So how do I stop Civ 4 from crashing when playing C2C? I'm in the middle of the classical era at around 800~ turns and each turn takes about a minute and has a tendency to crash randomly.
I turned down all the graphical options to low and it seemed to help a bit at least.

You mentioned that something fucked up in top score, isnt top score in 2050?

Romans/Poland/Mongolia

Poland and Mongolia = Settle where a lot of horses so you can do a lot of UU.

Romans just good enough to expand, because UA and Legio can build roads, so basicly you need a lot of Iron.

oh fuck you mean religious way... Then Aztecs pretty good and others that i already called, just take liberty after that take honour find camp and farm it or better two. Take piety and double faith from shrines, than finish liberty and honour. So you now gonna make a lot of gold/faith/culture due to killing barbarians that spawn from camp and enemy civs. At least thats how i played Denmark with Religion+Domination.

surprisingly so. the graphics, although obviously old, hold up pretty well and looks much better than other games from that period (DoW 1, empire at war, rome tw etc etc). the gameplay is exceptional though, the resource capturing style is a little strange at first, but it plays really fluidly with perfect population limits (in the sweet spot halfway between DoW 1&2).

still has a relatively large playerbase for a ten year old game too, with about 2000 regular players on steam.

I'd definitely recommend buying it, the sequel is a bit off though (the minimap is horrific and the screen is always a little too clustered). I am though obviously a biased source, but it is the highest rated rts on metacritic.

>>
>>127993487
Try going for domination or cultural victory instead. You can't win science with babylon. When you losing with science going to money route. Found religion quickly for Tithe and then grab a lot money from follower and trade. Then you can just buy tons of army and attack babylon before he get to next era.

Try starting with Honor and don't playing tall.

>>127994284
You should try Men of War, preferably with a fuckhuge mod that adds better penetration mechanics, like GSM for MoW:AS2.
Oh, and all the games past Faces of War are essentially the same.

Community Balance Patch ain't bad, it has some good stuff like the Nations' special abilities but I'm starting to dislike how they have changed the diplomacy.
It is nearly impossible to push another civ to start a war and eventually they will team up and declare war on you like you were Hitler.
It feels like it was made for a domination victory in mind.

doing the age of wonders tutorial now. I've found that the in-game encyclopedia is pretty lacking, basically what's written in the tooltip is all there's in it. Like I would've liked to know how wooden walls affected my city, but it's just "it gives ur city a wood fence LMAO".

pretty sad desu, game is fun FOR NOW tho.

Fear not, if this dies I'll make a new one (: and then it'll die and it'll be great

>>128041434
Does this support us free men of the seas or just the steam version?

>>128042639
That's pretty much it though, if you have done a battle already it gives a literal wooden wall in between your troops and theirs which you can use as cover for your troops.

It has some bonuses to ranged attacks and such too though.
>>
>>128043064
wait is every battle instanced then? I thought there might've been an autoresolve outside the tutorial other than the instanced auto-battle
>>
>>128043245
There is auto resolve but ye every battle can be played in the actual battle screen.
Chances are if the enemy is at the gates you probably want to play it out by hand, in which case you literally do get a wall for your guys
>>
>>128043494
so it isn't taken in consideration if doing the overworld auto-resolve? No defense modifiers for likelihood to win?

So I have the base Endless Legends game, what dlc do I get? Should I upgrade to the Emperor Edition? or should I not bother with any of them?
>>
>>128081849
they're all actually pretty good in their own right, the problem is they're all different

if you get any really the order (and reason) is
shadows (new faction) > guardians (quests/events) > lost tales (quests) > emperor edition (only if you have Dungeon of the endless) > echoes (doesn't add much, good music though) > emperor edition

id say wait for a sale for most of it though, everything but echoes and lost tales goes on sale 66%, and those two are already at 25%. if you feel like you need dlc to keep wanting to play though, get one of the bigger two, since they actually change the base game.

really everything is worth it, they all make the game better, but echoes of auriga and emperor edition are the only two that really arnt worth full price

Game is getting boring. These win conditions take too long to reach? Should ramp up difficulty for next run. I'm playing normal now, first playthrough so didn't wanna go crazy with the difficulty yet. Think I'll do the same thing I did with Civ 5 and just increase difficulty and map size by one notch each every time I complete the previous one.

