Achievements

From Imperator Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Imperator has 57 different achievements, all using the Steam achievements mechanics. Achievements have no in-game effects; the achievement just pops up in-game and then added to the player's Steam profile. It is possible to see the achievements sorted by the percentage of users that managed to complete each achievement by going to the game's global achievements at Steam (for more accurate numbers one can use the Steam web API).

The difficulty of each achievement varies; some achievements are very easy (e.g. befriending two other rulers), while some are more difficult (e.g. control all spice production as Mosylon). The below list groups the various achievements by a difficulty level as assessed by the wiki editors (uncategorized - UC - achievements haven't been assessed yet).

Achievements can only be gained in single-player ironman games started in the grand-campaign. They can be earned while playing older versions of the game as long as the given achievement was present in that version.

It is not possible to gain achievements if the checksum has been changed - either by tampering with game files, using mods altering gameplay mechanics (graphical mods do not affect checksum), or if the game installation has been corrupted. NOTE that running the game in debug mode changes the checksum, rendering achievements impossible.

Several achievements contain Easter eggs.

List of achievements[edit]

The "Notes" column lists helpful short tips/strategies.

The Imperator Rome.png column denotes achievements which can't be completed without the use of DLC mechanics.

The "Ver" column indicates in which version a certain achievement was added. Achievements cannot be earned prior to the version they were added in.

The "DI" column is for difficulty as assessed by wiki editors. VE = Very Easy, E = Easy, M = Medium, H = Hard, VH = Very Hard, I = Insane, UC = Uncategorized.

Ally with Iberian nations, conquer the other Megalithic tribe and try to attack Carthage while they are engaged in an other war. Take enough territory from the Carthaginian proper (not their client states) to reduce Carthage to Regional power status, then maintain an alliance with them.
