I think they should spawn 1788 if they were to spawn, gives them more time.Australia: Spawn 1901
Not New Zealand as its not Australian territory and never has been, if you are referring to its invitation to join Australia then why not also Samoa which was also offered. If it has the 1788 start date then by 1901. Plus wont Britain settle much of Australia by 1901.UHV 1: Tame the Outback -- Settle all (or X% of if the desert can't be settled) of modern Australia, New Zealand, and Tasmania and connect every city in mainland Australia to the capital by road by 1975
I like the premise but as an Australian, i've never heard of gunfire breakfast. Just name it ANZACS.UHV 2: Gunfire Breakfast -- Gift 25 industrial era or later units to the U.K. by 1950. Gift 50 industrial era or later units to the U.S. by 2000
Get a different UHV, bluey has nearly as many views. We're not nearly a worldwide cultural icon many other countries have more cultural influence. Additionally 7 countries have hosted more olympics than us. Finally no one city is culturally dominant over Australia so have one city with 10,000 culture is kinda weird. Perhaps we need something to represent theUHV 3: The Golden Logie -- Build the Olympics, the Sydney Opera House, and have one city with 10,000 culture by 2000.
Logic: The Logies are Australian Television Awards, and the Golden Logie is given to the most popular television personality in Australia. Since this would be the cultural hub, it's a clever play on an Australian cultural object. The objective is based on Australian TV culture's worldwide acclaim, the Sydney Opera House's iconic status, and Sydney's place as host of the 2000 Olympic Games. This objective will make objectives 1 and 2 more difficult by forcing Australia's capital to focus on culture.
I'd have gone for amphibious and some attack bonus, to reference Gallipoli, but mechanically that is a good idea.UU: Digger -- Replaces the Infantry and comes with +25% city defense built-in. This will help Australia to defend itself while it ships all its military off to Britain and America.
I like a few of your ideas but others Im not a fan of. I do really like the mechanic of the second UHV. Im not sure Australia needs to be needs to be in the game, I don't think its influential enough globally to be in a Rhyes and Fall mod. That being said there are a few civs currently in the mod that don't make that cut either.
