From what I understand, the AI will always retreat if below 50% strength during combat, unless they only have 3 systems left.

Bship spam is the way to go vs the AI, you want the instant deletion that they offer.

So far my first Void Dwellers game have been very good. I have already found some neighbors to talk and look at:

They surely know how to choose real states, maybe they will give me some advice :)

You underestimate the power of Void Dwellings.
Void dwellers are the strongest start in the game. They can get more research and alloys during the early game than any other civ type. But I wouldn't want to spend over a hundred years turtling up, since that's just not a fun game for me. Getting pinned in behind a FE like this is exactly why I always picked wormhole FTL before the game was changed to hyperlane only.

Shattered ring also seems a bit ridiculous, your guaranteed to get mega tech faster than anyone else.
Void dwellers are the strongest start in the game...
The rule of the day since origins became a thing is to throw balance out the window. Maybe Paradox is subtly preparing us for the crisis where the Hunters arrive to exterminate half the galaxy and restore perfect balance.

Lithoids: use minerals as food
Matter Compressor: produces minerals food.

But there is more! Lithoids build cities literally made of what for them is food!
It's basically the reverse of the fable of Hans and Gretel. where the two build an entire civilization made of cookies.
Is the Shroud the witch at this point?

Is the house made of flesh?

Or are they made of house?

How do you have access to that rusted background? I updated to 2.7.1 and don't have it. Is it with Federations or something?
You don't know them? All the cool kids are using them. If you don't then you are not cool :p

Here is a thread about the new furnishing:
Enjoy them :)

Deep in the caverns of paradox dev studios a secret is revealed. How are planets made? Is that Slartibartfast and why are there so much mice?





People of Baldarak and New Baldarak, your attention, please. This is Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz of the Galactic Ringworld Planning Council. As you will no doubt be aware, the plans for development of the outlying regions of the Galaxy require the building of a rinworld through your star system. And regrettably, your planet is one of those scheduled for demolition. The process will take slightly less than two of your Gasy minutes. Thank you



There’s no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your gas years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now. ... What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh, for heaven’s sake, gaskind, it’s only four light years away, you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs, that’s your own lookout. Energize the demolition beams.
