When NPCs become rebels, they have checked a variety of things first. They check the same things before they decide to become a citizen again.Respect & Happiness
- The worse (lower) these gauges are, the more willing the units are to go to the hills (change occupation). Their faction(s) impact their respect.Courage
- If units are very courageous they are more likely to change their life style (occupation).
Young men - Turning into a rebel is a trait that young men
seem to exhibit in greater numbers. THIS IS NOT A Politically Correct simulation. Deal with it.Democratic Satisfaction
- Have you been playing with votes or denying the demands for free elections? That encourages creation of Rebels.
Small army - If you ignore military preparation, they will come more freely.
If the Tropican
has no children - No kids, no guilt and more power to the people! Or so it is reported.
Selected Edicts - Some edicts directly target rebels or personal liberty. If you are dancing on this pin head then you should consider how it affects the previous points/comments.
What rebels do most often is disrupt your daily life. They like to hit targets of opportunity, low risk to them and high irritation factor to you. If you have lots of rebels, don’t build airports out in the middle of nowhere trying to cut down on the overall pollution. This is like rebel candy, they can’t resist. At least they can’t unless you have a means to defend it. So, to keep the rebels away from the candy be prepared to build a guard post near such places. The farther a building is from an area of military control, the greater the likelihood of incurring a rebel assault on the unprotected building. Remember that to build Guard Posts you’ll need some Generals. More Generals mean greater risk of Military Coups. No, it’s not easy, but that’s the challenge of being El Presidente.
Police stations don’t help in rebel conflicts. Rebels fight soldiers, police fight civil disturbances (Uprisings) and reduce crime. Police Stations & Policemen don't help fight Rebels. They counteract "radiated" crime based on buildings. Policemen arrest (per edict) army members participating in a Coup and fight Uprisings.
Remember soldiers are MALES! It IS possible to help make them happy. (Showgirls)
