You can't legally license the binaries you provided under the GPL, because you have no rights to the original game .exe. Those rights belong either to GoG and/or Firaxis.
All in all, even a 5 minute search of the web would have revealed how similar projects like OpenRA or OpenTTD, that even reversed whole game engines, manage their licensing. They've been doing fine under GPL for 10 years now, and that's the way it's going to stay.
Takedowns can affect other .exe patches, i.e. Yitzi, Scient, Pracx, if GoG or Firaxis gets interested. Trying to make it look more kosher, is about more than just your own work. Historically, nobody else has ever been claiming a license on anything. They just have offered patches, and have not typically offered source code to go with the patches.
Now, any kind of implication I would be claiming copyrighted Firaxis content as my own is not true. If people have an issue with the way licensing is presented, it's really easy to add the trademark clauses excluding any Firaxis content from the mod's licensing, which is what I'm probably going to do. Other than that, there's no real issue here.
Now to get back on topic,
I will drop the Explore, Discover, Build, Conquer weights issue for now. Having these work correctly is critical to my own modding work however, and Induktio's patch is designed to be used with other mods.
