    i've reach 50% SoL in my colonies, but i don't seem to be able to declare independence.  do i have to have the "first nation to declare independence" victory condition checked in order to declare independence?  if so, is there any way to go into my save file and change the victory conditions?

    You may want to look first at BR#3418537, or for related failures (check for crashes in the log file).

    it was my fault, i started the game without the "first nation to gain independence" option checked.  this ought to be fixed, because sometimes people just want to win the game by wiping everyone else out, but also want the option of declaring independence so they can gain access to better units.

    The victory conditions are solely used to determine if someone has won.  Independence is an entirely separate issue.

    hold on, is there a maximum date that you can declare independence?

    Yes. You set that when you begin the game.

    After you choose the difficulty, then under the Game Options button > Year Options allows you to set what years you want to start, end, etc.

    so by default the last year i can declare independence is 1800?

    Correct. The same rule applied to the original game.
