Something to do while playing soma

Postby ghostlord » Sun Jul 29, 2012 4:31 pm

Any of you guys remember Settlers 2? Personally I loved it. And now there's Settlers Online! It's a browser game based on the Settlers 2 idea, however it is based on running continuously so it's not very fast. This means it'll combine great with playing Soma, just keep your browser behind your Soma screen!

I started a few days ago and I'm almost one third ish from freeing my island. When I've done this I can start adventures alone or with my friends (hopefully some of you guys).

Check it out, here: http://www.thesettlersonline.com/en/homepage

Also some screenshots guys!

Starting to get into this game properly yesterday. The tutorial drags on but once your lvl 17 when you can trade with others, the game picks up.

I pretty much deleted all of my buildings and rebuilt everything for a few reasons.

1)Maxed out buildings
2)Location bad for chaining productions
3)Productivity time was not efficient enough (above 1min walk = No)

There are a few other reasons but cant remember right now. But right now i have a great set up but hit building limit a few times

Spent today trading getting my buildings higher levels but again you can't be stupid about it you need to upgrade your buildings in a certain order depending on the chain of production you are focusing on the bottom then working up.

E.g.
My current Pinewood production:
Cutter - Coking Plant - Sawmill - Bowmaker

1.30m 3.00m 9.00m 12.00 m
14 18 2 16
---------------------
3m
24 18
6m
48 36
9m
72 54 2
12m
96 72 0 16
----------------------
96| 72 2 16 =90
6 Extra Pinewood

Now from that i can tell i can build another Coking plant (makes coal) or a sawmill or level the building up.

A lot of micromanagement but i've kinda liked it as its going well got me right now. Just waiting on taking another area to start an iron sword chain or a stable, see what comes first =]

My roads turned to stone at lvl 20!

Also I'll rearrange when i've freed my island. :D Nearly got the top sector with the first mini boss.

Iron before horses by the way. Horse stables are very expensive. :(

Finally i got those roads too :P i was fed up of the dirt path. I'd rearrange the buildings that cost pine wood planks and stone asap. This is mainly because to advance further you need to upgrade their levels, i have a few buildings already level 3 and i'm producing 96 pinewood but using 98 so i have to upgrade again. Point is, when you upgrade your buildings you don't want to tear them down later.

Just took him out on mine but realised i need level 22 to reveal the coal mines >.< urrgh more coking plants.

The reason i mentioned horses is because they are much cheaper to run. They require 4 farms and 2 wells, simple to set up but the iron smelter alone needs 2 cooking plants meaning it needs 3 forester and 2 cutters to keep up. And with the copper and tool chains going it just adds to even more coal usage.

I wouldn't advice building a iron chain until you are level 22 and have coal mines set up. It is a good idea though to stock up on iron from the mines for a while so you don't need 4 mines you can keep 2 active with a stockpile on the side.

I'll list what iron and sword need just to get an idea on what costs more.

Iron swords:
4 x Iron mine
5 x Coking plant or 2.5 x Coal mine
2 x Smelter
1 x Iron weaponsmith

Horses:
4 x Farm
2 x Well
1 x Stable

Iron swords cost significantly more not just in the material usage but also the amount of buildings.

At this point everything is tight, no room for extra materials, building limit capped. Usually need 150-200 army size to win a battle now. Side note, i had 90 recruits and 110 bowman to take that mini boss and had around a loss of 80 recruits. Oh population is also another problem. to keep production up it takes settlers and more settlers = more building licences and there are none of those left. As it stands i'll leave horses and iron bars to be made and stock up until i need them for the top middle area (first medium size camps) the small camps ill be using recruits and bowmans as they are very cheap in comparison.

Attacked the first boss with 195 units (90 archers 20 iron swordsman and rest recruits) came back with like 50 recruits lost I guess. Gave me loads of XP and gold xD

Also, soon we will get a move structure feature. XD
