Re: On the hunt for trek (games).

Not anymore, but it used to be available from Home of the Underdogs. I was able to get a replacement CD via that site back in 2009.

Re: Largest System Population

You need to specify if you mean vanilla or with mods, and if with mods, what mods are being used.
The largest I've seen in vanilla was 410, fortunately while I was playing Klingons since they need 200 population for a trade route.

Re: Star Trek Related Fan Games & Mod Projects

The idea is good, the implementation is horrible. I did try to give constructive criticism on what could be done to fix it.

Re: Star Trek Related Fan Games & Mod Projects

What a horrible website. Any attempt to open tabs redirects you to the "enter here" page instead. Then there is that annoying "fixed" CSS junk that sticks at the top of the screen and the distracting flare from the picture, wasting screen space and the distracting animations of those leaves that als...

Re: Tactical cheating

That "h" is something I've only encountered in the last couple years, before that they would put hex, or use a prefix of a dollar sign or 0x. Come to think of it, it has been quite some time since I've seen anyone use the dollar sign notation outside of an Apple II newsgroup or website. Has the "h" ...

Re: Why should AFC remain online?

You gave me a scare yesterday with the crash, the existence of this thread combined with an e-mail telling me "Topic reply notification - "guess what happened?"" made me think you decided to shut down with no warning.

Re: Do you need science structures for subatomic simulators

but vanilla subatomic simulators does not require base intel structures. I'm not sure if that was a typo or not. I'm aware that the above is true, but I was wondering if I needed to build at least one base science structure in the system with the subatomic simulator. If anything, I'd think I'd need...

Do you need science structures for subatomic simulators

One thing that I'm wondering about. If I build subatomic simulators or other similar structures that grant science points, do I need at least one basic type I science structure in the system for it to give me the 100 science or will it work as long as it is powered up? The science screen seemed to i...

Re: How avoid economic crash?

I should have said to build colony ships, but watch your maintenance costs and don't build more than your economy can support. If your mods haven't fixed the terraforming bug where pairing a colony ship with a transport means you can terraform any planet in one turn, then build a few transports to p...

Re: How avoid economic crash?

I don't know about the mod, but in vanilla, the things that cost money are ships, outposts, and starbases. Don't build so many outposts/starbases or warships with high maintenance costs. Don't upgrade to starbases until you are at war.

Re: Starting tech tactic question.

I thought my previous post was precise. I've found that even a single orbital will inflict unacceptable losses on anything less than a heavy destroyer/light cruiser (or whatever the next weakest warship is after the scout and destroyer, or fifth weakest ship if you want to include colony ships and t...

Re: Is upgrading buildings worth it?

I try to get it so that I can put out 500 industry a turn on the unmodded game, with the exception of systems that can build experienced ships, namely the home system, the Andorians, and the Zakdorn. After that I rarely upgrade any more. This is while allowing for some science or intel depending on ...

Re: Level 1 tech playing the Klingons

On Klingons and spying, they did say the Klingons had an intelligence arm in TNG, but never clarified if that was more than just reconnaissance, scouting, and data analysis. There is evidence of Klingon engaging in spying and sabotage in the TOS episode "The Trouble With Tribbles", as well as severa...
