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.

Re: Legacy Points from Wonders

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. So you have national traits (good or bad), ruler traits (again either), your military building score (<1=bad; 4+=good) and then these buildings. The better you have this score the less likely you will be plagued by 0-0 and better chance of ...

Re: See how many soldiers in an army...

Pocus answered this point in an another thread. Basically its a good idea that demands programming time to implement.

You can make some rough and ready guesses - since a heavy/medium infantry unit is around 5,000 men (a legion), call a cavalry or light infantry unit 2,500 ... good enough.

Re: How do you reduce the administrative burden?

I'd say not.

The trade values in this instance are the income you then get from sell...

Re: Strangeness with latest patch

the income variation might be because the admin burden now keys off both your state size and the amount of money you have in reserve. if so, it may well shift around a lot more as you have a good turn and then it hits the cash pile?

but they are treated as a variant of heavy infantry, so do you have a barracks in the region/province?

other issues, do you have the resources?

there is a messy solution - declare war on the Parthians, at that stage your Palmyrene war makes sense to the game engine, peace out vs the Parthians and that will also peace out with Palmyra.

Re: Upgrade decision for heavy infantry prevents Judea from building them.Bug or WAD?

its intentional. basically with Judea you have two choices for your army. Your specialst units (zealots etc) or a conventional regional army. Best option is to take your specialists. if I recall, you can build normal HI in a different province if that has barracks etc (but I could be wrong about this)
