They tried hard to make it like it was in Europe, the idea being that the Indians would become just like Europeans.

The big landowners came into conflict with the church on this matter; they wanted free labor from the Indians as slaves, and the padres were trying to save their souls and make them good Christian citizens.

The Crown tended to side with the padres, but it was no sure thing.

So they took what they had, and tried to make a little bit of Spain. Given the distances and the time it took, it must have seemed like colonizing another planet.
What a colonial undertaking! The Barbarian, is there any possibility for you to make 4, 5. 6 larger. I think it will be a common wish anyhow

Do you have a close up of the analog "device" in number 4

Just wishes if you have the time
