1) You can buy computer-controlled countries and add them to your empire - it costs 300 GC, or about $30. Other than that, you can join a common market to make trade partners.
2) Just figure out what stuff your country makes, and make plants that supply it and/or are supplied by it. I can't find your country(make sure you spelled the name right), but in any country Services, Factory Maintenance, Electric Power, and the like are always good. If you have a corp that makes oil, open one that makes gasoline or aircraft fuel. You can always figure out how supply chains work by clicking the name of the product - to go downstream, click "Find corporations that use X", and to go upstream, click "Build corporation to produce X" and note what the corp's supply requirements are.

So the chain is auto as long as I build them. I don't want to buy a new country I just want mine to expand its area.

1) Makdana is computer-controlled. Perhaps include a link to your country?
2) Not quite, but you just need to set up a contract between the two corps. It's pretty easy.
3) Your country cannot change its borders. However, growing your *empire* is quite possible - get other countries, and they act sort of like one big country.

The great state of makdana

Just to correct - The Grand State of Makdana on White Giant.
First of all, i would say stop getting so many mining companies.
To get yourself up and running, focus on industry. As you're game level 2, i would look into some GL2 corps such as:-
Home Equipment, Household Products, Books and Newspapers etc etc
These will in turn will help you increase your profit. Without the income booster, you would be -3B per month.
I'd try and get your education and transport index to 150 and health to about 130 or 140.
Other than that, you look fine (but i'm hoping more experienced players help out and fill in where i haven't).
2. To expand, you either declare war on other countries (C3S - Computer controlled), or you buy the countries with gold coins.

The problem that I have now is trying to have all my corps feed each other. They won't I'd have to atemp web version just to try to make contract's which crashes or lags. I had mines that was to feed cem co, that feed bats and farms and power, power feeds mines. But its not working at all, the corp selling to world only.

Okay, I found how to play as Peaceful. My countries stats that are needed to advance to level 3 are all green checked but I'm still at level2 not 3. Is there a cap if I'm not a premium player?
| Monday, December 7, 2015 - 12:59 pm |
When I logged in this morning , I'd been advanced to level 3, now to add 6 million to my population.

Shadenrune: If you want corps to sell to each other, go to Common Market -> Accept Contracts for Products your Corporations need -> Accept Only Local Market Contract offers(at the bottom) -> Confirm. It's by far the easiest way to have your corps feed each other.
Pelwrath: Non-premium players are capped at game level 3, FYI.

You forgot one minor detail, odssstudents1.
Fist, he needs to go to each company's web page. Click on "Products offered", click on "common market contracts for your corporation", then offer at least some of your production to the local and/or common market.
In case you didn't know, shadrenrune (just covering the bases here), the local market is inside your country. A common market is between specific countries - and has to be set up or you can join one. You have to ask to join one.
Once you have product offered on your markets, you can go to each company's web page, and click on "Supplies", click on "common market contracts for your corporation", select "Local and Common Market" for everything, then click the "Modify Supply Contracts" button. This will create a contract to supply each company with everything that is available on your market.
A few things to note.
1. Companies usually produce more than 100% of their "expected production", but how much more varies. I limit my contracts to 100% of production IF the company was producing at only 100%. Thus, a company producing 117%, contracted at 100%, will put the excess 17% on the international market. I limit it to have some buffer against variability in production, supplies, hiring, efficiency, etc.. You don't have to; but I recommend something similar.
2. Once I finished creating all my contracts, I cancelled all the leftover offers I had. I'm not sure if it matters, though.
3. You will often run out of something before you've finished supplying all your companies. So, when you created a contract, and it only supplies 30% (or anything less than 100%) of that company's needs - you just contracted all of that product you offered on the market.
4. I just forgot what I was about to write.
4.1. The contract price will always be the current market price X the quality(Q). So if the world market price is rock bottom at the time, so will the price. That's good for the buying company, but sucks for your selling company. And vice versa if the price is pegged to the ceiling. The market price has to change by over 50% before your contracted price is updated.
4.2. Oh, now I remember - Clicking on 'Accept only local, or common market offers' - don't be fooled by the word "only". Your company will still go to the international market for whatever it can't find on the local & common markets. Whatever is not contracted will still be bought on the intl. market just like normal.
5. Make sure you have tons of high tech plebs before you buy more population. Your bought population will have the same makeup as your existing population. So if you're short high tech guys, then the population you buy will also be short high tech guys!
Whew, now my brain is emptied out.
If I'm wrong about anything, I'm sure someone with more experience will let you know. They've sure helped me a lot.

P.S. Oh, and one last thing... (in Columbo's voice). You can make contracts with your country too. from the top menu, click on "trade", then "contracts", then "Common Market Contracts for your Country". You can create contracts, one at a time, or scroll all the way to the bottom and click on the bottom button "Accept Local and Common Market Contract Offers", then click "Confirm" To create them all at once. But as your population increases, so does their consumption. Which means what was contracted at 100% today won't be 100% a month from now.

how do you make a new subject/topic
| Wednesday, December 9, 2015 - 01:00 pm |
Scroll to the very bottom of the forum you want to post in.

I haven't been able to find it on mobile version

Hello I am a new player. How do I attack other countries.I'm a free member
| Thursday, January 7, 2016 - 11:35 pm |
War -> Declare War. I assume you're trying to attack a computer country, right? If so, you may want to check out Aries' guide to doing so successfully in this forum. It works well.
| Saturday, January 9, 2016 - 11:56 am |
I can't see such an option
| Saturday, January 9, 2016 - 12:00 pm |
There are only two columns in the homepage each with menus ranging from all levels, finance, health, trade,transportation,education, army, welfare, corporations and country map.From which of this will I declare war?
| Saturday, January 9, 2016 - 12:17 pm |
Could the issue be that I'm using my phone instead of computer?
| Saturday, January 9, 2016 - 02:23 pm |
Oh, yeah, that's your problem. The phone app is still in alpha, more or less, and it doesn't have nearly the same functionality as the web version.
| Saturday, January 9, 2016 - 03:58 pm |
Oh okay thanks a lot
