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

So I think that other things are more important. Well if no one is going to bother working on this issue then I may as well remove the game from my hard drive. I'm not about to micromanage unit movement one tile at a time. I find the pathfinding in the game to be horrid in general and just don't wa...

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

If you could fix the issue with stack movement, where units within one will decide to head off in different directions, I might be inclined to play this game again. Otherwise it will just take up space on my hard drive and it will be the first game to be removed if I need the room.

That's not Civilization 4, the Spy unit was never removed.

Re: You still haven't fixed that?

That's exactly what happened to me in my first post on this issue, I had lost a Colonizer because it became separated from it's escort. The only option is to move them one tile at a time when it's apparent that the way is clear, which is far too much micromanagement for me. It just makes the game a ...

Belanos, if it weren't for people like you making constructive and mature posts like this I don't even know where this forum would be! Thank you!

You still haven't fixed that?

Quite some time ago I pointed out a flaw in stack movement, where when a path is blocked a unit will go in one direction and another will take a completely different route. One of the devs, I forget who, mentioned that this was indeed a problem and that it would be looked into. But lo and behold, ju...

What's up with the updater?

I just ran the game's updater to see if anything new had been added and it kept failing on me and I wasn't able to connect to the servers. Does anyone have any info on this? Are Proxy's servers down? And if so, is that a permanent situation?

Re: terrain raising/lowering

Request: allow the amphibious former to be used as a weapon by submerging someone else's coastal land. even without drowning a city, it would drastically change resource collection. I'm not sure if I agree with that. The human player is much more likely to use that ability better than the AI, makin...

Re: Ruins

I personally feel that the number of ruins is just about right. I wouldn't want to have any more than there are now, in fact I wouldn't mind if there were even less. Though not by much.

Re: Faction Balance Discussion and Feedback

Terra Salvum is certainly the most underperforming faction. That's certainly not been my experience. Until I adjusted their alien aggression values, there were several games that they were the only ones to survive the alien onslaught. They were guaranteed to be at least one of the survivors. And wh...

Re: XML schema files wanted

Change tier="1" in the /technologies/alienaggression.xml file. That moves the research into the mechanization era or research. Or, you can keep tier="0" but change subtier to "1" or "2" to move it further down the colonization tree while still staying in the colonization era. As far as cranking up ...

I'm not sure what that will do, but I'll try it.
Change the cost to, e.g., cost="128"
I don't understand what that's supposed to do. If it's instantly created at 32, what difference will the extra cost make?

Re: XML schema files wanted

but a quick and dirty workaround is to give yourself some extra cash, e.g. <credits add="32"/>, and just buy the advancement on your first move after colonizing. That's not what I'm trying to accomplish. I don't just want a freebie for myself, I want the AI to get it as well. I feel the -50% alien ...

Re: Faction Balance Discussion and Feedback

Right now, the aliens are a big wildcard because the AI simply is not very good at handling them. I've noticed the AI do exceptionally poorly against aliens I agree. In every game I play, at least 3 of them get wiped out. If they can't be programmed to do better against them, they should at least g...

Re: Growth discussion

I disagree with the fact that food should affect growth at all (except negatively if food is in short supply). Which is the point I was trying to make. If you run out of food completely your entire city starts to dwindle each turn. But even if you still have some sort of surplus, having a deficit i...
