Yet another Fallen Spire Question
« on: May 07, 2018, 11:39:53 PM »
Is there a minimum intensity that Fallen Spire has to be set at to get the achievements for it?

If the achievement doesn't specify "Must be at least Intensity X" then you can probably use whatever you want.

I'm asking because I just beat the game with what i thought was the requirement for this achievement(see below) on 4/4, intensity 1. I kinda forgot about the Fallen Spire until the last home-world, built the refugee outpost at the last second, and won with no achievement granted. Do I have to build all 5 cities for it ,but not build the Galactic Capitol?

Win a game with the Fallen Spire minor faction enabled after allying with the refugees but before building the Galactic Capitol.

You had to finish surveying to find the shard that would give you the first city, not just build the refugee outpost.

Well, I just played all the way to the end where the Spire Military owns the AI home-worlds and I got zip for it. I know I didn't use cheats either because right at the end I got an achievement for 5,000,000 points. Maybe one of my settings?

AH HA! I knew I wasn't insane. https://forums.arcengames.com/ai-war-classic/fallen-spire-no-capitol-exo-extra-final-shard-also-spire-archive-placement/msg125084/#msg125084

As a related curiosity, I didn't receive any achievements for finishing the campaign (i.e., "the Spire personally wished the AI the best of luck with its future endeavors" one) --- is that related to the minor faction level? If so, will it work for a level != 4? Just want to ask before I commit to my multi-HW redux with Exos, Hives, and Adv Hives at 5 --- hundreds of Hives outside my homeworlds is a bit... disconcerting.

It works if FS is set to >= 4; if yours was and you don't have the achievement, I can take a look at a save from just before winning to make sure it triggers properly.  You should get an achievement for winning that way (or any FS way, really, unless you already have the achievement).
