Builds with no upkeep?

Post by Guest on Fri Jun 03, 2011 12:15 pm

I've taken on a position with a lot of buildings etc and a costly upkeep. I'm looking at what can be closed down and what is actually costing me money. Is there a list (or could we create one) of 'upkeep free' builds?

Most civic works cost 10,000 each April unless stated otherwise in the rules (page 12-13).
Most military/naval works cost 1,000 each April (page 22-23)
You should have received a list of all expenses the position paid last April with the startup turn. Find the number of institutions paid for and start counting, it should be no problem determining what cost money or not.
I have a tendency to accumulate institutions, in one game I started with 1 and now its 50...

Thanks for the tip. That's what I started doing but there are 40+ possibilities. {sigh}. Lol

As far as I can remember/work out, its things like granaries, statues, sewers, nightlighting, new ports and fortifications that don't have on-going costs...

But I'm afraid I agree with Ardagor (afraid because I can't think of another way of doing it, not afraid because I agree with him Wink ), the only way I have ever done it is to make a list and count...

Do you think an Arsenal costs upkeep? 10k?

I am pretty sure an Arsenal and stud farm do have the 10K upkeep, going by a recent-ish annual expenditure from one game
