Many countries in America have huge indigenous populations. Altrough more religious conversions would make sence.
Yes, cultural conversion isn't genocide, but we should still be able to culture convert and displace natives and you get some new cultures emerge like metis

Finally. Now I can rest.


...no wait, not yet. Does it mean they can build Heavy Ships at DIP 3? Or is the "can't build boats lmao" restriction still present, except for the War Canoe? Is the "Primitive" definition still in the game?

Dude, it probably cost them half an hour. Writing new NI sets takes longer.

Those models are beautiful, and I'm glad that 'primitive' nations will finally get boats back. The absence of Khmer units though is a little disappointing
Seems like a good idea would be to allow conversions but provinces that were colonized via explosion should have a modifier either increasing the cost or not give it the modifiers that most new world provinces get for culture conversion.

If it isn't shown that means they look the same in every tier but only switch weapons. It's how the aboriginals will work and how the current eskimo unit models work.

Are there still more unit renders in the works? Like that of the Philippine city-states, barangays, kingdoms/sultanates, and also those of North American natives. And also I thought Dai Viet would get a reworked unit model or something..

You say it is "included with Leviathan". Does that mean no separate unit pack DLC at additional charge?
But are there not more things in the unit pack? I thought about new adivsors, new building arts, new SEA Ships, or horses? What about SEA or Polynisian / New american music?

But if it is included in leviathan, it means it is not an extra unit pack to buy? that is nice

When you buy Leviathan, you get the content packs too. Included in the Leviathan content packs are
  • the units shown in the dev diary (roughly equivalent to 2 regular unit packs)
  • the war canoe unit model
  • 2 music packs (North America and South East Asia).

The monument system in Leviathan also comes with a tonne of high quality illustrations, which is why this time we don't have any new advisor portraits.

no offensive to Dave, but are war canoes really worth company time?
Absolutely!

I believe that they stated that certain natives will advance weapon models but not the model of the soldier holding the weapon.
