What do you mean as don't settle obsessively? In my current game I killed 3 AIs and I have 16 colonies already (that's 4 per player, I disabled camps) , there are 8 more AIs to kill. Do you play tiny maps vs a single AI only?1. Don't settle obsessively then? Try execrising restraint. I'm sorry but you did it to yourself. A dev had to step in and control your settling habits. At the expense of everyone else like me. Planetfall turned into civ5 where I settle the first 3-4 cities then be bored and blocked by cosmite costs on colonizers. I plan on applying the mod after i finish the current new haven planet game.
How??? I tried a slow game where I didn't attack anyone before turn 30 and I don't use tier 3-4 units, no orbital relays either, 100% land and 0% water, now it is turn 51 and I control 1/3 of the map after killing 3 AIs and nobody ever attacked my sectors despite we have 12 teams here. I am first in every category and it is a boring game now. If I don't use teams, they stay friendly and just die one after another. I don't see a way to meet modded tier 4 AI units unless you do nothing during first 100 turns I guess.Maybe just maybe almost everyone else is doing it the wrong way? I see Modded t4s very regularly in my RMG Games.
Edit. Oh, I see now. Turn 188. My longest game lasted less than 90 turns. Do you have 4 colonies and peace with everyone on turn 90?
