The Impacts of Historical Events in the Game
On the box of the Tropico 3, it says that 'History takes its course with events such as the Cuba crisis, papal visits and other actual decisive historical events'. But in the actual game, the events were only referenced in the radio and doesn't have a real impact.
So my suggestion is that in an expansion pack for Tropico 4 or a future installment, perhaps various actual historical events in Latin America can have an in-game effect (change in export/import prices, unlock new buildings, forces you to pick a side with the super powers, etc) during the campaign or a sandbox game? Here are some events that can be included (I haven't come up with ideas for their specific effects yet):
- 1952: Puerto Rico becomes a U.S. Commonwealth, The National Revolutionary Movement (MNR) comes to power in Bolivia.
- 1954: CIA overthrows constitutional government in Guatemala.
- 1957: Papa Doc rules Haiti
- 1959: Fidel Castro controls Cuba
- 1961: Failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba by the US, Kennedy introduced the Alliance for Progress
- 1962: The Cuban Missile Crisis
- 1965: US forces occupy the Dominican Republic.
- 1967: Che killed in Bolivia
- 1970: Salvador Allende in Chile became the first democratically elected socialist to take power in Latin America
- 1973: CIA-backed coup of Pinochet in Chile
- 1979: Sandinistas take power in Nicaragua
- 1983: Operation Urgent Fury, US invade Grenada
- 1988: Pinochet loose power in Chile, ending his military rule.
- 1989: George Bush orders US invasion of Panama
- 1994: The founding of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
So what do you guys think?
