Title: Different townhalls for different ages
Post by: Václav on December 26, 2010, 06:30:09 PM
Currently townhalls have the same face for the same city size regardless of age when it was built. So I have following idea for townhalls:

I think that townhall built in city of fifteen thousand people in year (for example) 1910 should be different from townhall built in city of fifteen thousand people in year (for example) 1948 or 2000.

That´s it´s very good idea!
I find that in openpak128 no evolution by the cityhalls gives!
More different cityhalls are desired too keep the  boredom away.

I think that it is possible to define town halls with introduction and retirement dates in the paksets: it's just that nobody's done it yet.

Thank to both you for support of my idea.

I am not sure if it can be done without change of game code. This is reason why I placed it here.

If someone paints this for pak64, I suspect it would get added. But a lot of features don't get added because people have great ideas, but no art.

Great idea indeed.
Something I had in mind, but has never come up to say it.
In history someone had already made a few new townhalls for pak128.

So, it's a pak-dependent issue.
I move this to Pak 128 board.

Currently I have hands full of work on queen of railway stations. But after it I would to try to paint some modern ones (read townhalls).

But a lot of features don't get added because people have great ideas, but no art.
I am worried about you are right - and that this one will be one of them ... at least for some time.

Oh, oh God... Where's the head banging smiley?
Would be something like this sufficient?
