    I'm glad you like it. If you sell your non boosted factories, you'll have plenty of room to shuffle things around.

    I also second using elvenstats.com to import your city into elvenarchitect. Those are my two most used sites for gameplay info or remodeling.

    I've been building to be a self sufficient and just consider the growing costs to clear provnces part of doing business, planning ahead for level 4 is where I figured I could boost my fighting skills after setting up my resources in 3 .. then if I start getting fellowship members with different boosts I can refigure then but my style is to self supply as much possible

    Currently I have 470 provinces...
    Once you hit chapter 11 every province helps you for divine seed production.

    Keep in mind that a person in chapter 13 has much more efficient factories so your production scales a lot along with the costs. I know for myself I have lots of goods stockpiled (over 1mil of each) plus a mountain of MM spells from tournaments so I can boost my manufacturing at will.

    Just getting your boosted production close to the maximum will help you a lot even with lower level factories.

    To me, 'over-scouting' only applies if I'm not actually capable of clearing out the newly scouted provinces == especially if hitting ring 11 or so when orc heads are necessary but one can't yet make them with armories or other means yet. The advantages of the expansion plots for my city far outweigh the added negotiation costs for those additional provinces, since it is a rare hard / very hard fight I can win yet -- my combat skills aren't quite up to snuff.

    Extra bonus ... more provinces scouted / cleared = more potential tourney provinces available each week.
    I started to skip optional squad size tech when I learned that it had a negative impact to my tourney potential.
    Being mainly a producer and not a fighter until mid Fairy chapter, this approach worked well for me = in addition to taking advantage of a couple 100% diamond promos for builder / magic academy and then diamond expansion plots.

    Getting boosted good production bonus to max levels as soon as possible helped me more than any other single thing within the game -- the excellent advice, tips, tactics and thought provoking strategy approaches from the forum community is a class all its own.

    I think opinions on "over-scouted" have a lot more to do with whether you think it is a pejorative or just a condition that causes some provinces to cost a little more. I'm over scouted, I just don't care.

    well that all does make sense lol.. i guess it is really hard to have a best way to do things here lol..so many different opions seem to be great options.. i guess it does really come down to playing style.. i wish i had known about the squad size and tourny relation thing before this lol
    thanks again
