Re: Help With 4890

It's not the same as industry or research. (and neither are a bunch of other foci you can unlock with techs) You simply set it to "growth" and the maximum possible population of connected planets (of the right sort of species) increases. Your preconceptions are blinding you to the way this works. W...

Re: Help With 4890

The same way it survives without plumbing -- we simply do not simulate it much. Planets with certain specials, and all homeworlds have access to the "growth" focus. It allows connected planets (with the right kind of species) to have higher populations. This replaces "food", but is general enough t...

Help With 4890

I know there has a been a major code change and im a little confused. Could someone explain the new changes for me? I cant quite get my head round how my empire survives without food? Does this mean that 'trade' now works? So that we now presume that all foodstuffs are taken care of with a merchant ...

Re: Glitchy Super-Fast Planet Rotation

Why would one of the moderators change the topic title of this post? I would and did not post such a tile, it comes across as insulting, I may not be the sharpest tool in the box but I know not to post topics with titles like the one my post has now.

Dude your link to the image should be an 18+ ... Those were not the big round planets I thought Id see :lol: Sorry about that. I figured we are mature enough to ignore the ads.

Glitchy Super-Fast Planet Rotation

WinXP 32bit 4747 TestBuild In the Menkalinan system is a Gas Giant, Menkalinan II, Its rotation is so fast it makes me dizzy watching it (okay I know, dont watch it). Sphere has no specials or anything that I can see that would cause it. Save file: http://www.mediafire.com/?ja2f582w25f224c Darkspire

Re: Orbital Generation Problem

Mongo III also requires a industry focus, according to buildings.txt. I suppose that someone should modify the stringtable accordingly. Thanks that worked. As a workaround till its fixed I just altered the focus from INDUSTRY to RESEARCH and it showed up. Hope they fix this for the next build, its ...

Orbital Generation Problem

WinXP 32 bit V.4733 If you look in the Mongo system I have set Mongo I and II to Industry. When I move the mouse over the cog to see the breakdown my Gas Generator on Mongo III (Gas Giant) doesn't appear in the breakdown (no tech 'Orbital Generation' or even a mention of the Gas Generator), I waited...

Re: Can't load saves in v4720

Have you managed to find the problem? Similar crashes while loading have come and gone for no apparent reason, so I think it was not a code problem, but a random result of rebuilding things too many times. Thanks, Ill wait for a new build then, just been up in the loft and found Reach For The Stars...

At the moment im using v4666 but as your aware you cant design ships without a crash, that crash has been fixed (?) in v4720 but cant use that as you cant save :lol:

Looks like its back to SEV for a bit :(

Re: Problem with 4720

I can't look at your save due to fiddling with loading code to try to fix save / load problems, but there are some specials that change planet rotation speed in the GUI... Your right, I was so busy looking at the planet I didnt look at the special, all the planets with the lack of rotation have spe...
