Re: not a single insect

Bees - pollination bonus to nearby plants (just flowering plants? maybe too complicated), food and wealth from honey. Ants - food and research from anthills; awe bonus for adjacent ants from massive colony. Or they could start at 1 range, but gain 1 more for each ant within range up to 4 or 5 from m...

Re: Weird problem, could not proceed on second tutorial

As described. Could not even get past the first dialog; I could click on next, and it registers with a clicking sound, but the game simply do not proceed. The game do respond to clicking on the question mark, however, but that still do not let me proceed into the game. Are you sure it isn't paused?...

Re: Greed: The literal worst mechanic.

It takes all of 3-4 seconds to drop down an aspect. Once you get level-2 hunt or predator aspect (which can be as early as just 5 ambassadors), you can start getting 5+ danger per aspect. And you can generally stack multiple aspects on one animal. Controlling greed with danger requires a fair amount...

Re: Top Score Strategies

Judicious use of bears can also push the score. I'm not sure how much danger you could safely absorb, but... 1 point of danger on a bear tile becomes 2 food and 12 wealth. So, for example, a 75-danger Bear tile yields 150 food and 150 gold from the circus, plus another 170 gold and 6 food per tile o...

Danger

Anyone figure out what determines how much danger a village can sustain? It seems to be nonlinear. I suspect stuff like project completion or terrain types may also be impacting it a little, because it looks sharply nonlinear over a few points. Knowing the exact formula would certainly help when pla...

Re: Top Score Strategies

I was actually wondering - what happens if you get a village rebelling with a very small army ? Do they reinforce as prosperity rises? Do they dispatch new mobs as they train new soldiers? Will they still start and complete projects and give ambassadors while rebelling? Will they start wars while re...

Re: Top Score Strategies

Do multiple Coal play nicely when covering the same awe source, then? That does buff them. Significantly. I don't know if I'd call it "nicely"... you'll have massively negative awe for your village. But you also get good prosperity, so if you're prepared to use danger (or just run away) to deal wit...

Re: Top Score Strategies

DAMN, nerfing coal before I got a chance to use it with my great tea leaves. I had a map layout that was going to score over 150k score. Could probably have pushed it over 200k, but was trying to avoid greed by using danger, which used up half the map on great white sharks. Tea-Tea-Coal-Tea-Tea-Coal...

Re: Patch Online (1.0.4.0)

So, any idea what sort of time-frame on the next patch release? Are we talking days, weeks, or months? Or is it a state secret?

Crash on leveling mountain

Every time I tell the ocean giant to lower the mountain in that a spot with a particular map layout, the game crashes (I reloaded twice to make sure it wasn't just a one-off thing). Layout before telling ocean giant to lower mountain (he's standing in the spot he'll be lowering at): http://i1026.pho...
