Multiplayer Co-Habitation

It would be nice to have an option of starting in the same system but on a different class planet as the other human player. We play truly cooperatively and think that it might be fun to each have opposite environments so that we can both fully colonize each system quickly. It would allow our fleets...

Re: Direct Serial Connect

Got the crossover ethernet cable and direct-connect works just fine. We have to disconnect from the wireless to start a game over the wire, then we reconnect to the wireless for using the internet on the side. The cable maintains the game when the internet is dropped out by the microwave being used....

Re: FreeOrion NOT listed on wikipedia.org

Yeah, I think about it now and see that is the case. My entry to FreeOrion was through a google search for 'master orion remake' and freeorion.org was the top link, so I guess it's in my head that way from google. My bad, but probably a common enough misconception.

FreeOrion NOT listed on wikipedia.org

Just noticed that the MoO2 page at wikipedia doesn't reference FreeOrion, and neither does the List of video game remakes. I don't think I am the person to try and advert FO, so I'm just sayin...

Re: Minor Species Wrangler

The ability to 'tame' a Dyson tree and use it as a space station, or to fly into battle with a worm in your fleet to help you do battle. Different minor species have the ability to 'tame' different types of monsters so ships made on their worlds attain the ability to try to tame wildlife.

Re: Scissor and Rift

Would be nasty to force it build-able on your home-world only - 'kill me and I scorch the earth around me' tactic. Severe restrictions on implementation seem logical though. Alien Crossfire has the 'Fusion Bomb' that wipes out a whole city and blasts the land away, and other games have similar Doom ...

Re: About the Galaxy Seeds

The Galaxy Setup screen always keeps every settings from the last played game, including the seed. By keeping the seed, it allows you to play on the same exact map as you did in your previous game. It would be useful if this were also the case for multi-player games. I actually prefer to start sing...

Re: Difficulty seeing number of turns for fleet move

I'm playing around inside of the UI settings to see if I can make all things easier to read; Menu; options; UI tab - scroll down to font sizes. I wonder if adjusting any of the few available options would be of value in this case - mainly for a visual separation on the screen, or if perhaps adding m...

Re: Downloadable Pedia

Sure would be great to have the pedia as an app in my phone for easy reference and studying while I'm away from my computer. EDIT: I found Python3 app for Win8 Phone , and wondered how hard the script would be to display the Pedia. It's probably pages of code, but for all I know it may be only a doz...

feedback on 0.4.4 r8050

EDIT: You want it clearer than mud, eh? Ok. A minor re-write. I am currently trying to break this stable build in as many ways possible so that I can understand better exactly how the game engine works. So in the future I will be able to spot truly unique bugs when I encounter them. And it's fun too...

Minor Species Wrangler

The Dyson Forest is practically there now - have a tech for 'capturing' the Dyson Forest Seeds and domesticating them into stations. That does sound kind of fun, perhaps as a special trait for some minor species-- only ships manned by them could use such a "floater wrangler" part, and it probably s...

Re: Research tree - highlight theories

Preset research paths. As a new player I want to grow - so I check the growth box and the game automatically researches ONLY techs that facilitate growth, until I click on the defense box and the it switches to researching techs geared towards that, until I click the next box and then it goes in the...
