Just a few things to start.
1. Set taxes to 15%.
2. Get industrial up! I'd say playing as a user you should get your industrial up to about 150 as soon as possible in the round.

Note - it's been ages since I played as a user.

put it at like 180-190 with 165 lands you should be good for the rest of the round and not be in need of money. get to 80 agri 80 ref and your tech alliance will do the rest.

do you have tech alliance?

Yo! As others have said, get some industrial points. It increases your money per turn and is extremely useful to users.

I normally get around 150 land until near the end of the round where I increase it to 199ish. Don't know if it's too little or w/e, seems to work alright..

Anyways, Sal has a guide he wrote back then shown here: http://www.freewebs.com/salisagod. Not sure how out of date it is, but should give you some tips.

Seems most have been pointed out for ya but ill recap and add lol

1. Set tax rate to 15%
2. 150-199 land would be ideal for income
3. Research industrial heavily at beginning till roughly the middle
4. Do NOT research offence and defence as a user till last 7-10 days, hurts your income
5. Find 3 good tech allies, they give you 1/4th of their researches
6. Research in 4's gives your techies 1 for ever 4 you do ie 4 or 8 at a time

max land, ind, mil, agr, ref, off/def up to a max total of 50 up to day 15
stop agr/ref at 100 or thereabouts depending on your skill and land

dont have troops on esp guerillas/tanks

dont get: esp, weaps (unless desperate), med

res: get if not just to make things simpler

Oracle... I'm kind of confused.. No weaps?

Before last 10 or so days, isn't weapons the best after military in terms of tech? (non vip) Even if it's just slightly above industrial... I seem to have way too much money if I just mass industrial and it's easy to get taken advantage of at the end =O

you'll do 0 weaps if you can manage your money lol

if you're giving money to people, you might end up with like 150 weaps, but otherwise having 150 land and ind will be enough for pure off/def/mil after day 15 if you're not attacked

the best user end of round is pure off/def/mil with like 150 ind, low agri/ref, enough land to not be a target but high

thus you can say the game is about money management, teching discipline and not being killed lol

I must be terrible at managing my money then =)

So, you seem to post on these forums a lot. Why don't you stop being a lurker and play a round? hehe
