stefaen: Pfft, you're trying to invalidate my claim that the OPs intention was not the same as yours? By quoting select text from the OP...
Dude, the OP is right up there, and there's something you didn't include in your quote. I'll paste it right here for you:

babelcorporation: What's your setup?

stefaen: You're the one that needs to stop pretending.
I have nothing about a "claim that the OPs intention was not the same as yours" (its likely true, as if i had the same intention id made such thread already). I just pointed that stuff like speed, efficiency, quality were already stated in OP, its not something that was added later or so. Ofc its up to you to feel intention that after OP directly used words "Best race setup" for topic, then used expressions like "best picks to succeed" "can quickly end up dominating the game" and "from a fairly early point in play" while describing his own example he actually meant "go tell me any random stuff about moo2 you can manage, everything will fit here". Just its not really helpful, as its too easy to feel anything you like such way every given time.

And im not very sure, what did you meant bout quoting that formal question? Without it OP would just share a some own thoughts, without formally inviting for a discussion, thats all.

Fight it out in a round of MoO2 multi-player instead of here!

In a single player game, the best is of course the one you enjoy playing.

It will serve way less educational purpose; its explanation, not "fight".

Thats essentially misleading. But of course player could stick to "what suit him best, no matter what else do exist". But, in this case, that player shouldnt get an idea to ask something about strategy (as he doesnt care about outside world, only that he's already "enjoy playing" do matter for them); nor get the idea to share own info with others (as he should expect from them what they doesnt care about outside world too, only that they are already "enjoy playing" do matter for him). Problem essentially arrives when you mix the 2, and jump into certain discussion about something only to share something on a ground of "but i like it" instead of actual theme.

Suppose there is a thread about "Best football teams of season 2000-2001".
Unless its clearly stated otherwise in thread, and deriving from the topic, to contribute something to it, user have to share some info about some football team that has been actually best in something in that season. Definition can be broad, actually even different sports possible here (unless its clarified inside), and "best" could be diverse too, could be "top of table of country X" or "most goals scored in season" etc.
But its of no contribution to come there and write "for me the best always is FC YYY, its my home team and im follow it, i dont care how they do perform, they are always best for me and this season too, despite they got demoted ". Surely for this guy it could be true, but allowing such stuff in thread named "Best football teams of season 2000-2001" will essentially turn it into "Any random football teams of season 2000-2001" thus into some junk chatterbin. As it will imply that some personal non-grounded feelings of some guy is equal for some actual info on a theme for others to read, as it takes a space in thread. That is essentially egocentric and wastage of time for other users.

Its essentially weird to share blatantly banal stuff like "the best is what one is enjoyng", as not only its not always true, but if you really guided by it you dont have to interfere at all.

But guys, you're overlooking the fact that MoO2 is inferior to MoO1 and you're wasting your time arguing about it : )

Have you tried out Ray Fowlers Remnants of the Precursors?
Its literally a 1:1 remake of MoO1 with improved Ui, and optional enhancements,
number of systems is only limited by the amount of ram in your computer.
Atm at alpha 4, running rather stable and in case of occasional crash using the last save solves the issue in 99%,
only several races and manual ship combat are still missing.
In case find discussion and links at reddit.com/r/rotp/
I think it was like 22 years age when i played master of Orion 2 put These positive picks are very top notch:

Creative (8)
Subterranean (6)
Unification (6)

Cost : 20

The negatives:

Cost: - 10

Low-G World (-5) can be undone later with some Kind of gravity Generator
Spying (-3) with the creative Talent you get some techs to easily negate this
Ground Combat (-2) also with creative Talent you get upgrade techs from the creative Talent which you would normally not take when you have to choose 1

I think thats it …

Ah on unification if forgot you would loose the morale Bonus so it's decent but not so powerful; the production Bonus clearly better than Food production Bonus mid to late game, Food production in the beginning.

Creative and subterranean are always great
