RE: Advice on tech 3 start - early city conquest or not?

I suggest not giving up. The game is challenging, yes, I agree. I dumped a fair amount of good starts after something went south myself.

Tiny_frog, do you stream? I'd be happy to help and counsel if wanted.

RE: Advice on tech 3 start - early city conquest or not?

Are your structural design values any good?

Did you raise recon to 400 before attacking with the good units?

Is the OHQ/SHQ commander any good?

RE: {1.10.04 steam version] Unexplained loss of credits

I had a decision unresolved to pay 300 cCredits to the militia and it seems that that got done by my secretary, emptying my treasury, as the leaders got a -1 relation for not getting paid but a +3 for support of the militia.

{1.10.04 steam version] Unexplained loss of credits

It is turn 7, I had 187 credits in bank at end of turn 6 after a food sale and now the game says in Empire Dashbord I have 0 (-187) and the Treasury cashflow overview doesn't explain it either.

Seems like a bug to me.

RE: Armor Mix

Cheaper, but with an attack malus because they lack a turret. Better have a different medium tank iteration with a HV gun.

RE: What's wrong with my leader?

Is that leader in line with your government decisions or actively opposing it? Aa democracy -- leader when playing democracy e.g. is just a pain the behind. What are his profile preferences, and how is his faction dealing with you, happiness matters a lot.

RE: Landscape & Agriculture

open sky agri assets slowly terraform the hexes in a two hex radius to agricultural fields, boosting the food output by 10% each. You need the appropriate water supply and temperature range, though.

RE: No higher lvl capability leaders

<r> Having a dedicated oratory/interrogation advisor and the spare PP - that is the difficult part with meritocracy! when you have lots of zones - to utilise him helps putting down unrest events. I often just take the +20 unrest option if I otherwise would kneecap my meritocratic profile.<br/> <br/>...

RE: No higher lvl capability leaders

<t> Playing Meritocracy with the democracy shift in midgame, I have experienced a lot very good cap IV and V leaders.<br/> <br/> There are other options to get cap IV+ leaders somewhat consistently. One is the rare 4 FP Sage card that gives you a cap IV+ researcher (I found one with INT 88 once), th...

RE: Bottleneck Between Hexes

You should block all but pull points to Elko for starters, it seems to me as thousands of points go to a single asset. Maybe you clicked the wrong traffic sign button to the north?

RE: Add a modifier to Recruit XYZ rolls

The recruitment card mechanics are pure RNG. Could you point me to the manual chapter you refer to? Meritocracy gets a bonus to leaders, at 90+, IIRC.

Add a modifier to Recruit XYZ rolls

<t> Hello Vic and forum!<br/> <br/> AS Zgrssd confirmed in another thread, the recruit rolls are pure random, so a good interior does nothing in recruiting suiting leaders, which is a bummer and unrealistic. <br/> <br/> I suggest adding a modifier to recruit rolls in relation to the leadership/admin...

RE: Tank balance

Maybe your opponent has armor optimisation researched, making his units lighter. You can look that up in the regimes tab if you have enough recon on them or are allied.
