The Mughal Empire Settlement is the fifth of the Cultural Settlements and was introduced to the game on 11 August 2021. The purpose is to lead the Mughal Empire to prosperity.

You need to have researched the Late Middle Ages technology Higher Education to unlock it.

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

Start[]

When starting the Mughal Empire Settlement the player will have a city grid the size of 11 expansions (roughly 4x3), with the Mughal embassy in the middle back, and a stock of Rupees 6,200 Rupees. Take notice of the impediments on the city grid outside of the starting area - unmovable rocks that block part of the grid. These can be removed, using removal tools as far as they are available - otherwise it is necessary to build around the impediments, making it harder to arrange buildings.

With each start of a new 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 23 expansions by paying cultural goods and 5 with diamonds. The total city grid can fit 43 expansions, including the first 11.

Embassy[]

The Aztec Embassy

The Mughal Empire embassy has a size of Size 9x6 and can be moved to another location on the grid. The embassy cannot be sold.

The Embassy produces Rupees 800 Rupees per day. For each different production Diplomacy Buildings attached to the embassy, the embassy additionally produces Cultural Goods Building.png cultural goods:

  • Cultural Goods Building.png 5, if attached to one type of production Diplomacy Building
  • Cultural Goods Building.png 15, if attached to two different types of production Diplomacy Building
  • Cultural Goods Building.png 40, if attached to three different types of production Diplomacy Building

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.

Embassy Advancements window


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

The Mughal Empire Settlement is the first settlement with a chain and set mechanic inside the settlement, making the whole settlement the puzzle and also the minigame you have to solve. Meaning thinking about which expansions to buy and which impediments to remove gets crucial for success.

The non-production Diplomacy Buildings, have a Mughal Empire Chain chain ability with the Embassy, which means that you can attach them to your Embassy entrances. When you connect these buildings correctly to the Embassy, you increase the overall amount of diplomacy in your settlement. You can either attach Alleys to the front Embassy stairs or Water Canals to the side Embassy entrances.

Meanwhile, the production Diplomacy Buildings have a Mughal Empire Set set ability with the Embassy, meaning that you can collect additional cultural goods once a day by placing the unique buildings Chhatri, Baldachin and Charbagh anywhere close to the Embassy.

The Production Bonus (4x) has the same chance to occur when collecting from the Embassy as when harvesting a cultural goods building. The production bonus is working for both the Rupees and eventual Cultural Goods recieved from having a set bonus.

Buildings[]

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

  • REBU.png Residential buildings

At the start of the settlement, the player will have one of each type of building available in the building menu: the Bhavan, the Rice Paddy, the Alley and the Groomed Path. 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: Coins coins and Supplies supplies, except from the roads which requires Rupees rupees.

Any Alleys or Water Canals built outside a chain will only give the basic amount of diplomacy. The following table list the extra bonus you get for each connected building in a chain and the amounts are additional. There is no limit on the length of added bonuses to the chains as long as you have available settlement space cleared from eventual Impediments in the way.

  • The Alley has to be connected to the front Embassy Stairs. All Alleys in the chain have to be lined up vertically. Alleys will provide no bonuses if connected to the back part of the Embassy.
    • If you for example build a chain of 5 Alleys you will get (5x24) + 5 + 10 + 15 + 20 + 25 = 195 diplomacy
  • The Water Canal has to be connected to the left or right side Embassy entrance. All Water Canals in a chain have to be lined up horizontally. The left and right side counts as separate chains.
    • If you for example build a chain of 5 Water Canals you will get (5x24) + 10 + 20 + 30 + 30 + 30 = 240 diplomacy

Mughal Empire Set Set Ability Bonus
The Chhatri, the Baldachin and the Charbagh has a set mechanic with the Embassy.
