What might be a better idea is you can't build castles or citadels or whatever, you could only build star forts or wooden forts depending on your tech level.
I mean... wouldn't a castle have taken decades to build? I hardly see them spend ten years building a castle and then knocking it down to stick a tiny fort in it's place.

I think we might be over-thinking it.
What if they dont knock the castle down to put in the star fort? What if they just make the bottom layer of the castle a star? In fact, can we mod that in if it's not the case? Because that sounds awesome.
Yeah we might be overthinking it but judging how CA do things and that we've seen castles in screenshots... we're probably not far off the truth :p
I think, a good thing they could do would be to add historical castles in any of the provinces that had them, this would make them valuable locations to own for morale and easy defensive reasons.
The wealth of this Kingdoms is so great that there are many mines of silver and copper which have been continuously producing these two metals for many years past, without their ever having become exhausted or less productive, thereby originating such an abundance of these metals as can be seen from this trade in them; and thus the said tonos are so rich that the King or Emperor, in order to prevent them amassing so much wealth as would inevitably fill them with the pride which is usually engendered as a result thereof, often orders them to move their castle-seats from one province to another at their own cost, wherein they spend so much in quarrying the granite-stone from the rocks, that they say it would be cheaper to build their castles of silver.
Hey, thanks Erwin! That was the thing I was looking for.
+ Rep to you, you crazy Japan-fanatic!
Oh please.... Mark my words, if the next TW is about the Franco Prussian War, I'd start spamming 5 threads a day proclaiming eternal loyalty and fidelity to the pickelhaube. I'm also partial to WWII tanks but for now, TW caters to my other next love............. samurais.
Straight from the US State Department:
"Deposits of gold, magnesium, and silver meet current industrial demands, but Japan is dependent on foreign sources for many of the minerals essential to modern industry. Iron ore, coke, copper, and bauxite must be imported, as must many forest products."
Again, Japan is not considered rich of natural resources, never has, never will. The US did not open up Japan because of its resources, hence the CA guy is wrong. The amount of historical and geographic ignorance is astounding.

You're stating this by today's standards. A natioin did not require the same resources as it does now.
There is no point in arguing about this when it is a plain fact. I am a historian, I should know. I also posted a couple of reliable sources regarding Japanese natural resources.

May you post links to them?
Here is the link from the State Department:
Last suggestion to you, google "Japan natural resources", there are a million web pages proclaiming the plain fact that Japan is not rich in natural resources.
I studied the Boshin period intensively, I should know why the US went to Japan.
Its rare to find another one versed in the Boshin War, so.....do you think Sakamoto Ryouma will make an appearance, like some ishin-ishi agent against a shinsengumi agent like Hijiakata Toshizo.....man that would be friggin epic*
Damn, if only there were duel cut scenes.
*then again, all seem excited with foreign agents..
On a side note. Kate the writer - WOW
