This is a work in progress of the forthcoming mod "Colonialism1600 AD" ,that aims to recreate the atmosphere of 17th century colonialism by the European Empires. It will refresh the the game of ETW by presenting some new ideas. The first difference of the other mods is that Colonialism will be a multi-mod. That means that the player will encounter different media (music, loading screens, ui, campaign and battle hud, etc.) in game depending the faction he selects to play as. There will be 3 different types for European, Indian and Amerindian factions.
This is an older startpos and I would recommend only using it if you have problems with the newer version uploaded on 05/05/2014. This addon for the Colonialism 1600AD mod for Empire Total War resets the start date for Empire Total War to 1600, and - when used with the Colonialism 1600AD mod - replaces many ruler names with their correct historical names and ages.
