Pharaoh: A New Era – Culture Rating Guide (with Workaround)

Sometimes you will experience low culture rating even when the overseers say that everything is perfect. In this guide I will explain cause and workaround for that.

Culture Rating Workaround


In the original game it was required to build a certain amount of artist’s stages and ensure they have enough workers in order to get to a certain culture rating. The overseer of diversion suggests that this is also the case in Pharaoh: A New Era (see image), however to calculate the culture rating it uses the number of currently running stages, meaning those which have active performances at the current time. This value is normalized against all built stages, so building more artist’s stages but having no one perform on them will reduce the culture rating!


Build enough Juggler Schools, Conservatories and Dance Schools to keep all stages running. As the artists don’t use ferries in this game you will need to place these buildings on every island separately if you have artist’s stages there.
