Spying ideas

Recommended Posts

Could be good to have spies, maybe in the form of units  (between 1 and 50) invisible to the enemy unless you're discovered. Spies efficienty would be based on tech level, the higher your dev is, the most undetectable they are. Could be presented as below:

-building spying center where you could hire spies.

-spying treaties between civs : they both let spies pass in their territory and both recover the informations. Note: this is a secret alliance.

Spying actions :

-sabotage : destroy a building

-informations : removes the fog in some provinces around them. And, if in the capital, infos about the budget and all troops. (High tech level to enter the capital)

-assasinations : kill the leader, will result in less hapiness, would require a high dev tough.

-organize a coup : change the government/ideology of another country to yours and improves relations, will depend on hapiness, economy and diplomacy of the country. It will have a high chance of sucess if  the country, is ruined or losing at war. If it fails, relations will decrease.

-liberate other spies that have being captured.

Counterespionage :

it would be too hard if you could'nt protect yourself, as much your spies are undetectable as much you counterespionage is efficient and so you could see enemy spies and kill or arrest them with your own (arresting by encercling) you'll then know who was spying on you and keep spies as prisonners, enemy will have to pay a a ransom to recover them.

There would be a rate of sucess for missions : even if you have a better tech level than a civ you're spying on, you could be discovered and this civ would maybe have a low but not impossible possiblility of accomplishing a mission without being seen.

what do you think ?

Wouldn't it be weird to see a leader get assasinated and still lead the country?

Sure XD .Let's say you just switch to the next one : the next period's one . It's the most plausible idea i guess for now. It'd be still rare though

      I don't know if it's just me or a common bug but I added Belarussian cores in Poland so that only Belarus can revolt around Minsk but instead of that I got Lendian revolts...in 2000's. Can you please make that only civilizations that have a core in a province can revolt in it? The other day I also got Slovenian revolts...in Vienna (they didn't cover any Slovenian provinces) which spread up to Berlin - I never added any Slovene cores.

      I suggest a new update which makes use of the events system, as the game can be way more interesting with events. It is way too hard to set up events individually, and I just request that this is spread out to moderators and Lukasz Jakowski. Also, a more accurate placement of leaders to their proper timelines would be amazing.
      Thanks to Lukasz for developing this game(I am aware we demand too much from a one man developer, but I plead in behalf of many others!)

      I think that the national strength (such as the economy) of the countries in the countryside (western Africa, Central Asia, northern India, etc.) from the 1st century AD to around 1800 BC is a bit too high. So the power of small European countries may be equal to the power of countries in central Africa. I think this may be strange indeed. What do you think? (I'm not familiar with history so I'm sorry if my suggestions are wrong.)
      As I am not good at English, there may be many mistakes. Sorry
      Would you mind responding to me? I want to know your idea.

      I really enjoy creating scenarios but it becomes a problem when it comes to the Event creator. It's confusing and a bit difficult to learn. Lukasz, you should either add a tutorial or create a better OSD for it.
