Re: 0.4.10 release

0.4.10.1 RC1 has been released. Because of its importance I want to reiterate: To all our playtester, please sacrifice some of your FO time to playtesting the release candidate. I know, playing around with test builds of master is probably more fun and interesting, but the bugfix release needs some ...

I've compiled an update to the changelog and put up a PR: #3164 . Please, everyone who contributed to fixes/improvements which got into the bugfix release, r...

Re: Empire Types - "Origins"

Ok, the verbosity is getting out of hand, I'll try (big emphasis on the "try part here ;)) to cut straight to what I think is the core issue here: Well, here is the point. Yes, you should be able to follow through these paths, but not just because you like them, because they are the right paths for ...

Re: Formalizing War and Peace

Som interesting ideas, reminds be of the way war is handled in Paradox grand strategy games (maybe you took your inspiration for this from Stellaris? ;)). The intention behind Paradox war mechanics and, I assume, also your suggestions here is to try to counter the in most cases decisive outcome of w...

Re: 0.4.10 release

What about 0.4.10.1 release? Well, I had to wait for all issues to be addressed, which is almost done - the only thing left is cherry picking #3159 , which I couldn't do because of merge conflicts (see my comment here ). Geoff has made an attempt (commit df73fb4 , but we need you to review that and...

Re: Influence mechanics brainstorming

In principal it's just a name but why not keep it "happiness" :wink: What Oberlus said. "Stability" basically includes "Happiness". We could make a more sophisticated and complex mechanic and try to model the various factors that contribute to stability separately (happiness, police forces, etc.) a...

Re: 0.5 roadmap

Now that I have taken a look at the existing policies themselves, I have to conceded to your point. We probably won't be ready to implement a system of values and ideals for a while and it would take a lot of re-working of the policy system as it stands. For the record: I actually do believe that, ...
