Failure to Connect Nodes

Connecting to a node may fail for a number of reasons. Follow these helpful tips to connect to a node:

  • Check to make sure you have enough contribution. If you ever withdraw from a node your contribution will be returned to you.
  • Check to make sure you have all of the prerequisite nodes connected. When connecting nodes you must start at a city or capital and travel outward.  If you look at your map, you can see the thin lines that connect all of the nodes.
  • If you do not see where a node connects to, go to the node area and try to discover the nodes around it.

Example of connecting node lines:

The nodes marked with orange lines are connected, while the nodes marked with white lines are not connected yet.
