Re: White Kraken

Well, you resurrected the kraken which was in the ice before.... And isnt that a great kind of pokemon ;) I suppose this means you indeed get only one? Because I just found an old discussion where it's stated that the special can only be found on tundra planets, and since I colonized and terraforme...

White Kraken

What exactly is the deal with the Kraken in the Ice special? Found one, built a xenolab there, got a single White Kraken who looks like a toned-down Great K and doesn't (apparently) mature, and the special is gone? Is it just flavor or am I missing something?

Planetary Barrier Shield values

I think there's something slightly wrong with the shield increases in the Planetary Barrier Shield tech tree: +30/+60/+90/+150/+150. It seems the intent was to give a consistent +30 bonus for each upgrade, but then PBS4 should give +120 instead of +150, right?

Re: Collective Thought Network

I suppose building 2 or more CTNs should still give the bonus, if at least one of them is left "undisturbed" in any given turn, right? If the answer is yes, has anyone actually tested if this works?

Re: Curious - was it a feature or a bug

Idea: why not divert excess research to a sink (or an unbounded research technology, if you wish) that would decrease the production costs of ship hulls and parts? If memory serves, there was something like this called "Miniaturization" (or something similar) in the original MOO games. Should probab...

Re: Regime change on the homeworld - worth it?

And given that you already own the Kobunturas homeworld (set to growth focus), ... Aha, I hadn't yet realized that conquered native homeworlds had a focus thingy of their own, so far I always treated them like any other planet. Good to know. Self Sustaining species (like Kobuntura) don't get Homewo...

Regime change on the homeworld - worth it?

I've been playing FreeOrion for about a month now (btw, really great work, guys!), and I've been pondering this for a while. Say, you're far enough in a game (200+ turns), tech research is nearly done, and now your only focus is production at all costs. A lot earlier, you conquered a production-orie...

Re: industrial center, bombardement, building targetting

...but I disagree about the micromanagement. Currently industrial centers don't add to the game. You research the tech and just build the IC somewhere where the enemy can't take it over too easily. No fun in that. No fun? Why then stop at Industrial Centers, since there are other buildings that use...

Re: industrial center, bombardement, building targetting

Industrial center Not sure if it has been discussed before, but I think they should work as an AOE building, meaning that they only have an effect over a couple of starlane jumps. Say 3 jumps for the level 1 building, 5 for lvl 2, and 7 for lvl3. Only one industrial center would be allowed per empi...
