Re: What du you think why this game lacks popularity?

A few reasons: 1) Some players think this game is a "rip off" or a "copycat" of Alpha Centauri, or heck even James Cameron's movie Avatar. They don't understand how it works.

Re: Pandora First Contact Wiki

Without a detailed manual I found the game impossible to play and completely gave up on it. I think it heavily depends on what games you have played before.

Re: Pandora First Contact Wiki

Re: Can anyone offer some guidance to a rookie?

I understand your frustration. This game can be absolutely overwhelming. You stated that you feel that there's way too many tasks to be focused on at one time.
