How do I enable Vacation Mode? When I go to Options, and check the “Enable Vacation Mode” box, nothing happens.
- Make sure that all your planets have nothing in the queue (no ships or defenses ).
- Make sure that all your fleets are landed (there can be NO fleet activity).
- Make sure that all the buildings is finished. You cannot have ANY buildings in progress.
- Make sure that all research is finished. You cannot have ANY research being worked on.
If the above steps do not work, then go and turn all your mine production down to 0%. Sometimes this extra step is necessary.
I recently went into vacation mode, and I had to turn all my mines down first, before it would let me go into Vacation Mode.
NOTE: You do not gain ANY resources during vacation mode. Vacation Mode is a way to protect your account from attacks while your not going to be around to monitor your account.
No activity is allowed while your in vacation mode. Nobody can attack you or probe you either.
The minimum time you have to spend in vacation mode is 48 hours. So once you enable Vacation Mode, you have to wait 48 hours before you can disable it.
