Colonialism 1600AD is a 17th century mod for Empire Total War. The mod will also reflect the changes from diverse to more uniform military dress, the decline of armour,  the transition from arquebus-to-matchlock-to-flintlock muskets and from pike to bayonet.

To install: Place in the Empire Total War Data folder and start Modmanager. Select "New" and Launch. The other files are patches and run automatically. To install the startpos file: install to the campaigns/main folder inside tbe Data folder.  When run with Colonialism 1600AD, the startpos file resets the grand campaign starting date to 1600 and activates custom historical events, corrects historical ruler names/ages. Important: remove other mods from the Data folder first to avoid conflicts/crashes. Also follow the tips here to avoid CTDs.

If you follow the instructions carefully it should go fine. Most important is to remove other mods from the Data folder so it doesn't clash,

I'm sure you get this question a little often, but how's it coming getting someone to make a startpos so that the trading companies and stuff can be added?

In the French language its Henri. I am trying to use the local language rendering of their names.
