HI all!
I have been enjoying Distant Worlds Universe for quite sometime. My normal setup was DW Extended, Extended AI and Das Chrome. I have recently started looking into RetreatsUE, UEII and UEI. That being said I have had a hard time understanding the differences between RetreatUE and UEII. My understanding of UEI vs UEII is that UEII is the next evolution of the UE mod set(UEII has everything UEI does but perhaps tweaked and adds new content?)... but what does the RetreatUE add to the mix? Is there a general sense for what mods or mod set are being used the most that give the most immersive and challenge play through? My goal atm is to keep much of the game play style i was used to intact(better AI, more races but still vanilla ish in feel) while adding the cool new tech tree and add some new level of challenge.

On a side note I did try to get the Bacon mod to work but received a random exception crash every other time i loaded and so removed it for the time being.

Thank you for your time,

Mathieas

RetreatUE is UEII with 5 more races, Better AI ship design, AI research scripting, and more small stuff. It plays a hard game and should be challenging.

Read UEII description here

https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3834204

I'm sure I added a readme for anything else. Remember RetreatUE is built on top of UEII so the UEII description is accurate (mostly).

I just lurk here mostly for DW2 news. I haven't played in years so I can't reliably remember the game anymore.

Thanks Retreat1970
I have read several posts here and there recommending your mod so I hope to try it eventually
I am still pretty much a beginner learning how to play manually
