Hello, I'm very new to the game and I have a question regarding this map. I'm stuck with reaching the last artifact. Here is a screenshot of the last artifact I need to recover (in the red circle):

I can't build any more buildings to expand my borders because there are no available spaces for them. There is a spot where I can build a fortress (yellow circle), but its area of influence is not enough to get to the artifact. Can you please give me some advice? I apologize if my question is rather dumb, but, as I said, I'm just a newbie face-tongue.png I would really like to finish this mission, and I like this map so much. Thank you for your time!

Clear the piles of stones north of the mine you can build along the coast.

I've tried that already, but the problem is that area of influence of a stoneworker isn't enough to reach these piles. I already tried to build a stoneworker's hut where the yellow building spots are.

Hi,
welcome to the forum.

A quarry in the north directly at the shores should clear the stones. if not please provide a savegame so we can evaluate. Generally spoken it is recomendable to state the version of the game you use to help with troubleshooting.

Thank you. My game version is build-21(Release). So I tried to build 3 quarries at the north for the sake of experiment, and all of them can't reach the stone piles:

Their influence touches just the very edge of the stones, like this:

And here is my savegame file:

Thank you again.

Sorry, I just noticed that the links won't open because of privacy settings. I changed the settings and now it should be possible to open all the links.

Hint: You can enhance fortresses to castles which have +1 radius. If an Artifact is on the edge of the territory it is yours. Does that help? : )

Ok here is the solution. if you build a castle in the south (yellow mark in the first screenshot) this will conquer enough land to get 2 small building plots near the artifact.
alternatively you will see a big building plot in the north if you fell the trees there which can conquer a small plot north of the artifact as well.

Thanks, now I know that I can upgrade fortresses, too. Unfortunately, the castle's radius was still not enough. So I did what hessenfarmer suggested: I cut the trees in the north, which gave me a green building spot in there, and I built a fortress. Which in turn gave me a small red building spot near the artifact. Then I built a soldier's hut there and it got me to the artifact. I have completed this mission and can move on to the next face-smile.png Thank you, everyone!

You're welcome! I thought that the "Yellow Castle" alone would do the trick. Miscounting the radius is easy if there are heights...
