Re: Resources on planets

in comparison of say a planet with 15.0 metal and a minus 5% "bonus" and a planet with 8 metal and positive 25% bonus which is the more profitable planet? On the first planet you'd get 9.5 metal after building 10 Iron Mines (which is the maximum you can build on a regular planet). On the second pla...

Re: Orbital shipyard keeps disappearing

Perhaps when I set the planet policy to "Innovation" it decided to demolish my shipyard? There is a parameter AllowBuildingAutoDestructionForPlayer in the config file - seems to be set to true by default. You can change it to false if you know where your config file is and how to edit it (otherwise...

Re: Orbital shipyard keeps disappearing

Also, may as well ask another question. When a planet produces production points are those points only available to use on the planet itself, or do they add to a production point "pool" that can be used by any friendly colony? Generally - on the planet itself, with some (complicated) exception for ...

Re: Slitherine acquires the Master of Magic franchise

My expectations are quite low. Than I hear "Slitherine" I think "casualized gaming", and casualizing will kill the MoM. Happy to be wrong in this case. Wow, never been accused of making casual games before! Everything we do is at the hardcore end of the games market and half of what we do people do...

Re: Celestial Stations - How Do You Build Them?

Also cold Hovering Platforms - those are Doms for Gas Giants. First you research them, than colonize a Gas Giant, than build them like any other Dom/Platform.

Re: How many fighters are loaded

100 is the "capacity". Each small fighter has "size" of 10. Later you'll research interceptors - their "size" is 15. Heavy fighters and gunboats are even bigger.

Re: What is the difference between the option to delete or permanently delete a ship design??

Yes, permanently deleted designs wont appear in the next game.
You need to permanently delete or rename the existing design to free the name. Renaming seem to be less destructive.

there was a hotfix for some users who downloaded the 1.06g early on, sorry about this, the second update is the correct one
It seems like I'm one of those, who "downloaded early". What was changed in the hotfix?

Construction still "sometimes stops due to the lack of population". At least than playing for Lumens.

Re: Can I install Lumens over update 1.06e?

You can't install Lumens alone - it's and add-on to 1.06c. It's my understanding (from the experience with 1.06d) that you'd need to reinstall 1.06e after Lumens (or you'd be downgraded). Yes, this is a mess.

Re: Battle Control Frustration

Somehow "keep formation" doesn't work for me most of the time. They just change it to something they "choose" or even leave some ship behind.

Re: All races suddenly weak?!

Each AI faction gets a (renewable every year) "trade pool" of minerals (otherwise you would never be able to trade, because they are always "short") - this information is from the developer. It's my understanding that they can't use it themselves. However, they can use whatever they get from you in ...

Re: All races suddenly weak?!

They don't have enough minerals to support their fleet(s), so their ships decay over time.

Lumens still need a regular food if conquer other races

Vladimir has said that if Lumens conquer an other race's planet - the locals start "eating" energy ("hammers"). He said "dual feeding" system was too complicated to implement and didn't bring much "value". However, (from mine and several other Russian forum users experience) it seems like the (some ...
