|As for the Farm race ...
The bad thing:
Since I couldn't keep my big mouth shut in the OWW thread the host asked me to handicap my race ... I learned my lesson now.
So I took an SS, IMHO next to HE somewhat the worst PRT in a tiny OWW game. The cloack doesn't matter much, there is simply no place to hide (especially not for SDs and JoaTs), and since you have only one world ... well ...
In my hubris I even went further and made it a "HP race" ... 1/2500 resources ...
If I would ever conquer a second HW without factories it would take long to get it up to speed ...
The good thing:
What I learned about my previous OWW experience is that you run short on minerals eventually (and rather fast once you start building), when that happens you'll have to manage with the fleet that you have, if you lose it you're dead (even with your HW intact), no way to build up a second fleet.
So I tried to get my mine settings as good as I could get, sacrificing resources. This turned out very well since I mined 1000kT per mineral each turn, more than enough to build 4 weap16 beamer BBs per turn, limit here were my resources.
