I’m playing a dangerous game.
I have 5 villages of Tikis and although 2 of them are friendly enough, it is seeming extremely frustrating to advance, as they all keep demanding my stuff. Whilst this is a great idea it seems a little overdone, or rather a bit too regular.
It takes a while to gather resources enough to build anything and then they come, one after another and basically steal almost everything.
I had a save game at one point to test something.
I had traded a load of stuff for 3 scrolls to advance bow-making. I manged to use 2 of the scrolls but they took the third. So I reloaded to a much earlier date and tried again, quicker this time, yet they still came and took the last scroll - almost as if they knew! A bit weird but maybe it’s part of the mechanic…
Anyway, to keep them from attacking - they are way too strong and so it’s impossible to beat them early on really - I give them what they demand but that completes a vicious cycle and they take more and more % as I get to gather more. So is it a balance thing maybe?
On another topic - carpets.
There are a couple of items that do not have any translation so it’s tricky to know what they want. The rugs all look the same apart from their size/shape but it would be helpful if they were requested by specific name. The icon representing their request looks nothing like any of those that are listed.
I can suggest names based on their shape/style if you need.
With flooring - is it not possible to be able to overbuild existing floors to upgrade them? This may have been asked before - not sure.
As far as I can see, if there’s not a possibility to upgrade, then with the Tikis’ constant demands for tribute scaling with one’s progress it looks to be extremely unlikely that there’s be enough resources available to rebuild upgraded houses for them all. I may be wrong and we’ll see as my game progresses I guess.
It’s an excellent update to the game as a whole though, so no real complaints as such. Loving it - more difficult than before certainly and the fact that I may have to obliterate all competition (if feasible) is quite an exciting prospect
