Well, 20 turns doesn't get much of a fleet starting with T1. I know being weak makes you get attacked, but believe me, it's worse when the Klingons naturally hate you. As Fed or Romulan you can often get by longer with Klingons on your doorstep. Maybe because elsewhere they have some Cardassians to ...

Yep large map in the corner and peaceful expansion (at first) is the style I like. 8) I've progressed further in my new Cardassian game. Finally overcame the Klingon menace. Oh GOD it felt so good to take Q'onos. :wink: Still have a friendship treaty with the Feds even though they hate my guts for a...

Playing the Cards at Tech 1 can be tough. They don't have many credits and research is slow. That about sums it up. If you play like the Feds, you're only setting yourself up for failure. True, but most of the things you said to do were just like the Feds: - Build scouts, troop transports, and colo...

And clearly the ordering is: Cardassian, Ferengi, Federation, Klingon, Romulan. Strange they put Cardassian first since they made them the worst race. They'd be in alphabetical order if not for the Fer/Fed swap. Weird. Oh, the ordering does match the ordering of alliances. Card - Fer - Fed - Kli - R...

Yep it was a T1 game. Looking again at their fleet, I think it might actually be 6 scouts, 8 destroyers and a Transport. I can't be sure though, I can never remember the pictures. Cardies are so poor that it's hard to do anything. I should have just paid the Klingons though, even though I'd have bee...

LOL - Cardassians SUCK.

Got bored and decided to play a new game of BotF with Cardassians. I only put it on Average difficulty since I find that Cardassians suck (normally I win easily on Hard with any other race.) Of course I can't get the corner (I never get the corner with Cardassians) but oh well. I sent a lone Transpo...

Interesting. Then I wonder if you can hide out in Rubicun until the Borg wipe everyone else out? I know they'd want to keep attacking you, but I don't know for sure if other cubes wouldn't also attack the other races.

I didn't notice the Borg attacking weak points, but I did notice that once they target your colonies, they go after YOUR colonies until you are gone. "The Borg don't do anything piecemeal." :lol: One game I was Ferengi and winning, then the Borg wiped me out. I tried making a refuge colony WAY far a...

Your situation sounds worse than mine, however even with a really fast machine, I get a lot of lag on the LARGE Galactic map. I only switch to the large map when I am setting long trade routes, then I switch back to the Small GalMap as soon as I can. I couldn't imagine playing the whole game on the ...

Liberating planets is only for minor races that someone else had previously conquered. It returns them to non-aligned status. It probably gives the Federation a big morale boost, but I'm not certain. What difficulty are you on? If you're bored, try a harder difficulty? Usually once you feel safe, yo...

Best thing for intel is to just have enough of it. Basically I designate 2 types of systems: - Ship Production Systems (highest population, for instance 250+) - Intel/Research Systems (smaller ones, i.e. the rest) If I'm playing Cardassian or Romulan, they get the special +100 Intel structures, so t...

I have WWP, that's a shame yours broke, maybe I could somehow send you the files? Considering you own a license.

I made a cool soundset for it from Mystery Science Theater 3000 once, heh. Never quite finished it but I have most of the sounds it usually uses.

What other classic (strategy or space) games do you like?

Since we are aficionados of a 10-year old strategy game, I wondered what other old games people might play. Here's mine: Master of Orion II -- Precursor to BotF ("4x" space game), better in some ways, not in others... ironically under XP it ends up being more crashy and buggy for me than BotF Master...

Sure, they can take out a cube if say, half of them are right there waiting wherever the cube pops up. Otherwise, the cube will probably spawn more cubes before I can get there, then I'm toast. Hasn't happened yet in this game... I do have Rubicun, though. Is the Edo God immune to cubes?
