Re: Please halve the output on science stations

The science station output on ships is kind of weak, halving it across the board will still leave stations as the only viable place for them. I kind of think they should be made into a turret slot item and balanced around that. Kill the overpowered space station / shipyard science orbital problem, w...

Re: Farming / Food Changes

I think the best way to handle this is just to build colony ships as empty by default. When the ship actually finishes building, have it load one unit of pop, of the same race it would have selected to contain under the old system, automatically. If it is unable to do so for any reason, such as lack...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Shipyards don't really help this much, the main issue is actually the improved solar panels tech advance. At that point, you can house 2 science labs (no need for a power plant) for a + 21 research orbital that only costs 254 hammers and 30 metal. Then when you get heavy hulls, and can put 2 in orb...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Orbital science stations seem to be too good compared to planetbound research. Build r17066 Science stations give research based on how many system points are in the slot they sit in. A basic space station has a 40 and a 20 point system slot. Put power in the 20, a science station in the 40, and yo...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

While tabbed out of the game you can hear UI sound effects being triggered by the mouse moving over where elements would be if the game was the topmost/focused window. Build R17066 Fire up the game, windowed or fullscreen both will do this but windowed is easier. Place it in the center, note where ...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

Options menu covers up the logo text and looks bad as a result Build R17066 Two pictures here, 1920x1200 with 25% scaling and no scaling. Scaled is worse, but they both look pretty bad due to the game's logo being partially covered with text and/or ui elements overlapping it. Maybe reduce the heigh...

Re: Report - Current Bugs and Issues

What screen resolution are you running at? That only happens on very small window sizes. Normal 1920x1080 but I play in windowed mode, the window is nearly covering the whole screen: Are you running windows 10? Are you using the user interface scaling options? I noticed recently that when I turned ...
