Zandrok

Zandrok is a web-RTS set in a distinctive future in which players from all around the world engage in trade, espionage, war and diplomacy.

Economy

In order to expand and support your growing army, you will need a strong economic backbone. There are three economic resources: Money, Population and Power.

Money
Money allows you to pay for buildings, military units, research and espionage. Money is made from your factories and trade routes. You can build factories in the construction window. A factory will cost you money to pay for it to be built, 40 population which will work in the market and 1 spare unit of power. In addition to factories, money can also be made from trade.

Population
Population represents the citizens of your empire. You can make use of them by paying to have them trained as military units or spies, or constructing buildings in which they can work. Your population will increase by itself. Your base population growth is 10 per hour. The rate at which your population increase is dependent on how much population you have, for example, having 200 population will make your population increase faster than if you have 20 (the rate at which your population increase is 5% of your current population). Your population has a limit, determined by the number of bio-domes you have. Each bio-dome costs 200 money, 5 population and require a supply of 1 power.

Power
Power is essential in keeping your buildings operating. Each power plant supplies 10 power. Both factories and bio-domes require a supply of 1 power. If you do not have a large enough power supply for your buildings, some will become disabled. In order to get them back online, you should build more power plants.

Trade
As an additional way to make money, you have the ability to establish trade routes with other players. These can be proposed in the players window and require the other player's approval for the trade route to be established. Both players have a maximum number of trade routes (starting at 1) which can be increased by selecting yourself in the players window and going to the trade tab. The amount of money you make from a trade route is determined by how much trade the other player is part of.

Espionage

To aid in your relations with other players, your spies provide you with the ability to see information about other players. Once you have some spies, you can see this information by selecting other players in the Players window.

In addition to this, your spies will aid your interceptors by alerting them to incoming attacks and giving them a bonus in combat if you have sufficiently more spies than the player who is attacking you.

Finally, your spies can be sent on infiltration missions in the Players window to hamper your enemies and steal their resources. Depending on how many spies you send, you will have a chance that a player you infiltrate will not know who launched the infiltration.

Government

It's not just you in Zandrok, and your interactions with other players are important. In order to co-ordinate your efforts, there are two different levels of power who both have a say in how your empire runs.

In your region, you will have a region leader, who is elected by receiving the majority of votes from all of the players in your region. The leader of your region has the power to declare wars on other regions, decreasing your costs to attack players in another region but hampering trade. They can also propose or agree to alliances with other regions, granting you increased trade with those regions but increasing your cost to attack players in them.

Your galaxy will also have a leader who will be elected from any of the region leaders in your galaxy. Anyone in your galaxy can vote for galactic leaders and their proposals. The galaxy leader proposes the tax rate for your galaxy, as well as what the money from tax should be spent on and the cost of attacking someone in an allied region.
