My fleet is interdicted by me. How do I escape the battle?

I need help saving my ships. I sent these ships (my most powerful) to kill a couple freighters in orbit around an enemy planet. After I was done, I tried to retreat my ships, but the retreat button was missing. I had made the mistaken assumption that I could tell my interdiction frigate to turn off ...

Re: Polaris Sector

I thought you guys might like to know I heard about this game from the Angry Joe show, and his review convinced me the buy the game too. If it weren't for him, I'd have never known this game existed.

Re: Troop transport can't unload troops.

You are correct. There appears to be a bunch of enemy fighters in the system. I'd better leave before they decide my ship looks better exploding. You are also correct - every destroyer I have these days has at least 1 boson gun. These fighters will be easy to squish with the destroyer at Acubens. Th...

Troop transport can't unload troops.

I can't attach my save game since it is bigger than 2 megabytes, so you'll have to trust me with this, or give me another place where I can send a file that is 3.4 megs in size. I have examined the troop transport, which has tanks and bombers, trying to drop the troops on a planet belonging to an em...

Re: Shield matchup question

Thank you. This makes it possible to calculate now. It won't be fun since I often have 5 or 6 shield generators on my ship, but it'll be possible. Yay!

Re: Modding Invasion Mechanism

Also, AI planets never revolt, do they? In my personal experience: I had a couple spy ships in orbit over a planet that was fighting a losing battle with an evil invading army. Sadly, nothing could be done and my spies reported when the planet was lost. Immediately, I ordered my spies to destroy al...

Re: Shield matchup question

I searched for every post in this area that had the word shields in it, and could find no mention of effective shield ratings, nor even how well they protect against missiles.

Shield matchup question

I prefer my starships having a bunch of shields (Helps them not randomly explode as much). My question concerns different types of shields on the same vessel. I've read the manual carefully, and even Google, but can not find an answer: Different shields block missiles and torpedoes differently, and ...

Mods

I've been looking for the mods to Polaris Sector, and I found one... It seems to have been made before the game's release... And... there are no others. (This is of course the Star Wars mod). It's been quite some time since the release too. Usually I see a flood of mods in other such games, but I ca...

Re: issues with Polaris Sector V1.05b

I've had my spies destroy colonial modules too since they had nothing better to do.
I take it this is bad?
I'm told they were successful, but I never bothered to check since I just happened to be flying my spies elsewhere anyways. >.>

Re: Can't affect invaded planets.

Thank you. I personally prefer to use troop invasions more as a distraction. When I see the enemy producing massive ground troops that I know I can never defeat, I have to stop them... somehow. I don't want to bomb them since I don't like killing civilian/future citizens. So, I send in 1 small trans...

Speed of alien ships

I really think something is wrong somewhere, because every alien ship I am seeing is super fast, even though their technology is well below mine. I mean, here I'm looking at a freighter that can move at speed 12.38. I've seen fully armed capital ships moving over 5, and mine limp along at maybe 2, w...

Can't affect invaded planets.

I have invaded a planet, but it is taking a bit too long to win or lose. I have about 5 spy vessels in orbit. I can't seem to make them do anything to the planet. I'd like to destroy enemy troops. This should be easy, especially since they are distracted by an entire invading enemy force. Is this a ...

Re: Combat complaint

Just as a possibly unimportant note, the excimer lasers weren't what was hitting the enemy ships that were far away (since they are close range point defence).

It was probably realized I was talking about IR lasers. The really long range ones that do next to no damage, but always hit.

Re: Fuel tank materials

I would personally always think a cake would require more sugar. If a bun required the same amount of sugar as a cake, I'd be very worried about the bun.

I'm probably missing your point though.

Fuel tank materials

I noticed every single fuel tank I can build uses the exact same materials and needs the same amount of production.

This seems suspicious, and is more likely to be a copy/paste mistake or something than intentional.

Re: Invasion Bug found?

As a note, earlier I do recall trying to land both ground support aircraft and tanks on the planet at the same time, and being unable to unload either. That save game is long gone, so I can't be sure if not being able to land tanks also prevented it from landing bombers since I tried to drop them al...

As I was typing a description of the problem in a mail to you, it suddenly occurred to me that I was trying to land tanks on an ocean world. It would be much nicer if I got a prompt of the error - tanks can't land on an oceanic world. Right now, I just may lose some tanks as they try to land, and th...

It took a long time, but I finally gave you my money via Bluesnap.com. The problem was they wanted an email address that was not a forwarding address. Basically, they wanted an email address I could not turn off. As a result, since I provided my real email address, I can be spammed a ton. <sigh> I r...
