Now I would not want to give away too much now would I? At least not without making you waste an espionage probe. Wink

Well, I was going to post Travian on here but I guess not!

Yes, I do have no life outside of the internet.

If anyone else is interested it's http://www.travian.us/, Vagabond and I are on server 1. I bet you can guess Vagabond's name there, I'm emmytiel.

Very sorry for the double post, I'm not thinking clearly today (or ever...), I joined Astro Empires as weirdlilfaechild but with that migraine-inducing color scheme and the fact that it overrides the Firefox stylesheet settings I set up, I probably won't be playing much if at all.

Unless you want to live in travian and spend money to keep yourself from being burried in a heap of other players (= marauding groups of thieves and other such things) don't touch this game Wink

I don't know, I have yet to have any problems. Games like Black Nova Traders on the other hand...

Basic guidelines for playing Travian (personal opinions).

1.) Pay and RAID or be a farm.
2.) There is ALWAYS an idiot who thinks that sending catapults is the best solution for everything somewhere nearby.
3.) Find yourself a good alliance which is near to you. Playing alone isn't good for your health.
4.) Forget about allies, in Travian the diplomacy works in strange ways and alliances need to be self-sufficient. Everything has to be negotiated carefully before every action.
5.) Forget about Teutons unless you want to play often.
6.) Forget about Romans unless you want to play often AND pay often.
7.) Never raid a Gaul with an army that isn't numerically superior.
6.) BUILD CRANNIES
7.) In your first village build a residence. Building a palace is more expensive and only the main village can house resource fields of level 10+.
8.) The best place for a palace is a multi-crop (9 wheat fields), or mega-crop (15 wheat fields) village. Travian is about army (population is for losers) and the army needs to be concentrated on one place.
9.) Communicate and try to be polite. Catapult solution is VERY definitive.
10.) Senator and his colleagues are not as good idea as they may seem. Use them only when you are 100% sure that you won't lose them and only when there is no other solution.
11.) Never leave your attack units at home, that's the best way to lose them.
12.) Lone attacking unit is ALWAYS lost. Even if the village is empty.
13.) Avoid alliances with long list of allies, the never come to help and an alliance with too many allies is generally considered to be weak and filled with noobs = easy target.
14.) Attack only with units that are meant to be used this way. Attacks with units that have low attack rating are expensive.
15.) Raids tend to be tolerated by alliances if they aren't too frequent, send catapult or a ram and you may wake up with one village with 0 population.
16.) If that multi/mega-crop next to your village is yours, you have a good base for your army. If it belongs to different alliance, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM. Try to keep these strategically important villages under your control.

No offense meant SD, I was attempting a joke in my normal Oafish style.

I am actually excited about my progress on Ogame. Careful managing of resources has allowed me to grow nicely. With luck I am hoping to get all my upgrades and researces done today.

Well, now I'm working on research needed to get a nanite factory and then the terraformer, because the planet area seems to be more crowded every day...

I have been working towards that same goal. You are a bit closer to it that I am. I have also grown to the point that I am concerned about my neighbors getting jealous. So a lot of investment into the weapons, armor and propulsion realms.

I'll trust numbers for protection at the moment.

I am gearing up to work on recyclers right now. I keep seeing huge fields of resources floating around. And when I send a few probes I see no fleets in orbit or in their DF.

Should I be worried if the same planet in my system has sent 2 probes my direction? I guess I grew too quickly for their comfort. Very Happy My first cruiser should be on order this week. Twisted Evil

I have been probed twice now. Both times I sent my probes at them a few times. One or two at a time then all that I can fit in one fleet.

I do not think that I have made a single espionage probe. I was waiting until I was well defended just in case the person I probed got all offended.
