Re: Terraforming costs v fractional production—new system ne

Been keeping tabs on the discussion, just not much opportunity to form replies. I tried some approaches to Geoffs stability/instability meter and think influencing a planet to terraform has a lot of potential (e.g. hostile ships, fields, species traits). This approach would definitely take a post 0....

Re: Terraforming costs v fractional production—new system ne

Thanks for feedback, I was thinking remote/outpost terraforming would be a separate PR/issue and admittedly had not given much thought on how to implement it. If not added, I'll have at least a general plan for implementation of these while redesigning the existing terraform. From other thread (and ...

Re: script conciseness vs execution efficiency

I wonder if it should be made to do what it appears to, and not have the implicit contain feature for those types of conditions Yes, adding a size/type/etc argument to Planet should only constrain the potential match. @Dilvish I would have opened a bug report (since it is not an immediate priority)...

Re: Implementing stockpile "project" build item

From what I've followed so far, there are two different options proposed for this new item type. One option is to have the item define a goal amount to send to stockpile, where the new progress each turn is transferred and the item removed once the goal is reached. e.g. "Stockpile 50 PP" (Though thi...

Re: Species: Frankov

The macros AVERAGE_WEAPONS and VERY_BAD_STEALTH do not exist. You can drop AVERAGE_WEAPONS, and either change to BAD_STEALTH or modify scripting/species/common/stealth.macros and add VERY_BAD_STEALTH. Once it is selectable on the startup screen, as Oberius notes you will need a colony building as we...

Re: planets troops increasing even with attacking ships in o

Given a system with only a single planet with Ancient Guardians, still seeing +1 troop gain where ships have attacked for 5+ turns. Oddly enough, changing the "increase 1 per turn" effectgroup in /scripting/species/common/troops.macros to equal current turn increases the troop gain to +2. (LastTurnA...

Re: Terraforming costs v fractional production—new system ne

Posted an initial PR of a single use building for discussion. Current implementation utilizes special capacity over a new (in)stability meter. Not that I do not favor the meter, this just seemed a quicker addition with some existing UI support (and prevents adding more parser conflicts with other P...

Re: What I'm doing wrong setting up multiplayer game?

From server log, looks like 7 Ais were added (although AI_7 is just the player name). Don't think you hit this particular issue, but if changing branches where the python files change, might try removing *.pyc files before starting the game. e.g. on linux from freeorion directory: $ find . -name *.p...

Re: Balance industry-focused bonus techs and buildings

Should population and infrastructure be considered to limit some of these bonuses? e.g. GGG: max(10, industry_per_pop * min(population, infrastructure)) The would affect less hospitable planets, planets with shipyards, and possibly desire some adjustments of xenophobic effects. Increases target Indu...

Re: Differentiating metabolisms (or species?) with new trait

We would need either a bunch of new species to utilize such traits (not all need extra traits) or some kind of random species name and trait selection during setup/universe generation (sub-species?). I would hope most traits would aim to balance themselves out as well, with sparse use of traits that...
