This mod adds the Swiss 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 Swiss are also part of my Swiss Culture Pack and my Culture Super Pack.
The Swiss have their own Legacy Trait, Emblematic Quarter, and Emblematic Unit. Info below:
Legacy Trait: Tax Haven: -1 Money on Market Quarters per empire at peace with you; +1 Money per trade route per empire at peace with you; +10% Money per Alliance
Emblematic District: Ski Resort: +5 Influence; +10 Money; +5 Stability; +3 Influence and +8 Money per adjacent Mountain; +10 Fame on construction per adjacent Mountain; Must be placed on a Mountain, but does not need to be adjacent to another district
Emblematic Unit: Gebirgsspezialisten: Does not replace any unit; Gunner unit with 55 Combat Strength; +3 Combat Strength when fighting from higher or fortified terrain (this is in addition to the normal bonus from higher terrain); May cross cliffs; Enemy units in combat with the Gebirgsspezialisten do not receive a combat bonus from being on higher terrain (this applies whether the other unit is attacking from higher ground or defending on higher ground)
If you encounter bugs, please let me know! You can find me on Reddit, Steam, and Discord under the name uncle2fire.

This mod is compatible with my other added culture mods EXCEPT FOR the Swiss Pack and the Culture Super Pack. This mod has not been tested with any mods made by other creators.
Why the Swiss?
One of the world's richest and most advanced economies, Switzerland is a center for technological innovation as well as manufacturing and business. While steadfastly neutral, the Swiss spend a large amount of money on a defensive military force, especially focused on complementing the naturally defensible terrain. Famous for its large and prestigious ski resorts, winter sports are an important part of Swiss culture and tourism.
