Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (2022)

In this guide I will show you how to get Postmodern Era (PME) units in Industrial Age (INA)! I would consider the PME units the 2nd big milestone in your Higher Age Units adventure after the first PE units. Particularly the MG Team units you'll be able to get are AMAZING! They're a complete game changes, and will make your continent map fights much easier (and quicker). They're also great in GBG and GE, allowing you to start doing some more auto-fighting here! If you wanna see me take all the PME provinces, check out this video:

In total you will be able to get the following higher age units:

Modern Era: 7 Commando (Light), 6 MG Team (Ranged), 1 Champion (Heavy).

Continent Map Overview

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (2)

When it comes to the continent map, there are a few restrictions you need to keep in mind. There are a few different ways you can do this map that should result in getting all units, but because I did it one way I can only speak to that and will use that order in this guide. So, first of all you need to make sure you negotiate Cai Chet Nui (marked as province 1 in image) and for now negotiate at most 2 sectors of Rung Chien Dau (province 7). After that you should follow the order in the image, which will quite quickly give you the 5 MG Team. After the first province you can decide if you want to fight and/or negotiate the remaining provinces (though don't continue on Rung Chien Day (7) until after completing Rung Trai (6)).

Whenever you have completed a province you can start scouting the next one immediately, no need to wait at any point.

Postmodern Era Story Quests

Below you'll find a list of all the PME story quests in the order you get them if you follow my suggested path on the continent map.

1) Here we go! Reach the PME continent map.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (3)

2) Scout the first two provinces. Don't take any sectors yet.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (4)

3) Spend 22 FPs and gather 220k supplies.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (5)

3 Side Quest 1) At some point among the first few quests you will get a set of side quests, starting with this one. To complete it negotiate 2 sectors of each of the provinces you just scouted (but not more yet!). I believe you can abort this if you want, I don't think it is required to trigger the story quests that give MG Team, but I'm not 100% sure, so abort at your own risk. In any case, I would complete it for the diamonds anyways.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (6)

3 Side Quest 2) This you can abort if you want, or you can complete it for the random rewards.

3 Side Quest 4) Delete 4 units and spend 12 FPs. Here you get your first PME unit! It's an alright unit to fight with, though it'll soon be replaced by MG Teams :)

4) Infiltrate 2 sectors of each of the first two provinces.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (12)

5) Negotiate all remaining sectors of Cai Chet Nui (the northern province, 1 on my map overview) and aid 15 players. Don't do any more sectors of Rung Chien Dau before required by quests.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (13)

6) Scout the province north of of the province you just took, and fight / nego all sectors of it (Sot Dam Lay).

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (14)

7) Pay the supplies and complete 5 8-hour productions (in any production buildings, including "special" ones like Terrace Farms, Sleigh Builders, etc)

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (15)

8) Pay the supplies and complete 6 8-hour productions. Finally, you have your first MG Teams! These will be a game changer on the continent map and elsewhere, have fun!

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (16)

9) Infiltrate 2 sectors and Fight / Nego 3 sectors. This can be any lower age sectors, or if you have already scouted Trung Doi you can do it ther. You need 2 infiltrate 2 Trung Doi sectors later on anyways, so you might as well do it there now.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (17)

10) Pay the supplies and complete 7 8-hour productions. And here we go, you now have all the MG Team! Having 5 really helps a lot when taking provinces, much easier to take them in one go without using diamonds on healing them!

11) Scout the two provinces north of Sot Dam Lay (Trung Doi and Day Du Ao). If you infiltrated 2 sectors of Trung Doi for quest 9 the second part will be auto-completed, if not infiltrate 2 sectors.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (19)

12) Fight / Nego all sectors of Trung Doi.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (20)

19) Scout the province next to Khay Huyen Bay (Rung Trai) and infiltrate 4 sectors. If you take (Fight / Nego) all sectors the second part will be auto-completed, though if you do you will skip over the quests Take Him Down and Finish Him!. These will give 2 random rewards and 6 FPs, so up to you if you want those or not. Personally I took all sectors for this quest, so I skipped right to the quest Minh Ho-Chi:

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (27)

20) Gain 1.1k Population and Happiness. This can easily be done by buying and selling buildings, or for example by placing an event special building, those usually give both population and happiness.

21) Now you're back to the western side of the story! Fight / Nego the remaining sectors of Rung Chien Dau, and scout the next two provinces. I had already taken all sectors of Rung Chien Day when I completed the previous quest, so I might have skipped over a quest to acquire Rung Chien Dau. If that's the case, simply complete that first! Then Fight / Nego all sectors of Phuc Kich.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (29)

22) Scout the sector north of Phuc Kich (Mau Mat Dat) and Fight / Nego one sector of that province. (Start scouting the sector to the west of Phuc Kich when you've scouted Mau Mat Dat)

Skipping Contemporary Era

Due to unavoidable Tech Blockers, you have to skip the CE story quest if you want to get TE+ units. Luckily, this is quite easy to do, and you should be fine fighting through the CE map with your PME units. That said, you can fight and/or negotiate as you wish, there are no requirements for how you take the sectors. The only requirement here is to skip Salfah and Suqqah (see image below), that is very important.

Also, while you are going through the CE continent map you shouldn't do any quests. This includes story, side and recurring quests. I don't think you need to 100% adhere to this in regards to recurring quests, but I'm not sure when it's ok to them, so I would play it safe and simply ignore all types of quests while going through CE.

Postmodern Era Units in Industrial Age! — MooingCat's Forge of Empires Guides (48)

Follow this order, skipping the two provinces marked with red crosses!

Thank you very much for reading, and good luck on your own adventure! Check out my next guide on getting TE units in INA here: https://www.mooingcatguides.com/higher-age-units/te-in-ina
