World sizes > Medium = "Not Recommended?"

Post by gunnergoz1 » Sun May 18, 2014 10:14 pm

Is this a feature or a bug that is being worked on? I like playing larger maps but so far the only CTD I've experienced with Pandora was with a Large map size. I take it Huge is even more unstable?

It should not be any less stable.

The reason it isn't recommended is because it does not represent the intended experience -- too much land, too many cities to manage, not enough border conflict. But if you like it, great!

Oh, I get more than enough border conflict, believe me. And the pesky aliens pile on as well.

The last beta's have become a lot more challenging... I now need to build an army early in the game, which I did not experience before. Might also have increased border conflicts on big maps.

You mean the experience where the local warmongering faction piles up on me even as I'm building an army?

Yes, I'm a bit bitter. I'm finding easy difficulty not so easy.

That's your fault for not grabbing hives early. It's like you don't want the extra money that comes with committing genocide against indigenous populations!

Try lowering the alien aggression. This will give you longer to build up an army before the bugs start coming at you.

I wasn't talking about hives, I meant other factions.

Won't attacking hives early also provoke aggression early?

Hives give you tons of credits that you can use to jump start your economy. The military units used in hive clearing get XP and are very useful in wars against the AI later too.

The military units, used against aliens sent from a non cleared hive, get even more XP. That's why I try to not clear the hives. Even, hives can be a defense of your borders.
