[Nov05] My suggestions for Colonization II by Bradley W. Rose at powerfan@optusnet.com.au from Perth, Australia

Greetings David, My name is Bradley Rose. I live in Perth, Australia, and like you, I am a devout player of Sid Meier's Colonization. I have spent many, many hours enjoying this addictive, utterly challenging, and at times, extremely frustrating game! But I love it with a passion and I just wanted to thank you for your excellent website.

I am yet to play your new FreeCol game, but I am extremely interested in the project as I have long believed that Colonization can be improved. And so I offer you my carefully considered suggestions for improving the game. Some, you have no doubt read or considered before, but some may be new ideas. Anyway, here they are. Please let me know what you think.

Commodity Reforms

Unit Reforms

Game Reforms

Terrain Reforms

Naval Reforms
