Re: better tech descriptions

except we do have techs and lots and lots of buildings that only effects the builders empire. and as said where effects bleed into other empires we can write that in too. and if the enemy is also a player then he will read "your empire" meaning his empire and not his enemies as well. so both players...

Re: better tech descriptions

just effecting the planet makes sense. actually thing is currently you can only build on one planet in any given system and why shouldnt it be your empire for effects that effect your empire. and something else for any effect that effects enemy empires or all planets equally independant of owner. if...

Re: better tech descriptions

see to me source automatically means the building itself not my homeworld. it still doesnt make sense to me that something i build will automatically effect my competing empires. they have border patrols to try and make sure my industrial waste isnt disposed of on one of thier planets dont they? and...

Re: better tech descriptions

that also seems profoundly stupid to make it so a tech you as the player researches that also automatically helps your competing players. since that didnt make any sense i didnt think this was the case and again "the empire" on it's own is the same as "the source" it is confusing some people (me for...

Re: better tech descriptions

yeah but i presume that the person reading the description will be the controlling empire. in case of things which effect all empires equally i dont say your empire i say any planet. saying things like "your planets or planets in your empire" help people like me read descriptions like this. instead ...

Re: world engines
