Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Given the recent improvements to resource output of various minor races, I suggest that the coin income of Human refugees be increased to 0.5. I understand and agree that while they're in a relatively primitive state, they should be a 'negligible source of tax income', but I sincerely doubt their ec...

Re: Lore question: orbital periods

Also to be hoped: that AI Gremak Empires will start actively buying slaves from neighboring Marauder groups, and that they'll have their AI actively weighted to establish peace with Marauders. This then makes the description of the Gremak relying on Marauders as a pipeline for slaves a reality...

Re: Lore question: orbital periods

Thanks for the fix! I continue to love your game, and eagerly look forward to future improvements. Maybe sometime soon the AI will get a bit smarter about dealing with Marauder factions, or at least the tech gain on Marauders will be toned down... it seems silly when the cutting edge of military tec...

Re: Lore question: orbital periods

Thanks for the information, and your quick answer. I feel more comfortable with most of the class-M orbital periods now (although, of course, the Fargone orbital periods seem questionable).

Lore question: orbital periods

I assume that when orbital periods are listed for bodies, the 'days' measuring the period are 24-hour Earth days, rather than whatever the local rotational day is? Also: are orbital periods around M-class stars supposed to be that short? I've seen orbital periods shorter than Luna's on some worlds. ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

I suggest that Gaiads, Viscids, and (possibly) dissidents of any species should be exempted from counting for improvement staffing requirements, as they currently do. It's possible, I suppose, that dissidents are still doing some work- although I tend to take the fact they don't even produce food an...

Re: Which is your favorite race and why?

I like playing the Phidi Combine, both for lore and for my usual strategy game preference of 'focus on peaceful development, with little or no war'. They're well-suited for my usual strategy game playstyle, which is... well... not aggressive.

Re: Trade and Research Treaty Calculation

For what it's worth, the 'more valuable' foreign trade routes provide a bonus two coins apiece when taken advantage of, on top of the normal one coin income for a worked trade route. But I can't quite work out how it determines how many foreign trade routes are available... As an experiment, I just ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

AI empires currently do not actively ship population between planets. As an AI issue, this is understandable, but it means that AI empires do not take advantage of the presence of multiple species to boost population caps. I suggest that AI empires, if in possession of a planet that could have incre...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

This is a fun one. Got a graphical freeze on clicking to start a battle while I was being attacked by Death's Hand pirates, but the (combat) music is still running and the in-game pointer still moves- I'm just stuck looking at the galaxy map and the 'attacked at Sargas' window at the bottom, and the...

Re: Trade and Research Treaty Calculation

Trade Charters add new foreign trade routes which are more lucrative than the standard internal routes you start with. Your transports in the trade pool will automatically select the best routes. I don't know exactly how these values are calculated, so I'll have to get back to you on that. Yeah, I ...

Trade and Research Treaty Calculation

How are the values of trade and research treaties calculated? I don't know the details, but I know from experience that it seems as if the majority of the revenue of my neighbors comes from their trade with me, while the benefit of any individual trade treaty for me is relatively minor. (And yet, I ...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

In r20686, clicking on Factories, Labs, or Markets no longer brings up the Scrap Improvements dialogue for those improvements. Farms and Mines can still be scrapped, however.

Re: Some thoughts from a new player

Speaking of AI issues, it would be nice to see the AI build a market every now and again. Even the Phidi, who I know start with the technology, never seem to have any markets but the single starting market on Tendao when I play. (Meanwhile, they build factories everywhere , in a manner their metal p...
