Unlimited Money Glitch:
In order to get unlimited money, you must first instruct one of your
planets to construct a colony ship. DO NOT PURCHASE THE SHIP. If you
did that, it should say that there are 25 months left before construction
is completed. Go back to the planet when there are only 2 or 3 months
remaining. Click PURCHASE. Then click on the scout from the ship list.
Now, you should have 4 payment options. Choose the one on the top. Click
ACCEPT. You should now have an extremely large sum of money. Although not
technically unlimited, it should be more than you could ever spend.
“REAL” Warp Drive:
If you move your ship out the corner of a border quadrant at
the border, your ship will appear in the next quadrant in the
same square you attempted to “leave”. This is obviously a way of
moving REAL FAST (done in a Dave Barry voice).
Population Growth via “Shore Leave”:
If you remove all the troops from a transport, leave and then
return that ship to its homeworld, it will instantly gain another
20,000 troops (20 legions). Repeat as needed. As a note, this
is also a bug. In the bug state, your transport full of legions
gets “repaired” to the 20 level.
You can always save the game after it starts and then map out
the universe. It would probably be easiest to do a and then annotate the print-out. Then, restart.
Since the AI doesn’t cheat, you can be a true prophet and
know exactly what is going to happen.
