With each passing turn the "on the table" deal is modified based on "combat rolls" between your diplomates, modified by Strategy and Racial Bonuses. Only once Both players choose to "accept" the deal dose it get conducted. By being a tough negotiator you can get sweeter deals, but you risk offendin...

In italian there is a particular form of language to use when you speak with someone older / higher in "power" (teacher-student, boss-employee) .. Transalting literally: original: "Boss, would you like to come with me to have a cup of coffee?" Translated: "Boss, HE would like to come with me to hav...

I'm not particularly fond of the Inner-Outer Hull method used in Space Empires (I'm glad they droped in in IV). It cant account for the scale or shape the ship very well (a small fighter should realy be all external and a Death Star 90% internal) and seems rather artificialy contraining to me. I ha...

This might be hard to envision without a system to try out, I acknowledge. Imho the better way to tranlsate in other languages will be of giving strings to people to "tranlsate" and then put them back again... anyway: "We offer to trade 24 units of Energium Crystals and 1 galactic credit per year f...

Thanks for the suggestion. I did indeed listen to the track samples of that band's CD on amazon.com (which was all I could find quickly). All I can say at the moment is anything with vocals (ie real humans singing) is going to sound different from stuff we produce here, and for the most part I thin...

I really like Getix's ideas, and I have some additions. Well, I hope also other people likes it.. :D Some components should be naturally "inner hull" techs that have some "outer hull" modifications, and vice versa. For example, power cores should be naturally internal (key system), but certain type...

Here's an idea that's not really a "response option" but could be a feature: If your fleet gets to a star system first and then sits there (for whatever reason) and a non-ally fleet comes calling, their sensors should be scrambled the turn they enter, giving them no way to scan the system. They cou...

If I understood well, you mean: Human Fleet 1 meets XYZZY Fleet at a certain sector.. You have many choices: 1) Attack now 2) Arm weapons & raise shields (ready to fire, if enemy fires you can retailate) 3) Flee 4) Stand Still and wait for enemy movement (if enemy fires, you take full to charge weap...

Re: Romance Languages

The "european languages" shouldn't be to problematic. You would be suprised. German (and related languages) should in fact be one the easier languages to do, because the sentence structure of German is very similar to English (it's not called anglo-SAXON for nothing). Romance languages on the other...

I have to disagree a bit. German sentences are quite long, but Hungarian sntences are usually longer. :D I am a native Hungarian, so I can do the translation. If the Hungarian text will fit, I think the rest of the European languages will fit (included German). Just a few example: csillag rendszer ...

Another even more logical suggestion is you dropped an "h" and an "n":

geht nix (doesn't go / doesn't work).