You could try more of the Anno series 1404 is excellent and I think best in the series.

How about some other stuff like Rollercoaster Tycoon, Cimcity 4/Cities Skylines, Prison Architect or that kind of stuff.

Early game is more important than optimal late game set up

And it's not even that inefficient, most of the time 2 cities are just as good as 3 cities on the same number of usable tiles, 3 cities might even be able to pick up some extra tiles if placed right.

Figured it out. I don't think it can be automated though. Not in the way you want anyhow. It'll just drop the fuel on the nearest thing marked "colony" and pretty soon you'll have an asteroid that's mostly and explosive ocean.

God fucking damn it. Now it won't stop bugging me about "low fuel" When it's parked around a gas giant and actually gaining fuel.

Anyone help please.

Err, nevermind... again.
Had to tick the "tanker" box in the ship design screen to make it go away. I don't want it to be an actual taker that other ships refuel from, but that's not really an issue.

Quill18 is doing an LP of it on youtube.
Lots of fuckers trying the game now.
The wiki is a crapshoot on how patient you are with clicking refresh and not getting 508 errors.

You can watch him do it and he explains the game really well, so if you don't know anything about it learn from him before you try otherwise you're not going to get very far. Gotta know what buttons to press. Can't just click a ship and click somewhere.

You're playing the African Kingdoms?

Is it worth getting?
>>
>>128199009
He's talking about Dracula 2, the Risk map.

African Kingdoms is worth it. The new civs are pretty neat, as are...most of the new campaigns. If you don't mind some bugs, of course, but that's AoE 2 HD.

Okay I just rolled Drakken with random and I can see every player on the map already? This is super boring what the fuck what kind of exploration game is this what were they thinking

Fuck this I think I'm gonna reroll I feel like warmongering not playing a faction of sissy dragons who spoil half the fun of exploration at start of game

convince me otherwise

Drakken isn't about warmongering, it's about peacemongering.

They literally have an ability to force peace.

>>128204339
Indeed, and last game I felt like the AI was TOO peaceful. I was playing vaulters on normal and game was super fucking ez. I want a challenge, and I want warmongering. So time to reroll yeah? Convince to keep playing this Drakken game, I'm 2 turns in

This is my second game. I have no fucking clue. What should I know? I've got some serious catching up to do and I'm not entirely sure if this game's already fucked and I should just gg and reroll. The vaulter that spawned right next to me forward settled the exact place I was going to rush to forward settle right before me and that kind of tilted me so hard I went and took it over and I'm so fucking crippled actually I have 2 cities while the best AI has 6. Oh yeah 3 or 4 factions already closed borders to me as well

one of the most important things you need to realize if you havent already is, not every tech is good, even if its a faction tech, and not every unit is good, even if its a faction unit
it might not be the best, but its completely optional for a drakken to field 8 of his starting unit, but absolutely retarded for a cultist to do the same

from the sound of it, reroll. depending on what you are and what you're next to, even having a 1 region buffer could fuck your start over

>>128215314
AOW has good tactical combat but it throws so many battles at you that because the battles take so long (up to 42 units in one battle) you are guaranteed to get tired of manual combat real quick. AOW is a wierd game. HOMM strikes a nice balance between depth and fun. AOW goes overboard with the battle and is just tedious.
>>
>>128215905
that especially after the battles play out basically the same. It's really a shame
>>
>>128104031
SR2 is no longer in dev, its also a lot more fun than most 4X imo.
>>
>>128215995
Indeed a shame because the battles are actually quite good (when there aren't too many). There is something wrong with trying to be a 4x with settlers spam, decentralized production, slow movement per turn and HOMM rpg elements like XXL map containing hundred of neutral camps, heroes and long epic battles.

