Pestilence (city management scenario 1.16)

Post by ForestDragon »

Hello everyone. In my spare time, I made a multiplayer scenario for 1.16. You and another commander have recently been tasked with ruling a town. However, as you approach you hear rumors of a mysterious plague ravaging the countryside, as well as unusually frequent raids. Your job is to defend the city, while also reducing the spread of the plague and keeping the populace in line.

A fun scenario, although I played it solo so didn't get the full experience. (I left one side on AI but I probs should have played both.)

My main feedback would be it's just too easy, if I could win handily with one side being AI.

A fun concept, I like the idea of having to play with a faction you have to protect but don't control with the plague and everything. A concept with potential for sure, even maybe PvP.

You could try doing some self-imposed challenges, like not using any of the especially inhumane policies

I don't which ones you consider "especially" inhumane lol, but I did go the "mercy" path. Most extreme policy was burning corpses I think.
Anyway I see what you're saying, you could definitely do a lot of that sort of stuff.

Well it is fun to play, though it is taking me awhile to figure out who has plague and how to manage the city. I will keep at it.

for the first few turns the infected units will show no symptoms, but after that they will turn green.
