  • The budget for training your garrison can be set from either the city finances interface or from the garrison training interface. This allocates how much money you wish to spend on training directly from your treasury (similar to how Garrison Recruitment works) so money will need to be diverted to your treasury to make it work.

I'll try to keep the next update from taking 9 months, though it promises to be a bit larger in scope and will probably need a longer testing period. Have fun. :)

They were phased out in v0.24. The units still existed for save compatibility, but with v0.26 they are out of the mod.

This appears to be an oversight and one we're looking into correcting with v0.27's update.
