Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Two more observations while I remember: 1. The snowballing nerf, which is excellent, has rendered force-energy structures pointless - you don't really need to invest in it because your PP and RP grow so slowly. My suggestion is to make it much cheaper and quicker to research but only increase meter ...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

I think the ring shape was considered fairest because each player has two neighbours - which tends to mean ally on one side and war on the other. I got lucky this game because Danny focused on wobbly and ignored me. though it did make for a very boring first 70 turns or so. Other galaxy shapes are m...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

I have absolutely no idea whether I can compete with Oberlus or Oleg - it will be interesting to see! I got to see 80% of your planets. You have more production and more research than me. Indeed it will be interesting! In which case it will all come down to how quickly you can take his remaining pl...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Interesting - this game seems to have a smoother elimination curve than previous games (which have sort of had almost everyone hanging in there and then bam, it's all over). Even at this stage I have absolutely no idea whether I can compete with Oberlus or Oleg - it will be interesting to see!

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Meanwhile, at the other end of the galaxy, the insects launched an audacious push for the fallen Scylior homeworld, Athens. It worked brilliantly - they lured us out one jump too far in an expert game of cat and mouse, sent their troop ships round the back and used their monstrous kraken to prevent ...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Who are we waiting for? Maybe me. I'm in the beach until 2100 CET. At the risk of giving unsolicited advice, you might like to know that "on the beach" means you're literally sitting or standing on the sand, while "at the beach" means you have line of sight to the sand, but may be sitting at a bar ...

For anyone looking at the previous thread, it's https://freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11400

I hadn't realised that it was switching off the info leakage that caused the weapon damage numbers to show incorrectly. We definitely want one but not the other!

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

It wasn't wild in the sense that it was accessible by road so yes you could carry lots of kit in your car. There was also running hot and cold water for showers and washing (as well as nearby rivers to swim in). But there were no flushing toilets, only composting toilets - so a bit more wild than a ...

Fog of war

Hi all, How hard is it to hide the Pedia info on what other players have researched? I find it really immersion-breaking that every other empire knows exactly what I have researched every turn. Plus it doesn't fit with other aspects of the game, like not being able to see the true power of your enem...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

I can't turn - I connect but stuck forever in lobby. Started only now, turned ok a few hours ago (same setup). Will try once more then again in the morning (it's bedtime here). I really do not want to miss this turn. Looks like the server got slow Internet connection. It works but much slower. Ok t...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

P.P.S. Can arc disruptors still hit everything (fighters, ships and planets)? Or has that been changed? I know I complained about it in the last game I played but is it still the case? Given the RP cost I hope so! Yes, it helps against planets. But AD2 is already a waste against fighters (actually ...

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

P.S. Can anyone confirm whether the piloting bug also applies to Reinforced Hull? Does it increase hull strength by 40, or still only by 5?

Re: Eleventh game on the multiplayer slow game server

Yeah I have to say I think it's turned out ok - Oberlus has a big stealth advantage but lacks air superiority meaning knackered supply. I know that's easy for me to say as I'm the one furthest from the mess. But I still think that the current concede mechanic (everything is left to be conquered but ...
