We've just all enjoyed a nice Australia Day long weekend and if you've worked yourself into a terrifyingly jingoistic national fervour then boy-oh-boy do I have the mod for you! This is Australian Civilization: Colonialist Legacies and it lets you play as Australia in Civilization V.
You play as Sir Henry Parkes, the politician regarded as the Father of the Australian Federation. He has/had a very, very dense beard. According to the creators of the mod, Australia is a "tourism-focused civilization, with strong ties to the ocean".
Here are some of the features of the mod...
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).
Australia is the first of three planned expansions in this series. Apparently Canada is next and then Mexico.
Carn 'Straya you bloody ripper, etc.
