Well, the only thing you can do is to keep restarting (Amnesia) and improve your stats. Probably a good strategy to get the most out of it is to Amnesia first at 100, then at 110, then at 120 and so on - then, when you reach level 150 after 4 Amnesias, you should find it a lot easier to beat that boss.
Either it was changed in a recent patch, or I got it wrong in the first place. No wonder my expansion was so difficult, as I always had to build Frontier Outposts first 🙂 I will update the guide to reflect this.
Thanks for the heads up, I corrected the typo. I still believe that colonies should be created ASAP and every player should rush to have 5 as soon as possible, mostly for the fleet advantage after building their Starports. There is no reason to keep Frontier Outposts after building the colony, the resources required to keep them alive can be easily used somewhere else.
You need a Frontier Outpost to colonize a planet outside your empire's borders - that was what I meant in the article. Of course, if there are no good planets to colonize, but great resources to be had, you should build one as well.
Clark, your problem is most likely the graphics card. You're probably playing on a laptop. You need a good, dedicated graphic card in order to be able to play the game and that's where your problems are coming from.
