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...

Re: Where were we? Gettysburg: The Tide Turns releases this

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.

Re: A list of features for the next patch or DLC

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...

Thinking of getting this with my 12 year anniversary coupon. Did the AI fuel cheat/bug ever get fixed? How has dev support been? Thanks.

Re: Drive on Moscow version 1.06 Patchnotes

I have Ccleaner as well. Not a big deal, just thought I'd mention it since it happened during the install and thought it was worth posting in case anyone else saw the same thing.

Edit - Rebooting after doing a cleaning looks like it fixed whatever was making Windows unhappy.
