Re: All in One version 2.0.0 installer

Hi, (The thing I'd most want to see is a high resolution mod that does not shrink all the assets. My eyes do not deal well will tiny fonts and arrows and what have you. I'm not asking for it and do not expect to see it. I'm kind of amazed that work is still being done on this game at all! Just sayin...

Re: New Game - Opening Strategy

Hi, It's been a long time since I've played vanilla. Population is good to have even when they have nothing to do. They provide credits and they provide fleet support. Less importantly, they also increase a planet's ground troops. So let them sit idle, and don't slow down the growth. It is said that...

Re: All in One version 2.0.0 installer

Huh.

Even in 40*30 games, I'd expect empires to often start more than 10 sectors away from all but one other empire, or even from all empires.

Re: All in One version 2.0.0 installer

Hi,

As an aside, in what ways does the AI "fail when not at least two other empires within a max distance of ten sectors?"

Thanks,

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.)
