Australia is making short work of its first city conquest. The Filipino fleet is nowhere in the defense of Pangasinan.

The Australian (in the continental sense, both civilizations) domination of the East Indies and what we call the Solomon Islands and the like is maybe not a huge deal for them (their core cities are, again, on the continent), but it is troublesome for the Maori, Hawaiians, Indonesia, and Philippines. You could even through Champa in there, too. I held out hope one of the island nations could colonize fast enough to build up a critical mass but, as we all know from island maps, hammers are at a premium in water-dominated regions, and a city like Ardyaloon is going to be great for needed production.
