Steam says Total War Three Kingdoms is coming 23. So it would be cool if you would have time to look at it within the ned of the week. There are a lot of new mechanics so I'd say it would be best if you just made a basic version with Infinite Money, God Mode for Battles, Population Surplus and 1 Turn construction. Research isn't quite the same so I dunno if it'll work the same for you to make that 1 turn. (Well the Yellow Turban faction (1st day DLC you get for free up to 1 week after launch) has a more traditional research tree but the others don't)
@Ankiplank good morning, i'm certainly that inf. items should have effect for most static materials such as plugs, antibiotics, matches etc. If anything, just use easy craft cheat to construct for your requirement.
