Have fun upgrading resources by yourself.

I rather just profit off of the high leveled resources~

Well, the thing is that this is my 2nd colony. I already have Crystal/Marble. The wine island closest to me is completely filled. The sulfur island isn't full, but probably has low level mines and stuff. :< And the 2nd closest wine is empty. wat =___=

Would it be dumb to have two cities on the same island?

If the resources are high, then it's good

If they're low, then it's pretty dumb
Unless you like donating

So, maybe I should expand to an island with 15 people? :<

Gonna go sulfur and just raid and get owned by high levels.

I prefer expanding into islands that have already high resources, something around lv16 luxury and wood. I don't mind if they're not beside my other towns, I can deal with up to 3-4 hour transport time.

Moreover, I prefer having my towns scattered so that when I make enemies, they can't find/attack all of my colonies and attack. :3 It also give me more trading options and more *cough* pillaging targets.

You can use this tool to search for islands: Ikariam-World - Search Player

All the islands around 9x:7x have their resource levels pretty much at the soft cap. If you are near there and have only one colony, go island hopping and ditch the other city.

Yeah the 9x:6x-7x area is kinda well developed.

Mainly due to GRH and FBird and Fuzzy (lol only one in Illuminati/Pride in the area)

Oh my sulfur island isnt at soft cap, but no one needs more so we determined it was a waste.

Max workers without helping hands is 271.
Highest is 181, then 141, then 121, then 50... and the smart people (Me and the FBird guy) are at 40. So why waste wood to increase that? Thats 100k wood that can be put to breaking the soft cap.

Breaking the soft cap sucks. My wine island is at level 17 right now, and level 18 costs 1.6 million wood. That's absolutely absurd considering the island doesn't even have a wonder boost.
