I did not get the "initial download" of the Hive map . . . In an example of the fickle AI behavior, the Hive broke pact with me on initial contact. Onmy first move I decided to bring my eastern intelligence unit to the west of the Hive empire-- I was thinking that two such units would be more effective working in tandem.Originally posted by vyeh
Did you ever find out whether the first download from the Hive showed The Holy Fire?
Anywaym my intell unit ran into a Hive unit, and they asked to speak to me-- with no preliminaries at all they ended pact and all my units in the north came back home. While it made operations in the south that much easier, it meant I didn't get the Hive map immediately and my game was quickly quite different from yours
Oh the Hive pacted back with me like 2 turns later so I don't know what their issue was
Not that many.Originally posted by vyeh
How many turns did it take?
