my game

Postby Immelmann » Fri May 15, 2009 5:13 pm

now that i finally got 1.4 to work on dosbox, all i need to do is find the time to play an online game. i thought i would use my single player examples and is it worth it to play it online or not.

game settings are..

difficulty avg
size huge
galaxy age avg
players 8
tech pre warp
and i select all three options in the lower right

for race stats i usually go with

-10 ship D
-10 ground troops
pop growth +100
prod +2
large/rich home world

as for tech, i go for research labs 1st, then freighters, auto factory, then finish of all the basic techs. then i get super comp and then shield level 3, and then research laser to max. then i work on getting the production tech, until robo miners, then i go for auto lab.

Doesn't sound too far off from a production race, but you need better food production and a pop modifier, SubT or Aqua. Try Unification/SubT/Aquatic/+1 Production.

Your Tech tree seems ok, but you might need more battle tech early. Research labs, then Auto factories, then cloning centers, then Pollution Processors. You would then have MIRV Nukes, which can be pretty effective early enough in the game.

Overall, with a few games online you should be able to wreak havoc!
