    Looks great, but there is one problem, this will not fit the Col timeline. Alaska was not discovered before 1741. This is at the wery end of the game, so the timeline does not fit at all. And the russian coast didn't give any easy seaway to colonize. So if you want a historical game, this should not be included. Or else i think it looks pretty great and the next now is animated LH's.

    Yes, you are right about the timeline. So we need to add Siberia colonization to the game in order to make russian presence more historically correct. ;)

    But i guess it would be pretty easy to change the timeline to be longer, so we can add them. And we could add some new eras, like a new era called Warfere Era, to represnt the revolutions around that time. Also i could add some animated LH's for your Leaders. Maybe we could merge them into my Colonies of the New World Moderator Action: ? What do you think?

    Her they are:

    Two Frigates in battle
    Spoiler :


    Old world map
    Spoiler :


    What do you think?

    Moderator Action: Charle88 is making Baranov LH for this mod. Then we need animated Ermak. And I would be happpy if you find there anything interesting to merge in your mod. :)

    As for new backgrounds, I like picture of old maps. That would be a good intro screen for a Colonization mod.

    I like Ivan the Terrible LH, but pretty happy with Peter the Great as Russian King. :)

    Next version of the mod features animated LHs of Ermak and Baranov. Thanks to charle88! :goodjob:

    Is it possible to make it so that Russian caravel appears from west, not from east like everyone else? Preferably from north-west, actually. Don't need to explain why.

    You should change the name of this topic to represent the change in the nature of this mod from how it started.
