I was looking for an answer in the manual, but didn't find it so I'm asking here - does galactic resources boost your, let's say morale, generally in whole galaxy, or just in the sector where starbase with resource is ?
btw. can you give me some useful links or advices how to reach 60 000 points per game - I've recently won my first masochistic, large map game with every vistory condition on and all 5 races ( vanilla GC 1.22 ) via alliance vicotry but still I got only 32 k points instead of 60 k - how I can reach highest score possible ?
You get much more points for Military Conquest wins. Have a look here Link
You can get a military win without a single shot, when you disable culture win and assimilate all AIs.
Unfortunately it is much easier to get 60k with AP. AFAIK the biggest difference is 7 AIs versus 5 AIs. This is a bit inconsistent since for me it is easier to play against more AIs due to better diplomacy possibilities (i.e. trading technologies).
Without AP you need a military win on a gigantic map to get 60k. It is possible to get 60k on a huge map with a military win, or an alliance win on a gigantic map, but in both cases you need some additional scoring.
You can get additional scoring via:
- population growth (not in the end game phase), this is one reason why 100% moral/approval is so important at the beginning
- destroy AI ships in fights
- research technologies
Again great reply Walldorf2000 - I cannot play against 7 AI's yet ( my GC Gold had no serial to Altarian Prophecy inbox and I have to wait for Stardock support help ), so I will use your advices regarding vanilla for now.
Oh, one more question - if I will turn off Alien Technologic Victory ( and mine too ) will it affect my final score in negative way ? ( in last game I was barely able to outspeed AI in techs and only because I turned all expenses on research - in fact alliance victory was lucky shot because I was aiming at tech victory already ).
