Space Empire V or IV Deluxe?
I wonder which on try, the V or IV Deluxe? I have read in IV forum that it's not a good game without mods. But search what mods will make it good could be time hungry so not for me.

But I wonder is the V really better?

You will find people that prefer one or the other. Some people really like V. Other people think V killed the series. Overall, I don't think you'll find a non-biased answer to this question. V plays a bit different than IV. V uses scripted AIs, IV did not. This means you can download mods that make the AI better. Some people prefered the 2D rather than 3D approach. Space Empires IV is 2D. V is 3D.

Well thanks for the informations to decide between the two. I gave up because for both I got the feeling they didn't play well without mods and I'm not in a mood to start a mods hunt even before have play a game.

But at next sales if there's any, I won't forget the differences you explained.

Mmm coming back when I saw the sale is still on even if it will end this WE.

I don't understand that mods points, it's like the game isn't good without them but nobody could quote few mods to use to fix the gameplay.

Also I did understood there was also AI mod to use with IV but you seem mention it's only for V.

Can you clarify this point? Or advise few mods to start with to fix the AI?

Long time player of this series here. The game is great without mods imo. I think that people say it is best with mods because everyone else seems to be saying that. The only issue that I have is that the mouse really bogs down in the game to most people.

Thanks for your opinion, I suppose your comment is for Space Empire V? Perhaps both, I know 2/3$ isn't much but it's for trying the series, not trying the whole series.

EDIT: Ha well, between both and only the V the difference is 1.24, well Euro for me, but even if a waste, I'll take my chance.
