There has been a lot of discussions about what people would like to see in the game and what they like so far. However, not so much about what people don’t want to see, this is something that could be just as useful to the developers during development as what people want to have. So for you what would be a bad addition to the game or some change or game play mechanic that you wouldn’t enjoy or want?
For me I can think 2 things that I wouldn’t like to see.
Firstly, if they limited the amount of classes you could have at a time such as only allowing you to have 3 animal tamers at any one time. This would really reduce the level of freedom in making a city the way you want it to be and make everyone’s city feel very similar as everyone is capped on how many of each class they can have, this would also effectively put a stop to almost all progression at some stage in the game. This also applies to overall population don’t cap populations too low, a city with 25 people isn’t a city.
Secondly, how quickly we gain and how fast we lose citizens I don’t want to have to spend 5 hours playing before I get my first new citizen and I also don’t want them to be killed off after 10 mins. I am not saying the game should be easy, getting a city up and running should be a struggle but I don’t want to have to spend hours watching my citizens gather up food as this just isn’t fun. Gaining new citizens should be quite quick so as to get things up and running so you always have new things to be doing.
So these are mine, what are the things you don’t want and hopefully some of these answers will be useful to the developers and could stop them from making terrible mistakes that will surely ruin the whole game (like some larger game developers, not mentioning any names), though I’m sure that wont happen.
