In this mod you'll play as Ekeuhnick of the Inuit - a legendary character whose story is shrouded in the ancient past. Under Ekeuhnick's guidance, his people not only survived the harsh, barren and frozen landscape, but also became the modern Inuit peoples, whose culture has lasted to this day.

This is the Ninth mod in the Colonialist Legacies: Histories of the New World modpack that focuses on adding high quality Colonial and Pre-Colonial civs!.

Coming soon: Anangu, Koori, Afghanistan, Malaysia, Cree, South Africa!

Features voice acting by Charlatan Alley and Custom Leader Music!

Leader: Ekeuhnick

Until the Ice Breaks: Gain Food from Snow, Tundra and Ice tiles outside workable city limits. Fish adjacent to Snow, Tundra and Ice tiles will turn into a Luxury Seals Resource and provides a Production boost when improved.

Unaaq: Unlike the Scout it replaces, the Unaaq is a slightly weaker one-hex ranged unit that weilds a harpoon. Additionally, Unaaq can move faster on snow and can embark before Optics. Once the Inuit have researched Sailing, the Unaaq can improve Sea Resources! The Unaaq are expended when used in this way.

Inuksuk: A Unique Improvement exculsive to the Inuit. The Inuksuk can only be built on Snow and Tundra and not next to each other. It Provides +1 Food and +1 Culture, with an Additional +1 Food coming after Banking. After building an Inuksuk, the surrounding Snow, Ice and Tundra without Forest tiles gain +1 Food and +1 Production. Additionally, the Inuksuk will randomly claim Snow Ice and Tundra tiles surrounding it, if not already claimed. Essentially, this allows you to build the Inuksuk far away from your cities and gain Food as specified in the UA without even having to work them!

Fish next to snow/tundra doesn't transform into seal either :/

The Inuksuk doesn't seem to ever randomly claim any tundra tiles around it, despite numerous attempts at it.. the tundra is outside the territory, has no forest and yet it is never, ever claimed... like ever.. Is it suppose to happen gradually over time, or immediately?

Hello, I'm having an issue with this. I installed this using The Unarchiver on my Mac, and I was able to start up a game as The Inuit, but the UI and UU doesn't seem to exist in this game, and the civilopedia page is missing just about everything. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

@bunker, you can try to rename it into .rar and unpack manually.

Can someone help?^^

I'm confused about the first part of the UA, can someone explain?

This mod is awesome. :) It's balanced with the rest of the game. The artwork is consistent with the rest of the game. The unique qualities of the civ are well thought-out and you really do feel like you're playing as Inuit - I like that the scout can fish for instance. Thanks guys for your hard work.

IT WORKED! At last, after unpacking it and re-downloading all local content from Civ V it worked. Wonderful times, but even though you said it is compatible with Events and Decisions, it does not work... the decisions are bugged - you consume your magistrates, culture and/or gold but snipers do not appear, you don't get the gold bonus from normalizing scales, etc (you get my point)
Anybody has this issue too?

If used with the 3rd UC submod and building the igloo, the city model will disappear.:steammocking: Now i feel like a real hunter-gatherer:steammocking:
