To add an element of personality, longevity and history to the sapiens I was wondering if lineage, familial trades and familial skills could be added. Hear me out…
Historically speaking, skills within communities were developed, shared and then mastered. As communities grew it became more efficient to rely of certain individuals for certain tasks. The development of skills has been neatly covered by the skill functionality already demonstrated in a few videos.
My suggestion is the ability to specialise individuals/ groups at certain skills, let’s say hunting, (possible with the current functionality) but also have entire families specialise at these skills (not currently possible). Blacksmith father could pass on skills to blacksmith apprentice son. Basket weaver mother passes on skills to basket weaver daughter. And so on.
Around this, it might also be nice to be able to track lineage. You could see a tree of all the ancestors who went before.
This obviously has the potential to open a whole can of worms but I think there’s something there.
