What would you make of Liberia?

Sun Jun 09, 2019 7:32 am

This is intended as a brainstorm activity for fans of the mod. Don't take it too seriously.

How would you design Liberia?

There was a design where a lot of work was put on.

Just gave me a thought. 

Liberia is in a sort of unique position as far as this game's mechanics go.
It's a sort of "Half-Anglo, Half-African" society. This could be exploited, especially since it goes along with the themes of both cultures (Anglo factions and African rule-breaking.)

I saw the design you linked. Neat unit concepts, but I couldn't understand the civilization bonuses.

Would be nice to combine, as you say, Anglo and African characteristics.
I would propose for them the African Library, but instead of having 3 categories (military, civic, and the other), having 2 (for 2 parties). So age up with library techs that research a party tech instead of a politician.

How about an anglo civ that needs to research all of its politicians to unlock the politicians of the next age? XD

Maybe. Like, have a choice of techs at the town center each time you age up, with each one providing a building that auto-spawns either an American or a Kru Native once every X seconds (depending on which tech you chose), with Americans generally taking longer to spawn, but being more powerful. The regulars would be Americos. That's what I got.

It does seem like a good idea, but am still not sure how the "Invisible Weapons" would function. Feel like it might be a little difficult for new people to understand
