    Hi community!

    Here is a savegame editor I created to allow easier starting of hot seat multiplayer games for Colonization.
    Very crude, but works (if not, please report. A crash message might be available in the Windows Events view).

    Just drag&drop the savegame onto the window or .exe, change the players/names and press save.
    No warranty, and so on. Use at your own risk.
    As usual:
    - only the first human player in a turn will get notifications for buildings, goods, etc..
    - everyone plays at the same difficulty (except starting units and AI)
    - only save on the first human player's turn, or the game will skip the other players turns when loading after a Colonization restart

    Example:
    - You want to play with France and the Dutch
    - Select "France"
    - Start game
    - Save
    - Load the savegame in the hot seat tool (drag & drop)
    - Check "Human" for the Dutch
    - Change the player's name if you want
    - Press "Save"
    - Restart Colonization (restart might not be necessary, more tests needed)
    - Load the game


    And btw, this happens each turn when you have 4 human players and one of them has >=50% SOL.

    No, not Autumn rule - Nooooo! Poor Gems.

    This is great; I'll have to give it a whirl.
