Thread: Barracks city - best layout?

  1. #1

    Default Barracks city - best layout?

    Am planning to build a purely barracks city and looking for feedback on the layout as follows

    13 cottages lvl 9 = 58,500 population
    13 barracks (12 @ lvl 9 + 1 @ lvl 10)
    Other buildings lvl 9 unless stated
    Feasting Hall + Inn (lvl 1 only)
    Embassy
    Relief Station
    Marketplace
    Beacon Tower
    City Walls
    Town Hall (Lvl 10)

    Resource fields
    25 Food Lvl 9 = 112,500 + city/hero upgrades
    15 Lumber Lvl 9 = 67,500 + city/hero upgrades

    Other resources transported from other cities until troops built up then NPC raiding to supply these missing resources.

    Not sure if too many Cottages as other posts seem to indicate a maximum of 10/11!

    Also do I need other buildings in the city?
    Stable for Relief Station growth?

    Thanks for any considered advice

    You should consider getting an academy for the military tech.
    If you need a building to upgrade another, stable for releif for example, demolish a cottage and build it as much as you need, then demolish stable when the releif is at lvl 9

    But most of the miltary tech is there from my other cities so do I need an academy in this city?

    Will probably not build as many cottages as shown at first, but leave some spaces IN CASE I need to build some other buildings for upgrades!

    yes. you only get the benifit from academy research when the new academy hits the level required to research it. For example, infomatics requires a lvl 3 acd. in your second city, you'll get all the infomatics research you've done when the new academy gets to lvl 3
