I'm glad to see my highlander ability is working out for your Titan's. I've downloaded the latest Diplomacy Expansion and will play around with it some when I get a free moment.

Hi ZombiesRus5,
Thanks again for sharing the ability, it seems to work well with massive Flagships! except of course when the enemy send them to your own home world!!

How does one create a Titan? I can't find the option within the tech page or the construction menu.
