Default [Guide] Creating a Resource Colony

Well, by now most people already know this, but for the newer players.

Ikariam Starting Colony Guide
Helps you maximize your resources at the beginning of a colony
When you first build your colony, try to do it in the morning. Why do I say this? No it's not defensive, its more of you want more time with your newer colony before you have to sleep. So lets start.

Deciding what to send

If I recall, level 0 warehouse stores 720 wood/240 luxury.
Send over 720 wood (in addition to the 1250 needed for colony) and 240 marble (if available)

First few hours
  1. First dump EVERY SINGLE WORKER into your luxury.
  2. Create a Warehouse (1)
  3. Upgrade Town Hall (2)
  4. Dump the new people into your Luxury
  5. Ship out your town luxury to your main town and every time you hit the "red" zone
  6. Upgrade Town Hall (3)
  7. Dump the new people into your Luxury
  8. Create a port (1)
  9. Upgrade Warehouse (2)
  10. Upgrade Town Hall (4)
Few hours before ending for the night
  1. Upgrade Warehouse (3)
  2. Upgrade Warehouse (4)
  3. Make sure you have enough for Gov. Residence (4,816 wood and 460 marble with all 3 reductions, you will need level 5 warehouses if you don't have any of these)
  4. Create a Gov. Residence (1)
The Next Day
  1. Ship out extra goods to another island
  2. Create a Museum and stick a Treaty in it (1)
  3. Ship wine to the colony if you have it
  4. Upgrade Town Hall (5)
  5. Upgrade Tavern (2)

That should get you going for maximizing the few 24 hours or so.
Remember: You don't need wine in a Tavern for it to give a bonus. And the 192 base bonus (+25 from research maybe) will only help until Level 4 Town

**Hopefully you have a source of marble (probably another island, raiding, or make this on Marble) otherwise you will have to skip steps.


Also, if you have a tip like step changes or adding another building in somewhere, please post

Since this guide is mostly directed for the newer players, some of these might not work out as well, as they won't have the necessary researches.

-Museum is a late-ish research... you probably don't get it before you get a third town. So, it'll most probably not be available to build.

-This "4,816 wood and 460 marble" is only with spirit level...which they really won't have, but more importantly, you only need 648 for lvl 1 governor's residence. That there that you put is only for lvl 2.

Other than that, it all seems fine o.O

I can't really comment on the order of steps though, since I never really though about it o_o I just work along as I go

PS. Try this wiki in the future o-o http://ikariam.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

when making it, like before you make it actually, you can just send the max of everything, and that'll be enough till you upgrade the warehouse.

So yea, you're fine.
