- Economy: 35 (+784)

 

Rushes executed:

- upgrade 2 plasma garrisons in for 2x50EC

 

2224-start

 

- a Believer missile killed one of our foils in Sea Hive

 

Chairman Yang came talking obstinate.

He demanded that we attack Lal. We refused.

He demanded Monopole Magnets for truce. We refused.

Vendetta continues.

 

- an F13 resisted an attack by Hive fusion penetrator

- an F13 resisted an attack by Hive chaos penetrator

- our fusion tactical has stolen an Alien Artifact from Hive (!?!)

- a University chaos copter died attacking the AAA defender in Fecundity Tower

- The Cloning Vats has been completed.

- We have switched to Power for 40EC.

 

Mart: I let you do diplomacy with Colonel Santiago.

 

OPERATION RAINING STEEL Planification:

 

- mindprobing of Fecundity Tower (if enough money)

- taking of Socialism Tunnels by land attack

- taking of Deep Community by sea

Making Santiago submissive was not that easy. We had to show a bit more strength in our overall diplomacy, then she agreed for Pact.

 

diplomacy with Santiago:

MY 2224

When contacted, Santiago demanded Bioadaptive Resonance, but our answer was that her faction is no longer significant.

We proposed Pact but she refused.

We threatened crushing her faction and Santiago became submissive.

We are now in Pact with Spartan Federation.

 

Our commerce went from 256 to 333! That is a lot, such pacts even with much weaker faction are very beneficial for us.

 

Another issue:

Aid program for Spartan Federation

 

- I would propose donating to Santiago several formers. We would need to make some.

- Technologies, my probing showed, that she wants first Bioadaptive Resonance then Organic Superlubricant, but third is Advanced Spaceflight. Can we give her that?

Good job!

Then I'll let you decide when to stop against Yang by submitting him.

We can at least give these 2 first techs. Giving plasma shard depends on the ability of Miriam to steal it or not.

Formers will be made and sent after the Living Refinery has been finished.

- Nwabudike takes Deep Community and 22EC

- skimship probe team mindprobed Fecundity Tower for 588EC and took 16EC. Probe is safe.

- F13 killed the Hive probe team

 

Chairman Yang came talking obstinate.

"Your forces are formidable, CEO Morgan, and I see I was unwise to test your patience. Allow me to pledge blood truce and make amends." (Aha, being more realist, uh?) We refused.

Vendetta continues.

 

- fusion tactical killed a Hive 3r-transport with infantry and rover on board.

- drop silksteel garrison takes Socialism Tunnels and 26EC

 

Yang came talking obstinate.

"Fighting among the two of us will only allows the others to grow stronger. We should pledge blood truce before we destroy one another."

"It is you who will be destroyed, Chairman Yang!"

Vendetta continues.

 

- we have raised 4 land tiles, making Port Yang much more defendable

Re Aid for Spartan Federation

 

Actually, I see, AI is not very good with the terrain Spartans have. I think it is our formers that need to do the job, I now see several Spartan formers are "no orders"

Having pact, we can operate within their territory.

 

I tried to talk with Yang from pre-end save, but he refuses.

We can further aid Spartans with techs, cause there is an option to give alternative ones. Santiago wants Advanced Spaceflight all the time now, but we could give her:

- Synthetic fossil fuels

- Field modulation.

 

I am thinking, maybe in 2226? these 2 more techs. She received 2 in 2224.

Making Spartans stronger is relatively safe for now, as they are the weakest faction. We will watch them though if they are loyal enough to us.

 

This is a proposal, to consider/discuss.

No problem with that. We need some help to weaken Miriam though, as soon as we'll have submitted Yang, we'll force him to declare vendetta upon the Believers.

The Spartans are no match for us; we could beat us only with probe teams but it's better to have them as allies.

I am afraid, that Hive may see its end very soon. Recently, Yang lost 2 bases to Zakharov. He is already too weak to defend against University even when we stop our vendetta. I think our only chance to keep Yang on planet is to stop our offensive and make Zakharov to sign truce also.

 

The only problem is, that Yang do not want to talk anymore...

 

I probed Spartan diplomacy, they want Unified Field Theory now, and we might give it to them...?

Spartans: better wait a few turns to be sure that we build the Theory of Everything and not Santiago.

 

Hive: Yang doesn't want to talk? We'll make it SQUEEEEAAAAALLLL like a PIG!!:D

He won't die if we don't want: finally, we won't attack the two most defended bases this turn and Zakharov doesn't have enough forces to take them. Now, if Yang doesn't want to surrender, he may as well die; we can't stay in vendetta forever as it consumes all our efforts (and will even a few turns after it will hae ended). Now, let's see what happens in 2226...

