Continuous focus

See also: National focus

A continuous focus is a special type of focus that is unlocked once 10 regular focuses have been completed. There are a total of 9 continuous focuses available.

Having an active continuous focus comes at the expense of pursuing a regular focus as only one focus can be picked at a time regardless of its type.

As opposed to a regular focus which provides one-time effects, the effects of a continuous focus benefit the nation whilst the chosen focus remains active. An active focus requires a maintenance cost of Political Power –1 Political power per day. The focus can, however, be deactivated or switched with another at any time for no additional cost.

Clicking on a focus icon leads to the appropriate table row.

The dedicated control panel is located on the bottom left of the national focus tree. The player can see on the panel's top right how many focuses are still required (black/green leds) before the mechanic is operational. The panel displays which of the focuses are available for activation, if one is currently in effect and its relevant maintenance cost.
