I released also A) a more complex version with a lot more features but slightly reduced compatibility with major overhauls like radius or magnar mod etc..called "the slave mod (2)" and B) a hardcore version just as this one but with reduced profits for more challenge.
In ancient times slaves were an important source of income not only by exploiting their hard work but also like a "raw material and currency alternative" With this mod you can sell the slaves from a region you own so to earn money and improve public order.
1)Selling slaves There is a new edict called Sell slaves (iconed by broken chains) and by issuing this edict every turn the slave percentage of the region will drop by half and at the same time the income will improve dramaticaly according to the percentage of slave population.
This represents not only selling slaves but also the tribute paid for important aristocrat people held for ransom and the battlefield looting after a battle.(soldiers used to fight carrying their money with them.)
After Syracuse's final victory Syracusians gathered 4 shields full of golden coins from athenians who run for their life.
Also Alexander started his campaign with 180 talands (borrowed) and after only Granicus (i think it was Granicus) he gathered 150,000 (imagin that the annual income of Athenian league in its prime was 600 talands.
SO this type of income (plus looting) was the main source of income....Of course every turn their percentage in population will drop by half and so will your income from their sale.
The numbers were not chosen by luck but after carefull research and taking into accound the game economic model.That way you can actualy use all those battle captives for extra income and lower your public order penalties at the same time.
The downside is that while selling slaves corruption and local piracy will raise a little so you cannot benefit from prolonged turns of selling slaves.
2)Slavery buildings role Slaveries have now an important role to play.
A)First of all they reduce the rate of slave drop so you can keep selling for longer periods and profiting more.
B)Also they give reduction to construction costs (slaves working and building..) and now i think they actually worth their money.
C)they give small boost to food and 4) tier 3 gives additional 1 recruitment slot (slaves where used to harvest fields and to streangthen military ranks even by doing supportive works..)
This mod would not be balanced without the efford of MATVEI1293.
