Hey guys, I am new to game, so bear with me and thanks in advance. )
Installed the game, played couple of vanilla games to get taste of it and installed CoS. Couple of observations/questions if you don't mind.
I started on easy in vanilla and it was obvious I was obliterating them on small/medium maps and 3 enemies.
Tried challenging after installing CoS, but now I am back to normal, due to following ->
First thing I noticed was that neutral enemies around were tougher (or is it just me?) and I found it harder to level up, while also being defeated couple of times by enemies with 60-70 HP. Is this intended? I had to restart a couple of games.
Also, when I am starting the game, I get only the new factions, from what I can notice. I love undead, angels and it all looks good, but what, for example, I would like to play a human summoner? Am I missing something?
And tips would be appreciated.
Also, two non-mod questions: why I can't settle outside the first starting tile? Sometimes it seems it's just not the best spot (for example, very close to the ocean or mountains - is ocean useless?); coming from Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri heritage, I am used to finding the sweetest spot for starting base.
Also, those quests with statues (like, find Two Dragon something) - they keep pointing me to that statue, like I have to do something there, although to me it seems I am missing something then. Is it like an entrance to a cave or something I am missing to activate?
Thanks again, hope you can help me to get started better.
