heck i'm an old player (relatively, had it for about 8 months), and these guides helped, stickying this would help a lot of new players out there, and old ones too.

Thank you so much for posting this, I'm already pouring over this information and I'm seriously considering deleting my designs and starting over again after this. (probably going to hold onto a few that are my favorites but still, mass purge incoming!!)

Edit: After reading this I did in fact delete all my ship designs in order to start over fresh. Some of these things are so obvious I can't believe I didn't realize them on my own. I realllly hope this thread gets stickied!!! Thank you again so much for posting this for us nooberts!

Well, message a moderator?

This collection helped me greatly. I too deleted all, or nearly all, of my designs but it finally helped me finish the basic missions. There are some items that need a buff, but even without them there is a frightening amount of depth, in a good way. I truly appreciate it when people put stuff like this together in such cases.

I've now dumped most of this onto the Gratuitous Space Battles Wiki at http://gratuitousspacebattles.wikia.com/wiki/Strategy_Guides. Any help expanding the wiki would be appreciated, hint hint... :-)

Stickied -- enjoy!

Folks, please feel free to post more links here leading to noob-helpful threads that you find on the other GSB subforums.

And there's also the wiki. Don't vandalize or clutter-up the wiki with irrelevant fluff, though. At least one player has already been banned for doing that (among many other problems of his creation).

I have to say, this thread http://positech.co.uk/forums/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=6633 helped me out a lot, figuring out the strengths and weaknesses of each race and what not. It doesn't include the DLC races, but someone could easily add them.

The above thread has a post by Aeson which really lays out a strategy for Campaign mode.
