Changes and Additions

  • Added a color picker to the game settings allowing to adjust the color of the subtitles and the available Empire colors.

  • Added a “random AI Persona” option when picking opponents.
  • Added illustrations variations for Common Units.
  • Added a system of monthly challenges.
  • Added Mod.io support.
  • Flat bonuses given to AIs in difficulties higher than normal were not scaling with game speed – this caused Hard AIs to be weaker on longer speeds and stronger on shorter speeds. Flat FIMS bonuses given out to AIs are now scaled by game speed factor.
  • Increased Main Plaza’s Influence output from 3 to 6.
  • Lowered Influence from Population bonuses from 2 to 1 in “Wireless Telegraphy” and “Mass Entertainment” Technologies.

  • Improved Local Pollution effect display on tooltip.
  • Lake Baikal tiles now cost 1 to move through.
  • Improved Shamanism Tenet choice.
  • The number of Territories needed for each Expansionist Era Stars has been adjusted depending the number of Territories on the map and which Era the Empire is (the lower the number of Territories on the map, the lower the number of Territories needed). * Furthermore, the Era Star goals are the same for Ancient Era regardless to the size of the map.
  • Culture Balancing:
    • Turks: Adjacency bonus is now correctly set at +5% of District Science output per adjacent Research Quarter (instead of 300%). District now generates 1 Science per Food Workplace instead of 1 Science per City Population.
    • French: French Emblematic District now only applies their “Science per Population” bonus when the City is in Science Mode.
    • Huns and Mongols: Increase production cost of raising a 4-Unit horde to match cost of 4x production of a single Unit (converted to Influence through buyout formula). Horde Units require 2 Horse resources (instead of 1).
    • Harappans: Lowered Emblematic District adjacency bonus to +2 per Food District (was +3).
    • Khmer: Removed 1 Industry per Population effect on Emblematic District. Khmer Baray now receives +4 per adjacent River.
    • Franks: The Scriptorium’s synergy bonus now only applies for adjacent Research Quarters, instead of adjacent District.
    • Phoenicians: The Legacy Trait now includes a -25% research cost on “Fishing” and “Sailing” Technologies.
    • Romans: the Legacy Trait now includes a -25% research cost on “Imperial Power” Technology.
  • Neolithic Era balancing:
    • Reduced Animal Lair Food gain from 20 Food to 5 Food.
    • Increased Mammoth Combat Strength from 13 to 14.
    • Increased Scout, Harappan Runner and Scout Cavalry Upkeep from 0 to 1.
    • Added a small 5 Money buffer to Unit Upkeep to give Players breathing room in early Ancient Era.
  • Civics Balancing:
    • “Scientific Facts” choice effects: 1% Science per Holy Site or +1 Faith / Stability per Research Quarter. Added “have 1 Holy Site” to event prerequisites.
    • “Religious Minorities”: Raised Stability bonus per Territory under foreign Religion Influence to +10.
    • “Slaves”: “War Slaves” gives bonus Influence and Production on Military Districts.
    • “Nuclear Weapons”: “Nuclear Disarmament” now reduces your relation’s base War Support against you by 20, making it harder for people to accumulate War Support against you. +10% Fame gain bonus.
    • “Cultural Blessing”: Added some Influence on all Cities and Administrative Centers OR a bigger amount on assimilated people’s City and Administrative Centers.
    • “Artistic Expression”: Changed effects of unlocked Infrastructures to be per adjacency instead of flat.
    • “Press Freedom”: Choice effects now either slow down or hasten the speed of Stability changes on all Cities.
    • “Political Entitlement”: “Aristocracy” now provides +1 Combat Strength bonus on Emblematic Units.
    • “Political Influence”: Choices now provide cost reductions either for Emblematic Districts, Units or Cultural Wonders.
    • “Monarchy Power”: Choices now provide buyout cost reductions either for Units or Districts.
  • Late-stage snowball slowdown:
    • Reinforced strength of quadratic Growth portion of Population consumption and lower the linear cost increase.
    • Added a second exponential factor to grow District construction costs faster when reaching higher numbers.
    • Applied a different scaling factor based on already researched Technologies on Tech Tier costs for Medieval Era and above.
  • Unit Upkeep allowance uses game speed scale.
  • Moved Upkeep Reduction to be visible regarding money impact.
