    Default Eventually, the world is conquered!

    Eventually, i've got all the settlements under my controls.. All i got was an ending message and sense of accomplish.

    Couldn't believe how much time this game has taken from my life, can't blame it for being so good though.. Now i can finally move on to do other things in life without having to come back to the computer every hour, hahaha.

    Anyway, thanks for all the helps in here man (especially telling me about the Americas, i wouldn't have known about it)

    Peace!

    Love the game!!

    Dealing with the Mongols and Trimurids was the latter part of my conquest. Strategically, i attacked France first then send a general via ship to Spain and kind of joining the map from Spain and France towards each other.

    After i have merged Spain and France, i expanded the territory in both directions, clockwise and anti-clockwise around the edges of the map then later on expanding from the edges into the center of the map. This way, i don't have to worry about having two factions sandwiching me from 2 sides.

    By the time i have destroyed Denmark, the Trimurids was already attacking my boarder around that region. If you divide the map(excluding Americas) into 4 equal squares, the Trimurids had the top right corner of the map under their control so they were the last factions i deal with in the map, attacking from the West(from Denmark), Southeast(from Hungary) and South(from Turks) at the same time and they did not have enough armies to protect their regions from 3 sides.

    I was lucky that the Mongols faction was destroyed in the middle part of the game and didn't really have much to deal with them.

    Well done!

    I usually quit when I'm far enough ahead. Did you manage all cities yourself?
    Nope - no sig what so ever.

    Yeah, i ought to.. When managing an empire that big i have to check the faction's announcement at the begining every turn to replace spies, priest and uncheck the auto manage box when a general die..

    If i leave the city to be auto-manage, two main problems will occur.. First, they will keep recruiting units that i will never get to use (eg. balista, catapults, town militia) non-stop which will affect the income due to army upkeep cost in each turn.

    Second, if i manage the city myself, i can always check what is it that the city needs. For example, if squalor is the problem, the auto-manage computer might not build a huge stone wall but instead construct University which doesn't help increasing the citizens' happiness, which would later result in riots.

    So i usually use the "Settlements Tab" to browse through the citys' happiness and see which is having a "blue/red face" to quickly spend my money increasing happiness in those settlements first.
