Re: Any modded/balanced cloak combat?

The ships stats would definitely need to be improved. There's an annoying thing where the cloak usually gets disengaged after some kind of encounter with the ship, and I've forgotten to check and turn it back on. Then I get into a fight and without that free shot, I lose even when I have a ship or t...

Re: Losing Research Progress (not from sabotage)

I haven't played V, but that doesn't happen in I-IV.

Re: Losing Research Progress (not from sabotage)

That would be regressing a level, rather than just losing research.
In any case, this is why I always thought it was intentional and why I always keep everything at 1%, although I'm unsure if this works if you start at tech level 1 and/or have less than 100 research to allocate.

Re: Losing Research Progress (not from sabotage)

I always thought it was intentional, in that if you cut off funding to a major research project, they will lay off or at least reassign the personnel involved, and also reassign or re-purpose the equipment. This makes it harder to later go back and restart things. Also experiments in progress would ...

"Accidentally" won too soon

I wanted to play with the Defiants and see if they were as good as I remembered, and so I started a vanilla game as the Feds on "Domination". Yet I managed to get the AI to surrender in a little over 110 turns, never even got the second generation heavy cruisers or dreadnoughts, let alone Defiants. ...

Re: Be safe everyone

Laid off or furloughed? Laid off used to mean the same thing, but now it means you lost your job through no fault of your own. Furloughed means an involuntary, non-disciplinary unpaid leave of absence, but I will have a job in a month or so to go back to. They shut down the buildings, had whoever co...

Re: Be safe everyone

I thought they were put on hold until the virus scare was over.
Just like my job has been put on hold. I've been furloughed for the next 3 weeks.

Re: Refresh me on exploits for credits

I was just asking, was my memory correct on those exploits and how to use them? There were two different exploits I mentioned, were they both correct, and thus it is to my advantage to always hit the "buy" button when only one turn remains when building things (structures, ships, etc)? If I need mon...

Refresh me on exploits for credits

I'm seeing some conflicting information on some exploits in the game. I think some mod or the installer on the site had fixed some bug/exploit causing the confusion. In any case, can you guys help confirm or deny the following: You can earn more credits by building a ship with your industrial struct...

Re: Owning an english "Starfleet Command 2" anyone?

I missed this message. It's late, but I do have that installed on my old computer. I could still make the file.
Sorry, I joined the forums too late, if I had been earlier I could have helped years ago.

Re: Starfleet Command III: Please help!

You probably need DirectX 9.0c, try this link for suggestions, and if they don't work search the Microsoft site for DirectX 9.0c.

Re: New Game - Opening Strategy

I thought the population only gave credits and support if they were doing something. Having 5 level 1 intel structures was more useful than having 2 upgraded intel structures with 3 unused workers even if they give the same amount of intel because you'd get more credits. Am I remembering wrong? I ha...

Re: New Game - Opening Strategy

Mind if I ask a few things? I often have trouble in the low-tech games without cheating by hitting F10 a turn or two. One thing on the food thing, what about if you have unused workers but insufficient credits to purchase factories, universities or intelligence (after making contact with other empir...

Re: Enterprise CV-6

I believe that CV-6 Enterprise is the most decorated ship in the history of the United States Navy. It's the Audie Murphy of ships.
I agree she deserves a place of honor.
