I am new to playing this game. My only concern is that after playing for half an hour or so the Menu Display changes to a diferent style. I know it has to be part of the game but i do prefer the graphics before the change.
I would just like to know why it changes and is there anything i can do to stop it.
Perhaps this will help you choosing your alignment:
The following tips are collected from older posts in this forum:
"From a strategic point of view, the benefits of good (more likely to exchange trade, a trade booster wonder, trade centers planet improvement, more likely to ally, and immunity to the fundamentalists minor AI) may lend a benefit over the entire galaxy.
The evil choice may lend a benefit mostly on one planet in the galaxy (like a nice big PQ boost) and actually cause problems over time (less trade and watch out for the fundamentalists).
This is a generalization of sorts but some might find good a little easier on big maps with abundant habitability while evil might be easier on smaller maps or rare habitability.
So far those seem the major strategic advantages of good & evil to me. Can't have too many trade routes or too many bc but those fundamentalists can wreck a good party
The difference between your morality and that of any particular AI seems to affect how fast your relationship degrades...
If you are good, good races will like you more, evil less..."
you are very welcome to join the Jedi Empire * Link
But be warned. The dark side of the force is very powerfull and even a Jedi is not immune
We need assistance to keep our 3rd place
* Basically empires are nothing else as a list of players who join their score to compete on an additional level. A simple "join" click is all what you would have to do. But empires are more than that. They are a community, they are fun.
