Did I give you the impression I didn't agree with the above? "Brazilians need not apply" -- wow! I had no idea. At any rate, I didn't think this would be the basis for not including Portugal in a historically inspired New World setting. IIRC, the basic Civ4Col map includes both North and South America. Although the Dutch had a small presence in both North and South America while the Portuguese manifested themselves in a big way down in South America only, I thought the Portuguese were more relevant as a "colonizing" power than the Dutch, certainly as far as controlled landmass and population were concerned. Either way, it's arguable.
