update 1.40m (copy over 1.40m)
h t t p : //realmsbeyond.net/forums/showthread.php?tid=7331

1.40n features
- [bug] AI does not DOW randomly, because its ally is in war with HP. Instead, AI now has a chance to DOW on any player, who is in war with its ally
- [bug] Militarist and Expansionist AI will use military advantage against opponents who have significantly smaller fleet, not vice-versa (against much bigger fleet). This bug was particulary harmful to early militarists, like Mrrshans or non-honourable Alkaris.
- AI to AI diplomacy has been corrected. AIs should exchange a lot more technologies, should correctly keep their alliances or NAPs.
- Active AI spying delayed to ease quicker start into campaign. Rational spending in spying. More incentive to steal technologies from opponents.

THANKS KYRUB

Oh, lovely! Thanks for telling!

Hmm, I always thought the enemies started spying actively at just the right moment for the first game to be fun but maybe a lot of others have had problems. Must try it before saying more.

Sadly one big bug still pulls the games (MoO 1+2) down for newbies: The blue infoboxes at the beginning of a turn still stop all too often before they have gone through all that there was to do, like resetting the shields slider after building a shield or factories after reaching max allowed. Of course, clicking through them is not such a big joy either.

Help please. The version from gog.com works fine, but when I install the patch from this download, any time I click the mouse the screen flashes black and it behaves as a cancel. So I'm unable to change any settings or start a game.
So, still playing this awesome game in 2018! Because it's the best, that's why.

But I was wandering, do you guys know of newer patches than 1.4.n? Or mods?

And another question, if I may: is there any way to refit your ships? As in MoO2? (sry for the noob question)

None. Makes the game totally different from the second game.

I agree the game is good. I now remember I had some plans to write some guides but kind of forgot about it :-(

oh, please do write those guides! Sirian did a fantastic job back then (2010?), but a more "modern" take would be splenid!

10x for the reply! Just one question, if I may: how do I know I have the latest patch insallted?

DaEpicVoid:
GOG.com sells the game with the last official patch installed (and MoO2 with the old UNofficial patch). See post #14 for how to check that you have the unofficlal patch installed.

Just a reminder that this is the thread about the unofficial patch and we should not derail it too much.

Yup, you're absolutely right. 10x for your patience. And for othrer scatterbrained people like me, please notice that if you just press M and see the year displayed you're all good.
