Hey,

I have been trying to create a new major god for Egyptians, for the scenario editor. But no matter what I do, the game doesn't recognize the new major god as a set tech status, and the new god is not visible in the player data menu, even though I played with the majorgods file.

So far I have created brand new buildings, created new villagers, played with unit transformations, created new technologies, even played with minor gods. But I am having trouble with the major gods.

Which file should I try to edit? [I know that I can't create new major God for the main menu, I am mostly talking about the scenario editor. and if there is a way to edit the map or scenario data.
Any advice?

Whilst Minor Gods are very possible to add (since they're technically glorified technologies) Major Gods much like Civilisations sadly aren't.

Essentially rather than having a "major gods.xml" which would define a "civilisation"/Major God (which is how major gods work technically, since the greeks, norse, etc are technically Cultures) and all the required culturelogic, and tech definition, and all that stuff, Ensemble Studios decided it be smarter (/sarcasm) to just hardcode it all.

TLR: Minor Gods are possible, Major Gods aren't.

I am actually working on a work-around at the moment.

I am creating a duplicate towncenter that will create unique villagers, and they will have their own unique Major God Statues, temples etc. It only works in the scenario editor at the moment.

Minor Gods will be manually selected as researchable technology. It will be a lot of work, but I am sure that I will be proud of the result.
