The Solar Federation

 

Citizens of the Solar Federation are the happiest humans in the Universe, since they see work as a hobby. Members of the Federal fleet usually are curious and highly moral; naturally, they make good friends with all the natives they discover. Federation starships exist in a wide variety of different designs which are all quite well engineered. Continue reading

  • Part I – Abilities, Ships, Weapons
  • Part II – Tactics & Strategy

The Federation Player in VGA Planets

I am a fairly new player to VGA planets, and I am still surviving in my first (a beginners) game as the Federation player (due more to luck and good allies than my planning, I’m thinking <g>). I have heard and read a lot about the weaknesses and disadvantages of the Federation race as a position, and I must admit, a lot of them are true. But I would Continue reading

The Solar Federation

There exists a rather vocal group of players in the VGAP community who swear that the Feds are THE race to play. Let me make it clear from the start, that I am not one of these players. I’ll take the Lizards over the Feds any day of the week and twice on Sundays, but that’s a story for another time. Today we’re here to discuss getting the Continue reading

Loki Logic

This is the first in a series of articles I’m writing on tools and tactics for fighting against the Privateers. We’ll begin with what I consider the most effective tool: The Loki Class Destroyer. This will cover how to use them and how to protect them in various situations.
