    Oh, didn't know that interesting bit! Thanks for the tip... Right now I'm at a bit of a culture bottle-neck... Just need to wait a few more hours 'till I can add another planet. Lol, things will get interesting when war breaks out between me and the other guy in my star system... I'm just hoping I'll win over him... My extra 8% production sure does make a nice surplus of points though, so I'll see what I can do. How's everyone else holding up?? I'll have to post my levels later...

    I am donig fairly well, my culture will go up again around 4AM so I will be up to 7 planets, already have transports in orbit to take it.

    Cuture is a bottleneck you are going to be facing for quite a while, I have been facing it since I tried to build my first colony ship.

    I will give you a hint on how to deliver a decisive blow to your enemy... watch his log in times for a week, if for instance, he goes idle for the entire weekend, launch your fleets next week when you think he has gone idle for the weekend, hopefully you have enough speed to arrive before he comes back on monday, by then, you will either have invaded his worlds or put the kibosh on his fleet/battlestation. My reccomendation, even if your not able to colonize yet, sige his worlds, knowck out his star system and keep throwing ships at it so he can't just 'buy' a vast armada of defensive ships... if you control space above his worlds, you control him, and you don't even have to hurry to conquer him, you can just take your time and colonize in the system, chances are he will give up and resign.

    Hm, here's the situation for me, there are a total of 3 other people in my star system, only one of them has to be worried about. This player, he's probably better off than me- His highest tech is one level higher than my highest, though, he doesn't have many star bases, in fact, most of his planets have none. I just sent 9 destroyers to have a poke and see if I can get some sort of reaction. He seems to have a pretty good head start over me... I've got a population growth and production bonus, so I'm hoping I can play my cards right as I get my 5th planet and get an upper hand, maybe start by eliminating some of the smaller players in my system and taking their planet when I can. Hm, I suppose for now it's just a game of cat and mouse. So, is anyone else using a customized race? I made mine on kind of a guess and check basis, but it sems to be working O.K. I'll post my race stats some time...

    I went with the canned race, figured I would learn to play just 'flat out' this time.

    Something to think about as far as tech goes. his highest level may be one higher than you, but he may be investing all his research into one field, so that may be a 'misnomer'.

    I would send transports and destroyers to every planet he has that doesn't have a starbase, beat them back to one pop point and cripple him for life.

    remember that starbases are very cost effective defense, so avoid his primary world for now. beat on the ones that dont have bases, and just keep expanding... I wish you weren't so friggin far away, I would come beat the crap out of him for you, I have over a 100 destroyers twiddling their thumbs in orbit right now.

    See, I figured that could be the case- but you need to remember that in order for him to get to 11 so soon (playing since the 11th), he may have started out with a lab bonus or something. My scout fleet will be arriving there shortly. He REALLY doesn't have much in the way of starbases, his home star has 2 of them, but they are relativly cheap so they could spring up on me just before I get there. That's a good thign for 2 reasons though, it probably means that he has spent more time on econ/destoyers so if he does attack, I have plenty of starbases for him to content with. Second is that if I launch attacks on several systems at once -as you suggested yourself, even- he'll be in trouble because he'll either need to divide his fleet of destoryers or waste a cripple himself by needing to buy starbases in the last second. I'll let you know how my scouts faired when I get back from dinner. Oh, and I'm gonna make a 2nd post and give you my race stats...
