Major problem in my game and don't know if it is worth going on but am playing a synthetic custom race, turn 81 and NO durantium on the whole map it seems. Gone to every opponent diplomatic screen and none have any durantium plus my colonies have zero and have explored a lot of space and none anywhere. Is it worth going on?
That is annoying. The prob with all of this is that it's pretty much impossible to have a balanced game (between the diff races) with resources set to 'rare'.
Ideally, I like to play without too much resource spam, but it so severely crimps synths/silicates that it's really just not possible to do. The only balancing action that I can see would be to provide some alternative avenue for constructing population. Or making carbon/water based races rely somehow on the same types of resource allocations. Such as making food a resource floating out in space, then requiring food for pop growth..
I had a game just like yours and started over. Not sure if it's possible to mod a save game to add a resource or not..
