Hi everyone, I'm currently doing pretty well in my dom vic. However the more I take capitals and cities, the more gold per turn I lose and also the more happiness. On happiness, I started with 15, then as I began doing battle, the happiness dropped to -18. Here's my numbers: 27 from number of cities 34 from population 24 from population of puppet cities 15 from specialist Can I delete anything here?? On gold, I have 2038 gold but -48 gpt. Here's those numbers: 97 on unit maintenance 105 on building maintenance 23 on tile improvements I had positive numbers before I started warring. But my question now is, can I delete or change any of these negative factors, and get back in the black? I really have no business playing this game...it's too complex. Yet I keep on trying. Thanks for any help.
