Re: Nostalgia... and ship movement bug

Hi, I have also experienced that bug in a few game lately, but ships have reversed direction when it happens. To me this sounds like a saved game error, or possibly and intel tactic/attack. but I don't know of any fix or code location for this behavior Thanks for the quick response. This is an old b...

Nostalgia... and ship movement bug

Hi, I recently used the (very nice!) shiny All-In-One Installer to launch a nostalgia trip to botf, revisiting some of my favorite mods. And sometime after Turn 50, my ships stopped moving from time to time. I *knew* this, back in the day, but nostalgia has a way of obscuring that kind of memory. Do...

Re: BOTF Release date Anniversary

Who is your favorite major race? Ferengi (their dialog rules!) The Ferengi are the comedy element in the original botf and I had first a lot of fun with them, but it's not canon that they are a superpower in the alpha quadrant compared to the others. It's weird that the developers of botf made them...

Re: Hey :) Newbie here

You will *not* get civ6 to run on an old, cheap laptop. You might not even get it to run on a modern laptop with poor specs. When it comes to laptops, I strongly recommend buying new, even if you just want to do simple things. Anything you buy new will run botf reasonably well. I would avoid used. I...

Re: Galactic Civilizations free

Hi, Note that $1 for GC2 is a better deal than free GC1. Anyway, Ken Agreed. Nothing against the first GalCiv game, just that the second one is more replayable by several ordered of magnitude. Yup. You can play as any of the factions. You can design your own ships. Planetary management is a lot mor...

Re: Galactic Civilizations free

Note that $1 for GC2 is a better deal than free GC1. Yep, but wait, for $15 you also unlock GC3, that's how they lure customers. :lol: But that game isn't my style anyway. I opted for Endless Space on Steam now, hope it's worth that buck. Funny they run these deals same time. :roll: gc3 is similar ...

Re: Espionage as a substitute for science?

My own experience is that the amount of science stolen is very low.

Stealing money, otoh, is very lucrative.

Re: RC5 - BOTF All in one installer (Updated 1-9-2017)

*grin* clearly I'm not most people. I like enabling system name, system population and current production on the main screen; this doesn't work very well in the higher res patches.

(I also enable ship range and ship path, but that doesn't matter.)

Re: RC5 - BOTF All in one installer (Updated 1-9-2017)

I find that my interactions with UI lags just enough for me to notice the difference. Trackpad response isn't immediate and crisp, as though something were consuming most system resources. It is subtle but persistent, and just uncomfortable enough for me to prefer only running through DxWnd after a ...

Re: RC5 - BOTF All in one installer (Updated 1-9-2017)

I don't use dxwnd for bop.

I only use it for um when there's a big battle that would normally crash.

This is because the game seems to run sluggishly with dxwnd.

Re: How avoid economic crash?

Oh,

Scrapping ships for money works great in vanilla, but poorly in UM5. The best way to scrap a ship is to die gloriously in victory.

Re: How avoid economic crash?

Hi, * Strive for a large population. People provide free ship support as well as credits. Building colonies is good. Terraforming to boost growth rate is good. * Let colonies grow. Patience is required because they grow slower than you would like. Only spend credits on essential infrastructure or to...

Re: Mod suggestions for new player

Hi, 3 best mods, imo, are BOP, UM and UDM. I prefer BOP over the others, except for the problem of invasion being so difficult, because the design goal of having the factions feel different while maintaining a kind of balance has been achieved, though the faction balance is definitely not perfect. I...
