Re: Screen Cleanup Menus Idea

So I know UI isn't the current focus, but wrangling the mass of windows (many of which open themselves up again frequently) is quite annoying and gets in the way of the pretty game. I spent some time this evening whipping some screenshots into a mockup of what I'd eventually like to help make happe...

Re: Hey look, it's spamday!

99% of spambots don't care if you follow the link directly, they're trying to trick search engines into giving them higher rankings—I used to do some white hat SEO/SEM stuff and the spammers and idiots and tricksters gave the whole process a bad name (plus, I wasn't very good and nearly went bust, ...

Re: Hey look, it's spamday!

what i find most disheartening is that there are enough people that follow the links that get spammed on forums for it to be worth the scoundrel's time to make spambots, and for people to pay for their use.

Re: A collection of heads

b) Interrogate him and get a small empire wide bonus based on 10% of one of the emperor's natural bonuses. For example, a Trith emperor might give a +5 detection range bonus, based off of Trith's natural Great Detection Range: +50 bonus. You then mount his head on your trophy wall, which would like...

Re: Problem with troop numbers.

Also, species bonuses and penalties to troops only affect planets, not troop ships. I think troop ships should have the same bonus or penalty, just like good or bad pilots change the total damage good or bad troops could change the total troop number of the troop ship. I'd like to have to build tro...

Re: radial distance indicator

I understand this is the easiest way to get some sort of radial measurement, but it seem to address the problem very directly. Theres a good chance that the distance the player is interested in is not going the one displayed.

Re: proposed adjustment to visibility circle permiters

But the rim-- as the most opaque part-- will be the part the player normally leans on to identify the empire of the detection circle if there is doubt. It's not the part that should be subject to hue-shifts. OK. What I have considered doing was scaling it in a similar fashion, except limiting the s...

Re: proposed adjustment to visibility circle permiters

In this particular case with the visibility regions, it seems to me it's ok if the narrow band of perimeter color is sometimes a bit different than the rest of the fill color, not just brighter, since the point is to add some contrast. But the rim-- as the most opaque part-- will be the part the pl...

Re: proposed adjustment to visibility circle permiters

What's GG::LightColor do? I was expecting it to do something a bit more complicated, but it turns out that it simply doubles the rgb values (but leaves alpha alone); GG::DarkColor similarly halves them. If i understand what you are describing, It's not a good idea to use GG::LightColor with colors ...

Re: Adding Interest to Combat

My proposal above isn't really supposed to be a RPS system, though i suppose it has some element of that.

It is more of an attempt to be interesting by allowing the player some involvement, and control -- i.e. making significant decisions.

It's not the perfect solution, but it is certainly an improvement, so as far as i'm concerned, commit away.
