    Hello,

    To conquer cities, you must make revolts, and after send the Colony Ships (CS)!

    All informations are here.

    Pricilla's guide states (third paragraph) that Alpha is a Conquest world and that we should not use her guide here.

    Does anyone know for sure what type of world we are on.

    Alpha settings are in a couple of places, but...

    Created: June 19, 2012

    Settings: Speed - 2; Alliance Limit - 100; Beginners Protection - 5 days; Revolt; Morale

    Alpha on .EN may have been Conquest which is likely what they were referring to.

    Yes Daedalus is right, sorry should've mentioned. The thread has been locked or else I would've got it and slightly edited it.

    This is a Revolt world. What this means is you must Revolt a city first
    after 12 hours of revolt you can do Conquest to the City
    The City must stay in your control another 12 before you have actually Captured it.

    The Basic sequence of events are these:
    You must Research: Colony Ship and Conquest

    when you have those
    1 - send a Task Force to Revolt the City (select Revolt instead of Attack)
    2 - Send a CS Task Force to Conquer the city (you must select Attack)
    --- The CS Task Force must arrive Not Earlier than +01 seconds after the Revolt is started.
    ---- It is recommended that the CS Task Force should arrive no earlier than +10 seconds after your revolt (at least till you become more experienced).
    ---- You have to Hold the city with your task force for another 12:00:00 before it is really your.

    That is a very basic overview of conquering a city in US1-Alpha

    A lot more detailed information can be found in the Guides.

    Note: Zenima (or you other experts) - Have I gotten this basically correct

    Edited for corrections -- (grasshopper bows to Master) :)

    There is no such research called Revolt, though there is one called Conquest, which is what you need to research, along with Colony Ship. Otherwise, it's basically as Night Watch said, except he tacked on what you have to do in Beta for some reason. I
    n Revolt worlds, you do not have to hold the city for x hours before it's truly yours, once the CS lands (after a 12 hour gap between the revolt attack and the CS attack), it's yours.

    In Conquest worlds, you do not have to wait 12 hours to send the CS, but you must hold the city against attacks without losing all of either your land troops or naval ships for x hours.
