Hello everyone, This new version is quite revolutionize commerce & automatic exchanges. Unlike the Vanilla, trade and exchange DoaNE 4.00 will allow you to consider trade easily, flexible and editable at any time. Throughout the game, you can automatically feed a colony in tools, food or wood, without worry about anything. At the same time, you can send your sea convoys in Europe and automatically sell the resources you produced, adding new ships and escort ships, without stopping the business. The games will be less exhausting to manage (especially from the middle of the game) and you can dedicate yourself 100% to manage your colonies and also for your battles in multiplayer. Link to video. The conditions of accession of a new era are enriched with new criterias such as religious influence, the number of military units, etc ... DoaNE also brings a new type of intermediate victory by setting up the goal of achieving, in first, one of the new eras proposed by our mod. Those new kind of victory allow us to play quick game. The quicker one is the first player who reach the era 2, that can take in average 2 hours of game (perfect for MP game ) Finally, we have boosted the beginning of the game by allowing all players to start with two ships, with a carrack. The game will be even more fun. DoaNE v4.00 is the last step before the gradual overhaul of the AI that will begin soon. This is still the multi game that will be the best. For those who no longer loved Colonization, it may be time to make a comeback and test the waters. You can Download the mod HERE (Free registration required to nexusmods). Mirror link ModDb website.
