Puppet Colonialist Legacies: Histories of the New World | Colonial + Pre-Colonial civs

Welcome to Colonialist Legacies - Histories of the New World!



Australia | Canada | Mexico | Philippines | Vietnam | Boers | Blackfoot | Dene | Inuit | Cree | Afghanistan | Zapotecs


Quote:
Welcome! Colonialist Legacies is a modding endeavour started by TPangolin and Neirai, but has since grown into a community of dozens of modders striving towards producing high-quality Colonial themed custom Civilizations. Starting from relatively humble beginnings, Colonialist Legacies released their first mod in January of 2014 - the Australian Civilization, lead by the jovial Henry Parkes. Since then, ten civilizations have been completed, with some being featured on sites such as PC Gamer and Kotaku. Colonialist Legacies mods have become undoubtedly popular on the Steam Workshop, and none of this would be possible without the help from the amazing community here at civfanatics.

Colonialist Legacies aims to simultaneously educate players about new cultures and creeds, alongside ensuring that each new custom civilization has interesting, unique and dynamic attributes that aims to make the game as fun as possible.

Any feedback is encouraged and also appreciated.

-----


Republic of The Philippines - Rizal
The Philippines
by JFD and TPangolin
Special thanks to PrimoXanthous, LastSword, Vice Virtuoso and Neirai

In this you mod you'll play as Jose Rizal, a well respected novelist, poet, advocate for nationalism, revolutionary and doctor! Despite never leading the country, he is considered the greatest National Hero in Filipino history. A contemporary of Gandhi, Rizal advocated liberty through peaceful means rather than by violent revolution. In the end he was executed by Spanish authorities, captured en route to help victims of Yellow River fever in Cuba. Several titles were bestowed on him: "the First Filipino", "Greatest Man of the Brown Race", amongst others.

Special Thanks to Wodhann, SuperWaffle247, bernie14

by Neirai and TPangolin
Special Thanks to Charlatan Alley, Leugi, Tarcisio, JFD

In this mod you'll play as Crowfoot, chief of the Blackfoot Indians!

Yet he was most remembered for his contributions to the cause of peace.



-----

by Viregel, Neirai, and TPangolin
Special Thanks to Charlatan Alley, Scapegrace, Superwaffle and regalmanemperor.

In this mod you'll play as Mirwais Hotak, the much needed saviour of the Pashtun. The history of your people is one of bloodshed and oppression; the Pashtun have cried out for a saviour ever since the Greeks swarmed their borders, and thereafter major empires squabbled like children over the Silk Road routes that passed through lands that were rightfully your own. Will you strike down the interlopers and trample their bones into Afghan soil? Will your lands become once again the graveyards of empires?


-----


The Zapotecs - Cosijoeza
by TPangolin, and RawSasquatch
Special Thanks to LastSword, Wodhann, Civitar, Framed Architect Charlatan Alley, Scapegrace, Superwaffle and Neirai.

In this mod you'll play as Cosijoeza of the Zapotec, lord of Zaachila and master of your people's destinies! The Zapotecs were flourishing ancient civilization, whose dominance that spanned the centuries from 700 BCE to 1521. Their influence within the region would forever change Mesoamerican society. With shrewdness and confidence, Cosijoeza led a Mixitec-Zapotec alliance to an easy victory over the mighty Aztec war machine. Although a larger Aztec counterattack was not far off, Cosijoeza fortified his remaining troops on the mountaintop of Giengola. The Aztecs arrived, and decided to besiege the position. Quickly, though, they began losing men rapidly. Aztec prisoners were shown the mutilated bodies of their comrades and turned back to spread the word of the Zapotec resistance. Badass.

This looks mega. I've been waiting for a half decent OzMod for an age. TBH I'm not to sure about the Prime Minister UU, it's A) a bit weird, and B) not exactly unique to Australia. Have you got any alternatives to it? An improvement might be better, Open Cut Mine that boosts resource yield, a billabong which adds freshwater to surrounding tiles?

UA seems a bit complicated, but it's a genius format. The problem with mod UAs is obviously the need for irritating additional buildings, but graduating them according to the civs development is a great idea.

Moderator Action: Moved to the main C&C forum, as the "New civilizations" forum is for completed civilizations only. Also, you're more likely to get some help here .
Please read the forum rules: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=422889

I must say, though, the work you've done so far on this is excellent and I hope you get your digger. The UA is quite original and I like the artwork you've done.

Thanks mate, was just about to ask for a move. There are quite a few "just ideas" thread in that forum part though. And yeah, I'm seriously going to get giddy when Wolfdog gets around to converting the digger!

Also, take the time to listen to the suggested musical pieces I've selected - they'll blow your socks off.

Updated the OP with City-State replacements. Just realized that I have to do some more icons for the UU's themselves.

Changed PM Double Treatise to Starting a 10 Turn Golden Age upon expending. Need feedback for this aspect.

Good news everyone! Wolfdog has converted a Digger model for us! Now all we've got to do is piece everything together...

I've found someone to help me mod, but more help is always appreciated! Perhaps doing the music or any if the units would be very helpful though!

I'd also like to do some XML. I don't have any experience with the new things in BNW, but there shouldn't be too many changes (save for the Prime Minister, who, as a Great Writer replacement, is only present in BNW). I'm happy to help however I can, if you don't have enough help already.
Regardless, I support this mod and look forward to its completion. Perhaps you'd be willing to make versions for G&K and/or vanilla afterwards? I'd certainly like to be able to play it on my game.

Thanks codefreak! Could definitely is some help in coding somethings like the UA, UUs, Music or UBs.

Let me know what's preferable.

Also added pre-modern Prime Minister art to the OP.

So much progress is being made! An extra huge shoutout to Neirai and codefreak for helping out. Seriously invaluable.

Looking for someone to convert all the icons into the icon atlases and change around the alphas! Any help in that regard would be great.

As of now, here is what's done.

- Art Assets

- Leader Dialogue

- Digger Unit + Model

- Custom Music

- Various XML and LUA

Things to do:

- Various XML and LUA

- Prime Minister (not sure if using a custom model) + related Great Works

- Art Assets Atlas + Alphas

- Custom Worker

Canada Icon

I have an idea for the icon you use. I know you probably spent some work on the trillium icon, but as a Canadian, it seems a little foreign and not really reflective of Canadian nationalism. I'd suggest replace the gold trillium with just a white maple leaf. It would be very intuitive to a Canadian.

I know exactly what you mean, but Ii'm trying to distance myself from other mods out there. I'll certainly think about it!

Meanwhile, what do you think about the colour scheme?

Canadian UUs are too good. Artillery with 2 attacks straight from the start is way too good. It's like an even better Chu-Ko-Nu which are mega OP but have a tiny bit of balance in that they turn into range 1 units. Artilleries turn into Rocket Artillery instead...

Extra trade routes from GM trade missions feels also bit too much too. The ability to generate a luxure resource is very cool though.

I have no idea about Australia since there's absolutely nothing like that in the whole game.

I want to express that Canada should be as defensive as possible. Note that the two attacks only works if the unit is in a fort, city or citadel. It still only has two moves as well - so the first time you set it up, you can only attack once. In that regard, it's not that OP. The wording is a bit iffy - I agree.

We'll also see via testing if creating extra trade routes is too over powered. As of now, I'm not against keeping it.

Regarding Australia, essentially look at it like a Tourism competitor to Brazil, as they are quite similar in certain ways (both have Modern era units based on world wars and have UAs and UUs that encourage culture, great works and golden ages).
