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 ...

P.S. Welcome to the board MaugTheInfirm!
The game can usually be won before this point.

Re: What difficulty level do you play Deadlock at?

I play boosted or supercharge. Usually with fast production (for quicker games) and either 7 or 10 city centers. I have beaten the game with every race at 100% difficulty though.

Re: Deadlock Walthrough: How to beat on 100% difficulty

The Cyth are definitely the worst, as they lose 20% of you workforces effectiveness with no way to remedy the situation. I remember a few years back (I don't play Deadlock today as much as I did, that's not to say I love it any less), I played as the Cyth on 100% difficulty and built and defended 5...

Re: Deadlock Walthrough: How to beat on 100% difficulty

"And lastly the Maug. ... On 100% difficulty, this is almost impossible to reach." I just played a 100% difficulty game as Maug using the settings wobombat mentions. Actually I'm still playing, but on turn 114 I have every square of the map except for a Tarth square without an army in it. I disagre...

Re: Deadlock Walthrough: How to beat on 100% difficulty

A few points/corrections here 1) You can still have a scandal even if you buy/sell items in an unpopulated territory. The scandal will randomly happen in another populated territory. 2) Avoiding building planes is a mistake, they are the most powerful units in the game 3) Transportation costs can be...

Re: Introduction

I think that the "lack of love" for deadlock has to do with the fact that it's an old game (1996) and only had one sequel. SimCity and Civilization have had several sequels, offshoots and advertising money poured into them, that's why they are more popular. If both of those games had stopped after ...
