I've now uploaded and added a link to Land of our Fathers v1.1.

Couple of tweaks, major addition is Portugal as a playable nation

the file is now at 2upload.com as it exceeds CivFanatics 10Mb file limit. (mainly due to the new leaderheads - from AOD2)
Spoiler:
========================
VERSION 1.1
========================
* changed text on "2x as likely chance to get Treasure from Ancient ruins" (bad English!)
* changed Father John Jacob Astor to +25% fur, added +1 Expert Fur Trapper (not purchasable in Europe - all units are now available in some way game)
* added King of Portugal (Purple, leaderhead from Civ4 - Portugal, pedia from AOD2/Wikipedia)
* changed Father John Paul Jones to +1 Frigate, free promotion (Veteran I) for all Naval units (to distinguish from Aviz' new Seafarer trait)
* added trait Exporters (free promotion Cargo Holds)
* added Portugal colonies (Dark purple, flag from AOD2, trait: Exporters)
* added trait Seafarer (free promotion Navigation I, all naval units)
* added Portugal leader Henry Aviz (trait: Seafarer, leaderhead from Ekmek, pedia from AOD2/Wikipedia)
* added trait Explorer (-25% horses required for scout profession)
* added Portugal leader Martim de Sousa (trait: Explorer, leaderhead from C.Roland, pedia from AOD2/Wikipedia)
* added promotion Cargo Holds (Naval units only, +1 cargo capacity, requires Great General, recycled icon from Collateral damage III)

Classic Music and Victory Condition

Hey Jenks,
Is there a way to work in the classic music from the original game as options to play in the background? The files are readily available, just a matter of working into the playlist, or a jukebox.

Also, what about extending the 300 day limit to the victory condition? Is it possible?

Best,
Snoop

New Versions

Must I download each patch/version in order to get the full changes? Are there certain files that aren't in the 1.3 patch zip? or can I just download the 1.3 patch and have all updates to all files?

Best,
Snoop

all versions are standalone Mods (if you have downloaded LooF v1.3 then you don't need any others)

If you have previous versions still saved you can delete them!

cheers

I would like to see a split of this mod. One with just the founding father balances (modcomp) and one composite mod (includes the other). Also explanations of all the FF changes would be nice.

Regarding (team-)multiplay:
I have played version 1.0 of this (excellent) mod, worked great.
Now in (the even better) v1.3 I get the dreaded "game is out of sync" messages, seems to be related to the new Europe screen.

You can try to remove Europe screen and see if error still continues:
  1. Replace "Land of our Fathers v1.3\Assets\Python\Screens\CvEuropeScreen.py" with the default one from AOD2 or Patchmod.
  2. Remove "Land of our Fathers v1.3\Assets\Art\Interface\Screens\Europe"-directory.

Thank you, I will try this and give feedback ASAP.

shame europe screen is causing an error.

I might have to take it back out of the next version

i love the look of it as oppose to the brown screen but i'd always rather have a completely bug-free mod (hence not putting pirates/africa screen in yet)
