Soon they will start burning books and be goose-stepping through the streets.

Somehow, I managed to win a war against a statistically, much more powerful opponent. My goals were limited to taking a single star system...for now. It took dozens of turns and a lot of frustration with many failed planetary invasions, but I sensed I was getting close so I rejected two offers of truce from the enemy empire. To my surprise, I had managed to design two very powerful classes of ship that collectively were able to turn everything they sent against me into burning scraps of metal. Eventually, I realized I could upgrade my ground invasion forces and that turned the tide. When I sought peace, I was able to keep the conquered system and extrapolate another. I had a tremendous war pressure advantage. Those vessels of mine really kicked a lot of ass.

Still not sure what to make of the AI, but I am holding my own in this game, which is, in fact on the normal setting.

I played it for maybe 30 minutes total this weekend - I can't tell a difference in the AI, and no added files were placed in the specified folder. I thought I had read that the mod would fix this issue. I've actually died a few times. If it didn't have a damned checkpoint system it might be less frustrating. Maybe it IS working better, now.

Indeed. I donít even know what to say anymore.

And yet, that speaks volumes.
