Re: Sign up for the Order of Battle: Pacific Beta

The engine supports a range of settings, from fully animated 3D to boardgame style 2D. We're also thinking of adding another variation to display NATO class icons + unit type names on the counters instead of the unit icons. It's easy enough from an art point of view. Some screenshots below (WORK IN...

Re: Visit us at Historicon!

I'm not too far from Fredericksburg so I registered today. I hope I'm able to make it. If I can it will most likely be Friday. I'll be sure to track you guys down. :mrgreen:

Re: Regenerate Map

Well, I actually had to restart the game five times today in order not start out surrounded by Tundra. For some reason the game remembers all game settings except faction for me so that's a extra click to restart. I will agree that this is a minor annoyance and not a major problem though. I just wan...

Regenerate Map

Not sure if this was discussed already but would it be possible to add an option to regenerate the map on turn 0 if you don't like your starting position?

Re: Some More Thoughts

I still think research is too fast. I haven't looked yet but maybe that is something that can be modded with ease? Maybe you could have an option where you could choose the pace of research during a game?

Some More Thoughts

I've been away for a while but finally got back to the beta. Here are some more thoughts after starting a new game with version 0.21: 1) It still seems like you research technology way too fast. 2) I would also like to see more information displayed while you're in the tech tree. 3) I would still li...

Re: Some General Observations After Weeks of Play

I agree with your observations so far. 2) Ruins: Ruins are pretty lame at present. Could do more with them. Discover new research, provide specific benefit for controlling the ruin, give a special unit. Perhaps you could create a story about a previous civilization which lived on the planet and it g...

Re: First Impression

I liked the Blind Research option in Alpha Centauri. Research could be random but it was still based on the regular 'ordered' research tree.

Oh, one other thing. Will we be able to zoom out more? That's going to be a big demand from players if not. 8)

Re: [Poll] More Alien-Looking World?

How easy will it be to mod the game? If players can create new terrain graphics easily I wouldn't think this matters too much.

Early Thoughts

I've played a small amount and just wanted to post some quick initial thoughts/observations/questions: 1) Is it possible to rename your leader? 2) I've encountered the Sciter unit a couple of time but it never seems to attack me. Is that a bug or intentional? 3) I LOVE "Set this territory to be acqu...

Fresh install on Windows 8 Pro and everything is working fine! Looking forward to some testing now. I'll be back later with some first impressions.

Re: Next destination, Pandora!

Back to Alpha Centauri. Maybe I'll do an Alien Crossfire AAR while I patiently wait... :wink:
