The only feedback I had was that my lt. cruiser suddenly "disappeared" from screen and when I clicked on the escort cruiser from the Orthacs which was in same system it was damaged. I guess this is a bug.
enpi wrote:3. Good that we can now choose between 3 different galaxy sizes. Maybe you could introduce a text field were I can enter the no. of systems i want manually instead of clicking the system button 50 times up.
enpi wrote:4. There need to be a visual feedback which planets I can reach when I click on a ship. (maybe a semitransparent sphere or so?) Additionally I strongly suggest that you introduce a tool where I can premeasure the distance between any 2 planets. MOO2 had such a similar tool in one of its patches which you could use if you press f10 or f12.
enpi wrote:5. I have no idea which planets are good for my race and which not. Maybe I am dumb but I didnt find any infos about this topic anywhere. The game dont give me any data about this. the only info I get is uninteresting and irrelevant for playing like Orbital period, climate zones, solar days and something called "debug" (what ever this is) I dont even know if the type or size of a planet influences the slots I have for my factories or if it influences the population cap or not.
So is it better to settle barren worlds or is it better to settle ice worlds? Maybe only earthlike worlds, I dont know. The game dont tell me, there is no wiki or even some manual about this topic. Maybe you hide some information in the description of the race but its tediuos not openly knowing the data because usually I am not that interested in the text fluff and I read it only when I have time. I would suggest that you include either accurate data about planet colonization priority for each race or that you make a color coded system which gives the player some feedback which planets are good for his race and which planets are a priority for the AI enemy to colonize. That lack of data is one the 2 bigger problems in your game IMO (the other one is the presentation of your tech tree) because it does not promote strategic planning by the player. (strategic planning I am sure is where the fun for most gamers is in 4x games)
enpi wrote: I would also STRONGLY suggest to fix your technology text by STRICTLY seperating fluff and crunch. (eg description text what the tech represents in the game world and hard game data like damage etc.) Only narrative roleplaying games do this nowadays. In other games its a no go to mix those two.
For example in Laser tech you write in the same description: Deals 1-10 damage (crunch). A basic weapon .... (yadda yadda fluff which I really dont want to read but have to read because maybe you hide some info in it. I find this boring. When you want to write scifi/technobabble fluff thats ok but please make it seperate from game crunch data so that you dont FORCE the player to read it in order to get hidden crunch data out of it)

No prob. Do you have an email adress where I can send the file?
enpi wrote:ok, I just sent to your email. I had luck, because I got a HD crash yesterday but somehow I could save the file.

I have not yet seen two instances of the same race in a single game. Other games (SOTS and Distant Worlds come to mind) have a truly 'random' distribution of enemy empires, which in practice usually means that you will end up surrounded with three empires of the same race. Very immersion breaking for me. I would usually have to manually set enemy empires in these games to make sure it doesn't happen.
