mini-castles and messengers .. last new thread from me for today
Looking at the screenshots - I can see stuff going on outside the cities, but nothing there to protect them - are there any miny fortifications eg single towers for important areas?
I was thinking about structures that contain a few soldiers, for defense of the countryside - with the possibility that when an attack happens (on a farm for instance) that the soldiers can:
1.Come out and fight
2.Fire arrows from there defended position.
3.Raise a flag (or bell-toll or horn) to attract attention and help from nearby places.. (done automatically of course)
It's possible that any attack on the kingdom could cause a warning icon to flash up.. But it would be more fun if you only find out about an attack either if:
1:You see it happening
2:Someone runs off and makes it to the city to inform about it.
3:The bell is heard, or the flag seen
This gives the possibilty of sneak attacks.. as well the options for watchtowers/beacons for large empires..
I've no idea how deep this game is going to be.. so apologies if it's already in.
