Re: @Pocus - What exactly are the rules of war?

What matters is the de facto controller for passage right, not the de jure one.

So cases 1 and 2 are true, 3 is not.

Re: Macedonian phalanx?

You progressed to CL3, meaning you had at least 20 regions and were a glorious republic with 5 tokens.

Re: Is it really that hard to have actual Egyptian and Babylonian names for the generals?

Actually - checking the data, there is a leader group for Egypt only, and it was not used! So I can certainly add that to the patch.
Babylon uses the Semitic leader group.

Given few empires existed in 550 BC, the restriction on the number of regions has been doubled to 20 ... Conquer more lands!

Re: Smaller map

There was indeed a smaller scenario done before release for some youtubers. But it ask for some significant rework as it is quite old now. A modder could probably restrict part of the map, like the regions initially locked at the fringe of the known lands, but it also ask for some work and it would ...

Re: A quick review and some suggestions

Of course, a game stands or falls on its own merits. I do own EU4 (yes, all of it). But if you compare the resources invested in 2 products. Empires is so much more. But I am sure, right now as I write PDS' CFO is shaking his or her head that I missed the point of EU4 ... the game is all about ROI ...

Re: STRUCTURES Forbidden Terrain fix

Usually not enough time to make the perfect code. Also revising an existing code demands re-testing, as even a simple change can introduce a bug, from experience. These time, with too few testers, the risks are bigger than the rewards.

Re: A quick review and some suggestions

Very nicely laid review, thanks. I agree on the shortcomings. Players mostly asked for a better AI for the provincial management though, only I see how it could be useful to automate also regions themselves.

In the Persia DLC, Cyrus II is both king and general.
Yes that's true, but the system was not easy to extend in a generic way, so only Cyrus II had this feature. But it is paving the way for an improvement, for sure. Perhaps not in this game, but the next :wink:

Re: How much food do I need to produce a new population?

The idea is that past a certain initial value (thrice the initial population count (A) or 3 (B), whichever is the max), you get an increase of +50% to the found need (C) (A) #define POP_FOOD_POPULOUS_RATIOh 300 // starting ratio where you get a penalty (in hundredth) (B) #define POP_FOOD_POPULOUS_MI...

Re: What is the best composition of an army?

You can only get provincial units from an AI if it is your neighbor though. What's the definition of neighbor? Within 3 of 4 regions? Adjacent for 2 land regions, but sea neighbors allow one intervening water region. That's a loose definition though as the distance is based on actual pixels distanc...

Is this pure RNG? Or predestined, meaning if I fail to turn up anything valuable in Latium, I NEVER will?

Thanks.
No that's not fixed, you can get extra natural resources, but with diminishing chances if you have more than one already, and never more than 3 IIRC.

Re: Newbie Question: Carthaginian Mercenarys

Merc center for Carthage only provides an equipment bonus, but they don't need it. You need to control areas on the map that provided mercs to them: Spain for Spanish scutarii, Sicilia for slingers, etc.

Games are very different from one another, from test runs, it can vary a lot. You were perhaps lucky, or unlucky, by having too many stars aligned to your benefit.
