The current tribes are well balanced.
Do you really think so? I'm not very convinced...
But i am conservative and generally against changes.
I'm not conversative, but I dislike many changes, too
Why do iron and coalmines need beer, but marble and gold mines need wine?
I didn't find it illogical: The workers in coalmines just like beer much more than wine. Workers in a Marble/Gold mine do think they are working with precious material, so they want also the 'better' drink
I was pretty sure that this might be an argument for the current implementation But that somehow his hard to grasp... for me. I just used the barbarians as a blueprint.
Different tribes have different habits
You will find many things in widelands that are illogical from a human perspective It's a fantasy game...
Yes I know that it is a fantasy game, but... you know... just a little consistency...
Consistency is good, but the explanation of kaputtnik sounds logical to me. So I don't see a need for a change here.
It never bothered me that coal/iron miners need beer and gold/marble miners need whine, I rather consider this as interesting.
