Re: Getting ready for 0.4.6

Also, wrong thread ;-) The discussion link for issue 996 led here. https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/issues/996 I suppose the better option would have been to start a new thread, and link to the discussion here. (I can see why Vezzra wants to prevent the 0.4.7 thread from spiraling out of cont...

Re: Getting ready for 0.4.6

Maybe the weapon rewording can get done for 0.4.7. I've attached a modified Resources/default/stringtables/en.txt file. I figured I should get feedback if the wording is satisfactory, before putting in the effort to use Google translate to modify the other 11 language files (ugh). (Then I can see if...

Re: 0.4.7 preparations

This PR may fix the issue but it is hard to test. This is getting real interesting. Or real ugly, if it has to be tracked down. I still think the AI is playing better now, compared to a week ago, so hopefully this won't slow down the 0.4.7 plans. Same seed game. Similar compiled game as earlier ("m...

Re: 0.4.7 preparations

Thanks for the report. Again, a log would be helpful to identify the issue. Attached a log. This is the same seed game I've been using the past 2 weeks: cluster, 180 stars, seed: Vuu18W41, Gysache species If you use the Supertesters, the Chato is the first AI to be encountered, due "East" (homeworl...

AI invasion problems

EDIT by Vezzra: split thread from here . it will help if we can get some more experienced players helping playtest Morlic's Fighters vs Planets PR and giving feedback on it. I made a note on the Morlic's PR, based on 1 game. (Looks okay to me.) I did notice one thing (spying with the Super-Tester a...

Yah, made a build today from master, and the Dragon Tooth has active Death Rays again. Thanks.

Re: XCode and local GitHub branches

Maybe this will help someone else who is (also) inexperienced with XCode/GitHub/FO. (And in case I forget this in the future.) Open XCode with the FO Mac OSX SDK. (I assume that the origin/master code has already been downloaded.) Source Control -> (whatever your Working Copy is named, has a right t...

Re: XCode and local GitHub branches

I have a github account (memem359). Was logged in the whole time.

I've attached a PDF of what I see on the PR page.
(Maybe the ib report staring me in the face, and hiding in my blind spot?)

In any case, I've found a solution for my situation, and I'll post that next (so I don't forget).

XCode and local GitHub branches

Right now I have the Mac OSX SDK, and it has the latest code from the master branch (freeorion:master). (Very new to the GitHub environment, and working with remote code repositories.) Suppose I wanted to test a PR, for example the code in the branch "Morlic-fo:CarrierVsPlanets". How do I go about g...

Dragon Tooth-less

I got a Dragon Tooth from some Ancient Ruins. Noticed it had 0 attack. Three Death Rays, all with 0 attack. I'm assuming this was a technology requirement. (Don't even have plasma cannons yet.) Seems odd. By the time I have researched Death Rays, I won't need the Dragon Tooth anymore. Are the weapon...

Re: Does the AI properly consider outpost colonization?

That particular issue should now be fixed . It worked for my situation. Starting from the same seed (but with your 1 line code change), the Chato AI spread out a lot more, including colonizing the two Toxic planets next to its homeworld system. (It ended up ignoring the nearby Mu Ursh planet, but d...

Does the AI properly consider outpost colonization?

I've attached an image of a nearby AI that made some peculiar choices. It put outposts on potentially "Good" planets, but then didn't bother to colonize them. That seems odd, considering that they were 1 jump away, and it is now turn 100. (I didn't start attacking until turn 80 or so. There was a ne...

Re: Late game (after turn 200) server disconnects

Just tested it, and it fixes the crash. @mem359: Geoff already merged the fix, so if you build FO yourself, just build the most recent master. Otherwise wait for the next weekly test builds. Please report back if the fix solved the problem for you too. After compiling the BFOY, I have not been able...

Re: Late game (after turn 200) server disconnects

@mem359, do you have this issue on your system too? When you click "Load Game" on the main menu, does the load game dialog pop up immediately, or does it take some seconds? When I tried it now (multiple times), it pops up immediately. (Also using SSD drive.) I'll keep an eye on this, in case the be...
