Something need to be balanced... And some more suggestions. - My Empire

Hello @bastecklein !
A few issues I would like to share about My Empire.

Terrain yield balance
While I am playing this game, I figured out no matter AI or player, the one who has a large plot of forest around a city will have OP boost on both food and production.
While mountains worths too less productions, often just 1🔨. Rendering mountains not a very favourable location for settlement.

So I am suggesting the followings:
Nerf forest yields to 1🍎 1🔨.
Boost mountains basic yield to 2🔨.

Veterancy and Experience
Right now we can't see whether the unit is veteran or not.
Additionally I am suggesting some further veterancy ranks that can be earned through combats.
So here are the ranks in a nutshell:
(+0) - Not veteran. (Not shown)
(+1) - Veteran unit.
(+2) - Elite veteran unit.
(+3) - Heroic unit. (Highest possible rank)

Texture modding capabilities
Just in case some players wants to apply their own texture models of units or cities. Imagine someone can have a planet colonization texture set?
Maybe we can choose what city texture can be spawned too. Right now we have 5 default types - Mediterranean, Asian, European, Islamic and Nordic.
(Hmmm. Speaking of that, I also plan to add more types to cover more architecture styles, like Slavic architecture, ancient Aztec city, tropical paradise, Mongol tents, etc.)

Somehow the game is stuck
So far I have seen two ways the game got stuck.
The first one being endlessly waiting for an AI to complete action.
The second one being the visual blackout (but UI components remains unaffected), I cannot select any city or unit.
Though I don't know what had caused that, but this really disrupts gameplay. Sometimes I cannot reach modern era due to that.
Hopefully this can be fixed. I played it on mobile, HTML5 version.

High RAM workload put on mobile devices
I have checked the device performance a bit. My 2-year-ago device has a 85% RAM workload when playing HTML5 version of My Empire. Probably this is due to 3D rendering? Or other factors?

Not all AIs use Token avatars
That happened on mega map gameplay, which among 15 AI empires 2~4 of the AIs does not receive any Token avatars.

Thanks for reading, hopefully this can make the game much better!
