Sneak past them using the flux hull line.
Now this is an option I was not aware of. Is this different from stealth, or can it be done with any stealthy ships? What is the detection strength (not range) of a sentry? Or a maintenance ship?

I hope you will show us at least some of the fighting spirit that the previous losers had :twisted:
Indeed. I will do my best.

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server

So, tips on cheapest way to take out a sentry. They have flak cannon so I assume fighters are out? Need six shots with MD4, so that's two robotic hulls with three each? Or one such hull, which will have single-digit hp left after two rounds of combat. Anything cheaper than that? It's good that we ca...

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server

Possibly the worst start ever, certainly the worst I have ever had personally: 1. Homeworld on its own - this is normal, you're lucky to get anything else in your home system. 2. Only one starlane - this is pretty normal too, given small galaxy and need to separate players. 3. Deep space next door -...

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server

Sorry folks, I am not capable of playing sub-optimally. If you want me not to build hundreds of comsats, upgrade to a version with that pullreq!

Edit: I am of course capable of screwing up, I just mean I cannot make myself do suboptimal things. I have no honour. Sorry!

Ship designs gone next turn

Hi all, Playing 4f372cb with two friends using the longturn server, and we have this weird recurring bug. None of us can build gravity hulls or titanic hulls, even though the AI is doing so! When we research them, the hull appears in the list. We can design a ship and add it to finished designs. We ...

Awesome! Looking forward to a new start.

Are we going to have any friendly rules about comsats this time or just go crazy within the limits of the game again?
Did we include the pullreq that makes them take 4 turns not 3, and cost twice as much? That should sort it out.

Re: Fifth game of the multiplayer slow game server

Cool - it's great to see the graphs after the game ends! (How do you turn them on? I didn't think you could edit that setting in a savegame?) I'd like to say a big thank you to team AllerswaqCST for such spirited play - but I hope you will agree that MVP must go to TheSilentOne for holding off two o...

Re: Fifth game of the multiplayer slow game server

Sadly I think the server has crashed so we may not see the results of said sneak attack! I can see the lobby but it never goes to the game ...

Re: Fifth game of the multiplayer slow game server

I've been studying blockading and I think I may have found a bug. swaq's final fleet arrived from the west at Mze A this turn, and it fought a combined fleet of me+o01eg. This turn his surviving ships are blockaded and cannot move south to Draco, but they can move east to Hydros Alpha. WTF? How is ...

Re: Fifth game Rigel Combat

I can't find a way to copy the combat log. Due to the number of comsats, fighters, and troopships involved, it would take 6 screenshots to post it here as images. The basic summary is: Most of the troop ships, comsats, and fighters died, leaving them with more big ships left than i had. But, the pl...

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server

I feel a bit bad about the detailed empires data - it would be really nice if we didn't have graphs, but without that nasty bug/outcome where you can't see if your enemy has upgraded his weapons until you've researched them. I had a recollection that these were already two separate options, but now...
