The Utopian Genesis server is a unique new server in the Swirve.com Network and serves as a sort of testing ground for Utopia development. The Genesis Server for the age beginning in February 2004 is based on Utopia: The Revolution and has the following unique rule additions:

- There are no Island Distance penalties.
- Kingdoms are limited to 20 players.
- Less action is required to start war.
- Networth is only shown for provinces over $100,000.
- Provinces cannot reset themselves before the game starts.

- No elite conversions from battle; no increased elite losses.
- Player votes for monarch are anonymous.
- The Dwarf & Warrior military maintenance bonuses will be 15% instead of 25%.
- Ambush Attack defends at 70% of normal strength instead of 80%.
- Conquests can now be done on any player within 15% of your size instead of 5%.
- Relative kingdom size affects gains on attacks to a small extent.
- The 6/0, 0/6 Specialists bonuses for certain types of attacks are not in effect.

- The military system has been changed. The unit strengths, costs, and maintenance are as follows:

Defender23$250$0.5 / Unit
Attacker54$600$2 / Unit
Elite***$6 / Unit

Elite strength & cost are the same as the normal servers.

- Money can now be invested on a daily basis in your land & buildings. Over time, these investments will increase the productivity of the buildings. Long-term constant investments are more effective than one-time large investments. The formulas for these may be adjusted as the round progresses, and we try to optimize this system.

Unlike our Primary Servers, the Utopian Genesis is not a continuing game. That is, when the games ends, players and kingdoms will not be transferred to a new round. You may play one account in this server in addition to an account in one of our primary gaming servers.
