Re: trade just seems broken

I had a look in game of your empire, two things jump out: 1. The TL of some of your worlds are too high, so you're having a hard time supporting them 2. You have too many trade hubs, for an empire this size there doesn't need to be any. Import the goods directly Consider the followng: Trade hubs beh...

Re: THE BARRICADES PACT

Members of the Barricades Pact, we have to do something about the person who keeps trolling me. Today the 3rd separate empire has taken one of sector capitals. The first was called 'Greater Realm of hoa004' and took 7 worlds. The second 'Old League of hoa0004' took 6 worlds. Today's third 'Trading ...

Re: Beta 2 Map. [spoilers ahead]

Haha, I had one of my infantry academy worlds rebel on me. When I logged in the rebels had already accumulated a force that was more than 2000 in rating. Putting down this rebellion ended up wiping out almost a quarter of all my exotroops.
Btw, I destroyed those planetary defenses for you.

Re: Anacreon Questions and Answers

I don't know if this is actually your issue, but for my trade hub chain all I needed to do was to wait a few watches before the goods started flowing. Since import and exports do not update instantly, you need to wait for the demand to propagate through the chain. When you connect C to H1, C will as...

Re: A Mediocre Player's Blog on Anacreon

5-15 seems like a unreasonably large number. Consumer goods worlds only need one incoming trade route for trillum, and the most routes any planet could ever need is 7 (food, tech, ship parts, trillum, hexacarbide, chronimium/aetherium+ctholon). With the exception of high tech jumpship yards, no prod...

Re: Bugs

Planets have civil war over lack of environmental supplies for no apparent reason. I'm getting this regularly. Life support supplies do seem to work strangely, but I have the suspicion that planets with only trace trillum deposits will not be able to produce enough for its own needs. Fleets sometim...

Re: Bugs

I'm apparently able to designate a world inside a nebula as a starship yard. The ramjet yard/component autofac options are not available. The world is making ships, and I can deploy them, but they can't travel anywhere. There are a few more worlds nearby where I can do this as well. Nebula Starship ...

Re: Starfrigates & Starcruisers

Looks like your cruiser got shot down by autocannon satellites while targeting the HEL cannons. You can click on the "target" button and then the autocannon satellites icon to hit those first.
But yeah, megatheres aren't really worth building.

Re: Anacreon Request thread

Several things I think that would be nice to see: With regards to game flow: The ability to queue fleet destinations Useful for exploring and navigating around nebula patches Worlds should build spaceports automatically Or better yet, just remove them and extend a world's trade range automatically u...

Re: Anacreon Request thread

Well, I don't know if it is a trick per se. Don't I have a right to defend myself. Why have only one sector capital - for my enemy to conquer it [and then lose a bunch of worlds with it]. Then I have to make another sector capital from scratch - only for the same thing to happen over & over again. ...

Re: Anacreon Request thread

No offense to darkMATTER, but there should probably be a limit to how many sector capitals you can designate in a certain time period- especially under the Law & Order doctrine. Most designations can't be given to worlds that are outside of an influence sphere, but sector capitals are an exception....

Nandao is, according to Wikipedia, a southern broadsword, not a southern passage. Since it's the name of a weapon in the game this is probably the sense it's meant in. This is one I dug up in my work on an alternate weapon set for WE. Very good observation, it never occurred to me that the "dao" co...

Longzhu In Chinese, "long" means dragon, and "zhu" means pearl or bead. Therefore, the "sphere" in the English name is red...

Greetings and questions

Hi everyone I've started playing Transcendence about 4 months ago, and I love it. I think it's the perfect blend of RPG and sci-fi shooter, and I'm eagerly anticipating 1.0. My favorite ship is the Wolfen; it's very well armed and armored in the beginning so I can easily go through the first few sys...
