The Ancient Egypt Settlement is the third of the Cultural Settlements, released on 18 March 2020. The purpose is to help Queen Nefertiti lead Ancient Egypt to prosperity.

This page explains the workings of the settlement and its buildings; for information about the quests, embassy advancements and rewards check the Ancient Egypt page.

Start[]

When starting the Ancient Egypt Settlement the player will have a city grid the size of 8 expansions (4x2), with the Ancient Egypt embassy in the top corner, and a stock of Deben Coins 9,000 Deben Coins. Take notice of the impediments on the city grid, unmovable rocks that block part of the grid. Normally these cannot be removed; however with this settlement they've made it possible to remove some. You can't remove all of them, so it may still be necessary to build around the impediments, making it harder to arrange buildings. However keep in mind that every expansion apart from the main city grid will always have one impediment on it.

With each start of a new Cultural settlement, the impediments will be arranged differently in the city. Abandoning a settlement will not rearrange the impediments.

Additional expansions can be unlocked by either paying cultural goods or diamonds. The player can unlock a total of 20 expansions by paying cultural goods and 5 with diamonds. The total city grid can fit 41 expansions, including the first 8.

Embassy[]

The Ancient Egyptian Embassy

The Ancient Egypt embassy has a size of Size 6x8 and can be moved to another location on the grid. The embassy cannot be sold.

The Embassy produces Deben Coins 600 Deben coins per day.

Click on the embassy (or on the 'Develop' button) to open the Embassy Advancements window. This window shows the player's cultural goods stock at the top left. The main screen shows the embassy advancements and the costs to unlock them: the amount of cultural goods shown in the middle and on the bottom the amount of diplomacy needed. The amount of diamonds displayed to unlock an advancement depends on the amount of goods and/or diplomacy still needed. The player can choose to gain the amount of resources and diplomacy still needed, or pay the difference with diamonds.

A list of all embassy advancements and their requirements can be found on the Ancient Egypt page.

The building menu consists of five types of buildings and an expansions window:

  • Cultural Goods Building.png Cultural Goods buildings
  • Diplomacy.png Diplomacy buildings
  • Military Building Military buildings
  • Road Required.png Roads
  • Size Expansions

At the start of the settlement, the player will have one of each type of building available in the building menu, except for Military Buildings that will have three buildings available: The Simple Clay Hut, the Grain Farm, the Potted Plant, the Training Camp, the Nubian Archery Range, the Camel Barn and the Path in the Sand. All other buildings become available by unlocking embassy advancements.

The building cost of each settlement building depends on the player's era and consists of resources from the main city, i.e., coins and supplies.

All resources gained from the settlement, stay in the settlement. Players cannot trade cultural goods with other players.

Cultural Goods Buildings[]

Cultural goods buildings provide an amount of cultural goods, from 5 to 20, depending on the chosen production time. The production is similar to goods production in the main city, but requires a resource that the player gets by winning battles in the settlement, Loot Loot. Cultural goods are used for unlocking embassy advancements and expansions.

Unlike main city goods, the player cannot trade cultural goods with other players.

Production Bonus[]

Cultural goods buildings provide a production bonus: with each production the player has a chance of 5% to get 4x the amount of goods produced. With each finished settlement, this percentage increases by 2%, until 10 settlements are finished, after which it stays at 25%.

Beware: When finishing or abandoning a settlement, all cultural goods in stock will be lost.
