Building Variety

30
I love the buildings that are currently in, everything is beautiful! I would however, like to see more variety in buildings. Instead of all of each type of building looking the same. This mainly applies to houses for my personal tastes, as I would like houses to have some small variations. Maybe vary roof types, rooms and windows, add small features outside such as visual benches, small home garden, or candle/torch lights. You could also add different things to roof tops, changing chimney location or adding more of the ladder and wheel type things that we see already. I'd love to have different types of windmills as well. The option to choose between wood or wattle fencing for farms would be great too. Thank you for your time and consideration! I'm looking forward to seeing how things progress from here!

    Also (even if you will have a few types of one building) this visual improvements (small home garden, or candle/torch lights) could be part of another improvement (lvl of building).
    About furniture: My suggestion is... when a baby will born in house there can be a wood cradle - it could be more realistic and pretty nice.

    Monasteries and manor houses dictated the garden style of the medieval period. Monastic gardens provided medicine and food for the monks and for the local community. Herbs were cultivated in the ‘physic garden’ composed of well-ordered rectangular beds, while orchards, fishponds and dovecotes ensured there would be food for all. The secluded garden, or ‘Hortus Conclusus’, was associated with the Virgin Mary in the monastery garden but in royal palaces and manor houses it represented a garden of earthly delights.

    Enclosed within wattle fences, raised beds were filled with scented flowers and herbs. Trellis arbours ensured privacy and provided shade while the sound of fountains and bird song filled the air.


    • Gardens enclosed with wattle fences or quickthorn hedges
    • Trellis walkways and arbours providing shade and privacy
    • Raised beds to prevent plants becoming waterlogged
    • Grass treated as a flowery mead planted with low growing wild flowers
    • Turf seats usually built against a wall with flowers planted in the grass
    • Physic gardens with regimented beds of medicinal herbs
    • Orchards providing apples for the kitchen and for making cider
    • Fish ponds and stew ponds (where fish were purged of muddy water before cooking) to ensure a regular supply of protein during the many fast days of the Christian calendar
    • Dovecotes to provide pigeons for the kitchen, feathers for cushions and dung for fertilizing the garden
    • Pleasances, or ornamental parks for recreation, relaxation and sport

    If Happiness were harder to achieve/maintain many of the improvements above could be used as a means of boosting happiness.

    Also businesses like Bakeries could have an upgrade to allow faster baking. Bakeries should also keep their employees warm. It seems crazy for a baker to be running home to get war when standing right next to an oven.
