Re: finally out but don't work

I was so happy to see this finally out of early access that I went and bought it. Crash right out of the gate! But wait there is an update! Applied and crash right out of the gate. There is an update button which updated the updater but found no new updates. All I get is a black square in the upper...

Re: Error-Setting Path for Deluxe DLC Pack

Similar to the OP I installed Sengoku Jidai to a non-default location. I then tried to install the Mandate of Heaven DLC and it does not give an option to change the install folder and claims it is installing to the default location. I run the install anyway and it finishes (seemingly) instantly. Th...

Re: Can't affect invaded planets.

I really hate the way bombings are handled in this game. Just about every Sci-Fi book shows ships selectively bombing troops and installations but all we can do is kill civilians. In my last game I found that no troops will killed until there was no population left to support them.

Re: Refueling should have been here

My understanding is if you include a tanker in a fleet, it will automatically refuel the other ships when it gets to a planet. I've never done it this way so I'm not sure what happens if the tanker doesn't have enough fuel to do this. I normally park a tanker at a system and refuel other fleets when...

Re: Fighter (small ship) expirience bug

Yes, even when expanded, none of the fighters show any experience. I'm sure these are the same fighters that previously had experience as some of them show damage.

Re: Mid- to Late-Game Blahs?

Thanks for info. Didn't know they couldn't build while invasion was underway. I just assumed my first force would get wiped out so I kept bringing up more troops. But they were building as fast as I could. I also assumed that battle would be over before I could ship in new troops. Another thought is...

Re: Mid- to Late-Game Blahs?

Wow! I'm impressed. I take planets with 86 % interception defense. Just be sure to have enough troops for a second run 1 planet out. 2 runs from what i remember alwys worked. I use fighters and ground attack ships, sometimes throw afew tanks. FireStorm1010 I interpret the 86% defense as meaning 86%...

Re: Mid- to Late-Game Blahs?

Also, espionage is the key for breaking hard defenses - leave newbie stealth ships idle in enemy systems to gain 2* experience first, then break their spine in all-out building sabotage sweep. Its important to move your spies 2 jumps deep into your space before the operation in case if they were di...

Re: Mid- to Late-Game Blahs?

Pretty much the same problem. Haven't played it since I realized glassing the planet was the only option to take a planet. Logan's are building massive defense forces and have 5 bases (76% loss on landing). No way to take it. I had the exact same thought about SF always allowing targeting of militar...

Re: Fighter (small ship) expirience bug

I checked and I have the same problem with my non-steam version 1.03c. All fighters are now missing the experience they had gained in previous battles. Large ships still have experience stars showing.

Re: It's been a LONG time since a game has grabbed me like t

3. Planetary bombardment should be able to target specific elements. Agree completely! Just got into my first major war and want to take a planet that has 5 defense centers (the ones that take out landing troops, currently at 76%!). They are building massive numbers of ground forces and I thought b...

Re: How they do that?

It would be nice if they would make an absolute limit from their nearest star system or something like that. I was surprised when I saw the manual say that if you try to retreat from battle, you head out to a random neighboring star! That could put you unable to return home. Looks like the AI don't ...

Re: I hate to bring up tankers again, but...

Well, I see the patch didn't address the tanker issue. How did this even get out of beta this way? You have to micromanage the heck out of it or you get stranded tankers everywhere. Off course, I can't see how being able to refuel another ship requires an expensive module. Wouldn't it simply be a ho...

The option to reserve fuel will be added. I hope this is more detailed than just reserve the amount needed to reach closest colony. If I am trying to ferry 3 ships with 5000 range between two colonies that are 9000 apart, I may have to stop at 5000 from the original colony. I don't want to force th...

Two words: Online DRM I realize Matrix/Slitherine doesn't use Steam's DRM but I have yet to find anyone who will tell me that they were able to download the game, save it to a backup drive, delete Steam entirely, and restore the game to playable condition. The key is that I will not buy a game that ...
