There are bunch of diaries of all sorts all over internet, so why woudnt we have Traian Diary Subforum so players could write what they are building, foughting and so on... many players are discret about their game but lots of us are interested in multiple versions of the game so instead spaming our achievments all over Trav Kingdom Forum, make special subforum for dairies.
But earth is not a globe.
If you are member of KIngdom or Secret Society, you can start or join card games in your group.
Gambling would be included in silver!
Also there could be arranged duels among Kingdoms or Kings.
I will tell you story of my real life country, Croatia. It is in Europe and it is older then 1000 years. We have a shield on our flag with 25 field which represents chess field. Chess game.
Legend of our country is that our Croatian King lead huge army against other nations and to not fight with armies, Kings of nations decided to play a game of chess. He who wins, gets are that is fought for.
Story says our King was very smart and he won chess game against other King and we got the land we live today, Croatia.
I always remember that story when I play Travian Card game.
Also, it would be nice feature to trade card games among players. I give you 1 NPC card you give me 1 crop Card.
You got siege on your a...?
No problem, activate "anti-siege"mode in Main Building.
Select Main Building, click Activate "Panic Mode". There is timer limit like for Tresury, of 12 hours to actiavate.
Anti-Siege mode lasts until you deactivate it and needs 12 hours of downcool to stop.
What it does:
While in anti sege mode you can not:
-All production is halted, production of wood iron and clay and crops becomes 0 resource per hour. You do not produce anything while in anti siege mode
-Your troops waste double crop per hour(legioner 1, teutonic rider 6 crop per hour for example)
-Your troops get 100% defence (bonus does not work on troops from other players but works for troops from all your villages/cities)
-All trade is halted including outbound and inboud, traders do not travel while in anti siege mode
You still can:
Rally point is place or structure where warlord gathers his troops. The bigger troops are, the bigger place of gathering is needed. SO i suggest:
Rally point from lvl1 to lvl5 you can send max number or troops per wave 500 units
Rally point lvl 6 to lvl 10 you can send wave of 3000 units
Rally point from lvl 10 to 15 you can send one wave of maximum 25 000 units
Rally point 16 to 19 you can send up to 100 000 troops in one wave
Rally point 20 no limit for sending
Plus there would be restriction for number of waves:
Rally 1lvl - 10 waves
Rally point lvl 5 - 100 waves
Rally point lvl 10 500 waves
Rally point lvl 20 999 waves
It would be realistic. Imagine 50 000 crop consumtion troops in lvl 1 to lvl 10 rally point in real life. Would get crampy a lot.
Also, you can get defense from friends as high your rally point is, you cant have 1000 troops in rally lvl 1, you have to have at least 3.
Would complicate a game a lot though.
No need. There is already one intermideler (payment service provider) who takes a cut from players and game owners money and by purcasing or better yet to say "converting" money gives you less.
Great way to cheat. Experienced know why and how. I was tired of multiaccounts before but now it is even easier to set your twink account to deffend you early game. Kingdoms is more pop simulation game then war game now.
With menhir feaute you can spawn 2 villages at your main account capital and from resource packs make bundle of deffensive units fast while people who play honest, have to catch animals or just play defensive.
So in first 3 days player who cheats can now make 201 population village with 200 defensive units from twink account while he himself makes only farm raiding units to gather resource and gold and silver he has he does not use for cages nor does he have to build crannies in start!! This is problem for decade now. Still no changes.
So feauture of being king for rookie player is not an option on Travian KIngdom. If you do not have 3,4 players who blindly supports you as King.... zzz
There are games on internet like SAMP that are playable RPG world without reset.
Since day one I started to play Travian I wished that there is a neverending world where all my villages and troops will not go to "Oblivion" and I could anytime come and play my favorite game with my little soldiers, buildings and so on.
Please stop taking my beloved toys to oblivion and let me play and neverending world which lasts for decades.
