Explore

From Earth Empires Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Exploring is one of the main options for using turn(s) in Earth Empires. In essence, your country spends turns to gain land, by sending out explorers to discover and occupy new lands.

Exploring works on a sliding scale, with the amount of land explored per turn reducing as your total land increases. However, the amount of land explored per turn does not change if multiple turns are used for exploring in a single instance, regardless of what thresholds may be passed. Therefore, it is generally most beneficial to explore at the start of a new reset, as well as exploring in large batches in order to capitalize on higher exploration rates.

Explore Rates

Your explore rate is always an integer, and is used as such when exploring is started.

Threshold represents the maximum amount of total land you can have before your exploration rate drops to the next level.

Batch Exploring

When you explore, you can designate a certain number of turns to explore with. Your acres-per-turn explore rate is not recalculated between each explored turn. Batch Exploring means using a full batch of turns (86, 120, 126, or 160 turns depending on your server) to explore with all at once. So for example, if your explore rate was 22 acres per turn, you would find roughly 22 acres * FullTurns. You will not grow as fast exploring in smaller bits and pieces.

Considerations

Depending on your choice of government or strategy, overhead costs such as military upkeep or food should be watched closely. If you are already consuming lots of resources per turn, be sure to take into account that as your military grows, costs will increase significantly. As more people come to your country, food will be consumed faster.
