Embassy Advancements

Cultural Goods and Diplomacy

Embassy Advancements have to be unlocked in order to build new settlement buildings and to be able to unlock the next advancement. Embassy Advancements can be unlocked by paying a certain amount of cultural goods, while having the requested amount of diplomacy. Although the total amount of cultural goods and the type of goods is the same for every player, the amount of each good can be different.

Embassy Advancements window


The table below shows the total amount of cultural goods and the possible type of goods needed for each advancement. It can happen that one of the possible goods requires 0 amount and is not shown to the player. The total amount of cultural goods needed to unlock all advancements is 1,245.

Using Diamonds

When lacking cultural goods or diplomacy to unlock an advancement, the player can use diamonds. The amount of diamonds needed depends on the amount of cultural goods and diplomacy still needed to unlock the next advancement. Each Diplomacy 1 diplomacy costs Diamonds 1 diamond, each Cultural Goods Building.png 1 cultural good costs Diamonds 5 diamonds.

Example: the first advancement costs Vegetables 15 vegetables and requires Diplomacy 55 diplomacy, the total diamond cost will be 15*5 + 55 = Diamonds 130 diamonds. A player has Vegetables 10 vegetables in stock and Diplomacy 50 diplomacy in their city, missing Vegetables 5 vegetables and Diplomacy 5 diplomacy. This will cost 5*5 + 5 = Diamonds 30 diamonds to unlock the advancement, plus the Vegetables 10 vegetables in stock.
The amount of diamonds shown below is the maximum diamond cost for each advancement, when no goods or diplomacy would be used at all. The total cost of all advancements would then be Diamonds 10,900.

Warning: before using diamonds, be aware that when finishing a settlement (or abandoning one), the settlement will be reset and all buildings, goods in stock, advancements and expansions will be lost, including those unlocked with diamonds.

Time Rewards

Fragment of Jade Statue Selection Kit

When finishing the Aztec Settlement within a certain time frame, the player will get an additional reward: fragments of the Jade Statue Selection Kit. It takes 15 fragments to obtain the Jade Statue Selection Kit, which gives the player a choice between a Jade Statue Level 1 or a Jade Statue Upgrade.

  • 1st reward: Fragment of Jade Statue Selection Kit 9 Fragments of Jade Statue Selection Kit
  • 2nd reward: Fragment of Jade Statue Selection Kit 4 Fragments of Jade Statue Selection Kit
  • 3rd reward: Fragment of Jade Statue Selection Kit 2 Fragment of Jade Statue Selection Kit

The player receives all three rewards when finishing within the shortest time frame (15 fragments total), the second and third reward when finishing within the second time frame (6 fragments total) and only the third reward for finishing within the last time frame (2 fragments). The player will receive no time reward when finishing after the third time frame.

After each finished settlement, the time frame for the next settlement will be shorter. After finishing 13 Aztec Settlements, the time frame will stay the same for each new Aztec Settlement.
