Topic: Idle Conquest / Try conquest the world w/o using DK or resetting.

Just a little update…

897 Markets (with 4 upgrades).
Country income is very low, I had expected 70 million/sec.

Topic: General Gaming / Caravaneer 2 official thread

Well, Caravaneer 2 was rather dull.. at least I finished it so.. it was just a giant Excel Table with a tiny bit of a game.
The most negative point I experienced was the map filled with useless cities. You know, water+forage+food, self feeding cities which produce nothing and trade nothing.
This game would do a lot better with fewer cities, but with interesting details.

Anyway, nobody seems to care about spending time with it so I’m off.

Topic: Idle Conquest / country income doesn't match

The actual money income matches the statistics screen. Where it says “gold income per sec” and “country income”.. that’s what you really get (tested with a stopwatch over a period of 1 hour)

I located the problem to the numbers on the map. Each time the bar fills takes 8-9 seconds, and when it fills, you notice a little jump in the money counter. But the money added is not the value that’s written on the countries!
Misty Key for example reads 187mil but it gives you only 124 mil at the fill of one bar, which is 8/12 of the noted value.

Credits go to Hobovilla for this find:

“i did a DK reset and there seems do be a discrepancy between the gold from countries per sec listing and the actual gold the country says it gives per cycle. Astrila says it gives me $153,932 per cycle, which takes approx. 8 seconds, which adds up to $19,241.50 per sec. When i have that as the only country ive conquered the gold per second from countries value lists $12,827.67, which is one twelvth the full value of a cycle instead of one eighth.”

Topic: Idle Conquest / country income doesn't match

Hey guys, i think i found a little bug

The income from a conquered country is only 1/12 of the number it says on the map.. but the bars on the map fill every 8 seconds..

So, Misty Keys description reads: “Gold gains: 187 mil”.
It’s bar fills up every 8 seconds. That would be 23mil/sec. However, the gold increase per second (on the stats screen) says it only gives 1/12 of the actual value: 15 mil/sec.
The gold income from conquered countries should be a lot higher. Thx!

…just ignore this guy.

Misty Keys in 1 hour and a half!

I can hardly await it. After that, I’ll see very clearly how long the rest will take.
There won’t be any major surprises coming up in the future, with all countries captured and most buildings at 800 or 900 already (except cathedral+castles)
Another update coming up tomorrow when all things are settled, and it’s rolling slowly but surely toward victory! hehe

Hey cchaon, starting 20 days behind of schedule doesn’t matter at all…
So nothing is lost.. you won’t finish before me, but I might not fully conquer the world in less total days. Welcome back!! :)

Everyone else is invited to join this challenge, too and who can do it in least amount of days.

Update: I’m on day 24 and got 900 barracks now. Misty Keys ahead in 4-5 days.

Nope, they only have standard guys in military armor and M16.
The best place to intercept them is when they’re moving away from Qubba or Ausz.
I got 384 Million from a 69-man caravan – these guys are the reason why towns never have enough money. xD
How much money a caravan has depends on how long since it’s been spawned. Then they for example pick up petrol, travel to another town to sell, pick up fuel in the process and rinse and repeat. And when you want to trade with your Player, this message: “Town only has 5.000$ to barter” shows up and you know, you’ve been too late.

That Ozbet Government is behaving funny! They downgrade my reputation with them… for doing nothing.
First my rep was at +1.. did the Quest to defeat some robbers.. then it was -38.. went to Qubba to buy fuel.. then it’s at -46.
No fights, nothing at all.

I got the coordinates of Qubba from the Captain in Northway, and if I remember correctly, Kevin the dude with the house near Serino gave me the coordinates to Northway. Perhaps the coordinates are also on the map of Janubi.
Tribal Region → Alkubra Region → Janubi Region → Qubba Region → Federation Region

The battery charger (needed for digital scopes later on) can charge 4 batteries per day.. However, I think there’s a bug??? Even when I bought 10 chargers and 200 batteries, but still only 4 batts get charged per day. That’s quite unfortunate because of the fortune I spent on the digital scopes :( Now my party is restricted to one battle per week at most, or else their scopes power down, daaaaaamn !!!

