Re: Restart happening?

In era 2, Mesophon wouldn't take delivery of fleets containing warships unless there were also transports present. And then they'd only pay for the transports.

Re: Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

I agree the prices need to be changed. Especially since they have no worlds anywhere near my new empire. And why do they have no worlds? Because they were conquered long ago? In the long run Mesophon needs a lot of work to make them viable. They need to be better able to defend themselves. Resources...

Re: My thoughts on the game

A few more ideas that have not so much impact on gameplay but that I still consider would be nice to have: * Planets could keep track of the name their previous owner gave them, for easier restoration of their original name. Yeah, that's been one of the most annoying chores after the excitement yest...

Re: Downloading output of $Anacreon.objList

I experimented a bit and ran into a few gotchas when trying to access the $Anacreon.objList programatically based on the browser: Chrome displays it as more nested than it is, as a workaround. There are so many entries in the array and Chrome gives an arrow that you click to expand each entry onto i...

Regarding game balance

I believe the ability of jumpships to make sudden deep strikes into enemy territory and then retreat back to a well-defended citadel is bad for the game. I completely understand the appeal of being a predator: scouting out your target, assembling your forces, watching for the perfect opening with e...

My thoughts on the game

The game site seemed to be down for at least 7 hours today and so instead of managing my empire I had time to write down some ideas that have been going through my head recently. I've been playing for just about a month, as the Seekers of Knowledge, in case you didn't know. When I started I could on...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Well there's a bugzzzz fleet of 600K gorgos ships, still around and en-route on a 22 cycle voyage from the human imperium's ex-capital to the northeast of the galaxy. I don't think that's the surprise but it will certainly give a shock to anyone whose territory it passes through.

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Hello from the Seekers of Knowledge. My two week old empire seems to have entered galactic politics at a particularly interesting time. That old Chinese curse definitely applies! University board meetings have been lively too. Dean Clausewitz is always arguing with Dean Tzu about whether to invest i...
