Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

Thanks, that seems good! I haven't really reached those classes yet, so my Yoral game can continue.

Has the AI changed at all? It seems (even on Hard) very unwilling to attack undefended planets and outposts.

Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

An oddity - Yoral Heavy Cruisers are 17 coin/turn, while Battlecruisers are 18 coin/turn. This seems quite a minor difference (e.g. light cruisers are 11 coin/turn, and advanced destroyers 5 coin/turn).

I'd actually like to see the bigger ships have higher maintenance (especially for Yoral).

Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

Hurrah, I'm a backseat game designer!

I'll certainly take humans for a spin, and maybe Yoral to compare.

Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

Could humans just have lower maintenance costs for their ships? They look like rust buckets that don't get much time in dock anyway!

Re: Testing Economic Balance Changes

I'll take a look tomorrow evening! I do think that ship upkeep was negligible to the point of non-existent, and I like that refits are cheaper.

Good tips for manipulating the AI in general there!

Re: DLC rebalance mod

In the end there is just too much here for me! I also prefer the restrictions on techs - Vindicators for non-Tinkers was a bit jarring, for instance.

Re: DLC rebalance mod

I'm going to give this a play and see what I think. First glance suggests a lot of changes - more than a rebalance mod would suggest! Normally I'm against huge mods. But I'll give it a go because I do think weapon balance rather seriously needs a look at for me to keep enjoying the game.

Re: Humans on Hard Difficulty

Regarding terraforming, I only mention it because it's an absolute ton of research points that allows for a tiny amount of extra population - it's an absolute trap for humans in particular, who seem to benefit less than anyone for the same amount of research. I really don't think humans are in as ba...

Re: Suggest - Features and Improvements

After my last game, I encountered an enemy fielding force lances for the first time. Those weapons are maybe a bit much. They are probably better than every direct fire weapon up to and including plasma cannons, because they suffer from no range dissipation and have the 'extra range' modification to...

Re: Humans on Hard Difficulty

I'd like human terraforming expanded a touch. They seem to get almost nothing out of those techs.

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Force Lances say the penetrate, fully, Battle Shields and Force Fields. But in combat they clearly deplete the shield strength of both.

What is going on here? Is it just subsystem damage reducing the shield values somehow?

Re: Humans on Hard Difficulty

I'm engaged in a pretty epic Hard game as humans on a huge (88) star map. It's mostly turned into the two Haduir factions versus everyone else. I've been sure I was done for a number of times, but human assault transports - especially cloaked - are pretty wonderful at stealing both tech and Ashdar b...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

When humans salvage a battlecruiser, they get the (worthless) 'Battlecruiser' tech. Wouldn't it make more sense to get the tech equivalent, Dreadnoughts (unlocking Battleship)?

Re: So what is the counter to carriers and/or metric tonnes of missiles?

I think it would be of great use to add this somewhere into the game - either the tech or the ship weapon information.
