Luxury and alternative resources


#1

I searched for a while, and didn’t quite find a topic that has covered this, sorry if t has already been mentioned.

What resources would you like included in the game other than the obvious wood/stone/metals?
Interesting and luxury resouces, i think, would really add to the game, since i want my kingdom to be the most opulent.

For example, flint and slate would be a nice addition, early on and for military, for arrows and bolts. Also for a developed city for alternative roof styles using slate tiles.

Or possibly salt, to enhance food and keep meat fresh. Could be acquired from mining or even boiling sea water.

heres a pretty closely related thread… what do you think… merge?


#3

If you feel they’re close enough, but i was hoping for non-metals and not necessarily things found underground


#4

as spelled out by your bold text… my apologies… :wink:

the thread lives!


#5

Marble would be a luxury material


#6

Various colours of wood and stone is a must :stuck_out_tongue:
Edit: stone


#7

bolts are metal (sorry just had to say). Also i would like to see obsidian or thistle plants obsidian for daggers
(no armor pierce) and thistle for poison (grows as a weed in crops).


#8

Never even thought about weeds, would really add to farms, especially if they had a use like that!

Here is a short list (taken from civ V)
-Cotton -Furs -Silk -Dyes -Sugar -Spices -Ivory -Incense -Wine -Gems -Pearls -Marble -Jewelry -Porcelain -Nutmeg -Cloves -Pepper -Crab -Salt -Whales -Citrus -Truffles

Also, imo, there should be a herb/weed/shroom mod.

Pyre will upvote anything now

Pyre thinks there should be a shroom biome
Pyre also loves civ

Hunting whales would make for quite an epic scene on the oceans. I’d go for huge ships, carrying them to shore, much like dishonored.


#13

(When water mechanics become more important to overall gameplay…)

I’d like to see some cool nautical/aquatic resources, like coral or waterlogged wood/torn canvas, from shipwrecks.

Because what else screams fancy like your own super-deluxe aquarium with its own coral reef in it?

The shipwreck could be “salvaged,” and displayed in a museum or used to create a haunted-looking effect for your big mansion…the old wood, with torn curtains blowing in the lonely wind…

BOO.

(Yep, it’s that time of the year again…)

Yep, it’s still Halloween.
