Re: Oh My life

Are you saying multiplayer isn't working, or the games won't start at all?

Re: New ST Series Commissioned by CBS*

I just see the current "pay for everything ala carte" as costing more via being nickel and dimed.

Re: New ST Series Commissioned by CBS*

Whose the we? I can't afford to subscribe to anything until I get a new job. I've been out of work since March and unemployment is out. On the other hand, there is hope, I just got called about a second interview for Tuesday. If it aired on regular TV I'd watch, but anything PPV is out. I can't affo...

Re: Dominion mod question

Is there a mod for the vanilla game or an easy way to make one with that editor to allow you to produce minor race ships once they join you or are subjugated? It's OK if you are limited to their system like with minor race structures (even preferable).

Re: New ST Series Commissioned by CBS*

I'm betting it's not going to be good. They put it on what is essentially PPV in all but name, and when not enough people buy it, they can kill the franchise. Though why they'd want to kill the golden goose I'm unsure. If it were good, they'd put it on regular TV in Prime Time like TNG, Voyager, and...

Re: Starting low tech

Are you talking population? What mods are you guys using? In the game I've been playing, 400 was the highest population I've seen and I think that was the Cardassian homeworld. The best planets are in the 300 range with 250+ being good planets. 40 or 50 systems? That seems like how many systems are ...

Re: Everyone hates me - what am I doing wrong?

I'm not experienced enough with this game to really comment, but I've had the same problem. An old children's song comes to mind, and I thought I'd share in the hopes a few people crack some smiles: http://bussongs.com/songs/nobody-likes-me-worms.php The developers probably had the song in mind when...

Re: Saved game file causes crashes

It isn't super common unless you save several times on the same turn without quitting the game, or you reload a battle several times in single player and then save once you get the best possible outcome, then save again after doing the micromanagement. Fortunately, I only did the latter the first ti...

Re: Saved game file causes crashes

It has been happening to me since I got the game. Usually it happens if you save right before hitting "turn" and a crash occurs at the start of the next turn. All I can suggest is save every turn to a rotating set of save files, so that you don't get set too far back when this happens. It doesn't ha...

Re: Newbie gameplay questions

For those waiting for a reply, I've got a lot to do tomorrow, err today. I'm not going to be able to reinstall until at least the afternoon and probably not until the evening. Given that it's 2am and I can't sleep, I may go to bed early. I have promised to go help my mother with some projects as she...

Re: Newbie gameplay questions

So the install order is CD Joker's Patch and I should skip the 1.2 patch? Can I install Joker's patch over the 1.02 patch, or do I need to uninstall and reinstall? My computer for the purposes of the game is a dual boot Windows 98SE/Windows XP computer. Most of the time I'll boot XP as it is needed ...

Re: Newbie gameplay questions

Maybe I don't have the latest patch then.
Is this what I should have used after the CD?

Re: Newbie gameplay questions

Here's the save. I've been cheating a bit to get the hang of the game. I've used the -Mudd cheat, and hit F10 once every turn. Could that have influenced it?

Re: Newbie gameplay questions

I do actually, one was 35% (I must be going dyslexic) and another from another empire is 70% built. Sorry, I accidentally saved over the saved game, but I've moved my ships back so you can see what I mean. I can't get rid of those partially completed outposts, nor can I complete it myself and use it...

Re: Newbie gameplay questions

Thanks for all the help, although my first question is unanswered.
How do I reclaim a sector the computer built an outpost on? The sector is not colored, not even with the "disputed territory" stripes, there is just an unfinished outpost that I can't remove or destroy.
