Location of all monuments throughout the map

There are two types of great projects: Monuments and Canals. A list of great projects can be seen in the ledger page “Great Projects”. The current effects of the great project can be seen in the tooltip for the image. Double-clicking anywhere on the line moves the map to the great project— if its location has been discovered, and if it has been built(in case of canals).

Monuments

Leviathan spawns historical monuments spread out across the world (with a focus on South-East Asia and Europe). The monuments exist in provinces and are shown above the buildings of a province. Some monuments can be relocated.

Monuments that are active have three possible types of effects: Provincial, Areal, and Global. Provincial modifiers adjust the province the monument is located in, areal modifiers affect all provinces in the local state (including other countries' provinces). Global modifiers affect the owner's country the same way a national idea would. For each Monument's modifiers— see the list below.

Unless otherwise noted, the requirements refer to the culture and religion of the province and not the state religion or primary culture of the country.

Upgrading

Upgrading a monument costs money and takes a long time according to the table below.

Great project level icon upgrade build.png Level Expenses.png Upgrade costs Time Icon.png Upgrade time
Great project level icon tier 1.png Noteworthy level Gold Icon.png 1000 ducats 10 years
Great project level icon tier 2.png Significant level Gold Icon.png 3500 ducats 20 years
Great project level icon tier 3.png Magnificent level Gold Icon.png 7000 ducats 40 years

Spending either Gold Icon.png 250 ducats or Manpower.png 5000 manpower speeds up the upgrade by 2 years. This can be done multiple times.

Canals

Canals are late-game 'great project' decisions[1] that primarily function to ease the movement of fleets between theaters of war. They allow for anyone to pass through, regardless of their relation to the canal owner. There are various levels to constructing a canal, like monuments, each with varying bonuses. Each canal provides a provincial bonus of Trade power.png+10/+20/+30/+50 trade power per level, Trade power.png +1%/+2%/+3%/+5% global trade power, as well as some Yearly prestige.png prestige when complete.

Only independent nations can build canals. To initiate construction the player must have:

  • Level Administrative technology.png 22 administrative technology
  • Own specific Province icon.png provinces or be owned by a vassal.
  • A large amount of Gold Icon.png ducats for the cost of the canal, (varies between canals).

There are 3 canals that can be built: the Kiel Canal, the Suez Canal, and the Panama Canal. They cost Gold Icon.png 10,000, Gold Icon.png 20,000, and Gold Icon.png 30,000 respectively and take 10 years, before being influenced by events. The Kiel canal has fewer negative events than the other two, and costs the least amount of ducats, though it is the least useful. Like monuments, they can be sped up by 2 years by spending either Gold Icon.png 250 ducats or Manpower.png 5000 manpower. Unlike monuments, once built they will be at the highest level, 'magnificent level', already.

During construction, events[2] will occur where the player will have to choose between investing monarch points or wait an additional length of Time Icon.png time before construction can be completed. The duration of this setback is proportional to the total number of days the canal will be under construction from start to finish, so choosing to delay construction will make further setbacks worse, if they occur. Conversely, good events that advance canal construction will lessen the progress-related impact of both good and negative canal events in the future. [3]
