First, Terraforming is highly unbalanced in Multiplayer, it gives the Mono literally an unbeatable advantage. There is nothing you can do to nullify or even moderate this advantage... That's why it is DISABLED by default.

In short, if you let your friend talk you into playing a game with terraforming turned on, you deserve the spanking you are going to get.

In essence, you are a military powerhouse. You can produce virtually limitless ore and Labor... and need to capitalize on that MILITARILY.
The first are not a peaceful resolution race. They are a conquerer race, all the way, and trying to play them against the peaceful ones on a diplomatic level is tying both of your hands behind your back.

The research that allows you to build flagships using ore instead of money is virtually custom-made for producing gigantic, powerful flagships, that move faster than you would believe.

You need to declare war and start conquering your enemies the moment you have 4 mines and 2 materials feeding into your homeworld. The first WERE living a peaceful, cooperative coexistence and then found out that it will not work to stop the precursors... So it's time to fight.

Not also that with 'resource scarcity' turned on, the first are the only race capable of effectively using the TONS of Barren worlds that are produced in a really BIG map. They are clearly a late-game race, but have enormous money, ore, and labor, battle powerhouse potential.

Hey guys

hoping someone would help me out here ...

i like the playstyle of the race "The First" / "The Ancients" but i cannt handle them in long playing end games in multiplayer ... .. .

the main problem i think is that the first are not able to terraform in any way ... or is there a possibility to terraform planets ??? ... in regular way like all other races they cannt terraform ... is there another method ?

artificial planets are ( near ) useless for them ... ringworlds can only be used for massive production or massiv improving ships ...

my biggest problem is the money ... i need more money ^^ ... for the first all depends on "LUCK" of the planets you find ... there are no possibility to have controll about economy like other races ... the mono can terraform all water and food planets in the resources they need ... thats incredible ... the first cannt do anythink like this ...

there should be buildings like the lab they have to produce money, energy and influence for an amount of ore + base materials ...

someone know if there is an possibility to generate money / energy with the lack of no terraforming for the first ???
is there a way to get a lvl 5 planet with the first ? tier 1 / 2 / 3 resource planets have its level automatically after own it ... flt crystal planet for examble - is there a way to upgrade them to tier 5 ???

thx for helping

I bought a steam key for SR1 to make it even handier for me to keep up with.
What's been up since roughly 2012 or 2013?
One of my cousins bought SR2 but I wasn't too impressed with it when he let me try it out, it just seemed too simple to me.
I remember in my most successful game back in the day, I had super carriers jumping planet sized mining stations and ships out to asteroid systems. I even had one carrier hauling my battle fleet around via jump drive. I never did get a galaxy sized Battleship built, sadly.

The files arent read-only unless you have issues with your anti virus or on windows with UAC.   Make sure the game is installed someplace like  c:/games/starruler and NOT in    /ProgramFiles/ and it will avoid UAC issues.  You'll need to look up specific info if its antivirus related.

Other than that the majority of all files you mod are just text.  So editing with Notepad++ shouldnt give you any problems as long as something else isnt interfering.
Galactic Armory / Tweaking the Game Data Files
« Last post by Durandal on September 02, 2016, 09:21:20 PM »
Hello everyone. First off let me say that I love this game, and wonderful the Galactic Armory mod.

I've been playing this game for years now, and while it's fun I'd really love to be able to tweak it. Add in certain ideas that I have about new weapons, subsytems, ect.

However, I can't seem to be able to do this. The game data files are read-only and no matter what I do I can not get the settings to accept my changes. Has anyone else had this problem and if so know how to change it?

Bugs & Support / game lock-up on load

Anyone else experienced that at a certain point in a game, when it gets over a certain size, you can no longer load a savegame?

Game doesn't crash, it just leaved you at the loading screen.

And no, game is only using 10% of my PCs harware.
