    Good. We should post the following message when posting our turn:
    "The Federation is proud to announce the launch of our first satellite - finally we can see close-ups of Gaians dancing naked through the trees."

    Well - not so covert now.

    Here's Gaialand as revealed from our Hydroponic satellite:

    Well, we believe that they lost a colony pod to a mindworm (!!) in turn 2 or 3 or so, which gave them 2/3rds the potential of the rest of us right off the bat.

    Apart from that, I don't know why they are so behind

    Too much treehugging?

    More seriously, I have no idea. They were already like this when I joined the game. Must have been some serious trouble long ago or serious mismanagement all the time.

    A question:
    How come the Gaians (a building faction) having built the Weather Paradigm seem so underdevelopped (from what I see) compared with the other factions?
    Bases at size 3, land pods not popped, no visible terraforming...

    Is it just me or is it real? Is it a consequence of their war against the Hive?
    Something else?

    Sounds great. This project will nullify a big part of any economy advantage the others might have on us.

    I think we need it (to get to MMI and the Cyborg Factory) sooner than building the PDL and getting it that way

    (Altho I agree that we should go for the PDL as well as the CF - that way we'll at least keep current on techs that the others jointly share - effectively puts us in a better position than the Angels - they need infiltration on the 3 that have the tech - we don't with the PDL)

    So startt planning for an instabuild of the PDL in 2171

    Hehe, and I dropped writing a post about probe actions in preparations for getting Cyberethics a few days ago. I guess I should have written it after all. With our still weak economy, and a possible alliance against us (i.e. tech-starving) building, this sounds like a very good idea.

    Snoddasmannen, the use against the AI is to stop them from ever getting back in the tech race.

    Me like very much!

    The Plantary Datalinks are pretty cheap too as I recall, a fungal gin freight and an upgraded crawler or two should be enough and still leave us with plenty of ammo to build at least one more SP.

    I've never had any use for the PD against AI:s, but against 3 human factions it suddenly becomes very important.

    • We tell them we'll research Neural Grafting ourselves in two years, and ask whether they wouldn't be interested in a leapfrog.
    • We switch research to something else than Neural Grafting after receiving Cyberethics, and trade for it with the Gaians-Morganites later.

    I see (2169) that the Gaians have changed their research from Env econ (which they now have) to Neural grafting.

    I'm assuming it's a leapfrog with Morgan who gave them EE2 for them to change (although I could see biocenters being on their "must have" list for the moralle boost to ground troops and cycle boosts for mindworms, so they may have just discovered EE2 on their own, and changed. I doubt it, though)

    And speaking of which (the Gaians) - we still don't know much more than we did six turns ago:
