Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

This is extremely weird. I have a map screenshot from cycle 4024 of the current map that clearly shows the original Mesophon worlds (they are all the ones without bubbles as theirs was the only cap I hadn't found at the time). They have clearly expanded. Take a look: http://i.imgur.com/98lmbtX.jpg M...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

There are a few promising little empires starting out right now. I worry for Great Slothia though. The Wolf Raiders right next to them are already making Eldritchs and the sloths haven't even designated the worlds they've taken. The APD is looking promising in the little hidden away nebula pocket ne...

Re: My thoughts on the game

I really want to try this now. I agree about the infantry issue but you could go 1 Law&Order cap 1 jumpyard for your pirate base and still defend it with bought cyclops. If you had the imperial guards from Law&Order you could gain a lot of ships taking over people's under-defended caps. The more I t...

Re: My thoughts on the game

Another option would be for stockpiles to attract pirates, NPC fleets that would travel around the galaxy and descend on unprotected worlds to haul off or destroy stockpiles without actually conquering the planet. How about allowing raiding as a hostile action? So if you beat the space forces/groun...

An analysis of the major powers, Cycle 4149 UFW Ministry of Information Autumn Leaves Archive As of Cycle 4149 the galaxy is populated by a group of empires with radically different ideologies and goals. As the dust settles on the most recent round of conflicts in the Southern Migration Wars now is ...

This is glorious. The tyranny of having to remember a list oaf planetary naming conventions and tediously type them out is over. I will now claim planets with the immortal ⚛.

Re: My solution for fixing ship balance issues

This is assuming the invincible eldritch ball gets addressed, right now the combat environment pretty much favors all eldritches all the time. You can stop a fleet of 1 million Eldritch with 30,000 Gorgos. The casualties will be horrendous on both sides but the Gorgos will win. The Eldritch death b...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

I don't like it. It slows down your early development if you want to rush to Eldritch, which you should if you know how because it makes early game expansion so much easier. I have had a systemic TL collapse when my main cluster foundation rebelled after I neglected the Republic of Reason for about ...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Thanks for all the stats and analysis Watch TV. It's been great to see all the discussion, even if Pokemon Go has taken all of the free time I need to post excessively long rants about Muh Spess Emprr up until today. Your guides make me want to make a dedicated Advanced Economic guide and break down...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

I actually think dynamic nebular clouds would be a pretty nice effect. I do recall seeing in beta I a few patches of purple nebula and nebular worlds that can be designated as starship factories but the ships produced there can't move. I use chrome and can't scroll around the galaxy smoothly. Its a...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

The Autocracy warned you fools about the insidious dangers of living in gas clouds and you called us mad. Now the corruption is spreading! Pretend scifi nebula racism aside, this is a weird bug and it's not just in your corner of the galaxy. Luckily I've been taking screenshots almost every day, eve...

Re: The Autocracy of Order Propaganda-News Bulletin

Glad you enjoyed it. It's been fun so far to play an authoritarian empire that's racist to people who don't use trade clusters. And which holds perfectly justified views about nebular dwelling yokels. Did you know that people who live in nebulae have never even seen a Gorgos? Poor backwards savages....

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Hey WatchTV! I should have known it was you, that lone cluster was too slick and I already knew where the Human Imperium was. You came way closer to winning than you know in a couple of ways. When I logged in to check on my empire after work I at first freaked out a little bit - I'd left almost all ...
