Re: Ship balance changes and jump beacons

George, there is something that I ask you to consider. Right now, a players jumpships can jump to any beacon area that the player controls. You could have two jump beacons on different sides of the galaxy and jump between them. If that is changed so that you can only jump from beacon area to beacon ...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

"Jumpships don't need a continuous chain, they can jump to any beacon you control from anywhere."

I wonder if it might be better if this were not the case.

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Im liking this new system. If an enemy that you are wary of decides to take a world near your territory, you need to retake that world before they can make it a sector capital and designate jumpship yards to act as beceacons. Basically, now you can't establish colonys on the other side of the galaxy...

Re: Jump beacons

In keeping with the idea of beacons, citidels could be used as disrupters so enemy jumpships move at starship speeds. Citidels could nullify enemy beacons. I understand that it could be difficult to introduce a whole new mechanic like building in open space, but you could use planets instead. Consid...

Re: POLL: Features to implement first next release?

I voted the messaging/ log system. If you have a large empire then dealing with messages is almost game breaking.

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Does anyone know when an update might occur? Are ghost empires still a problem in beta 2?

Re: My thoughts on the game

If this works and we can get George to do it for the ghost empires whose owners have moved on, that would clean up all three galaxies.

Re: My thoughts on the game

Screening ships would indeed help balance the game. Make it so that a fleet of eldritch is indeed powerful, but they get shredded by defenses. You have to include other types of ships to help provide cover. If the game could be balanced so that jumpships work much better paired with a fast starship ...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

If somebody takes your capital, and then you take it back, your empire can autoabdicate. I held bugzzzzz orginal capital, then I abdicated, which made bugzzzz orginal capital become independent. That messes with the game somehow, and may have caused bugzzzz to autoabdicate. If that is the case then ...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

I've abdicated. I took bugzzzzzz capital from Hand, then abdicated and caused bugzzzzzzz orginal capital to go back to independent to try to trigger the auto-abdicate bug on him. As much as I like this game the no capital bug and the ghost empires are a problem. A few more Ontarion incidents and thi...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

If your consumer worlds are at 6 the don't produce luxeries. They don't require them but also can't produce them for other plantets. To build all the hab structures you generally have to be at level 8.

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

If whoever is playing Bugzzzz comes into this thread, make sure you give a recap of your attack. I still don't know what the hell happened to my fleet. I can only assume you hit every sector capital at once and then plowed thru every one of my jumpyards in the span of 3 hours. As for my counterattac...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

I assume that Bugzzzz can no longer get messages because he got 2 capitals and got caught up in the bug.
In any case, shall we call a truce or are we going for total destruction here?

Re: Sudden uncontrollable civil wars?

it sounds like you had a trillium shortage that spiraled out of control. As you develop your sectors, you can have problems as they mature, for example. A. You set up a new sector capital with a hub and a foundation. You connect up all your worlds and have plenty of resources. BUT, as you raise the ...
