Animals can feed themselves unless you feed them so they will stop making any effort to get thei food and will eventually die if someday you stop feeding them. That's how it works, specially for cats. They stop hunting, they get weaker. This guy is just so dumb... This is the first time I insult someone in this comunity but this guy steals content, makes money with tham and is,, in addition, dumb.I reported him.
The way I do is basically go to the Governments.json file in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Age of Civilizations II\game". After you find that what I do is just copy an existing government but make it close to a government its based on if it is like for example if your making "Elected Monarchy" use Monarchy for your base. If you want after you can edit the assets like "MILITARY_UPKEEP: 1.04" but this never really worked for me. Usually what I do is add a new letter tag, new name, and a new color. Once your done with that you will have a basic government I don't know if there's a better way but this is the way I use I hope it helps.
