Fighters are due for a big overhaul, and missiles (and frankly all weapons) will receive multiple balance passes before we're done.

I know that it will be probably pain in the ass to improve this manually but it feel as a miss not having manual(and costing something) upgrades. Especially with units as the new ones cost more but the old ones get promoted for free.

Sarissofoi wrote:There is also diplomacy matter. Do plan to implement it more as a MoO I where there could be skirmishes or limited/cold war state where AI try to probe or take weak colonies without declaring war and small scale conflict is possible or are you gonna go the Civ route where even small hostilities turn into total war? I ask because it would make more sense(and better gameplay) to go MoO route - so shooting down enemy scout over my home world would not start total war(sure sometimes it could as some race could just looking for a fight but I feel MoO diplomacy was clearly superior in this aspect. Recently I replayed old MoO and have many amusing situations where AI accuse me(rightly) on many things9stealing tech or destroying their fleets) but was to afraid to declare war as I was much more stronger or they were busy somewhere else. Relations suffer though.

NullVoid wrote:With the increased metal costs for shipbuilding, I've been having build a lot of mining colonies by mid-game for ships and tanks and orbitals. Can we get a list of known planets we could sort by mineral abundance? Ideally, It would be closer to MoO2's planets list, with filters and all, but just being able to see planet statistics in a single screen would already be incredibly helpful.

The current mechanic of a tiny fraction of metal deduction each turn has no real advantage, just more math and additionally sometimes annoying building delay alerts which are cumbersome to manage.
Arioch wrote:If you want to avoid shortfall delays then you can simply choose not to start production on an item until you have enough metal to complete it. Forcing this even when you have plenty of per-turn metal income to cover the production would force significant and unnecessary delays.

Your progress on ship production is saved even if you switch to another production target; in the case of metal shortage you can switch to Research or another production target and then switch back to your ship production job without losing progress on it. Pausing construction would be wasteful.
