FAQ

Q: How do you send goods to other players who aren't on your island?
A: Use the world map (or a link from a message they sent to you or from one of your advisors) to locate their island; click on it to get to the island view. Click on the city, transport goods. If they are not in your own island group, you must research expansion before you will be able to reach them with trade boats. (Darian)

Q: What should I do?
A: Read the Wiki under useful links, get on IRC, try not to ask questions that are already answered, spend some time reading the thread. (Devoir)

Q: What should I research first?
A: Well Digging first. I'd suggest then doing Paper, then going up the economy line to Wine Press. If you're in a built up area (or paranoid), then go military up to professional army. After that, go up the seafaring line to expansion. (Karenna)

Q: Some dude is attacking me! What do I do?
A: If the attacker isn't bright enough to blockade your port first, build just one offensive ship (trade ships don't count) at your drydock. This will repel the attacker. Ram ships only take 34 mins to build, which is shorter than the time it takes to attack you from the next island over! If you're blockaded, and stand to lose a lot of resources, just destroy your Trading Port (NOT your trading POST). The bigger the trading port, the more they can haul away. (Karenna)

Q: My people are pissed at me, since my city is crowded!
A: Build a Tavern, and make sure you are serving the max amount of wine possible. A L5 tavern can get your city up to size 10 easily. After taverns, work towards getting a museum, and exchange cultural goods with other PAers. Museums have zero upkeep, so are the best long-term investment in growth you can make. After Museums, research Holiday for extra happiness. (Karenna)

Q: Do cultural goods take diplomacy points?
A: No, they take cultural points, one cultural point is gained per level of museum. (Devoir)

Q: I'm attacking a city, with a level X trade port. How many resources can I expect to get?
A: Once you win a battle, you get 20 minutes to pillage. How much you gain is directly related to How many trade ships you have available, how many resources are protected by your opponent's warehouse, and how large the trading port is:
A town without a trade port can load 3 resources per minute.
A town with a level 1 trade port can load 10 resources per minute
A town with a level 2 trade port can load 30 resources per minute
A town with a level 3 trade port can load 58 resources per minute (Karenna)

Q: So I have a Hideout, and I want to spy on my enemies! How do I use them, and what can they do?
A: Read this: http://board.ikariam.com/thread.php?threadid=2087 Of particular note is that each spy in an opponent's town acts as a battering ram when you attack! Each breach in the wall gives your army a 10% bonus to attack. So, a L10 wall can seem insurmountable, but plug in 5 spies before the raid, and you can gain a 50% attack bonus! (Karenna)

Q: So walls make me _VULNERABLE_!?!?!?!
A: No. From the Wiki: "Each "possible breach" is a spot that can be rammed by a battering ram each turn; if that is done, the enemy gains 10% OFFENSIVE bonus for each breach opened (maximum number of breaches is that of your wall). However, this does not render your wall useless because the wall still gives all your troops defending the town a 3-point offensive bonus per level. So your troops still come out on top.

The only time your wall could remotely be considered a liability is if it is not up to your town hall level, and the enemy creates maximum breaches. At higher levels, this WILL hurt, because while the enemy gets 10% attack per breach, you're getting less than the full defensive bonus, AND the 3 point per level extra attack can't compensate for the percentage attack bonus your enemy gets." (Devoir)

Q: My account she is hacked! I can't login! Abloo abloo abloo!
A: You're using the Ikariam.org site. That's for Euro trash. Use the Ikariam.COM site. (Karenna)

Q: How do I send someone gold?
A: You can't, you can only trade gold via the Trading Post. (Burtletoy)

Q: Why do I suddenly have 50 of each resource?
A: Congratulations, you researched wealth. Now continue on to wine pressing, to use that wine up. This is also the appropriate time to put your people to work gathering the local luxury resource. (Darian)

Q: How do I move troops?
A: Similar to how you move resources. Click on the target island, target city, then deploy troops. You need a barracks at the destination to support the troops being transported. (Devoir)

Q: How do I set up a cultural exchange?
A: Send a message to the person you want to make an exchange with. In the drop-down box, choose "Kulturgüterabkommen anbieten" instead of message. They will be offered a cultural goods treaty. If you receive such an offer, click accept in the message to accept it. Note: You can only initiate an offer when you have museum slots available. But you can initiate more offers than you have slots, so it is possible to get a surplus that you will then build into. You can also accept offers at any time. (Darian)

Q: Who wants to exchange goods with me?
A: Don't post this, just send out requests to people in your aliiance or in the list of PA players by Darian. Everyone wants cultural exchanges. (Devoir, updated by Darian)

Q: What do these german words mean?
A: From the translation thread. (Darian)
Spoiler:

Q: What happens when I switch my research from one thing to another?
A: The points get transfered, you don't "lose" research, but if you finish something you will have to restart the original topic. (Burtletoy)

Q: What happens if I hit 0 gold?
A: Citizens will be pulled off research and possibly resource gathering to ensure you have positive gold growth. You will also lose military units due to their upkeep requirements. (Devoir)

Q: Am I attacking my own city?
A: No, blame it on a bad german translation. If the military advisers background is not red then it is just your own troops returning/being transfered. (Burtletoy)

Q: What is this I hear about pushing, and how do I avoid getting in trouble for it?
A: Pushing is the providing of materials from a lower-ranked to a higher-ranked account, with no tangible benefit received in return. If you receive any goods in trade from a lower-ranked person, you must send back equal value to them within 48 hours of the shipment. (Darian)

Q: How does one contact the Game Operator to legitimze an extortion demand or for other concerns about pushing?
A: Go to the board for the game, create an account, then send a PM to the proper GO from the list.

