Re: Improving the AI - research order?

(and let's face it it's the homeworld that makes the most difference normally) Nah, thats about half of the bonus. The other half comes from the fact that you can colonize much more planets (in your systems) with another species and cherrypick pilot or troop traits. Great! The next step is to join ...

Re: Improving the AI - research order?

I played some games and tried to write down my tech order. I noticed it changes with my situation in the game just as much as with the species. So it seems to make little sense to write down a fixed order. In most games I dont even research the mass drivers, exept when meeting an early enemy with a ...

Re: Improving the AI - research order?

So, I understand correctly, that in the current test version the tech lists for the AI are already dynamic? What determines the index={0..4} in TechListsAI.py? My criticism for that lists would be that there are to many useless techs on the list. I usually do not research any ship hulls besides the ...

Improving the AI - research order?

Hi, I'm still a little bit sad that the AI is not very smart. I see three reasons for that: - tech research order - descision making around ship movement and invasion (War ships leaving the turn that the troop ships arrive and vice versa) - descision making around colonisation and colony focus setti...

Re: Xenophobia

Oh, ok. The supply-meter is VERY hidden, since the supply symbol is not there if the menu is not expanded. Infrastructure doesnt do anything at the moment, right?? Whats the design intention behind seperating infrastructure from suppply? Is it intentional that outposts have a base supply range of 0?...

Xenophobia

In the latest test version I played a game with Eaxaw and noticed that the mali for the xenophobic frenzy changed from population malus to a HUGE production malus respective a small research malus. At that point it was to late to build concentration camps, so the easiest solution was to set all the ...

Re: Feedback needed: Production Priorities

Did a game with egassem. Captured two enemy homeworlds with the starting design frigates (pack of 5 for each homeworld). They didn't stand a chance. The homeworlds were to far away, but I had so much production that the outpost were not a problem either. (150 Stars, 6 AIs) So, jes at the current itt...

Re: Bug? Xenophobic frenzy

ok, cool. The last piece I need to undestand the whole pop-complex: What exactly do the racial braod tolerance and narrow tolerance do? narrow: home is good, one step in the circle is poor, rest is hostile? normal: home is good, one step in the circle means one step worse (good, adequate, poor, host...

Re: Bug? Xenophobic frenzy

regarding possible population: While playing with lafena I could colozinze even hostile planets with only planetary ecology and subterrinian habitation (see screenshot). Ok, it as a blue star, but that seems exessive. Intentional? How exactly is the formula for the pop including specials, racials, a...

Re: Bug? Xenophobic frenzy

Sorry, dont know anything about github. Would probably produce more work by doing wrong/asking more questions than if somebody else did it. While we're at it: It would be cool, if the planet affected by xenphobic frenzy and harassment would state the name of the other planet that is causing it. So t...

Bug? Xenophobic frenzy

Hi, i just did a game with trith (latest test version) and noticed that the xennophobic fenzy can account for POSITIVE effects on the max population (see srceenshot). The source for that was an eaxaw-colony 4 lanes away. But when conquering said xenophobic worm, they did NOT suffer the frenzy despit...

Re: New Troops System

do I undesternd correctly, that the ground troops are REMOVED from the planet in the process of building the ship?? that is not uncool of a concept .. (of course that kind of change needs documentation to be undestood and liked .. ) side note: If this change persists, the splitting of "good/bad goun...

Re: I need a challenge!

The setting is to disable adding saved designs read in from text files that are created by right-clicking a design and selecting the save command and specifying a file name. The check box functions as it claims in my test just now. Most designs in the Finished tab at the start of a game are not fro...
