Re: Seventeenth game on the multiplayer slow game server

[...], he's right that its adoption went unusually quickly (proposed October 30 and merged October 31 if I understand correctly), which for an addition with heavy effects on game balance is probably not the way to go. The field effects were at time of merging (ofc) impromptu and meant to be adapted...

Re: Seventeenth game on the multiplayer slow game server

I won't play until meteor blizzards are reverted. This mechanics is unbalanced, dumb, stands against freeorion's philosophy and was added by a single person w/o any prior discussion. L29Ah, a suitable thread for discussion is here ( https://freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=11404 ) and you're...

Re: collecting ideas for new fields

Could you please post them there so I can try them with the various fields I created ? No, don't wanna use graphics I'm n ot content with. But I can make new ones, at least for some of your suggested fields. And if you dabble with other graphics than Fields, I would need some icons too... I should ...

Re: collecting ideas for new fields

My laborious efforts with GIMP were not very successful in producing graphics that are both distinctive enough and blending well with the general Galaxy graphics, but I don't believe that I can do better. I do believe that at least the Comet Cloud is strategically interesting, though. How's that fo...

It is a conscious decision to create only original content, rather than copying.

He appeared once on Github maybe half a year ago, but hasn't been around again since AFAIK.

Re: Turn processing/stages

Where can I find the piece/s of code or documentation to learn about what is processed when on each turn? I need answers to stuff like "do all effects apply before or after invasion orders?", "if I order an invasion before pressing 'Turn 100', the invasion happens on turn 100 or turn 101 (LastTurnA...

Re: In-person developers meeting/hackfest

I think most of the currently active developers, including me, reside in Germany. That's interesting, I hadn't realized it was so concentrated. How did that come about? Did some of you know the others and bring them into the project? I don't think so, it may be just chance If nobody else steps up t...

Re: In-person developers meeting/hackfest

Where do you and Vezzra reside? I wouldn't mind taking charge of organising an event. I could get a good venue in Liverpool, UK without cost: https://doesliverpool.com/services/host-your-own-events/ But perhaps it would be better to have it on the (European) continent if most of the people who are ...

Re: In-person developers meeting/hackfest

Vezzra and I had mused about a "FO-Con" a while back, meaning a weekend-spanning (?) event. While meeting in person may not betremendously productive, at least it would be very fun. However, I don't see myself being able to take charge of organising such a thing anytime soon. But I would attend for ...

Yes, that sounds better. Not a native speaker. Anyway, that's just a bunch of crude, random ideas.
