Freecol?  What's that?  Is it like FreeCiv?

FreeCol originally branched off from FreeCiv and is brilliant! Feels more like a sequel then the Civ4Col one haha. My favourite parts are that you can play on GIANT maps with 8 nations (instead of 4) going at it. Their project is still active and there are semi regular releases every few months. They could definitely use more help and support.

Here's their sourceforge page:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/freecol/

However that doesn't have the latest dev builds. They are here:

Hey guys,

Is there a way to take control of one or all of the Indian nations? In Civ1 you could take control of the Barbarian/Pirate red slot by using a Hex editor or save game editor so I'm wondering about Colonization.

When activating cheat mode in Colonization the 'set human player' option predictably only allows selecting the 4 European nations so that's no good. I could swear that around 18 or so years ago I saw someone talking in a forum about being able to do it via a hex editor but I can't seem to find anything now as any search seems to bring up conversations on various forums about playing as indians with the Civ 4 Col remake and not the original game.

I've managed to find an old thread at CivFantics and also a website that appear to be referring to what I saw all those years ago. Someone called 'EdBigHead' was able to hack the game and play as the Sioux. Wish I could find how he did it.

Guessing it would be glitchy as hell but would be interesting to check out and see how much I can get away with.

Oooooh looks like I've finally got my answer!

This fellow was able to take control of the Indians via a hex editor however it was sadly unplayable! This must have been what  'EdBigHead' did way back in the day. I'll have to follow his guide and have my own play around.
