Hi Everyone,

The 20th Anniversary of the release of Birth of the Federation is now less than 2 months away "May 25 2019" it is gratuitous that it also falls on Saturday.

I propose we gather on GameRanger for quick multi-player games and reminiscing about our favorite game.

I will try to be on GameRanger as much as I can that day and night and hope to see you there.

Re: Keyboard commands suddenly not working

I had those sometimes; mouse click not working either; i can get it to work again sometimes after a few ESC-> Continues but it always comes back; it usually ends up with abandoning the game.

Re: how to play EXTRA LARGE galaxy ?

Although we appreciate the academic and research value of this patch, yeah, the TC has gone mad. I'll stick to my regular maps generating thank you very much. I stop colonizing at 20-25 systems; add to that the minors i member, and the conquests, and the CDO of not leaving colonized systems idle, an...

Re: (Updated 4-26-15) Ultimate Dominion mod III 3.0.1ddb

as for the ship types the AI builds, that is very tricky if you set to build mainly command ships the AI really suffers at low tech. plus AI must build cs and tt's to expand and scout/destroyers to explore. You can always edit ship stats to meet your wishes. In this mod i made the destroyers more p...

Re: Starting low tech

Population increase does not require mods; just use UE and set the population limits for the different kind of planets; At galaxy generation; for regular system the game will stop adding planets when pop is above 400; minor systems and home worlds are not affected by this limit. I had minors with up...

Re: Low Build & Population Ship Costs

In single player there's no need; AI already has lots of ships and does not care a bit about maintenance;
The goal for me is to limit the number of ships so the game does not slow down when it gets more interesting (i.e. when the economy is established and 75% of the systems are building ships)

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.4 (Updated 23/5/15)

The only issue with large population is that you can't have more than 60 industries in a system; but you can always spread it to research or intel; believe me i tried larger populations :D) And that if you don't get a lot of structures at colonizing it takes a while before you build all those main b...

Re: Ultimate Mod 5 v2.4 (Updated 23/5/15)

system generation keeps adding planets to get population above 250 and stops completely above 400; but major home systems and minors don't abide by this rule; so if planets population has been raised you may get some huge minor systems.

Re: Ultimate Editor

Shield penetration and shield level have no effect; probably they wanted to do something with these params but did not get around to implementing it. Range is clear. Accuracy of the ship firing (for beams and torps) is compared against the defense of the ship being fired upon to calculate hit/miss c...
