Re: Testing help

Okay so it seems everything's working as expected (thanks George!) "St Katherine's Star", now "Ares Homeworld" was taken by hoa004 and went independent as it should have. I had sector capitals named A to F The sector capital C was redesignated to be the new capital, followed by E and now B. So it se...

Re: Ship Balance Discussion Thread

Sounds good :)

It would be something like this...

Range: Starcruiser >> Starfrigate > Jumpcruiser > Gunship > Jumpship
Damage: Starcruiser >> Jumpcruiser >> Starfrigate > Gunship > Jumpship
Armor: Starcruiser >>> Starfrigate >> Gunship > Jumpcruiser > Jumpship

Re: Ship Balance Discussion Thread

Yep, that could work: anacreon.jpg much inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iapcKVn7DdY The large purple lines on the outside indicate a hard counter, the smaller black lines a soft counter. Starting from the top working clockwise: Starfrigates >>> Jumpcruisers: obviously, range advantage c...

Re: Game balance thoughts: Economy

This topic looks really interesting. So doctrines won't affect what units you build on sector capitals any more, but rather prevent nasty things from happening to your empire. Thus an empire is limited in some ways but can benefit in others. Sounds like a good way to rebalance doctrines. I was also ...

Ship Balance Discussion Thread

Ship Balance Discussion Thread Evidently ship balance is a difficult topic, so here's a topic to discuss what changes should be made to ships' stats. A few ideas: Each ship type should have its unique strengths and weaknesses, with some types being able to counter others. We have 5 major types, lis...

Re: Testing help

Okay, cheers :D

I have 3 sector capitals now being built so feel free to cap them after tomorrow when they're finished.

Or cap one now to see if an in-progress one gets bugged.

Re: Testing help

Thank you! I've made an empire in Beta 2 named "Commonwealth" with capital world of "St Katharine's Star" located in the far west at the very edge of the map. If I have time I'll try to conquer a few worlds and designate them as sector capitals and we can test a variety of scenarios. Is anyone activ...

Re: Next Beta game start?

Ok, I've made some edits to reflect that. WTV, if you have a table of labor or resource costs per unit of ships and defenses could you add that as well with proposed changes? Cheers.

Just one thing: how to make starcruisers actually useful, without major coding changes, just by editing their stats?

Re: Next Beta game start?

Yes, that's great news. I've made a spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1m7G076L99AhOIulIfcaKRJOHy4_EOA9ofI1QjEF26LM/edit?usp=sharing) to propose the new balance changes for Anacreon Beta 3. Feel free to edit it especially those who have been playing a long time. If everyone agrees w...

Next Beta game start?

Now that 1.7 is out, I was wondering if the upcoming changes and/or bugfixes will be carried over to the existing Beta 2 game? Will the map be reset and the bugged empires deleted or will there simply be a new galaxy? It's just that I was considering restarting this week and wasn't sure if it'd be w...

Re: You're not forgotten

Great news, thank you! As a newcomer to Anacreon from Transcendence I feared development was on the back burner, but apparently that's changing soon. The game definitely has potential, and could possibly be monetised via expansions similar to Trans (also can't wait for Part 2 on that!) *excitement i...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

The Imperium has fallen. Long live the younger races of the galaxy... I've abdicated. As much as I enjoy this game, unfortunately right now I don't have the time to continue maintaining and nurturing such an enormous empire due to IRL business. Besides, there is no end goal or "victory objective" in...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Yeah, I had this exact same problem before with jumpship parts, although it did work out when I reset the trade routes. Did you do it all within the same watch? Also ensure the autofac has everything it needs - chronimium, trillium, goods etc. Or connect the autofac and yards directly instead of thr...

Re: Anacreon Beta II Discussion Thread

Alright sir, your demands have been noted. Seeing as the war is concluded, our fleets shall withdraw and you may retake whatever worlds I have captured in the North. As per the surrender terms, these will be the new borders of the Imperium. Purple outlines our old clusters and borders, green will be...