Q: How many spies do I need to hide for ever?
[A]A:[/B] Your town hall level gives an opponent an advantage of 6% per level.
Each spy on defense gives that opponent a penalty of 15% per level.
So a level 10 town with a level 12 hideout has an overall increase to spying risk of +120% on every mission. Including getting into the town in the first place.

    Burn the World

    Burn the World is a special PA project designed to add much needed emotional content to the online experience that is Ikariam! We have taken it upon ourselves to examine how we, the burners and wreckers, can enhance the user experience through organised campaigns of burning and looting. We believe that through our efforts Ikariam will continue to ascend into the hearts and minds of Internet users everywhere.

    So how can you contribute?

    All PA members, especially those belong to a PA guild can contribute through building strong defences (more about that later), identifying good target alliances and most importantly having a sizable strike force ready for deployment. Our aim is ensure we have multiple strong strike forces in each of the PA alliance hubs so we can leverage our size and strength against miscreants.

    Our terms?

    So you might get sent messages by those who have been selected to participate, messages that beg you for reasons, or for relief. What should you do? First, demand they pay a large compensatory sum for your troubles and secondly, a poem of at least 100 words on the glory of cats, cat stroking and why backwards cat stroking is to be desired. Any school of poetry is welcome as we are sophisticated types.

    Current targets

    Possible Targets

    These guys have representatives in the 2X:2X. Working on more data

    Cat Poetry Corner

    While we may be self declared bastards seeking to implement our reasonable policy of Burning the World this doesn't mean to say we do not enjoy other more cultured pursuits. Like cat poetry. Yes, the PA alliances are also on a mission to find the greatest Poet on Ikariam: Beta and test their ability to write poems about the simple joys of owning cats. In return, we might refrain from attacking them.

    Roll of Honour


    Durandal, Therenianville, 18:17, 11/05/2008. Procured by Kalkino

    Lying on the sun-warmed carpet, sleeping in peaceful repose.
    Dreaming of what? Heaven only knows.
    Perhaps it sees the universe, and the truth of life’s joys.
    Or maybe simply catnip and little fuzzy toys.
    But this frazzled looking feline, lies there all the same,
    Not afraid of lounging around, not feeling any shame.
    He seems to have a message, for busy people like me,
    A very simple message: to live life and be free.
    For when I watch my cat sleep, I know one thing is true,
    I shouldn’t have to worry, about a game where I’m being attacked by you.

    Spoiler:

    darklordsgx, Charlesville, 32:26, 14/05/2008, procured by Kalkino

    The One Cat
    My cat, a wonderful and comforting friend,
    The one that is always with me, until the end,
    The one that always comforts me when I'm sad,
    The one who calms me down, when I'm mad,
    My cat, always a delight to have,
    The one which sleeps curled up in your bed,
    The one that has a small and furry head,
    The one that clears my head when all is blurry,
    My cat, a dear and graceful friend,
    For when I am with you, my fears are gone,
    For when you were gone, tears were formed,
    For I will never forget you, even after I'm gone.

    der grund warum ich katzen liebe,
    ist das ich neue freunde kriege.

    The reason why I love cats
    Is that I gain new friends
    And find in a game
    In which the way/path be the goal/aim/finish

    Cats
    Gracefully Pouncing,
    with her slim tail in the air,
    she flies with such grace.


    Tamorlane, in response to an inane request

    He leaps from shadow dark as soot
    through fetid air to bite my foot
    then runs across the barren floor
    a tainted, evil carnivore
    he lays there in the noon sun's gleam
    ensuring that each claw is clean
    what sin of mine do I now pay
    to live in feline fear each day?
    now from my bed I dare not leave
    I know the creature waits beneath
    to slash with feral undead speed
    and rend my ankles til they bleed
    I curse you spawn of hell with tail
    and pray for peace to no avail


    The Captain Message Torchwood HQ [67:88] 18.05.2008 17:47:32

    The day goes on, the night enters, they arise from the place, they creep, lurk waiting to pounce on their prey.
    The wonder as loners, hunting, feeding from whatever moves.
    The hunters of houses, the eliminator of pests.
    They are a persons friend, a mouses enemy, so the night ends, they go to sleep, return to the house, and are as friendly as pets.


    Psthyp on 2:85, 27 May 2008, c/o Theheroo.

