    Hi I noticed you fixed up the happiness bug, good job, but i think there is stil something bugged with happiness. I got the +2Happiness temple mod religion trait, but still not works after the v3 upgrade (i got followers and temple but no bonus). it also happened me to accept a quest for getting a +1 happiness for a local granary, i payed it up but i didn’t get the bonus.
    By the way awesome works with this mod!
