I being what I am, have many many questions, given the length of my posts to date, can go on at some legnth at that. I will attempt to keep these shorter.
First up, just curiosity, I have seen some of the screens, and noticed( most likely incorrectly) that for each of the factions, not all the ships look as though the same mind crafted it. It looked almost as if there were different teirs of ships that could be researchd. It is hard to really explain, so I will jsut as the question.... When creating your fleet, do you unlock certain ships as you go done certain lines? For example, if you do extensive research into rocketry and missles, will you ships look different then say if you went down the way of energy based weapons or will there even be reasearch since you can customize your ships, what really is hte point to it?
If there is research, what areas are there to be researched and how will they effect he empire/ships/races...?
Is it possible ot specialize in certain areas? By that, I do mean specialize. In most RTS games I have seen that say you can specialize, they say something like we have 60 techs to research over 4 catagories, and you can specialize in any one of them. Well, what that acually means is that you can research one catagory and be specailzed but then you go and research all the rest and then, your just like everyone else; Or, your can do something similar to that, but then you can get plus 5!!!!! to your score at lasers (or something) yet the total range is 120, so while everone else is at 120, your at 125 and they call that specialized. I am asking if you can truely specialize in something or somethign to the effect of your have 50 standard techs, that everyone can research, and then like 60 tech in 6 catagories that you can only research one catagory and you wont know the others, unless you trade or conquer them or something. You know somehting fun.
That should be kinda ok to start with.
Still trying ot bring my post size done a bit.
