    Would it be possible for culture to have an influence on taxes?

    Imagine it like this: when you conquer a region, you basically only have the regional capital under your control.
    If the previous faction is culturally similar to you, you can use existing structures to gather taxes.
    If not, you will have to establish control over the numerous existing settlements of the native population.

    Increasing your culture basically means that you either colonise the land or gain control over/make deals with native settlements.
    Isn't this already kind of indirectly reflected in the mod? Public order is to a large part tied to culture, in the form of native discontent and adds a malus or bonus to the tax income. It is far from being exactly what you wish for, but it's at least somehow present in the mod. Would be nice of course, if they could implement this more understandable and clear as a new mechanic, as you suggested.

    I've been playing as the Ptolmeic Kingdom, and after the recent update, my region capitals have very very tiny garrisons, but other cities have NO garrisons. Enemy armies are able to come right in.

    I have to say Im more of a fan of full garrisons right from the get go, with quality of the troops themselves increasing with higher city building line

    Is there a way at all to add in a night mode for the campaign? I know it's done in battles but have never seen it, could be interesting.

    Are there any plans or efforts into streamlining the campaign?

    The icons are hard to make out what they are suppose to be, there is no color codification or smaller icon to tell me what the things are and when reading the title is usually an odd name from a different language like Latin thrown at me.
    I am having a really hard time playing the game with dozens of buildings present with no way to really understand what they are at a glance and each time forced to read a small paragraph of what things do.
    It doesn't really add challenge or interactive experience for me as a player but more like try to inconvenience me as much as possible.

    The campaign map colors and faction colors also makes it very difficult to tell which territory belongs to whom. Maybe CA's idea of having a standard color map and their faction colors were not a bad idea to keep?
    The UI kind of makes things hard to read or see. Idk if this is the ENB you guys implemented or its just the UI layout itself.

    All in all I really love the game and battle mechanics since Rome 2 completely failed in that regard but honestly you guys did tremendous amount of work. So much so that the gameplay that use to be at least somewhat fun to something very tedious that I try to avoid.
    I am sure the idea behind these decisions were so that the player feels like they are "running" an empire but honestly it does not feel like it at all. I hope you guys at make the campaign gameplay more straight forward or at least make things more clear or plain English so I don't need to spend so much time reading rather than actually playing.

    I don't know if this is posted anywhere. But is there a way that your faction name can change from 'Roman Republic' to 'Roman Empire'? I haven't gotten that far in yet.
    What is an opinion? It is a flattened idea, an idea that has been made uniform in order to make it acceptable to the largest number of people. Opinions are massified ideas. It is important for power that these opinions be maintained because it is through opinion, the control of opinion, that they obtain given results, not least the mechanisms of propaganda and electoral procedures through the use of the media. The formation of new power elites comes not from ideas but from opinions.

    Yes. I think one of the commander skills unlocks it. I will add it to the Command attribute at a certain level as well

    Roman buildings seldom have Latin names, and for those that do the meaning is explained in the description. I think this strikes a balance between immersion and streamlining. This is, admittedly, not very developed for the Hellenistic factions where (even I find) the names confusing from time to time.

    Most icons are well differentiated. Port icons are not done, and some buildings like lands occassionally have icons that are hard to make out or too similar to other icons. That's fair criticism, but I think it reflects the exception better than the rule. I think there are plans to revise components of the UI a few at a time. The UI has always been an ongoing project.

    I'm not really sure where you want to go with the last paragraph. I firmly believe that most people enjoy the campaign in large part due to its complexity and layers. What may seem daunting at first with things like building options eventually grows on you. The different building categories generally have well established purposes; within a category are diverging building trees that each are suitable under different circumstances and depending on what the player's strategy is. I am open to suggestions for streamlining aspects that may not be very clear/intuitive to the player, but I don't agree that the complexity/size of the mod detracts from the experience. On the contrary, it is one of its hallmarks.

    We have the "raw data" for an event chain that, based on player choices, converts the republic to the empire. There just hasn't been time to implement it yet

    Playing as Rome? I know what you mean. At first looking at all the different names of the city builds can be daunting. It is exacerbated when you are trying to plan your improvement strategy; you hover over a prerequisite icon and you see a column from top to bottom of the screen listing all those names that you don't really know yet. Just take a deep breath. There are four city types. Spread them out on the building tree and hover over each line of city type. Get familiar with what each type does for you, or to you. It will become less daunting as you tinker. Remember, this mod is a beta, so you are just play-testing.

    Start tip: change your trouble provinces to independent cities to end native discontent. After you get a handle on food and your PO is 100, slowly change those provinces into allied cities (or others). By then you will recognize the names.

    Yeah. I tried three times I just can't get through it.
    I am just not enjoying myself. The map is hard to interpret, the UI hurts my eyes, the ENB has this lighting and blur thing going on. In addition to the icons which aren't color coded and they mostly use very light colors on a marble white UI Background that sometimes I just need to look away and rest my eyes before looking at it. And I cant even read/understand the bloody titles. smh.

    I think I am going to wait until someone create a submod to streamline things because its really unplayable for me.
    A shame though. I was looking forward to this mod.

    I would love to see more ingame info about granaries, like their capacity. Winter famine is a frequent guest in my kingdoms, but if I build too much granaries, I'm wasting the precious building slots. I just can't figure out their optimal numbers.

    We're working on a new mechanic for granaries. The intention is to have them boost winter food

    This is not certain yet. We are ironing out some more bugs and working on improvements before serious work on these factions will assume. We aim to review the best faction candidates in short and decide on two or three for a first release, and then release a few more at a rime. An estimation therefore wouldn't be useful just yet

    Can we get an option that allows us to change our capital? That way it might feel even more immersive like if we want to change our capital to Byzantium later on in the game. Thanks for considering our opinions you guys are great!
