It should be a series of clips of the various Captain's smiling and shaking hands?

No that is perfectly normal. Where else would you put them? Places you already know are safe? Ideally, I put them right on the border and make them as "safe" as possible, but given the time it takes to build them and their power requirements, I am often forced to make due with planets further away ...

I don't know if this would be considered unusual, but I am quite fond of advanced scanning arrays on my borders. There is nothing like being able to keep an eye on your neighbors, know well in advance when they are looking to trouble you (or an ally), watching their little wars play out, and even ke...

I tend to expand outwards (by whatever means is most expedient, although early on I try to favor a combination of diplomacy and colonization) along a more or less even frontier (that is, an expanding circle moving out from my core systems). I fortify this outer ring with starbases and continue to ex...

Many thanks! I have fiddled with the mod a little but have not yet had time for a full game. That limitation notwithstanding, I must say, I am most impressed.

Downloading All Ages Mod

Maybe my eyes are failing me, but I cannot seem to find the all ages mod on the download page of this site. Is it still available for download and, if so, where can I find it?

I tend to terraform all the planets in a system prior to colonization in order to save time and not "waste" the colony ship. There are, of course, exceptions: If I need to establish myself in the system/expand my territory quickly to keep a rival from moving in/drive a treaty power further out of my...

Sounds like an interesting game, and quite well described, I might add. Am I to understand that, in the mod you are playing, you can actually build minor race ships? 8O

INo matter how much I win. I guess the only option is total annihilation. If you are the UFP, a lengthy bombardment will just anger your own population. Anyway, even if you have to constantly look after the morale of the captured system, chances are it is still going to be more of an asset to your ...

The Ultimate Mod is particularly interesting. It is very different from "Vanilla" BOTF. I particularly appreciated the inclusion of the Dominion and the modification of starbases and outposts. Is there a thread in which this mod is discussed at greater length?
