How bad the OCV is?

I had a litcube playthrough some time ago, and while the tools and the whole framework was really nice it did not leave me much time to just fool around and spend hours on stuff not related to prep for the next attack. Is it similar here?

To be honest with you, you probably have even less time :)
But was the OCV in Litcube really that fast? I remember them needing days to even get out of the Omycron Channel. I always thought it would require them weeks, or maybe months of gametime to take over everything, because they only have one place to get resources from.

Mayhem is less sandboxy, because it requires you to start building your empire right away. In my opinion there is still plenty of downtime, but if LU was uncomfortably pressuring for your taste, Mayhem might not be the mod for you.

Iirc it was significantly faster, but it was probably more then a year ago, might be pacing changed since then.

I choked them at their entrance to commonwealth, and in a couple hours a new strong wave appeared every time as i recall. Had 4 SY with supoort plexes and i needed that production to feel safe.

I believe you can disable/modify the OCV in Mayhem. I've never bothered to mess with it because the OCV hasn't been a huge pain. (L)OWP's are very useful.

Yep, you can even change the threat level required to trigger them. There are many things that can be customized in Mayhem.
9972-L044.xml has a big list with descriptions, found in the folders addon/t/

Thanks!

Now that i think of it my last game was a bit after rebirth came out, so it was much more then a year :D
If it's that easy to customise it can't be an issue anyway.
