Re: Ending game early to see progress

An option like that does not exist. However, you can disband all your units and set your cities to self-destruct.

Re: 7 Rebalanced Pandora-v1.6.1 Factions (help please)

First of all, I gotta say that I don't think the 7 default-factions are particularly imbalanced. I've run a lot of tests with AI-only playing and those do not show too significant dominance or inferiority of certain factions. You haven't found blackarchons faction-mod? Imho it is a very good example...

Re: Multiplayer games only letting me in as spectator

That spectator thing is weird. Are all factions already assigned maybe? That's the only reason why the game should make you spectator. But usually when you start a new game no factions should be assigned yet. I unfortunately only can test and fix stuff in the add-on. You said you have it but haven't...

Re: Game crashing after it upgraded to 1.4.4 Previously work

I'll inform Sephirok to look at this.
I only have been messing around with the Eclipse of Nashira DLC and so don't know what could have possibly gone wrong with the vanilla-game.
One of the most important files from the game simply going missing cannot be that hard to fix for them.

Re: Game crashing after it upgraded to 1.4.4 Previously work

It says that the file "PandoraServer.exe" cannot be found. This is extremely weird. Can you look into the game's binaries-folder if it really is not there?

Can you put the error-message in a Zip-file? Image-formats like jpg or png should also work.

Re: Is the AI in 1.6.0 too peaceful?

You can also test 1.6.1 as beta on the beta-branch.
It has the aggression-improvements aswell.

So it should be suiteable for a comparison.

Re: Is the AI in 1.6.0 too peaceful?

Also, the ability to add more AI players would be fantastic! I'll probably revisit the game-setup-dialogue again. What I also could do in the meantime is make an ugly-version as inofficial-patch on Civforum, where you simply can add all the factions. I guess most players would consider that more im...

Re: Is the AI in 1.6.0 too peaceful?

Thank you for your feedback! "using 1.6 + your 27-May patch" => Currently the version from steam is newer than my May-27-patch. It's from june 1st. But unless you installed after that, steam should have overwritten the older version automatically. However, I hope I can make a new custom patch today ...

Re: Is the AI in 1.6.0 too peaceful?

Sure. Btw. this forum has a very cool feature for poll-creators:
You can allow users to change their opinion.
This is what I did.

Also: While waiting for results I can conduct experiments anyways. ^^

Is the AI in 1.6.0 too peaceful?

I'd like to start a poll on this issue. Simple question: Is the AI too peaceful in 1.6.0 I personally think it is but I'd rather have some more feedback on that. From what I've gotten as feedback on 1.6.0 I heared: "Yeah the AI is good at beating me... with science-victory. Wars are extremely rare, ...

Re: Getting AI to like you in First Contact?

I haven't looked up how exactly the armysize is determined but I think it is something along the lines of adding up the production-cost of all military units while taking their health into account. For example: 2 Basic Colonial-Troopers would be 2 x 8 = 16 armysize. 2 Basic Colonial-Troopers where o...

Re: Getting AI to like you in First Contact?

I will give a little more detailed answer on how exactly it works in 1.6.0, as it has been changed quite significantly over how it worked before. First thing to notice is that the relationship is only one of several things that are factored into whether an AI declares war or not. However, it is quit...

Re: My journey of improving the AI

I'll do the specialization-thing first. It's the easiest and at the same time the one that I guess has the greatest overall benefit. The most important about it is that food and minerals are preferably harvested in cities without any terrain-modifier-bonus on either science or production so that no ...

Re: New Let's Play with 1.6.0

I see there's more poll results now.

But not only have I already started, I also have already ended the game with a ... well watch part 4.

So i'll use the further results of this poll as the base for the next one. ^^

Re: No Spy Standalone (useable with 1.5.5 Beta)

This mod is incompatible with 1.6.0 and, in my opinion, also no longer needed since the spies have been toned down enough to not feel as brokenly imbalanced as they did before.
