Re: The battle deployment logic is still an issue...

Can you just add a pre-battle step and let the players set up their forces? Easier said than done I'm sure but maybe it's possible.

Re: The battle deployment logic is still an issue...

Thinking of picking up the game on sale, and this would not stop me, but are the devs aware of it? Seems like something that should be fixed.

Re: Version 1.5.21 Update

Surtur

I reinstalled the game and Immortal Fire. Now when I try to update it says there is an error with the FTP server. Will download 1.5.21 manually and try to install it.

Elmo

Edit - Manually downloading and installing 1.5.21 worked. Thanks.

Re: Version 1.5.21 Update

My game says 1.5.3 so this is not an update for me apparently. The installer says I already have a newer version.

Re: Auto-evasion

That is a fine sentiment but is not consistent with the rest of the game layout of information. Ex. Knowledge troop counts in units, knowledge of morale levels, and knowledge of combat percentages..... Agree. Just about every wargame ever made gives the player more information than his real life co...

This last part I bolded sounds like how one makes decisions in real life, and IMHO is a GOOD thing to have in a game.
Agree completely.

Re: unable to update

Just bought FoG II and can't update it either via the menu. It appears to start but then immediately stops responding. My Matrix Games folder is on my X: drive which is where FoG II is installed. Sounds like the FoG II updater needs to be fixed to recognize drives other than C:. I've updated many Ma...

Is there a replay feature for PBEM games?

Re: Recommended?

I did get it and it's a fine game. Recommended. I've played a ton of 4X games including Galactic Civilizations 1, 2, and 3; MOO 1, 2, and 3, but not 4; Armada 2526 Supernova; Sword of the Stars 1 and 2; Distant Worlds, and a lot more I've forgotten about over the years.

Re: Recommended?

You should just get both. They are both good games, and of course you can never have too many 4X games! :lol:

Re: Wormhole question

OK, thanks. Seems a bit odd since the wormhole connection is one way only, but that's fine.

Re: Wormhole question

Never built one on the other side of a wormhole. That's why I'm asking.

Wormhole question

If I colonize a system at the end of a wormhole with no way back to my Empire is that system still able to share resources with the rest of the Empire? Thanks.

Re: Game only selectively saves some ship designs??

Sorry for the thread necro but I'm late to the party on Polaris Sector. Noticing some ship designs were not there when I did a restart, then I did another restart and they were there. Also noticed none of my planet templates were saved when I started a new game. All games as the humans. Very puzzling.

I'd love to see a "more spreadsheet-like view" of colonized planets that takes up the entire screen, where Planet Names are in the first column and other values (Planet Type, World Role, Population, Production, Orbital Production, Mineral Production / Unproduced Minerals) are in the other columns w...
