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.

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.

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.

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

      Hi guys. I want create a new mod but i want to know if you like it. This mod will makes days slower, the income will be lower, rebeles should be stronger and it will increase risks of riots, it will be more expensive create a new army. So, the game will be very hard. What do you think about? Do you want this mod?

      MILITARY 
       
      Army
       
      Morale 
      Army has morale as hp bar. When it reach 0 the army retreat. The chances of army recreating depends on general skill and technology difference. 
      General
      Each army need a general. Army that doesn't have general has -50% morale. 
      When a general die in a battle it decrease  army morale by 50% and have 10% chances to retreat. 
      General skills 
      1 ⭐ general to 5 ⭐ general
      Each ⭐ increase morale by 2%
      Retreat chances :
      ⭐ - 60%
      ⭐⭐ - 70%
      ⭐⭐⭐ - 80%
      ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - 90%
      ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ -100%
      No general - 10%
       
      Siege 
      Province occupation :
      No fortress - 1 turn
      Lv 1 fortress - 2 turn
      Lv 2 fortress - 3 turn
      Lv 3 fortress - 4 turn
       
      Garrison 
      Each fortress have garrison. Each level add 1000 garrison army. A fortress province need at least equivalent amount of army to occupied. An army will never occupy a fortress province if it has less army than the garrison. 
       
      Technology 
      Each point of military weapon technology increase 10% attack. (because there is no way a tribe with spear need same amount of army that equipped with gun and have an even casualties in a battle) 
       
      I'll think about unit type that range from early civilization to modern era later. 
      I don't know how to mod to add all these stuff, probably need some programming (which is I don't know a thing). I just give an idea that will improve the game. 
       
      Unrelated stuff:
      Stellaris ancient relic is out.

      I was thinking about an idea where based off of how many troops you have compared to the enemy it would take off a percentage + a bit extra. Instead of it being subtraction based where battles occur instantaneously; this will allow you to hold off/take longer to invade while you/the enemy has some time to get reinforcements.
            And a bit unrelated but Forts also should be modified to be more powerful.

      First of all I really appreciate your work AoC2. Great game having fun while playing it.
      I know it is really annoying to code something Java bugs etc lol. And I don't know if it is really hard to code my suggestion.  
      Anyway my suggestion is that can you add game give loan and take loan but with interest not from Game itself instead  from other countries like in EU4 if im not mistaking. My point is instead of creating big empire or developing industry you gain money from Banking.

      It's just a minor idea, but looking at the fact that leaders have custom traits and such (A. K. A. a leader can change a country with it's bonuses) i think it wouldn't be a bad idea to add a "Change ruler/leader" option for event outcomes to create more creative scenarios!
