Did Australian Aboriginals have civilizations or any other form of complex societies?

Yeah, this has got to be a mod. If Paradox is making select Aboriginal tribes as playable nations, they'd have to make every single part of North and South American playable native tribes save for the places that were truly uninhabited when Europeans discovered them (e.g Bermuda)
>>
>>11036243
Utter nonsense that a single google search could disprove. If that were the case then no one could have lived there. Plenty of plant species could have been domesticated, and as far as animals go, nothing easier than making a eucalyptus orchard and domesticating koalas, they're slow and fat and aboriginals have eaten them since forever. Then you have emus which are literally farmed to this very day all across the world, even in America I know a guy who has some emus on his farm. You're full of shit.

The nation picker is flawed. An big region of southamerica was populated by carib tribesmen, but you can only start in a specific province if you want to play as carib. Map-painting games have no actual logic when you go back before medieval times.

Europeans didn't domesticate their own plants nor animals and had to get middle-eastern migrants to learn how to do it.

You will never be indigenous you larping faggots

Whilst it's true that pre-colonial Australia had no nation states in the way we would currently define them, the arguments that they were a collection of completely primitive natives who hadn't even learned to farm is honestly insulting.

Indigenous peoples were, at large, a semi-nomadic collection of tribes. These tribes however had vast knowledge of their local environment and created some of the most fertile soil on earth through extensive land management, the sort that we would today consider sophisticated. This included among others massive controlled burns, irrigation systems, aquaculture, and the planting and harvesting of seed along with preserving and storing the surplus. Bill Gammage, historian at the Australian National University, describes early Australia as "a farm without fences," stating that "the gathering [was] the end point of a very sophisticated farming process."
>>
Don’t get me wrong, Europe had a weaponry advantage, but the Indigenous Australians had such remarkable agricultural ability to support a society on what really is an unfriendly continent. In my engineering classes, we have genuinely studied Aboriginal fish traps from Victoria - they are designed around an entire lake and waterway system, and with the tides they gradually accumulate huge numbers of fish that don’t even know they’ve been trapped. It’s seriously incredible shit.

I'm Aussie and you don't need to farm anything here. You just camp next to a fresh water spring and all the food comes to you. Abbos literally just moved around a bunch of water springs around the year and kangaroos breed like rabbits. Emus are extremely territorial and will never leave the area the food is, even if that's 20ft next to a highway. Zero reason for abbos to develop farming when food all comes to you

>I know other Aboriginal people who have read "Dark Emu" and laughed out loud. "It's a joke right", they've said to me. Real Aboriginal people are proud of their ancestors culture as hunter gatherers. They don't want fakes like Pascoe making up stories and pretending their ancestors were farmers or anything else other than what they were. The men were proud and skillful hunters, while the women more than contributed to the group by daily gather from plants and digger for nutritious foods etc
They were literally niggers on an island and I don't understand why white people feel the need to create a false history for the aboriginals.

that advanced irrigation and aquaculture you refer to was practiced by precisely one aboriginal culture that dug trenches to encourage eels. this fact is only noteable because it is unlike everywhere else in austraia.
nothing is impressive about controlled burns, we've been doing them 100000 years. all hunter gatherer cultures interact in nuanced ways with the land to cultivate and encourage certain outcomes, time tested strategies that are marvelously adapted to their specific location and context. this does not make this practices sophisticated or impressive, and we only try to pretend like they are for the most destitute and unimpressive culutres on the planet.

And to answer your question, NO. I'm not going to be racist and say it's because Abos are stupid half-evolved homo denisovans (even if they may be), but I will say that Abos, and negritos in general, have never gotten past farming, and most negrito societies haven't even gotten TO farming without outside help. I think it is safe to say that true civilization never developed in Oceania prior to European contact.

It's a game balance decision to prevent the 400th Mamalukean Australia just like Far East tribes are to prevent Portugeuse Siberia.

It would be smarter to just reduce colonizable provinces to nearly non existence or make it like vic2 where certain provinces can't be colonized regardless of range without the right tech. But this way is easier and adds "flavor" (i.e. more money for them).

>>11036337
The culture map is simplified. They got lazy and didn't want to add in too many one Province minors. If we could add all the Abo nations there would be upwards to about a hundred. Instead Noongar (concentrated in Southwest) now extends their cultural influence all the way up North.

Not to mention the way they did it is weird. On the one hand they represented actual cultures like the Noongar or the cultural, political alliance of the Kulin. Then on the other hand, Kuric (a language group) got turned into a cultural group. Are we treating language families like cultures now? Sino-Tibetan blob when?

Racism in Australia was never about segregation. It was about breeding with the Abos until they stopped looking like Abos, and were assimilated into White Australia. Most people back in the 50s thought they were dying out and decided to hasten the process by taking their children in order to forcefully assimilate them.

1. There were several tribal bands; meaning they formed complex societies and drew and respected boundaries.
2. They had impermanent housing structures in the realm of huts in the Outback and wicker-like houses in on the Coastlines. This is all they really needed.
3. They developed language, laws, schools and medicine.
4. It is true they mostly stayed connected to Hunting and Gathering, as most of Australia is difficult to till/work.
5. It is true they never developed a Written Language and resolved to keep to Oral Traditions. Due to a lack of wars, they never really required to development of Law Steeles, and thus the Written Word was never really needed.
