    Howdy ya'll!

    The name is General Life (aka GL, Gen, Life, Gen Life, and Dude), been playing on O as my main (and really only) world since December 15th 2015. Since moving from Stone Age->BA, and BA->IA, I have been a relatively complacent fellow. I have spent almost a year in IA, and it has been a blast! Currently GB wise I have: Zeus, Babel, LoA, Hagia, CoA, Marks, Basil, CDM, Traz, Chateau, Cape, Inno, Dynamic, Voyager, Rain Forest, Arc, Gaea, Orangery, Vault, ToR, and Observatory.

    After making a spreadsheet for my original plan, (to stick in IA and do the entire tech tree in one day) I quickly realized that I would have to buy ALOT of promethium with diamonds, and as this game isn't worth 37k diamonds to me, I decided to scrap it. That being said I was advised on a new course of action, and therefore I unveil my new plan!

    ONE AGE PER MONTH!

    Basically, every month on the 15th I will advance one age, all the way through the end of the tech tree. A pace of one age per month shouldn't be too hard until I hit FE and AF, so I shouldn't have too much trouble for almost a year (At which point the system breaks down because of promethium once again xD) :)

    I will post a new post (totally proper english xD) every time I age up with my stats (if I can figure out how to attach a spreadsheet that would be ideal, if I can't I'll probably post a link to another spreadsheet online), and occasionally other posts as I see fit :)

    Author's note: This thread is really just for my own use to keep track of my progress, but if you want to comment in the designated thread I will reply ;)

    Because I don't want to keep posting this everywhere, this is a complete list of all the prizes I have gotten from my Seed Vault, I will continue to update it daily:
    [​IMG]
    For comparison, WW in IA gives: 1080 coins, 1080 supplies, 2fps, 50 diamonds, 3 medals, or 10 of one type of good.
    Got it up in IA on EN14, day one of rewards:

    2 of each IA good (1)
    3 medals (3)

    The percentage seems pretty spot on, 204 ppl aided, 4 prizes.

    IA, EN14 Day 2:
    2 of each IA good (2)
    1080 supplies (3)

    IA, EN14 Day 3:
    2 of each IA good (2)
    1080 supplies (1)

    IA, EN14 Day 4:
    2 of each IA good (1)
    1080 coins (1)
    1080 supplies (2)

    EMA, EN14 Day 5:
    2 of each EMA good (2)
    1800 supplies (2)
    1800 coins (2)
    5 medals (1)

    EMA, EN14 Day 6:
    1800 supplies (1)
    5 medals (1)
    2 of each EMA good (2)

    EMA, EN14 Day 7: I fell asleep and didn't finish aiding xD
    2 of each EMA good (2)
    5 medals (1)

    EMA, EN14 Day 8:
    5 medals (1)
    1800 coins (2)

    EMA, EN14 Day 9:
    2 of each EMA good (2)

    EMA, EN14 Day 10:
    2 of each EMA good (1)
    1800 coins (1)
    1800 supplies (2)

    EMA, EN14 Day 11:
    2 of each EMA good (1)
    1800 coins (1)
    1800 supplies (2)

    EMA, EN14 Day 12:
    2 of each EMA good (1)
    50 Diamonds! (1)

    EMA, EN14 Day 13:
    2 of each EMA good (5)
    1800 coins (2)

    EMA, EN14 Day 14:
    2 of each EMA good (2)

    3.857 prizes per day for two weeks, at about 200 aids that's pretty spot on. The percentage holds.

    I would totally recommend this gb to anyone as the rewards make it about 5 WWs in the space of 3. 4 prizes @ 200 aids + 20k supplies per day you could easily count as one more WW equivalent-at any age.

    Tonight is my last night in IA.
    (for all you non-forum people, stuff that's highlighted in yellow is a link to an external source you should click on ;))

    I honestly knew I would say that line, but not this soon. I had always planned to leave IA, my inventory was set up for a massive tech jump to AF complete with HoFs, reno kits, Champs retreats and the like. But I had never planned to leave like this, one age at a time. The adventure begins tomorrow at my collection as I still have some IA techs left :)
    [​IMG]

    Wow, my adventure truly begins tomorrow. Up until now almost all I have known is combat and building up gbs in IA, I'm nervous, excited and wary all at once for what tomorrow brings! One thing is for certain though, my guild won't know what hit them when I show up in their event history tomorrow ;)

    To all those that have supported me, loathed me, and just learned to like me, this goes out to you :) The only way I was able to accomplish what I did on the map, on building gbs was all because you believed in me. This is not the end, it's only the beginning as I take on new and exciting challenges with you by my side :)

    One last shout out to TKT on EN14: LONG LIVE THE IRON AGE!

    The iron age was the greatest era in History! Tho is not called the Iron Age in real history
    HOW ON EARTH DID YOU GET SO MUCH SPACE? I mean in Iron Age you can barely get that much space.

    there is also the player continent map, you can go through that beyond your current age and pickup expansions

    and probably a couple of diamond expansions as well.

    (Actually to be fair I saw this on the forum and I was like, wow that's just AWESOME! [Tiny Town])
    (Also 40 of the diamonds pictured were from a quest on this world {D}-will be keeping track so I can spend them on that last dang bp haha)
