Any way to speed up offspring growth?

...without speeding up other things, like research rates?  I assume this is what the pacing setting in map creation might do. 

I never get to see my kids grow up. I play mostly on medium maps, because my reasonably capable rig can barely handle the late game performance on those, let alone something larger.  Subscribing to the ABC (always be conquering) philosophy of 4x strategy, I've always beat the game well before they come of age.

 

Should maybe these growth rates scale with map size, to ensure a more uniform playing experience regardless of map size?

If you are familiar with XML ...

 

Open up Program Files\Stardock Games\Elemental\data\English\ElementalDefs.xml

 

In there, there a bunch of dynasty settings:

<!--
** Dynasty stuff **
  --> //
  <Dynasty_MaxNumChildren>4</Dynasty_MaxNumChildren>
  <Dynasty_ChanceToMarry>0.1</Dynasty_ChanceToMarry>
  <Dynasty_ChanceToGiveBirth>0.1</Dynasty_ChanceToGiveBirth>
  <Dynasty_TurnAgeGrown>100</Dynasty_TurnAgeGrown>
  <Dynasty_TurnAgeOld>600</Dynasty_TurnAgeOld>
  <Dynasty_MinTurnsBetweenChildren>20</Dynasty_MinTurnsBetweenChildren>
  <Dynasty_MinTurnsUntilMarriage>50</Dynasty_MinTurnsUntilMarriage>
  <Dynasty_ChanceToChangeAllegiance>0.67</Dynasty_ChanceToChangeAllegiance>
<Dynasty_TurnAgeGrown>XXX</Dynasty_TurnAgeGrown>
Just make XXX to be how many turns you want to wait.
Copy the ENTIRE file, and create a new ElementalDefs.xml in Elemental\Mods (you may need to create that folder). In game options, select "Enable Mods"
This is untested but it should work. (:

or you can play on fast, but that would kinda not be fun if you asked me.

Hey, thanks for writing all that out, instead of just telling me to "mod it".
