Survival Guide - Dust Settles: The Economy Path
The Economy Path is for those people more interested in making money and creating
a strong backing for that money. With the ability to earn points by smelting
gold palettes, this path will provide you the tools needed to conquer others
through shear economic power.
In order to open this focus path, you will need to research
both Marketing and Architecture to 40. Once you have done this, the Economist
Center will become an option for construction on your Construct
page. This building will take 30,000 workers,
3,000 land, and 6,000 building
supplies to construct. Once constructed you will be locked into the Economy
path. You cannot demolish your focus building, nor can you construct one of
the others. Constructing this building will immediately open the abilities associated
with this focus path.
Once you have constructed your Economist Center, you will be set on the Economy
Focus Path and will have the abilities that come with it. On this path, you
gain the ability to smelt the gold ore
you gain from your mines into gold palettes.
These palettes will give you a boost in score, 2 points apiece. Beyond this,
setting yourself on a focus path will open
your level 3 ops missions, allowing you to
make attacks on other camps targeted at their specific path. Your gold palettes
will be produced through your Focus Path page.
The link for this page will open once you have built your Economist Center.
Once you have set yourself on the Economy Path, your Focus Path
page will open and hold your smelting options. As long as you have some gold
ore and a few free people, you can begin
smelting gold. For only 100 worker days and 1 unit of gold, you can smelt a
gold palette. Each palette will give you 2 points. You can smelt as many palettes
each turn as you can provide the workers, vault
space, and the gold for. If you do not have enough gold for a palette, production
will halt just before it is finished until you end
another turn with the gold needed. Also if you do not have enough extra
vault space, production will halt until you do.
