Money?

Fri Apr 21, 2017 2:59 pm

As France I don't seem to be creating any money from cities, or some commerce/trading boxes and have no idea why?

Few turns have gone by now where my income from cities is 0, and the commerce box doesn't bring in the 20 money it used to, and another box isn't making money either. All boxes have the right merchant ships there.

So how do I make money, and how do I fix this chronic shortage of money as France?

IIRC city income is raised on the 2nd week of every month.

Extraordinary income comes in twice a year.

The presence of enemy ships will lower income produced by shipping boxes.

OK thanks, so does taking cities make money? What is your strategy to increase money as France?

Currently I: Use all the RGD I can including Runners, Export goods
Try to raise loyalty and development on cities
Building privateers to raid and make money
Building Merchantmen and send them to the merchant boxes

Anything else?

EG I'm struggling to see any benefit of say occupying Baden for example. I don't seem to be making anything from it. I can't see the point economically to take and spend so much time, effort, resources, and hassle in holding the ground.

With puppets not giving you anything either, no money, always reject expeditionary force requests...I'm struggling to see the long term point of it all

I'm just learning the game myself, but I believe...

Sources of money:
• City income on the 2nd week of every month, and yes captured towns can add income and WS.
• Merchant shipping every turn; this is a main source of income for England but can dry up for France.
• Twice a year special events for each country.
• Taxes in exchange for EP.
• Aid from other nations.
• Reparations paid as part of a peace deal.

RDC cards:
• Requisitions, an excellent way to devastate your realm.
• Plunder, done to small town under 50% loyalty using cavalry.
• Runners, provide cash and WS in exchange for 1 NM.
• Export goods, can be canceled by the presence of enemy warships.
• Smuggle goods, played by the English but also benefits the French.

Remember that NM impacts almost everything in WON. High numbers give you more money, horses, conscripts and WS. Low numbers cut the amount collected.
