Re: What are the differences between DL1 & DL2?

They are two totally different games. The controls for Deadlock 2 are very clunky. The graphics look like something out of the original Nintendo from the mid 1980s, Deadlock 1 looks good even compared to games from the 2000s. You also can not allocate workers individually to buildings in Deadlock 2 ...

Re: Artillery disappearing

There is a stacking limit in deadlock 1, but it isn't very difficult to deal with. It is 2 Artillery 4 infantry and 3 Air units. You can not go over 3 sea or 4 warheads either. Deadlock 2 is no where near the game that Deadlock 1 is. I played it twice, the controls are cluncky and the graphics are t...

Re: Community Multiplayer Games - Deadlock 1 or 2?

I would say Deadlock I, I never liked Deadlock II, I played the demo a few times, it seemed very clunky compared to the original.

Re: Deadlock - Official 20th Anniversary Topic

I still think the original Deadlock is one of the best designed games ever. The only strategy game that I would say is on equal footing with it is Galactic Civilizations II. The game still looks relatively good today graphically, the races, for the most part are well balanced. I really didn't care m...

Re: Deadlock - Official 20th Anniversary Topic

I found Deadlock in a bargain bin for $10 and enjoyed the character of the manuals and back story enough to get my $10 worth. My typical Deadlock game featured me in 3 territories at the corner of a map, with all AIs against me to keep it interesting. Only then would I get enough attacks and sabota...

Re: 3 questions

My experience is only with deadlock 1. Did your enemy have citizens in their territory? Do citizens fight in deadlock 2 like they do on deadlock 1? Those citizens could kill off a lot of units. Troopers probably have higher military capabilities than scouts as well. Stronger units can kill several w...

Re: Deadlock 2 : Increase Population ?

This answer only pertains to Deadlock 1, could be different for deadlock 2 Food does not affect population growth at all. You can play Cyth without any food and still grow your population as fast as any other race except the Chch't. I posted the following elsewhere as part of a larger post: Populati...

Re: Deadlock 2 questions.

Fuel depots are basically landing strips. Think of them as airports that you can't build units in. They are only useful to extend the range of your planes. It's a waste to build them unless you need to get to a territory out of the range of your airports. If you have ever gotten the warning that if ...
