Re: Ideas for growing the community

As well as the initial image there is the matter of first gameplay, when someone first starts the game, a few rough corners is all it takes to make them leave. This means that we need to take a good look at the game, and try to polish any rough corners we can find, anything that might drive newcome...

Working on it. I am going for an aggressive, angular look to contrast the bricky allied ships.

Re: [New Mod-Tower Defense] Star Genesis 00

My idea would be like this: Main screen: 1. Upgrades -> a) Ship Upgrade Packages (each iteration gives a comprehensive improvement to a certain class of ship) -> One screen for each class of ship b) Facility Upgrades (same as above, but for facilities) -> One screen for each type of facility c) Rese...

Re: Ideas for growing the community

VISIONARY BUT UNLIKELY SUGGESTIONS Release Corporate Command for free (PEOPLE) "A better free game attracts more players." -Ideally, this would be in tandem with the introduction of alternate revenue system. Add multiplayer of some sort to Transcendence (PEOPLE) "Players prefer to play together." S...

Re: [New Mod] The Solar System to Scale

Been playing KSP lately and that gave me a good grasp of the scales of space (even though the KSP system is still highly miniaturized from the real thing.) Wondering how it would work with the gravity mod to make realistic space missions.

Re: [New Mod-Tower Defense] Star Genesis 00

If someone can tell me concisely and precisely how the thruster coordinates is supposed to work/if it is possible to make thrusters firing for rotation I can go and take a crack at it.

Re: [New Mod-Tower Defense] Star Genesis 00

Durkham with titanium colour scheme: 400x400 pixel per frame, someone help me spoiler-tag it to preserve thread readability. (It is deliberately off-centre, as the main rotational thrusters are positioned in a way that the axis of rotation is not exactly at the middle of the ship but slightly behind...

I have taken the liberty of re-interpreting the Durkham carrier based on a cruiser design I have lying around. I will make sprite-sheets later this week if you like.

We call those "Death weeks" over here. If I can survive the next week or so, I would be in a position to pick up the game.

Re: The Heisenmachines Quantum CPU: Do you use it?

If it is a slotless device, then it may be useful. (A CPU can't possibly be large enough to take a device slot, can it?) But in its current state I always ignore it, as the benefits the one-shot cubes give me is rather limited and unreliable for the CPU's cost in terms of slots and credits. (Why are...

Re: Succession #6 Corporate Command Sneak Peek

Agreed. Figuring out what loot/mess the previous player has left you with and making the best out of them is one of the charm of a succession game. I would appreciate more detailed write-up, though, I would recommend taking a screenshot any time something important/interesting happens and give a bri...

I've been wanting to see Earth a long time, and perhaps even align with some of the earth factions (I am a very patriotic Terran. :D)
