hehe. I remember those.

Thats ok though. I think the current incarnation of FO looks pretty damn good, obviously as the project progresses refinements will be applied and our talented artists will be able to streamline and "beautify."

As I read over the changes that have happened in my absence, I see buildings will be the new standard. I just hope that they aren't turned into a chore, more of a delay until a technology is implemented.

I really REALLY hated its intro. The show was ok, but I like voyager much better.

We could call them.... Imperial Focus Points . Yes, that sounds good. I like that name, its kinda catchy. DIE My only problem with Role-Playing is how is it supposed to affect the game? What purpose would it have? And most importantly would it detract from the "MoO" feel. Now if we are simply talki...

I was thinking that "tech levels" were techs that were all availible at about hte same time. There is no game mechanicn that restrcits you to a certain level or anything. In moo2 you had 8 category's and each one had three techs per level. Each tech cost the same and unless you were creative you cou...

Well I was assuming your tree was complete. I count 5 levels of tech. So yea that is too few. Make sure you realize that levels are different then indivdual techs. A tech "level" is made up of all the techs you have researched at a certain amount. Say all techs that cost 30 RP for 5 turns make up a ...

Number of techs? (I'm talking to you fellow tech mods)

The techs we have been coming up with are great and all, however, where does it end? i.e. How many levels of tech will we have. If every single tech does +1 to maxMeter i guess we are goign to have 100 tech levels? I'm thinking since we have limited resources as far as art etc is concerned we should...

Good, though aren't Organic Structures and Bioadaptive Structures pretty much the same thing, unless you mean that Bioadaptive Structures evolve to fit into the natural ecosystem, eg becomes more like a forest, because its in a forest. Not really that important to make a distinction as the name is ...

Add some unemployment increase, that would be cool. only problem is, wtf does unemployment do? Is it good or bad? Does it increase or decrease production, etc. etc. Right now we have no happiness or unrest or unemployment or anything defined in the effects. Now we MAY eventually, but until we do do...

Since construction team started discussing infrastructure, I posted my infrastructure levels idea there . Since it definelty overlaps with some growth things, you may want to take a look at it.

Drek has a valid point. The way of thinking about a tech is most important as an effect and less about the "realistic" view of a tech. But so far so good, just come up with a little more backstory about each individual tech. Also more early game techs, and less perentage and more hard numbers.

The effects of construction have alredy been losely defined. There are still a few things to be decided (like whether or not a planet gets an innate defensive advantage for being developed). But for the most part look here for your construction concernes. http://www.freeorion.org/wiki/index.php?titl...

BB: I'm fairly sure that we will have some method of speeding research. Either through better research, wonders, government choices, etc. I also assume that this "learning" catergory will be the place for it.
