The Map

The map is done mostly by Nevada with the radar map base by Hereje





Building Tree

Constructing buildings in IBFD is a bit more complex than in BI. The diagram below is a representation of a typical build tree (the building in the higher level is necessary to build a building, for example a church is necessary to build catacombs or abbeys)


farms lvl 2+
market lvl 2+
gov't house lvl 2+
tavern lvl 1+
execution square lvl 1+
academies lvl 1+
wall lvl 3+
port lvl 3+
health lvl 4
amphitheatre lvl 2+
monuments lvl 2+
roads lvl 3+
temples and churches lvl 3+
catacombs lvl 1+
abbeys lvl1+
smith lv 3+
barracks lvl 4+
stables lvl 3+
siege engineers lvl 3+

Buildings and Resources

Moreover, some buildings need a certain resource, if this resource is unavailable in a region, the building will cause an economic loss (This is done to emulate importing the said resource). In some cases, if the resource is available, then it will result in an economic gain (exports), still in some cases, the resource is a necessity, and the building cannot be built if the resource is unavailable


Recruiting your units in IBFD depends on your culture.

Barbarians (

infantry - gov't buildings
cavalry - stables


infantry - barracks
cavalry - stables


infantry - barracks
cavalry - stables

Steppe People

infantry - barracks
cavalry - gov't buildings

Desert People

infantry - gov't buildings (low level) barracks (professional soldiery)
cavalry - stables

siege engineers are simply that, buildings to build siege engines, archers are trained in standard barracks or called up from the population.

Smithies are also necessary to train heavily armored units. Since the building requirement to train units is bugged in 1.6, this has been decided to be the best solution. For the cultures that do not recruit from barracks/stables, these builings give morale and experience bonuses, and are still worth building.
