Re: Shouldn't breaking supply routes be possible only at war

Remove peace.

If peace allows the ai to unbeknownst destroy your supply lines...
i.e. war is better then peace as you can drive them off... its then broken and should be removed.

Re: GG generators are no-brainers

You could fix this the opposite way by making it cost less and give much less.
Such that going that route instead of researching something else is the choice.

Re: 1st, 2nd and 3rd Impressions

No he has a good point. I think that point is that there needs to be a way for the game to open up a splash screen message window from a script. That or play sound and video ect... This could be used for custom scripts as well to toss up images for special events or very important ones ect. That's a...

Re: We need a close all window panes button.

Did you know about the ESC key? Another reason it's needed i didn't, new players wont either. Id wager that they would expect to find one right by all the window open buttons. Maybe post a pull request (or issue? still not sure what's the best place for feature requests) on https://github.com/freeo...

We need a close all window panes button.

Ive played this on and off for a long while. One thing i think of every time i pick it up after a bit is... I need a " close all these damn windows " button , so i can see the starmap asap. It's annoying to have to close 2 things, plus maybe click left or was it right on open space ect... To see the...

Re: LOL so many monsters!

I only play single player. Monsters i put them on minimal and there are SO many SO early that are SO strong. I have never actually played a single game with monsters on. It is ridiculous to do so in my eyes, and totally ruins the entire concept of the game for me. It makes the other empires less of ...

Re: Upcoming changes I'd like to see...

Yes id re-balance the entire thing in many many ways. The first problem is research bonus's based on population along one line that gives everything else. Solar hulls are the most ridiculous ship and one of the ugliest in game and its the best a big sun ship shouldn't easily do 140 speed. You should...

Re: Need a harder difficulty

The real problem i think is that the Ai is Not "Simple" to tweek or script any of its behavioral decisions. If everyone or anyone could script it easily which right now its not easy at all to script like the foc's are. You would see lots of different ai's get made, and you could even pit them agains...

Need more ships that look like the basic designs

The coolest looking ships in this game are the basic designed ones but they are also the lowest level and there is only 3 we needs more of those types of ships cause they look really cool. :D http://i936.photobucket.com/albums/ad207/xlightwavex/programing%20and%20concepts/EmpireBasicsSofar001_zps9bh...

Re: gateway to the void

This tech is so abusable and overpowered against the ai or another player that i feel it shouldn't even be in the game as it is. I really feel it should have a limit on the number of ships it can destroy per turn even it that limit is very high. Further i always felt it actually should be what every...

Currently we have Invade, Colonize and Outpost buttons that can appear as actions taken on a planet. Lets say i wanted a Destroy planet button or Nuke planet button Or Bomb Structures or the li...

Re: Wrong boost version in windows sdk?

I found a compile error were a older installed version of free orion didn't uninstall a older boost library. This caused some kind of a conflict with a newer version. Aka it didn't uninstall the previous boost library (because it can and does occasionally not close the process freeorionCA* when run)...
