Heavy Cavalry?

Post by surusI » Thu Jul 23, 2020 3:16 pm

Quick question: I am playing the GC (v1.3.3) as the Antigonids and I just became a young empire but I am not able to build heavy cavalry even though I have numerous stables. Previously, when playing Macedonia in the GC (v1.3.0) I was able to build heavy cavalry when I reached civilization level 3. Is this as designed? If it is why would Macedonia be able to build heavy cavalry but not the Antigonids?

Go to a region with Stables and click on the unit queue icon. Cursor over the Heavy Cavalry icon. You should get a pop-up message stating what you lack to build that unit.

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, there is no icon for heavy cavalry for the Antigonids. I have icons for light javelin cavalry, cavalry, mercenary cavalry, companions (sometimes available if in the right province), sometimes provincial cavalry and also cataphracts (although shaded out as they can not yet be built as a I do not have the required building).

I loaded a game against the Antigonids where they were Tier three and had stables. However, the stables only allowed the training of Cavalry, i.e., Medium. I did not see any Heavy Cav. in any of their large stacks. The Dbase shows them for Hellenic factions, so it must be something specific to Antigonos.

Antigonids don't have access to HC, they have cataphracts and companion cavalry (with increased cost)
