Re: Questions

I am considering purchasing this game and have some questions: 1. Are there any technologies involving "psionics, psychic stuff, etc."? If so, is it really necessary to research them? Is there a description of all the technologies in the game that I can view before purchasing the game? 2. Are there...

Re: Maximum Map size

Another consideration is the growth model in late game. Right now, the growth number needed for a new person increases with each pop....until it hits 120, then it remains static for the rest of the game. What happens then is the population number surges and you get a very very fast spike in producti...

Re: Maximum Map size

This is straying slightly off topic but still relevant: I want to reiterate that the end-game techs (late Mechanization and all of Transcendance Era techs) remain too inexpensive. Population grows exponentially and much faster than the costs of techs do. When the game opens, there could easily be s...

Re: How does combat work?

Ok, everything Zakor says tracks with what I thought, I didn't know what the random factor was though, great to know! I wanted to check an example to ensure I am on the right page. 1) I have a 4 strength unit with a +50% bonus for factors vs a strength 2 unit (no bonuses). So the combat is 4*(1+.5) ...

Re: Error (1.3.5)

I get this with my norton antivirus. I found when I went to history and restored the pandora.exe it fixed the problem. That said, bottom line is this a problem for your steam window, you can't expect people to just turn their antivirus off. Can be more specific as to what you did? I'm tryin'! :) Fo...

An easy way to streamline diplomacy

This is one area that I think could take out some annoying clicks for diplomacy. For the AI, it would be great if when asked for tribute or wanted to give you a gift, instead of you having to go to a brand new screen to see the amount, the amount could be displayed with the original offer. Its one l...

Shouldn't EMP blast disable defense buildings?

So I got to try out EMP blast for the first time in a game.

Color me disappointed when I realized that the beam didn't do the main thing I expected it to do, disable the defense buildings within the city.

This makes the EMP strike pretty weak in my opinion. What are others experiences with it?

How does combat work?

I think I understand the high levels of combat, but I am looking for the nitty gritty details. How is damage calculated, how does that damage adjust health (and subsequent strength), how are win rates determined, etc

Re: 1.3.4 First thoughts

Far more importantly than this particular improvement, though, I simply don't understand how SephiRok (or the rest of you, for that matter) doesn't appear to take more offense with the credit/morale issue I outlined earlier. As was shown by SephiRok's calculations, morale outputs a good deal more $...

Re: 1.3.4 First thoughts

So after many games on 1.3.5 here are my general thoughts: 1) I like the new academy buildings. They are high priority on my list to build now. I will say that the AI does not seem to be using them much. My units are almost always out ranking the baseline AI units. 2) I think the new field training ...

Re: 1.3.4 First thoughts

I personally do not find the energy park to be too weak. The fact that you don't needs workers to operate them is a major major advantage. I can take a small city and put up parks to get some cash in the short term. Now once the workers are up I would consider replacing them, but they have a solid u...

Bug: Hellfire Strength bonus not reflected in the Workshop

The strength value associated to a unit is not properly using the hellfire's base combat strength (+25%) when in the workshop area. For example, a trooper with hellfire (+25%) and titanium armor (+50%), should show a base strength of 3.5 (2 * (1+.25+50)). It instead shows a strength of 2.6. If you s...

Graphics Request: Easier to see Roads

I find roads a bit hard to see on certain terrain (jungles/forests especially). Sometimes I will put a former on a tile to "road it" and find I already have a road there.

A small graphics update who be quite nice.

Re: 1.3.4 First thoughts

After finishing a few games to the late game, I will also say that the new growth model makes late game cities grow VERY FAST. I couldn't keep up with food even with all 3 food buildings because my cities would grow so quickly. I got to size 60 cities and the like.

Re: 1.3.4 First thoughts

I haven't played the latest betas yet but I see one glaring problem (above many other potential problems) with this latest version, and that is the 5% morale growth system. Togra University, which is possibly already the weakest faction due to precisely their morale penalty, is now even worse off. ...

Re: 1.3.4 Access Violation Error

I loaded the patch and started my game from the last crash point. It worked! Everytime I tried that previously it crashed at the same spot so I think it is fixed.

Re: Crash to desktop v1.3.2

I noted the same issue in the Pandora Beta forum as well, logs are attached there.

In both cases it happened to me, I was in battle and just went to hit end turn. I heard an error sound and the please wait icon on the right greyed out. And then the error came up.

Re: 1.3.4 Access Violation Error

sorry here it is. btw, your upload limit for a file is 256. My rar file with best compression just squeaked under that, so I recommend relaxing the limit slightly, or you will get less logs uploaded.
