My personal 6 Anno facts

I have been playing the Anno series since version/year: anno 1503 (2003) (and all following titles and dlc)
Total playtime of Anno 2205 in hours: 75 hours
Total employee count in Anno 2205: ~3 million
Corporation Level: 25, 40, 109, 117 (all gold)
Uplay or Steam - I play Anno via: Uplay
One word that describes my style of playing Anno: Economic


3 things I like about Anno 2205 (please keep it short)

1 Climate zones: nice addition to gameplay
2 Modules: customization of both look and utility
3 The setting: there are so many possibilities now. Mars, outer-space, ...



3 things I would improve about Anno 2205 (please keep it short)

1 Trade routes: more management like older anno games would be great
2 Random generated maps: replayability would increase greatly with this, because right now you always do kind of the same thing while in a new game. They look like copies because you are playing on the same maps all of the time.
3 The warehouse system: In 1503 (and the other anno games) you have to 'guess' your production (unless you use apps or internet data), this gave a nice extra because now it is I need x amount of that so I need y amount of buildings, done. The thrill of 'do I produce enough' is one of the amazing things that kept you going in other games.

My personal 5 Anno facts:
- I have been playing the Anno series since version/year: Anno 1602, but I gave the series much more attention since Anno 1404 and Anno 2070 with hundreds of hours spent in each;
- Total playtime of Anno 2205 in hours: over 120h;
- Total employee count in Anno 2205: 1.715.000 population and plenty of room to expand;
- Corporation Level: 130 bronze;
- Uplay or Steam - I play Anno via: UPlay.
- One word that describes my style of playing Anno: Beautification. I don't care much about economy as long as its not in red. It is important that my cities looks awesome.


3 things I like about Anno 2205 (please keep it short):
- 1: Multiple climate regions. Temperate, Arctic, Moon, Tundra, Mars? Perhaps other regions are in work for Earth?;
- 2: Sector Projects. Tundra was the best. Moon Hotel was also the best looking project ever;
- 3: Building large cities.


3 things I would improve about Anno 2205 (please keep it short):
- 1: More maps. Each difficulty setting should send players on different maps than the original;
- 2: Mechanics. Besides ship building, I would try to reintroduce the cart system. I would also uplift trade system a little.
- 3: Content. Except building a giant city on a terraformed Mars? Still got thousands of ideas.
