So basically this is a thread made mostly for some fun speculation. I know that Home City customizations are just eye candy, but I kind of miss the fun of unlocking new visual gizmos with my experience points now that I’ve long ago unlocked all of the decorations for my favorite civs. Unlocking the customizations for the African civs reminded me how much I liked this mechanic and so I decided to speculate a bit on some ideas about how to add new customizations to the existing Home Cities.
Here go my two cents. If anyone likes, please join in and share some of yours as well. Who knows, maybe a dev sees this and gets the ball rolling for new decorations for our home cities:
For all European Civs in General:
-The Merchant Investor: A burgueois investor in naval ventures surveying the docks for his cargo and ships and taking notes on his log of all the new wares arriving from abroad.
-The Suspicious Sailor: a shady character that roams the streets with a pet parrot as he amusedly strokes his beard while surveying the landluvers with his one good eye.
-Pigeons: the buildings and streets of London are overrun by a flock of pesky pigeons.
-The Chimney Cleaner: a charcoal covered worker with a broom over his shoulder going to his next job.
-The Agitator: this political radical gathers the crowds around him as he rails against the system and tries to distribute revolutionary pamphlets to the populace.
-Street Musicians: a duo of musicians with a male guitarrist and a female castañuela dancer roaming the streets displaying their Flamenco music.
-The Hidalgo: a nobleman in a horse that attracts all the pretty ladies with his charm.
-The Scholars: a pair of scholars candidly arguing about their latest mathemathical innovations.
-The Salish Wool Dog: a small dog raised by the Natives that belongs to a breed that would disappear in the near future.
-The Spice Merchant: an overweight lady that trades her chocolate and hot spices at the market.
The rulers animations would be adequate to their personality, e.g .:
Iwan the Terrible would ■■■■ under his own statue, beat policemen and get drunk (psychopath)
Napoleon Bonaparte would ride a horse at the helm of a shipment and picking up womens - ending up slapping
Spain: wagons with products from/to America
British: Crows around the city
France: 1789 flags/cockades and friesian hats.
Germany: Imperial Landsknechts
Indians: a fleet on the coast, sacred cows and painted floors.
Japan: different clans’ flags.
