And stop e-mailing me with questions about how things work in the game. Use this FAQ as a guide. As a creative person, it pisses me off to no end to have my work stolen and publicized by someone else.

I can only imagine how my blood would boil if I spent months of sleepless nights, coding, and debugging only to have some punk frat boy enjoy my work for nothing. The well-rounded player is the type who can win tournaments.

Corrected a fat load of errata, most of which stemmed from me completely misreading everything on the screen during my first brief run-through. This will be the format and framework for all future revisions. By all means e-mail me with your impressions and ideas! Incorporated the multitude of reader submissions over the past month. So by announcing a release date, I give myself a time frame in order to get the work done. This is more about understanding the game in real game terms, and getting the first grasp on the basic strategies involved.

Odds and Ends are thrown in at the end. The mark of any good civilization is the breadth of its borders. Think of great nations in this, our modern world. Want a big, far-flung empire with millions of citizens toiling for your glory? They found cities, and only found cities. I recommend using Settlers for two distinct purposes: After getting your defenders and workers built in any new city, you should build in order: The short version of why you should build these is because they generate a base Culture value of 14 Culture Points CP per turn.

The long reason as to why you want to build these right away is apparent in the following:.

The game gives you a bonus for cultural structures that have existed for a significant length of time. The Temple that produces two CP in ancient times will produce many more as it becomes an integral part of your city. If people have been praying at the same temple, to the same gods, for millennia, it follows that the temple should become a revered cultural landmark, like the cathedrals of medieval Europe have become tourist attractions in modern times.


Complete details on exactly how to do this are provided in Chapter Ten, but some quick warnings are given here as a reminder:. The resistors calm down sooner or later, and if you want them to calm down sooner, let mmanual soldiers rest, rearm, and recuperate in manuaal newly-captured city, pacifying it as they go.

Small detachments are good for just about nothing unless you have a head-and- shoulders lead in military tech. Let your elite soldiers strike killing blows whenever possible. Leaders are well worth the effort and the risk. Armies kick ass so hard your enemy will still be feeling it every time they go to the bathroom for centuries afterward.

You need to make the turf around them conducive to growth. For that, I offer a simple choice: Workers are good for almost nothing if your civilization is wrapped up in a mahual match, because the lack of Zones manaul Control means that enemy units can sneak manuzl your territory and press-gang your workers. Personally, I rather like the fact that you can reforest just about anything.

Plains, Grasslands, even Tundra can be made productive, to the tune of one food and two shields. Mining Hills produces three shields and one food, and Mountains mnaual go from virtually useless terrain to a wonderful complement to an otherwise well-developed agricultural area.

All the food in the world will only make your citizens fat and lazy; you need shields to manuak them manuxl actual material with which to do work. Luxury resources, improperly distributed, will leave some of your cities happier than John Belushi at Mardi Gras and other cities more miserable than Eeyore.

See the theme developing? If you thought roads were essential, wait until you develop RAILroads. These beauties will not only shorten travel times, but make you more efficient as well. Talk about a return on investment! If you lack the resources, beg, borrow, or steal to get them. Your citizens are the heart of the beast!
