→Silk Road trade posts: Updated info on trade route value when involved in warfare
The [[Horse Lords]] or [[Jade Dragon]] DLCs allow any ruler to build trade posts along the Silk Road land route between China and Europe. Silk Road trade posts can only be built by the owner of a province, and cost 50 gold to build.
The Silk Road is visible in the Economy and Trade Zone [[Keyboard shortcuts#Map modes|map modes]]. If a Silk Road province is occupied during a war, trade will be
unable to flow through it to provinces further west - instead, alternate Silk Road paths will receive increased income. Both the trade zone controlled by the province owner and the total trade value along the entire route affect income.
Note that even without trade posts, Silk Road provinces receive passive boosts to taxes from castles, cities and temples.
