"It said somewhere that the more weapons, the more officers/soldiers i" would need... sell your military and work on the economy until you can afford it money wise and people wise. Your main country is in Secured Mode, built a strong economy first.

Yeah man, you don't get soldiers/officers. They are low level workers and medium level managers get employed as them. They are on the state payroll meaning your paying all these extra low level workers/medium level managers to sit on their arse all day drinking beer, as opposed to slaving on an assembly line putting the heads on barbie dolls or some other droll tedious action. All other state employees actually benefit the state, military doesn't especially if there is a 0% chance of you being invaded (secured mode).

Use the military to sack the guy/gal next door.

Go to departments-education-education priorities. Set the priority for Mid-level manager much higher.

Mid-level managers are your officers.

You can also exchange workers with someone.

About why i wanted a higher army.. its because i want to get level 2 fast.. but im guessing it doesnt work like that, i have to raise the other stuff first..

If i dismantle units, will i get some workers back? Or i have to disactivate weapons?

While im at it, i got a question more or less related.. i took over a cpu controlled country.. but i cant do anything with it, and its rotting down, since i cant manage it at all.. am i missing something?

If your looking to get to do level 2 do as Pathetic Sheep had said. Low level workers and Medium level mangers are the back bone of your military. The issue is sometimes creating a large military will conflict and shatter your economy. Unless your ready for it ; )

I believe dismantling will make some available to you.. Getting rid of them/deactivating does even more.

Dismantling will get in the way of reaching level 2. You can dismantle units (divisions etc) but don't destroy or sell the weapons. You have to have a defense index (combined military total) of 75 to get to level 2.

When you deactivate weapons they go into storage. Unfortunately the game won't let you deactivate the defensive weapons below some level.

Sacking the guy next door will also delay getting too level 2 because you will need a 75 index average for both countries.


Go to the sim-country portal.

You need to play as the president of the captured territory.

The sim-country portal link is at the top of the right side bar. The first one.

Thanks a lot for all the help, very appreciated.

and yeah, the main reason i need lvl 2 is that i need GC to keep playing.. im missing 1 gold coin lol.. and i highly doubt, especially now that i know its the average of 75 for both countries i own that is counted.. oh well, gotta try..

Yeah unregister the second country. If one country will hemorrhage cash to get to level 2, two countries will hemorrhage twice as much cash getting to level 2. If your interested in reaching higher levels you will need an enterprise first before you need an empire, if you can't manage your main country then there is no point building an empire.

You need a decent population and index basis (to support a number of well manage corporations) which should hopefully provide you with the income to support a DFI of 75 along with all the other index requirements.
I think finance requirements should be changed to 100, that way you adleast need to break even with your countries finances to reach the next level.

I dont know know if its a good idea, but could i just hold on to both and decide, if one country cant reach 75, to cancel it to get my lvl 2?

I mean, is my slave country affecting in any way my main country, providing i dont transfer anything to that 2nd country?

I havent decided if i wanted to just be a full member now(i will later on), or try to get lvl 2 to be able to keep playing..

Yes getting to levels requires and average of the requirements. 75 defense index means you need 75 in each country or 75 x (the number of countries you control). Having an empire can allow you to produce more profits and support a larger army then a single country, but slave countries have no secured mode which makes then vulnerable to invasion, and if your not making profit in your empire it means you will loose funds at a higher rate as haveing a single country.

If you ever want to grow a country to a decent size, you will have to become a full member.

On white giant there are so many computer controlled countries that you do not need a 75 defense index to avoid getting attacked. There are huge sections of continents with no one in them at all.
