General Noob Questions&Welcome Thread

So with the Era 4 announcement (thanks George!) I see about 5 new players on the Era 3 map. WatchTV's guide is linked in the announcement but the Era 3 general discussion thread has become a bit bogged down with Era 4 balance discussion so I thought I'd make this thread for anyone just dipping their...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Ducking out of the Brawl at the End of the Era? Fah! Fah I say! I had a whole propaganda thing going that I was going to stick with the all in starship total defense doctrine, but really I've been planning to switch to all in Helion production tomorrow night. My estimates put me at between 43 and 64...

From the Ancient Days of Era 2: Wayward Device's Diplomacy Guide

Reposting from the depths of Watch TV's Anacreon Era 2 Gameplay Guide and FAQ at Imperator's request. I wrote this as an Ancreon diplomacy guide a little over 700 cycles ago (that's over 2 years in meatspace time) but in the rereading it holds just as true today as it was then. Not even considering ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

I can definitely talk about starship balance. Gunships are in a good place right now, I don't think any changes are needed there. There is a strong argument that Era 3 has been the Age of the Gunship, but I'd say it was more the Age of the Six Way Rock Paper Scissors, with a lot of people (especiall...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Awesome, thanks George! We'd all been resigned to Era 4 being at least 6 months to a year away, this is very exciting news. I think we've covered most of the bugs/things we'd really like to see with the UI already in this thread. With nebulas, the only thing we haven't really covered is exogalactic ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Great stuff Imperator. I don't know if you've ordered them by priority but if you have then I certainly agree that the interface and bugfixes ones are the most important. Your list is pretty comprehensive but I'll add a few of my own: Interface - Trade route templates. Right now, adding a CGA world ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

The idea came to me about 6 months ago, but I hadn't really quite figured out how to implement it fully in a battle scenario. But there you go. That is how you do it. Also, I believe that is what the Citadel's and some of the planetary forces are supposed to protect against. However, as I suspected...

Re: Formal Decrelations

Hear the words of the Auroran Hegemony: The Hegemony denounces the Imperium. The Imperium does not keep its word. Since its founding 41 cycles ago, the Hegemony has done nothing but offer friendship to the Imperium. The Hegemony went so far as to seal this with a non-aggression treaty to last until ...

Re: A guide to trade cluster construction for the civilized emperor

It seems you can even set import percentages to be MORE than 100%, to create a stockpile on the hub for emergencies in case some other player comes along and poaches resource worlds. I'm testing this out now, setting the Centauri hub to import 200% of trillum from 5 worlds - 3 abundant, 2 major. Wh...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Hmm, and here I was thinking that Armored Infantry were the most cost effective ground forces. I've never tried a full infantry producing cluster, only Armored Infantry or Exotroops. It should also be even easier than Armored Infantry in extremely resource poor regions.

Re: A guide to trade cluster construction for the civilized emperor

I've just read through this in full (it's excellent of course) but do you not use the 100% on all import method? I've always found that leaving the %s as they are/trying to match them to world production causes all kinds inefficiencies, especially with things like jumpfacs that need to import multip...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

What am I doing wrong Grand Emperors? Looks like Imperator already covered the economy side pretty well before I could finish my drunken late night draft, but I'll have a go at explaining the Minotaur thing. So, with your Minotaur fleet, I can't really say for sure but Victories, although a lowtech...
