Re: Era 3 Bug: Ramjet fleets can't path in nebulae?

I'm fairly certain it is not normal for the rift zone, turned dark nebula, to be passed THROUGH from one place to the next, as though the the rift zone no longer is there. But these were jumpships not ramjets, I don't have any to try it with.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Only change I see cristaline federation has helios exlporers orbiting my HW. Can't find any reference in FAQ to this event. Thanks This is the attrition, all manufac...

Re: Era 3 Bug: Ramjet fleets can't path in nebulae?

This doesn't have much to do with Ramjets, but in respect to the dark nebula code maybe thinking it is a rift zone there are patches of rift zone that have been taken over by dark nebula, a fleet may pass through the rift zone normally in this case. Perhaps they are related.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Ah, I was referring more to your buildup of Citadels. You could effectively shoot down every single ship as soon as it left the jumpyard, but the Federation could not. Also, if you chose, you could restrict maneuvers to and from his core with the amount of Citadels. That was the blockade part. Hmm ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

incident [/quote] I had no intention of expanding into that center area. Expansion requires SC's and I have no SC in that area. As far as expansion elsewhere in the south, that is my domain to worry about. You have two or three, depending on how you want to look at it, thriving empires in your regi...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Thanks for the updated map, one other thought on spawning next to a large empire all the worlds get taken before a new player can get established. Just a thought It is a good thought and actually a strong strategy, especially in when starting out. If the other player is forced to abdicate because t...

Re: Fleet orders redux

This sounds like something that could be an in-game like a Post Industrial gets an A.I. build option at the Capital. Each SC after gets to research it if that SC is at Post Industrial also. This A.I. allows one "General/Hero/A.I. computer" per Sector that can be attached to whatever unit with any su...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I've always been a huge fan of those spread sheets, Watch TV and various others, that were made for tracking sizes and whatnot. Is there any way to implement this into the game, say on the main window? Stats for all involved players beside the "play" button. I remember playing various Age of Empire ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

updated I You had a treaty with your neighbor and then killed him? You might be able to build a fast empire, but that isn't a very good way to play the game. Backstabbing aside: An in-game note, I believe the updated game really needs an updated battle simulator. The battles are far too complex for...

Re: Oddities when attacking

I always seem to take 5-10% casualties when assaulting any world now, and when trying to take an entire sector that adds up fast. That could be a good thing though, at least planetary defenses are more useful. This may actually be part of what George was talking about when he mentioned slowing down...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

A thing that I have noticed in this Era is that there appears to me to be a slow down of the uplift of tech-levels 1-4. Also, the population growth appears to have slowed considerably. Is this a new thing, a bug, or something I am just noticing? Any idea's?

It has actually always been that way. I have always placed militia to 0 and it disappears.
