Hi Everyone!

Today had a bit time for one booming game (during working, just dont tell to my boss :smile: )
Here it is, 158 pop +5x-6x % in 2 TC with 25 pop (theoretically 161 is the maximum)
It still can be optimised, now took care better for deer hunting, but had a bit much wood even with late woodcutters, guess the optimal is if only had all food, after that as much gold as possible + 825 wood.
And let some food in berries. So I think it is possible with 24 pop castle as well (with this 4TC setup), so 164.
Great boom andrew :-)

Funny you bunch of rookas dare to make fun of a guy who's achieved so much more than you in this game (even being a complete scumbag at times)
He'd rape the shit outta all of you in less than 15min, no need for wheelbarrow pieces of crap

So when does it end? Comet's rep seems better than Andrew's because of a way waster imp time, but do you have to keep advancing through the ages asap once you have the resources and then it ends at imp?

LOL, I know what I was doing. For the imp time I thought it was when it ended, but now I get the villager count is always at the 30m mark and the imp time is there for info. I read the other rules thread at least three times yesterday, too.

Nice challenge. I'm quite new to game, only did 20-25 NPL games yet and fail a bit with booming.

This one was my 3rd try - 154 vill. Doesn't seem possible to sustain 4tc with 23 vill up, probably stronger to go 3 tc into 4th bit later, but seems to much effort to balance eco for it.

On a side note; How do I get my hotkeys working in Voobly, changing them ingame in Voobly doesn't save them, changing them in singleplayer when starting the game itself isn't used in Voobly either.

Edit: question 2; how do i get my attachment to show as the game like all the other posts in this thread?

the beginning is allways the hardest part. If it's fun you will learn with ease :wink:

host a voobly room. check "start in single player mode" and create an account in the options menu. Set your hotkeys there. Finished :wink:

click "add file" before uploading.

Yeah, the problem is now is only getting the wood+stone for 3 tc, which is fairly easy. And sustaining them afterwards, for which using faster gathered/cheaper resources without much investment are better + the amount of time you have to actually use this, instead of 'easy', 'low time investment' farm building and getting villagers from your food income.

I think it would be good to include a gold challenge
