    I'm playing in Omega world and last night (i.e. 9 hours ago) tried to take a ghost town by attacking with a colony ship with supporting naval and land units. An error showed that I had to have research conquest. I thought that if a ghost town was cleared (which it is) you didn't need research conquest to take it. The ghost town is diedel12's city. I looked at previous postings here and it said that. Not sure what is going on here. I'm playing in Delphi world and took a ghost town without research conquest. Am I missing something here? Thanks! By the way, I do have the culture points to take another city.

    To conquer a city which is ghost or owned by a player you need to research Conquest unless it is a revolt world, without conquest researched you can colonise a city where the little flag with the hammer on it

    That's the way it seems, but like I said, I took a ghost town in Delphi world without conquest. I have colonized before at those site with the little flag...

    Only in conquest worlds. In revolt worlds, you don't need to have it researched.

    It is required in Conquest worlds but not in Revolt worlds.
