    I'm actually decent at SOSE, but that's just because I'm a backstabbing bastard in that game.

    I think my two favourite 4X games might just be Swords of the Stars and Master of Orion 2. Not played SOTS2 yet though. If you ignore the crappy interface and godawful voice acting then SOTS is a much better game than Sins of a Solar Empire IMHO

    Abaut to try play Space empires V after a friend who plays even more RTS games than me suggested it do me.(he also bought me SEV)


    This is possibly one of the largest most convoluted 4X games of all time. I have it myself, but I'd be damned if I could figure out the thing.

    And I'm a massive Civ / Starcraft / Dawn of War / RTS in general fan too. The fact that this game can be confusing to someone like me is just baffling.

    Ahahaha like Sins is even a real X4 game real funny. Try playing Galciv2 or Sword of the stars.

    Shit should post a review or something on the old Sots since i love this game.

    If I had a copy handy, i'd love to boot up Civilisation 2 again. I used to play that quite a bit when I was a kid.

    Does Star Ruler have homeworld style 3D motion?

    SotS2 was really buggy on release, but so far it's been patched almost weekly and it's improved a lot. It's a hell of a lot different than Prime and really complex, though.

    Apparently you guys think Sins is easy.

    I play Solar Empire and think that's easier.

    I guess I'm crazy.

    There's a really good GalCivsII AAR which I totally recommend reading, here it's:

    I just played GalCivsII for the first time.

    I just went with the difficulty it gave me and it was ridiculously easy.

    Anyone want to play some Sins of a Solar Empire with me? If you do, just PM me and I'll set up a chat room so we can all play.

    try playing on ALL normal AIs or higher and you will get destroyed. The AI on galciv2 when turned up to normal or higher is god dam brilliantly evil sometimes.

    Yeah, I should have mentioned that the AI in GCII is really damn good. They are really challenging and smart.

    Anyone here ever played Shores Of Hazeron? Simply put it has really, really ugly graphics and bare bones gameplay , but has a lot of potential and is very addictive. It's as far to an 4X MMO you can get.

    Tried it, was very bland. Didn't like it too much.

    But I can see how it can have some appeal though.

    Someone link us to a good Aurora tutorial series or something. I tried that game and, if Dwarf Fortress was hard for me, I dont even know what I thought after an hour on Aurora.
    It is really simple once you learn how to actually use the interface honestly although its really fun.
