Re: Planet Habitat Displays?

Totally different way of looking at this .... But let's say that a particular plant has an area of 10, and that 5 of that area is forestland, 2 desert, and 3 shallow ocean. From the player's perspective, they are interested in how much population can I cram onto this planet? Each point of area, depe...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

From a world-building perspective, I think multi-species colonies are interesting. ..... This is all good stuff. Couple of design thoughts: Relative to my other post about different types of actions, all of this is squarely in the "optimization" action realm. It's a puzzle-like minigame (...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

edit: As I keep mulling this over, I'm once again leaning towards the conclusion that the best approach may just be to show less -- i.e., to leave the particulars of the habitat types and numbers out of the planet summary pane entirely. If the system is working as intended, then reading the text de...

Re: [FEEDBACK] Initial Reactions

EDIT: Also - from reading other forum posts, I suspect there is more going on under the hood of the game than the UI and basic presentation would lead one to believe. As I said, I still really need to dig into the combat system more (I won a number of battles stumbling through so far!) and want to g...

Re: [FEEDBACK] Initial Reactions

This is one that I am worried about -- and the build times, (particularly for scouts, destroyers, and transports) are certainly due for an adjustment. But, I'm also wary of over-correcting -- building your first colony ship or cruiser should be a big deal. There a 40 turn cost is roughly appropriat...

[FEEDBACK] Initial Reactions

Having not seen a design document (do you have one you can share?) I really have no idea what design features/elements are working as intended or are place...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements
