    Your tech looks really low to me, only 29 weapons is to low, and with 147 warfare, the chance of you making a missile are also not good. From what i see so far, there is no point in researching acgricultural or residential. I could be wrong

    Ok see somewhere I read that it was pointless for me to research because of tech points or something...

    So I'm guessing they were wrong and I DO need to research on my own? What should I focus on?

    More industrial complexes than Military bases are better imo, need tanks!

    Ok, you have over 2 million cash, and you're raking in about 20k per turn.

    First thing, buy up some tanks. Keep 100k for construction.

    That green skull you can't do much about in your current state, just take turns as normal, it'll go away eventually. (For future reference, your Medical Tech helps to determine how quickly the disease is cured.)

    Unused Land - 4? Do some exploring. Exploring not only gets you more land, but you get money, and you build troops.tanks/etc as normal. Also, it brings in lots of civilians to counter act the disease thats spreading.

    I would hold off on attacking people untill you have 25k+ of each unit type. Just build as you normally would.

    Researching tech is not very efficent when you're new. Don't spend too many turns researching untill you have 500+ research buildings. Before then, read the boards, and watch for who we are spying on to get tech. Make sure you have plenty of spys, and follow our lead.

    I find building two Construction sites per day is plenty. For a while you'll reach a plateu where your land intake isn't enough to justify more construction yards.

    Personally, i can build about 30 buildings per turn, and thats plenty concidering the ammount of land I get from attacks. You should try to get to where you can make 20-25 per turn at your level. And make sure you get more in taxes per turn than you spend on building. If you're not, stop making Construction yards :p

    Hope that helps :)
