Wow, the Vikings are now real conquerers and the Inca's found cities beyond the Andes... OMG! Rhye, what have you done? BTW, a lot of those 'colonies' are not founded by their current owner on those pictures. The Roman 'Oranjestad' was clearly founded by the Dutch, just like the Ethiopian 'Nouvelle Orleáns' was founded by France. Clearly the AI now is more willing (than ever) to send galleons with units to the New World to conquer Native and Independent cities.
