Re: Imperial Propaganda News Bulletin

The first Cycle of the Great War was a resounding success. Imperial legionaries conducted themselves admirably on the field of battle, unwavering as the formidable Auroran forces broke upon their lines. Total casualties on the Imperial side add up to some 500k Helions and 100k Minotaurs. In contrast...

Re: Imperial Propaganda News Bulletin

Terran Propaganda Broadcast III and Declaration of War: It is the 47th Cycle of the Imperium's foundation, and dark times are now upon us. Greater powers once again threaten our sovereignty, and we stand ready to answer the call to arms. It is said that history repeats itself: true words indeed as o...

Combat Simulator

Made a quick Excel thing to compare the space forces rating and SCI WU costs of two fleets in combat. Others may find this useful, to guesstimate the outcome of a particular engagement based on SCI WU costs (as suggested by WTV) rather than the space forces rating, which can be unreliable. Not exact...

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 ...
