    3. THE BASICS
    -/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-
    
    This section will introduce you to the main aspects of playing the game, even
    if you are already familar with most aspects of play I still suggest you read
    here first as it will give extra details that you will not read elsewhere in 
    this guide such as when to harvest resources, and what basic things to do
    when building the base.
    
    Contents:
    
    3a) The Resources........................................................[100%]
    3b) Building the Base....................................................[100%]
    3c) Scouting.............................................................[100%]

    3g) Hotkeys..............................................................[100%]
    
    ...............................................................................
    3a) THE RESOURCES
    ...............................................................................
    
    
    There are 4 resources that you need to collect in order to suceed in this game,
    each resource is important to building up your armies and defenses, or if you
    are playing a monument game they are needed for building a monument in vast 
    quantities, below I will give a description of when to harvest them and how
    many workers you should have on them.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Food
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is absoloutly vital for your civilization, without it you cannot build 
    troops or workers, so the civilization fails easily. There are many sources of
    food in the game, the most common is muja fruit bushes, although you can get it
    from hunting, fishing, farms and animal nurserys.
    
    The thing that I do when I first start a map is to get the scout out looking
    for Nerfs and Banthas which you can store in your animal nursery so that you
    have a steady supply of food coming in, this will also allow you to have more
    workers gathering other resources due to not needing a lot to gather food as 
    Animal Nurserys do not need a worker near them. I do not hunt much at the start
    of the game due to the risk of death to workers although if there are some
    docile creatures near your base you can start to kill and gather these, but 
    remember as soon as an animal is killed the meat starts decaying so it is best
    to build a Food Processing Centre close to the main food source and have lots 
    of workers on one animal. If you workers start getting attacked by animals send
    some troops out there to kill it, although if you have aircraft avalible send
    them out as the animals cannot attack them. When you run out of natural sources
    of food you should build farms, although you can only build them if you have a
    food processing centre.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Ore
    ===============================================================================
    
    Ore is a crystal type thing that comes out of the ground, you will notice them.
    Ore is used for defending the base such as building walls and turrets so it is
    absoloutly vital that you begin to mine it as soon as possible if you are 
    playing on hard difficulty modes as you will always be attacked, so it makes it
    easier to defend your workers and buildings. I suggest that you start mining
    this is in tech level 2 so that you can get the most amount of ore possible to
    start building walls and turrets to destroy the attacking enemy.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Nova Crystals
    ===============================================================================
    
    There are two main sources of Nova Crystals, Holocrons and Nova deposits. I
    will go into detail on them both in a minute. Nova Crystals are used for making
    aircraft, researching some advanced technologies and building Jedi. Therefore
    it is vital if you are going to make the most advanced and powerful
    civilization to crush your opposition. 
    
    Nova Deposits which are the green crystals that stick out of the ground need to
    be gathered by workers and either deposited at the command centre or at a Nova
    Processing Centre.
    
    Holocrons on the other hand need to be picked up by Jedi or Sith and then 
    stored at the Jedi/Sith Temple, these will generate a steady supply of Nova
    Crystals, roughly 45 per minute for each Holocron stored. One of the ways to
    win the game is to have control of all Holocrons on the map for a certain
    amount of time. Like the ore you should begin to gather this around Tech Level
    2 so that you have a good supply
    
    ===============================================================================
    Carbon
    ===============================================================================
    
    Carbon is an vital resource that you should begin gathering straight away, it 
    is used to build almost all buildings and new units. There are two sources for
    it and they are Trees and Carbon deposits, each gives the same amount of Carbon
    but it depends on what map you play on. If you play on a forest map you will
    gather carbon from trees and on a desert map you will gather from deposits.
    
    You should build a carbon centre nearby your main source of carbon to research
    carbon gathering technologies and to speed up the process of gathering carbon.
    In my experience if you have an Animal Nursery it is best to have more workers
    gathering carbon than any other resource as it is needed a lot more.
    
    ...............................................................................
    3b) BUILDING THE BASE
    ...............................................................................
    
