Re: Humans on Hard Difficulty

See I don't like the idea of early terraforming, pop gen is important I know, but what we are talking about is a racial feature. The thing that needs to make them better needs to A: be a defining feature that no other faction can use, or use to its fullest and B:Defines humanity as a race and a play...

Re: Humans on Hard Difficulty

Ooh idea for new human mechanic "Come Home" human ships begin appering randomly every 10 turns for 100 turns, then every 25 after that. Small random groups of ships, with random techs in each.

Re: So what is the counter to carriers and/or metric tonnes of missiles?

Hmm...so is it more important for PD to have high Accuracy or high Damage? How do I decide between Laser and Coilgun PD in the beginning? I'd say accuracy is more important, because a PD shot that hits but doesn't destroy the target at least damages it, while a shot that misses does nothing. This i...

planetary defenses scale, I thought, to planet size.

Re: So what is the counter to carriers and/or metric tonnes of missiles?

Yes this is all good, but none of this solves the other problem, killing the thing that does the thing. Kite PD I already grasped, given the near singleminded ness of the ai. This leads into the unfortunate territory of trying to fight an enemy that is better equipped than I due to design or faction...

Re: Can we get nicer ship deployments?

Might be interesting if we had a formation choice before battle. battle lines/curve/triangle/diamond/multiple diamonds.

Re: Maybe stations should have a single shield bubble.

The stations would need to move anyway. Otherwise an attacking force would just go to the other side of the planet. :D How about adding a maneuvering engine to defensive stations? You would be able to slowly move it just like any other ship in a battle. Rotate it to change facing. Have heavy weapon...

Re: Maybe stations should have a single shield bubble.

I would enjoy that micro, I would find it useful.

how about a compromise, rotate the shield on the station 45 degrees. Two shield facings against the enemy.

Re: Maybe stations should have a single shield bubble.

ok, different suggestion, what if the station was on an orbit that went around the battlefield? its currently static, so what if it was on a track?

So what is the counter to carriers and/or metric tonnes of missiles?

I'm either fighting the imperials/colonials or the tinkers, and in the first case you know its fighters/bombers/strike fighters and in the second case its the eternal arsenal of the tinkers. I can invest in a lot of point defence, and I have, but then I'm lacking on the offence to actually break som...

Re: What is your favorite and least favorite ship design?

Maybe if the missile cruisers had a special attack, like the fast missile racks from master of orion, double or triple throw weight but takes turns to reload.

Re: Another bunch of suggestions from a neophyte

I am not sure turns left on a build is really a thing that can be done, as construction is not an upfront cost but cost over time, so you run into issues like metal shortage that can hamstring production.

Re: First impressions and lots of suggestions

I think the issue stems from a lack of modification options. Games of this type normally have improvements with tradeoffs every step of the way. However in most of those games the ships do not have dedicated slots or fixed numbers of items. Master of Orion would have miniaturization, where researchi...

Re: Maybe stations should have a single shield bubble.

My issue is there is three quadrants worth of shield wasted on a station, if there was an option to equalize shields on turn id take it.

Also can we talk about the surprising lack of a heavy weapon on any station?

Re: Maybe stations should have a single shield bubble.

the issue I think is that theres another feature of ships that is not truly enabled on all, and that's directional weapons, I think some of the ships were supposed to have more limited firing arcs but are just 360 degrees shooting. some turrets you can see would be fine in a 270 degree arc, some rea...
