Re: Please Report Missing and/or Placeholder Text

game_3502
It says that Ashdar Prime's fertility is low, so all population food production is reduced to 0. However, on the same screen it says that citizens produce 3+1=4 food.
It's also starting with 2 farms - probably expecting no food from inhabitants.
Wasn't sure where to post it.

Re: Huge map experience on "brutal"

Phidi, 300 stars, marathon: SiS_GC_Results_300_marathon.PNG Science is even more expensive than on epic. In addition buildings, ships and diplomacy actions (including buying slaves) are more expensive (unlike on epic). 300 stars seems like the right size for the marathon and didn't make the engine s...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Is there a reason not to allow transferring the rest of certain race from a planet if it's less than a 1000000 (but more than 250000)?

Re: SiS Updater and Installer

I'm receiving a yellow "NOTICE" saying that the latest version is 20026 while I'm running 20025 and I need to update. Meanwhile the updater says I'm up to date.

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

... the terraforming system ... I never use it, since I find most games can be won or lost before it becomes available, so it's not one of my higher priorities. Interesting. I guess it's relatively easy to kill_them_all_fast with just Heavy Hulls (or even Miniaturization for Yoral) and Railguns (bo...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

I am not sure I like the lack of slower-than-light engine technologies . This means your ships' speed in the tactical mode is determined solely by their size. You can increase your "hyperspace" speed, but not the "sublight" speed. That's a missed opportunity in my opinion; resea...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

An option (!) to don't show a terraforming option if:
it significantly decreases total population cap;
it destroys unique biome (some home worlds, Paradise, Gaia);
it destroys a native environment of the local minor race (unless you improve it for them).

Coral mechanics

I'm wondering how do Coral Blooms work. If it's just some "supercorals" - why can't I "apply" them to a small Ocean world?

Re: Phidi are rather politicians than merchants

Here is an another insult added to the injury - it uses (the whole) Trade Ship to transport a single "colonist" even if there is a Transport available in the trade pool. It seems like the Phidi is just an another "half baked" part of the game. Even worse - if you send 2 "un...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Fusion and Antimater Missiles technologies contain anti-missiles, but don't require "Anti-Missiles" technology - I think it should (or anti-missiles should be hidden without it).

Re: SiS Updater and Installer

If these kinds of service outages do seem to be happening fairly frequently, let me know. Well, I can't update since this morning (tried several times). Ok. I don't really understand what's going on; but, clearly, the lower-spec server option is having issues. I've just switched us back to the slig...
