Jump to: navigation, search

Influence (InfluenceIcon.png) is a FIDSI resource used to perform diplomatic actions and implement empire plan policies.

A few factions have unique interactions with Influence:

  • The DrakkenIcon.png Drakken get +3 InfluenceIcon.png on terrain with Ruins due to their "Endless Excavation" trait.
  • The CultistsIcon.png Cultists can use Influence to convert minor faction villages due to their "Conversion" trait.
  • The MorgawrSmall.png Morgawr can use Influence to take control of roaming armies due to their "Catspaw" trait and un-pacify pacified villages due to their "Seeds of Dissent" trait.

City Improvements[edit]

This list includes any City Improvement that increases a city's Influence output, even indirectly. Some of the improvements listed have additional effects that do not affect Influence production, but for simplicity those effects are not listed.

Miscellaneous[edit]

Arcana[edit]

The Ardent Mages are able to research the Arcana of Authority technology, which unlocks the Pillar of Influence for placement. This pillar increase the InfluenceIcon.png Influence output of tiles within range depending on the Arcana level as shown here:

Level Effect Range
1 +1 InfluenceIcon.png on tiles within the pillar's range for 10 turns TurnSmall.png 1
2 +2 InfluenceIcon.png on tiles within the pillar's range for 10 turns TurnSmall.png 1
3 +2 InfluenceIcon.png on tiles within the pillar's range for 10 turns TurnSmall.png 2
4 +3 InfluenceIcon.png on tiles within the pillar's range for 10 turns TurnSmall.png 2
5 +5 InfluenceIcon.png on tiles within the pillar's range for 10 turns TurnSmall.png 2

Upon obtaining the Cold Engineering technology by completing Chapter 5, Part 1 of the Ardent Mages faction quest, the Pillar of Influence will produce an additional +1 InfluenceIcon.png on tiles within its range during winter.

Assimilation[edit]

The Kazanji provide an assimilation bonus of +5% InfluenceIcon.png on cities per pacified and rebuilt village, up to +30% InfluenceIcon.png.

Fortresses[edit]

The three types of Citadels that make the center of Fortresses and every Facility provides a bonus of +1 InfluenceIcon.png. The only exception to this is the Center of Influence Facility, which provides a bonus of +10 InfluenceIcon.png, and a bonus of +2% InfluenceIcon.png per Fortress you control on Empire, while giving every other empire -2% InfluenceIcon.png per Fortress you control.

Resource Boosters[edit]

The only Luxury Resource that provides a bonus to Influence is Dye Grey 256x256.PNG Dye, which provides +50% InfluenceIcon.png on cities when activated as a booster.

Technology[edit]

The only technology available to every faction that increases Influence directly without needing to build a city improvement or expansion is the United Empires Council, which provides a bonus of +100% InfluenceIcon.png on Cities. There are, however a number of faction-specific technologies that provide a bonus to Influence:

Quests[edit]

Some quests give lump sums of Influence as a reward for completing them.
