After helping to save the galaxy countless times, he is now a top ranking advisor for the Turians.

Trait: (Treaty of Farixen) Units earn 50% more experience from combat. Military training buildings gain +1 happiness.

UB: C-Sec. Replaces Police Station. -25% spy stealing rate. +3 culture. Gun units built in city receive a +15% combat bonus in friendly territory.

UB: Armax Arsenal. Replaces Forge. Doesn't require Iron. +25% production for land units built in city. Provides +1 iron.

This is the fourth of our planned Mass Effect civs, the Turians. Oh Garrus, how naive it was for me to think that you would be easier to create than most of the other civs. For some reason your complicated buildings and trait were a lot harder to make than first appeared, but at least the happiness you gain from your barracks will make up for the hassle you caused me and Tomatekh (who I must give special thanks to for his help). But now you're complete and can finally help bring justice to the world.

Anyway the Turians don't have a unique unit due to the fact that their entire military, and not one lone unit, is meant to be feared and respected. The military is the cornerstone of Turian society, it is what shapes them, so it would be unwise for anyone to take on the massive might of the Turian Hierarchy. With more experience, faster production, and just that tiny little bit more happiness, the Turians are not to be trifled with.

This is a dual project and we plan on creating and releasing all these civs (in no particular order) in the near future, and hopefully you'll enjoy them. :)
