Updated front page. Latest map available courtesy of Wayward Device. The Imperium recognises and upholds a new alliance with the noble peoples of Windsor.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I've discussed fleet capture and fleet transfer in various bug reports dating back to 2016. I think fleet capture is a serious defect in the current combat model, because it makes it paradoxically risky to use fleets to actively defend your planets during an enemy invasion. IIRC, Bug King mentioned...

Re: Imperial Propaganda News Bulletin

This Imperium utterly renounces any and all treaties, pacts, alliances, guarantees of independence and offers of protection extended to the rogue nation Alliance of Free Kingdoms. We have shown mercy to these miscreants in the past, after they initiated conflict by invading our worlds. Instead of de...

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? Huh. Learn something new every day. I've honestly just discovered this was possible. Thanks... I actually thought the percentages had to add up to 100% and was sitting around with a calc...

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

I think that it is also worth discussing planet placement relative to other players: If your neighbors are well-established, try to keep your capitals and hubs outside their maximum achievable jumpship range. Remember that any planet they control within range of a capital can become a jumpbeacon in...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Oh, yes I do suppose these work units might be a better metric to test which units perform best. We were going with matching the space forces rating of the two fleets in the first test (from memory it was around 868k vs 1M), and seeing how the Minotaur/Helion combo performed so well then doubled the...

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

Step 9: Fixing overproduction. Click on each of the worlds in the cluster individually. Go to their "Production" tab: Capture.PNG In this example, hexacarbide is being vastly overproduced by almost 1000 units per minute, leading to a surplus stockpile of 35 million. You're free to redesignate this ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I thought up another interesting strategy which hasn't been tested extensively, but could feasibly work. As some might know, invading a world causes all surviving defending ships in orbit to flip over to the attackers' side in the minute after the invasion is complete. Usually we don't see this in a...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Is uplifting your Goods worlds up past Bio-tech worth it? Is taking Trillum and Hexacarbide worlds past Fusion worth the luxuries hit? I conducted an experiment a while back that compared the production bonus against the increased foods/goods/luxuries consumption of worlds at various TLs. You can d...
