And instead of making fairly involved algorithms that generate such cities, you can automatically gather colony savegames from players then run some post-processing on them.
That would be amazing, and also a real headache on Tynan's part. You would need a server and assorted architecture, backup measures for when the server is down, reliable and fast upload/download even for players with slow connections, and so on.
Then you launch Alpha 20, and full of hype you send a caravan to an abandoned town. The shape of the city is strangely reminiscent of something... You search through the ruins and find the sarcophagi of the last four inhabitants. Apparently, their names were Hitler, Did, Nothing, Wrong.
(in other words, there may be a slight issue with curation (: )
