          "Your Planned economy is wrongheaded and inefficient,
          Foreman Pandemoniak, and stifles the just and proper flow of capital on this
          planet. I hope you will soon open your markets to a more realistic

          "Foreman Pandemoniak, such an idealistic society is commendable,
          but hardly achievable by a living creature. You need the
          suspension of biological imperatives before you can achieve
          true enlightenment. You should abandon your 'utopia' and seek
          a more practical solution!"

          I think this one's thought control... i'm just putting it here cause its funny not cause i like TC...

          "Foreman Pandemoniak, allowing this free-thinking society in the
          name of 'fulfilling your potential' is truly wrong-headed. The
          only way a drone can 'fulfill its potential' is by a wise and
          benevolent ruler telling it exactly what to do. I pray you will
          see the wisdom of this path soon."

            Pandemoniak is ignoring our transmissions.

              are undermining my efforts to bring my people to a greater
              power through the use of cybernetics. As long as your policies
              continue you are a threat to my plans...therefore, you must be
              eliminated. Vendetta upon you!"

                But of course, it depends on the faction, the stage of the game, whether you are currently fighting a war, what kind of war it is, ....

                  Howdy Spacecow,

                  I have an easier time picturing a Police State that values Wealth than a Thought Controlled Democracy. Personally, I've viewed Police State as either a psudo-fascist regime or a neo-feudalistic monarchy, both which value Wealth (if not Power) over Knowledge. The only exception in my mind would be Sheng-ji's über-communism (Police State + Planned Economy.)

                  Keep in mind this is all just personal intrepretation.

                    when are you going to close this and judge the winner? market has caught up to planned and cybernetic is almost even with eudaimonia.

                    "Do you tire of our Vendetta so soon, Foreman Pandemoniak?
                    I will call it off for nothing more than your
                    humble apology and 80 000 energy credits."

                      TKG, 80 000 is little, Deirdre wanted 191 000 from me in one game.
                      One would be a good time to close the poll! Demo/Green/Knowledge/Eudy, my choice of SE.
                      Cake and grief counseling will be available at the conclusion of the test. Thank you for helping us help you help us all!


                      • #56
                        geez, 191 000? i've never even had that much, let alone have the AI demand it! if i did have that much, the AI wouldn't be in a position to make demands. 'sides 80 000 is enough. just think how many X shard tanks i could buy with that! and you dont want to be running "eudy" when i do...


                        • #57
                          Eudy + Fundie allows the construction of elite units and gives +1 (int base tile) morale from Children Creche compared to a 0 morale setup.
                          Additionally you could buy 25% more shard tanks while running Eudy thanks to +2 industry.

                          Btw, my vote was for Green, but should have been FM, because I thought the poll was for your favourite combined SE settings, rather than your favourite from each field. In which case my preference is
                          No preference/ Free Market/ Wealth/ Eudo

                            Police Green Wealth Cybernetics

                            Police + Green + Wealth + Cybernetics =
                            +1Economy +2Efficiency +2Support -2Morale -1Police -2Growth +4Planet +1Industry +2Research.

                            Not that bad of a combination, really, if you play the kind of game into which it fits. It is a combination I use frequently as The Hive and shooting for specific Secret Projects, so I think it is a valid ballot.

                            Hive + Police + Green + Wealth + Cybernetics + Ascetic Virtues + Living Refinery + Network Backbone =
                            -1Economy +4Efficiency +6Support -2Morale +3Police -1Growth +4Planet +2Industry +2Research.

                            The -1Economy is no big deal: It's only -1€ at the HQ.

                            The -2Morale is easily countered by Command Centers (Command Nexus), Bioenhancement Centers (Cyborg Factory), and Naval Yards (Maritime Control Center).

                            With maximum Support, Police, and Planet, along with the +2Industry, you can send out swarms upon swarms of Worms, Isles, and Locusts.

                              Even though I agree with most of your policies, (even the CCCP in your sig), I must disagree with your rule of Planet. Foreman Domai only thinks he knows what is best for the drones, but the benevolent Chairman Yang truly understands the course that society must make in order to become a utopia!

                              Maybe you should join the (N)CPA?

                              Like I said before-

                              Police State/Green (Planned)/Knowledge/Thought Control.
