This mod increases villager speed for slow civilizations (Non-Assryian/Yamato) to a level marginally below the Assy/Yama bonus.

It also balances other features, including Sumerian Villager (HP), Greek cavs (cost), Hittite ships (range)

Assyrian/Yamato maintain their speed bonus, and villagers are unchanged.

This will allow all civilizations to be used, and for fairer, more balanced games.

For a full and updated list of balances, see below.

Any questions on this, reasons for changes, or potential other mods, please ask!
