Thread: cultural decisions

  1. #1

    cultural decisions

    Epic vs. Tapestry seem to cost the same amount to me and have identical requirements in SRI. But one gives more bonus and prestige as well and lasts longer making the other irrelevant. Is that something others have seen?

    Also compared to vanilla, patron of the arts just gives you prestige now? Kind of a weak decision now, no? Or am I missing something?

    Thanks

    Prestige is hard to come by, and quite useful, compared with vanilla. This is almost always the first NI I choose... my 2

    Thanks. Usually I get lots of prestige from winning battles or having a philosopher in vanilla. I haven't played enough SRI yet and I will take your word for it. I did notice that it is harder to get cultural tradition in the mod as well compared to vanilla (no more free paintings).

    Yes for sure, in SRI you can essentially convert prestige to cultural tradition. Then one may attract/hire a high quality advisor, such as a philosopher, to gain prestige, which in turn frees up an NI slot . You need to think and juggle a bit more than in vanilla... but it is quite logical if you think about it. I suppose if you were playing a large empire or conquest-type campaign the pretige would be easier to come by - I typically play minor nations, it is then very difficult to acquire.
