Increase Planetary Market selling rate

Currently, the selling rate for Pandora's Planetary Market is stuck at just 25% efficiency, meaning it is almost never worth selling resources on the market. Purchasing resources, however, is fine, since it sits at a full 100% efficiency. It would make the game more interesting if the selling rate w...

Re: Increase fungus yields for Terra Salvum

All the things you suggested are doable via modding. So feel free to do that. I personally would refrain from integrating such severe balance-changes into the base-game. You know, you could just state you disagree instead of all that. I already explained that I think my suggestion would be more bal...

Messari Pushovers

The Messari don't really fill the role of 'huge alien threat' they're supposed to. Aren't they meant to be this big force that is so dangerous all other activitives, wars etc must be suspended? As is, even the AI barely breaks as sweat as it walks all over them. I say upgrade the Messari. With the A...

Re: Messari Bonus

Logged onto the forums to also suggest a bonus for clearing the messari portals! (again... I've suggested this before). I just wanted to note that getting tech from the portals is a great idea. The AI is realy aggressive about hunting down the Messari, this would be an excellent way to reward it and...

Re: Increase fungus yields for Terra Salvum

Problem is the yield doesn't raise to 4/4 until the Transcendence era. That means for the first two thirds of the game (the most important thirds), fungus isn't worth using. In my opinion, Terra Salvum should prefer to use fungus if not from the beginning of the game then at least from the Mechaniza...

Increase fungus yields for Terra Salvum

Even with Terra Salvum, fungus (and forest, to some extent) don't provide enough resources that they're worth keeping. You end up clear-cutting the terrain and building improvements, same as all the other factions. This is a shame. For the next beta patch, try the following: - Fungus creates no poll...

Re: Quitting Pandora

This thread is actually a credit to Pandora: Here is a game that manages to challenge a player expecting [demanding!] an easy win. If this is due to Xilmi's AI improvements it simply means he is doing a good job - that the AI doesn't just roll over and die like in many similar games is high praise i...

Re: World Generation

+ Bump. I imagine the devs have their hands full right now but here are some picks from the top of my wishlist: - Fractal and Shuffle map scripts (these names are from the Civilization games). Fractal produces a more random map that could have both continents, islands and more. Shuffle produces a tr...

Re: What du you think why this game lacks popularity?

Another problem is the factions, the factions are as some people states, unlikeable with the sole exception of Terra Salvum. I don't know what the new diplomatic faction would be like but it probably be as awful as the other factions out there. Terra Salvum really is the only faction that is driven...

Re: Fungus Question

If you are referring to fungus on sea tiles there is currently what I hope is a bug/oversight; these do not have their yield improved with any of the fungus research; only land-based fungus does. Otherwise, I think you are misunderstanding how fungus works: Upon completing the project, fungus tiles ...

Re: Eclipse of Nashira = Terrible.

Hi Apheirox, out of curiosity, do you have a save game for when this 24k steal happened, and if yes could you please send it to info@proxy-studios.com? If there are players who build up so much cash we indeed have to cap the maximum amount stolen / sabotaged. From my played / observed multiplayer m...

Re: Eclipse of Nashira = Terrible.

So the agents can rob your treasury blind? How do that even work. I'm sure there is hostile nations that would love to send in agents into USA's fort knox and rob it of every single gold bar magically. And then, it sounds like the AI will poison your water well every single turn while you gain visi...

Re: Espionage [general discusion]

Once more into the breach... Like Xilmi says, espionage is simple enough to defend against - you simply have to block off agents by creating a 'wall' of your own units. Agents can't pass through your units. In the posted screenshot, that would mean stationing three units north of Stakhanov so any No...

Hi Apheirox, while it saddens me to hear this feedback I'll go ahead and defend our work since I firmly stand behind our design decisions: 1. From a conceptional point of view espionage is about navigating a unit behind enemy lines and avoiding obstacles. It adds a new playstyle to the game and yes...
