Land of our Fathers v1.1 2016-10-05

Land of our Fathers v1.1

  1. jenks

    Land of our Fathers v1.1
    An historical mod of the Founding Fathers of Civilization IV: Colonization
    Land of our Fathers v1.1: released 5th December 2008 16Mb - on 2shared.com (click the 'click here' link bottom right part of screen)
    Land of our Fathers v1.0: released 1st December 2008 2Mb (no Portugal leaderheads!) - on CivFanatics

    Mod summary v1.1:
    * Strategic decisions (all of the Founding Fathers have now been granted usefulness in-game so are more balanced)
    * Historical accuracy (Hernan Cortes 'famed conquistador and slayer of the Aztecs' no longer gives you a free stockade, pilgrim leader William Brewster no longer gives a discount when buying indian land)
    * Play as Portugal (now with Portuguese leaders Henry Aviz and Martim de Sousa)
    * Improved AI (the computer no longer takes only the weak Fathers which you refuse)
    * Aggressive natives (untrained colonist religious missions fail more often, and there are less modifiers to Indian relations)
    * Religious migration (crosses, churches and cathedrals are now all easier to produce & focus upon, so migration has more value)
    * Harvest raw materials (no nearby villages training planters for that prime resource near your town? Get the corresponding trade Father and bring one over from Europe)
    * The 'French Intervention' (at some expense and likely late in the War of Independance, Founding Father Benjamin Franklin will now bring reinforcements from Europe)
