AD 1640 North America
If the Link doesn't work, get your file here:
European powers by now have established a few colonies in North America. Ships just arrived from Europe with news of a horrendous plague there. Everyone in Europe is dead and the land is poisoned. The crews and their passengers are the last survivors. The colonies are now on their own. No further shipments are to be expected from Europe. Meanwhile the native tribes struggle to survive and plan their own continental hegemony.
The initial setup is (approx.) historical. This scenario is otherwise intended as an alternate history. The map covers the northern continent from the Eastern Seaboard to the Mississippi, and from Quebec down to Florida.
This update includes 20 playable CIVs. Four are Europeans (France, England, Netherlands, and Spain). The other 16 are Native American nations, plus a number of "barbarian" tribes. The four Europeans are pretty even. If you plan on trying out the American Indians, the easier ones should be the western tribes and the Abenakis. The others will be more challenging, especially Iroquois, Hurons, Algonquins, Shawnees, Choctaws, etc.
