9. Goldmark & High Command

GOLDMARK

Goldmark is the premium currency in Supremacy 1914 which can be obtained by completing the turorial, by winning game rounds and by purchasing it via the in-game shop. You can play very succesfully without Goldmark, but employing it strategically may be the deciding factor for a victory. Goldmark can be put to different uses: it allows you to speed up recruitment and construction, influence the morale of own or enemy troops and provinces, or purchase other resources.

GOLD ROUNDS

Some game options are so-called gold features, which add additional customization options and strategic variety to your games rounds. If either combination of gold features is selected (one or many), the creation will subtract 5,000 Goldmark from your account. The same amount will be subtracted from all players who are joining this game round. Joining and creating gold feature rounds is free for Members of the High Command (premium account, see Chapter 8 "Goldmark and Premium").

You can choose whether players are supposed to play individually or as teams. Choose "No Teams" if you want all players to play individually. Choose "Free Teams" to decide on the composition of your teams yourselves and to choose the number of teams playing in the game. Choose "Scenario Teams" for teams with a preset historic situation depending on the chosen map. Betrayal among team members is not possible, because they cannot attack each other. Members of the same team always have at least right of way.

Here you can decide how the gold round should end. In the standard mode, a game ends when the first player has reached 50% of all available points in the game, i.e. 1,000 points. "Domination" means, the game ends when the first player has reached 75% of all available points, i.e. 1,500 points. The "Supremacy" mode only ends if one player conquers the complete map. That way he/she will earn 100% of all available points, i.e. 2,000 points.

RALLY POINTS

BUILD QUEUE

The build queue allows you to plan you construction and production in advance and to optimize the consumption of resources. Instead of immediately starting a production or construction you can add it to the global build queue. You can check all queued processes in the Province Administration. The costs of a production/construction order will not be paid before the construction begins, so you can plan ahead of time. Use the build queue list to check whether certain resources are missing.


ADVANCED FIRE CONTROL

Units normally decide on their own whether or not to attack enemies with ranged or melee attacks in Supremacy 1914. The Advanced Fire Control feature can be used to fine-tune army commands.
