Re: stealth carrier

Then, one possible easy improvement to stealth-carrier exploits (at least a short term one until something better is put in place), very similar to the part noisiness that Geoff has proposed, could be to have the fighter bays or launch bays impose a notable stealth malus on their ship for a couple ...

stealth carrier

Hi There

i feel like a carrier with high stealth and no short range weapons is overpowered b/c it is not detected during combats but the interceptors/fighters/bombers do attack. Since the carrier was not attacked/in a fight, the destroyed fighters are repaired for the next combat.

Re: Supply Reworking

Compiled to test now, definitely in favour of the basic idea but obviously tweaks might be needed. I like that idea too. :) Hopefully if this works properly we can then rework and balance ship fuel and parts as upt to now they're basically pointless whereas if supply is disputed they might become v...

Re: Beginner Game Hints

As it is not interactive, would a randomized sitrep message work for this? Then a simple right click could hide them in bulk(if they can share the label). This could look like this in custom_sitreps.txt //##### R A N D O M H I N T S #####// EffectsGroup scope = Source activation = Turn low = 0 high...

commit 46a1581... breaks weapon system

just did a git pull and since commit 46a1581 the weapons no longer work. Game starts and conquering the universe by colonization works fine, but weapons don't have any effect. No Problems with commit 5514964... What a peaceful universe ;)

Re: Ship Hulls

Sorry for getting back to this only now, but as that is a more substantial change I wanted to have a bit more time to look at it, but got distracted by other things... well, here we are. ;) No problem on that :) a) What's up with those file permission changes?

EffectGroup activation if fleet moved?

Hi All How do I activate effects if a fleet moved between two systems? The jumpdistance between the two systems is one. activation = Not Stationary seems not to work for me since the UU-distance between the two systems is lower then the speed of the ship. I assume the same holds true for activation ...

Re: Suggestion: Split script files into directories

My suggestion here is to allow script entries to load from multiple files, organized by directory. By splitting these entries, it may allow for faster and less error-prone changes. I do agree that splitting into multiple file would provide a better structure, but what is wrong with the '#include' s...

Re: Ship Hulls

Made new graphics for the Spatial Flux Hull. I intended the external slot positions to be that retractable nose-cone and the square cargo/weapons-bay door with the orange line around it. Looks nice - I like the idea of a ship which is 75% engine and 25% everything else :D I could write the placemen...

Re: Ship Hulls

Will require a lot of re-rendering of those hull pics (at least where we have the 3D model source files) and redoing of the placements of the slots, but if someone is willing to do it, why not. This was much more then expected, especially the placements of the slots. Created https://github.com/free...

Re: Ship Hulls

However, doing things that way is a really huge waste of screen space. Using such a huge portion of the design screen just for a big image of the hull doesn't strike me as very practical. People with smaller screens in particular won't be happy with that. Maybe have it as an option in the settings?...
