    We've talked about trade routes... what if

    What if, much like building roads, or trails from tribal area to tribal area. How cool would it be to build a rail system, you would not have to have steam engines you could have carts that are man powered to move goods from one area to another, you could even build a rail to the forest to move logs, or an area where there was a mine of ore. Once animals become tame, you could get a horse or cow to pull the cart along the rail.

    This would be a great idea for a year or two down the track, no pun intended

    I would like to see normal donkey and horse drawn carts in before putting them on rails.

    agreed, just an idea. Thought it would be cool, perhaps even be able to tunnel through some mountains to lay a track, for a trade / transportation route or a mining camp, if the engine would allow for that in the future.

    As the world expands in size I can see this becoming more practical. Not sure if Xsyon will have mounts, but I'd love to see horse drawn wagons I suppose it will, but sometimes i feel like the current world space is too small and tribes will be shoulder to shoulder. Perhaps the distance is just right though.

    Talking about carts and such, and where this game is generally locate, i would think Oxen would be the choice animal for hauling.

    why do you guys want to do trade routes so much? you'll lose alot of stuff it won't be worth your time

    If your tribe discovers a Copper deposit, and another discovers a Tin deposit, and you need Tin and Copper to make Bronze, and Bronze being stronger then both Tin or Copper alone, wouldn't you want to set up a trade so that you could trade some Copper for Tin and vis-versa in order to make some Bronze goods? This is of course just an example but you get my meaning.

    I guess but you would have to be really sneaky, if you use a path it would be easy to find you plus with so many members in your tribe I could setup deals with people to tell me where you guys are and you'll never know who told me but gl with the trade routes
