Re: Question on units inside cities

How would that work? Training is delayed? Defense value added to city defense value? Unit comes outside the walls and is attacked prior to the city being attacked? I'm not sure if a unit that is ordered into a city even defends the city currently (one that is doing nothing - no training, etc). I see...

Re: Question on units inside cities

Now that brings up funny images in my brain. An army taking a test while the city walls are attacked then handing in their papers while the roof collapses in their class room. Yeah, I agree and if I knew how to make mods I'd likely change that but one has to play within the rules. I just don't put ...

Re: Question on units inside cities

My understanding is that if they are being trained in a city then they contribute nothing, which seems a little extreme to me, as the men are there with their equipment and I'm sure they wouldn't site in their barracks or sit in the training arena doing nothing as the walls are being stormed. If a ...

Question on units inside cities

Do these units factor into city defense? What if they are being reformed or are in training? Apparently ships are protected if inside a port but I think that is only because ports can't be attacked. My observations lead me to believe that those inside a city contribute nothing.

Re: "Emergency"

Thanks. I went back to the previous save anyway so all is well. Just kept "emergency" in case it was important.

"Emergency"

What does it mean if, in the saved games menu in game, one of the possibilities is "emergency"? I'm afraid to open it.

Re: What am I Missing?

Yes, I did that and it has helped. I defeated the Antiganigs but the new Ardiaie/Athens federation declared war on me and stupid me, trying to keep the Roman juggernaut at bay, agreed with their demand to declare war on the German tribes and now I am being pushed back as I can't replace losses very ...

Re: What am I Missing?

I managed to avoid food riots by using Tithe, so am now beginning my expansion. I have most of the original Macedonian land now and have made peace with Athens and Sparta is struggling with Ptolemy's armies. I have just accepted Ardiaie (sp?) to the Federation, so I now have control of small cities...

Re: What am I Missing?

Thanks. I think I see what I was doing that kept things from getting better - I should not have raised the population support slider to 3/4. Still wonder how the AI is able to build so many warriors so quickly without food shortages. There may be something else I'm still missing. I'll try them again...

What am I Missing?

Re: easy, all options checked except the two involving research, Ordysian Kingdom I haven't been able to figure this one out although I suspect it has something to do with the supply rules: Seuthopolis keeps crumbling into ruins. Food is short at the beginning, fields cannot be cultivated, and it is...

Re: Frozen Units

I see; is there a way to foresee this? Generally I won't buy below 20 gold but I do train below that level. I guess one way would be to subtract all trades for gold to get a base number and keep that above 1 gold (I'm assuming a trireme is the most costly unit to upkeep in gold despite the slave row...

Re: Frozen Units

OK, gold has been scarce, generally about 18 at the start of a turn; I think it was 4.9 at the end of the turn. I'll check the use screen to see if it is short. The other two don't apply. EDIT: 1 gold left, unit requires 0.6 gold, and no stop sign. Doesn't appear that any of the three conditions app...

Frozen Units

OK, it seems I'm the current problem child. This has happened once before when I was awarded two settler units for completing an objective. What is this? A unit who, for whatever reason greys out (like when healed) and can not be moved permanently. With the settler unit, I simply sold it - didn't re...

I never got back to this but the issue was that this was my first game using the noob setting which has supply turned off by default.

Re: Aggressors - v1.0.7. "Strategic command" available!

Well, that isn't exactly what I meant although I understand where the poster was coming from. It's sometimes difficult to get the unit to hi-light if the unit stack is in a city and there is, say, a mine north of it. Once hi-lighted, it (the pointer) is often not in a location where double click bri...

Re: Noob Setting Comments

That last item really got my attention. Sounds like I can have my cake and eat it too! Translation: some advanced features with a less aggressive AI. The additional supplies only mattered early for me - after a bit of success, I had plenty of everything. If someone really wants a challenge, forget t...
