Re: Policy regarding license statements

I am not a lawyer, but I suggest if we are changing the legal requirements for contributing to the project that we pay a lawyer. Legal English is as different from common English and technically precise as programming languages are. That being said, I agree with Geoff, agreement with the GPL is impl...

In the DesignWnd Available SavedDesigns don't display

There is the following bug in this week's test builds. In the DesignWnd, the SavedDesigns will not display with the available filter on. I have pushed PR #2010 fixing this bug. It was my recent work on the DesignWnd that broke this and I noticed too late to fix it before Vezra made this week's test ...

Re: AI Surrender issues

I was going to suggest scrapping the ships a simpler alternative, however PR #2001 looks solid.

Re: Diplomatic Victory

An issue with shared production and shared research is summarized by the question, "Which empire gets to spend the points?" I suggest allied empires receive a bonus of 5% or 10% of their combined research/production points before diplomatic bonuses are applied. This grants more of an incentive to sm...

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

This sounds like Issue #1816, where auto turn advance triggers the auto saves at the wrong time.

A workaround, as Geoff suggested, is to start as the Moderator and advance the turns manually.

Re: How to Enable Experimentor Always?

The Experimentors are placed after the empire homeworlds are placed and have a requirement that they be 6 hops from any homeworld. In order to make it more likely that you have Experimentors in a game, you will need a large galaxy with a lower number of empires.

Re: Auto better troop pods

Extending the (obsolete, available, unavailable) categories to cover hulls and parts, was the next step I had planned after extending the saved designs and allowing obsoleting of designs. I have started work on this addition. Dilvish, the plan that you are suggesting sounds automatic and mandatory ....

Re: Auto better troop pods

With distinct troop parts, there is the possibility to decouple the research and construction costs. For example, if the research costs for advance troops are low, but the construction costs are high, then that favors production oriented empires. If the cost of the advanced troop pods is significant...

Re: Fleet overlay

I've pushed a pull request, PR that closely implements Dilvish's suggestion. Fleets at or departing from systems should be unchanged and are grouped by system and empire. When a moving fleet button is selected the fleets from all touching fleet buttons on the same starlane are included in the fleet ...

Re: Feedback Imperial Stockpile (round 3) - Limited Input

I still agree with Vezzra, the stockpile mechanic works as a way to bypass the supply mechanic. I playtested the supply mechanic with the master branch from last week by playing 10ish games as Sly with from 100 to 350 systems with dense planets in a variety of topologies with from 10 to 30 systems p...
