Re: Common micromanagement problems

Looking for colonizable planets. Planets aren't visible on the map, and their colonizability changes with technology and species, so I have to re-check them periodically. A sortable list of known planets, is one of the features a lot of us would like to see-- one of the many nobody has gotten aroun...

No Matter how much Stuff you may add please spend for Politics such a SubMenu as well.

Re: feedback on [6642]

As for asteroid snails, perhaps I should just take the fuel scavanging off Asteroid Hulls even if it's left on other hulls, so that the snails really would move around quite slowly, or perhaps that behavior could just be gated by the ship's BuiltBy attribute. The description is: Feeding upon minera...

Re: Ship and ship parts balancing and flavor ideas

IMHO the idea of having different parts create special stat bonuses when combined with other parts/hulls/species is theoretically fine. The trick is presenting the information to the player so the bonuses are predictable and understandable. It isn't a super-challenging UI problem -- i've seen such t...

Re: Dynamic resp rotating Galaxies

Look, i'm glad you are interested in our project, and i know learning a second language is hard, but you are communicating very poorly . Many of your sentences are incomprehensible. Often i can guess at a phrase, but it doesn't usually fit together to produce a meaningful whole. You need to work har...

Re: Dynamic resp rotating Galaxies

Gameplay comes first, not realism. And if you want to get down to it, motion and rotation are relative. Since the entire game's context is a single galaxy, it would be senseless to show it's rotation relative to other points in space which have no bearing on the game. Anyway, i've heard a lot of pr...

Re: Freeorion cheats?

If you want an unfair advantage, make the super-tester-takeover building. You may have to un-comment the building and species. They are much more powerful than other species.

Re: WithinDistance 0 is not working

"Distinguishes natural geometric irregularities from enemy ships by manipulating space-time distortions caused by all objects in the vicinity. All objects at the same location have max stealth reduced by 20. The effect is non-stacking." Yep, that's ambigous. Hm... eleazar? Any comment on that? I've...

Re: Bug in v6557 captured gg-generator working without orbge

It seem perfectly reasonable to me that the status quo continues. It takes a significantly smaller amount of understanding to run something than to build a new one. I bet we all can operate cars, but not build new ones. You could imaging that the conquering empire captured some of the GGG's operator...

I don't think that would be that nice. It makes describing and charting tech prereqs more complicated for little gain. Not KISS.

Re: First Impressions

Putting conquered planets in a special status that kept them segregated from your empire until you found a way to integrate them seems like it solves the steamrolling problem and the xenophobic problem. A special status for conquered planets should not be necessary with the approval/happiness syste...

Re: First Impressions

Xenophobic races are awful to capture. I did not expect taking over one small colony to wind up penalizing all my others. I'm not particularly fond of that aspect of the current implementation of xenophobic, but it seems to be liked by some other content scripters. It doesn't make much sense to me ...
