1.0 AUTHOR'S NOTE

******************************************************************************



This is my first FAQ so I hope any readers that has any comments or

suggestions please let me know. You can email me through the email address

written on top. I'm kind of stuck here :(







******************************************************************************

2.0 CONTROLS

******************************************************************************



Control of this game is just almost the same as any recent Strategy games.

I will list only a few command(default).



Attack Move:

Clicking on the Attack button or hit A then click anyway on screen or map will

order your units to move to the area you wish and will attack any enemy

insight. Peasants will only move the the area without attacking any enemy

insight.

Beware, Don't do attack move while your units are fighting because they

will move a few steps before they resume fighting. This is not what you want.



Selecting Unit(s):

all of the same units on screen.

is some exception. If there are military units and peasants in your selected

square area, only military units will be selected (scout included).

use to select two or more groups of units by holding shift while double

clicking on a unit or hitting the group number you want.

For example, F1 is a group of Archer while F2 is a group of Light Cavalry.

After hitting F1, shift button is held down while you hit F2, both Archer

and Light Cavalry is now selected.



Grouping Units:

17 groups can be made and 1 single unit can appear in all 17 groups. Once you

have selected the unit(s) you want, press CTRL+(any number from 1-9 or F1-F8).



Deselect unit(s) in a group:

You can deselect units that you don't want to include in a group by holding

CTRL then click on unwanted unit(s) on screen or their potrait on the lower

right.



Zooming in & out:

Using scroll mouse will be the most convinient method that is by scroll up to

zoom out or scroll down to zoom in. If you don't have a scroll mouse or your

scroll won't work, hit Page Up to zoom out or Page Down to zoon in.







******************************************************************************

3.0 GAME OPTIONS

******************************************************************************



Learn How to Play:

A fast effective way to learn almost everything from this option. Once you

have completed every scenario, all you need is to get use to the commands,

buildings, units, technologies, research, resources and the map. I strongly

suggest new player that knows nothing about Rise of Nations should go through

this toturial first.

9.0 STRATEGIES

******************************************************************************



My strat is goes according to my style so it won't be easy to follow each

step. I've beat the toughest AI with this strat but not always successful.



+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+

STRATEGIES FOR CONQUER THE WORLD MAP:



Some people might time that 21 turns are not enough to conquer the whole world

but I'm positive that it's possible because I've conquered the world map 18

turns that is the 1st turn of Information Age. Tough difficulty not toughest,

will try :)



1. Expand to as many unoccupy land as possible but plan and choose where you

should occupy 1st in order to get the most Supply Center, Rare Resources

and even cards!!!

2. Use your battle cards wisely, never use on battle that you think that is

against only 1 enemy especially on City size 1-4. Not worth it.

3. Try to make overrun attack whenever possible.

4. Conquer as many nation as possible before reaching Industrial Age. It's

harder to take over a high numbered City while you need to gather so many

types of resources.

5. Always target enemy's Capital. This is the key to success.







+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+~+

STRATEGIES FOR BATTLE:



Survival of Fittest

Using Japanese/German against 1 Toughest AI

1. Move 2 peasants from Woodcutter's Camp to build 2 Farms. Train 3 peasants

and research Military technology. Scout explore.

2. First 2 peasants from City to Timber, last build a Barracks near City.

3. Once Barracks done, peasants will automatically move to Woodcutter's Camp.

Train 4 Ashigaru Spearmen then 1 Slinger.

4. Start attacking with 4 Ashigaru Spearmen and 1 slinger.

5. Research Science then Civic. Train 3 peasants.

6. 1 peasant build a new City, the other 2 peasants build a Tower.

7. Once new City done build Woodcutter's Camp. Research Attrition damage once

Tower is done. Research Classical Age.

8. Build Mine once Classical Age research done. And keep on pumping a

considerable amount of peasants to occupy Woodcutter's Camp and Mine.

Upgrade Ashigaru Spearmen to Bashi. Build a University.

9. Build farm, market and research Commerce. Build another university.

10. Train some Bashi, few Slingers, and 1-2 archer. Move 1 peasant to repair

assimilating City.

11. Build Stable, Granary, Ore Refinery and another Tower near new City.

12. Build more farms and keep on training spearman, slinger and horsie +

upgrade whenever possible.

13. Build Siege Factory whenever possible incase enemy successfully build a

tower.



Note:

You must know how to manage your army properly and don't give enemy a chance

to build a tower. If they have army coming out of their Barracks, move all

army to kill them 1st. Garrisoned City is not a threat due to their low

damage. If the first group of army died before they are able to capture a

City, don't move only 1 or few units as reinforcement or to continue their

attacks, make a large group before attacking. After several experiment, I've

concluded that you can only beat 1 toughest AI with this strat in Arena map

size. The key of this strat is capture the Capital 1st then slaughter those

peasants especially those building Barracks or Towers.

#I've master this strat and I'm able to beat toughest AI in 7mins time that

is before I'm able to research Attrition Damage.





******************************************************************************

10.0 HINTS & TIPS

******************************************************************************



There are many points that I've learn from experience and experimenting:-



1. City's attack rate and damage will always be the same no matter how many

peasants or foot units is garrisoned in it.



2. Slingers and Archer are both ranged unit but 2 Slingers is needed in a

Tower or Fort to do 1 Archer's work.



3. Don't pile up resources for no reason. Use all of it to train army,

research, or build buildings if possible.



4. Building an Ore Smelter in an area of City that has no Mine is useless.

It's the same with Granary and Lumber Mill but Oil Refinery's affect all of

your oil resources.



5. Build new City near resources so you can later build resource enhancement

building to benefit you resource gather rate. Resource building must be in

the economic radius circle in order to gain this benefit.



6. Oil Refinery's effect do stack so build a few to maximize your Oil income.

For example, 1 Oil Refinery increase 33% Oil production rate while 2 will

increase 66% and so on.



7. Try to upgrade your military units according to age in order to get the

maximum potential. Try to overcome enemy's with better military. For

example, Medieval units can kill Classical units easier.



8. Do not forget Air Defences once you enemy reach Industrial Age. One Air

Defence is not enough so build as many as possible. Air defences are cheap

and can be constructed fast.



9. Siege Units are extremely useful. They can layer buildings extremle fast

from a far distance. It's not effective to use against enemy units but

there is some exception. eg. Rocket Artillery can destroy tank easily and

can take quite a large chunk of damage.



10. Your siege units splash damage will affect your on units.



11. Try to build City near mountain and trees.



12. Use pause button (P) in solo game whenever you need it or when you want to

search for a strategic location to build City or buildings.



13. Spies and Generals are extremely useful. They can turn the tide of a

battle to your favor if used properly. At least 2 generals and 4 spies

are advisable as support units in battle.



14. Mass Bomber and Air Fighter is one of the easiest way to win a battle or

to destroy a massive amount of buildings and weakening ground units.





to be continue....
