Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Public service alert: If you allocate 0 labor to the militia base structure (seen on autonomous worlds / trade . It has actually always been that way. I have always placed militia to 0 and it disappears. I'm sure it has, but this behavior was new to me since I rarely left autonomous worlds as such ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Public service alert: If you allocate 0 labor to the militia base structure (seen on autonomous worlds / trade hubs / T&E capitals), it will disappear and you won't be able to build infantry on that world again until you redesignate it. Ticket here.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Anyone else notice a problem with ship producing planets going from normal importation of parts to suddenly pretending part factories are not producing anything? In my case, when I kill the trade route, and re-establish it, the proper production ratio of ships comes back until the minute update, an...

Re: Era 3.9 update

You can still see it in the game, e.g. in the Mesophon "buy" interface. It still underlies forces counts. It's calculated automatically. I'll need to update the units page on will.kronosaur.com/anacreon/eras/era3/units to reflect this).

Re: Era 3.9 update

For players wondering about the minutiae what has changed: Mesophon now pays half as much as it did previously for rawMaterials (minerals of any kind) and for organic food. For T&E empires, it is now roughly equally as efficient to make and sell ship components as it is to sell minerals mined from "...

Re: Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

Anyone know what determines whether a ship is treated as having jump propulsion (requiring a beacon, unless defined as an explorer) vs. warp propulsion (not requiring a beacon)? Ramjets and explorers are specifically defined with tags like FTL: { type:explorer speed:100.0 } , but although jumpships ...

Re: Ship Balance Discussion Thread

So I've had some thoughts about transports lately. Right now it almost never not makes sense to send infantry-laden transports along with a primary attack fleet , especially when fighting another player. Transports are too vulnerable to defenses, don't fire back at attackers and are a priority targe...

Re: Unrealistic population growth?

This is an issue that a lot of 4x games have, and I think a lot of the time it just has to be handwaved away. GalCiv II explained it as "not everyone on the planet belongs to your civilization and they voluntarily join/leave", which may or may not be an appropriate way to think about Anacreon. Since...

Re: Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

Do you mean the price that Mesophon purchases resources for? If so, you would need to halve the price paid, not double it. Sorry, yes, you're right. I meant double the number of work units required to earn 1 aes, which means halving the price that Mesophon offers to buy your raw materials. And it w...

Re: Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

I think the root cause of the problem is pricing resources based on "major" worlds instead of "abundant" worlds. If I double the price of all resources, then it will balanced for abundant worlds, which means 1 aes will cost roughly 20 work units--as intended. With that change, I think all the other...

Re: Galaxy loading error

I apologize. This looks like a bug on the server. I've restarted the server, and it looks OK now, but I need to figure out the root cause. Thanks George! Just a gentle reminder, it probably would be better if the various logins redirected to https by default so that passwords aren't being sent in p...

Re: Question about Steam and here.

To build on what Xephyr said: Corporate Command adds new enemies, factions, stations, weapons, missions, player ships, star systems, game systems (like an auton bay that lets you service and modify autons), etc. to the base game (Stars of the Pilgrim). When you play Stars of the Pilgrim with Corpora...

Re: A Bunch of Lore Questions

@Shrike Nice input. In comparison to our solar tech, how efficient are Transpace Solar devices. @Ferd (I hope you won't mind me calling you that) Yeah. Hats off to plants. 99% utilization of solar energy. You think we humans can live another century? Plants are really only a couple % efficient in p...

I posted a Ministry ticket. This may have to do with the Rackspace issue that took the forums down a couple days ago.
