Siege Cruisers

I'm just wondering whether anyone here has found any actual use for siege cruisers in DL2. At first they seem like decent enough units with a unique ability to fire missiles into enemy territories, but I have never really found any strategic use for them. If I had a lot of resources and sea ports ne...

Re: Units destroy everything!

The short answer is no. The only way to get rid of the minefield is to conquer the territory or successfully disarm the mines with a scout. Edit: Actually there have been a few times where enemy minefields still remain active even after conquering the territory. They bring down that territory's mora...

What elements of Deadlock II do you like/hate vs Original

What the title says. +I like the expanded sea additions. Sea platforms and more units make for a more interesting game. +The editor and the campaign are also great, adding to an otherwise straight forward game. +World resources are also a nice touch... low energy for martian, high endurium for alien...

Re: Your Deadlock Strategy?

In Deadlock II my first action is to start researching techs and go immediately for cloning. Once I've a stream of colonists coming in I let tech fall to the back burner until I've got 3 or 4 fully developed territories. By the time I'm researching lvl 3 techs, I expand my universities so I can get ...

Character Animations

I'm probably not the only one to notice that the original Deadlock game had some pretty decent character animations for their time. While not very 'lifelike' they were memorable and aged very well. Then Deadlock II came around and all of that was replaced with... cheap crap. Does anyone here know wh...

Re: Units destroy everything!

My god... it finally happened! I actually disabled a mine field! It took an ungodly number of tries, but it finally happened. Having taken ChCh-t research facility #1, I easily went on to take down the remaining two territories w/out much effort. Wow. I'm surprised at how much difference the absence...

Units destroy everything!

I'm playing the Human Shrine Wars campaign #4 and I cannot beat it for the worst reason... my military units either destroy everything or get destroyed themselves. If I select 'attack units only' they are destroyed by mines. And I cannot have them 'avoid mines' because then they destroy everything i...

Re: Replaying the Deadlock 2 Campaign

I remember this scenario. For no reason whatsoever enemy races seem to love settling in near your colony even if it means moving across the half the planet to do so. There is really no reason for a satellite settlement when you're starting a new game... it's as if they don't use money or have transp...

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 original...

100% failure rate for Disarm Mines

Has anyone ever had success with disarming enemy mines? Whenever I know that mines are in a given territory I've tried repeatedly with experienced scouts and have NEVER accomplished this. Not once in countless attempts. And yet I have had my own mines destroyed by enemy scouts... is the game rigged ...
