Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Now I am not sure that AoE is working after all. Behemoth-class starcruisers attacking armored satellites didn't seem to be doing splash damage (unless defenses are immune to AoE since they don't have unitsPerCell?)

Re: Anacreon Era 3 Reference and FAQ

We would be able to figure it out if we knew what the WU output/population was at each TL at 100% efficiency, but right now I don't have those figures. Note that this is complicated somewhat by resource costs, since some resources require trillum (which is affected by abundance - organic food is als...

Re: Fleet orders redux

Is that example taken from a previous version of Anacreon? That is literally how trade routes used to be, and the modern form seems to be much better than the script in that you cannot starve a planet since it takes what it needs before allowing any export. It is like old Anacreon, except it would ...

Re: (Priority?) Bugfix for Era 4: fleets can path outside map

They don't make it TOTALLY irrelevant because they do require major detours and physically close planets may still be quite remote from one another in clearspace. You can certainly send expeditionary forces to other sectors but they will mostly be on their own, and can't be quickly reinforced until ...

Fleet orders redux

A while back I suggested that it should be possible to give fleets a series of orders to perform in sequence (e.g. order a fleet to attack a planet upon arrival, rather than the current case where a fleet travels to a planet and then sit there until given an attack order). My complete suggestion is ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

This has been requested in the past . Personally I think that built in game statistics and maybe a very basic leaderboard/achievement system might increase player engagement a lot, although they could also potentially distort gameplay into a rush for artificial achievements (note that Transcendence ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

To expand on this... Protecting even marginally productive jumpship yards from gunship attack is going be extremely important In fact, any undefended world within sector capital range of a potential enemy is a liability. It can quickly be redesignated as a jumpbeacon after being conquered. True, bu...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

From what I've seen of Era III so far, my thoughts about strategy are: Protecting even marginally productive jumpship yards from gunship attack is going be extremely important, since once a distant enemy takes a jumpship yard they can immediately move jumpships into a region (although the jumpships ...

Re: Oddities when attacking

I had a similar experience. A fleet of ~1000 Cerberuses and ~30,000 Eldritches with Reliant transports and a separate scout fleet of 62 vanguards attacked an independent TL10 world with 12,000 GDMs. As soon as the Vanguards were destroyed, the attack failed. I wondered if an attack/invasion would fa...

I have also been successful moving Cerberuses and mixed ramjet-jumpship fleets around in my little corner of the galaxy.

I am able to move the Hammerheads from a dark nebula into a bright nebula, at least from some angles.

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

I am able to purchase Mesophon Hammerheads and move them around in the dark nebula north of me. Hardly conclusive, but another data point to consider.

Re: Oddities when attacking

For 1, I assume this is a tiny fleet? The game compares either fleet power or ship count during combat and if one fleet is too "small" it tries to escape, even if it is effectively immune to the enemy. 2 & 3 - yeah, I've noticed this too. In practice there actually are times when you might want to m...

Re: Era 3 bug: Unable to designate new sector capitals?

You have to either have a jumpship yard and establish the capital in the part of its beacon range that is beyond the capital's range, or convoy the transports with a gunship or capship fleet.
