Has there been a discussion on friendly fire mechanics?

First of all https://www.twitch.tv/videos/211273984 and please excuse the quality It's possible to do this for all stations. You need to snipe off the sentries for Ares communes and shipyards but that's way easier than taking on all the guards, to say nothing of reinforcements. Even for stations tha...

Re: Era 3 feedback

In this era planetary defenses got buffed, but it's actually HARDER to defend worlds, mainly because ships got stronger too. Undines now have 20 range, which means cannon-type defenses can't even touch them. They fall to hypersonics, but worlds defended entirely by those can't fight back against eld...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Well, what you failed to mentioned is that Imperium decided to take a swing at me too. In fact, I think bugz never had me as the primary target, feels like he just took a detour at my capital on his way to attack the Republic of Reason. Shame my main capital didn't spawn in the nebula and got taken ...

Re: Optimal tech level for efficient empire building

My impression is that tech level is dependent on geography. Raising the TL of CGAs gets more output but also burns more trillum. So it's not practical to raise every world to TL 10 unless there is sufficient trillum density. I find the most compelling reason for raising TLs to be habitation structur...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Defection of any kind should definitely not be a mechanic. The advantage of attacking first is large enough as it is that there doesn't need to be any extra bonuses. Attacking AFK players is the best way to ensure victory and there certainly aren't any rules or even informal agreements that prevent ...

Re: Saverun, Anybody?

Saved in the current system, next one is Sanctuary. We're carrying around a lot of stuff. I sold the damaged weapons to the tinker in the previous system and stashed the rest in the destroyed penitent sanctum. Uninstalled ballista and PM6 for an omnidirectional particle cannon and the mark 3 we're c...

Re: Saverun, Anybody?

Solar armor this early on, that comes in very handy. Finished the third system. Ran into a repentant class gunship and nearly died, wtf? Other than that just killed and looted stuff. Any reason we're carrying around a bunch of damaged weapons? https://www.dropbox.com/s/41jjxwesqvt1e5c/Transcendence_...

Re: Saverun, Anybody?

So when is this thing going to get started? As for rules, I think there's no need to be too restrictive. I assume that we are trying to win in a cooperative effort, so each player shouldn't intentionally sabotage the successor? If someone wants to fly all the way to Heretic in one go I'm fine with t...

Re: Targeting system changes

Why were the targeting changes necessary in the first place? I think the system was fine the way it was, and this is definitely a case of "if it's not broken, don't fix it". IMO "t" for reds and "f" for greens is good enough for all the targeting needs I can think of. When it comes to green dots, "f...

Re: My thoughts on the game

Wow, that's such a great idea
Put that capital in the nebula and we get the Pirates of Jakarta scenario
I'd do it but I'm stuck with a ghost empire that has no planets and hence cannot abdicate

Re: Solar items increase reactor efficiency instead of refue

I am very much against nerfing solar armor. If we liken the fuel mechanic in Transcendence to the food consumption of other roguelikes, the system we have is a lot harsher, in that: The consumption rate is very high Consumption increases as the player equips better items Performing actions (e.g. att...
