Hi all, Every now and then, I play MoO2, as it is one of the greatest games in this genre up to today! I would like to know which strategy the experts here use for the first let's say 100 turns. If I have a starting system with more than one suitable planet I start with building a colony base right away, which usually takes around 15-20 turns depending on several factors of course. The downsiide is that during that time I have no research. Usually I find that this pays of in the long run. What do you guys think? BTW, I play on impossible difficulty and with custom races. I tend to use the Lithovore trait, so I don't have to bother with food at all.
