    Mines:
    Metal Mine lvl8 (80%)
    Crystal Mine lvl7 (100%)
    Deuteriam Synthesizer lvl5 (100%)
    Solar Plant LVL9
    Robotics Factory LVL2

    Research:
    Research Lab LVL1
    Energy Technology LVL1
    Metal Storage Compartment (I was going to run my limit on Metal in the morning, so I figure I may as well put it to decent use instead of waste it.)

    Shipyard:
    Shipyard LVL1


    DAY FOUR:

    Mines:
    Metal Mine lvl9 (100%)
    Crystal Mine lvl7 (100%)
    Deuteriam Synthesizer lvl5 (100%)
    Solar Plant LVL10
    Robotics Factory LVL2
    Metal Storage Compartment

    Research:
    Research Lab LVL1
    Energy Technology LVL2

    Shipyard:
    Shipyard LVL1


    It'll take me a while to get that Fusion Reactor... But I'm only one Energy LVL away from getting one. Then I have to pay for it, of course, which will absolutely suck.

    Day Three:

    Mines:
    Metal Mine Lvl 8
    Crystal Mine Lvl 8
    Deuterium Synthesizer Lvl 6
    Solar Plant Lvl 10
    1 Solar Satellite (35 power)

    I'm having serious energy problems; solar satellites aren't good enough, fusion reactors are 2 very expensive techs away, and I can't justify spending 4,200 metal (and 1,700 crystal) on the next lvl of solar plant.

    Research:
    Research Lab Lvl 1
    Lvl 1 Energy Technology
    Lvl 1 Combustion Drive

    Fleet:
    Shipyard Lvl 2
    1 Solar Satellite

    Miscellaneous:
    Robotics Factory Lvl 2

    Resources
    Metal: 3,256
    Crystal: 1,872
    Deuterium: 250
    Energy (at full mine capacity): -2

    Re: Empire Update Thread

    You're probably having my problem --running low on Crystals.

    And running low on energy. I swear, I can get all the matel I need, I just need Crystals!!! That and Deuteriam is always low.


    Bleh, it's reaching that point in the game where I have to sit around somemore and build up my Crystals and Deuteriam.

    Actually, not really. Deuterium is low, energy is low, metal is not as high as I'd like, but crystals are pretty much OK.

    Wow...Seriously, save up for some solar plant upgrades. Maybe a couple. A mine running a 20% is just not going to cut it.

    Probably a hell of a lot.


    Really? Crystal is the reason my fledgling empire hasn't sprouted up yet. My Deuteriam isn't all that bad, but my Crystals are horrible!

    No, you're not. Trust me on this one. You need a better solar plant.

    You really don't want to know. You do? Alright:
    3,200 Crystal, 1,600 Deuterium.

    Total cost for lvls 1,2, and 3:
    5,400 Crystal, 2,800 Deuterium. Have fun with that

    Techs cost an ungodly amount of Deuterium. You need techs for ships. Ergo...

    Nah... I just felt like spending. =P


    Honestly, I grow so bored watching my metal jump up and up while my Crystal and Deuteriam just lag behind.

    Re: Empire Update Thread

    Build up a few levels of metal, then a couple of crystal, then solar power, then deut.

    Rinse repeat...throw in a couple extra rounds of solar panel if necessary.

    It IS slow in the beginning, but it gets SO much easier after about a week or so guys.

    Anyway, here's my latest:

    Home World:


    Mines:
    Metal Mine (level 11)
    Crystal Mine (level 11)
    Deuterium Synthesizer (level 9)
    Solar Plant (level 13)
    Fusion Reactor (level 3)

    Buildings:

    Robotics Factory (level 5)
    Shipyard (level 5)
    Research Lab (level 6)

    Defense:

    Rocket Launcher: 6
    Lt. Laser: 16
    Heavy Laser: 4
    ___________________________

    Colony:

    Mines:
    Metal Mine (level 7)
    Crystal Mine (level 6)
    Deuterium Synthesizer (level 5)
    Solar Plant (level 8)
    Fusion Reactor (level 1)

    Buildings:

    Robotics Factory (level 2)
    Shipyard (level 2)
    Research Lab (level 2)

    Defense:

    none yet
    __________________________________

    Research:


    Computer Technology (level 3)
    Armour Technology (level 2)
    Energy Technology (level 3)
    Combustion Drive (level 6)
    Impulse Drive (level 3)
    Laser Technology (level 6)
    _____________________________________

    As of the time of this post, Research Bldg on Homeworld and Combustion Drive are being developed INTO level 6 which will allow me then to create Large Cargo Ships (slower than small cargo, but holds 25,000 instead of 5,000).

