  2. Bombs revisted

    Yup i did that stuff on my last empire anyways
  3. Bombs revisted

    well unless the BOMB order is made functional soon research on MDD's of any type except to get the ground combat tac rating is best used on something else that is functional.
  4. Bombs revisted

    I went down the fusion line on bombs and got to 8th gen or 10th gen one i would have to look them back up the again the do wonder on drones against ships
  5. Bombs revisted

    The last time I emailed Pete about the bomb order was just over a year ago. Back then it was non-functional. Hopefully some progress has been made on this front
  6. Bombs revisted

    Well, in my experience one bomb is much the same as any other bomb, the higher the level the better and the more of them the better. Using enough of them will turn a planet into a cinder and kill off most all the population, but not the army. The planet is then pretty much useless to about anybody. There are a few that are required for more advanced techs, primarily for drones. The main use for MDD tech is for the ground combat bonus that you get. Many of these are the mental powers and are the only way to boost those numbers after the mental power itself. In my view the easiest one to research is the best one to go for if you are looking to BOMB your neighbor. For the GATK bonus you will eventually want them all. Construction costs are negligible as you won't ever need that many so it matters not if one is a bit easier to build or not. The defense is the same for all. Don't let ships over your worlds and you are safe. If that is not possible then you will want to build Planetary Shield Generators. I can't say that I have ever seen them do anything, but it could be that they were overwhelmed by the number of MDD's dropped. disclaimer... This is based on Andromeda data and experience. At present the BOMB order is not an option and only Pete knows if it will be making a return. I would like to see it in Andromeda but not Draco. Pete could have also changed the tech, given other uses etc.

    I guess both. On the one hand if it does not come back which path will lead to the best stuff? If the bomb order does come back which path is better?
  8. Bombs revisted

    Just to clarify... Is this question in hopes that the BOMB order will be working at some point or for other reasons?
  9. Bombs revisted

    I am wondering if anyone has any advice on what bomb path would be best?. What is the best defenses against these bombs?

  14. Game 99

    Seems to me that a wee little green dude tried to whisper some words of warning to the Czars. One should never forsake the friendly hand of the shamrock.

    What a phoenix? I thought Tunisia was long dead? Had to move my capitol due do para troopers falling out of the sky all over. Must build LDB and AA units all across empire. Czar of Russia
  16. Game 99

    It is so quiet in the Desert, so pleasant
  17. New strategy

    We ๐Ÿ‘ have stumbled onto a new strategy. Pretty simple actually. Here it is.... keep em guessin ๐Ÿ˜‚. No one except the Almighty Himself knows what we ๐Ÿ‘ are up to and we like it that way๐Ÿ˜
  18. Upest and angry

    Interesting title....upest is a word I am not familiar with . This will haunt me for the rest of my day now .
  19. Upest and angry

    Actually itโ€™s a valid concern. I for one donโ€™t want to see parts of the turn not printed. If it can be done for snail mail players while still keeping the email turns intact Iโ€™m all for it.
  20. Game 101

    Let me take serious moment to thank all the veterans and active duty personnel of all nations on this Veterans Day. A Sincere thank you. Now to the matter at hand and who wants to be the subject of the first Irish military action of this current war? Do I hear nominations? We Democratic ๐Ÿ‘ of this fine land are willing to give others a say in who we strike first ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Baaaaa and if you believed that second part I have this really nice bridge over the Irish Sea we want to sell ya. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I think those rabbits ate some bad nuke carrots this time
  23. Upest and angry

    Yes I think the proposed changes to not having various parts of a turn displayed doesnโ€™t effect email turns in the slightest as RTG doesnโ€™t need to print those turns. Only those that get actual mailed reports would benefit on both the sending and receiving ends. The problem I see is wether it can be done both ways to accommodate emailed and snail mailed turns.
  24. Upest and angry

    I guess I was predicting the upcoming changes. They seemed to be addressed to people that print their turns.
  25. Upest and angry

    Only person negatively affecting your gameplay is you. Maybe instead of rants and accusations, send an email to Pete informing him of what anomaly occured on your turn.
  26. Upest and angry

    Just a mistake on my part (human error). There's a utility that needs to be run to update that table for the results, and I forgot to run it. For email guys, I suspect that your databases have the researchable tech in the dropdown menus (for SRP orders), as the mdb files are created separately. Of course, only the newly researchable items added this turn would be different from last turn, so in most cases you didn't miss much on that (blank) page. Still, it's a nice page to have--it will show up again as usual next time. Pete
  27. Upest and angry

    I agree that we need researchable tech every turn. It's two pages at most, and can be down to one. I have used old turns data and mistakes get made. Not much savings in paper for the potential problems it can cause. IMHO Having said that, I do recall the occasional turn without something that was due to a technical glitch. I hope this was one of those and not the other thing.
