    I think I recall that the maintenance cost for Barracks is 1 gold.
    So I was surprised when I looked into it and found this.


    It should not be 2 gold?

    The maintenance is the same on all levels right? Anyway this game is only on King level. And other city improvements have normal maintenance costs.

    I think barracks maintenance increases after gunpowder and again after mobile warfare.

    Thanks. I loaded a save from before Gunpowder, built one Barracks and the maintenance was 1.
    Just another example of lacking details in the Civilopedia.

    It doubles after gunpowder. I wonder what happens if you change it to 0 in the Rules.txt-file.

    It is 2 after Gunpowder and 3 after Mobile warfare. Furthermore, if you have any existing barracks at the time of those discoveries they will all be automatically sold for 40g each.
