  1. Thanks for the update Brit, and hope the injuries heal soon!
  2. I'm running 1.01 12532, which I think is up to date. I didn't know you could pay to increase your research rate, and I've not investigated the tech tree enough to know about the food enhancements. It was only my first game, so I guess I have a bit still to learn.
  3. I think I've come to the end of my first full game, and it was great fun. I created a fairly large map (I think it was 3000x2600) with 30% land mass. I've now completed approx 215 turns, and I control roughly 90-95% of the map. As a result the enemy has tried to resign a few times now, but I didn't accept and carried on to learn more about the game. My queries are: ~ The AI enemy seem not to to have wanted to expand their territory, thus allowing me to gradually grow my empire to the point where I had over 50% of the map before we'd even bumped into each other once. I've now gained ov
  4. I've saved my single player game twice, as "game1" and "game1backup". I always try to have a second save... just in case. To do it, click on the save game button, then when the window opens write a new game/file name. When you want to resave again after a few turns, or when you're switching off the game, just save again twice, once for each file name. Hope this answers or helps with your query.
  5. Yes, I'd noticed the reduced price, and bought and downloaded EoS last night Then spent the whole night on a fresh game on a largish map with 70% ocean space. Really enjoyed it although I'm struggling to get transports to pick up troops from cities, and so my expansions plans have been delayed a little. I click on the transport and select "pick up unit X" and then unit Y, but it doesn't. I think the problem is that some load okay, and others dont, so I'm not sure what I'm doing right and wrong?? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Aside from that I need to learn more about the te
  6. Finally Rewind 20-25 years, and I used to play Empire for hours, weeks, and months on end, mostly against a friend (as the AI was not so good in those days). I used to love creating large maps, with a lot of ocean space, as for some tactical reason I loved the naval side of the exploration, as well as creating fleets of units for both offensive and defensive duties. The graphics and AI may have been poor by today’s standards, but the gameplay was awesome… and good tactical gameplay overrides any quality of graphics in my opinion. Oh how I wanted a more up to date version of Empire, and
