Not much stuff to build other than ships?

That'll sound like a dumb question but stay with me. When playing FreeOrion, the first thing I notice is that there aren't many buildings to build compared to other games in the 4X genre. Even when compared to MOO2. There's a ton of technologies unlocking bonuses. Take all the food/growth technologi...

Re: 4.6 issues on Windows 10

Hi Vezzra,

Yes, 0.4.5 works fine on my system.

I'm willing to try a few test builds and see how it goes. I'll let you know in which one the issue appeared.

Update:

(build 2015-09-08.0868ed4) Works fine.
(build 2015-09-14.5507da9) Has the glitch.

Re: 4.6 issues on Windows 10

also on Windows 7 and having the same issue. Same for me. Haven't played for ages, so I installed the latest stable. I can't see the mouse pointer. When starting a game, the pointer is invisible, and most icons in the top menus are flickering. I have Windows 7, and an Intel HD3000. Hope this helps.

Re: My Introduction

Sounds good!

I usually play in English, but I'll switch to French and see what I can suggest or improve, if anything!

Thanks for the heads up!

Equivalent of the Orion Star System

I'm wondering if there's currently in FreeOrion, a star system that is similar to the Orion star system in MOO? A single planet system with a big bonus, guarded by an ancient guardian.

It might be something that makes the gameplay richer, without making things much more complicated.

UI Suggestion: Species Selection Screen

Last time I started a new game, I noticed the following. I have trouble selecting the species I want because it's hard to analyse all their special abilities side by side. Each species has it's abilities in an overlay. I could be more intuitive. I want to suggest the following, so that the idea can ...

Re: My Introduction

Haven't visited or played much of FreeOrion in the last year, and didn't try 0.4.5 before yesterday. You guys did some pretty good work. I played quite a few other 4X games in the mean time, so I'll try to contribute a bit more by suggesting stuff I think would be nice additions to the game's alread...

Re: Screenshots

Hi,

I can't seem to be able to modify pages in the Wiki.

Do you need to create me an account manually to allow me to edit pages? Or would you prefer that I submit screenshots here ?

Thanks.

Re: usful ship hulls

I think some sort of star base hull would be great to create an orbiting defense force in a system that can attack intruders (which means it has external slots for weapons), but can't move.

Re: General Feedback after several times playing

Regarding the lag, after how many turns do you start to experience it more seriously? I recently switched from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 14.04, the computer is the same. Boom. Up to now, the lag is a 100% gone. I'm not sure why, but I didn't get any lag yet during very long games (300-500+ turns) on the s...

Re: Am I the only one who never won a game?

Thank you for your good advice. I was able to win my first game tonight with the Chato on a young galaxy of 48 systems. I was a bit worried at the beginning because I was able to see an enemy fleet building up a few systems from my empire. But I was able to upgrade the defense attributes of my borde...

Re: Splitting Category: Ships

I suppose it could be split into an offensive category and a space travel category. I believe it could work that way. It's true that the ship category is huge.

Re: What to do about Infrastructure?

I believe that infrastructure shouldn't matter much more than affecting the speed at which a planet's meters can change, adjust. More infra = faster meter adjustment. It would affect how quick the population grows, how quick prod/research meters increase/decrease between turns when needed. Same with...

Am I the only one who never won a game?

I've been playing FreeOrion for quite a while without actually experiencing victory once. Not even once. I'm used to how things work game-play wise, but I can't get to stop the AI from invading my empire with gigantic and unstoppable fleets when things get more serious. I always get my ass kicked by...
