Re: Help with colonisation, invasion bug replication

The curious thing was that the order didn't get discarded, it became unavailable if repeated in the next turn, and then the error started stacking itself somehow. I think I was able to trigger this as I am playing on relatively low end hardware. Greying out the ability to trigger the order at this t...

Help with colonisation, invasion bug replication

Hi, RE: FreeOrionCH v0.4.8 (Linux) [build 2018-06-14.3f22a75] CMake I am trying to nail down a bug report for 0.4.8. Sometimes when I hit the invasion or establish outpost etc button between turns, ie after the end turn button has been pressed, but before the next turn has begun, I get the following...

Re: Feature suggestion - Nova bomb creates Nebula

I last checked this behaviour in 0.4.7, will do a check in the latest release, then if the bug is still there post off to to Github in the next couple of days, along with a suggestion that a nova bomb can only be allowed in a starless system if included in a solar hull. I think any stuff about nebul...

Re: Ubuntu PPA

Oh wow, I wish I read this before I compiled from source the other day, this is a low end PC and it took almost 2 hours!

Thanks for the PPA, especially with 16.04 and x86 support.

Re: Feature suggestion - Nova bomb creates Nebula

I gave this a fair amount of thought, and....

Currently you can set off a nova bomb in a starless system which due to fluff is wrong, so...

How about

All nova bombs make nebulas
but
a nova bomb can only be set off in a starless system if encased in a solar hull!

Boom!

Re: Feature suggestion - Nova bomb creates Nebula

What I see game-wise that I don't like is that it removes for late game the presence of hard-to-defend systems (those without systems), probably a minor issue, and also I don't like that I would be compelled to fill every empty system and do more Settlers of Catan and less Risk. This. I don't think...

Re: Feature suggestion - Nova bomb creates Nebula

It would create a new usage for the nova bomb, you could release it in an empty system to eventually create a new star and planets to colonise Only for systems with at least a star, so that empty systems remain empty, right? Why not all systems? It would be easier than using starlane drives to popu...

Re: Feature suggestion - Nova bomb creates Nebula

Sorry, this should have been posted elsewhere, such as in other game design.

Feature suggestion - Nova bomb creates Nebula

I think if the Nova Bomb resulted in a Nebula - this would be a good addition to the game for the following reasons: - It would be easy to implement - It would slightly lessen the impact of the nova bomb if it were used multiple times in the same game, allowing some regeneration of the galaxy - It w...
