Hi everyone, I just discovered that there was a living successor to R&R yesterday! Very excited to find out that you guys are keeping this alive. Thank you!! Colonization is a great game and it's too bad that Firaxis did such a lazy lazy job with the remake and left it up to the fans to fix. However, I still think the game is broken due to the way Native civs work. They don't care about encroachment on their territory at all and it ruins the game imo. They simply hand over their cities to you when your borders surround them. They never attack you unless you attack them first and there's no reason to be wary of them reacting to your expansion. All you have to do is pay a few hundred gold to settle right beside their cities and they'll eventually just give up "as a sign of respect." Is there any chance this can be fixed? The original Colonization had a threat level for every native civ and village. It worked great - you had to be aware that the natives were going to realize that you were taking as much of their land as possible and that you had lots of gold to pay for it. You could strike a balance between expansion and cooperation but inevitably there would be attacks by angry braves who were scared by your growing size. There's nothing like this in the remake. The natives just sit around to be ripped off and then happily disappear off the map. If it's possible, I think it would finally make this a true successor to original Col.
