Buidling a new city

Post by baggins on Sat Jan 01, 2011 10:47 pm

I am excited by the prospect of building a completely new city in my colonies and have selected a site. Does anyone have experience of doing this? I am interested how many recruits were allocated to the city (if any?) and what kind of problems had to be overcome to make it work.

yup, need 10,000 recruits, 400,000, takes 2 years. I built 2 recently in my colonies...... After that you need to ship more recruits once established to build other stuff like army units as there will not be enough recruits there.

Consider adding port and army base magazine etc after wards...just for starters, then a fort and gunners..

have fun

its a very big commitment! i wonder if its worth it and how many years it would take to make my money back.

anyone have actual examples of success where they definately think its worth doing? I can St Petersburg as an obvious example to get a all-round sea port but its difficult to think of others where you would get a better return than simply investing 400,000 in trade.

in the americas for instance or new world africa perhaps

St Petersburg will offer returns it depends where you build and what resorses are there.

Most players have built colonies just t get a base there not for profit early in a game its a lot to commit too
