Smiling Spectre It was my error with banning. Unfortunately, I can reverse the ban, but not actually _remove_ it. :|

Ha, I figured it. Ban lifted!

lol.. well I hope you enjoyed it.. you won't be able to tell me if you did as you've since been banned I see lol. Maybe I won't click on that link you posted lol!!!

Well.. time is running out on the steam sale and the general response I'm getting in most places I asked was either silence or 'never heard of it so I don't know if it's good' haha.. However after watching that let's play series I previously posted that sold it for me and I hit the button lol!

As expected it’s graphics aren’t exactly revolutionary lol but damn is it addictive and fun to play. Last few days I've barely eaten, slept, worked.. it’s all gone to hell haha!!

haha yeah it's kind of my obsession lol.. still living in the world of 90s gaming haha!

Speaking of which I've found yet another love letter to Master of Orion except this one is more MOO2 like! Has anyone here tried this one? If so was it good? Was it stable? Apparently the indie team behind it consists of only 2 people haha! It looks pretty awesome so am thinking about trying it out now that it's finally on sale (it's normally pretty pricey lol).

Mystvan I will compare the games between the prequel Master of Orion and his sequel Master of Orion II.

The MOO has its characters in more cartoon style and more cute while the MOOII has the more digitized style. An example would be the nice robot from GNN. In MOO, the robot has a very cute appearance; Already in MOOII, it has a more cool and distant appearance.

I do not remember if MOO has its champions or heroes. Already in MOOII, you need to select and reject if necessary, the best heroes or those that best fit your needs.

Not to mention that MOOII background musics are great. Composer Laura really did a great job. I really enjoyed the BGM of the Galactic Map (except 1) and the Space Battle BGM.

In MOOII you have the fearsome and bellicose Antarians. If you have a technology that allows you to invade and conquer enemy ships, it would be very interesting to use it to invade Antarians ships (if you do not use cheat codes) to obtain technologies available to the Orions and Antarians. But be careful, for Antarians can self-destruct their ships if they are captured.

I conquered several Antarians ships including invading the planet Antares. I conquered the Space Base and all the Antarians ships, but I could not get them into my galaxy. If you retire, the Antarians ships and base will remain in the space of Antares.

One thing that confused me is that if the Galactic Council appoints you as “Master of Orion” and you refuse the title, everyone declares war on you!

One sadistic thing I used to do to my opponents was to edit their Home Worlds: tiny-sized Planet; Planet of toxic radiation environment; Planet of mineral resources very poor; Only 01 Planet in the Solar System while the others are Asteroids.

EDIT:

I forgot to mention that I have two OST versions of the MOO2 game, one that I got on the site and the other through GOG.com.

I also forgot to mention the Stellar Converter. I avoided using this powerful weapon so as not to destroy the planets. I pretty much forgot (or cannot remember) the technologies, but I had the technology of total invisibility.

Mystvan Well, if you use Game Wizard, well you can advance very quickly.

A very funny fact was that I had already conquered almost the entire galaxy, with two opponents remaining, one being located in the northwest and the other in the southeast of the galaxy.

They both had only one solar system. I offered tons of money and both built tiny ships. And one declared war on the other, but they both avoided fighting with me, for my ships were very powerful.

And one traced the route to the solar system of the other and although they did not have the long-distance space technology, the game did not prevent these discrepancies. What partiality, right, dear Micropose...

Phreeze_lu set myself the challeng on my ooold savegame to massive conquer planets. I'm playing Bulrathi and boosted my ground troops.
Problem now: the whole council is against me, and they quickly grew in technology! My ground troops were winning with 10 men vs over 70, but now they have equal or nearly equal tech...

will become very hard to win must set on spies to steal some tech now

Oskatat good point and completely right, though for me the challenge is getting to master the game and such

at that, MoO doesn't really offer that much more in that respect
