Build Cost[edit source]

This should be clarified whether it applies to both money and monarch power, or only money. Can someone confirm which is true? ~ Sweethalcyhs (talk)

Reductions in build cost affect only money cost. --Pookles (talk) 23:41, 17 December 2013 (CET)

Special buildings[edit source]

Like in EU3, this is one category of special building, right? Not only one special building? I can't imagine it would be anything else, otherwise the two forts in special buildigns wouldn't make any sense. If so, the wording should be changed to reflect this.

Template[edit source]

I've made a buildings template.

Not implemented on the page though, as it is best to do it all at once. We also need a color of green that shows up well on the blue background.


A temple is a structure reserved for religious or spiritual activities, such as prayer and sacrifice, or analogous rites.

Income.png Tax income: +1
I can set up a regex later that'll hopefully port all text to the new format, if required.
Also suggesting something like this for the colours:

(... or something...)

Solved the issue by extending the green/red templates to accept a second parameter (back). ~ Meneth (talk) 14:32, 3 September 2013 (CEST)

Clarification of Tax Benefits[edit source]

Can somebody clarify please: If I build a temple and my tax revenue increases by 1.0 is that per month or per year?

per year, it raises base tax which is the total amount of tax a province gives in a year--Sopbucket (talk) 21:07, 5 January 2014 (CET)

Building Destruction[edit source]

There should be a section in here that explains under what circumstances buildings get destroyed, like conquest destroys all, diplo-annexing destroys the lastest of each type, etc. I don't know if theses examples are true, that information is what I came here looking for in the first place.

Building Strategies[edit source]

I personally don't think the limitation of a constable to a base tax of 5 or higher is a useful restriction to pursue a province down the production building chain. The constable is really just a speed bump on the way to the more useful production boosting buildings. Several types of goods produced can far outweigh the cost of a constable building. This is more obvious for the top tier trade goods, but the ducat increase from production is 2 fold since the ducat increase is seen in both production and trade income. This is especially apparent if any significant profit is to be made from non-accepted culture provinces (no production impact is seen from non-accepted cultures).

Detailed list[edit source]

In my optinion, the detailed list of buildings should be removed for the following reasons:

  • It adds no additional information to the build summary table. (apart from some flavor text)
  • Because it is redundant information, it leads to additional and IMHO unnecessary effort when a patch changes the buildings. (like Patch 1.6)
  • I have updated the building summary table to patch 1.6, but didn't touch the the detailed list, because I hope we can simply delete it.

I'd like KaTiON's input first, since he did much of the work on creating this page. If he's fine with it it can definitely go. ~ Meneth (talk) 11:39, 31 May 2014 (CEST)
Completely fine by me, the wiki's a community and I like to see different people augmenting the works of others. KaTiON Portugal (Talk | Contribs) 14:38, 31 May 2014 (CEST)
Right then, removed. I think for the uniques and manufactory lists at least we should add the icons. Not sure about the "normals and specials" list. ~ Meneth (talk) 14:40, 31 May 2014 (CEST)
Added building icons for the three tables. If somebody doesn’t like it in the normal buildings table, feel free to undo the change. – Lillebror (talk) 20:45, 10 June 2014 (CEST)

Annexation[edit source]

I added a category for this, since I figure players would want to know what happens to buildings when provinces are annexed. There are a lot of contradictory details regarding this though. I cannot verify if buildings are preserved when vassals are annexed (not yet, have an ongoing game to test this), nor can I verify if manufactories are kept if inherited in a PU or diploannexing. If someone could just help investigate this matter, it would be great. --Grifen88 (talk) 17:11, 16 December 2014 (CET)

fort maintenance modifiers[edit source]

need a table for all the modifiers.Gendalf (talk) 22:12, 11 August 2015 (CEST)

Can you give an example of what's missing? Dauth (talk) 23:55, 11 August 2015 (CEST)
