None of our games are showing up in the search right now, and the "Specials" and "Coming Soon" tabs are no longer present on the front page... I assume they're just in some kind of site transition right now

Yea, I'm sure those will be cheesable out the wazoo. But it's advanced enough and probably fun enough that that's fine, the nerf will eventually comeQuoteLightning Torpedoes (spawned by Lightning Torpedo Frigates) can now be given direct commands from the player.
As I understand it, the batch explore will, lets say, build 20 scout mk2s, and then just issue the auto explore for them?I did actually implement a scout-picket equivalent setting but it's a lot more fiddly to work with so I commented it back out. Basically there are two things we'd want it to do to be properly automated:
I dont suppose it would be possible to set up a modified picket order?
What I am looking to do is automate putting up single scout pickets on planets 2+ away or so. In theory, all I want this to so is to group move the entire set of scouts to a planet that needs picketing. After all scouts have arrived, and stopped, it then leaves one behind and repeats this order.
Probably a lot more difficult to implement then that, but its something that would likely save me a lot of time (up to date scout intel is super important)
Oh and Keith you gave the Raptor a 5 bonus instead of the 6 you posted.Haha, oops. It's just a typo in the release notes, 5x is what it needs to be to give the relative percentages listed. If Raptors weren't cloaked (and blazing fast) I'd go for 6x and maybe some more base dps, but as it is that'd be a bit much.
In know on paper the grenade launcher has gotten a massive boost, but until swarmer ships are balanced so they are not just a box of tissues to soak the tears of my cpu I don't think they will truly shine.The grenade launcher will also counter fighters (Light hull type).
Eh, sacrifice a planet or two for the sake of the galaxy. I don't mind. It's acceptable losses. I mean really, how many people are living on that one cracked lava-covered planet?Possibly some very displeased Spire. Were, at least. Now they have rather more free time.
You do bring up a good point. The AI's stuff is all outside of the galaxy... I feel like after winning a game, you should be allowed to send Mark III nukes into the exo-galactic wormhole.Speaking of some very displeased Spire with a sudden influx of free time.
I was thinking of strategies, but then I started thinking too hard.When the "his planets" in question are in your galaxy, and all his truly important stuff is in other galaxies?
"What if I convince my enemy to nuke his OWN planets with the nukes that he shoots at MY planets?"
Comic Sans all the wayIf only it had a sense of humor.
Looks good! Unfortunately, I have been temporarily captured by Skyrim, so it will be a little while before I try all of these outI guess we need to arrange for a little Labyrinth+Yggdrasil accident in Whiterun?
Keith, is it intended that Dire Guardians can be chosen for exos if Dire Guardians are off in the game settings?The game setting is actually called "Dire Guardian Lairs" and that's what you're turning on/off. The Dire Guardians being eligible for exos is a separate thing. Though each AI only gets 3 types of Dire Guardian randomly chosen at the beginning of the game, with more added at higher AIP (so if you're playing a 4000 AIP FS game then it will presumably have them all available).
The nuke-on-death effect doesn't actually increase AIP does it? You could totally abuse special forces avengers if you could kill them. ...then again, they could totally abuse YOU.Yea, I think that would be a mutually abusive relationship.
It's sort of a way to build a "scout factory" that sends scouts on automated scout runs. You'll still have to micro them to get the full map, but it sounds like some of the busy work is removed, as long as you don't mind some set up? I haven't tried it yet, and it clearly is one of those little hidden expert features that will take some time to mature.It can get the full map for you if you clear enough of the enemy tachyon sentinels and whatnot. Basically it's just like this:
The complaining on the Steam forum is going to be epic.I'm trying to figure out a suitable combination of the word "Complaint" and the word "Ragnarok".
