I’m all for freedom, especially when designing your perfect town, but find it annoying that that long-anticipated new citizen is often a footman when you’re in peaceful mode.
I fully understand and support people recruiting footmen to give their peaceful towns a certain look/feel, but without the ability to demote them, new footmen end up wasting food/bed/space/CPU resources that I’m not willing to part with. Should they be joining towns in peaceful mode? I can see this becoming a bigger issue when there are more offensive unit classes to join your settlement in the future… i.e. 3/10 units wanting to join are fighting units
