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

If I come across an enemy planet that has an undesired species (especially the yellow blobs) I often bomb the planet back to stoneage, then colonize it with my own colony ship. I do agree with Arioch that it should be hard to exterminate a native species, but at least cull the species (especially fo...

Re: Tech Tree - Set Research button does not work for currently researched tech

Just set the research on another Tech, the jump back to the current tech. No research is lost since each tech actually has a pool that can be filled whenever you feel like it (good work devs, hate it in other 4x games when you loose research just because you need to change research). You know also t...

Default population in building colony ship/colony should be main race.

This has happened to me several times. A planet that has 2 races, minor race that is bigger because the buggers reproduce faster and main race, starts to build a colony ship. Happy that it is ready I send it on its way only to realize (when colonizing) that I forgot to switch out the minor race in t...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

2 New modules for an outpost Mining outpost As it is now, the small planets have no value and rather "take up space" in the system. How about adding a researchable module "Mining Module" (maybe the tech could come directly after the first mine tech and demand that the Habitat mo...

Re: Best PD?

Does missiles have the same hp as torpedos? If that is the case Id say the primaries are better, but if missiles have lower, the more shots of the turbo lasers would actually allow you to kill more missiles.

Re: Graphic bug makes game almost unplayable

I have quite a new graphic card (cant remember right now, but I can check it when I return home) and I have sometimes the problem that missiles/bombers become "invisible" (especially when several are in the air). Is this something to do with the graphic card or with the game? Not a huge pr...

Best PD?

So, Ive been experimenting a bit with PD (not crunching numbers, more like trial and error) and according to me the primary beams are (as should be) the best PD, But then I experimented a bit with fully developed turbo lasers and to me the addons on the lasers actually makes them better. So, which i...

Re: Area Coverage vs Close-In Point Defence

I would like to see PD going between x-y range and anti missiles only working on y-z range. That would achieve the desired effect of anti missiles being the long range shield and PD the last line of defence.

Torpedo vs Missile?

So, what is the deal here. I never go for the torpedo research because (according to me, correct me if Im wrong) these are actually worse than missiles. Why? Because of the swarm effect. Since torpedos at the max has 2 slots loaded in a ship and since they are slower then missiles, they almost allwa...

Re: refit vs new ship

Yes, this system really doesnt work. According to me, a planet refit should cost follow the following formula 10% of the hull cost+full cost of the added compenents =hammer and metal cost The above formula is about the working for refitting a normal vehicle today, as long as you dont do anything ext...

Re: Planet Production Processing Order

Sounds perfect, since I also have the same problem when building huge ships on one planet and maybe a long term Def Star base on a mining planet. Would be great even for us players if this could be avoided.

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

attachment I wonder how hard it would be to create a new panel to show pop demographics. It would look like the planet list panel except the progress bar would be removed and replaced with an array of pop icons. I guess you could access it by clicking on the food income indicator, nothing uses that...
