Re: Normal Difficulty

The AI starts with 500 extra science on normal, but that's it. Any odd jumps you are seeing are likely the result of captured ships or some other way of gaining tech. Hard and Brutal give the AI enormous bonuses to resource production and make researching techs/constructing ships cheaper as well. If...

Re: Please Consider Managing Expansion

well, one element of most 4x games (including sis) that forces expansion is the technological virtuous circle. Scientific progress increases your efficiency; higher efficiency increases your science production and increases your ability to expand; thus a larger empire will find it easier to produce ...

Re: Boarding seems to be absolutely useless.

having a bigger crew is highly important for boarding actions. The best boarding ship is virtually always your largest available ship, ideally equipped with a marine quarters. Destroyers are the worst possible candidates to board with. Boarding with a smaller vessel will always incur disproportionat...

Re: Weapon Balance Question: Turbolasers versus Ion Cannons

There is one major flaw in sticking to laser techs - interceptors and strikefighters scale with your best researched weapon, and rapidfire/xray mods don't help.

Re: Two unimplemented or semi-implemented techs I've noted

on this topic, there are some techs that give a bonus to 'infantry' - i assume that means colonists, marines, and raiders. It might be more clear to reword it specifically as providing a bonus to militia, marines, and raiders.

also unclear is how ground strength equates to boarding strength

Re: SiS Ready for Release?

The unfinished stuff does need to be polished off, but the small craft overhaul can probably be pushed in terms of priorities. Worst case for events, they're turned off at release.

But perhaps my standards are low, owing to SOTSII-related trauma.

Re: Orbital bombing acting oddly

Now that you mention it, I have noticed orbital bombing acting oddly. It seems to be fairly all or nothing. Every attack in a turn seems to target the same thing; for example, if the first attack hits an installation, the subsequent attacks tend to also hit installations.

Re: Point Defense VS Anti Missiles

I have tested antimissiles a couple times recently but they seem far worse in practice than they are on paper. I am not sure what's wrong with them. They do less damage than i expected against ships and arn't particularly capable against missiles.

Re: Carriers possible balance issues

Wait, so bombers scale with missile warhead tech...? That seems a little weird given that they are the two different kinds of ordnance. EDIT: Okay, thought about my initial reaction a little. If bombers do the damage of (highest tech missile weapon), they're indistinguishable from reuseable missiles...

Steam version: The unhappiness effect for 'Planet destroyed by x faction' displays the wrong planet in its additional text, i.e.: after the planet Toliman I is destroyed by bombing, looking at a population on Farin II displays: -10 :( : Toliman I Destroyed Farin II was destroyed by the Yoral Khagana...
