Hello,

So here is my actual game (lvl 5, 2AI, 80 systems, 0AIP over time) :

-Systems I don't use -> Turrets destroy spawning vessels.

-Raiders destroy Tachyons + Warp gates whenever it s possible.

-Special Forces Guard posts destroyed asap.

-Hacking: Just tried at Laudem (AI Command station still up, Fabricator Hacker), but nothing. I guess it's no more supplied by AI, so... can't hack ?
EDIT : No AI fabricator present, so.... Q ANSWERED




Does this look ok ?
Should I focus on something ?


Thanks for your help.

The command station is still up so hacks are allowed, but I don't see a fabricator listed on the unit list. A knowledge hack would probably work fine if you wanted to avoid capturing the planet, but there needs to be a fabricator on the planet for the fabricator hacker to work. Same goes for things like advanced factory hack, backup design hack, you get the idea.

Here it is.




Did I miss something ?
It's surrounded by my systems, so did AI "lose control" of it, even if Command Staion is up ?

As Regdren said, there's no AI fabricator present, therefore a fabricator hacker won't do anything at all.  What can a fabricator hacker hack if there's no fabricator to hack (hack!)?

Hmm, judging from the galaxy map, I think you're taking too many planets, but that depends in large part on what difficulty level you're playing on.

Other than that, I'd suggest not worrying too much, but if you find yourself struggling on defence, Kahuna's guide is around somewhere and is essentially dogma for how to reliably succeed against most problems.
