- Economy: 141 (+1277)

 

Rushes executed:

- upgrade seaformer to clean for 60EC

- upgrade police guard to AAA-silksteel for 70EC

- upgrade plasma sentinel to AAA-silksteel for 50EC

- Aerospace complex in Leader Horde for 136EC

- Rec Commons in The Hive for 60E

- Tree Farm in Morgan Aerodynamics for 208EC

 

2229-start

 

- Peacekeepers have downloaded our files on Homo Superior! :mad:

- I took the decision to "overlook the offense for now". Let's protect better the bases and after a few turns we'll show the good 'Brother' who's boss on this planet...:doitnow!:

- F13 resisted attack by University copter

- We have got Probability Mechanics and have chosen to research N-space Compression (geosynchronous sensors will help our sea bases)

- We have built the Living Refinery. :cool:

- Believers redirect their efforts to the Pholus Mutagen

- the Believers have elite probe cruisers near our coast

- Brother Lal is building many probe cruisers

 

Battle plans (I need a new code name:D):

- taking Belly of the Whale (Believers)

- and some other things (we'll see... If you have any instructions...)

 

EDIT: truce with Zakharov? Bah, it's not worth...until he's got missiles. He doesn't have a navy anymore and his air force is pathetic. We just have to build garrison probes everywhere and prepare how to hurt him bad enough to submit. A good old amphibious landing would do I think (but will take some time).

So we need cruiser transport ships + Marines.

 

I can take a look into workshop, but I will be without internet for about 24 hours.

- Research: N-space Compression (1/3)

- Economy: 3593 (+1262)

- Energy allocation: 40/20/40

 

Secret projects:

- Theory of Everything (2 turns)

--- planet buster (1 turn)

 

Satellites:

- hydroponics labs: 4

- power transmitter: 0 (4 in building)

 

Rushes proposed:

- some garrison units to AAA-silksteel

(but not many since the main threat to them is conventional missiles)

- some F13s to clean and a new Adam Smith

- a lot of units/facilities in our vulnerable sea bases

- solar power satellites

- other things with remaining energy...(rushing the T-6 Transport...)

 

OPERATION DARKSTORM (University):

If you watched the Animatrix, Operation Darkstorm was the darkeneing of the sky by mankind to try to deprive the machines of energy. For us, it means we shall darken the University sky with combat planes and copters until they have no more units.:doitnow!:

Then, we'll invade.

 

- fusion copter killed the defenders of Mir Lab and Gagarin Memorial

 

OPERATION AEGIS (Believers):

The Aegis is Athena's shield for the ancient Greeks. For us, it means:

a) defensive/limited offensive operations only

b) the support of a pagan godess of wisdom and science against the religious fanaticism of the Believers

 

- F13 killed 2 armoured cruiser probes

- F13 killed Unity scout chopper

- Appache-13 killed last defender in Belly of the Whale

- Adam Smith took Belly of the Whale and 3 EC

 

Notes:

 

- prototyping probability sheath with a T-6 cruiser transport (trance ability is for free!:))

- amphibious speeder has been workshopped (amphibious + shard weapon + polymorphic encryption)

- Brother lal will get the Pholus Mutagen in 5 turns. Should we change our Theory of Everything to Pholus Mutagen to get it before the Peacekeepers? Trying to get a special project in 4 or 3 turns is possible but means delaying Operation Darkstorm by as many turns (and it already needs a few turns (I'd say 5) to be ready to launch in earnest)

- the Peacekeepers have 3 cruiser probes and build 5 more

I was able to "convince" Deirdre to enter a pact agreement. She may be submissive.

 

Lal, however would not answer well to threats.

 

So do we go for Pact with Gaians? I say yes.

Cornering Global Energy Market will need 18799 EC.

After talks with Lady Deirdre.

MY 2231

 

Lady Deirdre responded to a call.

She declared not to be scared by our Planet Buster capabilities.

She wanted Unified Field Theory, but we refused - her faction is no longer significant.

