Re: Tactical Combat AI Mod

Ship placement and positioning is probably an entire topic in itself. I think this is making it to the top of the list now, a lot of issues come from current ship placement and positioning the thing is, a single formation is not going to solve this, you need different formation depending on situati...

Re: Using the Combat, Economy and Research Path AI Mods

you can edit file new_galaxy.lua in folder Setup look for this section of the code I think those science bonuses and discount bonuses are a bit high for mods you are using EDIT: you need to start a new game for changes to apply (I think) if galaxy.difficulty == 'normal' empire.resource_bonus = 1 emp...

Re: various improvements for ease of empire management

Also: would you be interested to do a pie-chart based on the sum of all pop types in the diplomacy menu - wherever it can be inserted? This is nothing important game-play wise but it should look rely cool to see the empire composition. Think Stellaris had something like this, but due to the boring ...

Re: various improvements for ease of empire management

ok, so here it is ... I want to clean it up (i.e. it may not work from Mod folder at the moment) at some point and maybe completely switch to SCOPE_call instead the way how it is done now ... fixed un-harmonized Tinkers also some scaling should be better now, it needs to be done per icon for instanc...

Re: various improvements for ease of empire management

small_shadowed_word_drawer(format("%d",2))(x,y) thanks Sven, will look into that ... at some point ... I just need a bit of time off, just finished big control related project (lots and lots of time spent in various control algorithms and PLCs) and I don't feel like looking into any code ...

Re: Shield Regeration Rate Mod

If everything were linear we wouldn't need to worry about these second-order effects from stacking stuff. But the impact of regen isn't linear, so I still think it's the regen. regen is not linear in absolute values, it is in relative values, i.e. percentage ... I guess we have different opinion on...

Re: Tactical Combat AI Mod

The next thing I want to look at is making the AI possibly not retreat transports in combat if it is likely to win. It's pretty silly when a massive invasion fleet arrives at a planet, but because there's a few defenders all the transports leave and then have to be sent back. this leads into follow...

Re: Shield Regeration Rate Mod

I think the problem with shields occupying system slot is that it is incredibly hard to balance ... for big ships you needs to have multiple system slots, so the ship really feels like big ship that can do multiple roles ... but the moment you decide to overload the ship with as many shields as poss...

Re: Shield Regeration Rate Mod

maybe all we need is a dedicated shield slot that accepts shield only and remove ability to put shields into system/station slots ... so you can have only one shield per ship I must say it was quite interesting to add new hardpoint type, it is spread over 4 files, if I captured everything ? well, fi...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

OK, just gonna report this here because I'm pretty sure it is a bug. When you research fusion warheads you gain access to fusion anti-missiles even if you haven't research the anti-missile tech. It doesn't make sense that you can now make fusion anti-missiles if you don't yet know how to make regul...
