don't you have a genesis device??? to be honest: it is a riddle to me how you can have mineral problems. The Fed always has tons of cash... ok, you confirmed that. But Where was the problem about planting bovinoids on every single planet and have around 5 - 10 Merlins doing the rest of the job? Yes,...

I know of four Dark Wings, so far: DW 103 & 345, equipment unknown. Ship 204 & 249 have Disruptors. DW204 has Overkill. DW249 has Big surprise. You are sure that you don't mean Diamond Flames instead of Darkwings? You talk about fighting the Crystals (that's me I guess) and seeing your ships gettin...

I just bought a new computer myself and have more or less the same question. AFAIK now I have the 64bit version of windows 7 and don't intend to change that. So my only choices are running vpl on my old laptop or using some kind of simulator? I used dosbox some years ago but never tried that simulat...

first I have to say thank you for the scout :) second... it was a test. I was not sure myself what will happen. But after reading the power game descriptions again and again it became clearer to me. The honor device will be activated if a ship gets captured in battle. Well... that was no battle. You...

same here... I wanted to attack the Fascists. We had a NAP... but then I found some of his ships spying around and started to fight earlier. Was a funny beginning with a few cloakers for me again. The upcoming conflict with the Lizards was also promising but to be honest I guess there are enough goo...

I have to say I was also a bit disappointed about the early drops. Ok, I took the bird HW very early (and with a bit luck) so that drop is ok for me. Later I forced Gil (Empire) out of the game. But Fletch is right... I don't see much chances. The Lizards grew too strong and now it is by far to late...

don't hate me... but can we pause it?

Hi people... I don't care too much about my other games (still trying to find someone to do my turns in NF82 and or 81 and or 79 - the order shows what is most important) but in this game I really don't want to miss a turn. Unfortunately (well, in fact I love it but when it comes to the game it is n...

I love the Colonies' race-specific FC 'HA#' where # = the # of the asteroid.. I used it to great effect last turn and am now whisking asteroid 1 safely to its final resting place.. someone's HW maybe ? 8) :lol: :twisted: Colonial Command "HA#"? Can't find that one... only IA# and TA# Did I miss som...

Good to hear that... it was exactly that problem - I never played with this add on before and wondered how many asteroids are out there. Would have been a problem if there are asteroids everywhere and I see not single one. But if that is normal to play without them for several turns I don't care. In...

As already mentioned... the easiest way to speed the game up again is killing races 1 and 2.

Let the hunt begin ;)

btw... anyone already spotted an asteroid? Should I get an ingame message via sensor sweep or is there a special way to scan for these things? It's so empty out there...

Well... I prefer avians instead of insectoids. Once taxed down to 70hp it takes ages for some insectoid governments to recover while those stupid birds forget what you did to them in two or three turns. And bovinoids are also nice... if you sell the supplies you get something around 600 - 700mc each...

well... all those desert worlds. I have them too.
But you guys don't have that 7mio bovo planet next to your hw??? I thought everyone got one placed there to compensate that.

Well... whatever
