Re: Ruins

For MP the number of ruins is ok as is. If there were any more then Terra Salvum (in the hands of experienced players) would be even more overpowered than it is already. Also the overall luck factor would be increased which would hurt MP. So I'd strongly oppose any suggestion to increase ruins.

Re: New beta feature, get Human player in your single game

Just to add this: If the game has already a human player for every living faction then every additional joiner will get an observer slot automatically (up to the maximal slot count of 9). We're using this for our MP games on civforum.de. edit: Two of us just saw your game and tried to join but the L...

Re: 1.2.4

For harvesting minerals best choose a mountain tile and build a mine first before you start harvesting. This way you will get 3 instead of 1 minerals per turn. Same thing with food and grassland tiles with farm. In the lategame you will end up on the fungus anyway. I think the credit and habitat imp...

Re: 1.2.4

For me it works. Another thing that works is the AI using formers to gather resources and it even seems to do it on useful tiles.

However, it can gather resources with formers before even researching the required technology which is probably a bug.

Re: Impression and Ideas 1.22

I think you should try the MP. Imho it is much more fun than the SP and the game seems to be aimed at MP much better. Also the fact that you don't plaster your empire with fungus in the lategame but only remove it seems to show you haven't got very far into the game yet. Ofc you can defeat even very...

Re: Rise of the Spitters

It is a MP tournament so we have no AI there. He rushed tanks and attacked right when the aggression already had started for the first opponent and he had to defend his second city because it was sieged by spitters. His second attack was launched when the bigger aliens started to attack the second o...

Re: Rise of the Spitters

From what I gathered in those two games it seems they behave very similar to the drones. Sometimes they attack, sometimes they move and sometimes they stay inside of the hive and do nothing. Although I have the feeling that they attack much more often than the drones. You can also get spitters campi...

Re: color of caption in operations window

They are grey because you can't use them as the other operations by clicking on them. Drop pods are used as specific order for units. If you give a unit the order to drop from space while having available pods one drop pod will be automatically used.

Re: Why is the Three Moves Ahead review not being discussed!

I totally agree to your comment about stacks of doom. In late MP wars you really can't put more than 4-5 units on a hex and not expect to get some kind of shit going down on that hex. You need to be very flexible and react quickly to every scan you hear. This adds something like an RTS-element to th...

Re: What's next?

I hope formers will be able to harvest only after researching a technology. Else this will mean Solar-Dynasty starts with 2 pop. Also the Empire's formers should get their maintenance cost lowered to 1 credit instead of 1.5. Else they will have a big disadvantage from this change. And if you're on i...
