Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

Yes, I'd agree on the point about transports; unless you're dealing with tanks and you have Battlemechs you often need 8-12 transports to deal with even a moderately defended planet once the enemy gets Militia tech, and the constant cycling of transports back to fill up on fresh troops means you act...

Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

So I've only got one partially completed test game in (which I'll upload when it's done), but overall I think the changes seem good. My fleet is only a little smaller than I would typically field at this stage in the game but it has also forced me to develop the finance techs and build markets to su...

Re: State of Exploits

1. Ship spinning Done for shield capacity and regen rate optimisation. Shields are generally still OP, and this method still works especially for small ship and larger ones if they lack mounts with forward fire archs (Tinker ships) Workaround: there is a mod for regen fix from Harpy Eagle which hel...

Re: Testing the Current Diplomacy Changes

Just ran into what looks to be a minor bug. If you run into a situation where you have multiple competing colonization attempts and you get the hail asking you to not colonize the system, you can just colonize the planet you want first and then answer the hails and promise to NOT colonize the system...

Re: Two things I noticed, not sure if they are bugs or not

Cool that I found a bug, glad I reported it. Issue on the Militia makes total sense, another good reason to keep morale up!

Two things I noticed, not sure if they are bugs or not

Haven't played in awhile, but noticed two odd things, wondering they are just new behavior or if I should upload the game for a closer look. 1) Noticed that the Orthin had an arid world (which they stole from me) that had a small (1 mil) population of Spice Mongers on it when I retook it. However, w...

Re: Need some way to exterminate species that cannot be enslaved.

However, 'consequence free bombing' probably won't be a feature forever; I believe the intent is once a better Terraforming model gets implemented that too much bombing can lead to environmental degradation.

Re: Testing the Current Diplomacy Changes

Oh this all sounds extremely promising; I will try to fire up a game today and see if I have any useful feedback.

Re: Can We Talk About Diplomacy?

In general I think we need some quality of life improvements around multiple factions; right now it's definitely weird to have two or more of a given faction with the same name, same logo, same leader name, etc, etc. They definitely need some way to differentiate them better.

Re: Alliances

While I would caution against assigning races to arbitrary 'good' or 'evil' alignments, I do agree that being a consistently bad actor (excessive planetary bombardment, buying slaves, etc) should count for something in diplomacy.

Re: Small ships vs Big ships - They havent got a chance

So, first off I'll preface by saying I agree with zolobolo that this is mostly a feature, not a bug; it keeps small ships relevant well into the late game, whereas in most 4X games they are totally obsolete. However, PD weapons really do work against pretty well against missiles, the problem is just...

Re: Akkamaddi's Minor Race Madess, the mod!

So I finally took a crack that this yesterday; I tried just copying the files to mods (and the pop icons), hit an error when I first encountered a new species. Tried to manually merge and had a different error again when I first encountered a new species. Do want me to post my issues?

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

I haven't done a ton of testing but I agree it seems that energy weapon damage vs. shield regeneration seems off in the favor of shields in the more recent builds.

Re: Minor question about Tinkers

Dzibix arose from an automated factory set up by one of the elder races in that period, and so the Tinkers do have a connection to that ancient past, but they are not themselves considered an elder race.


Ooooh, THAT is interesting!
