Hi Everyone,

The 20th Anniversary of the release of Birth of the Federation is now less than 2 months away "May 25 2019" it is gratuitous that it also falls on Saturday.

I propose we gather on GameRanger for quick multi-player games and reminiscing about our favorite game.

I will try to be on GameRanger as much as I can that day and night and hope to see you there.

Tips of UDM5?

Post by noupgrade » Mon Dec 24, 2018 11:51 pm

Hey Guys,

I've recently started playing UDM5 after playing BOTF - Large No building upgrade version, and struggling to get into it. Obviously the game play mechanics will be different from previous versions so I was wondering if anyone had tips or a strategy guide for the game? Also if anyone wants to discuss how they approach the game and their individual tactics that would be great!

I only have a couple observations

1. tech is basically the same as no upgrade mod so should play some what the same.
2. with higher pop and larger maps colonize every system to build max credit flow and build a lot of ships.
3. Federation has 0 morale penalty for bombarding so playing feds is easier.
