Re: I'm here - introduction

As far as interrupting supply lines, enemy action will do that. AI ships or wandering monsters that bombard a key system in the supply chain can disrupt it. Sounds good. And it works the other way around I take it? Disrupting enemy supply lines is quite fun in other games, so I hope it has an effec...

Re: I'm here - introduction

Supply lines are important especially for colonization. Some of the Construction techs extend supply. It depends somewhat on the type of galaxy you select. I like to play cluster, and that is prone to gaps that need to be overcome. So it is basically just the infrastructure of your producing planet...

Re: I'm here - introduction

Thank you both, MatGB and defaultuser , for coming back with very useful tips. I read through the links (posted above by defaultuser) and see now where I did my "wrong" choices early in my first playthrough. But, hey, some cars can also be driven incorrectly without reading the manual! :lol: (I star...

Time to start my first-i...

Re: I'm here - introduction

Thanks for warm welcome. Also, I will take your advice defaultuser and explore the techtrees in more depth, especially the "growth" category. It is naturally as it should be, I just must find a balance between exploring/finding suitable colonies and developing my homeworld. I will have a look at you...

I'm here - introduction

Well, since I could not find an "Introduction"-section, I'll just post a line here. Discovered FreeOrion about 6 months ago, took some beating testing it out and just now returned after being annoyed Spacecom lacked the save feature. I liked the simplistic concept of Spacecom and when looking at Fre...
