There will always be people who rip games... Maybe he will like it enough to purchase it.

Do not let that take away from the faq's main goal.

WHich is to help the community.

Started playing the game yesterday, ancient but almost unlimited possibilities and thanks to you i now have a manual(which was not included in my rip).

You are the man!!!

I bumped the FAQ to get this away from first page.
Nothing new included.

----------------------------------
To Piron:

Hi there.
This is such an awesome game, you will see that in a few days.
Then please support the author of it by buying it so that he can develop SPace Empires 5.
It's easy do buy it over the net. I live in Sweden and got my game a few days after I ordered it.
(Don't remember exactly how many days as it is quite some time ago now).

There is a free demo that can be downloaded aswell.
Please, don't spread pirated copies of this game around as it will take away the financial basis for a sequel!

There is always one in every crowd. I for one would be constantly posting question if not for the FAQ. I am always checking looking for updates and look forward to seeing them as I would waiting for a new book at barnes and noble's. You and slick are providing an invaluable service to many players, and by some Posts this is veteran and newbie players alike. Do not let one post in any way make you feel that the FAQ's are taken for granted or not respected.

I'm with tesco. We move forward with best intent!

There are all kinds of great things that are abused. But that never tarnishes the value of the great things, and all the hard work invested, personal satisfaction, and good feelings from helping out our mates.

That is the reward we already have received, friend.

don't worry about what your posting as long as it isn't cracking information. pirates are going to pirate until they get caught or there conseince bothers them to much. if you don't post, you might get a few more people to play the game, but there wouldn't really be a community to play with. if you do post, 95% by my guess where going to pirate anyway. lack of a manual was only an annoyence when i was doing that and never stopped me.

I agree, it's very easy to order the game over the net. I ordered the game on Thursday and I get it on Monday even so I live in Finland and I chose the slowest shipping method

First, the guy is less than a good player if he really needs the info in the FAQ to play the game. Most new players catch on really quick and only use the FAQ for specific info.

The FAQ is a tool, and like any tool, is intended to be used. Wether it was posted here, or else where, people, especially those who pirate, are going to get there hands on it.

I am not really mad at the guy who has the ripped Version of the game, I am angry with the jerk, oh my a flame, who ripped it for him.

AT your going to be upset with me as well.

I like to read the FAQ's As it is another manual for learning the game.

Sure you can jump right in and play.

But I always take the time out to read the manual and player faq's and do the tutorials.

That way I can decide if I want to invest a couple hundred hours of my time in a game.

he he

Cause 400 hours out of ones life is a huge chunk of time.

P.S. I only started playing the SE series for a few games while waiting for MOO3 and STAR2 Super Nova.

Damn time flies. I am still waiting.

Ok, new update:

- added section 17.3 courtesy of Stone Mill. (Stoney, had to kill all your smilies, the UBB choked after 8 of them)
- incorporated discussions in the FAQ thread from the Last update.
- added numerous new sections from summaries of recent threads here on the forum. Credit given to original authors, as always.
- added some brand new material sprinkled throughout.

Sorry for taking so long on this one, but the weather here has been too great to spend on the computer.

Slick.
