A few Questions

Post by EarlGreyTea » Mon Sep 02, 2019 10:44 pm

I've got a couple of questions about the game I'm hoping someone here might be able to answer.

I was playing Rome and after advancing to Empire rank I found I couldn't recruit anymore Italian Foot but I could still recruit the other provincial troops, I'm wondering if this is intentional?

Playing Carthage Malta has a Myrrh Emporium but does not export anything, I have Worship Sites that use Myrrh as a bonus but the Emporium does not export or supply this to Syracuse which is in the same province as Malta. Does trade of resources only happen when the resource is required rather than just a bonus and is the sharing of resources to regions in same province not happen when they are separated by a stretch of water?

That's correct.

There is no sharing of trade goods within a province, but buildings with bonuses can use trade goods produced or imported by adjacent regions.

If you build something that requires myrrh (Secret Cult - Tier I Culture), it will "pull" it to that region and the myrrh will be available there and in adjacent regions for bonuses. The Secret Cult will be removed once the region population increases to 20.

yes, the bonus goods routine only works across a land border - so its hard to build up single region islands as a result.

but as above, the cult site will draw the Myrrh as a needed good - getting you around this
