Re: I got ideas for SV5


I would like to have one, but I don't have the programmer for it. I can program Atmel Microcomtrollers using the PG302 programmer. I actually made a LCD Graphics Module program for 20 pin microcontrollers. After some sucessful attempts to write display data to the LCD, I'm now going to a color module.

I'm very fast with a mouse, but sometimes I use keyboard to order my ships.

Keyboard is always quicker and more efficient when ordering ships (Or for that matter, issuing any orders including those for Winwar). That is one of the reasons why I am so quick in Winwar. Memorize shortcuts or whatever they call them, keystrokes?

Still training... But I always forget and click before press. The only problem is that the hotkeys are far apart. (Like T and M, the most used)

How the Defend works? I just see a green line towards the star selected...

Defend causes your ship to attack the nearest enemy to the defended star or ship.

I actually use defend as a attack. ( like when I place a warship near a group of defenseless starships and I ckick on defend on my warship and there it goes. ) However I don't use that strategy often because the warship runs into e-mines or defended areas of the map.

What you mean defend areas? Usualy, to defend some areas I use patrol... But it seen sometimes dumb, the ship still patrol with a startillery stopped near. So it's wiped out and the startillry still alive with full power.

There is a command called "Defend". You click it and then select a starship or starsystem you'd like your ship to defend. The line between the ship you gave the command to and its object to defend will be GREEN. If an enemy ship is nearby, (within a certain radius), it will immediately go over to that area and engage. However, patrol is almost useless except when using it with startillery.

As far as what Beat said, this is something I employ also. If I know where the enemy capital is, I will tell ALL my ships to defend it, (those ships mainly being inkspots, and drones), and then I will tell my battlestations & warships (A select group of high weapon rating warships) to attack the capital. This way, I can maintain pressure on the enemy capital at all times and force them to defend their capital rather than harass me.

Re: I got ideas for SV5


Warships and drones are my primary attack starships. I sometimes use startilleries to attack, but I end up winning with a big fleet of drones and warships. Like for example, I played the X marks the spot scenario with tiger. He was in the center of the X and I was on the edge. I build a HUGE scanship and found him early, but I was left with only enough resources to expand and to build techships. He found me about impulse 500 with his starships. I start to build a big fleet of drones to defend. Then I snuck some W3 warships behind his cluster and I built up around him. I started to build more techships and startillery and he was sending e-mines after my capital. I built up a big fleet of E9 drones and send them after his capital. On my capital, I built some good sized warships and made a group outside his scanners. After tiger stopped attacking my capital, I sent all my E4 drones after his capital. Then after I got him under control, i targeted his capital with all my sniper warships and that how I won that one.

I use patrol only for defending my capital or valuable stars.
