Re: DLC 3 and 4, from the Suggestions thread...

I'd rather see the predicted DLC 4 before the DLC 3- culture excites me more than hero characters- but really, I'm very excited about any further development on this game and have been very happy with it so far. I'm eagerly looking forward to DLC 2! The hero unit system is a prerequisite for the cu...

Re: DLC 3 and 4, from the Suggestions thread...

It's cool to hear your general plans, and hope that development will continue so that we see that culture system you proposed. I'm looking forward to it! Given that concepts are fairly vague yet, I nonetheless mulled over an idea where (at least) the Phidi Combine and Ashdar Colonial Republic might ...

DLC 3 and 4, from the Suggestions thread...

So Arioch mentioned there are vague plans to look at espionage systems for any DLC 3 and culture for DLC 4. First, I want to assure Arioch and Sven that I'll be ready to support them by buying those DLCs when they come about; I'm also curious if they have any general thoughts about what they wanted ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

We plan to explore more of the Arda Seed story in future expansions as we get deeper into hyperspace (assuming we're able to get there). Having the AI rename planets would be cute & fun. I am concerned that making the rebellion mechanic more punishing would be kind of like kicking the player wh...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Speaking of more detail in the population morale system, maybe there should be some sort of penalty to the chance of minor colonies offering to be annexed by Tinkers or Gremak? Or at least the Tinkers, anybody could see that's not likely to end well when they're pretty up-front about their desire to...

Re: Hive Worlds

To be clear, I'm not proposing altering anything about Ashdar Prime or other hive worlds spawned onto the map. I'm suggesting that hives as they currently exist be 'ruined' hives, with high fertility and (relatively) low population caps, which might eventually, with very late game technology, be con...

Hive Worlds

While the new terraforming system is being worked on, I have to muse a bit about hive worlds as currently implemented. Hive worlds are... surprisingly limited in the actual increase in population capacity they offer, while maintaining a high fertility. Now, having hive worlds that actually were far ...

Re: "No Master of Orion 2 for You"

Skonar2, a question I had after reading your essay: operating on the assumption that there should be reasons to want to operate on either end of any of the three spectrums you listed for the Diplomats, what, exactly, is the advantage supposed to be associated with being more individualist? As it mak...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

The AI doesn't use the same rules for metal consumption that the player does, so I don't think this kind of optimization would actually benefit the AI. I'm also not sure I like the optics. Although extra power has no use in game terms, surplus power capacity would be useful in a real ship (especial...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

I think, hive worlds should be always infertile. Description says something about destroyed biosphere. So getting one is not only sheer gain, but also liability of shipping all that food for the enormous population. I think we originally had hive worlds as infertile, but it was a serious problem fo...

Re: New DLC

Is pops being happy going to have some purpose yet apart from stopping rebels? Revisiting this: it's not clear that happiness is ever intended to have a purpose beyond a safety buffer. (That said, I end up playing the Phidi partly with an objective to make sure I am creating a happy, prosperous soc...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

"Unruly" races never become unhappy. That... makes a weird sort of sense. They are happy they are setting fire to the streets. :D Thanks. More precisely, they're always 'unhappy', but retain some level of productivity and will not revolt if you keep their morale high enough- but if their ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

So I think the biggest impact of making this change is that the Harpies plasma spitter attack (which is also classified as an energy torpedo weapon) would end up being immune to PD interception. That's a huge change to the early game balance, and I suspect not a good one. Good point, but Harpy enga...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

It would be nice to have some year labels along the x-axis of the Intelligence Briefing graphs so we can better fix when things happened on them. Not necessarily labelling every year, of course, but enough to place points on the graph.
