Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Fargone is supposed to be just a temporary stop for the nomadic Human fleet Shouldnt they then see more systme that the initial one (if they have passed them by)? Would also be a neat balance outfor their weak starting position (knowing what is around them from the start) That would have balance im...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Could we get planet names in Rastaban, Fargone, and Bacabs? It's difficult for me to swallow that the Ashdar Colonials never named their world in thousands of years, and I'd imagine even the Fargone planets would get some names after long enough with Humans hanging around (which, given they've name...

Re: Auto Migration?

It takes two clicks to move one unit of population from the planet info screen (shift-click on the pop icon, then click on the destination in the Planetary Report), and one extra click for each additional unit. Not sure how to make that much simpler without having the AI do it for you, in which case...

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

Development hasn't been "halted," but there hasn't been much progress in the last month or so. Hopefully we can make more progress soon.

Re: Space Sim Extravaganza

The space sim genre has a small but very dedicated following, as you can tell from projects like Star Citizen that keep making money from backers even though it's been 20 years and it's still not released yet.

That's not the current plan, but it's a possibility.

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

Realistically, at the speeds and scales of space combat, collisions would be very difficult to achieve (assuming the other vessel was trying to avoid you), and if the attempt was successful, the incredible kinetic energy of the collision would instantly and completely destroy both vessels. In game t...

2. Defensive fire only / Cease fire button You can do this by right-clicking on the name of a weapon in the weapons info pane. The weapon group turns red and is disabled until you right-click on it again. 13 : Capital structure (for only some races) I think a Capital building would make a good part...

Re: Risk of losing Transports if used in invasion?

There's a risk of losing them if they are involved in the battle above the planet, but once the defending fleet and any defensive installations are destroyed, there's no longer anything on the planet that can pose a threat to ships in orbit; there's no risk to transports during the invasion phase. T...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

These are the original star concepts: Very nice :) So the Black Holes were planned from the start just didnt make it into the game yet? Well, when you're in the concept phase, you throw ideas around. We didn't have any gameplay use cases for black holes at the start, so we didn't put them in initia...

I would love to see your take on black hole visualisation :)

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

I thought we had changed the order of the resources in the Planetary Report to match the order in the planet info screen, but I guess it either got un-fixed or it just never happened in the first place. I agree that it makes sense to have the displays be more uniform. The Fleet Report UI doesn't rea...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Maybe some kind of defensive shields could help here. It could take up a defense base slot and reduce the effectivenss of bombardments. Or just equipping shields in the defense blueprints? Those won't protect against bombardment, because they will have to have already been destroyed in order for th...
