Re: [Balance] Specials and Guards

I've never had an experience where one very powerful ship made all that much difference in the game. It would be different if you could get that Kracken to spawn more Krackens, or if you could add the parts to ships you build. Just one extra big ship for the cost of two items researched (which i do...

Re: Changing low planet density even lower

I would love to be able to create an sparsely populated endless void type scenario, where while a ~2500 system seems ludicrous and everyone's already thinking of how with 8 AIs the turn time will be late game (whose up for 5 minute waits? anyone?) -- but imagine that was mostly dead space, and in t...

Re: Fifth game of the multiplayer slow game server

I'd like to say a big thank you to team AllerswaqCST for such spirited play - but I hope you will agree that MVP must go to TheSilentOne for holding off two of you single-handedly while I countered swaq and o01eg did nothing ;-) Ah, thanks but I don't think so. I felt a bit like a cheater with the ...

Re: Fifth game of the multiplayer slow game server

Death rays? I wish I had those... Rigel gave me a bloody nose and I will now retreat, lick my wounds (yuck) and complain how mean comsats are.
I'll... I'll be back :D

Re: collecting ideas for new fields

Why not? You can check what the next target system is and I think also how far the distance is; then you boost speed for a slingshot with it. Also you can check if you are in that system or if that was your last system and maybe even how far the distance is you covered. Of course if your ship is fa...

This isn't working, is there a way to round in FOCS?
Solution was that I needed to put "Target." before MaxStructure:

Code: Select all

SetStructure value = Value - (Target.MaxStructure * 0.1)

Re: collecting ideas for new fields

Gravity Well Found around Neutron Stars or Black Holes. Increases speed by 4x for approaching ships, decreases speed by 1/4x for leaving ships. I think that's currently not possible with FOCS. stackinggroup = "METEOR_BLIZZARD_SHIP_EFFECTS" effects = [ SetStructure value = Value - Round(MaxStructure...

I assume I'm not needed anymore as delegate of TSO.
So you guys, do me a favour and kill each other ASAP, I want to join next game :twisted:
Thanks for offering to step in. Game may take a while though, I'm just loving the com-sats! :roll:

@O01eg, Magnate: does one of you want to take over until I can connect again?
There's also Oberlus. Although they delegated for me, i'm reasonably certain they have no agenda and would do what you need them to.

Re: Fifth game of the multiplayer slow game server

Could you try to traceroute or tracert host? I have a strange loop at fra1-lmb1-vac1-a75-firewall.de.eu [178.33.99.161] and fra1-lmb1-vac1-a75-shield.de.eu [178.33.99.162]. I suppose same as you.

I was just able to connect/enter orders, so whatever you did seems to have fixed it.
Still can't connect.
