Also a nice one:
Just got around 5 MBRs by setting my planet (+ base) fc to "EEE" and the base mission to "force a surrender"
That guy didn't learn it for three turns. I guess he gave up trying to steal my ships without having the slightest clue what happened. Too bad... I could really need more of those and it is much cheaper than cloning.
Sure, only works with noobs but there are soooooo many out there
Yeah, in another game, a noob sent freighters flying with their destinations visible every which way. I think I'm gonna go kill him. But I feel kinda bad about it hahahaha.
Incidentally I also tried that in NF63. Some Fascist bugger was pillaging my cyborg world (my fleet had been largely destroyed). So I was going through the FC codes, like mkt, DDD, etcetera trying to get him to surrender. Never worked, but it was satisfying to try
