Hello I'm new here, I missed the kick starter but I will buy early access or preorder, everything in the game sounds great however I'm very interest erred in the money side. I heard you can buy buildings, just wondering what else you can do. Here are few ideas,Slash things that may be in the game that I do not know about.
I know you can buy properties which is great, but what can you do with them. Can you hire staff to look after your house. Can you modify it. I think a house system with people looking after your house would be great. Some games buying a house is an empty experience you bought the biggest house in the world, but you had no servants and did nothing that made you truly feel rich.
I heard there were farms and that you can buy them, just wondering if you could hire people to manage then. So that the farm would give you an income. It would be a cool system if prices were based on supply and demand so when food is scarce in the winter you sell, and in the summer you buy. You could leave the farm to the ai which would not use things like seasons for extra profit. Or you could micromanage it yourself drawing in a larger profit based on supply and demand.
Selling at shops I had always thought was awkward in games. Having shopkeepers sell your goods to the village would be great. This system would be very automated and it would add to the business end of frontiers.
The other ideas were realistic and possibly already in the game caravan system I doubt is in the game however I think it would be really good to be able to send caravans off to other cities first if ai did this it would populate the road more, an add a more trad feel to the game.
Bandit and thieves
With all these ways to make money there needs to be ways to lose money. This could brake into stores or into houses. Bandits could take a toll from caravans. Bandits and thieves will not necessary resort to combat to take goods.
These ideas/ things I don't know about fronters would really add to the game, but if they are not there consider them in a dlc.
Thank you for your time.
