Boats v Capitals

#1 Posted by eccentrix (1614 posts) -

I'm using my ocean ships (forgotten what they're called) to attack London, but when it gets down to the final hit, no damage is done. Do I need land units over there to take over?

Yes you do. Ships act like siege weapons that can make it easier for your land units to capture but that's it.

Yeah, need to land a land unit to take over. 
Ships just do damage. 
 
Somehow though, the Helicoptor gunships can take cities, even though it says they can't. 
 
Also, i believe you're using frigates, ironclads,destroyers or battleships. Or maybe a caravel. No clue why you'd do that though.

Darn. I don't think the ships will last long enough for me to get any units all the way over there. Oh well, I guess I'll just accept her peace treaty next time she offers.

If go to her and sign a peace treaty you should be able to demand the city and a nice chunk of gold.

@Gav47: She's already offering practically everything she has. I tried getting a city, but she wouldn't budge. I can't get London because it's her capital.
 
@Shirogane:
And yeah, it's the caravel.

Battleships and destroyers are so overpowered, I'm always taking over a city in 2-3 turns using 1 or 2.
