Fallen Spire question
« on: February 04, 2018, 12:50:52 AM »
1. What would be an easy map type for Fallen Spire? Planning on playing on 4/4 AI difficulty because I'm a weak scrub.

I like Concentric for that, though it's not ideal since you'll generally have at least 2 entry points into your territory.

X makes it easier to keep it to 1 entry point, but bear in mind that to go all the way through FS you'll need to pick 5 planets (other than your homeworld) that are all at least two hops from each other, and they can't be "dead-end" planets (ones with only 1 wormhole).

Snake is a possibility, but it tends to be quite a slog because the AI always only has 1 entry point too.

Clusters, or the simpler Mazes, are also decent possibilities for 2-entry-point games.

4/4 should be pretty forgiving.

Concentric was my first successful Fallen Spire.

Just one more question. There are achievements for winning at different stages during the Fallen Spire campaign. I don't want to start over for each stage. Is it possible to save at stage one, win, then load said save and continue to stage 2, save, win, load the save and then win at stage 3?

Yep, you can get them all from the same game in that fashion.