    
    The first thing to do is to start scouting the area for possible entrances to
    the base so you can defend it when you reach Tech Level 2, you also want to
    start building prefab shelters once you have enough resources. This things you
    should build is a Carbon Processing Centre, you should also build an Animal
    Nursery if you find between 8-10 Nerfs or Banthas. 
    The most important thing you should build in the early stages of your base is
    a Power Core, this will allow you to power your base and allow your buildings
    to produce at 100% efficiency, unpowered they would only work at 25%. You will
    not need to build a Troop Centre early on if you are on easy difficulty
    settings, if on harder difficulty settings it should be one of the first
    buildings as it is vital to protect your base early on.
    Once you are in Tech Level 3, you can build the buildings you don't currently
    have because they are good for building up forces, there are some buildings you
    should build depending on how you will attack see the section on sieges.
    
    ...............................................................................
    3c) SCOUT
    ...............................................................................
    
    Scouting the area should be the number 1 thing you do when your workers
    are gathering resources when you start out a new map, it should be done
    at the start otherwise it will be too dangerous later as there will be
    lots of enemy troops in the area. The main things you are looking for
    are all ememy command centres, possible ways into your base, holocrons
    and resources for when you expand.
    If you are on an island explore your entire island first, then build a
    dock and use the utility trawlers to scout around the other islands and
    see what Islands are inhabited and ones that are not but rich with 
    resources. 
    As long as you do not attack any enemies during scouting at the start
    of the map, you will not be attacked back. But if you attack someone
    by the command centre you have lost a scout.
    
    ...............................................................................
    3d) ATTACKING
    ...............................................................................
    
    
    There is a lot of detail on this in the section on sieges. This section will go
    through the basics of attacking.
    You won't need to worry too much about assigning groups on simple difficulty
    sections, but it is important once you are more experienced in the game. To
    find out how to assign units to groups go to the Hotkey Section which can be
    found below.
    To attack a unit select your unit and then right click on the building or unit
    that you want to attack, there is not much to it. There are lots of different
    types of attacking units and they each do different jobs.
    
    Troops - Good for attacking enemy troops.
    Heavy Weapons - Good for demolishing Walls and Buildings.
    Air Craft - Good for taking out buildings and units. Can only be damaged by
    anti air craft devices.
    Mechs - Some are OK for attacking but not overly powerful.
    Ships - Good for scouting and attacking docks and other ships.
    
    ...............................................................................
    3e) TECH LEVELS
    ...............................................................................
    
    
    Tech Levels, the most important thing for advancing in the game, well not 
    really the resources are but this is second most important. Advancing a Tech
    Level basically gets you lots of new technologies and buildings which basically
    gives you the edge over your enemy, for example if you had an Advanced Mounted
    Trooper from Tech Level 2 and your enemy had a normal Mounted Trooper you would
    win the fight due to having the most powerful unit. Therefore you must always
    research a new tech level when you have the resources, click the Command Centre
    to view what the specifications are, and click the Research Tech Level (Insert
    Number Here). Its also very enjoyable when you are on Tech Level 3 and the 
    enemy is on Tech Level 1 and you just attack them with your air craft as they
    have no means of protecting themselves.

    3f) STANDARD MODE GAME
    ...............................................................................
    
    The following are descriptions from the game manual on what different modes are
    played.
    
    - Random Map, The terrain will be randomly generated, and standard rules will
    apply unless you dictate otherwise.
    
    - Terminate the Commander, Each player begins with a fortress and commander,
    the object of the game is to eliminate the opposing commanders so you can rule 
    the map.
    
    - Death Match, You begin with plenty of resources and can begin building an 
    army and attacking straight away.
    
    - Commander of the Base, Capture a central monument and hold it for a period of
    time, the gain control of the monument all enemy units within range of the
    monument must be destroyed.
    
    - Monument Race, Be the first to build a monument, no military action is
    allowed in this mode of play.
    
    - Defend the monument, You begin with a monument and well defend it which is 
    obvious really from the title. *Bit of humour there for you*

    4. BUILDING LIST
    -/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-
    
    This at the moment is a basic list of all buildings in the game, and what each
    building does, in the next update it will show the HP for each building along
    with attack power, if it is a turret etc.
    
    Contents:

    4c) Research Buildings...................................................[100%]
    
    ...............................................................................
    4a) ECONOMIC BUILDINGS
    ...............................................................................
    
