The Papal Influence modifier has already been considered, but it's not useful for Papal States, the country that should be the main user of the monument, so we looked for other modifiers that would add a little more punch to it; also taking into account the penalties for Catholic countries occupying Rome.Hey Pavia, thanks for your engagement with the community here! In my previous thread about Catholics and Hagia Sophia, you said it’d be changed in the next patch, which I assume means 1.31.5.
Would you consider also adding a small Papal Influence modifier to the monument? For Orthodox it give Patriarch Authority and for Muslims it gives Piety, so if you’re opening it to Catholics it makes sense to add a bonus for them too.
Plus historically speaking I suppose the Catholic controller of such an important location as the Hagia Sophia would enjoy a certain level of prestige with the Pope.
By that same logic of course I’d think St. Peter’s would also give Patriarch Authority if held by the Orthodox, as Rome is traditionally one of the Pentarchy.
It’s really cool to see you on here engaging in these forums. Monuments are such a huge feature that will really breathe flavor into the game when they’re balanced and fleshed out. I’m glad you’re balancing what you have now but I hope you add some more in the future!
Thanks your your kind words, too.
It's OK. As I said, we're not planning on new additions for the moment, but perhaps in the future this could be done, so having this kind of feedback already here would be very useful for us.ITT: Dev: We're not planning on adding new monuments at this time
Everyone else: Here, do this monument!
