Re: Restart happening?

The current version running on the server, era3, is a branch off of master (which has the old ship and defense values). My understanding of Github is rudimentary- is it possible to create a branch off of a branch and then request a pull to the era3 branch? Everything suggested is library values exce...

Re: Restart happening?

I believe he asked for a list of final minor revisions (these are mostly tweaks to library values).

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

How do people feel about all players starting with like 100,000 AEs and letting T&E empires build infantry on capitals by adding the Militia Base structure or letting the starport primary structure build infantry? I think it would be a major improvement until T&E can be totally revised, so that new ...

Re: Restart happening?

 I’ll poke him after Thursday’s stream. I might not play Anacreon myself, but I can imagine that a game where the fixed major bugs never played a role in galactic development at all would be a nice thing to have. Make sure that he sees the list of requested minor tweaks compiled by Imperator and ad...

Re: Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

You're definitely right about people reselling ships to Mesophon- Evil Space Pirates used that strategy- although in practice it's difficult to defend everything. Resources bought by Mesophon do not disappear except to attrition; if you conquer a Mesophon world you will sometimes find a huge heap of...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

The game engine should be flexible enough to accommodate different map sizes, which means IMO that the limits should be a function of map size and possibly total planet count (and explicitly stated each game). I have a ticket about it . Also consider that if there were more active players or things ...

Re: Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

Starxplor posted a console command for bulk purchasing although I haven't tried it.

Code: Select all

 "POST /api/buyItem HTTP/1.1"
I'm not totally sure how to phrase it.

Re: Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

Trader empire ship prices are not in the era3 core library and are based on era2 power values that aren't found anywhere in the era3 library, so either they are hard-coded or the game is looking in the wrong library when calculating Mesophon prices. My guess is that they got determined by hand at so...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

Mesophon ship prices also need to be tweaked, since they are based on Era 2 power values rather than supply-chain-inclusive WU cost. Mesophon has incredible bargains on low-tech ships, which can be purchased for less than their build cost. This wasn't noticed in Era 2 since the only low-tech ships f...

Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

Introduction: Mesophon sales costs need a tweak In Era 3 it's now possible to buy all ship classes from Mesophon. My personal impression is that you would be insane to build ships yourself given how cheaply Mesophon sells some of them, especially because ship costs are based on a deprecated metric ...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

I would definitely like to see a new map. Law and Order has secessionAdj: { value:0.1 op:factor } in its CoreLibrary files, which I interpret as a base 90% reduction in secession risk that is secondarily supplemented by the secession risk reduction that imperial guards provided. I discussed secessio...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

I support a 50% increase in attack damage for low tech starfrigates (Manta, Defiance) since their WU costs are quite close to their high-tech counterparts. High and low tech starcruisers can remain as is despite having similar WU ratios- the TL 10 worlds that build the high tech starcruisers are cha...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

Based on what has recently become known about the combat system, I would expect units with AoE to be the most appropriate counter to gunships since gunships pack more units/cell than other designations. As I understand it, each pixel in a wing stands for 16 gunships, which would be expected to each ...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

Sorry- I was referring to George's post in what's now the Era 2 reference thread.

Increasing armor on Jumpcruisers will reduce Starfrigate effectiveness, so that's not great. Right now they don't have a high kill % per combat round as their relative damage has been reduced a lot.