    ===============================================================================
    Prefab Shelter
    ===============================================================================
    
    Prefab Shelter's allow you to house extra units, this is the way to
    expand your population. Each prefab shelter allows you to build 5 extra
    units, unless you are the Galactic Republic which means you get 6
    units. Gungans can build them underwater and Trade Federation do not
    need to build them at all.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Power Core
    ===============================================================================
    
    Vital to your economy, without it buildings will only work at 25%
    efficiency. So everything will work 75% slower such as when you are
    researching new technologies and building units. The command centre is
    self powered. You can tell if a building is powered by looking at the
    lights, if they are green it is powered, if red they need to be
    powered.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Ore Processing Centre
    ===============================================================================
    
    The ore Processing Centre should be built near your main source of Ore.
    Without this your workers will carry all ore back to your command
    centre, this will make your workers less efficient.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Nova Crystal Processing Centre
    ===============================================================================
    
    Nova should like the Ore Processing Centre should be built by your main
    source of Nova, you can research Nova gathering upgrades here.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Command Centre
    ===============================================================================
    
    The basis of your whole base. This is where you research new technology
    levels and build workers, if you have no dedicated resource centres
    this is where your workers will bring gathered resources. If there is 
    an attack you can garrison workers here to fire out of it.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Monument
    ===============================================================================
    
    One way to win the game, it takes a lot of resources and a long time to
    build, doesn't have much use, so avoid building one if you are going
    for conquest.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Carbon Processing Centre
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is used to gather carbon, build near your main supply of Carbon.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Animal Nursery
    ===============================================================================
    
    Garrison Nerfs and Banthas here so that you can can get a steady of
    supply of food coming in every minute, only build if you find 8-10 
    Nerfs or Banthas or otherwise it is pointless. It is also needed to
    build Mounted troopers at the troop centre.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Food Processing Centre
    ===============================================================================
    
    Build near main supply of food, needed for a farm, not much use
    although you can make a queue for farms so that they are built
    automatically.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Farm 
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is used if you have run out of natural resources, it should be
    built near your food processing centre and all upgrades for it should
    be purchased as soon as possible.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Aqua Harvester
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is like a farm, except it is built in the water and trawlers
    collect from it.
    
    
    ...............................................................................
    4b) MILITARY/WAR BUILDINGS
    ...............................................................................
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    Fortress
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is used to build your civilization specific unit, it can also be used to
    expand your population by 20 units, it can also be used to build a cannon
    later on.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Troop Centre
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is the basic military building. You can building the staple of any army, 
    the infantry such as mounted troops and ground troopers, also grenade troopers
    and anti-air troopers.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    Mech Factory
    ===============================================================================
    
    This building is used to create mechs such as the AT-AT's and Scouts which you
    can use if your first scout is killed.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Ship Yard
    ===============================================================================
    
    Used to build ships to transport, attack, scout and to collect fish for you.
    Building ships will give you an edge on your enemies.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Medium Wall
    ===============================================================================
    
    This will be your first type of wall that you should build, it is both strong
    and a good defensive.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Heavy Wall
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is a very strong wall and will give a lot of defensive for you, there is
    hardly any chance of a small army without artillery and heavy weapons.
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    Shield Generator
    ===============================================================================
    
    This will give extra protection to all your buildings in range, it is good if
    you are being attacked a lot as while the enemy are taking extra time to attack
    your buildings you can destroy them with aircraft etc.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Medium Turret
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is a ranged tower that will allow you to destroy attacking troops with in
    range, this is perfect defensive for early invasions, watch out for the enemies
    ones as well.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Jedi/Sith Temple
    ===============================================================================
    
    Store Holocrons and build Jedi/Sith here, they are a powerful battlefield force
    but you do not want many of them.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Light Wall
    ===============================================================================
    
    I don't suggest building this wall, it offers next to no protection and will be
    destroyed quite quickly, it is basically a waste of resources.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Advanced Anti-Air Turret
    ===============================================================================
    
    This will attack on-coming enemy aircraft, this is vital if playing on a hard
    difficulty setting as you will be constantly attacked by aircraft and this is
    one of the only ways to destroy them.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Light Turret
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is a ranged tower that will allow you to destroy attacking troops with in
    range, this is perfect defensive for early invasions, watch out for the enemies
    ones as well.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Air Base
    ===============================================================================
    
    Build and upgrade aircraft here, this is good if you want to destroy the enemy
    quickly with next to no damage, unless they have anti-air defences.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Sentry Post
    ===============================================================================
    
    This can be used to give extra view of surrounding area, apart from that it has
    no attack capabilities, so useless once you get turrets.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Anti-Air Turret
    ===============================================================================
    
    This will attack on-coming enemy aircraft, this is vital if playing on a hard
    difficulty setting as you will be constantly attacked by aircraft and this is
    one of the only ways to destroy them.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Gate
    ===============================================================================
    
    Once you have built a wall you will want access for your troops, so build one 
    of these otherwise you will be stuck in your base.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Shield Wall
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is the strongest type of wall avalible, and should be used if you have the
    resources to buy it.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Heavy Weapons Factory
    ===============================================================================
    
    Build Heavy weapons here such as artillery and pummels, this is good if you
    have walls to penetrate and buildings to destroy that have anti-air defences.
    
