Beyond the Wall

  • I've always wondered why there is so much space outside the city walls in the city view map, and I think it should be utilised for some aesthetic pleasure, such as:
    - perhaps, if battles were to be extended at some future version of the game (or not), you could see the attacker's makeshift camp around your walls, preparing to siege your city
    - regarding aesthetic differentiation when upgrading buildings, if that were to be added, you could see farms expanding outwards into the wilderness for every few upgrades done to the corn/cocoa farms
    - there could be included a massive training ground and barracks for the units when you upgrade the jaguar temple to a certain level to compensate for a bit of reality, saying that you'd have a really hard time training and mustering troops in a cluddered, overpopulated settlement
    -the walls could expand outwards every now and then when you would upgrade them, compensating for the lack of space in your city (and giving space to some future buildings?)
    - or you could be able to see your other closely founded settlements on the corners of the map, for aesthetic purposes
