    How big your cities was? Rarely see Courthouse reducing maintenance by 6-7g (10 in pop 20 capital) and Market provides 8g

    These were cities between 12-22 population. And I remember that a Courthouse for one of them reduced gold by 14 :). Keep in mind high maintenance cost+high upkeep (not sure if this counts to maintenance).

    Reducing the maintenance for a civ is impossible for me. If players do think courthouse's effect is too high, I can lower courthouse's effect and gives Sidar courthouse UB with increased effect.

    Marketplace gives money from commerce, right? Sidar with mist have penalty over traderoutes so unless you were spamming trading posts, you won't get that much commerce.

    Well, just look at the screenshot below - courthouse is reducing expenses by 34 g, which is more that all income buildings + trade routes are giving. I also want to complan about AI ;) It wasn't very dumb, but also wasn't very smart. Every enemy at some time had tried to conquer me, there were some serious doomstacks in play. However they were having too little magic units, I believe that 1 out of 30 was a mage/adept. And the armageddon counter stopped at 6 on the turn near 400, which was strange (2 good civs, 2 neutral, 2 evil), while I razed some cities and pillaged like crazy. 34u.png

    Covr, that is a gigantonormous city. It is an extreme outlier, so it is no surprise to me that things get somewhat squewered in these bordercases. The mechanics are balanced for some more "normal" city-sizes.

    RE: Courthouse
    Let's consider the gold from Courthouses are not income (Courthouses do not generate income) but embezzled pupblic money, wealth corrupted by officials etc and the legal processes at the court save these money and bring it back to the people. ;)

    RE: AI
    Yes, the AI is not perfect but I think Sephi and CarnivalBizarre had done great things to it! I prefer their AI than CIV5 and CIV6's :p

    RE: AI and adept units
    AI leader has their own weight for adepts. Some (like the Amurites, Sheaim and shockingly Bannor) will field more adepts than other. Khazad leaders are ones with lower weight thus they will rarely use adepts. Also, while the AI understands casting spells and values promotions from combat aura, it does not have foresight like we do so often adepts have lower weight compared to melee units (which are stronger in raw power).

    Is it possible to fix that?
    Are you sure this is still an issue? I might be crazy, but with the latest version I think I can found cities on tiles with no food yield again.

    TBH, I am not sure. CarnivalBizarre has fixed that, but I don't know whether the AI will calculate that or not. If there are reports that Infernals can settle just fine then I will undo this.

    RE: Dural
    - Yes, I guess they can't acquire Righteousness/etc because they are agnostics. Dural needs the tech for their Altar victory, yes? I will add Dural-specific tech to allow them researching Righteousness then.
    - I don't see any problem with cottage line in my game (Dural or other civs). Anyone else are having this problem?

    RE: Stones.
    - Quarry now produces +1 hammer +4 stones.
    - Stonecutter can be built in any city which produce stones, gives +25% of that city's stone income, gives 1 engineer slot. Cost: 100 hammers/100 metal. It is easier to get than Deep Mine/Shaft Mine for metal or Sawmill/Enchanted Sawmill for lumber, which require adopting and advancing a guild.

    Hello Esvath !

    I don't know if you are still taking suggestions for the next version, but i'd like to point a thing that i felt very unimmersive (does this word even exist ? :crazyeye:) when playing with the Dural and with the Khazad:

    In the late game, after you research gunpowder, those civilizations can train the arquebus unit, but what bothers me is that you can only equip them with crossbows and bows. So, my suggestion would be to create a a few fireguns equipments(i think 2 is ok, just to give us the power of choice), so it will be possible to equip gunpowder units with gunpowder weapons, instead of the obsolete bows and crossbows. Only the Dural and the Khazad would be able to equip them.

    Yeah, that's mostly a cosmetic change, but i think it helps to polish this mod.

    Thanks again for your dedication, and i am looking foward for the 5.4 version !

    Hmmm... I don't know...

    Something like these?

    Civ4ScreenShot0003.JPG Civ4ScreenShot0006.JPG Civ4ScreenShot0004.JPG

    :p

    Khazad and Dural's arquebus will start with a rifle. This will allow them to upgrade to other type of rifles (requiring Bronze/Iron/Mithril) and add ammo (requiring Iron/Silver/Mithril). No other archery units (even Khazad and Dural) can use rifles and ammos.

    Oh, and just for fun:
