Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

3. Fighters do not really have a good role to fill now... Thinking about this a bit, maybe it might be worth looking at giving each type of fighter some additional abilities and controls. Bombers as noted, could use the ability to carry torpedoes. But it might also be a benefit to allow the player ...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Just thinking about how streamlining the ship outfitting might be done. I'm really not a fan of the 'kitchen sink' mega-scroll list. And the filters, while functional are clunky and forgettable things that I barely touch because it's quicker to just 'brute force' the main list. Would a context selec...

Re: My thoughts on Stars in Shadow

Can confirm that using "3" is incredibly entertaining, and gives me just the "I want to fight, but don't want to start a fight" thing I was looking for.

That snippet is definitely going into my mod bin. Thank you for your service.

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

Honestly, espionage systems of any description are kind of frustrating.
If one is adopted for SiS, could there be a game setup option to just disable it entirely please?

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

All the factions on the map got visible at the end of a turn without apparent reason Not 100% certain, but this might be because one of the AIs has met everyone and started off the council stuff, and everyone gets set to 'contacted' so there's no weirdness about voting for mysterious unknown partie...

Re: My thoughts on Stars in Shadow

I suspect there are only realyl two setting currently and all they control is the density of Marauder and Harpy systems. Marauders do nto attack AI even on Extreme I think setup\new_galaxy.lua Lines 541 to 548. Exactly 3 settings. 'None' 'Rare' and 'Default' Changing the divisor on line 542 to some...

Re: Balance on Hard

But why not set to 100 to get a balanced result? How would you know what's balanced until something is changed and the result can be observed and compared? Observing the AI having three times as many ships as a player with a similar population suggested that reducing this value to 1/3 would be a us...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

When creating a game with duplicate instances of the 'same' empire, those second empires ALL share the same colour scheme (cyan), with the sole exception of orthin who use black. There are currently 14 colours defined. Would it be possible to 'mix up' which colour schemes get picked for duplicate em...

Re: Military transports are too strong

Changing the crew value of quarters from 2 to 5 feels like it gives decently worthwhile bonus.
50% more crew rather than 20%.
I actually feel somewhat conflicted when outfitting ships now, instead of just covering everything in shields.

@technology\systems.lua line 667 if you want to play with it.

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

During refit, the top option in this menu (cannot capture it) will always refet ships to their scout design: Can confirm this happens to every ship 'class' which has multiple designs (either default designs or player created). The quick refit button on the planet queue will only show the refit opti...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Honestly, I genuinely believe that the best solution for the Viscid (if they are to stay in the game in thier current form) is to give them the sterile trait so they never grow. That way they behave like a negative planet trait (-pop capacity, -food) rather than being an all consuming horror show of...

Re: More Hull HP

I might be entirely wrong about this, but init_design_specs looks like the right place. The hull value is defined on line 79 by the value "specs.hull". And that in turn is defined on line 104 as depending on another separate (I think) calling of a hull variable which depends on the value &...

Re: Balance on Hard

\AI\navycomposition.lua The function "target_navy_power" is set to 150x the AI empire income. On the basis that the AI seems to be able to support ~3.5x the amount of fleet assets (from observations in numerous games) than the player can, I've set this to 50 and played a few games, and not...

Ah yes: I havent been buying anything from Herald for two reasons: It does not show up most of the time :) As soon as you spend any research on the "Hyperspace Anomalies" tech Herald will start on its way to one of your systems from one of said anomalies. it really feels like cheating to ...

Re: My thoughts on Stars in Shadow

⋅ Even more than humans, Gremak are by far the hardest to play. Their diplomacy sucks because of raiders. And if you ever use their slave powers, you're screwed on diplomacy. Gremak are double awkward both because of this diplomacy malus, and that slaves are in every way worse than the 'b...
