I know this is a mod development forum, so I don't know if it's desirable to post after action reports here or in the general Col forum. Let me know if you want to move the post. I think it would be cool if we stickied a game report thread. I'm curious to see how this colony stacks up against other ones people have made.

This was on 2.8.2. I'll put some observations on the mod in the 2.8.2 thread. Short comments - the mod is unbelievable. Outstanding work by the team, I appreciate all the hours of high quality work you guys have done. The settler profession is a big improvement. Look forward to the future releases.

Basic Synopsis
Wiped out the French and then Portuguese. Tried to keep peace with the natives as long as possible but ultimately had to wipe out 4 or 5 tribes. Established a growing colony on another island with about 10 settlements that could produce 1-2 veteran LI per turn at end. WOI looked hopeless after I lost 3 major coastal cities and the largest production city. Too add insult to injury, the redcoast razed our largest colony, Jamestown, our capital. At one point I was outnumbered 3:1 on Hessians / RLI vs CG/Hessians/LI. Retreated to center and fought in the wilderness. Won a large battle at Tadoussac and turned the tide of war. During WOI, really stepped up the tool/gun production and went from 77 LI to over 200 by the end. A small ragtag navy based in New Haven wiped out 2/3 of the Royal Navy assets in the war, capturing 9 of their Man of Wars and wiping out almost 200. Our colonial navy got so good that at one point one SOL killed 8 Man of Wars in one turn (granted they were already hit once). We won our independence in 1696, giving the nation 325 years of prosperity before Joe Biden comes into office ;)
