I'm new to GCII and enjoy the game so far but I keep running into a problem. All my games end before researching the later techs. Regardless of map size or slowing down/speeding up the research rate, I find that I get medium hulls + planetary invasion, take over some planets and then typically win the game afterwards before even getting larger hulls. If it is a small map, I can just conquest, influence or alliance victory. If it is a larger one, I can win via research. I never see the late game fun. Now, I can simply disable all win conditions except domination and play on immense maps but is that my only option? How are you all doing it?
