  • What are your standard options?

    What options do you guys use in your games? Rules, I mean.. And do any of you do the micromanagement thing for your ENTIRE empire? How do you manage that?

    I play random faction, against random Ai factions, on huge random planet, random geography, average native life, pod scattering on, random events on, double blind research.
    I don't use governors, and I don't set formers on auto (they act to stupid if not controlled by the chief himself ).
    I don't upgrade crawlers, and I don't overbuild secret projects, but I regulary use pod-booming to develop my headquarter (I like to have big bases, and with double blind research, hab complexes come very late).

    I agree that micromanagement can be a punishment for one who killed his own mother and father in this games where You have 150 bases But on the other hand, I like to have things under my control, and governors of automated former do to much silly things.

      I use all the victories except Co-operative and...yes...shameful though it is, I use Accelerated Start. Everything else is turned off.
      I always micromanage all my formers, because like everyone says the automated ones are so thick you might as well just drop em in a handy ocean, but I can never be bothered with base micromanagement so I use the Governors, dumb as they are...
      Yeah, yeah, i know, there is such a thing as overdosing on IoDs and transports, but occasionally they do good...
      "Love the earth and sun and animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown . . . reexamine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency" - Walt Whitman
