Re: Questions from a 1 month old player

You might see a colony ship (I still think AIs build too many of those) at a system with only asteroid belts, but that's probably because the AI either doesn't have a place to use it or the path to the target is blocked so it's waiting there. As noted, you can't even try to colonize a belt with anyt...

4.8 release, no flicker

I didn't expect a problem because later 4.7 releases were okay, but the official 4.8 does not have the flicker problem. So, yay.

Re: Questions from a new player

Every upgrade to the orbital drydock, energy compressor, orbital incubator or asteroid processor is subject to this actually, but at the moment it's only "exploitable" with the advanced engineering bay for the trans-spatial drive, since the part only require a bay to build. Interesting. The only th...

Re: Questions from a new player

On a related note, there are quirks with some of the shipyard upgrades that should probably be cleaned up. For instance, at the moment you can build orbital drydocks and advanced engineering bays (which supposedly are a drydock upgrade ) concurrently, but nothing prevents you to pause production on...

Re: Questions from a new player

I still would like it if production could work like research and add any required buildings. If you want a drydock at a system, just add it and the shipyard would get placed in the queue at the same time. The drydock would start when the shipyard was finished.

I don't think the cannon ever did. I think it was always a flat +100 or whatever to damage.

Experimentor stealth what-if

This is a little "out there". I have had experience in the past where an Ion Storm moved over the Experimentor world. That has a natural stealth of 165, IS adds 40 for a total of 205, so the 200 of Omni-scanner can't see it. You have to wait for the storm to clear. Now, suppose there is a Space Volc...

Re: Do you ever use Nanorobotic Hull as a best choice?

I tried many hulls early on, then discarded most for my standard sequence: Robotic->Flux->Self-Grav->Titanic. I used to go for Solar sometimes late in long games because in the old days you could pack them full of engines and get these hard-hitting speedsters. The changes to eliminate engine-stackin...

Occasional method for Experimentor system

This mainly for newer players, as I'm sure experienced players have worked this out. Sometimes when you find that the unconnected system that lets you know the Experimentors in are in the vicinity, you will be an alternate way to handle them. This works when there are one or more additional planets ...

Re: research problems with 0.4.8 (build 2018-06-14.3f22a75)

Irrelevant to the question, but Curtis's posts don't have the quote tags working for (at least for me). Does he have "Enable BBCode by default:" set to NO in preferences?

Re: Stargates cant be use

Something to remember. As you have to change the focus of the planet to use the gate, choose the planet that will have the least impact when you change the focus. That's especially true when the star gate will be used often. Production or research will start dropping to minimum levels, and you lose ...

Ah ok ich hab das mit dem Fokus ändern nicht ausprobiert gehabt. Alles klar, da ist tatsächlich eine Einstellmöglichkeit. Es geht sogar. Leider bisschen umständlich. Außerdem glaube ich kann man nicht auswählen, welche Schiffe bewegt werden sollen und welche nicht. Es werden einfach alle Schiffe un...

Remember that you need to activate both ends. The icons look a bit alike, so make sure that the appropriate ones are set to send and receive.

Re: prever a translation for german language

As a side note, I find that the online translators work a lot better these days. I ran your other question , "Alle Gegner besiegt, doch kein Sieg?" and the reply through Google translate, and it came out very well. Als Nebenbemerkung finde ich, dass die Online-Übersetzer heutzutage viel besser arbei...
