Suggestion - Game start with pre-explored

Suggestion: At the start of a new game, make the systems within reach of your ships pre-explored. Reason: The first decisions of the game include choosing where to send your starting ships, (which includes a colony ship). The effect of colonising the best available planet, within range, at the start...

Cheat Engine Speed Test

I tried the game with Cheat Engine's "Speedhack" option on, set to 3.0. I was wondering whether someone could try this also and confirm whether AI turns go faster or not. The console reports much higher turn times, as the game's clock is running faster. But the actual speed... perhaps a mi...

Re: Short naive questions

I gave it a try. I had to set the multiplier to 0.00001 to get all the techs on turn 2. The AI got them as well. The game started out like it was going to be interesting. Scaling up production while thinking about getting early defenses. But after just a few turns the AI turns quickly slowed down. B...

Re: Short naive questions

I'd like to poke in a little question here: If you change "tech_cost_mult" to something like tech_cost_mult=0.0001 , does it effectively make all tech get researched on Turn 1? Would that make an interesting and fun game vs the AI when you all have all tech' from the start? Does the AI des...

Build Queues - Player Designed Automation Suggestion

The game has automated planet production. But it can't handle every situation. Particularly when a new tech' is researched - there is no re-evaluation of what is best to build at that time. It also doesn't alter according to a player's current strategy. A planet on automated production doesn't re-ev...

Re: Ground Combat - Streamlining Suggestion

""...there would be no sense producing troop transports anymore and thus the production decision options would decrease" - The troop transport could be renamed as an armed freighter and added to the trading pool like any other transport. The ship selector that already exists for the t...
