My idea here is to add some sort of devastation and/or development to the bonuses. You won't really gain much from something you just recently conquered.
I'm on it actually, I'm giving additional gold depending on the bonus level (bonus level increases the longer you hold it)
I'm working with the following formula:
min(MM, floor(BL / BIAT) * BM) * BV
MM = Maximum Multiplier (set in the mod configuration, default = 2.0)
BL = Bonus Level (increased when the player holds a bonus for a turn)
BIAT = Bonus Increases After number of Turns (set in the mod configuration, default = 1)
BM = Bonus Multiplier (set in the mod configuration, default = 0.1)
BV = Bonus Value
You're indeed not able to adjust bonus values during the game. I keep track of how long the bonus has been holded and reset this value when the bonus isn't complete anymore. I also keep track of who owns the bonus since a bonus can change from owner in 1 turn (1 territory bonuses in particular).
I'm currently not developing this mod cos I want to finish some other mods first before releasing this one, and it got some issues.
- atm it is actually possible to lose gold with negative bonuses
- there is an option for exponential growth instead of the formula above, but this needs a lot of work
there are also some features I want to add. Currently nothing happens when an attack on a completed bonus fails or a territory is lost but taken again in the same turn.
@player25253 if you like I can change it that you get less income (below the bonus value) if you just conquered the bonus
any suggestions? Feedback is always welcome
