University and fourth European resource (Probabilities and possibilities)

Yes, capitols come too late in a game and serve no additional purpose.
In vanilla that’s fine, but every new culture group gets a whole lot of “bundled buildings”. Bundled economic buildings can always made fair as Europeans have factories. But it’s not that Europeans can get to imperial age really faster than others so they’ll need a special building to somewhat “delay” their access to imperial techs (even most casual games do not go to imperial)

I think they should follow the US state capitol model, accessible earlier in age 3 and with a few new techs, but a little weaker so that state capitol is still unique enough (it can train building wagons which is already very unique though):

But it could also follow the basilica model that gives unique “shipments”, much like the university in the NE mod.
