Main menu difficulty levels?

What do they do? I asked this question in another thread but received no attention. I know what the AI difficulty levels do, but this is a mystery to me.

Re: Ability to change difficulty mid-game

I was actually talking about AI difficulty, the slider thing (EDIT: not a slider in 3.1), not the one in the menu, which I suppose the cheat would change. Um, what's the difference, anyway?

Re: Active Pause

Anyway, and obviously, one wouldn't have to use the feature, so it would be there for those who want it. Everyone else wouldn't have to touch it. Win win.

Re: Active Pause

The definition of turn-based is you have turns. Pausing the game doesn't equal having turns. It's a comfort feature, like speeding up to avoid boredom.

P.S. Yeah, I'd love to figure out why slowing down and speeding up don't work for me. I think I'll try a reinstall before anything else.

Re: Active Pause

It MIGHT be enough if it worked, but as noted above, no such luck for me. I also wonder why it is that ALL the other modern RTS's have this function but not this one... you don't want a RTS you want a turn based game this game is over 8 years old, why do you think it is modern? Because it's still b...

Any map with oil only at bases?

Has anyone come across such a map, where fighting for oil fields isn't the main focus of the game, but rather amassing large equal armies and sending them off to one another's bases? If so, link or name please. The map would have to be new enough to work with the newer versions of the game (unless s...

Re: Active Pause

gives the AI an unwanted edge If only that was true. The AI completely fails to use this edge, and i've spend a lot of weeks trying to make him use it properly, but i pretty much couldn't (: I think you have been successful at least early game. I tried nullbot light on hard, but after a couple of f...

Re: Active Pause

By the way, nothing happens when I press ctrl minus. And if I press ctrl equals, the game assigns a unit to a group. I also tried changing the key mappings for increasing and decreasing game speed but nothing happened (I reported it as a bug about key mappings not being able to be changed, but on re...

Re: Active Pause

Well, I suppose slowing down (even to a pause) serves the same purpose, but I don't find it as user friendly as instant pausing would be. Surely it's a feature that can be added?
