Re: Fuel vs Supply—feedback needed

1) Have you found you use fuel parts more? 2) If you are using fuel, at what tech level do you find you cease to do so? (eg: Orbital Construction, Gravitic Architecture, Galactic Infrastructure) 3) Do you ever research the more advanced fuel parts? 4) Can you imagine ever designing a ship using the...

Re: Splitting up the "ship" tech category

I thought Engineering was a great name. Loading this up I realized it is not clear that this is related to ships, despite the color matching. Screenshot.png Probably needs to be prefixed with Ship, maybe "Ship Eng."? Better still might be to adjust line and box height to support two rows, then defi...

Oh, I wasn't aware of that, but it makes sense.

Ship Based Production and Research Parts

Onboard manufactories and research post parts need to be created This sounds interesting, is there more information about this anywhere? Maybe buried somewhere here on the forum, in some ancient threads. But the best bet is probably to ask Geoff, after all, he is the one who implemented whatever su...

Re: Splitting up the "ship" tech category

I don't have a good idea how to name the third category, and it's still the most overloaded one, not sure what could be moved to a different group. What about moving drives and fuel with ship defense so that the three categories are Weapons, Parts(or Engineering), Hulls. They are pretty clear, usef...

Re: ~50ish games feedback longfirstpost & guide

There is an option to enable a circle around the currently selected system which is the same radius as the marked ruler at the top left of the screen. It's under UI or something in the Options menu.

Re: Window Transparency Problems

The issue is present in the Sept 22 2015 Mac OSX build, but not Sept 14 2015 or before. Looking at the Github commits, there's a couple rendering changes that could have something to do with it, but I don't know enough to be certain.
