For new players I'd like to present an After Action Report based on my currently preferred settings for a "fun" game. I'd encourage sharing of ideas from experienced players also.
• Normal Empire Age of Shadows
• Irregular, 1400 Stars, 10 x 10 Sectors
• PreWarp Expansion, Extreme Difficulty, Difficulty Scales Near Victory
• Restless Aggression
• Very Many Pirates, Nearby Distance, No Respawn
• Many Space Creatures
• Expensive Research
• Occasional Colonies, Scattered Independent Life
• Ikkuro, Democracy
• Excellent Homeworld, Starting, Pre-Warp, Normal Corruption, Centre
• 19 Empires, Excellent Homeworld, Pre-Warp
• Victory Threshold reduced to 75%, conditions reduced to 25% for Territory, Population and Economy
• Biases file changed for Ikkuro only e.g. Bugs really hate me (set to -40), Neutral races dislike me (i.e. 0's become -20's) and races that were slightly
friendly now slightly dislike me(i.e. 5's become -10's).
• All AI Policy files changed to build a lot more large ships ... hopefully!
Feel free to discuss in the thread anytime.
