not sure if this is suppose to work previously. one of the update also added futureavailableicons.json but the support was never added for mod, confirmed with stepS as an oversight. maybe they can add support for history if it didn’t work previously

@StepS7578 please take note of this bug (history text) and the civ jingle music. currently both are not supported with mods system.

i uploaded the mod i was working on: https://www.ageofempires.com/mods/details/19833/
