Description
- New cities get free buildings based on Advanced Start rules for the current era. (For example, if Granaries are normally free for games starting in the Renaissance Era, cities founded in the Renaissance Era or later will get Granaries in any game.)
- New cities get extra population based on Advanced Start rules for the current era. (For example, if cities normally get 1 extra population for games starting in the Renaissance Era, cities founded in the Renaissance Era or later will get 1 extra population in any game.)

@mjv96 I don't mean to poach their subscribers but I made a mod that does just that. You can check it out right here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=474417867

Sounds pretty vanilla-friendly to me.

Is this vanilla? Would love to use.

For clarity, it adds the buildings based on your current era and the building's setting for "FreeStartEra". For a full breakdown, open your Civ5Buildings.xml (or Civ5Buildings_Expansion.xml for G&K specific buildings) and check each building you are curious about. If you want to change specific buildings to be free sooner, make yourself a little mod in the SDK, it's pretty easy to do. I have done this and can verify that it works; changing the FreeStartEra for a building causes this mod to grant them at the newly specified era.

A minor issue is that it will grant some sea buildings to land-locked cities. Seems like the script should have built in some kind of check for eligibility.

pretty sure this mod will just check what buildings are available and add them. that is, for BNW, if a city gets a free Ampitheater in that era it does anyway. this mod is not GK specific, the coding looks like it can apply seamlessly to BNW
