Keep an eye on Tantiks and don't get in a war with Har'kans or Kamzaks too early.
Too late :( I've been at war with the Harkan since turn 30 and the Kamzaks since turn 50 and they are really starting to piss me off :)

Re: save during tactical combat

Instanced combat is available with the new update where combat is handled one battle at a time and ships are pulled closer when combat occurs if they are far apart. The number of rounds was increased to 50 with instanced combat enabled (which is now the default option but can be switched off). So I...

Re: Horizon receives a new major add-on/update v1.0.1.100

Thanks for another update! I can't wait for tomorrow (I can play again yay!).

Should I start a new game or will the new patch work with an existing save?

Re: save during tactical combat

It's not possible to save the game during combat. Is this with the instance combat being 50 rounds that you are finding it too long? or even at the 20 rounds without instancing? I'm not sure what instancing is. Is that when the AI controls some of my fleets? It's only 20 rounds but there are a lot ...

save during tactical combat

I'm involved in a large scale all sector war involving many taskforces. The battles are sometimes taking a long time (longer than I can usually play at one sitting). The next battle coming up is going to feature around 60 ships in the sector with enemy reinforcements on the way. Is it possible to sa...

Re: FTL Jump (idea for fleet formation)

I like the idea of Jump Engines but we want a system where ships can be intercepted while moving otherwise it will remove an important strategic element. To allow that, the way I imagine it we would really need to have (and show/fight in) hyperspace travel as well as normal space. That's really not...

Re: Setting up custom games

I thought I just got lucky that the Tantik were on the other side of known space. Are the home planets of all the races in the same galactic location every game or is that randomly determined at launch? The Tantik are a huge threat in my current game but their homeworld is in sector 6. They currentl...

Owning 3/4 of the galaxy and being in war with the Varaians who had only 1 planet left, they came to me asking for me to surrender to them. It just made me smile and you probably guess my answer :twisted:
Was it "I welcome my new Varaians overlords"? :)

Re: Hard time finishing the game

When I find a planet with the scientist you mention, I usually have a dialogue screen pop up where he tells me to find two things for a weapons against the Varians. It used to be so you had to dig the planet to talk to the guy. Have you checked the mission log to see if it has a mission telling you...

Re: Setting up custom games

Thanks for posting this. After I finish my game on normal mode I'm going to give classic a try.

I like the way normal mode feels like a living galaxy but I've spent a lot of turns defending my small empire and kissing the asses of the stronger races. I'd like to try a more even footing next time.

Re: Tantik are way too overpowered

Ok so been playing this game for months now. Have downloaded the latest version as of 19.5.2014. The Tantik are WAY TOO STRONG, even on easy difficulty they are much too strong. They have 25 ships plus motherships when i only have 5 ships at most. This happens 5 games in a row and as said, i have b...

Re: The Gargals are a persistent bunch...

That sounds awesome. I have androids but haven't found star gates or transporters yet. I just entered research treaties with the Kuntari and Barsiq (sp?) so with luck one of them will get them for me. I haven't had many opportunities to dig yet because I'm playing normal mode and almost everything h...

Re: The Gargals are a persistent bunch...

Many many things are possible in classic mode. The mission mode gives you a good feel of the game, but classic mode is where you can put what you have learned to good use. Never forget to do digs on planets because there is a lot of tech out there for the taking ;) When you survey a planet and it f...

Re: The Gargals are a persistent bunch...

Thanks for the replies. I was confused by the Gargals behavior. As near as I can tell they have 2 agricultural worlds each protected by a space station, 2 motherships, barracks, missiles, and about 150,000 soldiers. I don't have enough troops to just invade so will have to bomb them for a while befo...

The Gargals are a persistent bunch...

I'm playing on normal mode and difficulty. I finally have enough ships and credits to mount an offensive. The Gargals declared war on me due to my treaties with the Kuntari. They attacked one of my colonies and although they destroyed most of my fleets and star bases in the sector their losses overa...

Re: Best Game Ever

Thanks for the answer! I'm playing my first game so started out on normal difficulty in normal mode. Everyone hates me and I'm pretty excited to be generating about 13bc a turn. I have very few colonies because most of the galaxy was already colonized by turn 5.

Re: Best Game Ever

How did you get so many alliances? Everyone hates me. I have few ships, few colonies. I'm weak and friendly. Yet all but three races are either hostile to me or at war.
