    Hello there, I'm glad you stumbled on this mod. As you should be able to tell, this mod is all about America. Currently the mod is still very much a work in progress and help or feedback would be greatly appreciated. So download it if it intrigues you and enjoy :).

    The American Mod!(v1.1)​



    Any thoughts, suggestions?

    In any case I hope my ideas appeal to some people and I could maybe get a partner or two so this isn't such a huge project.

    Ok, how would I easily combine a bunch of python and XML files for tsentom's custom traits? I've heard of winmerge, I assume it's free and safe, but there seem to be many places to download it, which is the correct one?

    Via the place that makes it: WinMerge.org. (The download link there actually gets it from the SourceForge project, so you could go directly there too.)

    (Slightly off topic) Is there any good Python/XML merging tool for Macs?

    Well, here is the first "version" of the mod, with the Union mostly fleshed out. I'm just debating whether of not to keep the dummy tech unlocks or just UU/UB like usual.

    Enjoy, my goal is to get Confederates tomorrow.

    Well, only industrialists, I didn't like the Grain Silo as a UB for the inventors nor a "cheap ICBM" as a UU. Any suggestions? Planned leaders are Orville Wright, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Cyrus McCormick, Samuel Colt, Samuel Morse, Benjamin Franklinm Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell (even though he wasn't American, I'm not so sure if I'll include him).

    Here's the outline for Inventors/Scientists

    Orville Wright (Sci, Exp (in a sense he "expanded" into the air, could be changed))
    J. Robert Oppenheimer (Pasifist, Phi)
    Cyrus McCormick (Agr, Ind)
    Samuel Colt (Ind, Sci)
    Samuel Morse (Cre, Fin)
    Benjamin Franklin (Cha, Nationalistic)
    Thomas Edison (Agg, Fin)
    Alexander Graham Bell (maybe, he's not really American though)

    UUs:
    Early Airplane (maybe renamed to Kitty Hawk): Airship, greater stength
    Peacemaker: Cavalry, 2 more base strength (couldn't think of something else with revolvers)
    I need one more UU then, any suggestions?

    UBs:
    Telegraph Lines: Broadcast Tower (may need changing) +1 trade route
    Edison's Laboratory: Laboratory, no unhealthiness, +10% gold
    Still need another UB, I was thinking a grain silo, but nobody here invented it, and it really isn't connected to any leader.

    So if you have suggestions, help would be appreciated :)

    Well, UU and UB help would be good, and I'm going to need custom art (which I hope to learn how to do soon) it shouldn't be too difficult, I just have a bit of modder's block.

    Automobile is a UU for the industrialists (because of Henry Ford). And I believe I have Edison's Laboratory for a UB for the inventors.

    Also, thanks for 25 downloads on my not-anywwhere-close-to-being-done mod :).

    May I suggest some Religious leaders?
    Elizabeth Ann Seton (1st saint from America)
    Joseph Smith (Mormonism founder)

    Do you want contemporary/fictional/legendary people too?

    I was actually going to add those people :).

    I'm trying to stay pretty realistic with leaders, but are you suggesting people like John Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, etc? Because I might include that. If it's a character in literature I could include them in the UU/UB section for writers.
