Description

Diplomacy Expansion Series - Includes new Capitalship known as a Dreadnought, a very large and powerful Capitalship that once at level six or beyond can be upgraded into a Super-Dreadnought. Dreadnought's are automatically and repeatedly built by a special factory ... only one unique factory is made available for each player at the start of the game. Also included in the expansion series are more aggressive Pirates capable of colonizing. Finally beware of dangerous asteroids which fill the gravity well of various planets, they can severely damage fleets through collisions.

will this work with distant stars????? Because that would be an awesome combination.

Haven't tried stacking this with Distant stars.
The players might be able to stack but the stars/planets can't be made to stack.
The RAM usage would be very large also ... on the default graphics settings it would approach 2GB (the danger figure).

I'm having trouble with texture for some ships
The texture does not appear, simply get the color I chose for my faction, which is red
Any idea why is that?

Hi ginopiva,

Make sure you are using the "Required Effects Settings"

* Planet : Detail - Highest
* Ship : Detail - Highest, Extras - High , Bump - Low
* Building : Detail - Highest, Extras - High , Bump - Low

Try turning off
1. Use Team Colors
2. Show Mesh Team Colors

You need a reasonable graphics card and make sure it has the most recent graphics drivers.

Also a number of ships have relatively simple mesh textures i.e replicators

BTW: R5 will see new or updated meshes/textures for the fleets of the new races
