Speaking of "The Freaking Shakturi are Coming", how do you trigger that event? I have yet to get to actually fight them. I've gotten the World Destroyer, the history of who fought who and on whos side. The refugee ships, the refugee bases, found the "Way of the Ancients", etc. But they never show up.
Well, I'm gonna say it, but it'll be in Spoilers. Because this is a really cool thing to have happen if you DON'T know its coming! And since spoiler tags don't seem to work (or I can't figure out how to do them on this forum) I will just create a link to an image of a word document showing what I was planning on typing in spoiler tags (jerry-rigging the internet.. a valuable 21st century skill):
Spoilers and Stuff
I have never won this storyline. Never. I'm sure plenty of people have, but I find it incredibly challenging, on top of the fact that it only rarely shows up in my games (Victory Time Limit usually set to 99 years, Game Time Limit usually disabled).
I know I missed a ton of stuff, so if someone who knows more would like to elaborate more, by all means! Also, maybe some strategies for beating them.. so far I've not succeeded.
Nope the lost techs arn't part of any storyline not the original not the Shakturi.
Lost tech is allways found at the Ruins, you even get them whithout these storyline, its just randowm.
Good to know! Do you know if the government types are affected at all? It seems like when I play with Storylines off, I get the special governments (Way of Darkness, Way of Ancients) frequently, while I can't remember ever finding them once when storylines are on.
