In this mod you'll play as Henry Parkes - the father of Australian Federation and owner of quite frankly, a ravishing beard. His facial hair alone should be enough to warrant his inclusion in the base game!

Coming soon: Inuit, Koori, Wabanaki, Blackfoot, Cree, Nyoongar, Dene, Zapotecs!

Features voice acting by Charlatan Alley and Custom Leader Music!

COMING SOON: 3D Leaderhead!

Leader: Sir Henry Parkes, the Father of Modern Australia!

Boundless Plains to Share: Settlers found Puppeted cities. The first 3 coastal Cities founded gain free buildings that provide additional Food and Tourism as Australia progresses throughout the ages. Mines gain +2 Production after Railroad is researched.

Prime Minister: Australia's unique Great Writer, the Prime Minister will supply you with political quotes as Great Works that only Australia can produce. In addition, their mere rise to power will be enough to trigger a Golden Age!

Digger Infantry: Australia's unique Great War Infantry, the Digger Infantry performs exceptionally in desert and foreign combat and can quickly be recruited from your Workers in times of need. Doesn't obsolete at Plastics either.

Unique Australian Buildings (from the UA): Colonial Settlement (Classical), Mining Town (Renaissance), Refugee Programme (Modern), Tourism Department (Information).

Requires BNW

Music is from the Movie 'Australia'. Peace: Welcome to Australia - War: Waltzing Matilda.
Inspiration by Bamington. This mod was inspired by his Australia mod. He encouraged us to take a crack at this one.
The Lua in this mod would not be possible without the help of the amazing community at www.civfanatics.com, especially LastSword, who is a Lua master and whose advice was indispensible for this mod. Some of the Lua in this Civ (the Puppet Cities script) was written by LastSword.

That does seem quite strange. We're updating soon, so hopefully such woes will go away.

Can you only get the unique buildings in the first 3 coastal cities if the cities are still puppets?
I am currently in a game in the modern era, but I only have the colonial settlement building in my cities and seem to have skipped the mining town etc. I did annex the cities rather early (turn 150 or so, but I can't remember the era). I did seem to get the +2 to mines after railroads though, so it seems quite strange.

VB should provide +1 Happiness,
Bali Singles, +2 Gold, and
Noongar provide +1 Culture.

Seriously? Oh well, I'll bite. Have you ever played Venice? Did you notice that you're able to build every single National Wonder after only building the requirement in the Capital?

With Australia, you have the ability to rush wonders like the National college, without the prerequisite libraries and such. You're able to annex them at will likewise.

Why make the UA puppeted cities? Who wants puppeted cities even with the tourism and great writers, puppeted cities are never worth it. Puppeted cities suck.

ah ok thank ya. I was just curious beause of the little title picture.

The icon has been the waterhole symbol since the mod's inception. It was also last updated in January of this year, so it's due for a massive update with a 3D leaderscreen :)
