This mod adds the Swiss as a selectable culture in the Medieval 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: Imperial Immediacy: +2 Food per Farmer; +1 Food per Worker; +1 Food per Scientist
Emblematic District: Sennerei: +5 Food; +1 Money; +2 Food per adjacent Farmers Quarter; +1 Money per adjacent Farmers Quarter; +50% Food per adjacent mountain; +1 Farmer Slot; -10 Stability
Emblematic Unit: Gevierthaufen: Replaces the Pikemen; 35 Combat Strength (instead of 31 for the Pikemen); Unlocks at War Summons (like the Pikemen); Costs 2 Population to build (instead of 1 for the Pikemen)
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.
Credit and many thanks for the art for the Gevierthaufen goes to kul!
Why the Swiss?
The earliest confederations of cantons that would become the Swiss Confederacy became de facto independent during the early 14th century. At this time, the Swiss were a largely agrarian people, with cows and cheese production playing a relatively important part of the local and trading economy. Pike squares, a Swiss innovation in this period, came quickly to dominate European battlefields, and allowed the Swiss to defend their homeland from Habsburg invaders.
