Re: DL1: Overpopulation game mechanic

The ChCh't do have a built in morale advantage when it comes to overpopulation. They have double the overpopulation limit. They are less affected by it. The only disadvantage that the Maug have is that they recover lost morale slower than other races. Outside of the Cyth you can only recover 10 mora...

Re: DL1: Overpopulation game mechanic

If you modded the game to increase housing capacity you might have inadvertently changed the coding for morale for overcrowding as well. I have never noticed any advantage to having excess housing once you reach the 50 population limit. I will test this out however.

Re: Which race is your favourite?

But I enjoy the Maug personality more than the others, the way they complain their way through every activity is amusing! If research could be "carried over" from one project to another, Maug would be more powerful early on. Later, their research bonus becomes powerful against lower tech enemies. I...

Re: Which race is your favourite?

General race attributes: Cyth. Really like their gothic nature and interesting character design. Noticeably easier to play in DL2 because museums require a 3-turn upgrade period, one cannot satisfy overpopulation penalties of swamps/mountains, and demand 10 energy. HATE this change from the origina...

Re: Deadlock:Planetary Conquest Guide

AI Personalities The AI has five distinct personalities, which gives the game variety, as well as it can make for a much more difficult game based on "luck of the draw". The five personalities are as follows: attacker, spoiler,balanced,tech leader and builder. The personalities are completely indep...

Re: [OpenDeadlock Crowdsourcing Request] - Pop. Growth & Tax

Deadlocks apparently approximate these values so we cannot confirm how accurate they are. Could it be that the game is just dropping the numbers after the decimal point, as is done when converting non-whole numbers to integers? I.e. 27.8 becomes 27, 3.4 becomes 3, etc.? It does this for resource ca...

Re: Character Animations

They seem like two completely different games. After playing Deadlock II I assumed that they scrapped the original. They should have made Deadlock II look and play like Deadlock planetary conquest and just added a campaign.

Re: Character Animations

They are actually two completely different games as far as I can tell. I don't even think that they are built off of the same engine. They should have just improved on the original and added on a campaign.

Re: Deadlock:Planetary Conquest Guide

Dealing with the Skirineen The Skirineen represent the black market on the game, making a deal with them can have positive and negative affects. There is always a chance you might trigger a scandal, but you could use them to catch up or get ahead in your game. They are especially useful to sell res...
