Here is another dreaded "request" thread I'm sure the developers love so much.
For a DLC, I'd like to see one that focuses on parks. A small neighborhood pool, a park with picnic tables and such. A park with a tennis court. Another with a basketball court. A cematery (this could also be a add on for a church). A shopping list of expansions for the palace. A massive park for a golf course. A driving range for the golf course. A campground (probably not a high priority on a tropical island but still a fun idea).
For the next expansion pack, I suggest Tropico 4 take a giant leap backwards into the past. Have the game start around 1850. This means no cars, no garages, no roads. It means a horse stable because riding a horse sure beats walking!
You'll have to bunch everything together to reduce travel time during the early days.
If you play an epic sandbox mission from 1850 to modern times, you'll have to have an occasional famine or war to keep the population limits under control.
At the beginning of the game, you start with an ancient building or two. You plop down a UN camp to take care of health care and food demands early on. Your people will build shacks on their own.
The UN will instant build you a construction building at a location of your choosing. Then you build the palace. After the palace, you can build a farm or ranch because the UN isn't staying forever. And you'll need your teamsters office and a dock.
You will have to have at least one of each of those buildings before you can start on everything else.
A blueprint for everything option would be cool to simulate the research of each building.
A railroad would be cool even though it's not really that practical on a tropical island. Silly tourists love a train ride and it's a good people mover. And resource mover.
And El Presidente certainly wouldn't live for over 100 years so he/she would have to marry and have a child to pass the power to at some point.
That would be some mighty big changes but it's something I would like to see considered, even partially.
Later down the road, maybe a Road themed expansion pack could be released so we could build one way roads and highways.
Surely the developers don't have enough content requests already so I thought I'd offer them some ideas to keep them busy in their downtime. [/sarcasm]
