Huge colony improvements

Is this a good idea?

  1. Yes! I hope they add this!

  2. No! It's stupid!

  3. Who cares? They don't care about this game anymore and the console version will never come out!

    Maybe Chucklefish Games could make a new colony update that adds more blocks like some coloured ones for pixel art and npc's like the tailor (or however it's called) so clothing from different races isn't as rare.
    The update could add a new colony system:
    When you make your first couple of homes the background could feature some houses. When the player expands his colony, more homes will appear in the background.
    You could stack homes and the game detects it as a tower.

    Depending on the blocks used and types of npc's that live in your mansion/house/tower the style of the buildings in the background could change.
    Tall glitch buildings could make the background feature Rapunzel styled towers or evil towers depending on block colour.
    Mansion shapes spawn castles and house shapes spawn smaller peasant homes in the background, while a human tower could give you a skyscraper, mansions spawn schools, museums or just mansions, etc.
    The different races and block pallettes make differently themed buildings.

    Maybe there could be an architect npc that gives you building blocks/quests/blueprints and rewards you for making a bigger colony.
    The background buildings could shift if you walk into a differently styled area of your colony.
    The background styles could be: stone age, (mostly floran and fenerox) Scottland of course, (for the alpaca's) jungle/temple, (for the avians) city, future utopia or distopia, etc. But my two favourites are: retro future (cool future buildings on the ground and higher up you could see some of those awesome curvy floating buildings. And ancient/modern/future Japan.
    Why Japan and not China or Korea? Because Japan is the only one of those who actually built a lot of taller buildings... and they have torii's... those things are cool...

    But these ideas could attract some new players and bring back old ones. The colony deeds might have to be smaller though…
    If they can make a proper rewarding system with this, it could give the game a lot more replayability!

    Can you please format this? It's very hard to read.

    Hehe a carpenter type of NPC will be great if they can somehow let it build it's own house by giving it the materials and pixels to hire them...(FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T BUILD LIKE ME)

    I hope this tekst layout is a little better!
