    It doesn't work that way. Namely, Industrious, Expansionist and Commercial flags do not give any discounts on improvements. Commercial flag determines whether the improvement is paid for by the "Pays maintenance for Trade Installation" wonder. Industrious and Expansionist flags on improvements have no effect that I know of.

    Other than that , good job :goodjob:

    Ah.

    So only those 3 don't. I just assumed all of them did.

    The most helpful thing I've read in this forum, together with Utah's guide to making units in Poser. Thank you.

    My pleasure. I even tested out some previously unexplored things. (most notably the culture borders thing in general settings.)

    But it's still not complete because it's missing the Charm function's description. (which I still can not figure out)

    Yep. And so is teleportation. And Level deleting. (the delete button is silly. :D )

    X-post.

    From what I've heard, charm seems to be broken. People have tried all kinds of bombardment and attack setups with it, and saw no visible effects.

    Also allows the building to be built while the civ is under mobilization.

    You sure about this? Because factories aren't marked with that, and I know they can be built when a civ is mobilized.

    I was (until you said that)

    but in games I've played I don't remember being able to build them (as it would be very usefull), only barracks, harbour, etc.

    I'll run a test later today.

    Made two simple tests

    1:
    - Played game in debug mode
    - Gave myself first three eras techs
    - Created city on iron

    City could build as normal (including factory)

    - Contacted another civ
    - declared war
    - mobilized

    City could only build militaristic buildings/(small)wonders. Could not build a factory

    2:
    - Set up mod with militaristic hospital
    - Played game in debug mode
    - Gave myself first three eras techs
    - boosted pop to 7
    - gave city an aquaduct

    City could build as normal (including hospital)

    - Contacted another civ
    - declared war
    - mobilized

    City could only build militaristic buildings/(small)wonders. Hospital could be built.

    ----

    This test did not show that there is not some other combination of settings that allows buildings to be built while mobilized. But Mobilization => only militaristic buildings, seems to be the way things work.

    Strange, I thought I could build factories in WWII Pacific in war time mode (it's not militaristic or anything)... Ah well. I think I just remembered wrong.

    Edited.

    Done. Now it's just buildings, to be generic.

    Thanks Plotinus! :)

    It was my pleasure spending a week of random testing and experimentation to get these things to figure out the more unexplored things. :yeah:
