General Starfleet Discussion / Mouse over not working?
« on: October 21, 2011, 03:31:50 PM »
Anyone having the issue of the exact amount not showing up when you mouse over (ex. 1.2M when moused over not showing 1,196,485)? Also, on the home screen, incoming transports/deploy with res aboard not showing how much is being carried?

I'm using chrome and haven't had this issue until today.  :?:

New Player Corner / Raiding 101?
« on: September 15, 2011, 09:31:18 PM »
a few things i've learned on my low level ~10 ship noob raids on hapless inactives and those lower than my feeble rank....

Always bring enough cargo capacity to haul away your bounty.

probe, probe, and probe. I even got messaged saying that he moved all fleets and res off the planet and shut down production. I probed again and he did. I recalled my fleet.

Go and pick up your debris if you get smashed. I didn't right away. There was enough to rebuild half my stuff. When I finally sent 2 dio's, the debris was gone.

Anyways, this has been a really fun week of playing this game.  Please feel free to add your noobie raiding tales.

New Player Corner / Now what?
« on: September 12, 2011, 07:11:46 PM »
Ok, first time playing any SFC incarnation (currently uni 2). I've built some things, but after reading ahead on the forum, I realize the scope of this game is bigger than I understand.

A lot of posts are tough to disseminate. Abbreviations and acronyms are rampant. (I look them up on the wiki as I go)

I guess I would ask that once you have a simple start, I've mainly just been building mines(15/14/12), What are the options from here out?

I've made a few fighters and picked off some low hanging fruit in the form of lower inactives. I've yet to invest in a lot of defenses, so I'm sure I can be wiped out on a whim, and I'd be powerless to do anything to stop it.

I've gotten lucky and my 1 and only colony has 193 fields (which i've read is decent) just so I can build even more mines and build a resource base.  

I'd like to hear opinions more along the lines of what would you do different at roughly this point?


New Player Corner / Mistakes you have made.
« on: August 31, 2011, 03:26:50 PM »
Hello and thanks for taking the time to read this.

I just started playing this a few days ago and am looking for some sage advice.  I wonder, what were some of the mistakes people made when they started out?  What were some actions you took that you realized turned out to be exercises in futility?

I'm looking forward to making my own mistakes, they can only help me learn. I'd be interested to hear what some veterans have to say.
