Re: Era 4 Alpha

Nice. I'm testing on the Alpha now as Commonwealth of Man, capital name Unity - and the galactic map indicates I'm somewhere to the far west. WTV that looks horrendous. Did you spawn in a nebula? Must be due to the new nebula changes, either that or that beige color is the new light nebula color? Tr...

Re: General Noob Questions&Welcome Thread

Can this be stickied? Or perhaps reposted to the bottom of the Announcement. The people on the Era 3 map should probably be sent an in-game message or something that an Era 4 map is coming up in a few weeks, else it's going to be a very lonely galaxy. If they want to restart then or something. Waywa...

Re: Era 4 unit changes

Imperator, if high-tech starship speeds are 2x low-tech speeds while keeping other stuff constant the low-tech ships will be basically garbage. I suggested 1 ly/min for starships and 2 ly/min for ramjets, regardless of tech level. The low-tech Defiance and high-tech Gorgos will have the same FTL sp...

Feature: Different Sovereign Colors & Diplomatic States

What do people think about this proposal as a mechanic for implementing different empire colors?

Re: Era 4 unit changes

Yes. Minotaur = good, Sirius = bad. The Imperium had a fleet of 25M Minotaurs at the time of its abdication, and I used them almost exclusively in every Era 3 conflict up till then (about 4-5 conflicts all up, maybe more what with my warmongering and all) I think gunships might be the new meta from ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Timer for redesignating worlds: Add a 5-10 minute counter for designating important worlds like SCs and jumpbeacons to some other thing - as we all know players redeginate these during war to stop the enemy getting a strategic advantage. Yes, I forgot to add the balance between low/high-tech units. ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

Oh excellent, thanks AP. Yes, I saw the announcement, hopefully Part 2 is coming up on Steam soon. As for Anacreon, WTV has an excellent Master List on Ministry that catalogues all the issues at present. It is perhaps TOO excellent in terms of detail, as I'd wager two weeks is not a lot of time to t...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Ha, nice. Looks like you finally decided to put the Imperial Fleet to good use exterminating xeno scum . It's the end of the Era, so I assume you're going for Armageddon. Then the survival of your empire isn't exactly a priority and as long as you have at least one sector capital left, or can keep e...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Oh, don't worry... I'm sure 03 will give the Hegemony's starships a good battering with the entire Imperial military having been transferred to their control. In fact, I'm expecting it. Look at what they did with 1M Minotaurs last time, now they have 20M :lol: Also, before I abdicated I checked and ...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

What about a button below "Send Msg" in the Capital -> Empire tab titled "Declare War"? This will set the empire's state and color to hostile correspondingly, and possibly also notify the target player than Empire X has declared war on them. For empires in a "war" state, replace that button with one...

Updated to reflect that I have migrated a lot of the info to the Kronosaur wiki. When Project Glacier is completed, I will migrate it to Ministry.
What is Project Glacier?

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

I've abdicated. In light of the approaching Era 4, I don't see much point in continuing to maintain a 1000 world Imperium, and there are other games I'd like to spend my free time on :mrgreen: That said: the whole 50 million strong Grand Imperial Fleet has been transferred to the Bug King's 03 empir...

Re: (Future) Era 4 Development Discussion Thread

I have revised my personal master list for Era 3.9 and made it easier to read. Let me know if there are any bugs that I overlooked. Excellent list, I think it sums up everything quite nicely. With the different empire colors, if we had a separate color for "neutral" empires: yellow? (neutral meanin...

Re: Anacreon Source

As the Era 4 update is approaching, I thought it might be useful to peek at the source to see how stuff is implemented and identify room for improvement/new features/bugfixes etc. I've just had a quick skim through, as an interesting example we can see how map colors are currently implemented in thi...
