Helpful to have a really money-making industry right in the Colonial era.

TL;DR at end

honestly, i didn't notice a change (pre-ordered so got this as soon as it came out and i don't play all that much) with this DLC. calling this a DLC is a strech as one building doesn't add much (and this building sucks)

don't get me wrong though. i have enjoyed tropico since i started playing (tropico 3 was my first of the series) and i also enjoy DLCs for games such as Crusader Kings II and Payday 2 - bought nearly all of them as the content was satisfactory. HOWEVER, adding one lack luster building for $3.99 is not worth the money. If say 5-10 buildings were added in then it would be worth the my money. Even probably $10 for 5-10 buildings.

TL;DR Tropico is a game about managing money and making your people happy. Devs want us to lose money and be ♥♥♥♥♥♥.

It adds a building,a building that is complety useless since there a far more efficient industry buildings in the game and the scenario that it adds is really boring. Its a waste of time and money.

Only one mission, taking place entirely in the colonial era. The new building is a nice addition but not worth the price for the DLC, neither is the mission nor the customization item for you dynasty members. If this DLC is on sale for under 1 dollar/euro or you can get it in a complete edition of some sort I would say go for it. But otherwise do not buy, cause it's not worth the money, cause you can complete the mission and use the content in about 30 minutes.

Got this as a pre-order bonus, so no money wasted there. You might wanna grab it -66% or something as it doesn't really add much.
