Re: Starting tech tactic question.

Destroyers and scouts tend to die attacking planets with even one orbital battery, but at low tech levels in the vanilla game, it is possible to assail systems with cruisers if they don't have too many batteries. Just make sure you have enough cruisers. At least nine of various types. Also separate ...

Re: Starting tech tactic question.

Either get the minors before they develop defenses or bribe them, those are your only options. I know having the Andorians or Zakdorn able to build experienced ships can give you an extreme advantage since normally that ability doesn't happen until tech level 5, so save your credits and bribe them.

Re: Are we there yet?

Cardassians have means of subjugating races, Ferengi can make trade routes without treaties and have money making and morale enhancing structures.
Klingons generally have slightly stronger ships and like war. You don't have morale penalties for planetary bombardment. Some Klingon ships have cloaks.

Re: New CBS ST TV Series Teaser Coming in 2017

I just keep thinking that Gene Roddenberry is rolling in his grave about CBS owning Star Trek in the first place. Given the now well-publicized thing they did to him when he first pitched Star Trek to them. Granted, the people responsible are probably as dead as Gene is now, but still, every account...

Re: Keyboard commands suddenly not working

while i am no expert or BOTF, i enjoy a casual game here and there...and i think to myself - there are shortcut keys!? in vanilla or just in the mods? It is in vanilla. They are all listed in the manual. https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/get-files?cw_action=fileview&file_id=19 http://replacementdo...

Re: Keyboard commands suddenly not working

I don't know, it is extremely rare, and since "turn it off, turn it back on again" worked I never investigated as it did not exactly happen again any time soon. It would be months before it happened again.

Re: Keyboard commands suddenly not working

Well I ended up shutting my computer down for several hours (I was out running errands this afternoon/evening), and when I started my computer back up, the keyboard commands were working again. :???: So at this point I don't know if it was the f-lock/F12 key or not, but I'll definitely bear it in m...

Re: Windows 10 - Worse Windows Ever!

So far the phones soon were replaced anyway as they improved rapidly. But just like the desktop pcs they now come to a point where the hardware easily suffices the most user's needs for years. ) Heh, Moore's Law was in full effect from the 1970's until the late 2000's. Let's hope it doesn't take 30...

Anything will have to wait until I can afford a new computer. My best computer is from 2009 and is running Windows 7.

Re: Windows 10 - Worse Windows Ever!

I have always had trouble with using VM to play games except for really old DOS games with DOSBOX. I'd have to make the business machine the VM. In any case, there are or used to be (I haven't looked in years) companies that did offer support for their flavor of Linux for a fee. That was part of the...

Re: Windows 10 - Worse Windows Ever!

I'm convinced the main reason they get away with all this is because the general public does not understand exactly what is being done and what information is being harvested and collected. That, and they don't have the gumption to turn down the big companies, same as with software and one-sided EUL...

Re: Folllow Us on Facebook

The reason you don't delete it is so that nobody can register it in your name and slander you. People can do searches on your name, look for your facebook account, and draw conclusions. Reserving it prevents that. On the other hand, I never bothered to create one, nor a twitter account. I probably s...

Re: Oh My life

I had a similar issue. Do you have an ATI graphics card or integrated video? If so, try installing an older version of Catalyst Control Center, one published around either when the PC came out or around when Windows 7 came out, whichever is newer (but still a few years old). If that doesn't help, lo...
