Economy
 
something i've been trying to do in a lot of games, is getting 1 spot in my town really crowded, i've tried it on the settlers IV, wasn't exacly succesful... the best so far was on anno 1701, getting to the highest civilisation level, building a town center, and put a house everywhere within the area of effect of the town center :D altough it wasn't bad, i'd suggest dawn of fantasy has a way of getting lots of villagers in the same place

What exactly would be the point in that? Wouldn't it make your economy extra-vulnerable, because they only have to attack that spot and your economy is dead?

I guess that's why you'd build a big wall around it, now wouldn't you?

Good idea, that would make the city more realistic!

Well... Big walls can be breached :D But what I just wanted to know was what the advantage of doing such was? Or do you just like the sight?

In reality, busy marketplaces were centers of commerce, attracting people from all around. However, in the middle ages, crowds were not a symptom of lots of people, but rather than lack of space, since people built in tight clusters inside walls.

Oh, so this is a purely realistic thing? Then I'm with you on this ;)

Fortresses do tend to have their houses really packed together, however there are other important buildings like barracks and that mixed in. I think our fortresses reflect more how they would appear if they existed in real-life, as the units would have to live within the city somewhere.

also i noticed in some pics that the fortesses were very big and all the building were very close to the wall and close to each other so that kinda seems hard and long to build

Yes, which is exactly what real fortresses were like :D
