Re: Honeycomb special creates systems with stars but no plan

It didn't in that game, both where present in the same system. Just thinking something to consider in all of this if they do happen to appear in the same system. Maybe we can add a tag for important/unique specials like the honeycomb ("legendary"?) and make sure that the experimentors don't spawn i...

Re: Honeycomb special creates systems with stars but no plan

I did have one game with the honeycomb special in the same system as the experimenters. That could be interesting, asteroid belt the experimenters homeworld?

Re: Honeycomb special creates systems with stars but no plan

Awhileback I had a commit in my working branch which rather than destroying the planets instead made them all asteroid belts. Given that it didn't rename them you ended up with a fairly substantial clue that the Honeycomb was nearby and I think it worked well. But I never finished it off and the sp...

Re: Energy Frigate

I do, and I now understand more, I rarely if ever look at the whole tree and it's always been cluttered to me, this doesn't, to me, increase the level much as it was already too much for my tastes, I know the tree well enough and select by category view virtually always. If you look at the screensh...

Re: Energy Frigate

Sloth, I think my biggest problem with the discussion is I genuinely don't understand what you mean by 'clutter' nor why you think it's a problem, I strongly suspect we're talking at cross purposed and misunderstanding each other which is bad as we all want the best results. Well my approach is sim...

Re: Energy Frigate

And given how messy the tech tree already is I simply don't see your issue with it, it moves things around in a minor way, that gravitonics is a prereq for too many things may be an issue but given the current prereqs for the line this is the most balanced way to add them in, the frigate and the co...

Re: Energy Frigate

I still think that the hull falls short compared to the Robotic Hull and that it unnecessarily adds to the tangledness of the tech tree.

I like the idea and 10 sounds good (or make it 5 and some tech gives a bonus of +5).

Experimentors can still spawn in a system with natives.

Re: New Special: Temporal Anomaly

After a bit of testing, i went with: "Increases Research on this planet by 5 per Population when Focus is set to Research, but population is decreased: Tiny: -5, Small: -10, Medium: -15, Large: -20, Huge: -25.".

But feel free to request further tweaks.

Re: New Special: Temporal Anomaly

Actually my plan was to create a special, where for the first time i can make the AI adjustments myself, after seeing all the adjustments you've made for my specials so far. While your suggestion for a drawback sounds interesting, it would not only need a more complicated AI update, but it would als...

Re: AI builds troop ships

It would be helpful if you could post the version you are using.

Screenshots or savegames would make it easier to find a problem.

Yup, no problems on my machine.
