Titanwarrior89 -> Questions....On the fence (11/22/2013 1:59:02 PM)

Thinking about buying but....

1.How many turns in the game....don't mind a Long games....just don't want a short one with building time chrunched up. So 300,400,600 turns?

2.Does terrain benefit the defender?

3.Map editor?

4.Can you setup the game where the AI will Not set up next door....gives more time to expand?

Thanks

Yeah, this is an awfully quiet forum for a brand new release.

doesn't look to be. thread with the most replies is a steam thread. the manual thread here is threatening it but still a few posts short. really need to combine them. having the community split up doesn't help at all.

You can set victory conditions...or set no victory conditions...and set pace up to marathon...which effects both research and production.
2.Does terrain benefit the defender?
Not Sure. however I have research tech that has given bonus's to the player within his borders.

3.Map editor?
Nope. There is no premade maps either--which probably means even the devs don't have one.

4.Can you setup the game where the AI will Not set up next door....gives more time to expand?
No more nor less than a typical Civ game. You can go huge maps with islands and likely end up on one alone but on a med size map with continents you may see someone right next door.There are no options for "set A.I. players at a distance" however being in XML I can see a mod doing exactly that.



Thanks

HI, CptHowdy I was only trying to help Titanwarrior89, not split up the community as you suggest.

Lots of gamers are registered with more than one Forum.

The developers of the game are answering questions in all forums, although asking the same question in different forums is not always a good idea, sooner or later someone is going to flame you.

I buy all my games from Matrix Games, combining games and expansions my list has reached 20 purchases in all.

If I suggested to someone to buy there game some where else because the forums were not very active that could then that could be suggested I was splitting the community,

But I will never do that.

Cheers

nah never suggested you were splitting the community. I do think it's bad form on the part of slitherine/matrix since one owns the other. really no need for two forums. a lot of these games are developed by 1-2 guys, why have them running around answering questions? consolidate.

Yes your right CptHowdy consolidate they should. Bringing all gamers to one forum or purchase site makes more sense than maintaining two sites for the same games.

Pooling questions, knowledge, resources to one site makes much more sense.

Does a city's radius expand? If so, how far?




eyegore -> RE: Questions....On the fence (11/23/2013 2:52:35 PM)

Yes they do, as long as you have the food. You can even pick what tile the city expands to inside the city view. This is set up as "pick next tile" so you need to do this before your population grows to increase the city...unlike Civ5 where you actually purchase the tiles anytime you have the money. You can see when a city is about to expand the same as in Civ games, on the city icon that displays how many more turns before it happens.
