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.

Ive started playing an even older starpos(the one without Scotland, but not the first one XD) and im having a good time :D Great mod

Anyway, why are the Startpos-es so...glitchy for certain users? Hope that can be fixed :(

So anyway, in my game, the Dutch Company(suddenly forgot the name) is actually just Quebec renamed, and I noticed the Pueblo Nations owned the South American territories. Not sure if just my game or intended

Looking forward to playing more! Having me a Hapsburg Civil War with Spain :D

What about the upkeep cost of the pikemen regiment? 1500 is not too much expensive?

Light pikemen are cheaper. I will look at it for the next release

All right. However, that is the upkeep of a light polish-lithuanian pikeman! Indeed, I think that a lower upkeep cost of all units should be better since it would allow bigger armies.

Anyway, thanks for answering!

Im getting a crash on turn 5 as Austria, after all my generals and such die of a "natural death"

Using the older Startpos since the newer one was just causing crashes
