As for the suggestion of chipping away at them.. it sounds like a great idea, except for once this empire seems to be fighting back! They were working as hard to expand as I was, my planet of Shaolis (purple spice) changed hands 4x with us before I finally snatched it back and held it down. Im almost afraid to planet bust at this point for fear of what they might do to me in return. :P

Probably your best bet is to start another saved game i the same arm as the nauceans -- but far enough away that you can build them up to being really powerful before you meet the naceans, and then attack.

Good luck with this epic campaign!

Who knew the Nauceans could be so brutal? They've clearly amassed a formidable empire. It's a world away from my own experiences; I've got a small clutch of Nauceans, friendly as anything, a small system-hop away from Earth.

I don't think I could handle that kind of military might though.  :o

Only trouble is, they're Whose Line Is It Anyway points, which are infamously not worth anything.

I'd go on a suicide mission to the center of their Empire and blow their homeworld away with a Planet Buster shot.

That might make them a bit more receptive to...negotiations.

I wonder if the AI in the game takes that sort of stuff into consideration? Hmm....

Nope. It would just piss them off more and you'd get a "YOU BLEW UP OUR PLANET! -50 (or something)" penalty to relations.

That sounds awesome and exciting.

I'm interested too, what difficulty are you playing on?

Could be that Maxis made their favorite fan creature like that.

Was it the naucean BY hydro? or a copy off?

On the subject of planet-busting, the worst that could happen would be that you make your allies angry with you, and they become another aggressor on your planets, but personally I'm all for the experiment.

Evil Nauceans from the depths of darkness!

Speaking of Nauceans, I was playing as one in the Creature stage, was attacked by an epic tripod thing, and ran through herds of Bunt.

I had a situation like this. I cant remember the aliens name but they were attacking every planet I had and were taking over all my new systems. Then I got angry. So I did the same thing, taking over thier colonies and eventually destroying their race. Conquest expands ur space realy fast.

If you destroy/conquer enough of their planets in a short amount of time they'll ask for a cease fire. Just make sure to turn off your auto turret so you don't accidentally blow up their remaining ships and instantly restart the war.

moremoney cheat and giving them max amount of tribute resets the ally bar, and you can make em your allies :-D

I had this one-star system empire (thus 1 planet to conquer) attacking me, while they were blue. Probably because I completely surrounded them and they couldn't progress. So they started bombing my colonies. I said heeellll no.


And blew them up.

I found the Naucean empire once, they didn't like me at first but I gave them money and stuff and I was able to ally with them.
