firts, Sorry for my english, I'm French
First I want to congratulate the peoples who are working on this game, I'm playing it since it is out and I really enjoy it today it is for me one of the best 4x space empire game since MOO2.
I'm playing DW with the latest patch 188.8.131.52
In my recent game I play as the Human Alliance, in a galaxy of 700 stars and 10 other empires, but now we are 22 empires, due to some independante populations who decieded to join the big empires and rebellions.
All settings are set on normal, and I disabled space monsters.
Im in the late game, most of the empire are starting to be well developped, but I noticed that I'm overpowered and AI is in certain way dump.
I explain, in the early stage of the game, I discovered 3 locations with a lot of abandonned ships I immediatly decieded to send my constructor ships to the location and I managed to repair them carefully because of my economie, I repaired 18 capital ship, 10 cruiser, 10 destroyer, 3 fregate, and 2 Troop transporter I've done this very slowely (again because of my economie), but I never saw any other empire repairing these abandonned ships, this is why now I have the biggest army in the galaxy and the strongest, I just noticed than one allied empire has repaired a world destructor and I destroyed the other abandonned ships that I don't want to repair. My military score is 31409, the second in the graphic has 11405.
I have to much peoples in my empire, something like 176734M, the Ketarov (2nd in graphic) have only the half of that.
So I earn so much money that I have the best technologies of the galaxy because of crash research.
Population is growing toooooooo fast, is there a way to make it grow less faster (by modding a file or something like that)
I had to mod the game to add planetes to other empires to make them more challenging, but even by doing this I'm still overpowered.
This is my first real game, so when I finish him I will start another game.
I really enjoy this game a lot, but for the moment it seems to me that AI isn't very good.
I know that I can make other empires start with more planetes and better tech than me but I don't like doing that,, I want everyone to start at the same level, the early stage of the game is challengin, specially when you have an agressive empire next to you (I had the Dhayut confederation next to me) but it seems to me that I'm developping to quick for the other empire.
BUT they was a big empire of Securan, with a big population and the strongest army of the galaxy, they were stronger than I was at the time but now, this empire has been split in 3 other empire who have taken their independance.
For now I will wait untill the ennemie empires grow and see what will happen, I enjoy looking how they devellop, and make war with other empires.