If AOW put more focus on campaigns and scenarios and heroes actually matter more aka Romance of the Three Kindgoms/Nobunaga's Ambition then you would have a really smooth game. Alternative if it had improved 4x elements and a less elaborated tactical combat it would be something cool and new (the battles in current 4x games are really weak).

>>128216494
I feel like the thrash battles are done way better in HoMM series. Not only do the enemy units surrender easier but since your army is composed of stacks instead of individual units losing 2 halflings isn't such a big deal. Meanwhile in AOW the units gain experience and are more irreplaceable in that sense and auto battle often loses troops it shouldn't compared to the manual grind.

I'm finding use for terraforming installations in my game. Since Luna built shit tons of it's own infrastructure I can just cart that to whatever planet and I'm good until the 50 installations get the job done in 5 years.

I am however super super fucking pissed that they don't work on Venus. Gotta have ships for that. So now I have 20m assholes on Venus with no way to make them stop growing and they complain about being at capacity all the time.
>>
>>128229864
I prefer the installations too for RP purposes but the ships are more flexible in their use and work fine on targets like Venus
>>
>>128230167
I think it's up to your engine technology. If you have magneto drives or better then you can build ships that haul more than 1 terraforming installation. Until then it's really easy to build the regular installations on Earth and use nuclear powered cargo ships to move them.

I never tried that yet.
Neither the tugs nor orbital habitation. I don't know the tonnage of the part but I just figured that something that floats in space and only holds 50k people isn't worth it.
In my mind that's creating some complicated part to house enough people who can only work ONE miserable mine.

To change minor faction village distribution, navigate to your Endless Legend World Generator file folder inside steam (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Endless Legend\Public\WorldGenerator) and open WorldGeneratorSettings.xml in Notepad, then Ctrl+F and search for "DistributeVillages". The next 5 lines control minor faction village distribution in the following order:
-Minimum distance between villages (default is 1)
-MINimum Villages per region WITHOUT a player starting in it (default is 1)
-MAXimum Villages per region WITHOUT a player starting in it (default is 3)
-MINimum Villages per region WITH a player starting in it (default is 1)
-MAXimum Villages per region WITH a player starting in it (default is 1)

Wait a minute...
I'm just finally starting imagining the advantage of tugs.
You have one class of ship that hauls shit around and uses it's engine all the time when it's needed. Big, powerful, and plenty of engines.
And you use that instead of having ok engines on all of your ships that won't even be using them all the time. You save parts, fuel capacity, and you're always guaranteed to have badass work ships around.
You can even combine it with cargo task groups. It also saves total ship tonnage so your shipyards don't have to be as big.

No anon, you are the weird. AoW3 is for people that like TB combat.

Complaining that AoW3 is not a deep 4X is like complaining that XCOM is not a deep 4X. Autoresolving battle in AoW3 is like wanting to autoresolve missions in XCOM...
>>
>>128242445
Tugs are great.
You can use them to haul mining equipment, cargo pods, gate construction modules, mobile fuel depots, point defense platfroms and anything that just sits on place for long time and doesn't need to be able to move immediately.

And the best part is that you only ever need to refit the tugs, everything else can be just left as it is so long as you make them with parts that don't need upgrades like Terraformers and crew quarters is only thing you need on a terraforming station. And then you only need to keep a small group of max tech tugs available.
>>
>>128242413
I was literally picturing that when I saw the thing was a carrier

I'm glad I noticed this when watching Quill.
When you're survey ship is surveying it will only do 1 body per tick if it's enough geosurvey points to finish it.
So let's say there's an asteroid that only takes 1 survey point. Whether you click 30 days or 1 hour it will only do that body in the 30 days. So what I do is when it hits the asteroid belt and it's a ship that isn't using conventional engines yet is I auto-turn 8 hours.
