Hello everyone. The question may sound dumb... But what do you think cottages are? I'm not asking about game mechanics but simulation. What do they represent? I know what the word means (at least, I think I do). I just don't see what kind of (real world) structure would qualify as the equivalent of a Civ4 "cottage". Is it rural housing? Some kind of agricultural exploitation I'm not aware of? Cottages are an interesting game mechanics, I just wish I could look for some RL equivalent when I travel across the countryside.
