Round 50 Changes

General

  • Improvements 2.0
    • Beta test of Improvement 2.0: there are no known issues/bugs. As of writing, left to do:
      • Support for permanent and temporary improvements damage.
      • Masonries.
      • Unit-pairing and other perks reliant on improvements.
    • Improvements are aspects of your dominion that the government (you) invests resources into. They are not physical manifestations of anything. As such, the new imps are a little more abstract than the old Keeps and Forges et cetera.
    • Each improvement has one or more perks, and each perk has a maximum and a coefficient. The perk value calculation is using the same formula has before.
    • Cartography: increases land generated, reduces cost of exploration.
    • Commerce: increases gold production.
    • Construction: reduced construction and rezoning costs.
    • Defense: increases your defensive power.
    • Espionage: increases spy ratio, reduces spy losses, and increases Forest Haven housing.
    • Housing: increases max population.
    • Farming: increases food production.
    • Logging: increases lumber production.
    • Medicine: reduces offensive and defensive casualties.
    • Mobilisation: reduces unit gold and ore costs.
    • Offense: increases your offensive power.
    • Research: increases XP production.
    • Stonecutting: increases ore production.
    • Wizardry: increases wizard ratio, mana production, spell damage, and increases Wizard Guilds housing.
    • Other special improvements:
      • Unit Pairing: a perk added to some improvements for factions that have a pairing or amount limit increasable by an improvement. For example, Nox has a Nox variant of Wizardry, which has all the same perks as Wizardry plus the Unit Pairing perk with the same max/coefficient as the other perks.
      • Harbour (Armada only): same as Farming but has unit pairing increase.
      • Tissue (Growth only): increases population and food production.
  • Some factions are tagged as Experimental. Playing an experimental faction means you understand that it has changes which are deemed experimental and while they have passed some basic screening, they might be overpowered. If they are, the dominion may be locked, but not for any rule violation; only for the good of the round.
