This mod of a file (EmperorBuildingModels) makes all your houses evolve automatically after placing them (they do need desirablity to evolve). No more do you have to give your houses food and water to get a heavenly compound all you have to do is put a few statues around.
Place the EmperorBuildingModels file in your model folder under your Emperor folder and replace the other EmperorBuildingModels file. Make sure you make a copy of the original file so you can return it to normal.
Does it give you the benefits of the Heavenly Compound? (huge housing for people), and its Cheating! lol, kidding. Do the houses devolve if they loose there food and stuff, and can the mod be altered so that it only evolves a house to just a spacious apartment instead of a elegant dwelling or whatever the highest common house is? And can the mod be used to evolve common housing too? :)

The mod works for both common housing and elite and yes I could alter it so it only evovles to a certain level e.g. ornate apartment. The only way they can devolve is if desirability lowers in the area of housing for some reason. As far as I know if you get a heavenly compound from this it will have all the usual benefits like more forts. This mod doesnt take effect on multiplayer.

Isnt one of the biggest joys in citybuilding, watching your city evolve, and struggling to keep all of your citizens happy?
Just my thoughts.

It doesn't really work. You do get more population, but for some reason most of it does not go to work. I mean city population grows, but workforce grows slower than it should be... It's pretty bad even on very high wages
