Re: Campus Maritus

Hmmm, in the 310 scenario it is a Wonder that Rome starts with, which is why I didn't put it in the Guide. But yeah, Rome gets to build it in the 550 scenario, so perhaps I'll have to add it now ...

Anyways, as I recall it is a Tier I Military structure, so the option to build it should pop up soon.

"No oasis" is an impediment, IIRC! So probably a bug?

Re: Available structures seems to be missing one

Other Tier I possibilities: Copper Mine (requires Copper), Expert Stonecutter (requires Rough), Iron Mine (requires Iron), Lead Mine (requires Lead), Sawmill (requires Forest), Tin Mine (requires Tin). Quarry requires Rough, ...

Re: After 300 h: Issues and hints on Empires

In my experience, what makes the Decadence system seem solvable is the national decision that comes up from time to time that allows you to cut your government age by 1/3. Experienced players know that that decision choice should taken each and every time it pops up. And it seems to come just enough...

In-game private messaging! Followed by in-game private messaging. And then, allowing replacement players to step in to a quitting players spot. Or even take over an AI position, for that matter. As to arbiter, would be ok as an option I guess. Such an arbiter could handle player replacement issues m...

Re: What is for you the least useful overlay on map

One overlay I would love to see is the national boundaries overlay, BUT with the region names added just like in the provinces overlay. That would make AARs and stream commentary SO much better!

Re: Transactions for Regions

I agree the process may be too easy in the late game, due to the overflow of money you can get then. But I will disagree slightly on the mechanic being totally unrealistic. There have been times where entire provinces and even countries were peacefully acquired. The Pergamum bequest gave Rome the en...

Re: The objectives need to be made more common sense

OK slight modification to what I said above, which I just discovered ... if the nation really really hates you, sometimes the chance of a gift relinquishment of an objective is less than 100%. In which case, you might have to sweeten the deal a bit to get it to 100% (ie, throw in some money or metal...

Re: The objectives need to be made more common sense

The good news is, with the new diplomacy system, this is not so much a problem now. You can usually rid yourself of unwanted objectives by making a gift of relinquishing them to nation they are in. You could even ask for something in return, but by making it free the odds of acceptance are 100%. Aft...

Re: Master of Magic is now available on the Slitherine store

I have a copy I bought on GOG which runs the game, rather clunkily, through DosBox. Does the Slitherine version use DosBox? Or does it run normally in Windows 10?

Re: Mathematicians, playing Empires often makes me tired.

I think seasonal might be doable provided production turns were still yearly (ie, every 4 turns). I find that most of my turn time is taken up by building choices and production. Plotting troop movement is a relatively minor chore. So if production was limited to one season (ie, Winter), and movemen...

Re: Objective expiration

I'm going to dissent. Objectives come from the whim of your ruler, and rulers can be a fickle lot. So it's immersive, plus I like the gameplay aspect of occasionally having to shift strategy on short notice, it's a nice challenge having to adapt.
