It’s only been a matter of days since Brave New World came out and the Indonesian civilization was added, so a preferred strategy using them hasn’t really been developed yet. However, considering their UA, UU, and UB, they seem to lean towards being a wide, conquering empire.
Their UA gives free resources for the first three cities settled overseas, effectively making them free to found happiness-wise. Their UB helps boost the faith output of the Indonesians which can be used to accumulate the happiness needed for a large empire.
The Kris Swordsman also receive a free promotion, so if they are built in large numbers when they are available a powerful group of melee soldiers will be at your service through most of the game.
We’re excited to bring you our civ of the week thread. This will be the 19th of many weekly themed threads to come, each revolving around a certain civilization from within the game. The idea behind each thread is to condense information into one rich resource for all viewers, which will be achieved by posting similar material pertaining to the weekly civilization. Have an idea for future threads? Share all input, advice, and criticisms below, so we can sculpt a utopia of knowledge! Feel free to share any and all strategies, tactics, stories, hints, tricks and tips related to Indonesia.
