Small Land classEdit

Small Land units can move into any terrain, and can be transported by all transport ships and helicopters. Because these units are small, they can't occupy tiles or cities even if they have attack capabilities. Have speed bonus along Railroads.

A Messenger is an official that carries your dispatches and is authorized to deal with foreign dignitaries. Messengers can't perform any hostile actions against other cities, but can defend your own cities against enemy covert operations.

If a foreign unit is alone on a tile, you may attempt to bribe it with your Messenger. By paying a sum of gold the unit will immediately become yours; the exact sum depends on the status of the unit and that of the civilization owning it. However, units belonging to Republican governments may demand huge amount of gold to be bribed. Bribery when not at war will cause a diplomatic incident.

The actions available to Messenger in a city are:

- "Establish Embassy": This action always succeeds, and gives permanent contact with the city's owner, as well as intelligence on their tax rates and technology. Each player you have an embassy with that knows a technology reduces that technology's research cost to you.
- "Investigate City": Your unit attempts to report detailed information about the city: its status, what buildings and units are within, and what it is currently producing.



DiplomatEdit

U.diplomat 
  • Cost: 20 shields, Upkeep: 1 Food, 3 Gold
  • Moves: 3, Vision: 1

 * Slowed down while damaged.
 * May fortify to stay put.
 * Can pillage tile improvements.
 * Can be airlifted from a suitable city.
  • May load onto and unload from Sea, Coaster, or Helicopter transports even when underway.
  • May be disbanded in a city to recover 50% of the production cost.
  • Defends cities against diplomatic actions.
  • Is invisible except when next to an enemy unit or city.
  • Never imposes a zone of control.
  • Not subject to zones of control imposed by other units.
  • A non-military unit:
 * Cannot attack.
 * Doesn't impose martial law.
 * Can enter foreign territory regardless of peace treaty.
 * Doesn't prevent enemy cities from working the tile it's on.
  • Can do the action 'Establish Embassy' to some individual cities.
  • Can do the action 'Investigate City' to some individual cities.
  • Can do the action 'Sabotage City' to some individual cities.
  • Can do the action 'Steal Technology' to some individual cities.
  • Can do the action 'Incite a Revolt' to some individual cities.
  • Can do the action 'Bribe Enemy Unit' to some individual units.
  • May acquire veteran status.
 * Veterans have improved chances in diplomatic contests.

This type of unit has its own veteran levels:

Veteran level Power factor Move bonus


attaché 100% - secretary 105% - envoy 110% - ambassador 115% -

A Diplomat is an official that carries your dispatches and is authorized to deal with foreign dignitaries. He may also undertake various covert operations with the intent of harming your opponents; Diplomats in your own cities defend them against such actions.

Many covert actions may be attempted even in peacetime, but the more aggressive actions will be discovered and cause diplomatic incidents, giving an excuse for the breaking of treaties by a Federation or Democracy, or a nuclear-armed regime otherwise restrained by the United Nations.

If a foreign unit is alone on a tile, you may attempt to bribe it with your Diplomat. By paying a sum of gold the unit will immediately become yours; the exact sum depends on the status of the unit and that of the civilization owning it. However, units belonging to Republican governments may demand huge amount of gold to be bribed. Bribery when not at war will cause a diplomatic incident.

Diplomats can also perform a number of actions in another player's city, although each Diplomat may attempt only one action. Most of these actions have a chance of failure. Also, any enemy Diplomats or Spies in the city will oppose hostile actions, as will the enemy Leader in games with leaders; in this case, either your unit or the defending unit will die (if you go up against the Leader you will always die). If the defending unit dies, you lose one movement point and may try again.

