    Default ghost cities...

    Can be conquered a ghost city?

    It is necessary to have a colony ship?

    The points remain teh same after the conquest?

    If raided frequently for resources the points become less. Are they becoming zero after some time? Are the resources become less?

    Yes, you can conquer a ghost town and yes you need a CS. You conquer them exactly the same way as you would conquer a player. The only exception with this is in a Revolt world where you do not need to have Conquest researched and you don't need to revolt it to conquer a ghost town. Just make sure you send your CS as a regular attack.

    Ghost Towns lose points over time, this is because they periodically lose a building level until they disappear entirely. However, if you conquer it the points will stop decreasing.

    Yes, ghost cities can be conquered. They do need a Colony Ship, but the difference to normal cities is that on a Revolt world you do not need Conquest researched, to conquer a ghost city.

    Points of a ghost city remain the same after a conquest. Over time, however, a ghost city 'degrades' and loses building levels. If a ghost city is not conquered it will eventually completely degrade and disappear.

    Resources are raided from a ghost city in the same way as from regular cities, and they regenerate just the same as they do in regular cities. If you raid resources faster than they regenerate, there will not be resources there.

    Worlds are either Revolt or Conquest - this determines the method you use when conquering a city. The easiest way to find out the settings of your world is to scroll to your world on the main page of the forum and it will have the details listed.

    There are only two categories, 'Conquest' or 'Revolt'. The easiest way to see which your world is, is to look at the Forum section for it.. This screenshot shows where the settings are;

    Am I reading this right? Meaning in a revolt world you only need to get to the Colony ship in order to be able to conquer another player?

    Not quite. In a Revolt world, ghost cities can be conquered without needing to have Conquest researched. You still need it researched in order to revolt and conquer other players, though.

    Thanks, and how long does it take a town to become a ghost town. For example a 175 point town.

    A city generally ghosts 14 days after its owner becomes inactive. This time can vary depending on whether or not the account has gold on it. Cities also ghost when their owner chooses to restart the account.

    If you're thinking of conquering a 175 point city though, don't. Colonizing a new city gives 750 points, so conquering anything below that is not worth it. :-)
