Hi, so i have been playing Twilight of the Arnor for the first time recently and have been enjoying it immensely, but have a few questions which have probably been asked many times already?
1) First of all, how come when i try to do a search on a topic, the webpage (Galciv2) thinks about it forever until i give up and cancel the operation?
2) A couple of times i have noticed groups of my ships movement points vanishing to zero but they haven't moved.... is it some kind of weapon the enemy is using? because it seemed to happen just when the enemy was approaching to attack and then they passed by all my ships and wiped out my starbases?
3) This must have been asked a billion times, but wtf is up with the Omega research centre?
3.1) The first problem is the description leaves you wondering if it is empire wide or planetary wide.... were they really that pressed for time that they could not have added one or two more words and saved the flood of people with that question bashing down the gates of the website later on??? STUPID.
3.2) How come when built it doesn't increase science output on that planet by 50% but instead, more like 2%? But perhaps I'm just nitpicking, after all, 2% is pretty close to 50% so, an understandable oversight.
4) At first i noticed it was impossible to get the random starship bonus when colonizing a planet compared to when playing Dark Avatar? Thinking the event was removed from the game entirely, i spent a whole day, hours and hours reloading and re-colonizing but never did it appear. I checked in the website and no mention it had been removed? Puzzling, anyway the next game i played, the event did occur, not just once, but several times??? so why can it not appear for a whole day of thousands of reloaded planet colonizations and then appear numerous times within the 30/40 odd planets i colonized in the next game? What nefarious tricks are Stardock up to here?
5) in the campaign, i did ok until the first mission where the drengin and yor are fighting the dreadlords and korath over the sector.
I had been playing to win as quickly as possible up to this point because it was blatantly clear to me that finances are far more basted compared to previous campaigns.... i thought the idea was to fight the enemy, but here you fight the clock against money which is the real enemy, which i find quite idiotic. Anyway, it finally got me in the above mentioned mission and off i went caught in the event horizon of the financial black hole which sucked me down to oblivion! The problem with this game, if you haven't used financing options, and put all spending down to zero, the game should respect that, not laugh and keep on coming at you with the huge deficit!!!
But not withstanding military costs.... i wonder if i should sell a couple of those Arnor cruisers in a peace treaty to the Drengin?
