Re: Quick play guide

I have both edited my previous post in this thread and made a signature with (I hope) proper release statements. If you need the wording changed, let me know. Looks good, however, in my apparently slightly dazed state of mind I've missed this statement on the license page (sorry :oops:): The conten...

Re: Quick play guide

Bulgroz can you edit your post (or indeed signature as I have done) to assert you release your contribution under the Creative Commons licence Free Orion uses? Um, the contents of the Wiki are release under the GNU Free Documentation License 1.2 , see the license page . So we need a license stateme...

Re: About 3 Weeks in....New Player feedback

it's a small handful of people taking care of all this, purely as a hobby, so there is a large backlog of ideas waiting for follow-up. Yeah, I grok that. My understanding is it is the job of testers (this is the play-testing feedback subforum!) to be annoying and raise any issue they can think of a...

Re: Quick play guide

In this thread MatGB said about the Quick Play Guide: On the other hand I can edit it, so if anyone else writes up a paragraph and says "replace paragraph #X with this" I can copy it in fairly quickly. Right, here are a couple of suggestions. Bear in mind they are based on what little I have played ...

Re: System Nova'ed - Nothing In Sitrep

Now you have that savegame, another issue with it: At some point, well along in the game, input in the "Design Name" field was sort of doubled, i.e. if typing "Robot" the result is "RRoobboott"". This is on the Ship Design window. The "Description" field just below works as it should, it is only the...

Re: System Nova'ed - Nothing In Sitrep

Sorry if I'm double-posting, Vezzra posted while I was answering AndrewW. If you like, I can upload a savegame displaying these errors. Yes, please, that would certainly help our resident AI expert to investigate the issue. This is the savegame just after that first Nova Bomb went off. There appears...

Re: System Nova'ed - Nothing In Sitrep

Would you still have it in an autosave? If you have that enabled and haven't gone past it yet. Unfortunately no, autosave goes back 10 turns and I played 94 turns since that nova already. But as previously mentioned I could create a just-before-Dragon-Nova situation with only a little work so I can...

Re: System Nova'ed - Nothing In Sitrep

OK, I'll take a look at the files you mention and give it a go. Have patience please. Is there a sitrep given if a player or an AI Novas a system? Perhaps it would make sense if I reused that one for the Dragon Nova. I can see how it would have been nice to have preserved the save from the turn just...

System Nova'ed - Nothing In Sitrep

SVN 7809 Win32 on Win7 64 bit. This occurred: There was a system with 2 gas giants (one with an outpost of mine which had a Nova Bomb Activator), a fleet of mine (which did not have any Nova Bombs) and a Cosmic Dragon. After finishing the turn there was a sitrep detailing combat between my fleet and...

Re: About 3 Weeks in....New Player feedback

Concerning the Quick Play Guide, if it was my todo list I should prioritise it as I am guessing many people who start playing will install the game, start a new game while looking in the Quick Play Guide and only later turn to the forums or various search engines. So together with the game itself, t...

About 3 Weeks in....New Player feedback

Playing SVN 7809 Win32 on Win7 64-bit. TL;DR: I love it! but have a comment or two. So I started out using those single player game options which came out of the box. After all I've played 4X games on and off since Civilisation came out (I forget if there was anything before) so did not expect to ne...

Changelog location

Hullo there, I started playing FreeOrion a few days ago on build 7809 (which I got off SourceForge) and I love it so far! I'm getting my butt handed to me on a platter by the AI (this is fine with me!)...but I digress and will post in the play-testing feedback forum soonish about all this. Right now...
