Hints & Cheat Codes
In need of resources? Try this cheat (doesn't work if you are the current regent) to get any resource except food:
Go to the Byzantium II screen, type in HDIRES.
A cursor will appear. Type in a number between 1 and 12, hit ENTER and type in the quantity you want (up to 999), hit (enter). Go back to the main screen and wherever your cursor was, there is now a cargo pod with the corresponding resource in it!
Need a better view? When a unit is in orbit around a planet or on the surface and has movement points left, go to the Byzantium II screen and type in HDIMAP to see the whole planet and all units, or HDIVIEW to see all planet maps.
When you first start a game make all of your buildings create one engineer. Then use the engineers that you start with (if any) and build one lab and one hospital.
If you have only one engineer build a hospital because a plague can strike at any time and you need to be ready for it.
Once all the buildings finish building engineers use those engineers to build labs. After you finished, count how many spaces surround the labs and build that many more engineers.
Once all the engineers that you need are done, build any other types of buildings around them so you can research restricted things.
Don't worry about the pop-up that says, "Are you sure you want to research this item?". Just say yes. If the church lands near labs that are researching restricted buildings just ignore them. The buildings you surrounded your labs with will protect you.