    No cold philosophy, no cynic sneer,
    Checks the unhidden and honest tear,
    What little difference, and how short the span,
    Betwixt thy instinct and the mind of man.

    who knows .. maybe soon i'll have this inscription on ur citis gravestone.

    From Chaseb of Venegence, 28/5/2008, procured by Burtletoy

    It conquers its domain
    Slyly being a mouses bane
    It moves without a sound
    And if looked for, rarely being found
    Its those yellow eyes in the dark
    And if agitated it will leave its mark
    A hunter by birth
    For ages its been a ruler of the earth
    All this surely fits the profile of a cat
    But deeper still is the one of the house
    These are the special case of all feline
    They make a sad day perfectly fine
    Hunter by night but friend by day
    They stick by your side no matter what you say
    They love to sit on your lap and sooth your soul
    Royalty of the earth under your control



    Karenna 29/05/2008, care of Karenna

    The Laser pointer shines a bright red light
    The orange tabby pounces down on it
    The spot it seems to move without a fight
    That damn red light it gives my cat a fit

    I think things are running slow. I attacked an undefended city with 3 archers just now, which I hit 6 times a day, and it actually had to run through a battle round to figure out that I won this time. Also, it seems to be really slow about adding in the loot, nothing's showing up yet and it had 15 ships last time I hit him.

    Do you have any substantial sulfur resources at the town underneath blockade? If someone is using a routine complement of ships to blockade you, but you already have enough resources, you can start building ships "under" the blockade, and they won't automatically engage. So if your blockader is being careless and you have ballista-making supplies, you can amass ballistas for the duration of one leg of the blockade (8 hours, I'm assuming) and beat the snot out of the incoming blockade force.

    Normally I would as well, but I got a nasty surprise once when a 2 sword recon party went out after an inactive that was being port guarded by an alliance mate. It took me three days and about a grand in sulfur to put that little vengeance effort down. Now I base the pillage party on gold costs - am inactive raid has to cost me less than 5k in upkeep. Since this cherry was so close, I was running a full party at him. Net was about 15K gold. My first raid is *always* overkill. Then based on audience response I tone it down. Not so lucky this time.....

    Do you have a crystal island?

    I do, but the crystal mine isn't highly developed. I'm going to have to pillage most of it.

    I'm going to have to buy most of mine. :P I love my marble and wine too much.

    At least you can afford to buy yours. Even my the local economy didn't completely suck, I don't have gold-rich targets to pillage to finance large buying operations.

    Sorry Turtleboy,

    It seems the town I sent the 3K wine was under blockade. This probably happen while the shipment was enroute, since you did not indicate you were under attack.

    Anywho, let me know where to resend. I'll be more than happy to send it no charge, as I am planning my vengeance on Squad11 (53:25). Spies are on their way, but from the score, it looks like a sweet target anyway.

    # Name: Squad 11

    # Gold Score:1,276,519 (34,721)

    Let me know where you want your shipment. =)

    And so begins the process of upgrading to level 3 governor's mansions...

    No whining from you. I'm working on my level four mansions.

    Do you have a crystal island?

    I do, but the crystal mine isn't highly developed. I'm going to have to pillage most of it.

    I'll go for a sixth city before I upgrade my GRs past level 3. That fourth GR level takes a heck of a long time to pay itself off.

    Quick question: do walls count towards military score? I see someone with about 80k gold and 400 military score, and was wondering if that means it would be safer to wait for my blockade to set in before attacking. If it's just a wall then I can start my looting earlier. Guy I'm looting is Racistfatman @ 63:98 if anyone wants to join in. With a name like that it just makes the looting all the more sweet.

    400 = 80 * 5 = 5 slingers.

    Classy chap right here. And no, it wasn't censored in the message. That's gotta be against terms of service or something. :|

    Are those the correct co-ords? I get water when I input those. Anyway, I don't guarantee I can help or anything, but even a couple of feint attacks on him might give him pause for thought

    Apparently I have a mild case of dyslexia, 16:42

    I'm sending Honor a message telling them to cease all blockades NOW. We've generally gotten along with them pretty well, but if they don't stop, shit is going DOWN.

    Any updates? I feel world wang I starting!

    My troops have emerged triumphant. I lost fully half of them, including two doctors and my cook (they will be remembered), but obliterated his entire garrison. I've managed to net enough gold for five trade ships and enough wine to last my colonies for months.

    To be honest, I had to buy the ships to hold the wine.

    I've read on the wiki about decent prices for luxury goods ~8 if I remember correctly but my only source of sulfur atm wants 35 a piece, is this price exorbitant?

    The Wiki price is referring to the price is someone just wants to recoup the lost income from having the workers harvest the good. Selling for below 8 gold means you're losing money. It also means if you ever see someone selling stuff for below 8 gold, grab that deal.

    I've been playing for a week or so on Gamma since that's where a good friend of mine plays. I would have loved to join the rest of PA, but as much as I love you guys hot blonde girl wins out.
