The 5 new African Minor Civilisations (Natives) are more interesting and better than the old American and Asian Minors.
They have some interesting and new ideas like unlocking a Hero unit, giving things like poison damage or salt mines.
- Can unlock a Mercenary unit
- Can unlock a Hero unit
- Can give poison damage
- Can give (Gold) mine, Mango Grove, (Cherry) Orchard
- Can unlock second native unit
Also the two African Civilisations get an additional bonus for allying with Minor Civilisations, they get a 0.5 Influence trickle.
- Native Americans get a “ghost” villager at the Ceremonial Plaza
- Asians get an Export trickle
- Europeans could get XP trickle or something else
- New Native American and maybe also Asian Mercenary units
- New “Buildings” like an Orchard that doesn’t have Cherries
- New Hero units
