Re: [Beta] Console Dockscreen

Re: Understanding New Ore Generation

That's a lot of effort into something that the player won't even notice. How can you be so sure the player won't notice it? We could also have "world histories" accessible to the player. That's a lot of effort into something that the player won't even notice. You could say the same with Dwarf Fortr...

Re: Patches, Forks, and More

I absolutely love this idea, TTech! I think it also goes well with the philosophy of the game.

I might have made mistakes, so please let me know if you find one! Also, please feel to add your own fin...

Re: CSC America

I think it would also be nice to be able to buy reinforcements from stations. I would certainly help a lot. :) As a multiplayer version, it might be fun to actually be the high-ranking officers and receive orders from an AI. Then multiple people would each get assigned a mission to complete or have...

Re: 2014 Annual Report

(...) Either way, though, I think I need a special client because it will have CC+Eternity port bundled in. I need to talk to them to find out. Why would CC+Eternity port need to be bundled in? Steam won't approve a game unless they can make money from it. One way to do that is to have a bundle of ...

Re: CSC America

Most RTS games have a direct approach to command: the player commands every single unit personally ("micromanages"). Will CSC America break this trend and perhaps incorporate some "order of command"? So, the player commands a few high level officers, who in turn command pilots. The player does not h...

[Spoilers] Huari mission

I sold my thioseptal vial by mistake...so I doubled back to the station, to try and get it back, but...it wasn't in the station's items.

Is there anything I can do now to get a thioseptal vial, or is the Huari storyline done for me this playthrough?

Re: [1.5] New Stealth in Nebulae broken

Also, I believe you can still target ships that are inside nebulae if you have a targetting ROM installed? That way, you can initiate combat at range even though you couldn't initially see anyone on the radar due to nebula stealth.
