Re: Missile and Ammunition

...please tell me that carriers that have fighters equipping missiles don't need to have multiple missile storage modules back on their corvettes in order to stay in the fight for more than two missions in the same battle. Some of my fighters are set for carrying 3 missiles which would allow only on...

Re: Regarding colony ships...

...that's what I thought too, but the computer seems to pick, at least in my case, the last design made which seems like the logical thing to do, pick the latest model, that is. My dilemma is that the early going is tough enough when it comes to steadily increasing build times and dwindling resource...

Regarding colony ships...

...does anyone know how the computer decides which ship is used in a 'Planned Colonization' when there are more than one design in that particular category. As an example, I designed both a long range and a short range colonizer in my game so that I could build colony ships faster(cheaper in resourc...

If you try to make a new prototype you will get a much degraded fighter than if you copy the flawed x-fighter template and modify that.

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

...wouldn't it make more sense for the tanker to never give away more fuel than what it takes to get back to the closest refueling point? Problem I have run into is that my scout ran out of fuel and has a larger fuel capacity than my tanker itself. I moved the scout as close to a refueling station/p...

Tanker question

Anybody having trouble making jumps with tankers when any of the escorted ships (corvettes in this case) have less than minimum fuel on board? I can't get my 4000 ton capacity corvette to jump a distance that requires 4260 tons even when accompanied by 5 tankers w/tanker modules and carrying 34000 t...

Re: Polaris Sector Fueling System.

I read the explanation above on how refueling ships are supposed to work, but in my latest playthrough, I cannot move a corvette with fuel capacity of 4000 tons to the next planet capable of fueling when accompanied by a freighter with refueling capability and 34000 tons of fuel on board. The distan...

Re: Suggested polishings based on early games

Another thing that would be nice to have is a list of those planets that are operating an orbital shipyard. This could be given a column in the spreadsheet option of the list of planets under the economic button. Does anyone know for sure how many factories you have to have before you can build an o...

Couple of Queries...

1) Where are the save game files located in Windows OS; 2) where are the ship design files located? I would like to purge some of my first attempts at designing ships so I don't have such a list to go through each time I start a new game. Thanx in advance! :?

Re: Messari portals

Actually I tried to use ranged fire on them with artillery (both land based and naval) but it either wouldn't fire when I right clicked or the unit moved with a mind of its own. Aircraft were useless too. Now that I think about it the land units captured without damage as long as there was no messar...

Messari portals

I tried looking it up on wiki (no dice), but was wondering why the Messari portals seem impervious to damage. Is their a turn/time limit before you can take them down? My units would not attack them for several turns, then I just walked in and took possession. Is there some kind of mechanic involved...

Depending on your anti-virus, make sure it is either off during the update or that the Pandora Installer is granted an allowed access by your anti-virus.

Re: Espionage [general discusion]

In my muddled mind, their discovery is quite random. The automatic centering of the screen to events when you end your turn ensures that they will likely remain unseen until they infiltrate their target city unless you only have one city or the centering event happens to be the city under infiltrati...
