Bugs on Sourceforge

I can't post bugs on Sourceforge, despite the fact that I'm signed in. Where do I post them?

Thanks to the Programmers 0.3

On behalf of all here in the FreeOrion community, I'd like to thank Aq and all the programmers for all their hard work to create and complete this release. They've DONATED their time and energy into creating something for the good of everyone--especially for the overcharged and mall-weary gamers. TH...

Agreed. I'm one of those skillless people--I don't know how to program and I'm well aware that this is done on the good will and charity of people who do. You guys rock, this game will rock, end of discussion.

Religion in CIV 4 is basically cultural influence in Civ 3...I think that's what you're proposing--increasing our empire's culture influence through sports. Good idea! In Civ 3 that means our borders will expand out farther, faster, and it's possible that opposing player's planets will trade to our ...

Magus: That's pretty much what I mean about a classification system; the only difference is you'd optionally be able to call the Frigate Class [or any Class] of ships by a proper name: Frigates could be called Titan Class, for instance, until you upgraded, in which case you change the class name to ...

I didn't think ship design was fun in MOO 2; I've said it before and I'll say it again: I would like a combination of auto-upgrades and manual ship design. If we base new ship techs on research like the Civs and the AOE series does, then it might make it easier. I'd like some stock ships though beca...

Yeah, everything from alien artifacts to derelect alien vessles. We could even have a battle formula for chances a ship goes derelect vs. blows up when it loses a battle. Finding alien artifacts that give you access to new technology is typical in Civ games--only with them it was a form of a hut/min...

Derelects and Crew Distribution

I played a Trek game once where you could take over derelect ships with a part of your crew. What do you guys think?

Oooooh, an artificial ring world. I like it. All the open space of space with all the benefits of a planet. Makes for an easier escape when a star wants to go nova.

Transfering fleets is a great idea, but it doesn't have the same diplomatic effects that a commonwealth/federation/protectorate would :lol: . Think about it: you're a player--watching the map because you're about to crush a smaller empire and you want to enjoy every inch of border gained as you win....

I'd like it if these "Barbarians" had the capacity to become a "major" race in FreeOrion.
