Re: New AGEOD Friendly PC ?

Changing the path can help with 'access violations errors' that can terminate the program. It seems windows checks for administration rights when the program is in 'program files'. I install my games in an Ageod folder on the c drive. example "C:\Ageod\ The old engine does not take advantage of...

Re: Duration of one turn ?

It's not the ''Giant'' size that bothers me it's that it seems like a generic icon. The CW2 icons with leaders are different from each other. I firmly believe that empires will be an excellent game...but Ageod is going in a different direction than I hoped they would. Still onboard though! and I'm s...

Re: Duration of one turn ?

'1 year turns', 'giant soldiers', 'no leader traits' ( at least not like Ageod of old)', I'm depressed :(

It'll probably be a good game but not what I was hoping for.... time will tell.

I believe turns are 1 year. I haven't seen it written anywhere but seems so comparing the dates on the development diaries screen shots. .... (I was hoping for seasons...at least 4 turns per year.) :innocent:

Do you start with armies and cities ?

Hi, does Empires start with units and cities or is it more like a 4x game where you need to establish cities and build all of your units?

Will units such as 'flavor brigades' be added to your force the way Ageod did in the past? They appear at various times without a separate build order.

Thanks

I assume you have selected the game option to reduce memory demand and winter maps and such. This is not a monster game, just covers a lot of potential territory. Each scenario is pretty contained.

Hi again,


The Big Map has me concerned. I can play 30 Years War and CW II fine but I've avoided the monsters like TEAW and WON. I've got 1 gig of video ram.

I love Ageod but sometime they run a little slow on my machine; mostly map scrolling.

Thanks for any help! :)

Re: Poll. To be or not to be hexed.

I think it is important that regions or hex sides are considered. Some games only use the hex or region terrain. Other games consider the hex/region side you are crossing; mountains could be the dominate land feature coming into a hex from the west which would cost more movement points or take longe...

Re: How do I 'get ahead' with my economy?

First thing to check is the options screen and see if automatic replacements is on .... turn it off.

War Supplies are tight in this game and the automatic replacement options spends too much. With it off you can prioritize what you need as there is never really enough.
