Re: Sci-Fi Book Recommendation: The Three-Body Trilogy

Characters feel more like sketches than real people (like in comics) and relations are often melodramatic and feel like manga. Cant read the original so I don't know how much got lost in the translation. I totally agree with you on your feeling about the characters. It's not the translation. AFAIK,...

Re: How to Enable Experimentor Always?

Thank Dev team for the clarification, I'm going to re-think about it and may do some constructive proposal later.

How to Enable Experimentor Always?

After played around 10 games I only encountered the Experimentor once, and as you developers see, I also caught a bug and reported it in GitHub.

So question is, is there a config option to enable it always to make each game more challenging?

Re: Sci-Fi Book Recommendation: The Three-Body Trilogy

Thank you very much, EnLightning. I didn't know this author. Now my mouth is watering. 谢谢你 :lol: No prob. I don't know how many friends here from North America, AFAIK, After won Hugo award, the author Cixin Liu became quite popular among U.S and Canada sci-fi fans. Search Amazon, Goodreads or Youtu...

Re: Sci-Fi Book Recommendation: The Three-Body Trilogy

Yep, great read (so far, I'm in the middle of the second volume). The 2nd volume The Dark Forest is my favorite among the trilogy. I still remember the first time I finish it in three days around ten years ago. What an immersive reading experience! It was a little hard for me to get into the story ...

Re: Sci-Fi Book Recommendation: The Three-Body Trilogy

Besides English, this trilogy has been also translated into some other languages, including German, French, Spanish, Russian etc. Seems there are quite a few friends here are from Germany, FYI, according to Wikipedia, it won 2017 Kurd-Laßwitz-Preis for Best Foreign SF work.

Re: Fun Zootopia Map (for 0.4.7.1)

I call BS on this. I think it is much easier to photo shop turn 190 over turn 290 than it is to achieve numbers like that. I've followed CmdrKeen's strategy guide and put in hundreds of hours playing this game. I have never seen numbers like that. And I only built 6 Robocruisers with no shields and...

Re: Fun Zootopia Map (for 0.4.7.1)

I need to get back in to the balance pass I'm working on, it's far too easy to get numbers like that when you know what you're doing. Monster nests can be really powerful if you push them and get some good results early. Agreed, I posted this map here for it's really fun(even a little bit weird) to...

Re: Fun Zootopia Map (for 0.4.7.1)

You achieved almost 6K PP and almost 2k RP in under 200 turns? I have my doubts... And you're calling a Robotic Hull cruiser a "Battleship"? Really? And those were the only warships you built? Again, I have my doubts... Follow an optimal strategy strictly, you can make it happen, and may better tha...

Fun Zootopia Map (for 0.4.7.1)

I don't know if there are any tricks of FreeOrion's RNG implementation, but it makes this map quite fun. I name this map "Zootopia" because wild animals roam everywhere, if you tame them ASAP, you can exploit them to beat the AI opponents, otherwise you will be overwhelmed soon. The game configurati...
