All Action Report
« on: June 10, 2013, 12:33:21 PM »
starting a new game off my very fist win this morning going to post setup threw defeat (i mean completelol). i'm hoping that my win didn't make me too cocky as it was level 7 with two starting systems and this game will be level 8 with 3 lets see how this goes.

Map & Ships
Setup Script                   None
# of Planets                   120
Map Style                      Simple
Cmpaign Type                Conquest
Seed                             1337174628
Starting Systems           3
Expansions Enabled       All
Avalible Ships               Complex

Game Options
Combat Style               Normal
Unit Cap                      Ultra Low
Performance                High
Visibility                      Full Fog Of War
Enable Cheats             Off
Show Unexplored        On
AI Options                 Zenith Traders
AI Plots                     Revel Random AI Types

My Role Normal + Champion

Going to start out by setting up all available turrets and shields to defend my home worlds. Then Produce all military units to start scouting and taking nearby systoms. This map offers a VERY nice three point choke though it will take 20+ hours or so for me to take them i think.. i will let you guys know how it all goes. i will take pics as i get key stages set up.

Multiple starting homeworlds cranks things up a bit, but it sounds like you're having fun anyway :)  I hope it goes well.  Well, actually I hope that you have fun, which may mean the game itself going very un-well ;)

8 HWs, or even 16 HWs, can actually make for a much easier game (Cinth routinely beats max-difficulty on 16HW, I think, because 16HWs is pretty unbalanced in favor of the player).  If you know what you're doing :)  And if your scenario permits a good solid chokepoint.  Better to get a few wins under your belt in lower-scale scenarios, though.
