Shoe factory

I must admit to loving the factories in AoE3. Both building my own and destroying others! And that clanking sound! Might it be possible to include something like it in Mosby's Confederacy? A factory that once built can be switched to produce 1 of 3 different goods and could be boosted 20% in the thr...

Making more food

To get Food: 1) Farmers are best, their buildings can be bought to higher levels of production easily. Recruiting farmers is the best strategy. 2) Trappers are second best. Increasing a Craftsman to a Fletcher allows Trapper buildings to be bought to higher levels of production as well. 3) Herdsmen ...

If it's another $20 download, I'm in.

Would like to see a better building/person management evolve from Hinterland.

City building card game re-released

The city building Settlers of Catan Card Game has been re-issued just this week (June 1 2006). It's a great cafe game, and plays two players. Hmm... Maybe TM could talk to Guido Teuber about "Catan Rome" and "Catan Egypt" variants of the city building card game using the artwork from TM's titles. Or...

Hmmm... roads and civil projects

Hmm... Stone highway and aquaduct building (and other civic buildings) by army units could be interesting, and give them something to do on the homefront.

Were Roman Armies historicly used during Harvest?

In Parthenon you're allowed to take your Greek armies and put them to use in the fields during harvest time to increase yield (max of one soldier for each farmer already assigned). Which makes the Armies useful for something else besides just standing around preparing to die in the next attack battl...

They're all coming out --because of Vista platform change

It's been pointed out to me that OF COURSE everyone is releasing every title they can as quickly as they can... before Vista comes out and pulls the rug out from under developers. Vista was going to come out August 2006. Which would have killed software developers going into the X-mas season. Now it...

Nice icon choices.

They all make sense. Nice to see the plebian/equestrian/Patrician distinction made in one row. The topiary icon for "decorative" structures is a great choice. As a small factoid, I have contact with the government board that's trying to design a national "water-star" logo similar to the energy star ...