I’m not going to post much since next update (Misty Key) will be really slow.. approximately on January, the 11th.
Doing my best to get the last achievement multipliers of 800+900 buildings.

I wish you a Happy new year!!

On the 18th day of this challenge…

Teluht Isles have been conquered, Fufu !

I built 850 Farms, 800 Markets, 710 Goldmines and 700 Cathedrals for the economy.
For military purposes, I also built 810 Barrackses, 760 Arenas and 710 Castles.

And if I ever beat this challenge, those 500 Altars have churned out 7,5 Million DKs already, waiting.. and growing further.
So it’s now up to conquering Misty Key and the infamous Grey Isles, stay tuned for further updates !

cchaon might have departed from us, but the challenge must go on! Sorry, bro.

Don’t make the same mistake as I did.. relying too much on trading.
Later on AI Caravans will suck all the money out of towns.
There comes a point when you WILL need the combat power to take on a caravan with 35 or even 69 men.

These automated Caravans will run between two towns back and forth until these are completely dry of cash!
In my current game I’m sitting on 3500 Cement (which cost a fortune at 2600$ each) but the 20+ surrounding towns can’t pay.

I once took out a 50men caravan (lost my 2 best mercs) and … it had 41 million $ loot in cash.
So, once you reach Qubba I recommend hiring 20+ mercenaries or you will go bankrupt because towns are unable to trade goods. (they gave all their money to AI caravans)

Good hunting!

It’s the final countdown… drums 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4…

only 3 more countries to go… (well, actually not yet.. conquering Gluuestein might take until tomorrow lol)

Only a short update today and wanted to say, Good work NIN_Abuser :)

Hi, together with you we’re already three guys attempting this challenge, cool.
And “poisonthewall” is also doing this challenge since about a month, but he hasn’t posted here yet.

I can give you a tip about economy: Upgrade the later buildings first, starting with cathedral, then goldmine, and farm last.
You have a different cost growth than in AdCap: Every building type has the same 1,025 increase for every building.

Here’s an example: At about 500 cathedrals and 700 farms, the very next building for each of them costs like 30 bil. Their cost increases alongside, but cathedrals give far more money. Once their cost matches each other, farms suck.
(this is more or less by how i remember it.)
So, anyway i do have 700 goldmines, but only 800 farms and 700 markets.
The goldmines do 7,8mil alone by themselves, saved up the cash and upgraded farms last.

And now, for something completely different: Today I made an Excel Table to keep track of my progress:
Army Power +0,6mil per day at the current rate, it would take 561 days to conquer the world FuFu :)

Those 561 days of course only matter, if I won’t construct any buildings in the meantime.
But don’t despair yet!
In just a matter of 24 hours, I’ll be able to conquer Tuyelor!
And this will boost my income by another +4mil/sec, which would enable me to reach 700 Castles in less than 30 hours from now on…
With a little luck, it doesn’t take very long and we’ll see many more upgrades so stay tuned.

… and if not, I should just take holidays and come back in 561 days :) lol

Then you create a better idle game?

On the 5th day of this challenge, I’m proud to present…


Plyket has been conquered…


…boosting income to 8.7m from economy plus 2.7m from countries…


…but still far away from 600 Cathedrals. At least my army power of 890k speaks for itself.

I’ll keep up my strategy: Army power leads to conquest, captured countries lead to income, and money leads to more barracks/arenas/castles.
I like using a bypass on the economical buildings hehe :)

Beeing 43 hours into the challenge and shortly before 2nd day, I’m already conquering Ehl.
I went straight for army to get it rolling, when I saw that conquests without any DKs might take a long, looong, very long time.
Economy was a bit tough to upgrade, since a lot of military buildings had to be constructed.
