I have a question:
I just downloaded the mod and started a new Game ( awesome character creation by the way ) and I noticed that I am told to own "4 acres of Land in the Town of Storm's End" . Now when I paid my troops the first wages I did not see any income from that Land I own and I cant seem to find any option to cultivate the land or manage it or whatever you can actually do to it.
At the "Lordlands and moneylenders " overview I can either buy acres of land or "buy and prepare uncultivated land". I am kinda confused: the first means that I buy land and just have it unused, and the second seems like "Buy new land and cultivate it"( so it does not use your previously bought acres of land?).
Do I have to use the option "buy and prepare land" to make use of my land?
Thanks in advance.
Like Seighfryd said, to collect rents from land you need to go there in person. Rents build up over a period of time, so check back after a couple of weeks.
The way land works is, there's a certain ratio of land cultivated to population of the city. For whatever the population of the city, a proportionate amount of land is worked. Any land above that limit is not worked, and so wasted.
You pay rent on all the land you own (50 denars an acre, I believe). You also earn income on all your land that is being worked.
Buying uncultivated land adds more total land to the city. This is useful if the city population has grown, and the existing amount of land is insufficient for supporting the total population. The downside is, though, if you buy too much then the total amount of land in the city exceeds the amount it needs to support its population, and the excess land is wasted. As such, you pay 50 denars for each acre, but you don't get any income from the land that isn't being worked.
It's a fairly complex system, so look up the Floris wiki - I think there's an explanation of the land mechanics on there somewhere.
