Quoting Admiral Davis, reply 4Thanks again for the welcome. And I do have a question. I was thinking about downloading a couple of mods to break the monotony of my games(not that they've been getting boring, but a little change here or there is always nice). What I was wondering is, can I still play games with mods and upload my scores from such games to the metaverse? If yes, what are some mods you would recommend?
technically you can, but it will trigger a cheat flag. your score wouldn't be counted in the official MV, but it would be counted in the altmeta.
i recommend doing what you find most fun.
Okay, thanks. I want to continue to up my metaverse rank, so I'll stick with my old guns. By the way, I think it's somewhat ironic that I've been winning games by military conquest even though I never build any ships besides constructors. I really love the influential starbases.
And I was wondering, if game settings such as planet and star frequency affect my score. I've been playing on gigantic maps with star and planet frequency set to rare, so that all the major races(including myself) only have the 2 colonizeable planets in their home system, while there is 1 system with 5 planets housing all the minors. I like to play like that, because it makes it easier for me to stay competitive with the other races, as well as making it quite easy to conquer them via influence.
Heh, so I guess I'm asking, if there are more systems and habitable planets, does that in and of itself increase the points I will get by winning?
