Due to powerline work in our area, we have to move Anacreon to a backup server on Friday (16 Feb 2018). The game might be a slower than normal.

We'll be back to our normal server by late Friday or early Saturday.

Excuse me sir, please pay attention to us. We like your game, and are trying to make good suggestions to make it a lot better. There are people here who I think might be able to help out with the workload on this game. We all have enjoyed the Transcendence it seems like, it is pretty fun. But... what about this one?

 I’ll remind him on Thursday that it’s been a while since he dedicated a few weeks to poking at Anacreon. I recommend y’all over here spend the next few days finding/compiling the major bugs and balance issues you want looked at so you can have specifics to have him look at.

There is a bug with the dark nebula layers being overlaid on top of each other flagged as priority on Ministry, which is still occurring in Era 3. There are entire sections of the map in which ramjets are bugged and cannot be issued commands. This is the only major bug so far, although the gameplay features could use additional balancing if/when George has time to take a look at them.

Perhaps a new map would be nice as well, presuming it's not too much work to generate one? If server capacity/load is an issue then the older Alpha and Beta 1/2 maps could be deleted as I don't think anyone is still actively playing on those.

Many thanks.

As well as this, some sort of way to clear (or hide) all planet messages would be a huge quality of life fix. The number of empires that abdicate because they can't deal with the tens of thousands of clicks needed to clear the messages blocking the screen after a rebellion/war really hurts the already tiny playerbase. It took me six hours and a good audiobook (thank you Brandon Sanderson) to clear my empire after a particularly bad rebellion.

communication system need to be upgraded, we need to mantain memory of all the messages we send and receive, there are too many messages that we miss because we click too soon

That too, but at least you can screenshot them, even if it does get a bit much if there is an alliance planning something or an extended cold war. But there is no workaround for having to click tens of thousands of messages .

Moreover we need a simple "ALL" button in order to DEPLOY "ALL" and TRANSFER "ALL"
