Re: Server problems (split from "Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread")

Found something interesting: (using anacreon2 URL) I left my browser open with the game field for hours, without interacting with it. No timeout error. I come back to my computer and start doing some things, moving fleets, attacking a world, establishing trade routes. Now, I get the timeout error ag...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Just tried to load the game again, with the anacreon2 link, Firefox is just sitting there spinning... finally got purple game spinner on screen, still no game field though. EDIT: Other sites, including these forums, are loading fine. EDIT 2: Still getting the timeout error. EDIT 3: Been playing for ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

The initial page at the new address took a while to load, but once it did, the game list and loading game screens were much quicker. I will play around a bit to see if I get any errors. Thanks! EDIT: Looks like world TL icons are showing up but designation icons are not loading. EDIT 2: Tried force ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

It was when I posted that comment, I haven't gotten into the game until now for today, will edit this post to update in a bit. EDIT: The game appears to be taking a long time to load. Even after the interface is loaded, the page is still 'loading' as Firefox has the spinning blue circle. This is not...

Server problems (split from "Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread")

Connection issues have been for more than just a day. At the worst times, nearly 1/4 of minute ticks fail to update and lose connection.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

starxplor, how is your empire controlling almost 200 worlds with 3 capitals without any defections? Is it just pure luck or did something get done about the secession limits? I reread the alpha notes and apparently the limit is >2 sector capitals, not >2 capitals total. I think that I've been sprea...

Re: Fleet orders redux

Is that example taken from a previous version of Anacreon? That is literally how trade routes used to be, and the modern form seems to be much better than the script in that you cannot starve a planet since it takes what it needs before allowing any export.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Didn't starxplor do something similar on his website? It would be really cool if player stat tracking could be automated. This was still player-based, specifically my empire's view of the galaxy. I never made it auto-update, in case of error i didn't want it slamming the server when I was not aroun...

Since it should be obvious to everyone, I might as well make it official:

Re: ERA 3: Trade route suggestion

Agree, it would be a cool feature. Most worlds in a cluster sit around redistributing resources, and having to calculate the optimal import/export percentages by hand can be quite tedious, so I just leave it alone until everything stabilises. That is part of my point though, it would take weeks for...

ERA 3: Trade route suggestion

With efficiency, and to a lesser extent, population, always changing, it would be nice if when a planet cannot export the number of resources requested by the percent of need, the unfulfilled export would be spread to all other non-static defined routes. Alternatively, being able to specify a [max] ...

Re: Oddities when attacking

The fleet I was attacking with was listed with a power level 3-4 times the defence forces. It was 800+ udines vs 400-600 each of GDM and HEL.

I understand there may be times a player wants to override immunity, but that should be a player action, not the default.

Oddities when attacking

So, a couple of things have come up: 1) A fleet with only Udine ships ordered to attack a planet with sub 1K GDM and usb 1K HEL will immediately 'fail' the attack and revert to orbiting after dropping a few missiles. It is like they do not see believe there are still defences left to destroy. 2) Udi...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Anyone else notice a problem with ship producing planets going from normal importation of parts to suddenly pretending part factories are not producing anything? In my case, when I kill the trade route, and re-establish it, the proper production ratio of ships comes back until the minute update, an...
