hello guys,

I am playing the Fed and I am in a fight with the Bird. Of course I build some Lokis but 3 times a strange thing happend:

one turn I arrive with a Loki and a freighter on a planet. Next turn the freighter is towed away from the planet by a Bird ship.

The Loki has fuel, no damage, Primary enemy Bird and a random FC, I couldnt see the Bird ship at the planet. I dont understand this. I think the Bird must be decloaked. Do I oversee something or is there something wrong? PLease give me hint.

Most of the games I am in have the config setting "Loki decloak birds" set to no.

What is it set to in your game ?

Never mind the "Emperor Moe'....

I think it's time you changed your name to..........' Emperor Doh'! #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o

Or how about 'The Emperor with no Clothes'?! (or no de-cloaker....get it???? hehe) [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X

It's not cheating. It's a default HConfig command.

Cardno,

obviously I played stupid, but last time I meet you in space (no frills 95) you dropped the games befor turn 10. Maybe because you lost one freighter (to me). I would not laugh so lough if I would play like you do.

Sorry dude - I can't help it. It was pretty funny, and I thought my 'Emperor Doh' was pretty appropriate.
