How do I take over a city?????
I have attacked 3 cities and all I got was lost men and about 100 resource but I did not own the city. Why????? Is there something I need to be doing?????
To conquer cities, you must make revolts, and after send the Colony Ships (CS)!
All informations are here.
Pricilla's guide states (third paragraph) that Alpha is a Conquest world and that we should not use her guide here.

Alpha settings are in a couple of places, but...

Alpha on .EN may have been Conquest which is likely what they were referring to.
Ah, Thank you Daedalus The Speedy
Quick as every with the information we need.
Yes Daedalus is right, sorry should've mentioned. The thread has been locked or else I would've got it and slightly edited it.
so we are on a revolt but no conquest? or conquest but no revolt? im a little confused i can research conquest but i have no revolt shown that i can research
This is a Revolt world. What this means is you must Revolt a city first

The City must stay in your control another 12 before you have actually Captured it.
The Basic sequence of events are these:
You must Research: Colony Ship and Conquest
when you have those
1 - send a Task Force to Revolt the City (select Revolt instead of Attack)
2 - Send a CS Task Force to Conquer the city (you must select Attack)
--- The CS Task Force must arrive Not Earlier than +01 seconds after the Revolt is started.
---- It is recommended that the CS Task Force should arrive no earlier than +10 seconds after your revolt (at least till you become more experienced).
---- You have to Hold the city with your task force for another 12:00:00 before it is really your.
That is a very basic overview of conquering a city in US1-Alpha
A lot more detailed information can be found in the Guides.
Note: Zenima (or you other experts) - Have I gotten this basically correct
