Restart happening?

Post by --Imperator-- » Tue Mar 28, 2017 11:18 am

Sooo......

Is that new game happening any time soon, does anyone know? *ahem* George? :wink: I think we've had the list of final changes up for a while now, and pretty much every last little detail has been covered (including The Great Mesophon Imbalance).

It will definitely be fun to jump into a new game with these updates, especially with the no-capital and graviton launcher bugs all fixed.

Guess I'll check back in another 2 weeks again and see what's up...

My understanding was that instead of new galaxies for each era, the updates would be applied to the existing running games...

 I’ll poke him after Thursday’s stream. I might not play Anacreon myself, but I can imagine that a game where the fixed major bugs never played a role in galactic development at all would be a nice thing to have.

Make sure that he sees the list of requested minor tweaks compiled by Imperator and added to a little by me:

1. Reduce hypersonic missile range to R:20
2. Make GDMs R:10, multi use OR increase stats
3. Cannon attack type for Hammerhead (currently uses missile)
4. R:10 for Hammerhead, R:15 for Cerberus
5. HalfLife:12 for Cerberus OR HalfLife: 10 for Minotaur
6. HalfLife:4 for Vanguard
7. Remove missile protection from Hammerhead and Cerberus
8. AoE:0.1 for Manta
9. D:96 for Defiance and D:144 for Manta
10. Given the recent buff to planetary defenses, new empires should probably start out with slightly more ships including a few Adamants or Siriuses so that they can conquer at least one independent world of TL4+ from the get-go. New players will be discouraged if they don't have a chance to redesignate a planet or establish a trade route during their first gameplay session.
11. Mesophon prices are based on obsolete era2 power values and some units are substantially cheaper to buy than build in practice, I recommend adjusting them to match this table:

If they are based on an equation, I suggest AE_Cost = (Supply_Chain)Inclusive_WU_cost/8) * ((minTL+2))/10)

 I’ll point him at the list, but don’t get your hopes up. I’m pretty sure he mentioned that it might be fall before he digs back into Anacreon.

I believe he asked for a list of final minor revisions (these are mostly tweaks to library values).

If they're library values, we can put them into a pull request on Github so all he has to do is pull the changes, provided he agrees with them.

The current version running on the server, era3, is a branch off of master (which has the old ship and defense values). My understanding of Github is rudimentary- is it possible to create a branch off of a branch and then request a pull to the era3 branch?

Everything suggested is library values except for the Mesophon prices, which seem to be hardcoded.

Yep, we can make a fork off of the Era3 branch.

Haha, OK. To fork it you would navigate to the Era3 branch and then click "Fork" in the top right.

If you want I can put the pull request up this time.

No, I think I'm figuring this out. So when I fork it creates versions of both branches in my github account, which means that a pull request would basically be asking George to change his versions into my versions?

Ok, I have updated era3 at https://github.com/wTVd0/Anacreon-CoreLibrary/tree/era3 and submitted a pull request.
