I know I was a bit to hasty with horses
Now I play Altenstein, hard mode, seasons with North Sweden climate and the oldest equipment I can find that works on the map.
Challenging? Well not as much as I want and the lack of mods to make it really realistic and interesting makes it a bit to easy.
Yes I know it is also fun to play the biggest US maps with the latest and biggest equipment, but that what makes this game so interesting. That we can choose the level we want to play.
I am sure Giant will develop this game further.
Why not though? There have already been mods that allow you to pull wagons and ride horses. Doesn't seem like too much of a stretch. It would be a fun DLC for some people.
Again, I don't think that's the direction Giants is wanting to go right now.
