Hi-

I did a search on the above topic and nothing came up, so if it's been discussed before, please send me a link!

Anyway, I know it specifically says that the British have a high villager creation rate from the town center. I recently played against a Sioux player and he seemed to create villagers faster than I did, even when I was constantly creating villagers at the town center.

Question: Is there a ranked list somewhere of all the civs that show which create villagers at the fastest rate from the town center and which create at the slowest rate?

Thanks!

Normally civs get villagers/settlers at a 25s rate.

Russia has 55s for 3 vills (one batch), Ottomans take longer but use no resources.

Sioux, Aztec and Iroquois have a fertility dance which increases the creation speed of all units, including villagers.

After British send Estates, all villagers take twice as long to train. They can now train them from houses too, though.

Can the British train settlers after they revolt from their houses? Ive always wondered that.

So as far as an "unadjusted" default spawn rate, I guess the British are the fastest then? I assumed that all civ's spawned at different rates to make up for different advantages/shortfalls. It says in the original AOE3 foldout that the British have "fast spawning settlers to create a strong economy."

Their TC spawns vills at the same rate as others, but they also instant-spawn a vill from each house.

the sioux will have spawned faster because he was most likely doing fertility dance
which is preety dam rapid with 25 vills ^^

The Estates card is useful if you have the food, am I right? Because you can train 20 settlers with 20 houses faster than 3 tcs, or 23 settlers a time!

Some people did expect the Spannish Inquisition, the writers. Other than the writers. Otherwise, NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANNISH INQUISITION!!! Well, there is the Queen, and the people carrying it out. Ugh...

It is useful if you fast industrial. It's usefulness goes away often if you get to industrial late and already have 99 settlers.

Against civs like Russia and France, it may just save your life from all that raiding. (Still a tough fight though)
