Great Building Caretaker

    Proposal
    Allow the city "mayor" (read: the player) to assign a Great Building Caretaker.

    Current System
    GBs don't have a Caretaker.

    Details
    Allow players the option to assign a Caretaker to their GBs. The Caretaker wouldn't actually do anything, but their portrait would appear in the GB info pane, both for them and for visiting players viewing the GB.

    If you choose to add a Caretaker to your GB, it would cost 1 available headcount, and you would be allowed to select your Caretaker's portrait from your available avatars.

    Pros
    - This is simply a fun "vanity" addition to GBs.
    - Since you can only choose one avatar for your "player face," it would give you the opportunity to use the other avatars you've collected. You can even try to match Caretaker avatars to GB ages :)

    Cons
    - None, since the Caretaker would be optional, not required. The UI could show a "Help Wanted" sign or something in place of the Caretaker avatar if no Caretaker is assigned.

    I actually like this idea. Especially the part about matching the "Caretaker" to the GB, if possible. Fun idea! (And in proper format! Win!)

    Thanks! I was just thinking it over, and Galileo would definitely go in my Observatory.

    I vote yes.
    Would I use it?
    Probably, don't see the harm in using it or not using it.
    Great idea!!

    Would the same avatar be able to be the caretaker for multiple GBs / would my player avatar be able to be caretaker? Or would each GB and the player have to all be unique avatars?

    He didn't specify, but it would make sense that they each be unique avatars.

    I'd vote no. The badges are enough, we don't need unnecessary clutter that does nothing useful. I've had enough girlfriends like that ...

    You could choose any avatar you want, even if it's the same one for all your GBs. Unique avatars would not be a requirement.

    No, nothing interesting - I would rather have visible color band based on GB levels than some useless avatar.

    My vote is yes even if I never use it I'm sure a lot of others will.

    Actually, adding an avatar name pop-up would be a nice feature, particularly for the event avatars. I know who some of my avatars are, but I don't remember them all. Maybe I'll propose that separately.

    I'd vote yes.

    A non-intrusive(game mechanic balance wise) way to add individuality to each player's city & use accumulated avatars. An upgrade to the choose 3 achievements to display.

    No. It's about as childish as the achievements.