    ...............................................................................
    4c) RESEARCH BUILDINGS
    ...............................................................................
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    Spaceport
    ===============================================================================
    
    You to buy, sell and trade resources. You can build trade routes here which 
    will bring back Nova Crystals from every journey.
    
    ===============================================================================
    War Center
    ===============================================================================
    
    You upgrade various things about your military units here, it is good if you
    want to make the most powerful fighting force, and lets face it who does not 
    want to.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Research Center
    ===============================================================================
    
    Research upgrades to ranged units and buildings here, not really useful unless
    you want to upgrade the defence of your buildings.

    unit.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Mounted Trooper, Heavy Mounted Trooper, Advanced Mounted Trooper.
    ===============================================================================
    
    This mounted unit is used for melee attacks and can detect concealed Jedi and 
    Sith units. Its best use is to attack Mech's although it has an attack bonus 
    against Buildings so useful when attacking a base, it is made in the troop 
    centre.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Trooper Recruit, Trooper, Heavy Trooper, Repeater Trooper.
    ===============================================================================
    
    Early on this is the most powerful unit in the game, but you will gradually need
    it less when there are mechs and more powerful units, these are quick to die. 
    They are made in the troop centre.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Anti-Air Trooper, Heavy Anti-Air Trooper.
    ===============================================================================
    
    These are weak units with a powerful attack against aircraft, they are only 
    needed when your enemy has reached Tech Level 3 as they cannot attack ground
    units. They are made at the troop centre.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Grendade Trooper
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is a powerful unit although very expensive, when you are attacking troops
    make sure your ones are out of the area before launching a grenade as it will 
    damage your troops as well, made in the the troop centre.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Scouts
    ===============================================================================
    
    They are very weak but they are quick, they should only be used for scouting not

    ===============================================================================
    Mech Destroyer, Heavy Mech Destroyer
    ===============================================================================
    
    These are capable of destroying strike mechs, they are good when you troops are
    being destroyed and you need to attack them quickly and get rid of the enemy. 
    It can carry 1 unit in it which will make its attack more powerful. It is made
    at the Mech Factory.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Assault Mech, Heavy Assualt Mech
    ===============================================================================
    
    An very strong unit made at the Mech Factory they delivers powerful attacks and
    can damage severely anything in its blast radius, it can carry some units. Made
    at the Mech Factory.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Utility Trawler
    ===============================================================================
    
    A worker that fishes and can construct aqua harvesters, it makes underwater
    prefab shelters if you are a Gungan. Made at the Naval Yard.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Transport Ship
    ===============================================================================
    
    This carries units from one part to another over water, it has no ttack
    capabilities so if it is attacked you will lose all units on it, so it is best
    to send an attack ship with it or at least an aircraft to defend it. Made at the
    Naval Yard.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Light Frigate, Frigate, Advanced Frigate
    ===============================================================================
    
    This ship is very fast and is equipped with a basic weapon and should be used 
    for defending and scouting. It can also detect hidden sea units. Made at the
    Naval Yard.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Destroyer, Heavy Destroyer
    ===============================================================================
    
    This unit is specifically suited to destroying other sea units, such as 
    transport ships. Made at the Naval Yard.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Anti Air estroyer, Heavy Anti Air Destroyer
    ===============================================================================
    
    This is used to protect your units from air attacks, although they cannot fire
    at land or sea units, made at the Naval Yard.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Cruiser/ Advanced Cruiser
    ===============================================================================
    
    These are a bit like the artillery of the sea, they deliver powerful attacks
    and are good for coastal attacks, they are very weak against air units, made
    at the Naval Yard.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Air Transport
    ===============================================================================
    
    These carry units through the air, ideal if you want to get your units to an
    inland destination over the sea which you cannot reach with sea transport. Made
    at the Air Base.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Bomber, Enhanced Bomber, Advanced Bomber
    ===============================================================================
    
    Bombers cannot fight air to air but are very powerful against buildings and 
    stationary ground units. Made at the Air Base.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Fighter, Fast Fighter, Advanced Fighter
    ===============================================================================

    This is an attack unit, must be close to the building, good for attacking 
    buildings and walls, made at the Heavy Weapons Factory.
    
