    Cool. Here is a list of suggestions for colonies:

    American East Indies (only had possessions in the area in the 19th century)
    Austrian East Indies (had the Nicobar Islands, plus some possessions in the eastern coast of India; in the 19th century, an Austrian consul managed to get rights to North Borneo, but the Austrian government turned down the offer)
    British East Indies
    Danish East Indies (some possessions in India)
    French East Indies (possessions in India, and Indochina in the 19th century)
    Portuguese East Indies (had possessions spread out throughout the entire map)
    Spanish East Indies (Philippines)

    I don't think that majapahit fit the timeline(if my history memory right, their empire vanished in the beginning of 16 century, while dutch colonization happened in late 16 century).And sadly, after the decline of majapahit, no empire took it position as a major power in indonesia(oh well,the dutch did it:p).Here is the list of few empire that worth enough for me, but i don't think that all of them should be added(although as an indonesia, i'm glad to see all of them:lol:).

    East Indies and East India Company is a name limited to a small number of European countries. Maybe something like The Spice Route which was an important distinction for all European countries.

    Aye, you're right. I put the name "X East Indies" for them just to give them a pattern in naming, like "New Spain", "New France" and etc. is for the New World.

    Perhaps a download link to your mod in the first post would be helpful? For people who don't visit the download database often and instead browse the forums (like me...)?

    Idea - Each Civ should get a different bonus from the 'locals'. For example, The British can recruit the vicious Gurkha Riflemen once they are given 'x' guns and 'x' coats. Just an idea.

    I like the idea of the Hemispherical Islands mapscript. But is it possible to make it so that each civ actually starts in the west, rather than the east? Wouldn't that have been where the European ships arrived? (I may be wrong on this).

    That said, I really like the mod.

    Don't give me too much credit for the Hemispherical Islands, it's from 'Colonies of the New World'. :blush: I think it is possible to let them start in the west though. I think they all did come from the west, except for some spanish missions who started in New Spain (Mexico).

    I think it's a really good idea. But I'm not really sure if I am able to do it :crazyeye: I'm still a bit of a noob in that kind of modding. And every country should be able to do it.

    There is an easier way to do it, but then the unit won't be civ-specific and you'll have to send a colonist to a native city...