After threatening her, she became submissive and we signed a pact.

Our income is +1533 EC/turn

 

A side note: Santiago has a PB too.

With submissive Deirdre, while she is in vendetta with Lal, this our indirect way to keep Lal occupied.

 

How about an advanced sea transport:

0-6t-5*2, fusion reactor, trance ability, deep radar, cost: 4 rows. cargo: 8

This is cheaper than our present T-6 with 6 rows and cargo 4.

Grrrrrr!!!

You're right, of course. I didn't notice that the workshop haven't automatically put a fusion reactor. Shall be changed...at once!

Sometimes, the workshop doesn't behave like I like. And there are units that came from some GotM (heavy transport, marine probe,...) and stayed on my hard drive!:eek:

We can't attack the Peacekeeper probes. :mad: Should we change to Fundamentalism? (we lose only 83EC/turn and 1 turn/tech) ? That probably wouldn't stop them downloading our techs.

Zakharov would submit, there is a way to do it. Shall we go for it?

Share this post

Fact is, I was waiting for Zakharov to call us and plead for himself when everytime he called before we took a base he was obstinate. I tried to call him yesterday evening and saw that that would be OK! (but I was without web connection).

So, to prevent further casualties and to allow us some flexibility, I'll share your diplomatic prerogatives this time to end this vendetta before the week-end.

 

We shall still rush plasma sentinels in the captured bases and you can now tell me which ones our offensive units must leave in order to give those bases back to Zakharov later in the turn (after 2235-pre-end, so our planes/copters/paratroops will be redeployed).

How many bases do you think he'll need to be:

- a good cash-cow for us?

- able to defend himself?

- able to support us in our vendettas?

We could keep the two northern bases Mir Lab and Gagarin Memorial, as much to shield Zak against too many nasty things as to have forward operation bases which we can upgrade at will.

 

2234-end

 

ZAKHAROV SURRENDERED!

He gave us 81EC.

I made him end his vendettas against our friends Santiago and Deirdre (he signed Treaty with Gaians later).

I made him declare vendetta against the Believers.

- many plasma sentinels upgraded to AAA-silksteel (little money for us but thus Zakharov will be able to defend his bases)

How about some new long-term plans?

 

I was thinking about some goals:

- get some "future society" SE. Cybernetic seems fast to get, at least for the time being, and there is an SP to eliminate negatives of it.

- get defense against planet busters, flechette system? anything else works?

Share this post


Link to post

Against planet busters, and since it seems our enemies won't get more than one at a time, the best return of investment would be to build 3-4 orbital defence pods to stop it. Much cheaper than FDS in every base. With 1 tech/2 turns, we should reach this possibility soon.

 

Cybernetic was already available but I chose the path to habitation domes and the Space Elevator. Anyway, just a matter of a few turns.

 

About strategies:

- what to do with Miriam? An invasion would seem to me...cumbersome. I am envisioning some long term 'containment': waves of air strikes to destroy sensors and units, and fungal missiles to apply the scorched earth policy and keep the believers busy. And a few cruisers to take their seabases and perhaps giving them to Santiago.

- tell me what to do with Zakharov's bases!

- I shall send an F13 to destroy the sensor helping the frontlines of Lal against Deirdre. It's not much but it can help without us getting involved.

Ok, I forgot this would be very effective, so let us schedule it.

My idea is, that when we attempt a victory condition or simply approach the tech tree end, we would possibly face "all out" attack. So we better prepare.

Good idea. Let's do it this way.

- tell me what to do with Zakharov's bases!

I was thinking about reviving Zakharov a bit. Maybe establishing few more bases in that region and giving them to Zak? Maybe even giving some of those taken over to him back - some less important ones. We seem to get a lot of commerce income from pactmates, it will pay back.

Yes, but I'm not sure we can destroy installations on PK territory without triggering vendetta.

I made a test: strangely, you can make a naval bombardment to destroy enhancements without declaring vendetta but you can't use planes to do the same.

Deirde will have to do alone.
