Re: Psychogenic Domination

I have to say, when this happened in one of my last games (I'm new to the game), it came as a complete shock to me when the foe I was in the middle of steamrollering suddenly started taking over some of my ships. It decimated several of my attacking stacks, and I was forced to retreat backwards two ...

You can already assign world sizes and such to a species using that file, as well as their preferred world type, so ass...

Re: Dyson Spheres

I'm new to FreeOrion, having downloaded the game just this week. I really like that the game tries to implement some pretty big concepts, such as turning a Gas Giant into a huge planet, or turning a red dwarf into a black hole...
