M2TW Kingdoms:

Factions:

New Spain is a faction the Americas campaign based on the Spain of the original game; it features a few new units but makes extensive use of later-game Spanish units that don't get used as often in vanilla campaigns. It is the most financially powerful faction on the map. It has access to the most diverse mercaneries, and is unbeatable by normal means (i.e. by natives) until the emergence of New France and New England. It features extremely powerful infantry and is the only initial faction with cavalry(a huge advantage); most infantry halved in unit size with 2 hitpoints but most cavalry is regular sized with 2 hitpoints. Its units have a steep recruiting cost and above average upkeep, but due to New Spains vast economical power it should not be problematic. Buildings and units are unlocked for this faction through ranks, gained through prestige as described below. Missions rewards are raised, with even minor trade agreements being able to give you 2000 gold and 4-6 powerful units regularly . They are the only catholic faction until the emergence of New France/England but do not have to deal with the pope. They are often regarded as the most simple faction to play as a player, and the fastest expanding faction with the AI.

Starting area

Cuba, containing Havana, and Vera Cruz, which is on the mainland, slightly south of the center of the map. The Spanish are the only starting Christian faction in the campaign. They are also the only ones initially able to recruit merchants. Their guides (spies) and explorers (diplomats) will often come with movement boosting traits.

Prestige

Prestige is necessary for advancing to higher technologies. There are several ways it is gained:


Missions An "Easy" mission (Usually talking to another faction, or recruiting an agent): 2 Prestige points

A "Moderate" mission (Usually an easy mission made harder by distance): 5 prestige points

A "Hard" mission (Taking a Region): 10 prestige points

Failing a mission incurs the above prestige points subtracted instead of added

Victories over your enemies

Victory (When outpowering the enemy): 1 Prestige points

Victory (When odds are 0.50 - 1, i.e. the enemy slightly outpower you) 2 prestige points

Victory (When odds are <0. 50, i.e. your power ratio is 1 : 2 to the enemy ): 3 prestige points

Defeat Penalty is incurred in reverse (-1 point when outpowered by 0.50, -3 points when you outpower them 2:1 etc)

When capturing, sacking or exterminating a settlment 3 prestige points

When you lose a settlement, penalty is incurred in reverse (-3 points)

Capturing a original capital of an enemy yields 5 prestige points (-3 prestige points (normal) penalty)

Destroying a faction equals 10 prestige points The penalty for the reverse, obviously doesnt matter


Other Ways

Killing a enemy family member: 3 prestige points

Getting Trade rights: 3 prestige points

Having a treasury over 50000: 1 point a turn

Having a treasure over 100000: 2 points a turn

You will receive 1 point per turn regardless of what you do. The AI recieves 2


The Spanish Consulate

The Spanish Consulate is located in Havana, and it has replaced the Knights of Santiago building. (What follows is uncertain)

In this campaign two sources of mission exist for New Spain; missions from the Council of Nobles, and missions from the Spanish Consulate. When the Spanish Consulate is destroyed you will no longer recieve missions and can therefore be lazy (and gain 1000 florins as well!). Spanish Consulate missions increase prestige if completed and reduce it if not, this will get rid of the missions so you cant fail them!
