Re: Custom Race

To create ogv files there are several encoders: LINK Command line encoder: ffmpeg2theora LINK - If you are comfortable using command-line this one does everything GUI based: Theora Converter.NET LINK - Easy to use. This one works well to convert AVI files but not suited for sequenced image files. A...

Never really noticed it, since I always make sure to have a barracks on every colony I make.

Re: Tantik are way too overpowered

Well, AI in these types of games are quite predictable, i might ask for peace and they say no, i am disgusting, being friendly with your kind is nothing but trouble, well not in those exact words, but you get the idea, but the very next turn, they ask for the same thing they insulted me by saying no...

Re: Small Ships Scout Hull Points

I personally never build scouts, i stick to transports and above.

Transports for exploring, colonization

Cruisers for the warship.....motherships and scouts just aren't used by me.

I personally build them on every colony i have, it takes a little bit of time, but its quite easy to do.

Re: Some ideas

When it comes to building limits, its like this:

Small = 8

Medium = 9

Large = 10

Huge = 11

Homeworlds are unique in build limits, huge size homeworlds give 14 slots instead of 11.

Re: Best Game Ever

I'm going to suggest starting over because of the difficulty setting you used. My first "normal" difficulty game I deleted because it was very frustrating and really took the fun out of it. You can always up the number of systems when starting a new game ( recommended! ) and probably shou...

Re: What exactly is "reckless expansion"?

I seem to recall reading somewhere, Cant find it now, that colonizing within the supply range of the AI could also trigger this. Supply range being indicated by the circle around a star system. So if you colonize too close to them they tell you to stop expanding. If that is the case and they are fo...

Re: Legend and mining colonies

When it comes to the whole mining colony, i tend to just not bother, it requires you to gimp your colonies to get the bonuses of mining, which i think it shouldn't, it was fine before they made it a requirement to be a mining colony, which means farming needs to be minimum, if you can't get enough f...

Re: game flaws preliminary report

Well, most players now-a-days rush, maybe you should slow down abit and take the time to actually play the game instead of just beating the game.

Well, i play with the advanced race mode active, so i have a pretty advanced race, i avoid building scout ships, its rather pointless, i modify the plans for transport 1 to become a explorer/colony ship, giving it scanning tools, colony pod and a cloaking device, not that it does anything to prevent...

Re: What exactly is "reckless expansion"?

The races are not all supposed to be friendly and the tantiks are xenophobes.Diplomacy was a joke before as you basically dictated the galaxy to your whim. Well, the tantiks i can understand, but all the races are basically the same, you expand, you pee them off, they expand towards you and they ge...

Re: Add combat option to prevent total wipeout of colonies

While i personally never invade planets, i just burn them to the ground and then colonize them since my race is far superior (advanced race option enabled), so i just either invade and commit genocide and then build up the colony or just wipe out the colony and then colonize it. The whole bombing ph...

I honestly can't play it now, i always used Bio-Energy Armour, Hydrogen Generator and Antimatter Torpedoes, now i can't even choose to do that, let alone terraform from the get go, since none of it is available for custom races, even with Advanced Race option ticked. Maybe it is a oversight or somet...
