Atlantis has a diverse surface, which has wildernesses, like lakes, savannas, forests, hills, mountains, plains and swamps. In addition, there are urbanized areas: cities, outposts and Anthropus camps.
The main geological features of Atlantis are mountains, hills and plains. Mountains are used to acquire ore (aka Metal) which is necessary for construction. Hills are used to acquire stone. The other areas are plains. These are desert areas from where nothing is extracted and where outposts are built.
Atlantis only has lakes and swamps. Lakes are used to acquire food and boost food production. Swamps are locations that can house cities (via Warp Devices).
In Atlantis there are vast forests and savannas. In forests, people acquire lumber. In savannas, people acquire food.
ALL WILDERNESSES house Anthropus. Always send enough troops to clear them out & gain the resources and Elite troop items in certain wildernesses.
Under unique circumstances, a player may receive a message when they attack a certain location. These messages include: Zolmec Temples, Ancient Forests, Ice Caves, Great Deserts.
