Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

What would you think of forcing Starton Eridani to have a cargo hold and having the tutorial missions mention "by the way, if you want more cargo space, go to Eridani and install a hold"? I think it would work best if you can get a guaranteed hold via the tutorial missions, like the smart cannon. B...

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

First, do you think new players are likely to restart when they die, or are they more likely to continue (violating the permadeath conduct) in an attempt to see the entire game in their first play? It can go either way, but when the player dies they are returned to the intro screen, and if they are...

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

I always play with the Wolfen and I almost never use a cargo expansion. I remember my very first time playing the game I chose the Wolfen as well. I think its probably fine for players who pick to Wolfen to run into cargo issues very quickly. If they loot everything they find they'll run into space ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Would it be a horrible idea to tout Anacreon somewhere like the 4X subreddit? On one hand it would be nice to see more players, on the other hand it's a) beta software and b) running on a server that probably can't support a ton of concurrent users. I think its worth trying. I'm not sure where Anac...

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

I might regret saying this, but I'm going to say that the first open alpha will be released in June this year. I went and made some changes to the UI because it really needed some work. Here's the multiplayer server lobby: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/265561663741100043/306962273820213248/...

Nice !
Would love to see the player borrow a Borer and mine with that.
I thought so too - I just can't think of a good way to implement that. It would work great for a mining tutorial mission, because the player doesn't need to equip any mining gear.

Re: New Commonwealth missions

I think it would also be worthwhile having a brief mining tutorial arc to show new players how to mine. Commonwealth MIning Assay The player docks at a mining colony and is approached by a group of miners. They want to mine an asteroid field in the system, but mining activity in the system is known ...

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

This also opens up the option of creating custom ships right in the game. NAMI ships in particular can be pretty modular, and IAVs could actually be constructed out of scrap parts, but that's getting a little to ambitious for the "anytime soon" timeframe. Turns out this was a lot easier than I thou...

New Commonwealth missions

With the latest updates to Commonwealth missions, all CW stations that give missions now use mission types. This makes it a lot easier to add missions, so I think its a good time to have a brainstorming thread. If we get some good ideas I can write them up into mission types and maybe we can put the...

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

How are you handling ship destruction? Just a big boom and removing the model from the game? Pretty much how it works now, but in melee matches it would definitely be better for them to leave a wreck - that introduces more hazards/hiding spots as the game goes on. Individual meshes will be separate...

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

Things are starting to move pretty quickly. I don't think it'll take more than a couple months to release an alpha. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/265561663741100043/304087270019956736/ShipLineup.jpg I've been experimenting with nebula maps as well, which are looking great too.

Era 3: Unable to designate new sector capitals?

I can't seem to designate planets as sector capitals. The error I get is: "Sector capitals must be at least 250 light-years away from imperial capital." despite that they are withing 250 light years (and meet all other requirements).

Anyone else seeing this error?

The map has been made and George is playing a bit of Anacreon now.

Regular stream time is 4 pacific and he usually streams Transcendence.