The actions available to Diplomats in a city are:

- "Establish Embassy": This action always succeeds, and gives a permanent contact with the city's owner, as well as intelligence on their tax rates and technology. Each player you have an embassy with that knows a technology reduces that technology's research cost to you.
- "Investigate City": Your unit attempts to report detailed information about the city: its status, what buildings and units are within, and what it is currently producing.
- "Sabotage City": Your unit attempts either to disrupt all the city's work so far towards its current project, or to destroy an existing building in the city, at random. Once built, Palaces and Wonders cannot be sabotaged, and attempts to sabotage City Walls or any building in a capital each halve the chance of success. Sabotage may only be attempted when openly at war.
- "Steal Technology": Your unit attempts to learn the secrets of a random technology known to the city's owner but not to you. Technology may only be stolen once from a given enemy city by Diplomats. This action may be attempted even when not at war, but will cause a diplomatic incident.
- "Incite a Revolt": In return for gold a foreign city will change allegiance and join your empire, bringing along all nearby units that call it home, but reducing its size by 1. Units in other cities remain in the enemy's control, but units outside cities are lost to both players. The exact sum depends on the status of the city and that of the civilization that owns it. It is not possible to incite a rebellion in a capital, and very expensive in any city governed by a Fundamentalism or Democracy. Incitement may be attempted in peacetime, but will cause a diplomatic incident.

In some game strategies, hordes of Diplomats can be used to wreak havoc on the enemy. Little wonder that Diplomats are often viewed with suspicion and fear!

Diplomats built under Federation government will start at the first veteran level (secretary).

This type of unit has its own veteran levels:

Veteran level Power factor Move bonus


informant 100% - handler 105% - agent 110% - spymaster 115% -

A Spy is more skilled in the arts of espionage than her Diplomat predecessor.

She can perform all the functions of the Diplomat; refer to the Diplomat entry for more details. Unlike a Diplomat, a Spy may also survive an operation in a foreign city and become more experienced as a result. Spies are also more effective than Diplomats at defending cities against foreign Diplomats and Spies.

A Spy can also be used to:

- sabotage an enemy unit (reducing its hit points to half), if it is alone on a tile and the players are at war;
- poison the water supply of an enemy city (reducing the population by one);
- steal specific technology (with a reduced chance of success);
- steal further technologies from a city which has already been stolen from (although cities become more resistant each time they are stolen from);
- sabotage predetermined city targets (with a reduced chance of success).

A Spy that survives the more aggressive actions (sabotage, theft, inciting rebellion, and poisoning) escapes to the safety of the nearest friendly city.

Spies built under Federation government will start at the first veteran level (handler).

This type of unit has its own veteran levels:

Veteran level Power factor Move bonus


beginner 100% - seasoned 125% - senior 150% + 1/6 expert 175% + 1/6

Engineers are similar to Workers or Builders, but they work twice as fast, move twice as fast, and may gain experience from work enabling them to work even faster.

With knowledge of Combustion, Engineers may also perform more radical terrain transformations than Workers, Builders, Settlers or Migrants, with the "transform" order. Examples include conversion of Tundra into Plains, or even Ocean into Swamp in some circumstances (when on board an ocean-going vessel, on a tile surrounded by sufficient existing land). See the Terrain Alterations section for more details.

Being the Big Land unit class, Engineers have restricted mobility (rough terrain such mountains, swamp, jungle require roads which can be prepared by Workers or Builders).

You can build Atomic Bomb units when you have the required Nuclear Fission advance, and the Manhattan Project wonder has been built by any player. Bombers or their successors can carry Atomic Bomb.

On impact, the blast will destroy any unit in an area 3 tiles wide (3x3 squares for rectangular grids), including friendly units. Any city within the blast area loses half its population, and land tiles within the blast area are subject to nuclear fallout.

Similar to pollution and global warming, the risk of global nuclear winter increases with fallout. If nuclear winter occurs, terrain across the globe changes into desert, tundra, and ice. Settlers, Migrants, Workers, and Engineers and (for fallout on water) Transports can clean up nuclear fallout.

TIP: You may be involved in a situation where you've invaded an enemy country en masse, but the enemy cities are too strong. Before using a Nuclear unit, assemble a gang of cleanup units next to the city and have them ready to fix the fallout on the same turn it occurs! This minimizes the chance of nuclear winter. Eco-friendly nukes!
