Re: How exactly do you get fleets to warp in formation.

hm, don't know, it could be either that this is supposed to be for defense otherwise it's a bug.

Re: How exactly do you get fleets to warp in formation.

I didn't try this module out, but do all your ships in the fleet have this module?
I believe each ship in the fleet needs to have this module, and maybe even a fleet needs to be fully composed/complete so that it can form predefined composition on attack.

Re: AI seem to colonize slowly

I watched a gameplay on youtube once regarding this problem, and the guy explains that very well, we need to set up a game without logans (that is 9 races in total), and maximum 350 stars. logans are far more aggressive and expansionists, compared to other AI's. it is also possible to play as logans...

Re: How exactly do you get fleets to warp in formation.

very hard to understand your question, can you explain your problem in a bit more detail? From what I understand, you need to put all your ships into a fleet, and then link the fleet with desired fleet composition you created beforehand. linking a fleet is done on galaxy map with the fleet selected....

Re: Use of corvettes in later game stages?

This is probably more of an AI weakness than anything, but I've found it's pretty easy to avoid ships with EMP weapons while picking off the others, then bring in the capital ships to clean up what's left. I ended up cutting EMP protection from my fighters altogether in the game I finished over the...

Re: AI seem to colonize slowly

I can accept the AI slow colonization to some extent but what is even worse than that is one AI colonizes say 16 planets while the other colonizes only 3. this discrepancy between the AI's really hampers the overall game since those AI's that colonize too few planet will lose the game very soon and ...

Re: Use of corvettes in later game stages?

I second that, indeed why loading carriers with interceptors while you can load them with more fighters. in addition to carrier space and mostly same loadable weapon types as fighters, interceptors also have almost the same amount of hull points as fighters, only slightly more. If a player really wa...

Re: AI seem to colonize slowly

You are correct, I dislike this too, the colonization AI is really slow grabbing new worlds. for most recent game version this is true for all difficulty levels except hard AI. It depends on your play style but on Hard difficulty it expands too fast for my taste for me to catch up with the AI consid...

Re: Does AI cheat all time ?

This is incorrect. I've caught the AI cheating quite egregiously on challenge difficulty. I often have sabotage ships running perpetual missions on border worlds, destroying surface buildings to earn XP (you basically can't even attempt to steal techs until two stars, and it takes A LOT of missions...

Re: Does AI cheat all time ?

Sending a recon to enecmy system , showing 300 fighters + 4 bases tier 1 . Sending fileet to them and suddenly see 800 + figters and this is a problem for almost any fleet. disinformation or cheat ? Both the AI and player can provide false data to espionage efforts of each other, most like your spi...

Re: Production Frustration

OK, I see your point about farms-factory vs factory-farms ratio, and that's is 100% true from my xp too, but science labs do not find their place in this bipolar approach. Bipolar because mines count as factories (1 mine = 1 factory), so ve can safely conclude mines to count as factories, so only sc...

Re: Battle Control Frustration

The formation is then displayed at the destination location, but it is reoriented in an undesirable direction, even if I just told it to move straight ahead. How do I move a formation across the battle map and control the facing of the formation at the destination? What I do to have good formation,...

Re: Production Frustration

One factory blocks 12 farms. One mine, 7/8. Lab I don't remember. Lab, factories and mines are roughly 1:1 ratio, it must be rounded because from time to time it's 1/1 and if you destroy more it becomes 1:2 (1,5:1 for mines/factory would match for their farm equivalents). First factory blocks 12 fa...

Use of corvettes in later game stages?

Have you guys find any meaningful uses of corvettes once you research frigates and destroyers? It feels kind of bad design that corvettes are so much useless later in game. I would love to have ability to assign some special role to corvettes within fleets but they are too slow to move with big frig...

Re: Production Frustration

I absolutely agree with you! I really hate when when I need to destroy both orbital and standard science labs to make some room for farms, just to figure out that after destroying 10 science labs and 2 orbitals I gained no space for farms :D A workaround for this issue is to quick save the game, des...

Firing arc for Torpedoes and Missiles?

In Ship designer firing arc for both torpedoes and missiles shows 360° capability (unlike other weapons), on both upper *AND* lower decks ! but it looks like this doesn't hold true in tactical combat, where only upper deck allows 360°. While for lower decks I'm having hard time to figure out whether...
