I think it's a good idea too :)

I also like the rail launcher thingy... could also be used to sling a huge balls of minerals at high speed at enemy planets ... just like in Stars! ...

But with relocation, you could basicly just start to move the people, and when they are in the ship (like 1 turn away from destination), you could blow them up?

The in-program solution would be simple : the fleet moves with the speed of the slowest unit in the fleet. It's always been that way. The speed of each vessel could be displayed in the fleet window next to it (in red if it's lower than the fastest ship in the fleet, so that the slowpokes could be e...

Or maybe even an option to the content like:

1. Take it apart (loose the artifact but gain in research)
2. Learn to use it (if it's an alien ship, you get it under control etc...)

the Pods could contain just generic "Alien tech" and by researching it, you could have small (or huge) leaps in tech research...

Then they would give you nothing you couldn't get other ways (?)

Or it could be a sum of all techs you have learned :)

Only suggestion is I'd like to be very few of these and they should be very important. Probably something that you can't possibly get any other way, like an orion's ship, magnate civ, Gaia, 5th X... I think so too... BUT ... it shouldn't be any sort of "ultimate" thingy, like a huge undestructible ...

Me thinks there should be a "slider" or something to set the "faith" for the religion... as you can't except 100% of the creatures under your controll believe in one thing or atleast not believe in it 100% ... there are those who don't believe, those who do, and those who kill others for not believi...

...and if the artifact is mechanical and from a far advanced race, you might be able to screw things up and set it off so that it kills X % of the population on the planet it is researched :?: :roll:

Nothing goes without a risk ;)

Re: Interesting proposal

What would also be interesting, is if through researching, transporting or manufacturing biological weapons you might accidentally cause a biological spill, which could result in an outbreak on one of your planets. This sounds good, as then it wouldn't be totally unrisky to make them... Something w...
