Re: The thing with Marauders

Current version has improved a lot in this department. Marauder bases seem slightly less common, and their tech development seems to be in a suitable level now If the AI starts paying them protection money to them, we are set :) Another way of going about them would be to strengthen the AI to better...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

There are custom reports for the Tinkers; they're just not in yet. I hope it's not inappropriate for me to step in here. That looks like the "you found a minor race" screen. Keeping in mind I haven't played the dev builds, are Tinkers still a minor race in the current Legacies pre-release...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Phidi Trade Ship design does not change visual when selecting Armor Brigade instead of Cargo Pod like the Transport ship design does I assume it should as all other designs seem to do it, and the asset is available from the Transport ship design - since both frames are generally identical, I assume ...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Trade ships containing science stations do not contribute to research once assigned to the trade pool Tried this with Phidi: the idea was to have "Trade ship" design with two cargo holds and a science station instead of shields, so that they can be used as two transport ship in the pool + ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Generally it would be useful to see some some system info on galaxy map level like star-bases But for the most practical and maybe easy implementation: an indication would be good to show which systems have not yet been scanned with an explorer ship Otherwise the player does not know which systems n...

Re: The dread star is way too weak

Its an end- game tech and unbalanced like planet building. Probably serves as an exotic for role-playing If it was to be made stronger it runs the danger of putting off the existing balance for those who do not only play sandbox, but actually drag out the combat till late-game: 1. If it is stronger,...

Re: The dread star is way too weak

which faction exactly have the anti fighter capability it takes to defend against fleet carriers effectively? I would say, the ones that have good escort cruiser layouts: Ashdars and Gremak seem like a good fit I mostly counter them though with simple destroyers (applicable for all races) + escorti...

Re: The dread star is way too weak

There was actually discussion on Yoral Torpedo Cruiser being an OP design due to its torpedo loadout There is also the Colonial and Yoral destroyers bringing 2 torpedoes to the field - en-mass, these torpedo boats are just as effective as bombers as they basically carry exactly the same offensive ca...

Re: The dread star is way too weak

This actually doesn't seem that bad If I have to chose between 1 Fleet carrier and 4 such escort cruisers, the later is a sure win (3 would be guess equally matched) They should be able to fend off the fighters before they even come into range, and the carrier is left almost defenseless while the 4 ...

Re: The dread star is way too weak

A weapon is much more powerful then other weapons if it do the same amount of damage as others when enemies have spent additional resources on special counter measures against it. I think missiles and torpedoes should become more difficult to shoot down and also travels faster, and carriers should ...

Re: The dread star is way too weak

The question is: can you destroy a planet with carrier? This is where the added value for DS comes from in my opinion not as a superior type of fleet asset. Its a classical game-ender tech and as such it does not need to replace existing craft types Super Dreadnought mounts Stellar Surge Beam just ...

Re: The dread star is way too weak

Isn't mounting a Stelllar Surge Beam the deal of a Dread Star? If so, they basicaly serve as game-ender and their primary fucntion is not to engage fleets and repalce existing warhip types Cost-wise it makes sense for them to be more costly then a ship with the same weaponry due to their size (lore)...

Re: Which is your favorite race and why?

I would suggest utilizing Influence resoruces for Diplomacy Victory Similarly to how metal is a key resource for Conquest victory To win diplomatically, the empire needs to: 1. Create enough alliances to win the game 2. Creating alliances should thus be costly in terms fo influence, and should not b...

Re: Which is your favorite race and why?

Peaceful victories are pretty easy at the moment with the Phidi (or, with anyone, really), but as we add more detail to the diplomacy system, it should get a little more complicated. But hopefully no less fun. Just played a new game with latest patches and Phidi declared war on me shortly after we ...
