"My biggest concern is that it is actually about 10% story, 10% combat, and 80% trading. In that case, I am more prone to just uninstall it. I can put up with some FedEx trudging, but I do not want to spend my whole life doing that...

Wanting a game where you are Kilrathi and (finally) get to destroy all humans"


Ray, unfortunately its all trading, and what story missions there are suck. It's pretty though. Here's how I got whatever fun I had.

1. Don't install any patches - keep it at 1.0
2. Play until the mission where they give you the transport shuttle to pick up the chick and the scientist.
3. After the jump where you get ambushed and rescued, don't go back to base, instead sell all the expensive equipment on the ship, then return it. Terracorp doesn't seem to care, and you get 400,000 credits.
4. Now, either sell the cargo ship you get for completing this mission and go buy a small fighter to hunt pirates (when they surrender randomly you get their ships to sell for good money, and it makes you friends with other races) or
5. You'll never get enough cash without literally days of trading unless you cheat. So cheat. Get a hex editor, find the hex with the amount of credits you have in your save game file, and give yourself a hundred billion credits. Detailed instructions can be found online. INSERTEDIT - you can't cheat with versions later than 1.0, that's why I said not to patch - ENDINSERTION
6. Go buy and equip a huge fleet, go on the story missions, or for real fun, see if you can kill every station everywhere it the game. I loved it when my six capital ships opened fire in Argon Prime on the Argon One, and it was soooo pretty! Then I conquered the known universe...or at least killed everyone in it...I don't think that particular save game will work too well with the upcoming expansion....

Hopefully the expansion pack will fix this game, it's got such a sweet engine.

I forget, is any space-combat game coming out again, ever?
Whatever happened to that Russian Homeplanet game? I want Independence War 3 too!

That's it, now I'm just gonna have to cry myself to sleep.

Die Kilrathi Scum! I'll never forgive your treachery in WC3. I enjoyed genociding you!

Ah, now I feel better.
