Re: STARGAZER BULLETIN

Nova, if you're feeling ambitious: I don't think anyone's ever tested infantry attrition rates. I don't think attrition rates are known for most resources. We know hexacarbide and durable goods have lower attrition than other resources but beyond that I think it's kind of murky. It's tricky to quan...

Re: STARGAZER BULLETIN

I've nearly completed the more critical nebular tests I wanted to do. The other tests will take less than a week. Any suggestions on what else to test or what to do with this empire when I've finished? I could test combat with someone if they wanted, setup planets with specific defenses, etc.

Re: STARGAZER BULLETIN

Beta Testing (DO NOT DESTROY) is making excellent progress in their nebular testing program. I appreciate the lack of aggression while the testing is ongoing. Soon RoR will be little more than ... I mean, we will have all the data required. A few issues I noticed, that I want to write down before I ...

Re: Idea: Succession Game

I think it might work best if we started when the new beta II game does. The current beta galaxy is pretty lively right now and I think all of us who are active and interested in this have vested interests there already. I'm still happy to start up in the current beta game if everybody is for that,...

Re: Idea: Succession Game

I'd potentially be up for this. I wonder if more than one person can be logged in and trying to issue orders for the same empire?

Re: Poll: New Beta II Game?

I support a new beta, but at a minimum: [snip] I think asking for fixes may be more time than George has given his other commitments. Alternatively, does anyone know if the source code can be downloaded? Maybe one of us can dig through it and help George fix it. For instance, by identifying specifi...

Any updates on the current state in Beta? Any galactic maps to share?

Poll: New Beta II Game?

... we could create a new Beta II game (same features, just a different random layout). This poll is to determine support for starting a new Beta II game as described by George (a Beta Beta of sorts). If George finds enough support for a Beta II game, then he can post in this thread and the start d...

Re: STARGAZER BULLETIN

I just had a new idea: What if you couldn't attack anyone with less than 75% your total actions where an action is equal to a command given in game (or weighted actions - some actions are more important than others). This way rich retired programmers that play 18/24 hrs per day can't squash the poor...

Re: STARGAZER BULLETIN

I would guess that what you in combat on the screen mirrors the actual mechanic of combat. That is to say, wings should definitely be curved in future iterations. I'd also like to see some ability to scroll through all the wings. Currently, you can only see the top few - at least for me - at least w...

Re: STARGAZER BULLETIN

You could stress test it with the help of another couple big empires. Put together 3 gigantic mixed fleets and throw them all into one system at the same time. Record how the game performs and what if anything breaks.

Re: THE BARRICADES PACT

I'm still don't see how this alliance is any different from any other group of players trying to take over the galaxy. It certainly hasn't stop its members from killing off other players using 1st strikes (including weaker opponents). Why not dissolve the alliance and have one final gigantic galacti...
