I've seen the "Electric Universe" stuff, some of it is interesting, some questionable. Anyway, I don't see a lot of concrete science in this thread. Let's examine some definite facts. The article claims: "The team, who found that one particular star made a full orbit of the black hole in the 16 year...

Dang. Another critical thing I never knew, cause they never bothered explaining it. So the minor races with ground combat boosts AREN'T totally useless after all!

Started in 2000? with Federation of course. Found the game very frustrating after the freedom of Master of Orion II -- "why do they get mad at EVERYTHING I DO?? I can't freaking INVADE SYSTEMS?? Upgrading structures takes HOW LONG?? Making races like me costs HOW MUCH???" Yeah. I don't think the str...

Hmmm thanks. I remember seeing that display now, but it never seemed to make sense when I kept losing. How about my questions about the transport strengths, is it always 100 each, or more when upgraded? I've been reading some of the tips, some are pretty amazing, such as transport + colony ship = in...

Ground Defense?

Maybe I'm blind, but I have never understood how you can tell an enemy system's ground defense. Where is it listed?? I'm tired of losing giant fleets of transport ships in seemingly ridiculous defeats. Supposedly you need 1 transport to counter 100 ground defense - how about transport II, do they co...

Then I had to reformat my hard drive for various reasons. Fresh install of windows, applied all patches. Reinstalled...
