Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

If the capital limit is increased, it should be only to 3 or 4. 6 would allow a huge section of the map to be claimed. I do agree sector capitals should be limited in ability to defect, maybe give them the same rate as in L&O, while other non-capitals have the same high rate if doctrine is not L&O.

Re: Era 3: Mesophon purchasing is overpowered

Starxplor posted a console command for bulk purchasing although I haven't tried it. "POST /api/buyItem HTTP/1.1" I'm not totally sure how to phrase it. That is not a console command, that is an HTTP connection request. This is essentially what your browser is doing when you click the button to buy....

Re: Balance final tweaks/changes before Beta 3

I would like to request a slight color change to the darker nebula area, it is almost impossible to see the difference between unexplored and explored dark nebula unless you move the map around to find a single background star that is bright enough to shine in the dark nebula and be missing in unexp...

Re: Game map: configuration, planet distribution, etc

Sorry, I didn't notice this reply until just now. As for the naming, this is why I suggested it be an option, say when designating an independent world, to have it apply a random name from original but unused names. Anyone can rename at any time, but some people are not that creative with names. Ano...

Re: Sector capital distance limits

To address the first issue, of reconfiguring established empires, maybe only designating a capital from an independent world would be affected by the minimum? The idea being that for any world to not be independent, it must have been within range of an established capital, and so its designation is ...

Re: Infantry defection mechanics

It would also help to not have to swing through with more transports to pick up all the left over troops in case they decide to revolt and join the opposition to my new GLORIOUS ruling of their puny world... sorry, a bit off topic, ha!

Re: Game balance thoughts: War

Is there any chance transports could start in a height that is out of range of defences stationed on a planet? If my fleet attacks a planet, and the planet has ships stationed on it, not a fleet in orbit, the defending ships are able to wipe out an entire fleet, thousands of transports, before my at...

Re: Ship balance changes and jump beacons

George, there is something that I ask you to consider. I get your point, but I would like to see how the current arrangement works before changing it. In practice, I think it will be hard to set up such discontiguous outposts because you'll have to use slow ships to do it. And once you've decided t...

Re: Anacreon Core Library

Thanks for all this info and nice comment on tax rate.

Edit after reading some of it:
I had thought TL6 was the best for highest population but these files show otherwise. Thanks for a real world(in-game) impact with these files.

Re: Era 3 feature/bug list

I think a lot of people have been clamoring for some way to merge multiple fleets without transferring down to a planet and then deploying back out of it. A lot of this stems from the 1000-ship-per-transaction limit that Mesophon imposes. Also +10000 to this! Hint: there is no 1000 ship transaction...

Re: Game map: configuration, planet distribution, etc

Just had another thought on this: Assuming the planets are originally named based on a list of potential names that are randomly chosen from for each planet on galaxy creation, could that list be set up to allow us to assign a planet named based on randomly pulling from the list?

I found the old DOS version on one of those 100+ games CDs way back in the day and then eventually found the windows version 2 that you linked to.