    Fleet:

    Espionage Probes: 4
    Sm. Cargo: 16
    Lt. Fighters: 2

    As you can see, you do not need to FIGHT in order to get minerals. Just today, I've accumulated (and admittedly, nearly used up all of) 50K metal, 50K crystal, 35k-40k deut.

    TIP: Build that fleet of sm. cargo's ASAP.

    lol... Will do.

    But I'm greedy and I want my Fusion Reactor.

    Like I said.. I want to hit space strong. But right now it looks like I need to hit space while I'm weak and build up. Damn.

    You know, we could more easily chart progress if we used ODNdium and each started /Ogame pages off our our user page. I think I will make one of of my user page later today.

    DAY FOUR:

    Mines:
    Metal Mine lvl9 (100%)
    Crystal Mine lvl7 (100%)
    Deuteriam Synthesizer lvl5 (100%)
    Solar Plant LVL10
    Robotics Factory LVL2
    Shipyard LVL3
    Metal Storage Compartment

    Research:
    Research Lab LVL1
    Energy Technology LVL2
    Combustion Technology LVL1

    Shipyard:
    [nothing yet]

    Change in plans. I think I'll be entering space either tommarrow or Wednsday. But it will be soon. (Even though it'll only be light cargo ships and light fighters.)

    Re: Empire Update Thread

    GP, that's acceptable to start out with. With just a couple fighters and a coupe cargos, you can dramatically increase your resource revenue. You'll be creating larger fleets in no time.

    Re: Empire Update Thread

    Ok, I set up my Ogame page. Here it is:
    http://www.onlinedebate.net/wiki/ind...erending/Ogame

    The first thing you want to do is create such a page, as I have. To do this, click on your user name at the top right of any ODNdium page when you are logged in. If you don't have a user page, it will take you to an edit page. If you want to pause to make the page, you can. Either way, save the page (if it doesn't work blank...add a minimal of text if you don't want to write a description about yourself...I haven't tested saving blank pages). After that, add /Ogame to the end of the url. Then click on the edit tab at the top.

    You'll notice that I decided to use tables to list everything, though given that (at least at my stage) mines are the only thing that have extra information associated with them, you really only need to use a table for that...and if you just want to list the level, that works too. Listing things in MediaWiki (the software behind ODNdium) merely involves putting a * in front of content to make bullets. Hence:
    Code:
    *Metal Mine - Level 9
    *Crystal Mine - Level 8
    *Deuterium Synthesizer - Level 7
    yields (in approximation):
    • Metal Mine - Level 9
    • Crystal Mine - Level 8
    • Deuterium Synthesizer - Level 7
    As well, you can use tables, which are a bit more complex. The beginning of a table in Media Wiki is marked by: {| The end is marked by: |} Headers are marked by exclamation points (!) whereas normal entries are marked by vertical bars (|). Entries are separated by doubles of these symbols. Rows are separated by: |- As well, you will probably want to make the cells visible by adding border="1" right after the beginning tag. This all comes together so that this:
    Code:
    {| border="1"
    ! Mine !! Level !! Percent of capacity !! Output per hour !! Cost per hour
    |-
    | Metal Mine || 9 || 100% || 639 metal || 212 energy
    |-
    | Crystal Mine || 8 ||100% || 342 cystal || 171 energy
    |-
    | Deuterium Synthesizer || 7 || 100% || 169 deuterium || 272 energy
    |-
    | Solar Plant || 11 || 100% || 627 energy || -
    |-
    | Fusion Reactor || 1 || 100% || 55 energy || 11 deuterium
    |}
    Yields:
    Mine Level Percent of capacity Output per hour Cost per hour
    Metal Mine 9 100% 639 metal 212 energy
    Crystal Mine 8 100% 342 cystal 171 energy
    Deuterium Synthesizer 7 100% 169 deuterium 272 energy
    Solar Plant 11 100% 627 energy -
    Fusion Reactor 1 100% 55 energy 11 deuterium

    And:
    Code:
    {| border="1"
    ! Building !! Level
    |-
    | Robotics Factory || 2
    |-
    | Shipyard || 1
    |-
    | Research Laboratory || 3
    |}
    Yields:
    Building Level
    Robotics Factory 2
    Shipyard 1
    Research Laboratory 3

    As you can see, the number of columns is determined by how many entries separated by "!!" are in the heading and are subsequently separated by "||" in the body of the table. You want those numbers to be the same, otherwise you get wierd-looking tables.

    Of course, you will want to separate your information by headings, which use the following code:
    Code:
    == Level 2 Heading ==
    === Level 3 Heading ===
    ==== Level 4 Heading ====
    A level 2 heading will be the largest of the three and have a horizontal line under it. A level 3 heading is smaller, but still large and bolded. A level 4 heading looks similar to a level 3 heading, but is smaller, though still larger than normal text.

    I realize that this explanation may be a bit hard to follow in parts. I'm going to work on improving the wording for the About page.
