How to obtain

Game InfoEdit

A Great Person, specialized in production.

  • Abilities:
    • Can build the Manufactory Great Tile improvement
    • Can Hurry Production in a city


The Great Engineer has the ability to "Hurry Production," which instantly adds a vast number of 20xProduction5 Production points to the current construction project in the city where he currently is. This is usually enough to finish all but the most massive wonders in just one turn. Note, however, that projects, such as the Manhattan Project or the Apollo Program, cannot be hurried with a Great Engineer.

The Manufactory tile improvement is also a long-term benefit for a specific city's production capabilities. One or two well-placed Manufactories can quickly turn cities into troop training centers or wonder production facilities.

There are many different ways to obtain "free" Great Engineers. Purchasing a Great Engineer with 20xfaith5 Faith does not push back the spawning pool, whereas all the following do:


The amount of production of a Great Engineer on Normal speed is calculated using the formula[1]

300 + (30 * city population)

So in a city with a 20xPopulation5 Population of 1 the Engineer only generates 330 20xProduction5 Production, while in a size 15 city it generates 750 20xProduction5 Production.

For Epic speed it is

450 + (45 * city population)

and for Marathon speed it is

900 + (90 * city population)

Historical InfoEdit

"Great Engineers" are the men and women who get things done. They construct the monuments, the roads, the information networks that improve the lives of those around them. They invent new processes for building high-rises or rolling steel; they dig canals; they irrigate deserts. They keep a civilization moving forward.
