richardjohns Posted October 8, 2017 Report Share Posted October 8, 2017 I have noticed some interesting comparisons with races with no saved points and those with high research bonuses. 1st a brain in a jar easily passes the saved point person. 2nd Generation doesn't do that much and doesn't give a head start really. I am already being passed by worlds half my age and I have lots of exploration ships. 2nd a brain in the jar starting on a cold world will get lots of ideal worlds requiring no special items to get. 3rd A new brain in the jar with no saved points one year old will bypass a ground pounder and colonizer of over 1 1/2 to near the start of the games hands down. There is no way to catch up at all. Since breakthroughs and exploration stuff barely does anything in Draco brain in the jars rule. 4th a ground pounder with a cold based world will be able to stay paced with the colonizer. 5th There is a false rumor going on that using technology for colonization will be cost prohibitive. It barely makes a dent when you colonize the asteroid belts. 6th Should I save points? Only if you did not start on a cold world. You really don't gain much. My second empire should bypass my 1st empire in about year with 6 saved research points. What do yo all think are the brain in the jars too strong with the idea lets give everyone free ideals if they live on a cold world? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
