Just so everyone is aware, in stock FoC the AI has fog of war turned off, and can apparently spawn units after you retreat from a battle, even on medium difficulty. I know that there is a way to turn fog of war off, but I'm not sure if the spawning units can be removed.

Well, even in stock E@W the AI cheats a bit, especially when it comes to building units.

Just let the AI have a planet for a few seconds and there is a whole fleet up there, even without a space station.

Nope...I corrupted a rebel planet, it was conquered by empire (sometimes than the corruption is removed, sometimes not) and withoutany fleet flying towards the planet there is a fleet, 2 stormtrooperpelotons, 3 darktroopers and even 2 At-At's :P 5 seconds later a level 3 space-station appears from nothing...

Yeah, the fog of war thing is obvious. Especially when you have troops at a scan building (those structures that reveal whole map) and all their units go straight towards it and their artillary (without getting close) somehow targets the structure and blows it up.....
