The Luxidoor love expensive things, jewels, rare spices and exclusive ornaments. That is also why they are the most expensive tribe in Polytopia!
The Luxidoor citizens lead very comfortable lives, draped in the finest purple silk. But will they survive outside of their beloved capital?

–Tribe description

Luxidoor is the seventh tribe in Polytopia. Luxidoor is the only regular tribe that does not have any starting technology; instead, they start with a level 2 capital city (without a Workshop or Explorer, and so giving +3 spt). A Park graphic can also be seen, however it is purely cosmetic and does not give any points.

Luxidoor is a flexible mid-tier tribe which has the advantage of being able to use their starting stars to choose a tier 1 tech to suit their city's resources while also still having a level 2 capital by the end of t0. Additionally, they require less resources in their city to reach level 5 and get a Super Unit from their capital, as they start with two population already "harvested".

Lore[]

  • The Luxidoor tribe are real pimps. Flexing only the finest jewelry, they would rather die than be seen with anything less than exclusive silk garments.[1]
  • These wealthy snobs prefer a life of decadence from the safety of their mighty capital! A people of business, the Luxidoorian streets are lined with markets and a multitude of shopkeepers trying to peddle their wares to anyone with the cash.[2]

Tribe Celebrations[]

  • Luxidoor Tribe Day

    2020 Tribe Moon: Carts full of gold, jewels, fabrics, and incense flow out of the temple of Exigeluss, the God of Wealth, blessing even the poorest of Luxidoor with a life of extravagance. Of course, nothing is free, and the Emperor wonders what Exigeluss will ask for in return...
  • Luxidoor Tribe Moon 2021

    The 2021 Luxidoor Tribe Moon poster

    2021 Tribe Moon: Unlike other tribes, the Luxidoor democratically elect their Emperor. Of course, the richest candidate always succeeds, because Luxidoorians always vote for the wealthiest. The campaign trail is littered with promises of riches and displays of power to sway potential voters.
  • Luxidoor Tribe Moon 2022

    The 2022 Luxidoor Tribe Moon poster

    2022 Tribe Moon: The Luxidoorian Emperor always sets the “hottest fashion” which all Luxidoorians try to emulate, even if it’s impractical in the hot sun. The current Emperor prefers turbans, but the last one loved shawls.

    2023 Tribe Moon: Always feels good when you're spring cleaning and you find some money in the couch, right?

  • Luxidoor Tribe Moon 2024

    The 2024 Luxidoor Tribe Moon poster

    2024 Tribe Moon: The magnificent and wealthy Luxidoor are often regarded as stingy, but that's not always the case. Every Luxidoor city has a Naauou, or "Lucky Shelter", where patrons can offer some of their riches to help feed and care for their local animals, such as the mighty Phantrix.

Webshop[]

  • Luxidoorians always enjoy their sparkling Diamond Tea in these lavish jars. The finest porcelain of the Luxidoor mountains adds to their irresistible beauty. If you are ever invited to a Luxidoor Tea Ceremony, be sure to not decline, as it may not be well received.[3]
  • The Phantrix is a huge animal that has a special place in any Luxidoorian’s heart as the backbone of their grand empire. They are seen as a valuable friend, a useful pack animal, and the base of a hearty stew. This garment commemorates the invaluable contributions of the majestic Phantrix to the wealth and prosperity of the Luxidoor tribe.[4]

Inspiration[]

The Luxidoor are inspired by Indian culture.[5]

The Luxidoor tribe's turbans and elephants are common motifs in various Indian cultures.

Skins[]

Aumux Skin[]

The Aumux Mercenaries are ruthless, effective, and more willing to destroy their foes, desolate the land, and empty the treasury of their employers in their insatiable, all-consuming greed.

The splash screen for the Aumux skin in the Tribe Selection menu.

The Aumux skin was added in the second skin pack for Polytopia. They wear a modified turban with a golden mask covering their whole face, golden crests on top, and a slightly larger green gem.

  • The grass is entirely absent in Aumux fields and mountains, revealing only the black soil underneath with gold specks dotted on it.
  • The Warriors, Riders, Archers, Swordsmen, and Giants all have golden versions of their original weapons.
  • The Catapult is also made entirely of gold instead of wood, and uses giant green jewels as projectiles instead of rocks.
  • Naval units all have gold replacing their wooden parts.
  • They use the default city buildings, with only the fifth city building replaced by an all-gold one.

Trivia[]

  • In one early iteration of the Aumux skin, they had the name "Gôlyloki" and their description read, "With skills in battle matched only by their exorbitant fees, Gôlyloki mercenaries function as the personal army of the Luxidoorian Emperor."[6]

Trivia[]

  • The Luxidoor Easter egg gives players that do not own Luxidoor a small chance of meeting the tribe as an opponent in single-player games. This is officially an “apology” for Luxidoor being more expensive than other tribes. Before Moonrise, in single-player, disabling all but one tribe would force Luxidoor to be the opponent due to this Easter Egg, even if the player did not own Luxidoor.
  • Luxidoor "inherited" their trees from Kickoo. Before the release of Luxidoor, Kickoo had the trees that Luxidoor now has.
  • In update 2.0.49, Luxidoor was nerfed from starting with a level 3 capital with a City Wall to starting with a level 2 capital. Prior to this update, Luxidoor was widely considered one of the best tribes in the game. The level 3 capital produced 4 stars per turn, allowed Luxidoor to produce more units and outnumber nearby enemies in the early-game, and put Luxidoor closer to training an early Giant than other tribes. However, with this nerf, Luxidoor did gain a cosmetic starting park.[7]
  • The "leader" of the Luxidoor tribe is named "Loniiss".
