Re: [6931] Psychic Domination

I have not tried this yet, but it sounds like quite a strong nerf to Psychic Domination. I would suggest increasing the chance of taking control of ships. In this new model it will only be usefull in defence, or after you have a foothold in a new system. I feel at least 20% is needed to make it viab...

Re: Splitting Category: Ships

I was thinking about posting a diff, and looked into how to make one, but believe I need a few pointers to get that started ;-) For instance, would I need to compile the code to produce a diff, or do I just need to get SVN going? Is there a link to where this is explained somewhere? I used Wordpad t...

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

Another genre of tips: Choose a Setup that the AI is bad at, most notably that would be sparse galaxies, i.e. low amount of planets and starlanes. Play around with the Galaxy Setup a bit. Choose a race that is strong for that setup. If you choose a very small Galaxy, like the one you described in yo...

Splitting Category: Ships

Hi! For new players the tech tree is quite confusing, especially when it comes to research relating to ships. One way to make this easier, that would benefit all players, is to split the category 'Ships', in two: 'Ship Hulls', and 'Ship Parts'. After such a split, both of the new categories are the ...

New to Free Orion

Hi all! I just wanted to introduce myself. I started playing FO at the start of April and have enjoyed playing it quite a lot :-) I also like modding, and have already started tinkering on my own, with the vision of helping out the community. I have studied Computer Science, but never worked as a pr...

Re: [Patch] Unarmed fleets should not be aggressive by defau

While on this subject: What irritates me the most regarding this is the opposite, that the automatic setting always reverts to 'Hide'. I frequently have ships sent to catch enemies just to let them go instead of fighting them. Note that you can currently click on the icon on the new fleet drop pane...

Re: Multi-screen typing bug

Hi! I've had this same bug in one game. Playing FO 7064, on Win7. Nothing special with monitors, in my mind it was due to lag. I was playing a rather big game, something like 300 systems, and mid or high planets, and was late in the game. Everything was starting to go slow, and then even typing desi...
