I remember Millenium, was it not the game where you addicted your generals with some immortality drug Ah, that was Imperium . :) Millenium had you start with a small moon colony - you then built some small ships to mine asteroids, built some basic defenses against Martians and tried to reclaim Eart...

Are you not bored all by the kind of 'rat-race' that one has to do, to grab a maximum of stars before the others players? Where is the thrill of moving into last frontier of humanity there? An example among others of things which are simply seen again and again in current sci-fi game. Explore like ...

Galciv2 is really more like CIV in space,it lacks any sort of military depth in ship design and the ground battles are a joke.MOO2 is still the best in my view followed by SpaceEmpires5 and the Sword the stars expansion. I think that GalCiv2 does have a lot more depth than MoO2 (outside the war), n...

Not at all interested in a Sci-Fi or modern game. I prefer to game in the past, as I find it much more interesting. It really depends on setting and game design. 4X in space is currently dominated by GalCiv2, and it would be hard to best that one. On the other hand, operational/tactical wargames wi...

Oddly, I can imagine all campaigns being fun on either side. I am not really set on one side or the other. Both sides have their own unique challenges.

Il peut y avoir des objectifs geographiques en plus de gagner des batailles. par exemple , pour Waterloo tenir Bruxelles (l'orthographe est au pif) . Napoléon in Italy le fait - des points pour tenir des cités et des points pour soldats tués. (Excuse my French. :innocent: ) Another system I liked v...

That, of course, goes without saying. :)

I play most my games against the AI, with the occasional PBEM against people I've known for a while. So without AI I would only buy the game if I was sure I would find opponents in my playing strength (I am somewhat sucky at wargames, though I love them) and if there was a "guaranteed" player base f...

Tehee, small world, isn't it... :niark: Indeed it is and good luck with the manual. :) France 1814, much like the German 1813 campaign are unfortunately one of the "underdone" scenarios of Napoleonic era. My guess could only be that 1814 would be too one-sided - at least on paper, and 1813 too comp...

Yes, though I had it changed to Syt (almost) anywhere else. :D

Slow PBEM would admittedly be kind of up my alley. ;)

Which will be your first campaign?

The game is almost upon us, and while most of us will first play through the tutorials, people are probably already thinking about what campaign to play in their first "real" game. :) The list of campaigns is (according to the announcements): Austerlitz (1805) Trafalgar (1805) Iéna (1806) Friedland ...

I may be a bit of a traditionalist in that regard, but in my humble opinion victiory or defeat should be determined by whether or not the player(s) do better than the historic counterpart. If, as Union, I manage to beat the Rebelsat Gettyburg in two days instead of three, it should be a win. If as G...

I have to say I am pretty excited about the game (I only now learned about it). I like AACW, have preordered NC and the Victorian and WW1 Era is just about my favorite subject (together with Napoleonics) which is unfortunately only sparsely covered by games, so I suck up whatever is there .... the o...

If you have the stop after battle option checked you can scroll the map when the game stops and shows the outcome. It will move beneath the result window that is fixed in place. That way you can at least check out where a battle took place immeditely after the same. For me, a "Goto" button in the m...

First of all, I love the game and enjoy playing it. :) Two things would be great if added, though (IMHO, of course): 1. Battles history - when, where, who, how many, etc. It would be a fantastic features for AAR writers and gives a great sense of immersion and atmosphere. 2. I like that you can rand...
