Thank you. If I may?
1. Trying my hand at Advent, and have gained access to that lvl 6 ability "Resurrection". Looks nice, but I have no clue as to when/how to use it. How can I target a ship if it is destroyed -- or do I need to just go around targeting all my ships before they are destroyed? I set "autocast: off", like I do on all abilities, but am unsure how this works in general. Thanks for the advice.
2. Still playing SP until I understand this game, and can see that when I load a saved game, I can change the difficulty settings. A question about that, if I may: Do the different settings just involve cheating (boni the AI gets over a human player) or are different smartness algorithms used? I am guessing on the former. If so, I wonder what the boni are -- if the same genre-typical boni are used (more economic boni, better starting conditions)? Does anyone know? Also, if I can change the settings, I could conceivably start on, say, difficult, then switch to normal, then back to difficult if it is too hard -- and there will be a difference in terms of what the AI can do from the same situation?
