    I was under the impression that all I needed to conquer a ghost town was a colony ship, transport ships and troops to kill any remaining defense.

    But if I try to send an attack, I get this message - In order to conquer an enemy village you first need to research conquest.

    Is that right? Not sure if its a bug or i am doing something wrong.

    For a ghost town you still need to have researched Conquest. It is for Colonies(anchor points) that you do not need Conquest.

    Since it will be only your second city you do not need to raise your Cultural Points. Once you go for your third city you will have to have 3 Cultural Points.

    a) its not a revolt world so you don't get the option to start revolts
    b) even if it was a revolt world you don't need to start a revolt on ghost towns
    in both case you simple send the cs with land and naval troops

    Yes, as soon as you include a CS, the attack is labelled "City Takeover". Well, at least it should be, because hovering the mouse over the symbol currently gives you no info at all. But you can recognize that you've sent a conquest attack, when

    a.) The city you are conquering simply disappears from the map once the CS has landed
    b.) The attack symbol looks like this: [​IMG]
