Re: Star Harpy updates

Checked if I can shoot out the Warp Node with a Stellar Surge beam like a pinata (to see what is inside), but to no avail :)

Re: Star Harpy updates

I agree. Though it was no surprise, the AI does have some issues coping with this new additional threat Tested the game in small galaxy and two empires: Imperial and Human: - Played Phidi and never attacked anyone + always gave the AI whatever it has requested + Marauders have been modded down befor...

Re: Phidi ship layouts

Yes, the idea is clear in this case and I like that a lot for all the other designs: Trade Ship and Armed Merchant - this also comes across in their multi-purpose nature But it is exactly that that struck me when I was first playing them: In case of multi-purpose ships it makes sense to use the same...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Harpies have invaded my colonized system a couple of times as well as that of an AI controlled empire: I have read somewhere that they should only go for uninhabited systems If they attack empires when they are declared war upon, that makes sense as I did do that to see what would happen, but in thi...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Increasing range of Ion cannon (small PD, medium as well as Heavy) would make it a viable option compared to Lasers with Rapid Fire mod Currently, laser is clearly better then Ion PD as: - It can be researched earlier - Can be equipped with AP mod - Min damage with RF is 2X higher then that of Ion P...

Phidi ship layouts

So I was testing the new Harpy mechanic and how AI empires react to it by playing Phidi Didn't play them for a long time now as diplomacy is not yet fully fetched so found a couple of things: - Torpedo Destroyer cannot mount torpedo - this might be since the torpedo/missile change - Trade ship has b...

Yeah it is a sleek and unnerving design and yes the teeth are moving mate. Don't worry its not just you :)

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

This game is so incredible - both graphics and gameplay-wise so that it is the only space strategy sitting still on my computer and mind that the following games got deleted from me after several playthroughs - EndlessSpace 2 , Polaris Sector Lumens and the new version of Stellaris, Dawn of Androme...

Re: 2 nasty trick to try

I was talking about creating an actual military unit, or perhaps converting a population unit into a military unit. If you have slave units on a planet, one of the new units you could research (Gremak get it free) and build would be Slave Battalion. They would be cheap, so you could crank them out ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

There are a couple of issues when multiple races from the same kind are present in a galaxy The most obvious one is the overuse of the color light blue on the strategic map as the image shows. Note that the screenshot shows 6 races with this color: 1 Orthin 1 Gremak 1 Tinker 3 Yoral (one of them is ...

Re: 2 nasty trick to try

You can think of them as penal battalions, if you like. Penal / Slave Battalions is actually a good idea. Bonus to damage, but debuff to defense (you're not going to waste armor on them), and if possible I would suggest they have a "two balls in the hopper" chance (I'm not sure how you ha...

Re: Star Harpy Stewards

Can confirm the autopsy rewards for the first three types: Harpy Harvester, Medator and Steward Haven't shot down a Herald since the reward has been implemented that I can recall. For capturing a HSA, the only two bonus currently that I can tell is that there will be not further Harpy invasions spaw...

Re: Star Harpy Stewards

Agreed, it is always nice to see additions to this game and I have been hyped for the rest of the two crafts layed out in the DEV blog I was hoping that the smallest Harpies will be spawned from Harpy nests, but hope these will still be implemented like forward bases or maybe tied in with the engine...

Re: Do the phidi seem to be acting odd?

Tested with following: - 12 Systems - 2 empires (mine and a Phidi) - Close distance between stars - Normal game speed - Hard AI difficult Result was quite surprising: 1. Phidi took over much of the available planets within the first 15 turns. 2. Phidi seems to have started the game with several scou...

Re: Do the phidi seem to be acting odd?

I have also seen this quite a lot. Mostly it seemed to be due to their limited compatibility with planets. Interestingly though, when I have been playing around with difficulty modding, they got super buffed and basically rolled over all the other races which does not make sense if the above were tr...
