I just had and idea for what you could use trees for.
So, I was watching one of the livestreams where Tom was talking about using different kinds of materials, trees and so on. So I started thinking, what else could you use trees for than just building and carpenters.
My idea was that your mason could make a hook and your weaver could make a rope and then you’d combine them and create a grappling hook or something. This could then be used e.g. for scaling walls (enemy or own) or allowing your soldiers / spies… to climb up trees and set up like a hidden scouting platform or something.
The platform would hidden from enemy sight until someone on the platform makes a noise of if the enemy has scouts or something with them.
These platforms could be of importance from a strategic point of view in the sense that you’d be able to post scouts further from your city and close to enemy camps. You could like sneak up to their cams during night and then stay in the tree and observe what the enemy is doing and report back so you’ll be able to prepare your defenses or assault them when they are out hunting or something.
The drawback to this is obviously that your food could run out, the enemy has scouts that spots your scouts or something similar.
What does everyone else think? Is this something you’d like to see in game?
