Reform on how we recruit an Army

Recommended Posts

Instead of building a army using money, scrap that and have it being that it require that province's population to build a army.

This will make so that your gold can not quickly build a army in one turn. 

Example, you select provinces that will build a army for you based off of the population the province has.

Population of 25000, would be able to recruit a army of 1500 but it would take 3 turns.

Each turn makes 500 units

There needs to be a new building so that you can train a army. The higher the level the building is the faster and more units you can build.

The cost would increase the military upkeep.

This would allow a nation prepared for war, have a higher chance of winning.

Even if you are a small nation but have time to build up a army without costing gold would be ideal in terms for war.

A Big Nation will always out produce units because of gold but take that away then this allows a small nation to take down a big nation or at least get them to agree to a peace deal in the small nation favor.

Having these buildings in the game would allow strategic planning since now you know where you should plan your attack.

You would want to take out their building so they cant counter attack or build a army close enough.

With what we currently have a Nation with a high budget can build a army of 2500 in one turn, which is annoying because you probably was prepared for war but suddenly they out number you.

I think the idea is nice but not phrased properly. Population is already a factor in how much you can recruit out of a province. What you're suggesting is that this recruitment should be divided into turns (500 per turn to 1500 in your example). A nation with a smaller population then being able to recruit 200 per turn to 600 in a province. I like that.

Gold is most intensely used when you're at war; buildings are not that significant. You would have little reason to keep money in the game if recruitment won't depend on it.

Money should be used for other things, such as building infrastructure.

Having a bigger economy shouldnt mean you should be able to rush through a war. There should be potential for it but if you do not prepare for war then you would be less likely to win.

An additional building may not be necessary, for the existing armory may take on the additional benefit under your proposal.

Also maybe one could invest tech points into recruitment as well.

Right, focus on building the economy or development.

Maybe even having certain governments be able to have a quicker recruitment rate.

The only other thing I would add to this is that supplies should be a major thing. If a invading army is staying in a province for too long then will run out of supplies.

In a way limit how big a army can get

Actually, maybe just scrap the whole recruitment feature and turn it into mobilization. In a country tab, you can decide to mobilize, and then decide how much % of your population you want to mobilize. The bigger the percent you mobilize, the higher negatives from economy you get. Mobilizing would also cost 1 gold per pop you mobilize. Max would be 5% of your population (with soldiers counting towards the population). Also, when mobilized, you get a happiness boost depending on the percent you're mobilizing times 10, so if you mobilize 1%, that's -10% happiness and so on. Mobilization would work by mobilizing 20% of the full number each turn, so it'd take 5 turns to get all your pops mobilized.

You'd still be able to hire mercenaries (basically the conscript feature) which work the way they do, but cost a lot more.

You are right but a bit more balanced.

But so far we are heading the right direction

      Add spies, you can send them to another country to get some information like:
      Army size, How much gold they have, How much gold they earn, How much they can recruit etc.
      There is a chance the spy will get caught. But, the weaker the nation, the lower the chance he gets caught. If he got caught the country might decrease relations with you.
      If a country sends a spy to your country, they will get your info and see if you're weak so they can attack you. If your country is strong, they might fail and you get a message that [country] sent a spy to you, then you can decide what to do: send insult, declare war, demand other stuff etc.

      I found this Korean who's giving suggestions about AoC3 and it's quite good. You cam see the complete replies under Martin Kovář's comment on Lukasz's community post about the Project:Alpha WIP on his YT channel.

      It's a bit anoying to, let's say, have two French countries, that both have different nationalities. It doesent make sense that France 1 has to asimilate land from France 2. Isn't there any way to make a system like in Victoria 1/2, where every country has accepted cultures. Maybe we could have the ability to make our own cultures, and if we make new countries, we could have the option to asign them accepted cultures. The cores can stay the same, but when we make new scenarios, we could add to each province as many cultures as we think are necesary. Maybe when raising soilders, you could have the option from wich culture these soldiers should be.
      That's my suggestion

      Witam
       
      Proponuję stronę partie. Nie muszą być jak w hoi4, ale mogą być takie takie:
      Powiedzmy że jest polska w 1939 roku
      i jak ona gracie to ma ideologię demokratyczną.
      I cywilizacja, która ma na starcie jakąś ideologię, najlepiej, aby była dostępna najczęściej To chyba logiczne
      Partia byłaby w zakładce "Dyplomacja '(po najechaniu na dany kraj) 
      Tam była część partii demokratycznej, komunistyczna, faszystowska, republikańska itd. Partie Oparte byłby na ideologiach, nie musza  mieć jakiejs specjalnej nazwy. Pojawi sięby% poparcia
      Oraz kolejna zakładka, coś w postaci tworzenia buntowników do tam przez było "dostępne zestawy" oraz wybieramy jaka jest wspierająca (oczywiście wspieramy w innych krajach). I przekazali byśmy pieniądze. Jeśli jakaś partia zaczęła się zyskiwać na liście i nawet przekroczyła popularność rządzącej, zależało na „ultimatum”
      Kraj albo ma zmienić ideologię, czy wybuchnie wojna domowa. Stolica ustawiana byłaby losowo.

      As i think that there was a update from 1 month ago, there is still hope that Lukasz will still update the game, so I have got a suggestion that would improve the game, now as you see, some provinces have got no name, so it appears as fokus and on any map mode as "    ",  and provinces that have got this can't be clicked if they are the largest city of the country/civilization, e.x. Look at Cameroon, now look at the province that is in the north, you will see that it has fokus name and "    ", now when Cameroon's captial city has low pop like 10k-20k, this city could be its largest, if it is name is blank i won't know what province it is referring to because most of the provinces have got fokus, this suggestion might not be necessary, but it would help if i am searching for provinces.

      Improved version of the map editor, which differs from the usual one in that this version does not need to constantly restart the editor and manually rename the province files. This innovation will significantly reduce the time spent on creating a map and save your nerves.
