Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

When an ally asks you to start a war of aggression against another empire, I'd like an option like "now's not the time" or "we're not ready" which tells the ally that you accept to help them, but wait a dozen turns first before the war starts. I like that idea. I really like the...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

I think, hive worlds should be always infertile. Description says something about destroyed biosphere. So getting one is not only sheer gain, but also liability of shipping all that food for the enormous population. I think the reason is industrial farms and greenhouses. Think automated industrial ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

So, this is from the testing economic balance thread, but my reply is more appropriate here. One more idea: the Gremak war could have benefited from something like an "unconditional offer of surrender" diplomatic event; the war dragged on for too long. (snip snip) That's the next thing on ...

Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

Also, found a bug: around stardate 1336 there are two Tinker transports flying back and forth around the Eye of Dzibix - the left-overs of the already-destroyed Tinker empire. I.e. the empire was destroyed earlier in the game, but those transports remained Yes, this is a thing. When an empire vanis...

Carriers as Troop Transports?

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone else has toyed with this. I compulsively capture ships, and the Gremak Assault Carrier is amazing as a troop ship. It's as fast as lighter ships, can take over most smaller ships in one go, and drops three armor units on the ground during invasion. It's also much better e...

Mod: Tweaks to Happiness for minor races

Tweaks to Happiness This is a very small mod started on another thread. It gives several small morale tweaks to the minor races, making them respond differently than just another "generic pop unit". It can cause some challenge early in the game, adding a new layer of social strategy, but ...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Yeah, I noticed that and reported it previously, transports of allied empires I had annexed permanently going into strange systems (including a hyperspace anomaly). I think it's because we don't seem to inherit the annexed empire's trade fleet. Is there a way to clean this up in the save game? The ...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

So... I invade the first (of many, mwa-ha-ha :twisted: ) pirate bases, defeat their defenses, go to liberate the slaves and swell my empire, but of course first stop by the treasure vault, and... See Sven and Arioch looking up at me with a very indignant "the infernos you doin' here?" http...

Re: Terraforming

So... Arioch, put a pin in that too? :lol:

When spying is fleshed out, if we have sabotage missions, sabotaging a terraforming operation should let us take out a pop unit or two.

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

It seems that if an allied empire merges with yours, any civillian population transports in motion will remain as a "ghost" of the old empire. This is the second game where I have one (I think both Phidi, even) that just bounces between two systems.

Re: New DLC

A while back (over a year), one of you mentioned about a race that was the typical 4x game's "unfriendly", with minimal diplomacy and other races driven out of their system. I'm guessing that the polymorphism within the Zubelengen, and that their description fragment in the current files i...
