Ok now its going to get a little easier and you will get into a rythem. You are basically going to do the same thing over and over again until about 1007 except for one thing.

If you have noticed you now have explorers out every month for 6 months since dont have horses, do not build stables until your explorers use 225 per explorer. Now you have to think of your empire like a snowball going down hill. Each year you will get more explorers and each year you will get bigger.

Jan 1002
Iron mines and wood cutters you are going to build every turn for the rest of your life.

From this point on until 1005 I like to send 3 batches of explorers for all land and 3 batches for plains. still 6 batches for each month I can send them, just not all for all land any longer.

send explorers out for plains.

You will send out explorers every month for a long time.

build 10 mage towers ( these till be last ones you build until 1005) Set research on food production at this time.

end turn

Feb 1002
you might have a few mage towers left to build..levae them and make sure to build them this turn.

soe for plains

Farms

Now you will do nothing more during these months Feb through Aug every year for the rest of protection than these 4 things.

Iron mines
woodcutters
Farms
send out explorers for whatever land you choose.


Sept 1002( again each thing you do for next 3 years until 1005 you will do same thing)

Jan 1003 ( I use jan as my wildcard month build houses,warehouses,markets, etc whatever I need at time) You are also going to have to watch your pop and food from here on out.

Do exactly what you did except for build mage towers wont build them for awhile.
I also use january to adjust my local trade to get more money. Sale food from here on out. Will need that wood.
Also try to get about 75-100 more toolmakers during this time..you choose months.

Rinse and repeat for next 3 years stop at Jan 1005 and you will change just a little bit.


Jan 1005

Now you want to explore mainly plains. Out of 6 sets of explorers send 5 or even 6 for plains..if you send 1 for other always send for all land. This is what you will explore for Jap all the way out.

Do the same thing you have been doing for last 3 years from Jan to Aug for rest of protection run. Just get in nice cycle. Make sure you are watching what you sell on auto trade every january and you are increasing economy because you are going to need more money now.

Now in sept and oct for the rest of pro I like to use these months to build mage towers. Mage towers are how I will get more research and now Im a bit bigger and can afford their cost.
Your research in pro for a Jap and this is an explore Jap.
50 food
25 explorers
then switch back to food if you get over 75 rsls in pro.

So for now until you get to 225 per explorer you will do this.

Jan of 1005 till around Jan 1011-1013 depending on your ability to explore.

Jan.

Nov and Dec

max towncenters ( make sure you are building more toolmakers to build enough town centers)

Now at about 225 food per explorer you will start to build stables. Build enough stables so you have enough horse to send out all explorers for a year.

If you have 6000 explorers you will need 18000 horses so you will need about 1500 stables. and so forth.

One thing I like to do is to bring all my explorers when I start to make horses and send out all my explorers every sept. This way I dont have to keep sending explorers every month and I can just send them all out in 12 different batches one time a year. Its lazy but who cares.


You will basically explore like this for the rest of the protection run.

That's Boogie's guide? Thanks. You mind telling us what scores this was hitting?

I have just one question. And because I am too lazy I have never sat down and done the maths on this. And it's also why I try to avoid farm civs...

Anyway, is it really always best to send out explorers every month? My gut says it must be best (maybe from around 1004 to the point where it's 225 food per explorer) to stock up food and send explorers out in Feb, March and April.

Obviously if you make enough food per year for e.g. 5000 explorers, it is surely better to have 5,000 explorers out from March - September at an average of 1.15*basic formula, than it is to have them out 2,500 all year at 1*basic formula.

Of course this is a 15% increase, which will be partly offset by needing increased space, increased town centres. But I'm pretty certain there will be an 8-10 year period where it is best to only send out in March....
