The Left Hand of loki
One day, King loki is bored and feels an end is near, so he summons his son, the Prince, and begins to speak, "I must right a grave error on my part. Please, accompany me on a military campaign." The Prince agrees as he is prepared for war and to fight.
King loki seems calmly resolute and speaks again, "this name, loki, is no longer me. I represented Loki in life to survive, for I have had to live in the face of fear and hostility. I must not only stand my ground, but I must aggressively attack to the point of having to kill or be killed, but I have been hurt, and I am damaged. Now, I just want to be left alone to be myself whomever I am."
"Let me tell you a story. My Kingdom and future Empire began in the middle of a war with lesser kingdoms on one side and great Empires on the other."
"This is my last act of loki. Great Empires they may be, but only because they are such cowards. If you play in my game by my rules, you will be threatened and attacked. My ideal game happens after many years have past when the Fryhtan lairs start to multiply, and the Fryhtans start to attack villages. My ideal game is a struggle for scarce resources and constant war with other Kingdoms and Empires. My ideal game is a struggle to survive."
Prepare to be hated. Prepare to be betrayed. Prepare to be attacked. Beware of the pang in your heart and the tears that fall upon your breast. Choose for yourself -- with which hand you want to rule, the right or left. Sometimes a healthy heart and long life is greater than absolute power and freedom. I defer to the lessons on sportsmanship by Amarok in chapter 8.2.2 Behaviors
As soon as other kingdoms begin to ask for trade treaties, open the diplomacy window as request a trade with all of them. Repeat this with friendly treaties and alliance treaties until you are allied with everyone. If a kingdoms terminates an alliance or friendly treaty, request one right away. You will be attacked soon by multiple kingdoms soon. Some kingdoms will reject your proposals. Keep asking until they accept.
There are two ways you can play: trade with kingdoms or never trade with anyone (maybe one or two) and constantly be at war. The latter is preferable as it saves having to damage reputation to destroy a nation.
if( plant_count > plant_limit )
in OW_PLANT.cpp at lines 100-101 to stop plant_limit for World::plant_reprod
Same for World::plant_spread at lines 209-210
Increase probability of spread at line 214.by changing 1000 to 1
Increase probability of grow at lines 81
tempEffect - speeds up growth, but everything can be covered in plants and lags the game