- F13 killed Hive transport

- A13 killed the last defender in Fellowship City

- Nwabudike took Seat of Proper Thought (destroyed) and 2 EC,

- Appache-13 killed the last two defenders in The Hive and a Gaian rover

 

Yang came talking obstinate.

Bla bla as usual.

Vendetta continues.

 

- drop silksteel garrison took The Hive and 16EC. :b:

 

Same conversation with Yang...

 

- drop silksteel garrison took Fellowship City and 14EC

- Appache-13 killed a Hive drop infantry

 

Same conversation with Yang...

 

- Nwabudike killed the last defender in Great Collective

 

Miscellaneous:

 

- we are now #1 in everything

- we have pop 217! Mart, do you want to try planetary election?

- we can eradicate the Hive next turn. What are the orders? Eradicate? Keep one base alive (the sea base)?

I think, that Yang wants to talk only just after a base is taken. Maybe this is how the game works.

 

In that case, I would propose to take the sea base and when Yang communicates, try to force him into Pact. Then we would need to talk to Zakharov so he ends his war also.

 

I checked Planetary Governorship possibilities and we do not have enough EC to convince Zakharov (over 2500) during voting. Miriam supports Lal and she has 89 votes?

I can't really 'talk' to Yang. It's only "Attack Lal!", "No!", "Give me tech!", "No!" then "Go to hell with your democracy!" No possibility to negociate.

I'd say that if he still doesn't want to talk before I take the last base, then he'll SCREEAAM LIKE A PIIIIG in our torture-room! :D

OPERATION RAINING STEEL planification:

 

- do we take the Hive seabase Great Collective or rather Fisher of Men from Believers (pop 1: will be destroyed)? I would go Believer.

- we'll take Garden of the Deep, the last Gaian seabase to try to force a truce

- we should take the 2 Hive continental bases

- we'll try to mindprobe back Sea Hive...or should we let it to the Believers until we can recover from the other ongoing vendettas?

Yes, let's go Believers base and leave Hive sea base intact. As for the land bases, let's take them and Yang will face decision: be free and pacted with us or be defeated.

 

Sea Hive in Believers possesion - how about we finally infiltrate Believers and we do it through this base? A basic probe cruiser or probe foil could do it (fusion reactor). We would need a design. Name...?

We already have designs for maritime probes (and the ones we build are elite ones now) and Sea Hive is inside the operation radius of our cruiser one.

Believers will be infiltrated next turn, we'll first kill the Believer cruiser probe just north of Sea Hive and terminate the Hive threat on land.

It is possible to sign Treaty with Gaians, using threat, but pact does not work.

 

With Hive, it is possible to sign truce only... How about we eliminate the last land base and then one of our cruisers approaches their last sea base?

 

Miriam wants 1000 EC for truce.

 

Any oppinions? Especially regarding Gaians, I would prefer they are submissive, but recently they are strengthened by going deep into PK territory, that one that previously was Gaians.

 

Lal has now 6 crawlers and is building a next one. He apparently adds them to SPs. Living Refinery will get one next turn - it's already in the base.

I'd say "Go for treaty!"

I really wouldn't want to continue this war AND be on the same landmass as Lal.

Gonna be done as soon as units are repaired/available. We've had some casualties because I tried to push the momentum and we are somewhat stretched already.

 

Miriam wants 1000 EC for truce.
She can go to Hell!

We'll fortify our bases facing the Believers and keep them contained without much spending hopefully.

I don't have much time to look into their bases. Something interesting into their datalinks now that we've got them?

Lal in 2227 had 80/240 for Living Refinery. He added 1 crawler then.

In 2228 he has 122/240 and he has now 2 !!! crawlers in the bases, most likely ready to be added to the SP.

 

Lal still has total 6 crawlers.

 

never mind... :)

I'm doing diplomacy with Deirdre...

 

2228

 

Deirdre answered when contacted and demanded Unified Field Theory for truce, but we refused.

Then asked for truce and we agreed.

We later threatened her and demanded Treaty agreement, she complied.

 

We have now Treaty with Gaians.

These last days, I had to connect after work in the cafeteria corner between the offices so it was a little...sloppy? sometimes.

Long story short: The yesterday save was not good because it didn't came from Mart's save, so I had to redo it completely later in my flat. I did almost everything the same but I noticed that some units were underused so here are a little modifications and the real save:

 

- THE HIVE HAS BEEN ERADICATED! :cool:

- we have secured their former landmass by grabbibg the last University base on it. That means we won't have to rushbuild probe teams there. :cool:

 

...Long story long: I can't upload files anymore. Perhaps some wifi problem. :mad:

I can open the File Management, Add my file by Select, but the button Upload doesn't show. Strange!

I have checked this new pre-end.

There is possibility to sign truce with Zakharov, but he will agree to nothing more.

 

We can try this in 2229.
