Re: The Xenomorph Pheropod is too easy to get

There seems to be something weird about using that thing. I built myself some Xeno Troopers to capture some drones and after they had done their thing I tried refitting them to regular Colonial Troopers, which I've given the defensive device to. But for some reason the refit didn't work, which meant...

Re: I have a few questions

Tanks get + 25% when they are on plain, - 25% on forests and mountains Infantry gets + 25% on forests and mountains Hills doesn't give any bonus or malus. I see. I guess I can forget about putting my early cities on Hills then. I kind of assumed I would get some sort of defensive bonus for that, bu...

Re: I have a feature request

...I'd like to be able to place some markers on my map if I decide upon a location for some future city. Like the ones that Civ 4 used. I only played a bit of Civ 4, but in Alpha Cenauri I would place a "landmark" and name it something like "base" on squares that I wanted to remember to colonize. I...

One more thing...

You need to differentiate between actual Ocean tiles and inland water bodies. I noticed in a game that since I had a lake next to a city I could still build ocean vessels, even though they'd never be able to go anywhere.

The Xenomorph Pheropod is too easy to get

Sometimes I'll be able to use it after the very first alien I kill. It stands to reason that you shouldn't be able to pop it until after you've built the Xenology Accomplishment.

Re: I have a feature request

Maybe it was just the game I was playing, but that really wasn't an issue for me. By the time the alins were done with I had the continent all to myself so I didn't have to worry about maximizing my city placement. I could have it all. In fact, it was down to just two of us, with the entire planet p...

Re: maximum city size

Frankly, I find that the game has too many pop-ups all around. Like this whole praise/denounce thing. What is even the point in that? Yet in the game I was playing yesterday I was getting praised almost every turn. Enough already!

Re: I have a few questions

. All bonuses, if any, are listed in the chance of victory window when you ponder an attack. Well that's the point I'm trying to make. All you see is a broad Accuracy value, you don't see enough of a breakdown of where that number comes from. It would be good to know whether being on a Hill gives y...

Re: I have a few questions

OK, another question. Are there defensive bonuses depending on the terrain type? And if so what are they? OK that's two questions so sue me. I'm getting the impression that there are but unless I've missed something, I don't see them mentioned anywhere. I don't recall seeing any indicators of that i...

Something about Field Training I just noticed

I started a new game with the Imperium and proceeded to apply my free Field Training promotions. Afterwards I noticed that my starting unit was still only rank 3, when it should have been 4. Because of the restriction you've placed that a promotion is not applied if the health is below a certain poi...

Re: 1.1.9 feedback

, I agree AI must be more defensive if the pace is bigger. Well if my last game was any indication, I'd have to agree. Out of the 6 factions on a Huge/Marathon map, only 2 of us survived. Which made for a rather boring endgame, especially since the only remaining AI was on a different continent and...

Re: Complete Keyboard command list

That Explore shortcut doesn't work, nor is there anything you can click manually which is a bit of a pain. It would be so nice to be able to have some units just wander around on their own.

Re: I have a feature request

I try to put new cities at a distance of 6 hexes, not less (to have less share of resources) nor more (6 is the speed of planes to reinforce a town in one turn from near towns). I'm still trying to decide what the best distance is. In the last game I played, I was placing them 5 tiles apart, but th...

I have a feature request

I'm sure everyone at Proxy is familiar with the BUG mod for Civ 4. One feature it has, which would be very nice to also have in this game, is an overlay you can place on the map to show you the locations of any possible city sites. It can be a bit confusing with the hex system to figure out the best...

Re: I have a few questions

Oh yeah, I just thought of one looking at that morale thread. What's a good level of Morale to strive for, before you start taking penalties? I seem to be getting that warning message when I've reached 5, but I'm not sure what I should be lowering it to through the tax rate. BTW, it's looking like t...

You could always go ahead and install the beta. I've been trying it out and it's been very stable. There's some definite improvements over the official version.

Re: Is there a way to turn off the random techs?

It seems that most people who struggle with the aliens are having problems because they are applying strategies from other games. That's exactly what I was doing. I'm finding though, at least on Low settings, that 3 cities early on is doable. Though maybe I'll have to change that approach if I bump...

Re: I have a few questions

There are two ways. You can select the unit, then click somewhere else (so as to tell it to move). Well that definitely doesn't work with Formers, they won't move until they're finished with their current job. Or, when the unit is selected look for the icon that displays the current order. If you c...

Re: Is there a way to turn off the random techs?

Aliens are not too much of a threat when you know how to deal with them. In high alien settings you need to prioritize your research and beeline farm and mineral building(that will usually reveal where the tanks tech is), flame thrower, then rush to tanks and then towards an armor upgrade (2 or 3)....

I have a few questions

First of all, is there a Cancel Orders button somewhere? I can't seem to find one. I consider this crucial for Formers. I've lost several of them now to aliens because I couldn't get them to stop what they were doing and head for the nearest city. Better yet would be for them to automatically stop w...
