Re: Hi all, back again.

A while back, there were some similar looking planetary backgrounds in the art folder for just this purpose.

The idea was discarded.

Re: Proposal for elimination of Population

The more krikkit has to say, the better this idea looks.

To be honest, I was never really sure what construction did anyway.

Re: New Buildings

A thought: Maybe the term buildings is misleading; it gives the aura of something mundane. Perhaps they should have a term like "achievements" instead, which goes to mean "something remarkable" or "accomplished through superior ability", and helps to specify their value. And now, In the spirit of th...

Re: Special elements

Okaaaaay, but I don't know nuthin' bout' no "racial-techs". That's an entirely different story.... Back to topic: Things like Zeon and Xentronium will work fine as planetary specials, with no additional work required once they are under friendly jurisdiction. Simply controlling the planet this resou...

Re: Tech Icons

No I like that idea, but this icon is 128x128 pixels and shows up even smaller in the tech tree. A chessboard has a lot of detail and right now I'm more concerned about making an easily recognizable icon. It probably doesn't matter that it doesn't say space. If I find a way to make a chessboard work...

Re: Special elements

These special elements would fall under the greater umbrella of planetary specials amirite? I think the limit is when your elements start behaving and looking like other elements. For planetary specials the limit could be as high as 30 unique objects, maybe 7 of them would be special mineral resourc...

Thanks. :) And yes, the medical thingie and the supply thingie are on the right track. Actually I think we have a medical thingie.

Re: Make me a list of sound effects

Take a guitar string, strum it, slooooooow the sound down digitally. Try other musical instruments; some of them make really weird noises. Maybe if you play with them enough you won't even recognize them.

I don't have a mic, sooo.....

Guitar-Powered Lasers anyone?
