Spoiler New Settlement?? Mughal Empire

Does someone have a good feel for the timeline?
I somehow remember that these settlements are releases roughly every 6 months?!
The Aztecs were releases when... beginning of the year?

I remember a developer in an interview a few years ago saying once the artwork is finalised it takes 6-10 weeks to build and load all the functions so I am thinking end July soonest

Hmm, 10 days left in the event, 30 days till new one, wonder if they will finely release this after announcing it months ago.
 
Went thru most of the literature on Mughal empire, but little information on the linked diplomacy buildings.

My enquiries:
1) Linked building as in DIRECT PHYSICAL connected to Embassy's four EDGES?
2) When are the addon Daily Bonus given out? Daily as in daily counter reset?



Above is 4 linked Water canals or 8? or None, since it is not placed on a framed rectangle?
(A: NONE, I found it the hard way after revamp my layout.)

3) What if I got both Water Canals and Alleys? Combo Daily Bonus?

If I could make such mistakes, many others will do similar, please ensure this restrictive play/limitation is made known CLEARLY.

I thought it had to be in the designated area on the embassy.

Then you must not have read the official announcement, which should always be read first. https://forum.beta.forgeofempires.com/index.php?threads/cultural-settlements-mughal-empire.14771/
Because it literally says in no unclear way that Water Canals should be connected to the side entrances and Alleys to the front stairs of the Embassy. And they give extra diplomacy as a Chain Bonus if built correctly. Not a daily bonus.

Also written in the announcement the other diplomacy buildings gives a Set Bonus of some daily extra cultural goods if adjacent to the Embassy (as in anywhere in direct physical contact). The daily bonus gets a bit higher for each unique set building adjacent to the embassy. The daily bonus is collected when you harvest your Embassy.

These basic mechanics is exactly how it works with Chains and Sets in the main city.

I don't blame him because they used the same chained building icon for both sets and they have two chain building mechanics for different buildings which aint KISS design. (keep it simple, stupid!)
