Ships: Supply

This thread is to discuss issues of supply for fleets. Some options (courtesy of Geoff) include: * MOO1-like range limits: can't move a fleet further than some limit from your planets and breaking this rule can result in fleet loss * Fleet fuel limits, where moving fleets consumes their fuel, and yo...

Ships: Ship Design System

Hi, Now that we've had a discussion about ship roles, we're ready to start discussing ship design in-game. Before we get into the details of that, we need to answer a very important question: what system do we use for design? There are three main contenders: * Slots - something like Stars!, where ea...

My non-participation in this thread has been more due to not having thoughts beyond those already expressed, and time. I have been reading the thread though.

Hi, Before we get on to discussing ship design, we'll discuss the size and role of ships in FreeOrion. Ships will have roles both in battles and on the galaxy map. This thread is about whether we should use role-specific hulls. So, * Is a ship's role determined by what predefined role-specific hull ...
