Need some more powerfull IAs, this shouldn't be possible in very hard difficulty x.x
Full expansionism is too overpowered, and "expansionist" races doesn't really expand
I Crushed Kamzaks and Varaias before the year 2200...

Did you customize the races or game in any way ?
If the game is too easy you can customize the races a little.
It is also possible that the very hard difficulty was broken when difficulties were changed a few versions ago.
If this is the case, then 1 difficulty less should give you a better challenge (but would also confirm a broken difficulty level)

I only customized mine, maybe i made it too overpowered XD, if i'm just planning on crushing everyone, then i dont need diplomatics, that's why i love the 100 points of "Repulsive" *-*
i guess i'll tweak a little the other races too

Its quite possible you may have given yourself too much power.
Have you tried playing as the Tantik ?

Indeed, Inmaterial hability + transient + starting with terraform + strong economy is too much power
First, with my template, i want to win a game with every playable race, just to see the win text :3
I already did Humans, Barbecks, Tantik, and now i'm going barsig
I played tantiks, but not with their default template, i'll give it a try

PD: Is there any way to play as Kor'thaz, Har'kan and Varaian?

This is suppose to be made available in a future update if I am not mistaken, but there may be a way to possibly do it with the current version. I will send you the details in a pm.

Technically it is very easy to enable them through modding (since it allows all 11 races to be set playable) but they are missing a few assets (like custom winning text is not defined etc).

Can you post specific instructions on this Zaimat? I have a hunch on how to do this but wanted to make sure I was correct.

After reviewing the code it seems the setting hasn't been exposed yet to modding via the race xml templates. Should be in there with the upcoming update pretty soon.

IISunaII regarding Balance
I think you are still playing pre 1.0.0.88 (the major AI/Balance patch) ? There is quite a bit of difference after that patch..
