have to scroll across the map with the arrow keys and that kinda sucks but other than that it's pretty cool so far


hold down the right mouse button and you can drag across the map

i dont have time to try the beta, whats the gameplay like so far? im sure they will slow the resource gathering ability down quite a bit when it hits actual release.


I just started it. it starts with a construction "tutorial" where it tells you to build houses, a fishing hut, lumberjack hut, goat farm, etc. now i'm on my own I'm guessing

looks like this might be the case here. you can't buy anything yet, but it looks like they're setting it up to be able to

bottom right corner is a "store" that you can spend the rubies to buy wood, stone, etc. I'm assuming they'll let you buy these rubies later.


edit: it's DEFINITELY going to have something like that. I'm exploring a new area, and it's going to take an hour, but I could have done "Explore Now" and spent 225 rubies for it.

thats classic "pay to win faster" from ubisoft, TSO style. gameplay will slow waaaaay down after the initial tutorial is finished.

yea, once you're on your own, it slows down. takes 3+ minutes to produce one unit of cotton, then another 3+ minutes to turn that one cotton into one article of clothing. you need wood to build things, and it takes a little under 2 minutes to produce one unit of wood. all of it is like that.

yea, that's what you get with the browser games like this. it's pretty fun though. more in depth than clash of clans

what's up with the vassals giving me less than the pioneers even though they are upgraded and have 15 instead of 8?

do they have access to bread yet? or you may need to build a tavern. it's 2 wheat farms for 1 mill then 1 bakery so 2:1:1, or they could need clothing?

not to bread yet.

I figured out the vassals are actually making me more, it's just this game has a weird way of quantifying things on a per hour/day scale, like money generated, items produced, etc.
