While nearly every spot on the map should be able to be spawned by new players or settled as new villages, I was thinking that the remnants of deleted players’ villages should remain.

These would serve as ‘ghost towns’ that could be re-settled. This would give the new settler any remaining buildings/ infrastructure that was previously developed. Maybe they should be required to repopulate/ reestablish the warehouse and resource fields, or ‘repair’ the existing buildings.

I also thought about the ability to settle outposts and trading posts that could be located throughout the regions. These would be limited to non-military and very basic infrastructure development. Trade carts, iron/gold mines, lumber mills, etc. These can be left scattered about the map with player deletes, also.

What do you think about this idea?
