Re: Crash [5872]

Oh yeah, the fleet-dragging bug again :lol:
Try dragging ~4 fleets from low down in the fleet window to the "New fleet" button, I think that worked once for me to reproduce it?

Re: Tech Tree UI

Why was the tech navigator removed? I though it was very useful for jumping to the techs a tech unlocks that are in another category when you are looking at just the category the tech itself is in (though it was admittedly sometimes buggy).

Re: Feedback on 5853

How about a late-game Artificial Neutron Star tech, on the analogy of Artificial Black Holes? The ANS could only be built at a blue star, and activating it might produce an effect similar to a nova bomb, to provide a large drawback. Of course, some way to preserve one planet in the system would be n...

Re: IDEA: research/industry priority

Well, if the projects/techs are balanced, it seems the turns would be just the right length and making the ability to finish them faster might be a bad idea, since the whole point is to slow people down even for very high producers. doubling the cost of a technology to produce it in half the time w...

Re: Fuel-- do we need it?

I'm wondering if i can do a decent prototype with scripting. a) I know i can remove the need for fuel. b) not sure if i can reduce speed based on being supply connected. There's a starlaneConnected condition, and a SetStarlaneSpeed Effect, aren't there? You could check in each hull's effects (using...

Re: Feedback on 5853

One minor bug which i've forgot to mention in the previous versions: you do not need to place an outpost on an asteroid to get the production bonus from Microgravity Industry . It is sufficient to have an outpost ship idling in the system. I havent checked if this applies to exobot colony ships as ...

Re: ground troops

Strange, I always use the static multicellular hull for troop ships after I research it for the rest of the game. I had thought that it was cheaper than the organic hull, maybe I had been wrong. It does have 5 slots instead of 4, so you can give it ten troops rather than 8.

Re: ground troops

anyways those 2 questions relate to the battle dynamics of the original MOO the first question was how many times does a single ship weapon fire during a single round of combat in this game [freeorion] There is an ROF stat for weapons in the script files. I remember that combat mechanics were revis...

Dilvish added a sitrep for the previous owner, so you will get notified if this happens in the future (if you use an svn build).

Re: Quick play guide

Isn't the fact that some buildings can't be built if the infrastructure is too low (and reduce the infrastructure) also important?

Rev 5807: I just conquered this system and don't understand why/how AI had ~50PP higher industry output. I'm teched all the way up and my Solar Orbital Generator is within a blue star. Does AI get a production bonus on aggressive? I'm probably just missing something obvious, someone help me out ple...

Re: Help with EffectsGroups

What does "Planet Population low = <number> high = <number>" mean? The Effects article section on meter value conditions describes this accurately: ...LOW specifies the lowest allowed value of the meter, and HIGH specifies the highest allowed value. Either of the LOW and HIGH parameters may be omit...

Re: Help with EffectsGroups

I was trying to script some stuff involving outposts, and was trying to figure out the "standard" way to determine outpost status (there isn't one, to wit: some use TargetPopulation, some Population, some use low = 1 (which seems like a bad idea) and some use NOT <condition> high = 0) and I had a fe...
