Re: Supply from other worlds

I agree. I can't see how foreign supply [which, if I'm correct, represents stuff like workers, material etc] is able to block other supply if they're civil/unarmed. Especially in space where space is abundant. Though I like it from a game mechanic perspective that supply becomes something to still c...

Re: My Feedback

It even can be of an advantage, eg. if a system is reclaimed then the race can continue their colony building. Or if a colony is destroyed by an attack depopulating it etc pp then you could also decide to finish the building that's already been started.

Re: My Feedback

If the colonies starts are of different species, I believe that you can start two at the same outpost. Another possible explanation could be that an outpost was captured by a race, which couldn't go on and finish an already begun colony-building. This then gets stuck greyed out in the queue and mos...

Re: Did you ever quit a game because it was too easy?

At some point next cycle we need to rework the Experimentors so they're an actually fun end game challenge without being too overpowering, perhaps having them do different random things with chances based on galaxy seed settings? Perhaps have their strength &/ unleashtime set in correlation with th...

Re: My Feedback

I've even seen the AI make too many outpost base vessels in a system. I'm not even sure how that could happen. They aren't labelled as decoys and the number of planets never gets smaller. So I'm not sure how it makes a couple too many. Surely the computer can count planets as well as I do. See this...

Re: My Feedback

What puzzles me is that fleeting ships together doesn't reduce lag. In other game it does so significantly. Given that there's no upper limit on the number of ships you can fleet in FO together, if a fleet would just be handled by the game like a single ship it would solve the issue at hand. Salvage...

Re: My Feedback

Make sure you have the game window selected when doing such a test, as it will drop the FPS substantially when it doesn't have the UI focus, in order to minimize background CPU usage. There are separate options for FPS limit for in and out of focus mode, in the options video section.That said, if y...

Re: My Feedback

You're right that the number of ships is a problem, but not because of AI decision making, it's that all the hulls, and each individual part, has to be processed through at least twice because they frequently effect each other in some way. But there must be more at large than this. Because, even at...

Re: My Feedback

I also raised the lag-issue multiple times but your solution wouldn't actually solve anything - if my current tolerance of lag allows the creation of a 500 system galaxy, and you generally reduce totalshipcount by 50% - then the only thing it'll ultimately mean is I can now create a galaxy holding 1...

My vision for a Free Orion Campaign :)

Every good game has one, so at one point in time FO needs one as well :) Let me just point out a few things that may be accomplished with it: - Introduce new players how to play the game, mostly by progressively introducing technologies. - Deliver interesting background stories to all the races that...

Re: My Feedback

What do you want with big hulls early on? You don't have the necessary production to complete such a ship anyway - esp. if you're also suggesting to generally increase hullcosts as well... Let's say it takes 20 turns to construct a single such ship for Egassem - and 60 turns for Etty - then the Egas...

Re: My Feedback

Well to have an extended outside view of your surroundings can quite positively influence strategic decisions - you may find an outside world with a needed growthspecial (in order to unlock previous uninhabitable worlds) or a Monsternest or Ancient Ruins, so someone might deem it worthwhile to const...

Re: My Feedback

I'm with Wobbly on that; but I realize that perhaps our different evaluation is based on different map-outlays. I play on 'Low Starlane' 'Low Planet Density' 'Low Specials' & 'Low Natives' almost exclusively because I find that limitation more challenging to overcome that if everything is basically ...

Re: My Feedback

Those two initial scouts and fighter get killed by absolutely anything and the first scanner research is a biggie for those early low count research points. Players do not like having their scouts killed early because they don't want to waste time making more when they prefer to be building colony ...

Re: My Feedback

There's a fast engine available for the Core Slot - but I don't think that propulsion should be made available for external slots - because enginebonuses are stackable [resulting in speed +300 interceptors to pick on unguarded AI troops/scouts]
