Thread: [IN PROGRESS] Cyrene Expanded

    Preview time! Here are some new buildings that you'll able to construct:

    1. Cleruch Farm



    This farm will greatly increase Kleruchoi population class, allowing you to recruit more elite troops, but at a cost - it will reduce your settlement's food production by a large margin; all to simulate giving away land to military settlers in return for service.

    2. Apollo Karneios Temple



    Apollo Karneios cult originated in Sparta - people of one of its colonies, Thera, settled in Cyrene, bringing their deity with them.

    3. Silphium Plant Trader



    A plant believed to have magical properties, it was widely used as a contraceptive. Trade of the now extinct plant was exteremely lucrative.

    On top of that, Cyrene itself will have access to a new trade resource - silphium, which will come with a custom icon:

    Very nice, Megas! I understand that all these building chains are reserved for Cyrene only, right?

    Thank you

    Silphium Plant Trader will of course require the unique trade resource (only found in Cyrene settlement), but Cleruch Farm could be used by any Succesor state and temple of Apollo Karneios by Spartans

    Thank you all for your continued support - that's what kept me going! Expect more previews in the near future - I've finally found some 3D modellers and Benjin is assisting as well.

    The Cleruch Farm concept is such an awesome idea. Just wanted to throw that in there

    IIRC, Kleruchs were also a major source of tax revenue for the Successor kingdoms, so maybe they could be in the middle beween farms and animal husbandry in terms of money to food ratio.

    That could work

    Another thing I've been thinking about - Silphium Trader would bring in a large amout of coin, but since that plant was (allegedly) used as a contraceptive, building it would also decrease population growth in the settlement.

    Whilst being a good idea gameplay wise, IMO this doesn´t really make sense.
    People would use it as a contraceptive if it were traded or not.
    And since trading it away would reduce supply, the price would go up and therefore make it less available to the common populace.

    Wow - cool submod, I didn't even know this existed! Congratulations on making the front page! Usually I crush this faction as the Ptolomies, but this might be an interesting twist for a game - survive in relatively safe North Africa on the edge of two superpowers... I'll give this mod a try.

    Nicely done, I agree with the praise above! I like the idea of a new trade resource and a farm representing giving away land to military settlers after service.

    I might also add a Silphium farm chain, I think that effect would work better there.

    I agree - you're between two powerful empires - Ptolemaic Kingdom, which will seek to regain its lost land and Carthage. You could even try to return to Greece and gain a foothold there.

    Looks like Magas has been active pretty recently, hopefully he can still finish it up! it seemed so close to being ready for release, it'd be a shame for all that fantastic work to be left incomplete.

    I hope so as well - I've spent better part of last year trying to find a modeller to help me finish it (including paid commisions), but unfortunately with no luck.
