Mughal Empire

Your goal with the Mughal Empires is to help Akbar the great, to build a beautiful and flourishing city in his empire. To achieve your goal to build up a flourishing city, you will need Rupees. This resource is used to produce Cultural Goods (similar to resources from previous settlements: Copper, Koban, Deben and Cocoa Beans). Make sure to build residential and diplomacy buildings in your Settlement to produce enough Rupees, and go through the 20 quests to claim your settlement reward! Before you begin, remember that researching the technology Higher Education (late Middle Ages) is necessary in order to unlock the Cultural Settlement Mughal Empire. For the Mughal empire, you will need to gather new goods to progress, and you will also have new resources available to help you on your way: When you have collected enough resources, you're either able to unlock new buildings for the Mughal Empire Settlements or expansions.

Daily Bonus

H SS Mughals Townhall.png

With the introduction of the Ancient Egypt Cultural Settlement, we introduced a cultural cost to roads in Egypt. With that we also changed the amount of Cultural Currency at the start of the Settlement and a daily collection from your Embassy. This is the same for the Mughal settlement as well.

The puzzle

This time, you will find no additional interactive building on the outskirts of your raising Mughal city, meaning that there's no additional feature available upon completing 6 Cultural Settlement quests (e.g. Feudal Japan's Merchant, Aztecs' Courtyard, etc), although you can still get an additional reward by reaching this milestone.
Please be aware that you can place these diplomacy buildings anywhere in your city, but they will only provide you with additional bonuses if you properly connect them to your Embassy!
This time around, the whole Mughal Empire Settlement is the puzzle and also the minigame you have to solve. There are two types of diplomacy buildings, two small and three large ones, and these have chain and set mechanics to increase the beauty and production of your outpost.

The small diplomacy buildings have a chain ability, which means that you can attach them to your Embassy sides, or better saying, the entrances! When you connect these buildings, you increase the overall amount of diplomacy in your settlement.


You can either attach Water Canals to the sides, or Alleys to the front Embassy stairs (Alleys will provide no bonuses if connected to the back part of your Embassy).

Meanwhile, the large diplomacy buildings have a set ability, meaning that you can collect additional cultural goods once a day by placing unique large buildings in the adjacencies of your Embassy (anywhere close to the Embassy, not necessarily to the sides or in front of the main building).

There are three different large diplomacy buildings, and in order to fully maximize the potential of your settlement, you will need to build all of them. You can get up to three set bonuses, however, these are only granted by placing different set buildings! In other words, if you place three of the same large diplomacy building, you will only get one bonus, not three! So make sure to avoid repetition here.


The challenge in the Mughal Empire Cultural settlement is to connect all those buildings together which is not an easy task, as you need to decide which expansions are worth unlocking and which impediments should be removed, as you also need to make room for residential and goods' buildings.

Mughal Buildings

During your time helping Akbar the great, you will use advancements to unlock various residential, cultural goods production and diplomacy buildings. Please note the building costs scale with your own era, so the ones below are based on the Colonial Age costs: Below, you can see what building you can build at what time:

Impediments

Impediments are also present in the Mughal Empire settlement and they will restrict your building area, thus making each settlement a puzzle! Every time you start a new playthrough, those impediments will be rearranged, adding an extra layer of challenge to organizing the settlement. However, just like in previous settlements, these impediments can be removed with pickaxes.
