where is "hostile environment cost"?

Hi, Quick question: Where is the hostile environment cost handled in the code? And is it based on the habitability settings of the races, or does it have to be set? Thank you. edit: I've tried setting up visual studio, but I'm getting an error that VS is not set up to receive hints, and VS crashes. ...

Re: Introduce yourself :)

Um... Hi? Again? :oops: Sorry to vanish. Basically, I dropped out of everything I was doing during the last hurricane season, and I'm firing up a game for the first time in about a year. I'm really happy the forum is still active. My minor races mod still works, but I have to update it if I re-post ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

I'm really hoping that swamp worlds get some love in the future. I suggested a while back an alternate to the "metro" environment, something like "cyber". Basically, it would be a cybernetic-infused environment where the Dzibix would have a very high population density, but it wo...

Re: Akkamaddi's Minor Race Madess, the mod!

Thank you! It looks like r21704 is still current. This means you can simply copy the LUA files to the Mods folder and not have to manually merge stuff. If you are working with Chasm's re-balance mod, we change some of the same files. In theory, if you change the mod folder for Chasm's to put "z...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

But if this is not the plan, do you have another idea how to foment conflict in the Galaxy? Currently it is very easy to avoid war with other empires due to the many diplomacy relationship bonuses that present themselves: like helping out with food, metal or signing treaties and a bunch of Influenc...

Re: Akkamaddi's Minor Race Madess, the mod!

This update is built with files from r21704 (from 12/23/17). If you are using that version, you must copy the assets, but you can copy the Lua State folder into the Mods folder. Otherwise, you will have to merge data. http://www.mediafire.com/file/bugmeeei1s99mgb/AkkamaddiMinorRaces_20171227.zip (Li...

Re: Farming on Iceball worlds

Ohhhh.... Sven, this is interesting. From RACES.lua: name = "Abbizi", And so, logically, in farming.lua: Abbizi = {(planets)}, But, no! :o The race name in farming.lua must start with a lower case letter. So, the fix that works is: abbizi = {(planets)}, I remember checking this with Tachee...

Farming on Iceball worlds

Hello, Sorry for the totally random question, but I have a question about one of the races I've added. The Abbizi are vent dwellers like the Orthin, but produce more food. (Abbizi are to Orthing like Threshers are to Phidi.) I've noticed that the Abbizi do not produce food in Iceball worlds (includi...

Re: Next DLC

Yeah, that was a thing from MoO2. Actually, the Antarans would do that on purpose. They would swarm their lightest ships around your hulks. Some of their ships had a special detonation unit that would make a ship's destruction about x4 or x5 as damaging. They would then send in a ship with one of th...

Re: Next DLC

While a "consuming tide" universal enemy race would be cool, I must admit The Gardeners sounds far more interesting. :)

I'm also curious to see the direction terraforming will go.

Re: Next DLC

In the code, it looks like there is some groundwork for the addition of both human and ashdar marauders. There are also pieces of the Zubelengen, what appears to be an aquatic, non-diplomatic ("repulsive") enemy race with a larval, hunter, and soldier form. I think that would be a good add...

Re: Star Harpy updates

OK, small suggestion with the New and Improved Harpies, which I am enjoying. In the game I am playing, they are really infesting the universe. Between them and tiny worlds, it is really hindering the spread of some empires. I just found the Yoral in my game, and they only had two worlds. One possibi...

Re: DLC rebalance mod

This is just a guess, but go to systems.lua in the same folder. Compare your edited one to the one in the game folder, and make sure you didn't "damage" the Ovaries entry. The line that errors out just echoes back information about a ship system, so my guess is you have to find where the o...
