Thread: Political Promotion - Cursus honorum

    Default Political Promotion - Cursus honorum

    Greetings,


    I've been looking for specific information on how to move the characters in my game through the Roman Cursus Honorum, and I'm having trouble finding the latest information, or perhaps not, I've found this information below, in my search, but this post is a bit old and from 1.2 I believe. Is this still correct, and the correct requirements to move each character through the Cursus Honorum? Or are things slightly different now?


    Quaestor - At least 5 battles won and at least 30 years old
    Aedile - At least 10 battles won and at least 34 years old
    Praetor - At least 15 battles won and at least 39 years old
    Consul - At least 20 battles won and at least 42 years old
    Proconsul - One year after attaining the Consulship
    Censor - At least 30 battles won and at least 53 years of age


    Is this still the correct path through the Cursus Honorum?


    Thanks for any help anyone can provide?

    check cursus_honorum_level_requirements_tables so to see how the age is set
    open the first dei pack with pfm/rpfm

    A lot of that is scripted also.

    Yeah this is what I'm getting from cursus_honorum_level_requirements_tables

    lvl subculture Key Age Rank
    1 sc_rom_roman 25 2
    2 sc_rom_roman 30 3
    3 sc_rom_roman 32 4
    4 sc_rom_roman 35 5
    5 sc_rom_roman 999 6
    6 sc_rom_roman 999 7
    7 sc_rom_roman

    So are the battle requirements scripted in combination with these numbers?

    IIRC in older DeI revisions the Cursus honorum was fully script controlled and battle dependent. Now you can just use 'secure Promotion' once the level + age requirements are met as well. (because I usually have a few tax/food generals, who never participated in battle and have their political rank to 6 and higher. For other parties this can also trigger by political incident.

    The script still auto-promotes Generals, who actually fight battles. Though, the age requirements seem to be set much higher compared to the manual promotion.
    ie Rome Rank 1 to 2: (or every other faction)
    (context:character():battles_won() >= 3) and (context:character():age() >= 30)

    I just promoted a General by hand at age 25 in my current campaign to political rank 2 - never saw a single battle

    If that helps....

    Early ranks you can secure through promotion or battles, later ones require battles if I remember.
