Re: Era IV Galactic Discussion Board

Welcome, wpzoka! I assume you're a new player? If so, there are some excellent guides here for the aspiring galactic emperor/empress. Era 4 also hasn't officially "begun", the Alpha game which is online now is to test out any new mechanics/balance changes before they're officially implemented. There...

Re: Era 4 Alpha

Made a quick survey here to confirm if users wanted an increase to starship speeds, and if so, by how much. Were there other stat changes to units that were being suggested? We can make a poll for each of them also, easy to see what the majority of other users think as they can quickly click a butto...

Poll: New speed for starships?

Created a poll for players to vote on increasing starship speed (or not)

Re: Era 4 Alpha

I think most regulars agreed in page 2 of this thread that starships should have lightly increased speeds to 1 LY/min. That should also "solve" the bug of very slow fleets (i.e. starships at 0.1 LY/min) being able to be attacked without retaliation if they are a few watches away from arriving at a w...

Re: Era 4 Alpha

Should we push the suggested unit stats changes to the Core Library?

There are few players on the Alpha test, AdmiralZo is a bit north of my position (New Aelion) and some other unknown player with a pretty well-established cluster to the east (Thuhomur Wuchaiju).

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

It's fine IMO. Speaking from experience when I was the "newbie", I didn't know what any of the buttons did, just clicked randomly and found out. A tutorial of sorts would really help more than an "advanced start" in that regard. In fact, giving 2-3 colonies straight off the bat might make things eve...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Ah yes, the Imperium's signature strategy used to crush its enemies many times over. Definitely an exploit. This will be fixed, as opportunity fire will update the "best" target for each wing once every few ticks - i.e. whichever enemy wing is closest. I think that issue had an Era 4 tag on Ministry...

Re: Strategic Combat: Suggestions for Era 4

These are all great ideas. * Introduce a new structure for defenders. E.g., a structure called "fortification" or something, which gives a bonus to defending ground troops (or something). A good change, or alternatively an easier solution is to make different ground unit types: a low cost "defense l...

Re: Era 4 Alpha

Nice. I'm testing on the Alpha now as Commonwealth of Man, capital name Unity - and the galactic map indicates I'm somewhere to the far west. WTV that looks horrendous. Did you spawn in a nebula? Must be due to the new nebula changes, either that or that beige color is the new light nebula color? Tr...

Re: General Noob Questions&Welcome Thread

Can this be stickied? Or perhaps reposted to the bottom of the Announcement. The people on the Era 3 map should probably be sent an in-game message or something that an Era 4 map is coming up in a few weeks, else it's going to be a very lonely galaxy. If they want to restart then or something. Waywa...

Re: Era 4 unit changes

Imperator, if high-tech starship speeds are 2x low-tech speeds while keeping other stuff constant the low-tech ships will be basically garbage. I suggested 1 ly/min for starships and 2 ly/min for ramjets, regardless of tech level. The low-tech Defiance and high-tech Gorgos will have the same FTL sp...

What do people think about this proposal as a mechanic for implementing different empire colors?

Re: Era 4 unit changes

Yes. Minotaur = good, Sirius = bad. The Imperium had a fleet of 25M Minotaurs at the time of its abdication, and I used them almost exclusively in every Era 3 conflict up till then (about 4-5 conflicts all up, maybe more what with my warmongering and all) I think gunships might be the new meta from ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Timer for redesignating worlds: Add a 5-10 minute counter for designating important worlds like SCs and jumpbeacons to some other thing - as we all know players redeginate these during war to stop the enemy getting a strategic advantage. Yes, I forgot to add the balance between low/high-tech units. ...
