Re: Cleaning out the save folder

Based on my experience, it is safe to delete the save files using explorer. I have done it more than once. And you do not need to keep the data folder.

Aquatic Formers?

According to what I've read, it's possible with the DLC to build aquatic formers and then improve water hexes. Is that right? What technology do I need to have researched in order to do that?

Re: Announcement: Your chance to affect the future of Pandor

All thanks go to you for being willing to put in the time and effort to improve this game. :D The fact that in less than two months you've been able to improve the AI as much as you have just crystallizes for me in my mind something I've pondered before on several occasions. Which is this: Why can't...

Re: Announcement: Your chance to affect the future of Pandor

I was a beta tester on this game. I very much liked many of the game mechanics, like the way cities could be specialized and the operations that could be researched -- these things were different from any 4X game I'd played before. (And I've played many, many 4X games, beginning with CIV I; it's my ...

Re: Terraforming

It didn't seem to give formers any new abilities when I researched it.

Rivers

The map needs rivers.

I know this is an alien world, but it seems to me that any planet with liquid surface water would have rivers.

Thoughts after 200 turns

I'm now a bit more than 200 turns into my playthrough, and I thought it might be time to stop and reflect on the experience: The game definitely has the "one more turn" effect going on. It's held my attention quite well -- I've stayed up later than intended more than one night so far. The tech tree ...

What does this tech do? I researched it, but can't figure out how it works.

Re: Orbital Bombardment

No need to build another one after the 5-turn cooldown -- another bombardment automatically becomes available when the cooldown finishes. But I seem to remember that the operations window wouldn't appear after I built the uplink building, even after 5 turns had passed. I had to build another type of...

Re: Orbital Bombardment

I don't think it was the cool down, but I haven't gone back and tested to be absolutely certain. (I'm having too much fun playing my current game to go back right now. I'll test it a bit later. :D )

Re: Interesting dilemma

I very much like Giskler's idea about choosing an approach after encountering the wildlife. Maybe make it so that some factions could only follow one of the paths (Environmentalists would have to choose to coexist; Fanatics would have to choose to exterminate) in order to maintain the flavor of that...

Re: Orbital Bombardment

Ok, I went back to a previous save and researched field training, and then built a field training operation, and then the operations winow finally appeared. It just doesn't appear if the first operation you get is orbital bombardment.

This seems like a bug.

Re: Orbital Bombardment

There's no window up there at all.

I built the orbital bombardment building -- should that make the operations window show up? Or do I have to do something further? Because the operations window is not visible.

The updates is currently downloading 3 files at about 20 KB/s. Is this indicative of a problem?

Graphics anomaly

I have a city which controls a hex with an observatory on it. I had a former build a mine on the observatory hex. The observatory stayed visible until I saved the game and then loaded the save, after which the mine graphic was visible in he hex instead. Is this a bug?

There are no windows at all in either of the upper corners of the screen. Do I have to do something to make it visible?

Apparently there is supposed to be an operations window, but I'm not seeing it. Where would that show up on the screen?
