Thread: corruption limit

  1. #1

    Default corruption limit

    What's the treasury limit above which characters are likely to get negative traits relating to corruption (sumptuosus, etc.)? As I recall it was around 50K in vanilla, and absurdly low in BI... It's pretty clear that the limit is less than 500K in EB, and probably less than 300K. With the EB economy and buiding costs, it's probably impossible for a major power to stay under the vanilla limit, so I hope it was raised somewhat.

    Thanks, and my apologies if I missed documentation of this elsewhere!

    Search export_descr_character_traits for "Treasury".

    I was thinking the very same question.

    How do you search that file?

    Err... Edit => Search, in any editor for text such as Notepad, Wordpad, Word, Ultraedit, Textpad, vi, emacs etc. At the very least you have either the two first or one of the two last.

    Edit what and where? Where would you go to edit whatever it is you need to edit?


    Iím sure itís a lot easier to tell folks what the corruption limit for the Romans is rather than explain something to the computer illiterate.

    Sorry, can't be bothered to look it up. You really should become computer literate enough to do this. In the top of Notepad, there are a couple of menu items, including File, Help, and yes, Edit.

    Perhaps he has a more basic problem (like me sometimes)? As far as I know, export_descr_character_traits is a txt-file in the EB/Data folder. Just open it with an editor (writing programm like Word, or the Windows editor by double clicking), open the second from left command window in the command line above (beneath "File", don't know the English term), choose "Search" and type in the word "treasury" to find the right lines. Change what you want (beware of the spaces between the lines, rows and the letters) and save the file.

    McAds, or anyone else who is curious but doesn't want to look it up, as I recall there are thresholds at 50/100/150K. Comments indicate that at one point these were doubled, but have since reverted.

    I believe doubling was correct; it's hard to see how a major civilized power can possibly remain below 150K (going below 300K would be a challenge, honestly). But I suppose it is plausible that a rich civilized power would have a lot of corrupt governors. Historical Rome certainly did!

    Bovi, thanks for pointing me to the right file!

    Are you talking about treasury there or gross income before expenditure there jhhowell?

    Because all those armies are pretty efficient at soaking up money. Not to mention fleets.

    I expect it's cash in your treasury at the end of the turn.
