Game Freeze

Hi,

I am running the game using Windows 10 on a Yoga laptop. I am early in - 30 something planets, and have met 4 races. When I encounter a Terran planet, the game freezes. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions?

Yes, I am up to date on the latest patch.

Re: Battle Question

Hi, It is good to hear that things did not change. Yet, still I have a problem. I think the program is not recognizing my right mouse button - I can select a ship, but cannot give it anyplace to go. This is not the way it was before. Note, I have a newer computer, an "upgrade" to Windows 10, and I d...

Re: Battle Question

Perhaps I am getting closer.

If it is true that I can influence the movements of ships during battle, how do I? it used to be you could select a ship and then create a course for it to follow using the cursor. This no longer seems to be true.

Re: Battle Question

Thank you.

A follow-up:

Once the battle is started, do I have any direct control over ship movements? Can I, for example try to get those on the wings to come closer?

Re: Battle Question

I am on the attack.

However, I was previously able to move units even when defending.

Battle Question

Hi, I have come back to the game after a bit of an absence. This led to an update which resolved a prior question about display. But, it raised a question about combat. Before, when a battle started, I could first organize my fleet into a formation, and then direct the movements of each ship. Now, I...

Migration to Windows 10

Hi,

I just acquired a new machine, and ended up on Windows 10 in the process. I installed Polaris Sector. However, when I try to run it, I get a vastly blown up screen - it lists POLAR across the whole screen, and there is no way for me to navigate to any menus.

What should I do?

Multiplayer Suggestion

Hi, I note that, when I consider, stepping up to a challenge, the side of the challenging player is listed as Side A, or Side B. Understanding the meaning of this requires that I previously knew which side was A or B. That is rather inconvenient. Could the actual playing nation, e.g., Carthage, Pers...

Re: Multiplayer Suggestion

Agreed,

this is a suggestion on a technical support issue. Is there a better place to post these? I have another to float.

Re: FoG II vs FoG (U)

Hi, I am in pretty much the same boat as the previous caller. FOG 1 was fine, but there was room for improvement, and FOG U offered some of that, so it seemed like a way to go. I am at the current FOG U production version, and it has flaws that make it unwelcome - the inability to zoom and the stran...

Re: Factories

Hello Ufnv, This is helpful - as always. However, you have opened the door to a followup question. It is clear there are limits to the facilities on planets. However, it is not so clear which types are in competition for a given slot. You say that if i destroy a factory, that would allow another min...

Re: Factories

Dear Ufnv, Yes, it is clear, and understood, that factories take up more space, and now I know they are helpful in production. Imagine two planets: 1) I build organics mines one after another. 2) I build a factory, and then build organics mines, one after another. The two planets are equal in every ...

Re: Factories

OK,

More factories improve ship production. This makes sense.

What about production of new mining and other resource extraction facilities? Does having a factory make these get created more quickly? Ditto for farms and research centers?

Re: Factories

Hi Ufnv, Now I am confused. You say, to have a good production facility, you must devote an entire planet to factories. But you also say a factory adds nothing to productivity. How does having a dedicated planet provide benefit? Also, why, when I build a ship, does construction time vary widely from...

Factories

What are they good for?

Yes, I know that if you have 4, you can build a shipyard. Is there anything else? It would seem reasonable that having these would speed production of ships, and of other facilities. Does it? If so, by how much?

Cancel the issue.

I thought I was on the latest version, but was not. Updating allows the scenario to go forward.

Great.

Then I will upgrade as soon as I finish a couple of ongoing games.
