Yeah, sadly it started off nice but as I discovered more races they hadn't expanded hardly at all and hours into the game the Shakturi (sp) still only have 1 planet.
Is modding the game user friendly like with scripts etc? I can mod games with scripts but this new stuff it's like trying to work on a 2015 car vs a 57 chevy. I just don't understand it and really don't even want to try. Don't have that kind of time anymore, but, if it has simple modding ability I'll take a crack at it.
I find the AI doesn't expore enough the most. It always has less colonies than I do and hardly ever gets those neat lil toys like the Death Ray or Gravaton Super Weapon or those governmental doctrines Ancients and Darkness. If I can take those out or must make it where every race has the opportunity to use them at a cost I'll put that in.
One race is building a lot of ships like in the pictures but it's not doing anything with them. They are all just sitting at the home capital and I'm like +68 friends with them already. So, it's not likely they'll come after me. Diplomacy is really too easy. I always can get every race to like me even the bad guys as my income is always ungodly.
Perhaps if one forced themselves to play with everything on auto. You only can control the fleets and strike forces "during wars" and just deal with what the AI gives you. You can place your leaders and stuff too. That might be fun. But, having hands on it's just too easy on extremely hard. Was the difficuly made for an 8 year old or what?
I'll continue to play this one and see if it gets better. But, as it is now I can take out the Shakturi right now without any trouble. They hardly have any ships. Hopefully they will get in a war and take some of the other AI colonies and make a game of it.
It also would seem one should set up the games where all the races are Military Dictatorship an aggressive. All the good races want to do is ask for my help, me to give them all my rare resources and be BFF's . They do feed me money for free though. It's like every other minute one of them is sending me a gift of money.
One more thing I noticed about this mod is I had to design nearly every ship in the beginning. Is this suppose to happen? Now, the AI has taken over and is auto designing them but at first I only had explorers, escort, colony and construction ships. That was a pita to have to redesign all those other ships and I still have battleshps and carrier and energy ships to go. The ports were there alright thank the gods for that.
Anyways thanks for directing me at least you tried. I'ma try a game with all Military Dictators and aggressive and see what happens. I'll probably get stomped but at least it will be different.
