Re: Does citizens suppossed to have different productivity?

It's not region unrest. Each citizen has an unrest value. The more citizens you have the higher the new citizen's value for unrest/productivity.

Re: Total War

When Rome gave me Italia Superior, I had offered them 6 times their total assets on hand, AND, 700 manpower, AND 500 metal AND 4 warbands. Rome was bleeding money, manpower and metal, they were Tier II and had one aging token. I posted that no one has asked what a trade actually is. You all seem to ...

Re: Total War

So specifically, you say it is illogical for a great empire in antiquity to sell off it's "core" provinces. I have pointed out historically, Europeans did exactly that to China and India, which were great empires. Traders used their nation's wealth to open markets, gain footholds and form colonies, ...

Re: Total War

Sure, but history is evolving. The book, which I've read several times, has references, but ancient cultures wrote propaganda, not unbiased accounts of their imperialism. I think historians would agree that the Europeans did not invent the tools of imperialism. The Byzantines used silver to pay off ...

Re: Total War

England was a small backwater group that became a nation and then acquired India. They did it as I posted, opening markets, expanding their influence and then using armies to subdue the people. France in Indochina and the Netherlands in indonesia followed the same pattern. Both were small nations th...

Re: Total War

In my experience, MP is strictly for fun. You establish House Rules, like all the big fish don't eat the little or no backstabbing, etc. Basically, Poker Night with FOG:E. Single player is the player against a machine. Pocus already replied on Steam that he would make it harder to do this. I can't t...

Re: Total War

Ancient autocracies allowed a few individuals/families/groups to control whole nations. Foreign money only had to influence these to win that control. My desire was to experiment with an extreme, but historically accurate, application of the new diplomacy rules and to post my results. Previously, th...

Short but sweet achievement bug

One FOG Empires achievement posted on Steam is for the "Short but sweet" game. It's for winning a scenario in less than 50 turns. The game is now programmed so that you cannot win in less than 100 turns. I posted this on Steam and they replied that only the game developer can change the achievement....

Total War

As you may know, several European nations for hundreds of years used merchants to gain a foothold in new markets. Then they used their economic power to buy off local rulers and expand their holdings. Eventually, any provocation was used as an excuse to send in the troops and acquire a colony. That'...

Yes, some of the factions do seem to be made more for the 1000 turn victory club.

Egypt

I won in only 100 turns, so not much to post really.

100 turn Victory Club

https://we.tl/t-tLlUKQCdfo

I actually had three times the Roman score by turn 89, but of course, the game must last at least 100 turns.

Re: Leaders

Military Expertise affects leadership. Build lots of red buildings and ME goes up. I find it more practical to designate one province as a National Arsenal Province (NAP). All of my military buildings are there, because you get a bonus to a structure's effect if you have several of them in one provi...

Re: Winkling out Macedonians???

If "their score has gone up", then they must have a region still generating Legacy, if that is what you mean by score. Go to the Ledger icon and click "Legacy". If Macedonia has a Legacy total, but all other columns are zeroes, then they have been annihilated "most". They should eventually make a pe...

Re: Rising Falcon DLC coming May 21

The Falcon is the symbol for Egypt. I would imagine a lot of chariot battles with Hittites and mysterious Sea Peoples. Perhaps some events for constructing the Pyramids similar to the one for the Colossus of Rhodes.

They should have put the notice out on "Mummy's Day".

Sarmatia

In my Sarmatian campaign, I united all of the tribes of the steppes as client states under my Confederation. In the screen shot, green is Sarmatia and blue are my many CS. These no longer raided my regions and acted as a buffer against rebel regions. This also allowed me to focus on one front (West ...
