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 1,260.

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 second advancement costs Basmati 20 basmati and requires Diplomacy 214 diplomacy, the total diamond cost will be 5*20 + 214 = Diamonds 314 diamonds. A player has Basmati 15 basmati in stock and Diplomacy 209 diplomacy in their city, missing Basmati 5 basmati and Diplomacy 5 diplomacy. This will cost 5*5 + 5 = Diamonds 30 diamonds to unlock the advancement, plus the Basmati 15 basmati 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 10,993.

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.
