People of Rome 2 (P++)

Patch 18 and Empire Divided
People of Rome 2 adds a population mechanic to the game to add depth, immersion and an all round better gaming experience. Keep an ever watchful eye on how your population rises and falls and with it your own successes.

The first unit pack is now fully compatible with People of Rome 2! Forgotten Factions Unit Compilation by Will

Big thanks to Will and to Causeless for running him through the process.

This mod is for vanilla and will be added to both Vae Victis and Divide Et Impera. None vanilla unit packs not in the compatibility list are currently not supported.

Compatibility & Info For Modders []

Population in this mod is region based and represents the fighting age male population divided into 4 classes, Nobles, Warriors, Commoners, Foreigners with culturally specific variants of these given to each faction. All units will require population to recruit, the population class needed will be dependent on the units that you recruit.

Growth: Population will increase or decrease based on a number of factors including buildings, wars, settlement type, taxation and more. The tooltip shows an approximate growth and not an exact growth

Immigration: Will see people move to and from neighbouring regions within your empire. These movements are largely based on the ratio of each population class as well as a number of other factors. You can see how many people migrated to and from each region by hovering over the 3 people icon next to the regional population number

Economics: The size and ratio of the different population classes will also have economic and public order impacts on your settlements.

Conquest: When you capture a settlement, all the people of in that settlement will become foreigners and your citizen population will have to grow from scratch

I have two questions.

1. Is this being updated for RotR?
2. If the AI is not being able to use the classes how does it comes to properly work with recruits?

Your question has prob be asked many times before so PLEASE check comment history and the change notes for this mod before asking. I gets very tedious to repeat answers.

Have a look at the dei mod it explains this mechanic in detail,(this mod is built into DEI)

I love playing with this mod, but I don´t understand exactly how it works. How do foreigners get converted into other classes? It baffles me that even after 20 turns since the conquest of a region it still doesn´t have enough population to recruit an army.

Sometimes weird things happens with the population: I remember one time when I checked it and I had like 1K 2nd class, so I decided to recruit there units the following turn, but then they suddenly dissapeared.

I also find strange that even after 100 turns my 1st class population in my capital is really low.

P.S. I know about the mechanics such as low taxation, building certain buildings which provide a bonus for a specific citizen class, but still it doesn´t work for me. In my last campaign I´ve had low taxes and full temples in my region capital and I´ve only been able to have a reliable source of elite units from a region inherited from other faction (Join Confederation).
