    I would love to buy more unfortunately play the game saira too expensive for me because I live in Brazil , I have an idea for the game on the fact that the animals go into extinction, animals could have ages of life you know ? so perhaps the players could create as a farm of chickens or other animals and sacrifciar those who already are older , and younger could reproduce and give continued , you could put species that are endangered in the world in the game know to see how players treat these animals if they come into extinction also in the game or the players would know to respect this kind , thank you.
