usually, if you play the 120min era, you can get 3+ ambassadors per Giant.

levels should equate to the amount of ambassadors, so i'm assuming 3 levels. someone could correct me on this.

I don't think ambassadors are limited to the Era you chose.

You can have 6 villages active at any time (I haven't been able to get 7 on the map so far)
If you complete the first project for each you get 2 giants with 1 and 2 giants with 2 ambassadors

From the wiki
After 6 ambassadors have been generated projects stop producing more.
After 14 ambassadors have been generated upgraded projects stop producing more.
After 22 ambassadors have been generated great projects stop producing more.

Having 4 giants you can have 5-6 on the back of a giant. But with the limited amount of time from short eras it is quite hard to achieve more than 2 on the 30 min game.

Also when playing the game without many unlocks it is nearly impossible to achieve since your limited to upgrades of lower tiers and thus can't easily complete the upgraded projects

7 is possible but they are almost stepping on each other ^^

There is a limit of 4 ambassadors per giant, plan accordingly if you're playing a 2 hour game

The wiki clearly states:
After 22 ambassadors have been generated great projects stop producing more.

4 giants (Swamp, Water, Stone, Forest)
Having 22 ambassadors divided by 4 giants
22 / 4 = 5.5

From this I assume that 4 is not the maximum ambassadors on a giant but rather 6

I've had 4 ambassadors on all my giants. When completing a great project after that it says an ambassador appears yet none do. In addition, in the part of the UI that show what ambassadors your giants have, there's only room for 4. It could be that if you do not put 16 ambassadors total on your giants and have another one appear, it might appear in addition to the already non-picked up one to allow you to pick a different biome. I dunno.

Oh, as for village limit, I've just managed to squeeze 8 into my current game http://i.imgur.com/jAsQ1vO.jpg

8 islands of 4 blocks, 7 oceans of 9 blocks and 1 ocean of 7 block (that equals up to 106 blocks total if you're curious and if my maths isn't wrong). I guess 9 would be possible if I were to do 7x8 block oceans and 2x7 block oceans. 10 would be a squeeze though but the absolute minimum blocks it seems there needs to be between villages is 4, meaning each village would take up 8 blocks, and so you'd be able to cram 13 in. Getting them all to move in before any borders would expand would be a challenge if not impossible though.

Hahaha, that's ridiculous! And it looks hilarious.
Well done, I didn't think that was possible.
