Re: ETA of 1.44 to PBW?

I have heard that there is a small update for Balance Mod 1.08 that fixes a bug between it and SEV 1.44, involving militia numbers (where colonies were getting huge numbers of militia in defensive...

Re: How do you play your SE game?

The only time I play solo is to test a tech out, or otherwise experiment. For actual game play, though, it's only MP for me right now, simply because I'd rather be beaten in a competetive game...

Re: SE5 Space Background Poll

I like it off. The background gets in the way. It's not really that bad, though, so I could go either way.

What IS bad, though, is the background in combat. That is something I wish I could...

Re: Christmas break SE5: anyone for 1v1?

Game is up. I didn't enter you manually as a player in the game because I I did not want to assign you an empire name.

I've never started a PBW game before. Hopefully I won't mess anything up,...

Re: Christmas break SE5: anyone for 1v1?

Cool, I'll get it started on PBW either the night of the 25th or morning of the 26th.

Looking forward to this.

Christmas break SE5: anyone for 1v1?

I'm off work from 12/23/06 through at least 1/1/07. While I won't be camped in front of the computer the entire time, it does seem like an opportunity to get involved in one or more games against...

Re: Request. Actually, more of a suggestion...

Exactly my point. The AI is already at a disadvantage against a thinking opponent, to begin with.

Again, I'd be willing to try it, but it seems to me that it gives the attacker a potentially...

Re: Request. Actually, more of a suggestion...

I've heard an argument against such a feature that actually makes some sense.

Basically, it's easier to formulate a more challenging AI with warp points. An AI can more easily recognize choke...

Re: Getting fighters out of planetary cargo

Santiago must have it right. Too many "fighter cannon fodder" combat reports.

Getting fighters out of planetary cargo

I can't seem to reliably get fighters where I want them to be.

Once they are in space, I can move them around a solar system. That isn't a problem.

The problem comes when I'm trying to do a...

Re: Is Mp Just Completely broken?

Actually, that may not be true...Phoenix-D and I have been in a PBW Balance Mod 0.99 game for about the last week. Seems to be working fine so far (up to turn 50 as of this moment).

Background image in combat?

Is there a way to turn off the background image in the combat environment? All those stars sometimes make it difficult to see smaller ships and/or fighters.

For now I've been activating the...

Re: quiet forum...

OK, I uploaded. 2000 race points, zero starting tech point. I'll likely do most of my turns in the evenings or early mornings (US west coast).

Do players in SE games agree to certain "rules"...

Re: quiet forum...

Balance .99 sounds fine. As of yet I can see no way to upload my empire file. I assume another button or other option will become visible when I'm able to.

Re: What Is More Important To You?

Gotta be the gameplay. My imagination can fill in the graphics if needed.

Why else would I still be spending large amounts of time playing MOO2 online, a game that was released in 1996?

Re: quiet forum...

I'm thinking Balance Mod. A 1 vs. 1 game in a small quadrant with minimal AI empires might be best for a first game, to get a feel for things.

But I'd be open to just about anything...I just want...

I should probably let Thomcat answer that, but the question was a response to my post. I hope this doesn't violate etiquette.

Yes, TC's avatar is from MOO2.

I am not knocking a PBEM/PBW game pace in the slightest. I plan to play it, and I think I will enjoy it.

However, having played online MOO2 for the past 8 years, I have to disagree with your...
