My plenty of ideas for trying to correct 3 Asian civs

Hello.

Here I would like to share my ideas for the Asian civs. Try to redesign and to research Asian civs in order to improve their political and cultural incorrectness, while at the same time trying to minimize interference with the main meta and the way to play.

The link below is about my ideas for the European, US and Native America civs.
Parts of the content there will be related to this thread.

Due to the plenty of contents below, sincerely thank you for reading.

The religious personnel will no longer be explorers, town leaders, or military centers.
Gorgeous temples, palaces, landmarks and Shogun Tokugawa are kept at the homeland, kept in the game data, no longer built in or sent to the new world.
The following will replace the monks and the wonder mechanic with close concepts, in order to remove the movie tropes and stereotypes as much as possible.
Besides, add a new option of export gathering efficiency at Consulate: +80% but -25% for other resources.

Japanese New Heroes, Age Mechanic and Changes

You can see that while adding something new, I still try not to waste the assets created by developers in the past, and to maintain the entertainment as much as possible.

I spent a lot of time searching and reading the cultural and historical details of these 3 civs. However, due to language barriers, the part of the Indians may not be as accurate as the parts of the other two civs. If there is a better name to reflect its effects, comments are welcome.

Thank you for reading. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
