Hey there everyone!,
Just wanted to throw out an idea to the community.
If anyone reading this is wanting to create a mod, then oh boy do I have an idea, a simple one too, for you!
(Sorry… probably too excited for this for some, probably odd, reason.)
Anyway, if anyone has ever played Anno 1503… which if you haven’t, play it! It’s amazing!.. But as I was saying, in that game, you would build settlements and in order to keep your people fed, you’d need to build hunting lodges and fisherman huts. However, when the food was processed, the only way your people could obtain that food was by buying food at market stalls that you set up for them.
So! I was thinking… You could create a class, a merchant class, that makes a Hearthling work at the already in-game market stalls and will sell food to the others.
In addition, you could add in this in with the Tier system Team Radiant just added. Meaning, at Tier 1, food could be just given out easily and for everyone. But as you raise your Tier, the more civilized you become, and soon create market stalls to sell food and possibly other items such as clothing to your Hearthlings, thereby creating a small economy for your community!! Ahh!
… (Cough) Sorry. Too much excitement.
Honestly, I just thought of the idea right now and immediately puked it back up onto this page…
But yeah, what do you guys think? Is it a good idea, bad idea? Should it be a mod? Should be an actual feature in the game? Let me know what you think!
