Re: Finally tried 0.4.8...

What are your issues with fleet management? Lots, but just to give a couple examples of its... unwieldiness: I have a fleet of 100 ships on system A (let's assume they're the same type), and to react to a double threat I want to send the 70 less damaged ones to system B and the rest to system C. In...

Cluster galaxy: Weirdly, even though I have been using the same 300 stars and 12 players for nearly all of my games, I feel that there is a lot less pressure before conflict with the AI, and more room to expand. Don't know why.
Lots of chokepoints, that's why.

Re: Finally tried 0.4.8...

Hi, There's a post complaining that the UI requires way too many clicks Could you give an example of something you think takes too many clicks? The UI seems fine to me, but I'm used to it so I may not notice something you have. We might also be able to show a simpler way to do it. Sure. I'll walk t...

Re: Toroidal maps

You could of course explicitely connect fringe systems in universe generation with extremely long single-jumps. Would probably suck though. Unless there's a way to set the distance for those starlanes, it wouldn't help much, except maybe for tiny galaxies. The goal is to generate a fair, even playi...

Toroidal maps

Is there any chance we'll see toroidal (wraparound) galaxy maps in the future?

Re: Finally tried 0.4.8...

If you start as a xenophobic species, the moment you conquer a planet with another species, you get a free Concentration Camp on that world, which you cannot get rid of until the planet is cleansed. Looks like you're throwing the baby with the bathwater here. I'd rather have the xenophobic penalty ...

Re: Finally tried 0.4.8...

Anyone can integrate any species into their empire with equal ease, and they might as well have been part of your empire all along. I think a great way to solve this would be to implement revolts. Say, if a species (other than your starting one and Exobots) accounts for X% of your empire's total po...

Re: Multiplayer community looking for more players

First I should say that our MP group is just 2 regulars + 2 occasionals, so my feedback may be skewed a bit by a lack of diversity. > does stealth as combat tactics work against human players sometimes? Absolutely, it's a race between stealth and detection. We're using a custom stealth patch with en...

Banforo, Kilandow and supply

The species' description files both have an "AVERAGE_SUPPLY" tag but the corresponding [[AVERAGE_SUPPLY]] reference is missing. I guess that's the reason why these species don't get supply bonuses from focus:logistics or space elevators. I also noticed that when you conquer Banforo or Kilandow plane...

Re: Finally tried 0.4.8...

Flak: Though I use them, because so much stuff is unshielded, I'm not sure how great they are, even against fighters. They do not help against them on Turn 1 because no fighters have been deployed. They do not help on Turn 3 because enemy fighters will get to attack anyway. In a sense, then, Flak e...

Re: Finally tried 0.4.8...

Yes, they're way too good. I changed that and made Nanorobitic Maintenance a prereq for SG hulls, and swapped their research cost and time. Now in midgame I have to choose between Nanorobotic and Large Asteroid hulls. At least there's a choice. That is just great. I shall change my installation the...

Re: Robotic shields

Try playing against human players for a change. If you still don't use flak then, either you're a tactical genius or you're dead. Hmmm... That intrigues me. I've never played against other human players. Two words: supply lines. Human players know how to defend theirs and how to cut yours, the AI d...

The way it works now I never even bother using FlAK.
