While I was thinking about different play styles there was one feature to me that seemed like over half would benefit or even need, and that is to send off citizens to start a second or how many you need cities. I think this would help utilizes the infinite world and the biomes that will be implemented because you can make settlements, and paths in between, to ship around resources exclusive to those biomes.
Here is how I think it should be played out (feel free to suggest things in the comments).
First you make a colony flag which will require material from an array of classes to make this a later game feature. This flag will be a different color than the original settlement flag which right now it blue.
Next you send a group of two to three villagers holding the flag and some starting resources to create your new settlement else where.
The purpose I said earlier was to embrace new play styles and one that comes to mind is a thriving economic society where the villagers trade between each other and grow their settlements from the income of foreign resources that are needed to grow. Caravans would travel between these carrying goods and gold, open to attack from goblins and militant players and cpu’s.
Another one is a military play style where you create outpost/forts and occupy them with villagers so you can raid and conquer neighbors and foes. like in the media pic on the website
so in recap using a colony flag you send villagers to start new settlements under your dominion.