I remember all my old accounts and I wish I could just for 5 minutes play with my old toys that I miss so much! :((((
Once I had 5 c9s and 3 c15 croppers which I fed all my friends armies and we eventually won the server and now I dont have my villages :(((
Do you remember your first rat ever?
I would include 2 more things to the gameplay:
Gauls have fastest traders with 750 carry capacity. Beat that! I will never forget one female player 10 years ago on Travian version 3. She played gaul without army and farming but managed to be first population player just by TRADE and Gold. Whole world round you have chance to buy resource 1:2. Without any troop loss. Do the math.
2. Practicum Batelisticus
90 percent of farmers avoid gaul villages because of may be trap or may be lot of cranny so no point of wasting time to attack gaul. Every time I registred with Gaul tribe, I had 70 percent less incoming farm attacks from local farmers. That includes scouting, not just farming! So it is big advantage to play as Gaul.
3. TTs are best inactive farmers. Period.
OK, point 1 and 3 are for professional players, point 2 is for begginers but still... picking Gaul tribe makes your wife happier.
1 random field spawning for each player on server once a day.
Every 24hours you have possibility to send your Hero to Magic Hideout. It spawns all around the map, it can be 1 minute away from your capital or 23:59h of Hero walk. When Hero activates Magic Hideout, player gets reward like silver coins, gold coins. It basicly uses adventure game phisics but its not Adventure, its field on map. To find it, you must browse map by yourself to find it by hovering mouse over it.
No. Game needs inactives. You can always register and leave your village as farm to other players. Great way to repair your karma.
Hellhound is completely right. But only in case of 24/7 active account.
Other then ingame mathematics, you have to consider social component. People mostly take Gauls because most of players do not like to attack other players. Only 15 percent of humans are teutons (completely agrresive, practical, gamblers) while gaul players (most of players) are defensive, semi active players that do not like to raid or to get raided. They do not like to gamble. RL yo
When I first time played Kingdoms, I had no idea that i get only 200 extra CP for City and 500 extra CP for Capital.
I will qoute your script:
"Upgrading to city brings you this advantages"
So that means CITY. You havent mentioned CAPITAL.
You should add "500 for CAPITAL CITY, 200 for CITY"
It does say 200 CP in non capital village:

But that is just not enough.
Mercanary camps would be nice, similiar to robber hideouts. Would spawn randomly and you could buy troops there.
For the leveling, all foreign troops would be lvl 0 in first third of the game, lvl 10 second third of the game and lvl20 ofcourse after second third of the game up till the end of the world. Same time script as hero items.
Plus you would have disband option for foreign troops, same as for animals, to remove clutter
Aditional idea: foreign troops would be bought with silver, not with resource but would have daily cap limit like scrools and buckets, so golders wouldnt have so much advantage over nongolders
And most extreme idea would be slave market where you could trade slave troops same as hero items. Similiar to Egyptan troops with low att deff points but cheap build
I play roman. I send hero on adventure.
He comes back with "reward" of 50 paladins, which are Teuton army.
But I control them.
Why not, lot of fun. When i get troops in adventure (my own) i get little stroke and i am sad because i got barracks and stables to do them.
Would be ncie to send couple of teuton scout from roman account just 4fun!!
And there goes racism in full strength.
Lack of knowledge of own history is at least, shamefull.
There was no black King Dukes in real life?
There was no asian King Dukes in real life?
There where no asian black governors?
There where no black asian HEROS of that same Kings Dukes Governors!!!????
Or I have to give you lessons of homo sapiens history? Your own heritage?
I have scouts lvl20 improved. have 12.5 attack points. Not much but enough for fakes!!!
Why cant I send my scouts in normal or raid or siege attack without merging them with other troops?
Same goes for villager and probably senator also?
Watafak? I want to attack with everything I got, why you banned me this?
Was not on Trav4 like that and you have not mentioned that beofore i invested my euros.
I cant place my own villages on farm list. Why?
My capital does not have market, has troops only. I'm kinda in problems now, didnt know that.
