Vassalage (Age of Conquest)

Filed under: Development — noblemaster @ 12:26


I completed implementation of vassalage for Age of Conquest ONLINE on Android. A vassal is depicted with diagonal stripes:

  • Duke/Duchess: thick stripes
  • Count/Countess: thin stripes

Each empire can have one or more vassal. Each vassal can have exactly one liege. Vassals will pay 10% of their tax income to their liege. For the standard type game, goal points are assigned as follows:

  • Self: 1
  • Alliance points multiplier: 0.35
  • Liege (vassal master) points multiplier: 0.29
  • Direct vassal points multiplayer (level 1): 0.41
  • Indirect vassal points multiplayer (level 2): 1/2 * 0.41

This basically means, you will get the full points for the provinces that you own yourself. You will receive 35% of the points from the provinces your allies own. A vassal will receive 29% of the points from his/her liege. A liege will receive 41% of the points from the direct vassal and 20.5% for the vassal below.


  1. Wow, this looks like there is a big upside for being a Liege as oppose to an independent king.

    How did you handle the canceling of any vassalization?

    Side note: is Vassalization a real word?

  2. Both parties can cancel a vassalage. There is an automatic 2-turn cease-fire.

    Vassalization might not be a word; I meant “Vassalage”!

  3. Outstanding! Any OS limitations for Macs for AoC V.3?

  4. No limitations, as long as you have Mac OS 10.4.2+. I anticipate V.3 will work better (faster, runs on less memory) on all operating systems.

  8. It’s not easy in the older version. I suggest download Age of Conquest IV if you can. Otherwise, just try to request them to become your vassal (you need to be a lot stronger though) and it should eventually work!
