This mod adds the Ecuadorians as a selectable culture in the Contemporary Era. No other cultures are replaced and the mod does not change anything outside of this specific culture.
The Ecuadorians are also part of my South America Culture Pack and my Culture Super Pack.
The Ecuadorians have their own Legacy Trait, Emblematic Quarter, and Emblematic Unit. Info below:
Legacy Trait: Las Islas Galápagos: +5% Influence on emblematic districts per territory in your sphere of influence; -10% to absorb city cost
Emblematic District: National Park: Replaces the Nature Reserve; Must be placed on a natural modifier (like the Nature Reserve); Exploits all tile yields but provides +400% to Food and Science yields; +1 Influence per Food and Science produced on tile; +1 Money per Influence produced on tile; +5 Fame on construction per Influence produced on tile; +2 Researcher Slots; May only be built once per city; Unlocks at Research Institute
Emblematic Unit: Cyber Defense Operatives: Replaces the Commandos; 55 Combat Strength (instead of 54 for the Commandos); +8 Combat Strength against armoured units; Unlocks at Covert Ops
If you encounter bugs, please let me know! You can find me on Reddit, Steam, and Discord under the name uncle2fire.

Why the Ecuadorians?
Ecuador is home to the northern Andes, the northwestern Amazon, and the Galápagos Islands, which together make it one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. With a long history of tourism for its natural beauty, Ecuador has been among the pioneers of ecotourism in South America. The Galápagos National Park was Ecuador's first national park and is the country's most famous attraction today.
