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.

    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.

    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.

    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
    # Town size: 17
    # Player: Matt_1863
    # Ally: B11
    # Total Score:10,597
    # Military Score:26,632
    # Gold Score:1,276,519 (34,721)

    Let me know where you want your shipment. =)

    Just an update, I'm not going to be able to hit this guy tonight, but here is what he has as of tonight

    Troops in Squad 11
    Unit Quantity
    Slinger 10
    Swordsman 10
    Phalanx 10
    Ram 5
    Archer 15
    Fleets in Squad 11
    Ship Quantity
    Ram-Ship 7
    Ballista Ship 13

    So be fairly easy to crack.

    For great justice!

    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.

    Yea, I'd been hitting another one of his colonies for the past few days. He was defense-less at S11 Wine @ 52:25 and his blockade came from Squad 11 @ 53:25. I've asked for my resources to be returned and I'll give him one more day like I promised, but after that I'll get the resources back one way or another.

    There's a little randomness in the amount of damage produced. How big were these assault teams? Borderline victory or decisive victory?

    I was using my zero mil formation of 10 swords, 5 archers, 1 ram, 1 cook (1 spy inside). The walls were all 60% bonus or less, and I was hitting him with no losses over the past few days. I could take getting beat down by a wall, I guess, but the empty combat report kind of threw me off.

    What? Man, I pillage inactives/zero mil scores with 2 swordsmen!
    What you sent is way overkill, and there's no way they should have lost...

    Are you sure that your attack didn't land at the same time of a previous attack? If you hit a target too closely to one of your previous attacks the battle report will be blank.

    I guess I have a spy in S11 Crystal @ 52:26 as well, which is an undefended with a level 7 port a level 4 town wall no barracks and a level 3 shipyard. Guess I'll hit that and the wine colony a few times tonite while he isn't on with just a gunman or two then break into his capital tomorrow.

    I have a spy in every one of his cities! :)

    Update: Still no barracks in defense-less S11 Wine @ 52:25 even after my multiple attacks and all his forces seem to be at his capital as far as I can tell.

    I'm Voro over at 15:65. Please don't rape me. And with that out of the way, when should I go about joining a PA alliance? I won't be able to offer much for a while, since I'm only just waiting for Well Digging to finish. I've got crystal native to my island if that matters, but I'm not sure how developed it is. Highest people on this island are a L12 and a L4, so it can't be that developed. Hell, the lumber mill is only L2.

    Build 1 ram ship and it is likely that no one will bother you unless you start shit. It takes too much planning to coordinate a blockade and a landing force in my opinion.

    I tire of the travel distance between my marble colony and my others. I'm packing up and moving to the 2X:2X area.

    I'm so glad no one has decided to attack me yet. The discrepancy between my town hall level and my wall level is so enormous. D:

    If Honor fucks with you, let me know. Their leader and I are on good terms, I think. He'll get the guy to stop I imagine.

    Man, Catapult ships are a bitch. I haven't really bothered due to the massive time investment, but now I'm reconsidering.

    Ok Turtle/RU/Darian, I am in negotiations with darklordsgsx for the procurement of a cat poem. I don't know if he will deliver, but I live in hope. The dialogue so far:

    If anyone in the 2x:2x area has some marble and wouldn't mind trading for some sulfur in exchange, that would be great.

    Massing ballistas isn't going to do it, I tried that only to have them get slaughtered by his catapult ships. All of my other towns are building catapult ships but they take forever to finish.
    Got co-ords for this guy? I am intrigued
    I'm not really asking for help since he has 140k military, but you're welcome to try.

    Well, moving colonies is time-consuming. I think it will be worth it, though.

    What if this weren't a rhetorical question?

    That's my hope.

    I've placed some of my marble for sale on 24:22 in order to fund the movement of my troops to my new capital.

    Missed this, I assume you asked him to stop.

    I've been pillaging Honor inactives, should that be a problem?

    Slowly trying to put together a good cushion of diplomacy points, unfortunately, the only place I still have a lowish level embassy is Rhenius over by former EPA, where it takes me 26 hours to ship marble, grr. I'll get back to you guys on what I'll need there after I finish upgrading my Governor's mansion finally.

    I found 4 hours bad enough. 26? Eww.


    I miss my inactive target... I should have beaten him more when I had the chance.

    My next colony is going on 50:50, I think an alliance leader has an obligation to try and be as accessible to the alliance as possible.

    Either that or somewhere in WPAX, but I dunno whether absorbing 20+ guys is super feasible.

  • KalkinoKalkino Buttons Londres Registered User regular
    edited May 2008
    I don't think it is feasible to absorb WPAX, as things currently stand, perhaps if the mechanics or costs change in a good way we could, but right now it seems a lot of work just to get all the alliance letters the same. We could get the same effect by putting a note in each alliance's page "allied with XPAX", which wouldn't require you to invest massive resources.
