Round 40 Changes

  • Buildings 2.0!
    • This is a massive technical change and while testing has been done, bugs are absolutely guaranteed affecting everything from mods to pop to production, and other fun things.
    • In the spirit of forcing change (and not have legacy code hanging around for comfort), I have ripped out large swathes of code which likely has foreseeable but so far undetected repercussions.
    • Technically, buildings have been removed from the dominion class and now instead have the same level of flexibility as Advancements and Spells.
    • Just like before, all buildings provide 20 jobs and provide 15 housing, unless otherwise stated.
    • More building changes follow below.
  • Everyone except Kerranad and Barbarians start with 0 buildings. Protection extended by 12 ticks to 96 ticks (one day’s worth of ticks).
  • Starting resources food increased 2.5x and lumber 1.5x.
  • The LDA-mitigation prestige multiplier kicks at the 10th time invaded rather than after a dominion’s 10th victory.
  • Max storages removed. This might just a temporary change until max storage is rebuilt with Buildings 2.0.
  • A warning will appear in the sidebar and on the Resources page if you are on the brink of starvation, which is when your current food supply + your upcoming food net change (which can be a negative number) is less than zero.
  • Food, mana, and lumber decay removed.
  • Decay protection perks removed from Dimensionalist Summoners, Monster Head, Nox Nightshade, Sylvan Dryad, and Sylvan Spriggan.
  • Conjurer changed from -25% mana drain to -50% spell costs and -7.5% unit mana costs.
  • Maximum spell cost reduction capped at 90%.

  • New buildings:
    • Algae Bloom (Merfolk only; water): produces 80 food/tick.
    • Blast Furnace (Firewalker only; mountains): +1% units trained for every 1% of this building (max +25). If you have 10% Blast Furnaces and train 100 Magma Giants, 110 Magma Giants will be added to the training queue (the extra 10 cost nothing, but will take up pop like regular units).
    • Bog (Reptilians only; swamp): produces 100 food/tick.
    • Camp (Beastfolk only; forest): -2.5% gold and -2% ore unit costs (max -50% and -40% respectively), houses 8 military units (in addition to regular housing).

    • Stone Wall (Dragon only; mountain): +1.5% DP per 1% (max +60%), provided 100 raw DP.
    • Sunken Shrine (Merfolk only; water): same as a Shrine, but under water.
    • Tavern (Dwarf, Gnome, Goblin, Halfling, Human, Kerranad, Kobold, Norse, Orc, Vampires only; plains): increases base morale by 4% for every 1% (max +30%). If you have 5% Taverns, your base morale is 120% instead of 100%.
