Re: do coal bonuses stack?

That looks optimum for total global prosperity, but if your talking about prosperity for a village then the max number of copper is bound by what will fit within the borders. Everything else should be coal, minus what is required to activate it. Unfortuneaty it took over half my game to enable the u...

Re: Punished into submission?

You can also use the water giant's ocean and mountain giant's mountain abilities to make a village submit. Oh ho, I had no idea! I guess you just watch the villages health to know when to not go to far? do armies/mobs need to be present on the village, or can you do it to them when they are afield?...

Re: do coal bonuses stack?

I was hoping this thread would get some other folks to start experimenting, but I just cant seem to Lignite any interest. I dont think I'm going to get to this tonight, but I'll fool around some more on Friday night. As long as I get a good synergy to pack 1000 tech and 1000 research with only miner...

Re: Destroying the Mackerel

I think fish range should not extend onto land, and land animal range should not extend onto sea. Other than that, I think they're fine. They're useful in specialized ways. A dedicated design can let you rack in a high score, but who cares? when I need large amounts of food to complete a project (an...

Re: do coal bonuses stack?

oh, it does not save the state of your unlocks with the game? I do have a save at that point, I can probably just play through the end of this game with some different synergies to get the remaining unlocks, and then come back to it.

Re: Top Scores

That's it. I'm going to destroy the mackerel. I don't think they're really that unbalanced. You can get a really high score if you focus on only building villages that give bonuses to them, but what kind of world do you have then? its basically worth playing that world once for the novelty, its not...

Re: do coal bonuses stack?

Oh man im pissed. Got the world setup right, got enough ambassadors built up of different types to achieve the higher level bonuses to level up my forest towns so that I could get the other ambassadors I needed to pull of the coal upgrade. kept a few towns alive, beat a couple others into submission...

Re: Top Scores

12002 on a 120 minute game. It ticks up slightly higher by the time the clock runs out, but this is where the save was so I just grabbed a screenshot there. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=147053388 I think someone else had a more optimized layout of the same strategy, and had ...

Re: do coal bonuses stack?

man, it takes a couple hours to level up a tier 3 bonus! and if it turns out not to work, I'll have to re-load and re-grind the little ambassadors before I can take a different upgrade path. I mean, if reading the wiki to help optimize my prosperity is spoiling, then I guess I'm guilty of that too. ...
