The first time I played against the AI, I tried to simply focus on building cities, thinking "OK, I just have to build five cities to win Actually, things were going fairly well until I sent a video threat to the humans. I was playing as the Cyth, the stoic elder race. Shortly thereafter, troops of little humans came bursting into and capturing one of my favorite territories.
Needless to say, I was quite aghast. After all, I was just poking a little fun at them. This race to colonize was more serious than I thought. Next time I threatened, I would make sure I could back it up with some muscle. Eventually, though, I discovered that you could greatly improve your chances against hostile races with a little planning. Most importantly, you must choose a landing spot wisely when you first touch down on the surface. I found it best to choose a site where your first territory would be the only one touching the lands between yourself and the competition, but also where you could expand to lands "behind" you, creating sort of a bottleneck effect.
This way, your weak territories are not vulnerable to invasion. Still, even when employed, this tactic does not assure victory -- not all maps allow this type of planning, so it is not a fail-safe way around the AI by any means. The aural key for a strategy game that potentially lasts hours is to have sounds that add to the game's "suspension of disbelief" without becoming noxious.
I have been trying for 2 days to play. Please fix, or refund account. Thank you. Originally posted by ownederdjones :. Last edited by Nykira ; 1 Mar, pm.
Bullishbat View Profile View Posts. I, too cannot play this game. Even tried inserting my old disc as others have said it works, but for some reason the game is not detecting the disc in my drive and will only let me play the demo.

So, if you create a new empty file somewhere with a. SAV extension using Windows Explorer outside of the game, you can then browse for that file in game and select it and save over it. This will open the xml report in a new tab.
