How can we make it viable that destroying them does not lose their value, and at the same time there is the possibility of repairing them?
If this can be done it must be under very demanding conditions so that the buildings remain high value military targets.
By important buildings I mean wonders and factories.
These buildings must be too expensive and too slow to rebuild.
6000 wood + 6000 gold
To be enabled as a construction cart in the urban center only in the imperial age
It takes 10 minutes to be created.
5000 food + 5000 coins + 1000 export
Take 10 minutes to build.
The ‘Advanced Wonders’ card reduces the repair price by 20%. (In addition to your current in-game benefits)
Because of how strong the Japanese are with their wonders, they must have a higher cost.
6000 food + 6000 coins + 2000 exports.
The Indian Agra Fort could be worth much less:
2000 food + 2000 gold.
You must have control of more than 50% of the trading posts for 10 minutes and only after that you can rebuild.
In case of declaring a commercial monopoly you can start to rebuild immediately, but if you do not maintain the monopoly during the first 5 minutes, your investment will be lost and what you have built until then will be delayed.
If you exceed 5 minutes it will no longer matter if your monopoly falls and you can continue in case it has already begun to rebuild them.
You must be in the imperial age.
Note: Only one wonder or factory can be done at the same time.
How to compensate the American civilizations?
Enabling a community squares upgrade in the imperial era where you only need 10 workers instead of 25 to exploit their full potential, would make up for the fact that other civilizations use factories or wonders.
I think that if overcoming these difficulties the player is worthy of restoring their important buildings because the player is overcoming a crisis almost always when this happens.
Would you like to be able to restore important buildings lost in the imperial age? (factories and wonders)
- YES. It’s a good idea
- NO. You’re stupid?
These are just suggestions of more or less how it could be implemented. It’s just to get the idea across.
