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.

Its been delayed because my computer recently had to be upgraded as the old video card was dying. I'm working mainly on new units, 17th century portraits. Other members of the team are working on battle-mechanics, more aggressive AI, more Protestant factions in Germany as reflective of pre-Thirty Years War conditions. I can't give a date for next release not least because I am busy on a course.

I think that was fixed in the most recent release. Make sure you have the latest version. The next release doesnt have that bug anyway.

Any idea on when the next version might release? We've been without a patch for almost half a year. :(
