I'd actually suggest you not make a poll like this, because when we do come to this subject (which will be soon-ish), we'll have to phrase very clearly what voting no means versus voting yes. Not just 'do we have something like buildings.' But it's not harmful and it'll get the buildings discussion ...

Hiya-- Trust me, the last thing I want to do is stifle good ideas. I'm not saying that we ignore this board (I used to read every post and now I read most of them) or that we never hunt through it for ideas when we do go into the final phase for something. But put yourself in my place. We have to de...

Agreed -- I'm definitely a drektopian as far as making use of stuff like that. Anything to introduce some variety into your colonies.

I have some server space that I'm willing to lend, but Sourceforge is best. My bandwidth is somewhat limited and my upload speed sucks. However, if and when you guys need any voice acting done, that's actually what I'm qualified to do (as opposed to, I don't know, project administration). typically ...

Okay, but think about what you're asking. IRC channels with ten people on all the time have ten people there for a reason. Occasionally, one of us will hang out in the IRC channel, but only occasionally. If there's interest and people want to know stuff, they should come here (and if they know about...

It's already been observed that real work on the tech tree won't start until we begin work on designing v0.3 (which will be when the programming team is beginning work on coding v0.2). But since I just sorta-kinda chewed you out in another forum (sorry!), I'll throw you a bone here. :) First, give u...

I appreciate your enthusiasm, but how do you expect us to staff an IRC channel 24/7? We periodically schedule IRC chats. When we do so, we try to give at least a week's notice. We'll probably give one after the v0.2 design doc is finished (since us designers won't have much else to do). To be quite ...

Maybe my approach to this project is over-simple, but my game design bible has two rules, and the first one is Keep it Simple, stupid. I see no compelling reason to include second stars as anything except eye candy, and I'm not going to assign official resources to doing that. It falls squarely into...

Just to squash a misconception: We will not have a big database for viewing. We will probably not be talking about spying for at least another year, and when we do open that up (as with all things) it will be a fresh discussion on the game design board. If you remember what you wrote a year ago and ...

The short answer is no.

The long answer is also no.

just my two cents. 8)

FYI

We did not have access to back anything up on the old site, or else we would have. We have it here, which is why we're keeping this system even if we get the old ones back (after transferring stuff).
