Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Oh, don't worry... I'm sure 03 will give the Hegemony's starships a good battering with the entire Imperial military having been transferred to their control. In fact, I'm expecting it. Look at what they did with 1M Minotaurs last time, now they have 20M :lol: Also, before I abdicated I checked and ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

What about a button below "Send Msg" in the Capital -> Empire tab titled "Declare War"? This will set the empire's state and color to hostile correspondingly, and possibly also notify the target player than Empire X has declared war on them. For empires in a "war" state, replace that button with one...

Updated to reflect that I have migrated a lot of the info to the Kronosaur wiki. When Project Glacier is completed, I will migrate it to Ministry.
What is Project Glacier?

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I've abdicated. In light of the approaching Era 4, I don't see much point in continuing to maintain a 1000 world Imperium, and there are other games I'd like to spend my free time on :mrgreen: That said: the whole 50 million strong Grand Imperial Fleet has been transferred to the Bug King's 03 empir...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

I have revised my personal master list for Era 3.9 and made it easier to read. Let me know if there are any bugs that I overlooked. Excellent list, I think it sums up everything quite nicely. With the different empire colors, if we had a separate color for "neutral" empires: yellow? (neutral meanin...

Re: Anacreon Source

As the Era 4 update is approaching, I thought it might be useful to peek at the source to see how stuff is implemented and identify room for improvement/new features/bugfixes etc. I've just had a quick skim through, as an interesting example we can see how map colors are currently implemented in thi...

Anacreon Source

Out of curiosity, inspecting the Anacreon webpage: it appears that a lot of the Anacreon base functionality, barring the Core Library on Github, is implemented in Javascript files which can just be downloaded straight from the browser. I've attached them as a zip file here for others to peruse at th...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

If high-tech defenses are ineffective, that is a separate issue which should be addressed rather than increasing halfLife across the board. High tech defenses are indeed ineffective: despite their longer half-lives they are much more expensive to build, still resulting in lower numbers overall. A m...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

It is with great pride that the Empire of Sol announces our arrival as an independent and autonomous people. The 16-period old Empire of Sol somehow spawned right in the middle of Imperium territory, after which it proceeded to capture undefended production worlds left and right to form a minature ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

As I see it: without considering bugs, the most important balance issues to address at present are: 1. Planetary defenses still aren't good at actually defending planets! The meager defensive bonus they provide cannot justify dedicating 5-10% labor towards their construction. Even after the Era 3 Re...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Yes, IMO. Capital ramjets have always been faster than capital starships. Not sure about "gunship speed" exactly, that would make capital ships both fast and powerful, even if they are confined to a nebula. Plus, if the bug/exploit allowing purchasing and using ramjets in clearspace isn't addressed,...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Well, looks like some others agree starships should have increased speed to 1LY. I feared it would have been quite the controversial change, powerful as they are already. I think their ability to form doomstacks is offset somewhat by citadels, which if buffed will present a credible threat to slow m...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Aside from that, I just thought of another minor suggestion as I got to the end of this post. How would people feel about the ability to bombard a planet to kill population or to blockade its trade route? As it stands, we have two hostile acts: attack everything in orbit and attack everything in or...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Oh, excellent news! Nebula overhaul sounds great, that should hopefully fix the current bugs with ramjets being unable to path etc. With regard to fleets being able to path outside the map: It would be even easier to just put a single rift zone polygon around the entire galactic periphery, just outs...

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

Yes, if some production worlds are both importing and exporting it generally means there is a shortfall somewhere in the network. Trade networks won't be 100% efficient because some worlds will overproduce and others will underproduce. The method outlined in the first post can actually be improved: ...
