We are excited to release the first Chapter in a series of Let's Play videos that will show the full arc of a Star Traders 4X Empires game.
Each chapter will endeavor to have a focus so that they can be useful on their own. Of course, this is just Andrew playing 4X. He's not the best, but he knows some stuff, so you are getting my play style and my play preference, which should still be pretty informative.
Chapter 1 - Starting an Empire In Chapter 1, I play the first twenty minutes of a new Star Traders 4X Empires game and establish the core worlds of my new civilization.
The first chapter ends when I reach the turning point of completing research on Starship Construction 1 and am able to begin expanding.
Chapter 2 - Expanding an Empire In Chapter 2, I play the next 30 minutes of my fledgling Star Traders 4X Empires game. I expand my civilization from its humble 3 colony and $110 / turn start to a 6 colony empire making almost $400 / turn.
The second chapter ends as I start to install the first Exchanges on my worlds and look to change direction within the technology tree.
