Things I dont like about NEw Colonization
Ive noticed that if I dont save my game frequently, sometimes without reason, alot or most of my gold will disappear with no explanation for why it happened.
I also find it highly annoying that If im gettin ripped off by the indians for something, say 200 cigars I spent 2200 for and am only being offered 1300 for 200, that I cant offload just 100 cigars.
I dont like how you have to take an extra turn to trade with indian villages and enter the village with your boat to be allowed to trade. In the old one, it was seemingly more realistic that your boats would trade from sea shore than pulling up onto land.
I dont like how it takes an extra turn to allow people outside the colony back into the colony.
I dont like that they have eliminated potentially 200 turns (if you play til 1800) compared to the old game that gave autumn and spring seasons after 1600. Game seems too fast paced now.
Privateers are slow as heck without Navigation veterancy, they use to get 8 moves, now they only get 4.
Gold is a lot harder to earn than it use to be in original colonization, now that Indian villages have actual limits on how much gold they carry and you cant negotiate a higher price for goods or sell only 100 of an item when you have 200+ in your ships holds.
Lots of little annoyances that take away from the gameplay IMO compared to the old one.
Oh another one, where is the fountain of youth? My favorite thing to find in ruins is seemingly not in the game.
Soundtrack sucks compared to the original. Id rather they have uploaded all of the original soundtrack than force me to listen to this ****py new one. I turn on my own music when i play, something I never did when I played the original.
Much slower paced game than the original.
