The Mundane mod

This mod intends to remove all fanciful creatures from the game,  flesh out humans and improve the variety of above ground life

it can be found here

changlog
--0.13 | plants are actually millable (at least those that ought to be) new civ has been added, 6 new plants are in and religions are larger
--0.095 | wheat and maize should be millable and the hot biome civ is darker skinned then the cold biome civ
--0.09 | 5 human civs and 4 plants added fanciful creatures removed

suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated
also I could try and get a graphics pack prepackaged with this if there is enough interest and i can get permission.

I seem to remember Eskimos being darker skinned than Europeans.

they do but that is thought to be a result of the gulf stream allowing people around the Baltic to grow crops with very low vitamin D in an area with low sun levels already. aside from odd things like that people generally get lighter skinned as you move away from the equator. it shouldn't be cut and dry in game though as all the civs can go anywhere classed as temperate

also version 0.13 is up it has a new civ some expanded religions 6 new plants and finally fixes the milling issues i was having.
next is probably putting in malting and phasing out/ balancing the vanilla crops with dome more new plants so they(the vanilla ones) don't grow everywhere all year.

This looks really interesting.  Doesn't seem to work for me though: the application hangs as soon as I start it every time.  Am I missing something?  Forgive my stupidity.

This sounds really cool.  I'll definitely try it once I'm through with what I'm doing now.

I was actually just tearing out all the fantasy creatures and hippie elves out of a build of genesis.
Looks like I don't need to do that anymore ;D
