Re: A Bunch of Lore Questions

Thanks man! But I'm still not content on the colonists' oxygen supply. Electrolysis won't be efficient, and water would already be valuable to waste. Remember that fusion reactors are ubiquitous in this universe, so there actually is sufficient energy available to perform CO2 -> carbon + O2 convers...

Re: Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

Here's what I believe is a complete system for implementing gas giants. Gas giants get a bonus to ship production but are slow to develop. Gas giants do not support ground based-defenses, but gain additional orbital defense options. // Some settlements can be found on moons and space platforms orbit...

Re: Restart happening?

I'm not able to attend the stream tomorrow, if anyone is attending would they be willing to nudge George to consider the era3 pull request, adjust Mesophon values, start a new game, and explain the formula for attackValue? If there are concerns about server space/savefile accumulation/etc, I think i...

Re: Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

Here is a special ground defender (guided missile emplacements) for citadels, so that citadels aren't limited to building crummy basic infantry. This unit is a great value from a WU and resource perspective, but it can't be transported offworld. It uses the light missile launcher component, which is...

Re: Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

Yep, you could write your own scenario and change quite a lot of stuff. One issue is that I suspect that running a game requires a fair bit of server resources and there is a ticket on ministry indicating that old save states are accumulating which suggests to me that the game isn't really in a stat...

Re: Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

For old-style planet classes I think you would define a worldClass trait for the planet and one or more feature trait for the production modifiers. For example if you were trying to replicate the old Gas Giant class you would create a single trait that has distinct 66% WU cost modifiers for each sta...

Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

Now that our understanding of how Anacreon works under the hood is expanding, I'm sure some people are brainstorming custom units, improvements, traits, designations, etc. that might get added to custom scenarios in the future. Here is an example to kick things off. It's an artifact structure that a...

Any discussion of Anacreon during/after the stream? I wasn't able to attend.

Re: NPC Empires?

One way that interesting "NPEs" could be added without writing any AI code would be to scatter a bunch of single-planet independent worlds that have a special "barter world" designation allowing them perform reciprocal demand:max trade for specific resources with T&E empires at advantageous rates. T...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

I guess one issue we never addressed is the Hammerhead-GDM interaction in dark nebulas- with the proposed changes to GDMs, everything in dark nebulas will outrange GDMs except Stingers (which are protected against them) and explorers. It's not a huge concern for the time being, but it bears mentioni...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

George can look at the pull request on github for the library changes. The only thing that we weren't able to address are the attackValues for the modified units (don't know the formula) and revisions to the prices at which Mesophon sells ships (these seem to be hardcoded). I also observed (but didn...

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

Desert worlds should be hostile to food production? Desert (and empyreal) worlds have a breathable or nearly-breathable atmosphere, so agriculture might be performed outside on the surface using natural sunlight. Desert worlds can be anything from Tatooine, Mars, Arrakis, Vulcan, etc. The "base" fo...

Re: Restart happening?

They did pay for nebular ramjet capships, the same ones they sold. So it was possible to buy and then immediately resell these ships to Mesophon, even on non-nebular planets.

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

You could even create interesting complex traits like this one, which I believe would be valid: Trait core.belligerentPopulation { category: feature name: "belligerent traditions" productionAdj: ( { type: core.infantry workUnitsAdj: { value:1.25 op:defaultValue } } { type: core.core.imperialSecurity...
