Since we have a new buildings discussion thread, I thought I would start another thread for discussing changes to existing buildings. I have some ideas I would like to throw out for debate. First is the Siege Weapons Workshop/Cannon Forge. If you have Matchlock tech, Iron and Sulphur resources, and have built a Cannon Forge, you can still build a Siege Weapons Workshop in that city (until Artillery) but it wouldn't allow you to build any units because they would all be superseded, making the SWW a waste of hammers. I suggest adding Sulphur to the Cannon Forge building requirements and having it replace the Siege Weapons Workshop. The only drawback I can see to this is that if the Cannon Forge replaces the Siege Weapons Workshop, you would have a gap between the Ancient Hand Cannon (which you wouldn't be able to build if the Siege Weapons Workshop was gone) and the Arquebusier at Matchlock. I'm not sure that is such a loss. So I propose this change: Cannon Forge Requires Iron AND Sulphur Replaces Siege Weapons Workshop The second change is that I don't think that the Doctor's Office, Field Hospital, and Hospital should be allowed to coexist in a city. I think this is one source of too much health. I would like to have the Hospital replace the Doctor's Office and Field Hospital, but give the Hospital +1 health (total +8) to compensate. (You would be losing 4 health from the Doctor's Office/Field Hospital combination.) Can you do OR prerequisites on the building requirements for a unit? I would think that Doctor's Office should be able to train Medic, because that would be your main medical building for cities that have not yet reached size 13 and can build a Hospital. I would also extend Field Hospital's Medic speed bonus to Surgeon so that it stays useful UNTIL the Hospital is built. I don't think a size 13 city needs help to train a Medic. Medic would train with Doctor's Office or Hospital, and all more advanced medical units would require Hospital. Summary: Doctor's Office Allows training of Medic, Surgeon Field Hospital +50% faster production of Medic, Surgeon Hospital +8 health (up from +7) Replaces Doctor's Office, Field Hospital Medic Requires Doctor's Office OR Hospital What do you think of these suggestions?
