Re: Fighters! Feedback needed

In the latest version i noticed flak cannons are just as expensive as mass drivers. I feel as if this is a major mistake. They are useless against shields and cannot be upgraded. Please reconsider the PP cost. They should be worth less than half that of mass drivers. If the problem is the eaxaw, the...

Re: Just a general query

Iv also noticed that when playing agianst multiple opponents, they will always seem to launch an attack when only one remains. And occasionally after you destroy another empire.
In earlier versions iv never seen this behavior.
So i dont think you are imagining it.

Suggestion: Command Module

How about a 'command module' internal ship part that coordinates a fleet to become more effective. In large fleet confrontations intelligent enemies may maneuver into positions obscured by friendly ships. This leads to both a problem with friendly fire( a .3% chance per 6 friendly ships with a maxim...

Re: Fighters! Feedback needed

I think it should cost about ⅔ of the Mass Driver to counter that. I think you underestimate how weak 1 damage packets are against shields. I would suggest a figure more like 1/3 to 1/4th the price. Having flak be efficient early game would add a bit more to player's decision to research shields ea...

Re: Fighters! Feedback needed

From my testing, all fighters die near instantly. Makes them very impotent and ineffective. Leaves the carrier left alone as an overcosted (in terms of both research and production) land whale. If they were dirt cheap, i could excuse it as being a budget option... but as is they are VERY overcosted ...

Re: Troop Drops, Troop Ships

It often happens, you invade a planet in a system, where you have troop drops and troop ships, that the troop ship are used first. I think first all drops pods should be used and only if necessary to take the planet the troop ships. Reminds me of outpost drops and outpost ships... except much more ...

Re: Need a harder difficulty

Mass drivers and diamond armor are enough to conquer the entire galaxy. Just curious, but how do you get diamond armor without setting any colony to research focus the entire game? That would just give you the 5 research point provided by the Cultural Archives building, meaning it would take an ete...

Re: Need a harder difficulty

You can't win without production and research. You absolutely can win without having a single planet ever focus on research. Mass drivers and diamond armor are enough to conquer the entire galaxy. Simply getting population and industry levels up will give you all you need to out produce every other...

Environmental Containment Field

Through the use of a low power shield, a large area can be protected from hostile environments. Building an 'environmental containment field' at any outpost sets the maximum population to 1 (unless it is already higher) allowing any race to inhabit the planet. Terraformering operations often begin o...

Need a harder difficulty

In the last 4 games with 12 maniacal opponents each i was only attacked twice. The AI doesnt seem to aggressively expand (or even place too many outposts in multi planet systems). Granted, i conquered most of the galaxy by turn 200 and won between turns 250-300 (which seems quick to me), but shouldn...

Re: Solar Hull cant be produced except in black hole systems

From the Solar Hull pedia entry: "This ship requires a tremendous amount of energy to construct and must harness energy from particle-antiparticle collisions on the event horizon of a Black Hole in its formation." Well thats embarrassing. Apparently my reading comprehension isnt what i thought it w...

Ignore this

Nowhere in the description of either the hull or the tech does it mention it can only be produced in blackhole systems. Energy compressor and solar containment dont mention blackhole only either.
Is it an oversight of the description or a bug?

Re: New Troops System

Is population a resource? If no, then the entire idea of limited troops is axiomatically wrong. If yes, then shouldnt population and troops have some relation to one another? Producing troops doesnt currently reduce population or retard population growth, correct? Should it? Im of the opinion that t...

Re: An extensive combat analysis of ship hulls

You can only build ONE more ship, not TWO more as you stated. Whoops, you're right, I can build only one more ship, I was right tht damage*structure will be four times greater though. Regarding small asteroids as you can see they have a lot lower efficiency so I decided to not include them. As for ...
