Re: Steam vs. The Matrix install....

That's actually preferable. Generally speaking, most windows games, except quite old ones, save somewhere to their own save folder located under the "documents" folder or "documents\my games" folder. The save format is most likely compatible between the two versions, so there should be no issue.

Re: 'Easy' Level - REALLY?!?

As a side note, a user was complaining on steam that there was no even difficulty for the AI (no +/- for AI). The dev response said that they might consider making the easiest one ("easy") even, which would mean it would be more difficult.

Re: Deployment

If Empires says you have a stronger army than your opponent but you lose the battle when it is resolved, you can usually win the battle by playing it in FOG 2 - but I have found that Empires creates great battlefields and wonderful army match-ups that you would not get in FOG 2. The two work togeth...

Re: Total Conversion mod Based on Lord of the Rings?

To do such a mod, you would need an artist, or have the talent yourself, to create all the units required to support it. Then if you are going to have magic units, like Gandalf's Light from his staff, then you have entirely different unit stat to implement, and you would need to support that new sta...

Saving after campaign mission

After beating a campaign mission, I try to save. So I hit escape since I do not see a save button, then I am out of the campaign and load using the autosave. I find it kind of strange that I cannot save after a campaign mission. Am I missing how to save or is it really not there and players must rel...

Buying from Amazon

If I buy from amazon, does it include a manual and can I activate and download it from members area? My computer does not have a dvd drive.

Re: Why excellent Polaris lost dull Stellaris

Polaris - this is a real 4X strategy. Stellaris - in each element of the gameplay has defects and shortcomings. Stellaris is not complete 4X strategy. But what I see after two weeks? Bought the game: 7K polaris vs 350K stellaris Playing the game: 1K polaris vs 40K stellaris Reviews: 143/66 polaris ...

Re: Is anyone else not liking the AI?

learn how the AI and races plays, as for ages now i haven't chased a single ship anywhere, not needed and tbh it's not how it was designed to be played either, fuel and space eg distance needs to be sorted and already has been by tech fuel isn't the issue, speed is, food isn't a problem as long as ...

Re: Odd Lockup at start of combat

I also experienced a lock up when I auto resolved combat for first time. It was not a hard lockup. It was more of an infinite loop somewhere in the code because the entire machine got slow, and mouse kind of disappeared. I had to bring up task manager, then kill the game process using keyboard only ...

Re: Is anyone else not liking the AI?

So my initial game is going like this. Expand to some stars. Some stars are too far away so I need to build special colony ships. Pirates show up. Deal with them. Purple ladies show up and we exchange embassies. The Drill show up. Go to planet, then say give it them. Declare war when I say no. I spe...

I view Stellaris as the same old paradox grand strategy in a new skin. I will still most likely get it at some point.

He said that most combat was autoresolved and that a lot of his time was spent chasing ships across the star map.

Curious about combat

I watched this review where he was quite critical, but ultimately said "Simple but fun". https://youtu.be/lV4lKq0gC24?t=40m33s But his comment on combat was that most of it automated, and you spend a lot of time chasing ships around. I was wondering if anyone could provide some additional feedback a...
