Maybe I am a sick bastard, but I quite enjoy shooting at hospitals, passenger liners, practically anything defenseless.

I often will shoot a missile, say at a passenger liner, then click on it, so I can see how many people got nailed with that missile :)

So no treaties in my universe.

I have been following some of your advice, and started losing the stealth and adding extra repairbots and command centres, etc.. One thing I am really starting to like, is a ship with high turning over speed. Yep, I end up with no velocity often, as I tend to bump into things, including enemy ships!...

Lots of food for thought in that post, for me! I am still on a massive learning curve, and have not made it past 13 missions, yet. I am just starting to clue in on how important repairbots are. I find I can get away with not using them for the first few missions, but after that, I am asking for trou...

Well, one thing I am starting to clue into, is to stop doing what I often do...

Go straight in, get into the enemy's range, pop off a couple of missiles at the enemy, then generously turn around, exposing my weakest side... insane!

I never thought about that.

Yep, it looks like we would have to do each battle from the starting mission.

We have not tried it yet, but a myself and a friend, are thinking about having a campaign against each other. Since we can exchange files, such as custom ships and missions, we thought it would be a good idea to do something like this... Each pick a race Design ships, of the same quantity and point ...

Yes, I was thinking more along the lines of getting some kind of reward for capturing ships, perhaps more credits for the next mission.

But it might be neat to have a mission where the objective is to retrieve a ship, maybe even with enemy diplomats still on it.

Well, I got smoked like a fine cigar in mission #13.

Didn't even fire a shot!

When in straight at a medium turret, and I blew up shortly after.

So yes, maybe I should alter my attitude, and play more cautiously.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it, but I would love to be able to hit a ship with mine, after they have used their escape pod, and tow the enemy ship back home via my hyperspace.

Maybe give my towing ship really lousy movement for the 8 turns it takes.

It's going to be hard for me to focus on the starbase, but you are right, that is the point of the mission. I have been keeping track of which wingman ships have been doing the best for me over the missions, and try and max. out how many ships I can get for this mission. I have had a couple of close...
