Re: How to vary empire name and text colour?

I tested this elsewhere, on a machine where I compiled this in a subdirectory of my home directory -- and it appears to work. I compiled to /opt as root in order to be able to just call the program from anywhere -- but this appears to have broken this color functionality. Does that make sense? I'm a...

Re: How to vary empire name and text colour?

I am having color issues. I downloaded this file and put it in place -- and the system ignores it totally. I have deleted EVERY color from this file -- and I STILL get a red or brown too dark to read! Any suggestions?

Re: AI Player colors

I have edited that file until I am blue in the face -- to no effect! I still get the same colors, including one that is positively unreadable, even for my wife! Is there anywhere ELSE this is controlled? I emptied the XML file and STILL get those same colors!

Re: AI Player colors

I just posted an issue for this . The red is too dark and dull -- I find it unreadable. I'm colorblind, and although I see color, if there is not enough contrast, it can be difficult. I would like to see this in the options somewhere. In the meantime, at least I know where to change things...

Re: My personal strategy guide

Never mind -- I figured it out. I was trying to use asteroid tech without a reformation processor.

Re: My personal strategy guide

Maybe I need to put this somewhere else... I'm at turn 90 -- and I can't build combat craft! I can design them, but they don't show up on the build list of any of my colonies. I haven't been attacked -- yet -- but a neighbor is going to run all over me soon... Any guesses why this is? I have capacit...

Re: My personal strategy guide

Thanks! Much needed info -- very informative! Question: Do you have to put a robotic outpost on a gas giant to get the industry out of it, or will a regular one do?

Re: My personal strategy guide

There seem to be a lot of knowledge holes out there. Taming monsters? How do you DO that? Is there any benefit to scrapping a ship? I've seen the discussion -- but not the resolution. Love the game -- I played MOO 1 through 3 and loved them -- and this is a great extension. I note that you don't see...

I did that. The latest build is working well for me.

Re: Savegame in progress error messages

I'm getting this going into turn 5 no matter what I do. I'm on Build 4.7.1 on openSuSe LEAP 15. The system times out for a while, then reports "The connection to the server has been lost" I'm in single-player mode -- why would it be going to a server? Trying to reload an autosaved turn 4 leads strai...
