Re: [AAR] Solar Destiny (PAUSED)

Clearly, that didn't work out, and I'm a bad person for taking this long to give an update. I'm sorry. I haven't forgotten about this, but I won't give a date for when I'll start up again, as I don't know when that'll be. Paused indefinitely; I'll revisit the situation after the holidays. Sorry abou...

Re: [AAR] Solar Destiny (PAUSED)

~ Pause ~

Terribly sorry about this, been rather busy lately. I should have "paused" earlier, but I kept telling myself I'd come back soon, and the days just went by.

I'll hopefully be resuming the AAR this weekend, or early next week.

Re: Why don't you sell this game on Greenmangaming?

But Greenmangaming is not a platform, it is just a reseller. By "platform", I'm fairly certain Iain meant " digital distribution platform ". GoG, GamersGate and Desura all only have download clients, same as GMG. Except theirs don't use SecuROM. GMG is a digital distribution platform. Don't confuse...

Re: Why don't you sell this game on Greenmangaming?

1) There is already a thread discussing alternative distribution platforms ( Steam Release? ). Don't let the name fool you, it's not just about Steam. The short answer to your question (from that thread): Thanks for the posts but we have a strategy which has worked well for the last 13 years and we...

Re: What's next?

No promises from my end. As much as I'd like to be able to say "Yes, I'll do it!", I know myself well enough not to make such a promise. I have the bad habit of being gung-ho about things, but have no discipline or staying power. Especially with my AAR, which is already behind schedule (I haven't up...

Re: What's next?

Yeah, I really did mean to start by just giving some initial thoughts and impression... but next thing I knew, I was already multiple hours into my first game. Guess that's a good thing, really! A thread about new factions is a good idea. That should be done for each major aspect, really. As nice as...

Re: What's next?

You mean an expansion or post-release patch?. Pretty much. Since they mentioned they still have a lot of plans and ideas, I was wondering what was in the works. We're still in release-mode right now, so not a lot of development is being done. Some fixes and tweaks will come probably soonish, we wou...

Re: Well, this is awkward...

You should have received a confirmation email when you actually got into the beta (I'm assuming, based on personal experience), maybe you missed it? Or perhaps there was a glitch in the matrix. Regardless of what happened, exactly, I doubt Proxy Studios/Slitherine would mind terribly if you used the...

Re: [AAR] Solar Destiny (Turn 36)

That makes sense, guess I'll move on to 6-turn updates, then.

Hope you enjoy the game! If you have any questions, do ask. :)

What's next?

It might be a bit too early to be asking this, and I understand if you don't yet have/want to give an answer...

But on the off-chance you do have something to say on the subject, out of curiosity, what's next? Both in terms of what and when.

Re: [AAR] Solar Destiny (Turn 36)

I really don't... I have no idea what I'm doing. ;) Though as I go along, I'll still be talking about strategy and mechanics when I feel the situation calls for it, but I'm talking more about pacing and details. For example, when I started, I made a point to mention whenever I gave a new build order...

Interlude

~ Interlude ~ And so ends our third year on Pandora. We have three cities, and our rivals only have one each. About City Growth: An interesting difference between Pandora and other 4X games is the tendency to build tall instead of wide; the AI doesn't expand much until a fair bit later, in general,...

3X Left

Fourth Quarter, 2109 (Turns 34, 35, 36) - October - We've got a pretty quiet end of the year ahead of us, no big surprises or changes. http://i.imgur.com/eEgvT27.jpg We've finished researching Automated Recycling, and now we move on to Fungus Cultivation. This will allow us to plant/cut down Fungus...

Re: Steam Release?

Origin...

HAHAHAHAHA.

That's all I'll say on that.

Steam's Offline Mode is far from perfect, sadly. If it makes you feel any better, though, they do plan to change it, as has been mentioned in this RPS article.

Re: Steam Release?

True, GoG would make a lot of sense, and its sales aren't nearly as crazy as Steam's.

Getting Pandora on GoG would be a great idea, and as soon as possible.

Re: Steam Release?

As much as I love Steam and would love to see Pandora on Steam, I don't think it's a good time for that yet. There are a few reasons for this: 1. With the Winter Sale just around the corner, a 25% sale would be expected, with bigger price-cuts for subsequent sales. By at least waiting until after th...

Re: Pandora: First Contact has officially been released! :D

Although that's technically correct, how often do people see "PC" and think "Oh, so they mean Personal Computers, as opposed to smartphones. I'm sure it works just as well on Windows, Linux and Mac!"? I've been a Mac-user for most of my computing life (though Windows lately due to gaming), and not o...

Re: [AAR] Solar Destiny (Turn 33)

Aye, there are some things that don't seem to be particularly clear in terms of their precise effects. The Planetary Council tech is a good example of this, although so is xenobiology and the Terra Salvum bonus to the duration of good relations with the alien natives. I presume that there's a fixed...

Re: [AAR] Solar Destiny (Turn 33)

I've a question about diplomacy though. In SMAC you're able to create a planetary council. I'm currently at the point in the game where I picked up the planetary government tech (or whatever it's called) and I had kinda expected something similar to that to start - I've already met all the differen...
