Re: Tech idea: Wormhole Generator

I remember wormholes at Stars! game. This anomaly had interesting features: 1) It was a option when player / host creates a game. 2) End of wormhole was created at deep space (something like between stars). It can be created at FO as inside planetary system or at deep space with stalanes to closest ...

Re: Stockpiles

Stockpile idea makes management flexible but no resource on planets (available at planet capture). Planetary resources make management inflexible (transport between planets) but possible to capture resources when planet is capturing. Solution: - keep resources globally (to avoid micromanagement) - c...

Re: Stockpiles

Would eliminating the stockpile make the economy system even more inflexible, since if for example important mining or farming systems are lost and the empire`s food or mineral production drops below the empire`s need for these resources, the whole economy will suffer significantly until the player...

Re: How to compile rev.3955

The problem might be an incompatibility between XP and later version of some DLLs. Could you try renaming wrap_oal.dll to something else wrap_oal.dll.bak and trying again? If it complains that that file is missing, try finding the one from the installed version of FreeOrion (v0.3.15). Partially suc...

Re: How to compile rev.3955

1. Did you get the FreeOrion SDK, or just the source code? 2. Have you built FreeOrion previously on that system? 1. No. Only the source code available to download by TortoiseSVN application. 2. Not again. It was not possible on my machine, so I unzipped revision available as TAR.GZ file and put on...

Re: Newbie: First Play (v0.3.15) and First Thoughts

Each planet is food and minerals producer/collector. So, if empire is destroyed all collected goods are disappear? I'm confused about why you mention planetary population in this context. When you take a planet you get all the surviving population added to your empire. Where is a source of this info...

Re: Galaxy Map designator for known/unknown systems

The better way than sensors is a ship / scout in system. If we talk about "sensors" we should know - type of sensor for ships only - type of sensor for colonized planet (like radar station) - how to calculate range if few sensors are installed - how to build technology patch for sensors But if we ta...

Re: Newbie: First Play (v0.3.15) and First Thoughts

The simplicity of a central stockpile seems necessary for ease of programming and gameplay. Some sort of visual aid along starlines would be very useful for seeing what is connected and what is not (elezar's example seemed good). This means that a central distribution point may be an essential buil...

Re: Diplomacy model / Diplomacy AI

Trade 1. Goods to trade At this forum is many many posts about "how to trade" but no list of goods to trade. But what is a "trade"? Trade is for me diplomatic offer with goods exchange. But we can prepare other diplomatic offers - so the trade as goods exchange is a special situation in diplomacy. ...

Re: Diplomacy model / Diplomacy AI

On it's own, it's not especially useful to write a big long list of the features you want to see. Though diplomacy hasn't been nailed down, there's been discussion on the topic for instance: here . Your ideas will make a bigger impression if you explain why they are more fun, more understandable, a...
