Re: Request for help from Era 3 players

I was finally able to fully explore and get a complete map, so I don't need anybody to contribute anymore.

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 Citadels seem pretty weak, especially since it requires the player to be present in order to do anything, and even...

Re: Era 3 feedback

The Citadel Possible fixes: 1) High SPLASH DAMAGE from debris, those ships are traveling at +light speed, I feel like a missile blowing up a ship in front of the fleet would be slightly detrimental to the fleet as a whole. Right now each jumpmissile actually generates I think 16 separate projectile...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Yeah I was in a similar situation to you g2, bugzzzzz attacked my old empire but the underlying purpose was to take a jumpyard that was in range of poorly-defended Imperium capitals. The social order penalties for attacking small empires won't deter an aggressive major power from doing this sort of ...

Request for help from Era 3 players

I am working on a mysterious secret project that I hope will make strategic planning easier for all players, but I need access to a complete galactic map and I don't currently have an account with a fully-explored galaxy. If you are a player in Era 3 and have fully explored the galaxy, could you fol...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I don't like the idea of buffs for inactivity AND maluses for attacking dormant players, since: it incentivizes a peculiar strategy where you optimize your economy to churn out low-attrition units in order to go on the offensive only every so often once your output plateaus, while remaining inactive...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

If gunships and jumpcruisers are the primary attackers right now, shouldn't jumpmissiles be a viable defense?

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Can anyone comment on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of starfrigates in Era 3? Especially against jumpcruisers? They were the ultimate killer defensive death machines in Beta I/II until the explorer decoy expoit became well known. They got a hard nerf in era 3 (I did push for them to not l...

Mesophon units idea

This post is inspired by a mechanic in the strategy game Crusader Kings II. Crusader Kings II allows players to hire mercenary bands for in-game currency in order to fight their wars. These units replenish themselves and have interesting unit composition but have both a purchase cost and a continuou...

Re: Pirates of Jakarta

I agree that "popping" fleets was a fun mechanic, and I like the idea of tying it to abdicated or defeated empires' worlds rather than having it be random. A few further thoughts: Since there would be no fleets to pop at game start (since nobody has abdicated or been defeated yet), this would not al...

Re: Optimal tech level for efficient empire building

I believe that the best way to compare planetary efficiency at different TLs would be WU efficiency. This is the total WU generated by the planet, divided by the labor cost of all consumer goods consumed by the population plus the labor cost of the trillum used to produce those consumer goods. The W...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I've had some thoughts about war recently and I'd like to know what other people think. Sector capitals Free redesignation of sector capitals results in some undesirable outcomes: 1. If a sector capital is taken in war, typically several planets will defect with it. If player A and player B are at ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

The rest of the galaxy should read that as "Talegin-Montressor Diarchy set up a jumpyard projecting force into the territory around Carpathia's sector capital, then savagely attacked Carpathia for no reason after Carpathia requested gunship passage in order to altruistically evict foreign invaders t...
