    Hey everybody, I'm new here but i've been playing civilization for a long time and have made a list of ideas that could greatly improve the game, just so you know i have developed my own games so i'm not an amateur. These are mainly Ideas for BNW but It can also be for Upcoming DLCs or Expansions. So Feel free to post anything you think would vastly improve the best strategy game ever. And let's get Firaxis to Notice!:goodjob:
    Here are some of my ideas:
    1. New Civs and leaders
    Indonesian/Majapahit/Javan Civ-Leader:Hayam Wuruk
    Inuit/Northern Natives Civ-Leader: ? (unique advantages from whaling such as extra growth) (special kayak unit)
    Israel/Hebrew Civ-Leader: King David (special religious abilities)
    Argentina Civ-Leader: Jose de San Martin
    2. Resources
    Tobacco (Allow to be outlawed)
    Coffee
    Jade
    Silicon
    Exotic Animals (Allow to be outlawed)
    Chlorine (strategic resource) (maybe)
    Clams (maybe)
    Glass (special mercantile city-state resource)
    (Have units with elephants require ivory)
    (Have Copper Give a bonus for production starting in the modern era)
    3. Great People and Specialists
    Great Athlete (Increase happiness and construct special stadium)
    Priest (Religious Specialist that increases faith)
    (Give great prophets names. I mean, seriously people. Confucius or Mohammed anyone?)
    4. Units
    Elite Soldier - 75 strength, bonus from jungle/forest
    MechSuit Soldier (require computers)
    Flamethrower and/or Crocodile Tank (Allow to be outlawed in world congress just like nukes)
    Gas Attacks (will require chlorine) (Also allow to be outlawed)
    Snipers (long range gunmen)
    (Change Name of great war infantry to soldier, the name is too confusing and long. Same sort of thing with great war bomber)
    Antimatter warfare units (could do mass destruction and could be outlawed) (for end game)
    5. Espionage
    Allow assassinations (could allow for takeover of cities and/or city-states without having to besiege them)
    6. Buildings
    Tech Lab (turns silicon into computer resource)
    Defense System (bonus against ranged attacks)
    Power Grid (extra production)
    7. Other
    Have ancient ruins work with archaeology

    Include something called organizations. Could work like religion with followers. Except some could be founded, while others could happen on their own like terrorism.


    I hope people agree with me and I hope Firaxis is listening. If you can't put it in the BNW expansion maybe put it in the next one. But here's hoping.

    PS. I would pay big bucks to get this!

    With everything. Your "ideas" are basicaly a list wich extends the already existing lists of the game. Sorry, but I find it pretty mean where you intitulate it "great ideas". That's all.

    Not everything is just extending the list, such as the snipers (I just don't understand why archers have longer range than gunpowder units) all that would do is make it more realistic.
    And If you read the beginning of this thread you would realize I wan't people to list what's wrong and what could make the game better.

    Oh and the "Great Ideas" I wasn't trying to be mean I was just hoping people would write their Ideas and that the name would get people to notice, such as the developers of the game. You do know they read these threads to look for fan favorites to add in the next upgrade.

    So pretty much think before you act. I'm not trying to start a ruckus I'm just speaking my thoughts and I hope others would too.

    Uhm, How. There really Is no general ideas thread that's another reason I made the thread, you could make one of these kinds of threads and I wouldn't hijack It.
    Listen to yourself man. You sound ridiculous.

    Either make a 'General Ideas Thread' or don't expect people to post their own ideas, just add their thoughts to your own. He doesn't sound ridiculous at all.

    Good Point. I could do that. but it wasn't Naokodemons Point.
    @Naokaukodem I was writing an innocent post and if my title name was hurting your feelings you've got some low self esteem.

    You asked for criticism when you opened the thread for the public to see.

    I agree that the list is neither inspired nor well-considered. To take one example:

    "Clams (maybe)"

    Before posting this you could have just deleted that line. Civ 5 has pearls anyway. Is "let's add clams" something worth talking about?

    Now maybe it is. Maybe you have a food system thought out, and clams are part of it. But if you do, you haven't put the work in to present your ideas in a compelling format.

    I would prefer constructive criticism. @kirbdog But otherwise, thank you for something helpful. I will consider this and start fresh.
