Read over the v0.30 requirements doc: http://www.freeorion.org/index.php?titl ... quirements
I have to take some responsibility for the design process on v0.30 going a little haywire. This is partially due to the fact that we simply dealt with larger issues in v0.30 than we ever had before, and partially due to the fact that I just didn't have the time IRL to moderate and administrate as much as I should have. Nonetheless, we did have a lot of productive discussion and debate, and I think we've got an excellent foundation for FreeOrion.
But with the sheer number of things that went into v0.30, some details may have slipped through the crack. The design team ended up writing a lot that hadn't been through the public review process, either because the issue was not large enough to warrant one, or we were too exhausted from previous reviews. So this is your opportunity to go over the v0.30 document, raise questions, look at formulae, and, essentially, make us defend the requirements document.
This is not the time to gripe or complain
if you just hate the system. I'm talking about clarity and I'm talking about balance. If you don't understand something or you think the implementation or wording could be a little better, this is the space for it. This review will start off undirected, and then I will peek in after a couple days and see if any one subject needs either another thread or some more focus in this one.
Thanks to everyone for their patience!
