Free Evony Resources

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

I’m sure you all have seen somebody in the world chat typing something like this: “cmd:cheat:lumber:1000”. Alternatively, you may have seen somebody say “For 10k of each resource, press ALT-F4”.

Now this is very annoying to people who are legitimately trying to use the world chat. In addition, it is an obscene abuse of the world chat and rude to the new players of Evony. These people who are sending these messages should be reported and permanently banned from ever playing Evony again.

There is no such thing as a Evony cheat. There is no way to type something so that you can automatically obtain the resources lumber, stone, food, or iron. So please do not make a fool out of yourself by typing “cheats” that somebody cleverly told you about.

Straight to the point: do not press ALT-F4 or ALT-W. These will close your browser and leave you very confused. It is simply a sad joke to get “newbies” to become bewildered at why their screen went away.

So next time you see someone trying to “cheat”, or somebody telling another person how to “get free gold”…report them, and make yourself feel a little bit better.

5 Minute Instant Building

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Often, when a player is new to Evony, he/she gets confused on how some buildings can be under 5 minutes, yet he/she cannot instantly construct that building. The reason for this is that the 5 minute instant build is based off of the “base time” it takes to construct a building. Sometimes, you may be able to construct a building in under 5 minutes, or even under 4 minutes. This is because you have a castellan with at least decent politics. If you have a castellan in your city that has any politics stat, the build times are faster (the higher, the faster). In addition, if you have any construction technology, the build times are faster. That 5 minute speed up only works with buildings whose “original time” is under 5 minutes, not your upgraded time.

Ironmine

Quarry

UMGE

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

UMGE stands for Universal Multiplayer Game Entertainment. UMGE is a Chinese based company that develops online multiplayer games. China is notably the world’s most successful multiplayer game market. Thanks to the demanding gamers’ quick feedback, China has been the perfect place to make innovative game developers, which in turn breeds revolutionary design and game play.

Founded by an elite group of avid mainland China game developers, UMGE grows organically through developing engaging, albeit relatively low budget, web-based browser MMOG games: Evony and Leuric.

Evony is multiplayer role playing browser game, and the background is set in medieval Europe. Players develop their own cities by training troops, researching technologies, consolidating fortification systems, and so on. Players climb up the nobility ladder by storming the continent. There are eight human forces: Worker, Warrior, Scout, Pikeman, Swordsman, Cavalry and Cataphract; and four machinery forces: Transporter, Ballista, Battering Ram and Catapult. Besides, the technologies family adds additional tweaks to the gameplay. They are all critical to winning. More than five thousand words of well-researched history of the fortifications and the progress of technology put the gameplay into context.

Leuric is a multiplayer role playing Flash browser game, in which members of the two factions, Viking and Atlantian fight against each other in the ultimate battle for supremacy. Players can choose to adventure the vast lands of Leuric or fight against other players in the battle arena. There are over 600 types of weapons and items to choose from, and they are all customizable to the character skills, making each character unique.

In addition, UMGE is investing substantially in developing Surge of Valor, a Window client-application-based MMOG. Surge of Valor takes a player into a world of fantasy to experience adventure and to fight monsters. There are four basic character classes: Warrior, Mage, Archer and Cleric join hands to defend Continent Aldema against the invasion of demons and evil forces. With new contents and features being introduced regularly, Surge of Valor is going to be an A-list MMORPG title.
