Re: Long Range Tinkers

And this horrible fate of galactic genocide and stroggification is why I always destroy the Tinkers -- at least when I'm not playing them. :mrgreen:

Re: Please Report Missing and/or Placeholder Text

Unsure if this has been reported previously. https://i.imgur.com/wybSmKD.png The last word in this paragraph does not need the 's. The implied text is: "Their determined colonists are able to make better use of airless or inferno worlds than any other species's [colonists]." It's a classi...

Re: Viscid

Vis - comes from vision and Cid - comes from cytoplasm . That's a weird etymology. Especially when viscid is actually an existing word with a clear etymology related to "viscous". https://www.thefreedictionary.com/viscid 1. Thick and adhesive. Used of a fluid. 2. Covered with a sticky or ...

Re: Mixing shield types

If you have other ships in the fleet, and they won, I figure they can jury-rig something to help the damaged ship jump back out -- maybe just a big towline :lol: ! Otherwise, if all the ships in the fleet are mission killed, then they're lost. The game could assume the enemy (if present in the syste...

Re: Please Report Missing and/or Placeholder Text

Just noticed that one from Noyyau's Tinker playthrough thread . As the fleet is ready to attack Hakon, the Phidi finally lose their resolve and offer a juicy peace treaty. https://i.imgur.com/j3q6RsJ.jpg It should be a cessation of hostilities, not a cession . Cession is what they're doing with thei...

Re: Suggest a game setup for me to beat

Play as the humans, with all factions present, and only 8 star systems. :P

Re: Multiple Deep Space Scanners

I kept symmetry by putting the scanner on the weapon slot, and putting weapons on the scanner slots.

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Given the basic concept behind Viscids- destructive pests that steal food and are resistant to complete eradication- I think a better implementation of Viscids than existing as population exists. Nothing in their concept suggests they should be able to prevent clearing land for settlement, and so t...

Re: DLC 3 and 4, from the Suggestions thread...

I would assume that GoG and evne direct sale had a higher sales volume as the game was available there sooner and the community supporting the development likely pre-ordered it there Steam generally represents over 90% of PC sales for video games. Why do you think so many developers don't bother pu...

Re: DLC 3 and 4, from the Suggestions thread...

The idea of some netherspace ("anti-hyperspace") critters that has come up before could make a fine endgame threat. Kind of like the Antarans in MOO2, or the Reapers in Mass Effect, or Them from Star Control, or whatever threat the Vasari are fleeing in Sins of a Solar Empire, etc.: monste...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

IGremak also keep their "Slavemaster" trait which is really cool if someone thinks to combine their harmonised version with slaves Well there's always the Enfi. I guess it'd make sense for the Tinkers to also harmonize the Enfi, even if as far as gameplay goes it wouldn't really change an...

Re: 4k Resolution

It looks like the font size scales up faster than the screen size. If the "Hail fleet" and "Ignore" buttons were written in the same font size as the "Orthin landing" event title, there wouldn't be such an overlap. (And it'd still be perfectly readable.)

Or you could get a bigger desk and make yourself a three-monitor setup! :lol:
