[A17] Tribal Smoke Signals (Low-tech Comms Console)
« on: August 25, 2017, 01:17:06 PM »



Description
     This mod adds two new buildings to the game; the 'Signal Fire' and the 'Tribal Trade Beacon'. Tribal colonies were never able to communicate with other factions in the game so this mod will allow you to do just that. The SignalFire is built, looks and requires to be refuled just like the campfire but pawns can interact with it as though it is a comms console. You cannot communicate with orbital trade ships, just ground factions.
     The Tribal Trade Beacon acts just like the Orbital Trade Beacon but does not require power and is built with wood.

Ohh smoke, there allready was a similar mod with birds ! :-)

But i think there should be a limit to these kind of communication.
Either range, only can call these faction they got an outpost 20 tiles around your colony.
Or only can call tribal faction, since the other faction just think ohh someone raid these colony and it is burning now.

And the use of these kind of communication should give a good percent chance to launch an raid then next few days.

I think that if some of your major trading partners communicated solely by smoke signals, you'd take the time to learn how to understand them.

Great idea. Must be limited chance of communication by sunlight percent and weather.
+Message and then caravan interception, so you must talk with faction's member about smokecodes for lower chance.
