Hello Bast!

Yet another set of suggestions for My Empire! :D

  • Happiness
    This will put actual challenge to manage cities.
    Each city will have their own happiness rating, the rating will affect the production and development efficiency of the city.
    If overall happiness rating in the city is a surplus, the city will function at full capacity. If that is a negative value, your city production and growth is nerfed by 50%. At -10 value, the city will break away from your Empire, becoming a Rogue State.
    Happiness is affected by the following factors:
    • Luxury resource access in the city
      If the city territory covers a tile with a luxury resource, that tile will provide +3 happiness to that city. Some resources requires specific tile improvement for the city to access to.
    • Distance from imperial capital
      The capital city of your empire is indicated by a palace. For every 5-tile radius the influence from palace reduces by 1. Maximum value from palace is +5. Minimum value is 0.
      Some ideologies will affect how this works.
    • Ideology
      The ideology will affect how much happiness are produced in a city. Ideology will be explained later.
    • Population
      Every 2 population reduces 1 happiness.
    • City
      At normal conditions, every city starts with 5 happiness.
    • Buildings
      Some buildings can add extra happiness to the city.
      • Arena is available after Construction research. +2 happiness.
      • Amphitheatre is available after Literature research. +2 happiness.
      • Stadium is available after Electricity (?) research. +3 happiness.
    • Occupied status
      Occupied city has reduced happiness value, happiness production reduced by 20%. A courthouse can neutralise this status, but will always get destroyed if another empire occupies the city.
