Re: Food stocks

When a new pop is added you only have up to the amount produced each turn left, if you come under siege in that turn you are in trouble.....
If you get a new pop added by the "admirable healthcare event", then it looks like food stockpile is reduced to zero.

Re: City level and Food allocation

In this game I haven't built the Colliseum, Circus maximus, Royal Court and Palace Library, in Rome. The chance to build these was offered elsewhere before Rome. If these were restricted to the Rome region it would help. My loyalty is going down by 8 every pop increase at present, if it carries on w...

City level and Food allocation

I think there needs to be some way of restricting the redistribution of food within a province. For Rome this is getting to be a problem. I have about 140 turns still to go. Rome is at level 53 at present with a loyalty of 80. I have no pop in food production, yet I am gaining population every 5 tur...

Food stocks

I am right in thinking that when you go up a population level the amount of food stored in that region resets to 0 again. This can be a problem if that city suddenly comes under siege just after gaining a level. I seem to remember in another game years ago with the same sort of population growth the...

Leader quality bonus

Playing as Rome with the latest patch. I have a couple of Military Acadamies which say they give a +1 to leader quality. I also have the Great Military School which gives a +3. Where do these bonuses show? Are they just factored into the calculations for battles? I take it they are not added to the ...
