Re: Steam Release?

the downsides that i see is that they would need to give a cut to steam, and at the same time have at least a person in charge of dealing with steam relations/issues. hence an increased cost of doing business. the cost of increasing business means more people posting on their forums and bugging them...

Re: Steam Release?

well said, i guess there is only the fact that slitherine studios was mentioned quite a bit on spike via a program call deadliest warrior (at least for the first 2 seasons), though whether or not this is the same slitherine, or if they had any input, i am unsure. they aren't entirely unknown, which ...

Re: Will there ever be a manual?

try the ingame civilopedia equivalent, in any civ like game it is vastly more useful than the manual.

Re: Water related suggestions

i think the game needs to last a bit longer before that becomes a real option, but ya oceans are easily ignored at this point in time. i hope that when they make pandora 2 that ocean is given serious consideration, unlike pretty much every 4x game out there (aside from SMAC and CtP1).

Re: 100% Research Fail

i think changing it so that you need to get ahead by a certain amount (or a percentage) is the optimal fix over messing with what info is given to other players. it always sucks to lose when you think you are winning. i started to feel like i was losing if i wasn't massively dominating in the scienc...

Re: New Unique Faction Traits

well any faction can plop down a forest and gain the antipollution benefit from a tile they wouldn't bother to work anyway. if you have plains that give 1 food you can plop down a farm and get more food from it than you would a forest, hills with mines match TS forests for minerals, so mountains wit...

Re: New Unique Faction Traits

well in general the issue with the factions is that their bonuses tend to get diluted during the game, so i would give bonuses to each faction when they research certain faction related techs, like when terra salvum researches fungus cultivation they stop taking damage from fungus, when they researc...

Re: Turning off population growth

early on in the game i have to clear out hives, i expand prior to the natives turning hostile, and after i have cleared out most of the hives in my area (so as to get the waves of xenos from killing my new cities and colonizers). this means that i have plenty of 'dead' time with my production, as i ...

Re: Faction Balance Discussion and Feedback

i think the refit refund of 50% is good for the Togra, plus give them +50% vision of the tech tree (instead of seeing the next 2 advances you'd see 3). they seem to able to snowball as well as (or slightly better) than SD, so if they need anything more i'd give them a boost to their headquarters (ex...

Re: Faction Balance Discussion and Feedback

i would prefer that the other factions get buffed to be at Solar Dynasty level, so that they end up playing very different than each other, instead of nerfing the factions so they have less bonuses. i think that Terra Salvum should get +1 to food and minerals for forests, and the fungus bonus should...
