Part of the 0 A.D. Gameplay Manual
This guide will introduce you to the basic concepts of 0 A.D. If you've played other RTS (Real Time Strategy) games much is going to be familiar, and you might want to read the Quickstart Guide for people who've played other RTS games.
Gather, Build, Fight
There are three things which are important to win an RTS game: gathering, building and fighting. All are needed, and they cannot be done separate from each other. To make things easier to understand in this guide they will be listed separately from each other though.
After setting up a game, and clicking on the Start game''' button, you see your first units and buildings. In most cases you will have a Civic centre, perhaps a few houses or similar, and a couple of basic units.
