B'tai Hazra Posted May 12, 2008 Report Share Posted May 12, 2008 Hi, I've been pondering how to start the game and what strategy is the best. Both regarding builds and research. Building up the homeworld or starting new colonies? I'm not fully sure (and will probably not be even when I know my starting position) what is best here. Should i keep the HW "as is" and focus on quickly expanding to another world in order to make a second production base (perhaps in another system) or should I focus on the HW and try to maximise it's production before I start building new colonies? Weaponry or Horizon technologies? My first thought was to focus early on exploration techs (like survey sensors and then colonisation techs) but after reading some about the more aggressive empires I'm more inclined to focus on getting some weapon technologies in order to help defend myself when the time comes. Otherwise the first warships that I build will be obsolete before I meet my first neighbour. I've heard that the tech tree is huge and I guess there is plenty of opportunities to research on techs that is less important. Tips and hints would be helpful!
