I think it would be nice to have navigable rivers if only for the consistency, but if the ability to move troops into enemy territory using them would be too unbalanced then perhaps it would be best not to have them.Guys, I need your advice. Do you guys think that China should have navigable rivers just like Europe does? I'm personally torn on the issue.
- Chang Jiang was a major route for riverine fleets during the period. Gao Jixing of Jingnan attacked Later Shu controlled Kuizhou (around Three Gordes Dam)
- It is consistent with how most other major rivers are treated in the game.
- No warfare means that players and AI can load troops and potentially move them deep into enemy territory unimpeded, which wasn't the case.
- Riverine warfare in China was mostly an extension of land warfare. Naval battles were fought primarily to allow/block river crossing for land armies. This likewise cannot be represented.
What does everyone else think?
and isn't navigating major rivers a religion/culture feature anyway? What if Chinese cultures just didn't have the ability to move fleets through them
