Antarctic Lands 0.1 This is an early version of a mod I have been working on, Antarctic Lands. The mod's name is in homage to France Antarctique, a French colony in Guanabara Bay (where modern Rio de Janeiro is located), which has been included as a colonial civilization in this mod. The objectives of the mod are not very different from my previous mod, Spread of Imperialism, but I decided to build a new mod from scratch, since I wanted to take out certain parts of it which I no longer thought should be in, like unit population sizes. Antarctic Lands is set on a standard-sized Earth map, which uses an equirectangular projection, made by Matrix. In this mod European civilizations can have multiple colonial civilizations linked to them, as such colonial empires are more diverse, so that for instance, France has both New France and France Antarctique as it's colonial civilizations. Some of the features are discussed below, for the full change log, check the readme which comes with the mod. Europe South America, with France Antarctique and Brazil Asia, with the Dutch East Indies and English East India Trade (Europe Screen and etc.) Trade has been changed somewhat; the Europe screen is now accessible to anyone, and instead of having different sets of prices for each European civilization, now there is only one set of prices for the Europe screen, and thus goods bought and sold by anyone in it affects prices for everyone. The idea is that instead of the Europe screen representing trade with a colonial master, it would now represent trade with a "European Market", in which anyone could partake, but in which commodities produced in Europe would naturally become cheaper, due to the proximity of Europe screen access plots for European cities and thus their commodities being sold in the screen more often. There is also a novelty in regards to Europe screen access - instead of being on the high seas, Europe access plots appear on the water plots adjacent to any European city, as well as on the city itself (Wagon Trains can access it also). The Africa and Asia screen were incorporated from KJ Jansson's Slavery Market mod, but changed to obey the same rules as the Europe screen - although not all plots in Africa and Asia have yet been readied for their respective screen access, only those in India, West Indonesia and East South Africa. Technology and Research Kailric's Inventor mod has been incorporated, but with a new tech tree being implemented. The tech tree is still in it's a very rough version of what it should be, and will be improved. Unfortunately, I could not incorporate the latest version of the Inventor mod, which has a beautiful technology advisor screen, so I incorporated an older version with some changes that was in Spread of Imperialism already. The research yield, instead of being produced by citizens dedicated to that task, is provided by educated citizens (such as Master Blacksmiths). Multiple Professions per Building I incorporated my modcomp, Multiple Professions per Building. Having also added the Wool yield (graphics from the Westward Ho mod), Cloth can now be produced in the Weaver's House, Weaver's Shop and Textile Mill buildings from both Wool or Cotton. Wool is produced in hills of any terrain type, excepting Tundra, Snow and Desert. New Terrains There are new terrain types from Reveilled's Origins mod, namely the ones existent in the original Colonization - Savannah, Prairie and Swamp. Mineral Resource Deposits Mineral resources, such as Iron Ore (previously Ore) and Silver now require having their "bonus" on the plot in order to be produceable. They have been placed throughout the map accordingly. Game Speed The "Normal" game speed has been changed to one season (3 months) per turn; the other speeds have been changed accordingly. New Civilizations A list of the civilizations added: Austria, Courland, Portugal, Prussia, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Australia, Brazil, Dutch East Indies, English East India, France Antarctique, New Scotland, New Sweden, Russian America, Zululand Know issues: - Much of the map starts empty, such as large parts of Asia and Africa, and will have civilizations and cities added later. - European civilizations as of now start with only free colonists in their cities and have no experts, as well as few buildings start built. This will be changed as appropriate. - Although new terrains have been added, there are still parts of the map that need changing to the new terrain types, particularly parts of Africa to Savannah, and parts of North America to Prairie. - Iron Ore deposits have been placed on Europe, China, Japan and Australia, but still need placing elsewhere, notably the Americas. - Some leaders and civilizations don't have traits. - As in vanilla, natives give their cities away too easily, due to colonial cultural expansion. Some European civilizations (Portugal and the Netherlands) are doing this as well; when I find a way to prevent civilizations from giving away their cities for free, I will do so. - Victory conditions will have to be reworked, with the parent civilizations placed on the map.
