PostSubject: Holidays affecting gameplay?   Sun May 06, 2012 10:03 am

So I have scoured the wiki, the faqs and the forum to find mention of this but I haven't....hopefully nobody proves me wrong and make me look like I have the dumbs haha.

I was thinking about holidays and how they would affect the game. What Holidays would we celebrate? (Boxing Day, Christmas, Towel Day, etc, etc) I know there are plenty of diffrent holidays world wide. Maybe if a holiday is quite prevelent on a planet in a game, it could slow down international commerce for a short while or something like that? Anybody care to comment on the idea?

That is a very good point. How would you think certain holidays could affect things?

Celebration of a nation such as an independence day could boost national happiness

Happiness but most of all patriotism, an important factor in my view on the national themme topic.
There should be feasts that celebrate a harvest and would boost productivity and happieness.

I was under the impression that they'd be somewhat random - happiness would get a small temporary boost or something like that.

Small happiness boost.

If the holiday being celebrated is controversial, such as Yom Ha'atzmaut, then possibly a slight decrease in stability could occur.

Visually, the culture section of the Nation editor will provide the ability to customize celebrations associated with the holiday.

Huzzah. I think that's really all that we require for this question.

PostSubject: Aware Religions????   Sun Feb 10, 2013 7:31 am

So I noticed we havent yet decided will Organisms be able to make weaposn and other stuff but whant im interested in is... Will they have religion,music,economy etc.Religion might give them a reasson to attack other species

Music might change theire behavior from Pleasent to Hard Core or someting like that

Economy might give you a MONEY EDITOR to create your own valute (I think thats a good idea) Id call it ME ( )

And I would love to see a little creature running around screaming THE END IS NEAR!!! THE END IS NEAR!!!!
And I thought you may have to wright theire bible or someting so they repeate thoose words in churches like our Churches (That would be so awesome ) ANd I thik this desserves its own topic so I made one =3

[/thread] means the thread is closed. Don't post here.

What you said has nothing to do with this thread.

Obviously we will include religion, economy, weapons, etc. Those are fundamental concepts to that stage. It would barely take much reading to figure out we covered that back in the stone age.

Don't start a new thread on this.

Please do research before posting new threads.

Money editor? No. What we already have in place determines the value and is enough.

Holidays could make people happy, but the commerce would stop for a while
