                                  1.0 AUTHOR'S NOTE
    ******************************************************************************
    
    This is my first FAQ so I hope any readers that has any comments or 
    suggestions please let me know. You can email me through the email address 
    written on top. I'm kind of stuck here :(
    
    I'm not so free nowadays. Facing university application problem :(

                                    2.0 CONTROLS
    ******************************************************************************
    
    Control of this game is just almost the same as any recent Strategy games. 
    I will list only a few command(default).
    
    Attack Move:
    Clicking on the Attack button or hit A then click anyway on screen or map will
    order your units to move to the area you wish and will attack any enemy 
    insight. Peasants will only move the the area without attacking any enemy 
    insight.
    Beware, Don't do attack move while your units are fighting because they
    will move a few steps before they resume fighting. This is not what you want.
    
    Selecting Unit(s):
    ~Single left-click on any unit will select it. Double left click will select
     all of the same units on screen.
    ~Hold left mouse button then drag. Any units in box will be selected but there
     is some exception. If there are military units and peasants in your selected
     square area, only military units will be selected (scout included).
    ~Shift button can be use to add units into selected group. This also can be
     use to select two or more groups of units by holding shift while double
     clicking on a unit or hitting the group number you want.
     For example, F1 is a group of Archer while F2 is a group of Light Cavalry.
     After hitting F1, shift button is held down while you hit F2, both Archer
     and Light Cavalry is now selected.
    
    Grouping Units:
    17 groups can be made and 1 single unit can appear in all 17 groups. Once you
    have selected the unit(s) you want, press CTRL+(any number from 1-9 or F1-F8).
    
    Deselect unit(s) in a group:
    You can deselect units that you don't want to include in a group by holding 
    CTRL then click on unwanted unit(s) on screen or their potrait on the lower
    right.
    
    Zooming in & out:
    Using scroll mouse will be the most convinient method that is by scroll up to
    zoom out or scroll down to zoom in. If you don't have a scroll mouse or your
    scroll won't work, hit Page Up to zoom out or Page Down to zoon in.

                                    3.0 GAME TYPES
    ******************************************************************************
    
    Learn How to Play:
    A fast effective way to learn almost everything from this option. Once you 
    have completed every scenario, all you need is to get use to the commands, 
    buildings, units, technologies, research, resources and the map. I strongly
    suggest new player that knows nothing about Rise of Nations should go through
    this toturial first.

    The best way of playing this nation is to keep on attacking. Never hestitate
    to build a new Barracks 1st near your battleground to increase your rate of
    reinforcement. If you think you can capture or you are not ready to attack 
    you enemy's City, Get some seige units to destroy whatever buildings in sight.

      any resources.

    Goods at the market are 20% cheaper to buy and earn 20% more when sold during
    one battle
    - Not sure how good is it but 20% is a lot. I don't really use the market
      except in certain occasion.

    Some people might think that 21 turns are not enough to conquer the whole 
    world but I'm positive that it's possible because I've conquered the world map
    18 turns that is the 1st turn of Information Age. Tough difficulty not
    toughest, will try :)
    
    1. Expand to as many unoccupy land as possible but plan and choose where you
       should occupy 1st in order to get the most Supply Center, Rare Resources
       and even cards!!!
    2. Use your battle cards wisely, never use on battle that is against only 1
       enemy without reinforcement especially on City size 1-4. Not worth it.
    3. Try to make overrun attack whenever possible.
    4. Conquer as many nation as possible before reaching Industrial Age. It's
       harder to take over a high numbered City while you need to gather so many
       types of resources.
    5. Always target enemy's Capital. This is the key to success.

