Had another good idea (thats 2 this year!)..... Why not allow the Civs that are barbarian friendly have a special sort of settler unit that allows them to build barbarian cites??? This would add a whole new dimension to them and allow a sort of covert war. Find some prime land near an enemy and build a barbarian city that would harry you opposition. Being at pice with them would also allow you to defend it in the begining to allow it to grow. Would the coding be too diff? or could it be done as a normal build that switches to barbarian control straight away? These could be limited (like Kruio cities) to say 5 on a huge map, or make them very expensive to produce, or need a later technology.. What do people think???
