Imperator Rome gives you a chance to live up to the tales and heroism of the conquerors who made Rome the biggest empire at that time. One of the crucial aspects of this expansion is colonizing isolated regions and make them part of your empire. In our Imperator Rome Colonization Guide, we discuss the reasons to colonize land and how to do so.
Imperator Rome Colonization
Colonization, simply put, increases the stability and longevity when it comes to the survival of the empire. This is because, upon incorporating different lands into your empire, you bring in more resources indirectly, to your disposal.
This, in turn, allows you to construct more facilities and have more soldiers for your army.
As far as areas for colonization go, you can literally pick any land as far as it’s unoccupied and isn’t ruled under a unified political system. An unoccupied land with unorganized tribes inhabiting that region is ripe and ideal for colonization.
When colonizing in Imperator Rome, the strength of your empire is put into perspective. This basically refers to having a high Civilization level as this dictates the number of resident’s you’ll need to send over to colonize a piece of land.
If your civilization level is high one (around 70 Civic Power), you’ll simply need to send a single resident to occupy the desired area. You can also move in your armed troops to make the newly colonized land a military zone.
It should be noted that upon using a city’s influence to colonize an unoccupied land, you couldn’t readily use the same city again. This is because of a temporary debuff.
To get around it, the time limit can be removed by moving more residents into an unoccupied land instead of a single resident. Ideally, you can move 9 slaves (each costing 50 Civic Power) to continue to colonize lands without any breaks.
Upon successful colonization in Imperator Rome, you will incorporate the buildings and residents of the new region into your empire. Do note, their existing cultures and religions won’t be impacted.
