Welcome

In the Golden Age of Civilizations, achieving success requires a balance between economic expansion, military strength, and technological development. Once technological progress has brought you into the space age, you may launch a spacecraft and the first civilization whose launch it wins. Because of the game is time-based, the game will end after two weeks if no spacecraft have yet been launched, the surviving civilizations are then rated, and the one with the highest overall score is the winner.

A new world has been started at 2017-01-16 18:00 (UTC) with overview of the cities, modified food, production, trade and combat calculations, some GUI and performance improvements. A new world will be start at 2017-01-30 18:00 (UTC) with improved unit capabilities and bug fixes! This server will be two weeks long. Stay tuned! :)

Automated city governor

The city governor determines what citizens in a given city shall do. With the city governor, the game engine automatically optimize the city's food, production and trade income: all citizens try to work on available tiles and optimize the income that specified as preference (blue buttons). In new cities the city governor is disabled (three gray buttons on the details sidebar) and it is available only with subscription in case of popupation of the city more than 5, due the greater server load.
