YMMV: Colonization

  • Unfortunate Implications:
    • Both the original game and its remake have been criticized for allowing the player to exploit Native Americans and glossing over slavery.
      • For those who are particularly adventurous (and have a computer that significantly exceeds the Civ4 recommended specs), the Religion and Revolution mod for Civ 4 Col adds in a number of historical aspects, including choices that allow the exploitation of natives (with significant drawbacks) as well as the Triangle Trade.
    • Earn a Native Convert by founding a Mission and waiting a few turns. They have a higher yield on resource-gathering and a lower yield on manufacturing work. Put your newly-earned Native Convert to work in a silver mine. Failing that, a cotton or sugar plantation.
