Empire Builder

big city from alpha version

Your colony ship crash-lands on an uncharted world. Like it or not, you're settling here.

Build up your empire.

  • - Pick a government type which will provide varying bonuses. Such as democracies having a higher tax rate, but high upkeep costs.
  • - Choose an area to place the capital.
  • - Build its economy, by providing houses for your people to live in. Produce metal, oil, food, and electricity.
  • - Sell resources on the market to gain credits, however other empires will be able to buy what you sell.
  • - Advance technologically, and become the most advanced empire. Build expensive laboratories to improve the science rating of your empire.
  • - Build a military from infantry, vehicles and aircraft. Militaries cost upkeep, so don't bankrupt yourself otherwise your military will become ineffective.
  • - Ally, set neutral or attack other players.
  • - The Native Creatures are dynamic, they will produce new hives, spawning pools and evolution chambers to advance themselves. Destroy them before it becomes too late.* Published on NA.

The project was more or less abandoned by it's original creator and I'm picking up the pieces, so you are all playing an unfinished game atm.


1: What is your favorite type of military unit

2: What Government/Econ mix do you usually pick?

3: Do you use the bank? If so, can you explain how and why?

3: What are your most/least favorite areas of the map?

4:What terrains do you find the most/least appealing?

5: How quickly can you solo the AI? (Please state time, difficulty, government type, and economy type)

6: If you can solo this map on the hardest difficulty, what would make it more fun/challenging for you?

    1 hr 51 into the game (just dawdling with a buddy, having some fun) and things turn invisible ( battlenet://starcraft/map/2/145336 v 5.1 on the arcade) and we cant do anything about it... cant put walls back up after we open them, cant see where or what we're getting attacked by or anything like that...

    Is this supposed to happen? Are we supposed to be able to build a detector?

    If Kenji or Anteep have the most recent build of the map with all the most recent bug fixes and such, I will repair the map and get it working fully to the best of my abilities. I know how to fix a few bugs that currently exist.

    This has been a real bother for me, but is the oil consumption for the production of vehicles one-time, or per tick?

    Can you update a map to have better places to start a city so you dont have to use many walls, preferably on cliffs. and add somre more units like battlecruiser and or protoss vehicles and other defense weapons? maybe some new buildings and options? i love empire builder i play it all the time. old and new versions. i never know though which versions are the newest as sc2 doesnt have a way to show which ones youve played before. the version i like best is with the zerg in the middle of the map, not the protoss. and might need some tweaking with building up credits and tax faster. by the time im able to get some ground guns up the fliers come in before i can get turrets so im forced to play the game offline with cheats. there was a version which had the best payout. not sure which it is. empire builder NEW i think? but the military buttons missing on that so i quit playing it. thanks =)

    the missing button is fixed on the NA version, you need to change your options to fix it. Something like "show advanced buttons" or "hide quick buttons"

    2 things I've found.
    1. Multiplayer on Easy difficulty does not show where the enemy is on first player's minimap.
    2. Friend kept saying that corporate is overpowered. Money is the main resource after all, so you can use it to simply fix your economy problems.

    Where have you gone anyway? Been a while since you last checked back.

    Any way of fixing that missing military button?

    Cant be played like this (at least on EU) what is really sad because this small bug is just breaking this game completely.

    @RedrumJackle: Go

    That's exactly what I did. I fixed it in the most recent patch. Thanks for looking into it.

    Kenji, I may have an idea as to what happened with the power plant. I cant look at your code right now, but I'm thinking it may have to do with the check of Uranium owned, and the number = 1.

    Example: Trigger Target == 1 Uranium

    If you change it to =>1 it may regulate as normal.

    I also started school, so it'll be rare to see me very often. Hope things are going well for you. ^_^
