Seems like a nice game, but...
Is there any way of setting the AI difficulty? I seem to find a lot of options at the game start menu, but none seem to allow me to set the AI's intelligence. I played two games and I never saw any of them doing anything but build a few ships and colonize 1-4 systems. I couldn't figure out ground combat or any advanced ships and never felt any need to: I never had any opposition. It feels like I am missing something, but I can't find any way to make things more interesting.

I also see that people are having issues running the game: I never had any problems except for a few minor annoyances when alt-tabbing. I guess I'm lucky with that.

The vanilla AI is really quite boring and dull, there is an option to change difficulty and actually give the AI bonuses above you in the beginning, this can be found under the 'Empires' tab when setting up a new game, on the bottom log, all you need to do is scroll down and you should find it.

However if you want to make them really interesting, I strongly suggest getting Captian Kwok's Balance Mod, this fixed many of the unbalanced aspects of the game and can make the AI a lot better to play against, some people claim that they're still really easy, but I've been having quite a lot of trouble with the AI in my matches, so their probably pros, and even they say setting them to hardest difficulty and giving them a bonus can make the AI a challenge. I have yet to find anyone who has been able to say they've won a match with out cheats that involve the hardest difficulty with max bonus in the balance mod. Good Luck!

Thanks, I'll give that a shot. Much appreciated.
