Re: Don't know if possible....

There is a mod for Pike and Shot that updated it for 19C battles. I realise on the AGEOD board this is near heresy, but the older Forge of Freedom (from Matrix) actually has a very nice tactical battle engine. The developers used it as the basis for the truely excellent Brother against Brother tacti...

glad it works :) the reform decision is one of the 4 that comes up with the citizenship option.

Re: Once you go into decadent Old Empire....

Nope all those decadence but loyalty buildings are key to survival. I started very suspicious of them but worked out from a game up to around T350 that they were contributing something like 5% of my actual decadence. In part as I was offsetting with the eduction/court buildings but it surprised me. ...

Re: Once you go into decadent Old Empire....

for the AI it seems pretty random what the Antigonids do. its a tricky start as your capital is vulnerable, you have a load of wars so need money and its hard not to slip to old (& thus trigger the Diadochi mechanism of province loss). But if they survive, then its a very well placed faction. it...

Re: Once you go into decadent Old Empire....

usually the worst regions for the culture-decadence ratios are going to be on the edge of your Empire. Now if this is the case but they are only low on decadence not worth doing much, but some can be high (especially if you have captured a relatively large pop region recently). So, can you encourage...

Re: Once you go into decadent Old Empire....

done it a few times. There are two solutions and you need to pick your route: a) embrace it, reduce culture, pick up the -5 tokens, get the revolt, revert to stable/tier II and rebuild. There is a lot to recommend this, as you can invest in your army and gain a lot of legacy on the way to the madhou...

Re: Leader quality bonus

its your military experience - you can see this under modifiers. You want at least a score of 1. that means you have an average of 4 level 1 military buildings for every region you own. This can be made up in different ways as a level 1 building counts as 1, level 2 as 2, level 3 as 3. Get the ratio...

Re: Leader quality bonus

meant to add, don't forget that the ratio of military buildings has an effect too. So if you are below 1, it'll reduce the average quality, get above 4 and you get another improvement in the chance to get better leaders

Re: Questions about battles NOT imported to FoG2...

1 - at a guess, are you bringing enough cavalry. The edge slots are cavalry only (4 in open terrain, 2 in hills and if I recall 8 in the desert). An infantry only army is going to be outflanked. You actually need more than 4 cavalry in case of losses (common in the early game) 2 - again guessing - a...

Re: Leader quality bonus

It does - but its random. The % is in the game files (I don't have them on this laptop so can't double check). You'll still get complete dross even with a couple of these buildings, but you also get more so statistically better chance of at least some decent commanders.

you can find them in the buildings database. They are roughly in clusters in Greece/Asia Minor, Egypt, Babylonia and then some scattered about NW Europe. For Rome, I think they tend you to a Greece-first strategy, at the moment there is rarely much of a reason to go after Carthage. Ok weakening them...

they affect the average values of the leaders in your pool.
