Computer Wargaming / Re: Polaris Sector - another new space 4x
« Last post by Anguille on Today at 12:55:53 AM »
This just appeared on my radar.  Rather than reading through 13 pages, it would be nice if anyone could summarise Polaris Sector for me.  Just briefly, what's good about it?  What does it do uniquely, if anything?  Any other thoughts you'd like to add.  Thanks!

If I can't be persuaded to get this, I think I'll get GalCiv 3.

You're really looking at two very different games. The best thing about Polaris Sector are the tactical battles and the shipdesign that comes with it. The maps are big and you don't get to see fighters and bombers before they are in range. The tech tree is also interesting with fundemantal and applied science. Diplomacy is well done as well.

I keep watching the forum in the vain hope that someday I'll hear that Battlefront has put this DRM mess behind them.

Unfortunately that's not likely. Steve assumes that wargamers are thieves. He won't settle for a simpler license key strategy like Slitherine/Matrix (let alone Steam).
Screenshots from the latest version of the mod:


The Channel






Masurian Lakes

The links in the first post of this thread will take you to the latest version.

Both France '14 and East Prussia '14 are way beyond version 1.1.

Last time I looked the JTS website does not post links to mods.
I'll have a Scotch & Regular Water for Mr. Roenneberg at Tea Time tomorrow. R.I.P. Joachim.

Good luck keeping it running.

And that means?  I have owned every version of Battlefront's games and have never had an issue with installing/playing the issues with DRM (whether I like the scheme or not).

That is not my experience. I have had patches fail, then screw up the DRM in the install, forcing me to work with the help desk to do a reinstall and get things working again. This happened twice.

I had Gustav Line install fail when the activation code did not work. This screwed up the entire CMFI...again, another wonderful help desk experience. Actually, the tech was very helpful, but the fact that I even had this kind of problem (ie. not with the core product, but the DRM) makes me mad.

I recently changed computers, but the potential "joy" of uninstalling then installing CMFI and expansion, CMBN with two expansions, CMFB, and CMRT...has just tuned me off.

I keep watching the forum in the vain hope that someday I'll hear that Battlefront has put this DRM mess behind them.

Even more drastic examples of poor selection...

Everclear's selected radio tracks were largely asspie.  These ate their shriveled scrote.
