I have been playing the game for a while now and there is certain aspects that a like to keep a close look. Where the ruins are, how my empire is doing, what about my navy, and before i tackle an enemy empire, what that guy have and where.
So, i made this little simple printable "control sheet" to fill while playing.
Obviously is a lot of min-max, pause and writting down, but hey, i like it.
Is a 6 pages long .doc file and i usually only use page 1 & 3, until a war is near when i print page 5
Galactic Survey page 1-2
Empire Progress page 3
Military Power page 4
Intelligence Report page 5-6
I hope is of some use.
