    Hey guys,

    Is there a way to take control of one or all of the Indian nations? In Civ1 you could take control of the Barbarian/Pirate red slot by using a Hex editor or save game editor so I'm wondering about Colonization.

    When activating cheat mode in Colonization the 'set human player' option predictably only allows selecting the 4 European nations so that's no good. I could swear that around 18 or so years ago I saw someone talking in a forum about being able to do it via a hex editor but I can't seem to find anything now as any search seems to bring up conversations on various forums about playing as indians with the Civ 4 Col remake and not the original game.

    Guessing it would be glitchy as hell but would be interesting to check out and see how much I can get away with.

    Here we go.. this guy's old thread appears to be referencing what I saw all those years ago. Someone called 'EdBigHead' was able to hack the game and play as the Sioux. Wish I could find how he did it.

    Just found this hacking guide webpage that also mentions 'EdBigHead' claim that he played as the Sioux. But I still can't find his original claims and how/if he did it. :(
