Re: Error when loading save file

If you show details while looking at the saves folder, is there anything unusual about the file, such as its size being substantially different from saves the turn before or after, more so than usual turn-to-turn variations? As a matter of fact, it's several orders of magnitude larger than the ones...

Error when loading save file

FreeOrion_v0.4.5_2015-09-01.f203162_Test_Win32 Windows 10 Home, version 1607, OS build 14393.222 I am definitely warming to this game! Once I learned the way the shared resources work for production and research, I have begun seeing how to best manage it. However, I have encountered a real bummer of...

Re: One planet will not produce

I guess this is tangential to my other post about production queue scheduling. Since production is a civilization-wide effort, being cut off from all the other planets would explain it.

Thanks!

Re: Production Queue ordering

OK, Design decision, I guess that makes sense.

(I am a long-time player of "Stars!", which did have production at the star level. I'm still adjusting.)

How can I contribute as a programmer?

IBM Midrange is my primary skill set, but I have written professionally in C#, and I know java, and swing.

Can I get involved? (Surely there is some area where I can contribute)

One planet will not produce

Running FreeOrion_v0.4.5_2015-09-01.f203162 on W10. I have one planet that has a ship yard, a dry dock, and has built ships in the recent past. It is not being bombarded. Suddenly, everything I add to the production queue says 'Never' in the bottom right of the tile, whether the tile is in the top o...

Re: My personal strategy guide

As many have already said: Great post!

As a long-time "Stars!" fan, I find old habits hard to break, and learning the new game system has been a combination of un-learning old things as well as learning new things.

Production Queue ordering

I am running W10, and was running 4.5 before installing FreeOrion_v0.4.6_2016-09-16.49f9123_Win32_Setup. These remarks are for 4.5. (4.6 is unusable - see my other post.) When scheduling new production items, when I schedule a new building or ship at planet A, it should proceed independently of what...

4.6 issues on Windows 10

First, GREAT EFFORT! Thanks for doing this game. I am running W10, and had been running Free Orion 4.5 for about a week. I downloaded and installed 4.6 (FreeOrion_v0.4.6_2016-09-16.49f9123_Win32_Setup). Now, when I start the game, the mouse pointer goes away. Sometimes in certain dialogues, it shows...