    ===============================================================================
    All Jedi and all Sith
    ===============================================================================
    
    They are very powerful and collect holocrons from around the map and garrison 
    them at the Jedi or Sith temple, made at the specific temple depending on the
    civilization.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Unique Units
    ===============================================================================

    6. USE OF FORMATIONS
    -/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-
    
    Very small section here on Formations and can sometimes give you the tactical
    advantage over other players.
    
    Line Formation, This is the default formation, all units are put into a line. 
    It is the most common formation in the game and should be used if you want all
    your units in one small place.
    
    Staggered Formation, Spaces your units out, it is good if you are under attack
    from artillery fire as the units are in a wider area so the damage to each unit
    is reduced.
    
    Box Formation, This should be used if you want to protect weaker units such as
    artillery when you are attacking a base.
    
    Flank Formation, Splits the units selected into two groups so that you can 
    attack from two seperate sides.

    7. DEFENDING THE BASE
    -/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-
    
    Defending is a very good thing to do early in the game, at all times you should
    have a good set of units left at your base to defend from surprise attacks. 
    When you first reach Tech Level 2 begin to mine Ore so that you can build some
    Medium Walls. While you are mining send your scout out to look for all possible
    entrances to your base. These are the areas that you need to wall up.
    Once you have enough ore, start building walls with as many workers as possible
    so that it is built quickly. After the wall is built you should build turrets,
    there is no need to build anti air turrets until your enemy is on Tech Level 3,
    as that is when they build aircraft. Build the turrets near the gate as this is
    where you will be attacked by the enemy, if they start attacking walls get your
    workers to repair it.
    If they destroy a turret or wall get your aircraft out there to kill them, if 
    you have no aircraft get your troops to destroy them, if worse comes to worse
    and you are over run garrison workers in your command centre so that they can
    attack back.

    8. SIEGES
    -/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-
    
    These if you aiming to be a more military based civilization and to crush all 
    your enemies this is what you should do.
    
    The first thing you should do is build up your army depending on how you are
    going to attack. If you are going to go long range but strong build up 
    artillery and some ground units to protect them. For close range use Pummels,
    Mounted troopers, Assault mechs and troopers. For long range and a ram attack
    stock up on both, I will now go into detail of what you must do for each attack
    to get you a win.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Long Range Attack
    ===============================================================================
    
    Set up a line of artillery and cannons far enough away from the enemy so you do
    not get attacked but close enough so you can destroy buildings, this means not 
    placing them near Command Centres, Turrets and Fortresses. If everything in the
    range is destroyed move them closer. Once you are in the Base things get more
    complicated set your army out so that the cannons are on the front and the 
    artillery weapons are on the two sides, troops should go in the middle. Once 
    you have destroyed a good amount of the base send your troops in.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Attacking Up Close
    ===============================================================================
    
    Bring a lot of troopers, these are for defence and distraction. Bring the 
    troopers forward distracting all enemy that fire, bring the pummels forward and
    attack the buildings, this should work throughout the whole attack but a lot
    of planning will need to be put into it.
    
    ===============================================================================
    Attacking with both attacks
    ===============================================================================
    
    Start by using the long range strategy and then move pummels in to take out
    buildings, have cannons and artillery stay at the entrance with some troopers,
    while pummels take out buildings, if there are no anti air defence take in some
    aircraft as well which will make the job easier.

    9. PLAYING MULTIPLAYER
    -/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-
    
    Multiplayer is basically the same as single player, except you are playing 
    someone over the internet. To access multiplayer mode click the option 
    "Zone.com" on the main title page. Then go through the options, installing what
    they tell you until you find either Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds or Clone
    Campaigns, depending on what game you want to play. Make sure you choose the
    right room for you, as if the room is labelled "Experts Only" do not enter it
    and ruin other peoples games. When the game is launched you will be at the 
    civilization select screen, do that. You can also chat in the lobby here to 
    the other players. To complete it select "I am Ready" and the game will begin.
    Basically use the tactics I have outlined before and you can't go far wrong.
    Good luck.
