Making Messari Tougher

If I enter Pandora -> Data -> World -> Operations Then I saw five xml notes in there saying Portal 0-4... If I copy paste them and increase the numbers by making Portal5.xml, Portal6.xml until I have like twenty of them then there will be twenty portals to squash? Because after the initial surprise ...

Re: Goliath Mech tech Missing

After High Velocity Projectiles. There is a branch from that to Planetary Bombardment but that doesn't mean there is no other branch possible. It is hidden now because you only see two techs ahead with your game settings but it will appear as soon as you research Analytical Dynamics. Oh well now th...

Re: Constant shortage

You need to plan ahead and concentrate on key techs. Minerals and Food buildings are in the first two rows of every era so don't get them too late. Also try to assign special tasks to your cities. A city next to obs should get a lot of field labs and concentrate on research. A city with Xenith or m...

Goliath Mech tech Missing

I've been noticing weird things, like in my current playthrough which got finished is missing Goliath Mech tech in the tech tree. And the game before it had the Area Aid tech missing but had the goliath tech present. Is this intended or unintended? If I missed it please point it out so I can learn. ...

Messari chose poorily.

Constant ridiculous shortages aside, I do specialize my cities but i still run out of resources so friggin fast. So I dropped from Very High Alien aggression and Very Hard AI factions and set both to medium because with bs resource shortage I no longer can compete anymore. Messari invaded, and set u...

Re: Maximum Map size

We changed them to deliver a more consistent experience. If you would like bigger ones you can change values in Data/World/WorldParameters.xml (after copying it to the user data folder as described in the read me). Uhh I'm not sure.. I just opened the world parameters xml in world folder and then c...

Re: Constant shortage

Growth was changed a while ago so that food shortage leads to smaller growth first instead of starvation right away when you drop below 0.0 food. That explains it! But what about constant food/mineral shortages until transcendence era? That is really fucked up now considering that messari will show...

Constant shortage

So uh I updated my copy of pandora few weeks ago and then for some unknown reason I was always out of food and minerals. I had surplus of exactly zero of both resources and somehow my cities keep on growing instead of starving until it became empty. I really dunno why that happened. It was only when...

Re: Teeny tiny maps

If you remove the huge map, then I won't update my copy of pandora until whatever update returns them. I hate small maps that much :P Oh and I discovered a interesting problem, when I suddenly expanded alot very fast with alot of new cities being built... My growth stagnated, taking 40+ turns to rea...

Boosted Alien Aggression 1.2.0

What's the point of doing that because I only really start clearing the fungus in certain places during mechanization era for better interconnection. At that point, any aliens that dare to enter my borders just go splat.

Did the aliens get buffed?

Re: nuclear standoff and other stuff

I don't rebuild nuked cities until the war is over.

And if any other faction think its' funny to steal formerly imperium Hexes.... They tend to get killed next by me.

Re: New Unique Faction Traits

How is TS weak? They tend to rush through mechanization era like madmen until they get their nukes built and set up very fast. They're always at 4-5 dots like divine ascendant for military.

If anything, Noxium and Torga tend to be weak and sit around with 1-2 star military with me at 3 very often xD

Re: New Unique Faction Traits

I'm not sure Militia is good idea because its more beneficial to let the enemy take the city for your counter attack force to take it back by force.... There's no population loss. But I like a bunch of suggestions posted in this thread as well. My suggestions: Togra University Battle Androids Strong...

Tyranids Mod....

A thought just occurred to me, Adding in Tyranids mod would be hilarious. In case you all don't know what I am talking about.. check out Tyranids from Warhammer 40k. It will be "interesting" to watch how the AI factions handle tyranids. I think it'll be good to wait until this game is fleshed out so...

Re: Does the AI gang up on you?

I should add in that I tend to have subpar military because I don't really upgrade from colonial era troops due to tech progression being very fast. Points where I upgrade is from Basic troops to Steel armor then i don't upgrade until Gauss stuff then it stays there until I reach Transcendence era a...

Re: Does the AI gang up on you?

I've yet to be dogpiled. Diplomacy system is super ez-mode in Pandora. Easiest I've ever seen.

You literally have to go out of your way to get dogpiled.

Re: Ideas for finetuning

That's good that OP listed that automated features should be optional. Because I dislike automation with sole exception of units on guard duty waking up when enemy unit shows up. That's the only automation feature I use in turn based strategy games xD

Re: Is there a defense against nuclear attack?

Sling nukes at units in fields, it will oneshot any colonization era units I believe. Toughest unit I have tested on is a goliath mech in neutral lands which got blasted in one hit from terra salvum.

However at cities with plenty of defenses and tons of population will laugh at nukes.