    Early game rush
    Using Japanese/German against 1 Toughest AI 
    1.  Move 2 peasants from Woodcutter's Camp to build 2 Farms. Train 3 peasants
        and research Military technology. Scout explore.
    2.  First 2 peasants from City to Timber, last build a Barracks near City.
    3.  Once Barracks done, peasants will automatically move to Woodcutter's Camp.
        Train 4 Ashigaru Spearmen then 1 Slinger.
    4.  Start attacking with 4 Ashigaru Spearmen and 1 slinger.
    5.  Research Science then Civic. Train 3 peasants.
    6.  1 peasant build a new City, the other 2 peasants build a Tower.
    7.  Once new City done build Woodcutter's Camp. Research Attrition damage once
        Tower is done. Research Classical Age.
    8.  Build Mine once Classical Age research done. And keep on pumping a 
        considerable amount of peasants to occupy Woodcutter's Camp and Mine.
        Upgrade Ashigaru Spearmen to Bashi. Build a University.
    9.  Build farm, market and research Commerce. Build another university.
    10. Train some Bashi, few Slingers, and 1-2 archer. Move 1 peasant to repair
        assimilating City.
    11. Build Stable, Granary, Ore Refinery and another Tower near new City.
    12. Build more farms and keep on training spearman, slinger and horsie +
        upgrade whenever possible.
    13. Build Siege Factory whenever possible incase enemy successfully build a
        tower.
    
    Note:
    You must know how to manage your army properly and don't give enemy a chance
    to build a tower. If they have army coming out of their Barracks, move all
    army to kill them 1st. Garrisoned City is not a threat due to their low 
    damage. If the first group of army died before they are able to capture a
    City, don't move only 1 or few units as reinforcement or to continue their
    attacks, make a large group before attacking. After several experiment, I've
    concluded that you can only beat 1 toughest AI with this strat in Arena map
    size. The key of this strat is capture the Capital 1st then slaughter those
    peasants especially those building Barracks or Towers. 
    #I've master this strat and I'm able to beat toughest AI in 7mins time that
    is before I'm able to research Attrition Damage.

                                  11.0 HINTS & TIPS
    ******************************************************************************
    
    There are many points that I've learn from experience and experimenting:-
    
    1. City's attack rate and damage will always be the same no matter how many
       peasants or foot units is garrisoned in it.
    
    2. Slingers and Archer are both ranged unit but 2 Slingers is needed in a
       Tower or Fort to do 1 Archer's work.
    
    3. Don't pile up resources for no reason. Use all of it to train army,
       research, or build buildings if possible.
    
    4. Building an Ore Smelter in an area of City that has no Mine is useless.
       It's the same with Granary and Lumber Mill but Oil Refinery's affect all of
       your oil resources.
    
    5. Build new City near resources so you can later build resource enhancement
       building to benefit you resource gather rate. Resource building must be in
       the economic radius circle in order to gain this benefit.
    
    6. Oil Refinery's effect do stack so build a few to maximize your Oil income.
       For example, 1 Oil Refinery increase 33% Oil production rate while 2 will
       increase 66% and so on.
    
    7. Try to upgrade your military units according to age in order to get the
       maximum potential. Try to overcome enemy's with better military. For
       example, Medieval units can kill Classical units easier.
    
    8. Do not forget Air Defences once you enemy reach Industrial Age. One Air
       Defence is not enough so build as many as possible. Air defences are cheap
       and can be constructed fast.
    
    9. Siege Units are extremely useful. They can layer buildings extremle fast
       from a far distance. It's not effective to use against enemy units but
       there is some exception. eg. Rocket Artillery can destroy tank easily and
       can take quite a large chunk of damage.
    
    10. Your siege units splash damage will affect your on units.
    
    11. Use pause button (P) in solo game whenever you need it or when you want to
        search for a strategic location to build City or buildings.
    
    12. Spies and Generals are extremely useful. They can turn the tide of a
        battle to your favor if used properly. At least 2 generals and 4 spies
        are advisable as support units in battle.
    
    13. Mass Bomber and Air Fighter is one of the easiest way to win a battle or
        to destroy a massive amount of buildings and weakening ground units.
    
    
    to be continue....
