Re: Targeting system changes

Why were the targeting changes necessary in the first place? I think the system was fine the way it was, and this is definitely a case of "if it's not broken, don't fix it". IMO "t" for reds and "f" for greens is good enough for all the targeting needs I can think of. When it comes to green dots, "f...

Re: My thoughts on the game

Wow, that's such a great idea
Put that capital in the nebula and we get the Pirates of Jakarta scenario
I'd do it but I'm stuck with a ghost empire that has no planets and hence cannot abdicate

Re: Solar items increase reactor efficiency instead of refue

I am very much against nerfing solar armor. If we liken the fuel mechanic in Transcendence to the food consumption of other roguelikes, the system we have is a lot harsher, in that: The consumption rate is very high Consumption increases as the player equips better items Performing actions (e.g. att...

Re: Reassembly

The way I would describe Reassembly is building spaceships with Legos. I think you're certainly right about the game's colors being pretty; it's what drew me to the game initially. There are several major factions, each with a predetermined list of parts (many of them locked at the beginning) that c...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Ok, before everyone buys into this trade cluster propaganda. In theory, a perfectly optimized mesh clearly beats a perfectly optimized trade cluster, because every planet in a mesh is producing with no planets sitting idle just redistributing resources. Of course the hard part is the perfect optimiz...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

I actually think dynamic nebular clouds would be a pretty nice effect. I do recall seeing in beta I a few patches of purple nebula and nebular worlds that can be designated as starship factories but the ships produced there can't move. I use chrome and can't scroll around the galaxy smoothly. Its a ...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Well, it looks like everyone wants a piece of the Autocracy. As of now I'm certainly leaning towards building nothing but basic infantry, because all the other types deal way too much overkill damage. Exotroops do 40 damage, but no infantry has 40 hp. Basic infantry and imperial guards both have onl...

Re: Ideas on expanding mining

I think a good question to ask right now is what do we expect mining to add to the game. Currently I see it just being a source of extra cash; but since the game's economy is quite generous, that source of cash is rarely, if ever, needed. I would be very much against reducing the player's income to ...

Re: Troll's attacks

It seems that this event brings forth two very old issues 1. The game mechanics need to enable empires to defend themselves better 2. Leftover ships and resources on neutral planets should be cleared But I also think this can influence gameplay positively in that 1. It reminds empires to be constant...

Re: Scripting?

@OP: I really don't think scripting will take the game in the right direction because it would worsen all the problems that you mentioned. Right now I think the amount of personal attention required serves as a balancing mechanism. Even powerful empires could not wage wars willy-nilly because the pl...

Re: Idea: Succession Game

I think this is a good idea.
I would also suggest that at the very beginning, we will set some goal that this empire will accomplish, so that the game will not stagnate.

Re: Speedrunning strats

Interesting, here's a couple of questions:
How powerful is your reactor, and how did you get it?
What weapon do you use to beat the ICS, and how did you get it?
How did you make your first bit of rins to pay for dock services at the Ringer shipyards?
