The Maya are one of 18 nations in vanilla Rise of Nations. They have the Power of Architecture, based on the Maya historical proficiency in monumental architecture; being some of the first and finest builders of great cities, with a mastery of masonry and a stunning and sturdy architectural style; leaving many construction achievements well-known today, and many other yet to be discovered, still standing somewhere among the dense jungles of Yucatán.
The Power of Architecture Edit
- Cities, Towers, and Forts fire extra projectiles, including Cities without garrisoned troops.
- Buildings have 25% more hit points (including Wonders).
- Buildings are 20% faster to build (except Wonders).
- Buildings cost 25% less Timber (except Wonders and military buildings).
Note: Cities innately have half a projectile's garrison power, so that only 2 citizens are needed for the first arrow for a Small City, for example, while needing 4 for the next arrow. The Mayan "extra projectile" nation power only increases this by half, so that cities start out with one projectile, but need a full garrison power's amount of units, such as 4 citizens for a Small City, to have a second projectile.
Version note: Prior to version 03.02.12.0800, Mayan building hit point and Timber bonuses were 20% instead of 25%.
Unique Units Edit
