Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Bug report, turn 182:

At Ukko: Mines caused 112 damage to the Oberlus fleet Foreign fleet.

But they didn't. All his ships are at max hp, apart from the two that got shot during the combat.

Mines have worked before, just not on this fleet.

Re: Twelfth game on the multiplayer slow game server

I don't think that's fair. Oberlus was at pains to compensate the rest of us for the advantages he gained from Ophiuchus leaving. Ophiuchus left for RL reasons, which is always beyond reproach.

Re: Twelfth game on the multiplayer slow game server

Uh oh. I am now googling Starsector and Shadow Empire, while Stellaris loads.

Sorry Oberlus, our galactic chess game may stall!

Re: Twelfth game on the multiplayer slow game server

Does 0.4.10.1 have influence? It's going to be an interesting experience if it does - and I think we might want to be more open to fixes/updates if we're testing that.

Otherwise I think we should eschew updating for new functionality unless it fixes bugs we all want fixed.

Re: Twelfth game on the multiplayer slow game server

I'd like to play, and I support both Oberlus's and L29Ah's suggestions: no server updates (unless to fix an egregious bug, agreed by remaining players), and alliances on - but I would suggest no more than 3 allies can win, to save it devolving into 5vs4 or whatever.

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

I agree too. Giving gifted colonies zero happiness/PP/RP (like being conquered) we could do now. Then when influence is working that could be the resource that allows gifting. Bearing in mind you only have to give one colony to give your ally your good pilots/research/production, it can be quite exp...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Did they have bad industry then? I'm pretty sure they were bad at one of the two, not just bad troops. Maybe not. It's nice that the game evolves.

I'm sure last time I played Laenfa they had bad research!

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Oh Malin, yes that was Dany's jewel in the crown. Very nice. He quit when I managed to take 4 of the 5 in one turn... (I waited for advanced troop pods to do it)

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Oooh interesting. I'm up for that if Hyp wants to! On starts, I don't know whose start wobbly is describing - both his and my starting systems had only our homeworlds. My start was not especially good but when Hyp and I exchanged species I suddenly had much more potential because I had a lot of Barr...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Holy Lord, I've just seen Oberlus's starting system - I don't think I've ever seen one this good - it beats the one L29Ah had in the game he won. Nice!

Besides, I have a ringside seat for Oberlus Doomstack Meets Pirate Doomstack, and I want to see what happens!

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Yes, like un-nerfing Good Pilots!

Any chance we can get a quick fix for conceded empires before that release? Even if we just kept the troops artificially at pre-concede levels (if it's too hard to implement tech retention), that would make a big difference.

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

My suggestion for an even simpler post-concede AI was to switch all planets to defence focus, which would leave an almost negligible number of PP and RP to worry about...

I think keeping the techs is perhaps the most important.

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

I see Oleg is going scorched earth - concentration camps. It means I need to rebuild the colonies but it saves me a lot in troop ships, so swings and roundabouts I guess - now that conquered colonies take five turns to start accumulating PP the difference is much less than before and the value of ev...
